Q: How accurate are the measurements of the beds listed on your site.
A: We measure from outside corner to outside corner. We error on the large side, due to the fact
that buys are usually most concerned with the bed fitting in to a defined space
such as a kennel.
Q: I purchased a Peluche chew resistant dog bed. It seems that the holes don't line up. What might I be doing wrong?
A: The most common cause of this is tightening one corner before attaching the other three. See step four of the instructions. If step four is not done on all corners before doing step five things will not line up. You can down load the instructions here
Q: Are your beds Chew proof
A: Nothing is completely chew proof. Some dogs have been able to chew and dig through stucco, dry wall and various other hard materials. We believe our Chew Resistant line of dog beds are as close to chew proof as you can get. The fabric portion of the bed is enclosed inside the PVC pipes. This reduces the chewable surface.
