If you have been to a shelter or rescue, chances are you’ve seen dogs relaxing on a Kuranda Dog Bed while they wait for their forever family. There are excellent reasons for that; they have a wonderful “Donate a Bed” program where you can donate a bed to your favorite shelter at deep discounts and shelters know that the Kuranda brand will stand up against a wide range of environments.
Kuranda USA is family-owned and operated. All of their products are manufactured in Glen Burnie, MD. They have been making and selling dog beds since 1987. The introduction of the rectangular bed in 1995 made them a huge success. The poly resin bed came on the market in 1998 with an aluminum version being introduced in 2003.
We received the standard walnut PVC dog bed along with a Kuranda Double-Sided Luxury Fleece Pad. I couldn’t wait to put it together so I grabbed the instructions, a Phillips Head screwdriver and an adjustable wrench. It was easy to put together and because the fabric edges are secured in the tubes, it doesn’t slide or move when your dog does. The standard PVC bed holds up to 125 lbs. and the all-aluminum bed can hold 250 lbs.
The PVC tubes are made of 2 different types of plastic that are fused together. The inside material gives the bed its structural strength and the hard outer shell provides a furniture grade finish that is extremely resistant to damage from chemicals. You can clean all of their beds with soap and warm water. Bleach solutions are okay to use on their heavy duty vinyl and outdoor mesh, but it could discolor the smooth and textured nylon fabrics. They can even be hosed off which makes these beds perfect for shelters and rescues.
Within a few minutes, the bed was together and peaking the interest of two very noisy dogs. I slid the straps of the fleece pad over the bed’s legs and it was ready for the big test. Would the Bayou Boys like it? No, they LOVED it! Usually, when we introduce a new bed, they take their sweet time trying it. I had barely set it down when they were both trying to call “Dibs” on it.

They are currently holding a fun “Identity Crisis” photo contest where pet parents can submit a picture of their dog caught in the act of sleeping in human spaces without their human! Does your pup stake claim to the couch, recliner, bed, or favorite chair? Grab your camera and snap your entry for a chance to win the Kuranda bed in the color and fabric of your choice. They are a company that gives back to the dog community. That is why they are donating 5% of all sales made by those who enter the contest to the Service Dog Project. This nonprofit group has donated over 100 Great Danes as service dogs for people with severe balance and mobility issues. Read more about the contest on ‘Fido Files Investigates the Identity Crisis.’
I could not be happier with our new bed and the fleece pad. Bentley is sound asleep on it as I am writing this review. This is a bed that I will recommend to all of my pet parents including my feline friends. Kuranda makes cat beds, towers, and kitty cots, too.
