WELCOME TO BIABED
A dog bed for life
The Bia bed has become a Swedish classic, a bed the dog chooses to lie in.
The story began with a doberman named Bia, she did not have a comfortable sleeping place but her owner Bengt worked in the furniture industry and made a bed for her. Bengt started a industri and the same model is sold today, 50 years later. Still in the family owned company.
Of all dog beds, the Swedish made Bia is the bestseller in Scandinavia. The powerful artificial leather that is the outer shell of the bed is durable and easy to clean. The Swedish polyether provides ergonomic support for the dog while the edges of the bed appeal to the dog’s instincts from wolf genes. But the most important of all benefits is of course that the dog is comfortable in the bed.
The Bia Bed is available in varying sizes to suit all dog breeds and can be fitted with soft cover as an accessory. With luxurious velvet covers, soft cotton coverings and furry fleece covers, Bia becomes a beautiful interior detail for the home. Manufactured in Valdemarsvik, Östergötland since 1969.
How much does a dog sleep?
That a dog sleeps more than us humans is perhaps something that you have noticed. But how many hours do a dog sleep? And a more important question is, how many hours do a dog need to sleep?
The need for sleep varies. Large dogs are more in need of sleep than small. Puppies need more sleep than adult dogs.
- Puppies can sleep almost all the time.
- Young dogs, about six months old, sleep between 16-20 hours.
- An adult dog generally sleeps 12-18 hours a day.
Sleep deficiency for dogs can lead to stress and a decreased immune system. The dog may have difficulties to concentrate and may be irritated. In other words, just like us people. A good sleep helps keep the dog healthy.
Therefore it is so important that the dog has his own place where it can feel safe and rest and sleep without being disturbed. If there is a child in the family, it’s good to teach them this as soon as you can. Do not disturb the dog in his Bia Bed, especially when it’s sleeping.

Where to place the dog bed?
Place your Bia Bed where the dog seems to be comfortable. Sometimes it may be good to try different positions before finding the best place where the dog relaxes the most. The dog and man do not always have the same view of what feels most secure.
They would like to be with the family, their pack, so that they feel involved and can supervise the family members. Here, the built-in pillow in Bia comes well for use, the dog puts up the head on the edge that acts like a pillow and they can observe the family. When they sleep heavily, they usually curl up.
