The KONA CAVE® Snuggle Cave Bed was designed by Kristen Geldermann, a former executive at Polo Ralph Lauren, who was inspired to design her own dog bed after not being able to find a high-quality dog bed that met all her dog’s natural sleeping needs.

Kristen’s dog Kona, loved to sleep under blankets, lean against pillows and scratch and fluff his sleeping pillow before laying down.  When Kristen moved to Germany, Kona was no longer allowed to sleep in the people’s bed and she was unable to find a dog bed that offered Kona all the sleeping comforts that he needed: a snuggly cover, supportive sides to lean against and a pillow he could fluff before lying down.  In addition, the bed needed to be high-quality and look great in their designer apartment.

Out of options, Kristen applied her fifteen plus years of fashion and luxury retail experience into designing the perfect bed for Kona.  After extensive research on canine sleeping instincts, endless cave bed design prototypes and more than two years of intensive testing, the patented Snuggle Cave Bed was realized.

Finally, a dog bed that fulfills all of Kona’s sleeping instincts and looks great too.

Since then, the full range of KONA CAVE® products has grown to include unique pet bed designs, orthopedic mattresses, pet blankets and interiors, dog collars and leashes, dog toys, dining dishes and the very popular Doggy Décor Sets.

What Do My Pets Sleeping Habits Tell Me?

No one knows your dog better than you. Observe their sleeping habits, do they like to snuggle under the covers or into blankets and pillows? Do they like to curl up when they sleep? Do they like to stretch out?

If they like to take up lots of room when they sleep, or they twist and turn and move around whilst dreaming the night away, you might want to size up. If your dog likes to sleep curled up, they should have plenty of room in the recommended size bed for their weight. Please pay attention to the cave opening height measurement, as particularly tall or long dogs might prefer a larger size.

KONA CAVE's Superior design is more spacious and comfortable for your pet

The KONA CAVE® Snuggle Cave Bed is more spacious and comfortable than other domed canopy beds because only the KONA CAVE® canopy/cave cover is attached at the base of the bed, rather than at the top of the bed cushions. This gives your pet a lot more room to stretch out and enjoy their Snuggle Cave.
