Dark Stone (grey) with contrasting yellow handle. Available in Small & Large.

With the growing trend of small dog ownership, it can be difficult to find a great choice of designs for those of us who love the large or giant breeds. Fear not, we found some beds which will accommodate the largest of them all without sacrificing comfort or style!

The new Henry Hottie XL-HD bed stands for Extra Large High Density and is a smaller version of their popular XXL (Giant Breed) bed. The bed base is made of a specially designed thermal fibre whilst the top layer is a less dense thermal fibre combination, very similar to the comfort layer on a high-end human bed. 

Large and giant breeds need all the support they can get as joint problems can often surface around 2 years of age. This bed will offer superb support for dogs ranging from 45kg up to 110kg, allowing them to fully stretch without losing vital support around the head, neck and lower back.  

RRP: $220 from
