Possibly the cosiest dog bed ever designed
Charley Chau’s signature bed is the Snuggle Bed, the design that launched the company when co-founder Christine Chau set out to make a bed for her Italian Greyhounds Charley and Anna. Think luxe sleeping bag for dogs with a really comfortable mattress in the base, the Snuggle Bed has a stitched-in blanket top and cosy, faux-fur fleece lining that invites the dog that loves to burrow in blankets, to climb inside for a tucked-up sleep. Hitting tops marks with dog owners is the Snuggle Bed in decadent and ever so soft Cloud Velour, dotty multi-colour cotton print in Great Spot, and goes-with-everything Weave Slate.
Charley Chau Double Fleece Dog Blanket
Soft, cosy and warm, this is THE essential dog item for everyday and everywhere use from dog bed to sofa to car. Made from a super high-quality fleece, the Double Fleece Dog Blanket is breathable, moisture-wicking, non-static and best of all the anti-pil fabric washes beautifully, time after time so there’s no risk of unsightly bobbling. Available in a choice of five classic colours for stylish pairing with both your pet’s bed and your home, the most popular shades are Oyster and Charcoal, with the new Powder Grey quickly becoming a hit too!
Charley Chau Deeply Dishy Bed
The Deeply Dishy takes its name from the deep, cosy sides and deep-filled luxury mattress that make it the perfect spot to hunker down for a sound snooze. A super-comfy dog bed with clean simple lines, it comes in three different robust fabric options to withstand a dog’s daily demands – cotton, weave and velour – and in a multitude of colourways, so there are options to suit every home. It is most popular with Charley Chau’s global customer base in the dark grey of Weave Slate, a contrasting colour pop in Teal and Fuchsia Velour, and a very pretty shade of Dotty Dove Grey in Cotton.
Charley Chau Ducky Donut
A donut bed with a difference, the ‘Ducky Donut’ was six years in development to ensure it stays as comfy and stylish over time as the day it was bought. The bed’s sides are filled with six individual ethically sourced, duck-feather filled pads, so your dog can squish and squash until they get their sleeping spot just right, but it will plump right back to shape every time. The mattress is deep-filled with insulating hollow-fibre, constructed with internal wall panels to minimise fibre-migration to avoid those very unwelcome post-wash lumps and bumps that interfere with a dog’s dreaming. Available in five shades in an upholstery-quality, brushed cotton feel fabric, subtle China Gray is the number one best seller in this style, followed by Dark Gray and pretty Blush.
Charley Chau Faux-Fur Blankets
Customers can’t get enough of these Faux-Furs when it comes to luxe-ing up a dog’s existing bed or providing a decadent dog-spot on the sofa, armchair or back seat of the car. A real treat for your dog and simply divine, Charley Chau Faux-Fur Dog Blankets are indescribably soft, super-stylish and machine washable too. Backed with a co-ordinating super-soft fleece, they are a real joy to snuggle into and under. There are six colourways to choose from but best in show with Charley Chau customers are neutral Oatmeal, Wolf Grey to match grey and other cool colour schemes and snowy Polar Bear to pair with natural wood interiors and paler palettes.
Charley Chau Crate Bedding
Dog crates can look cold and unwelcoming instead of a cosy little den but Charley Chau has designed a stylish Crate Bedding Set to transform a crate into a comfy, safe and stylish place to retire to for some quality down time. Charley Chau Crate Sets have a super-comfy mattress and cosy crate bumpers that wrap around the sides of the crate for a dog to hunker down in. Waterproof dog bed liners, spare covers and replacement mattresses help make life that bit easier too from a maintenance perspective. The most popular picks are Weave Slate and Dotty Charcoal in Cotton, darker colours that are forgiving of muddy paws.
