I first heard of the Kuranda bed after we had to board our 10 year old Boxer for a week at Wagside Inn. Gus is 11 year old boxer, he is on the small side, around 65 pounds. He has arthritis in a knee and his hips. He also has a slight case of hip dysplasia, as he has gotten older it is more noticeable. I called the Wagside Inn to inquire if they had done any special massage treatments or exercises that could have explained how great he felt when he was in their care. The one and only thing they did which we did not do, was have a Kuranda bed available for him to lie on.Well needless to say, we ordered one a.s.a.p. I thought Gus would feel nervous on the bed but he LOVES it. He gathers all his toys and puts them on his new Kuranda bed and he sleeps or sits among them. The bed doesn't even move when he decides to play by jumping around on it and moving his toys with his feet, kind of digging but not with the focus of a terrier or stubborn pug. Even with using the bed as a playset, it is in perfect shape and shows no wear at this time. Best of all, the difference in his comfort level is amazing. After sleeping on it, even all night, he has no problem getting up in the morning. It is shocking the difference this bed has made to his overall comfort and wellbeing. I would not hesitate to purchase or recommend this bed to anyone.
