Hand crafted from solid hardwood timber, the base embodies both the raw materials and elegance. A truly stunning piece to complement your home for years to come. The base requires no tools to be assembled and can be put together in less than 30 seconds. Sweet Pup has an elevated base to provide your loved one with a more consistent temperature. This allows your fur baby to retain up to 50% more body heat by not losing it through contact with the floor (much like the bed you sleep on). This also equates to better ergonomics for large breeds allowing them to exert less energy to leave the comfort of the bed on those cold mornings. The elevation helps to keep them unpleasant doggy odours at bay by allowing an appropriate air flow around the mattress.
