Show­cas­ing some of the lat­est kit, new ideas and great-value prod­ucts for all your gundog needs

They say a pic­ture tells a thou­sand words, so this re­view will be short and sweet! For as you can see from the photos, Monty the cocker was im­me­di­ately taken with Berke­ley’s Pre­mium Raised dog bed.

Thank­fully, the bed is so in­cred­i­bly sim­ple to as­sem­ble, that my lit­tle ‘helper’ didn’t hin­der the process what­so­ever. You just slot the tough zinc-plated steel tubes to­gether, place the liner on the frame and Vel­cro to­gether. No bolts, no screws, no in­struc­tions needed! It is equally easy to take down and pack away, mak­ing the raised bed per­fect to travel with.

The weather-re­sis­tant ma­te­rial can be hosed off, swept and vac­u­umed, while the raised na­ture of the bed keeps dogs away from draughts, damp, cold (or even hot) floors.

The ham­mock-style stretched fab­ric also helps to al­le­vi­ate pres­sure points on ex­posed joints, so it’s ideal for el­derly dogs. As such, Monty now shares this bed with Teal, our Labrador of ad­vanc­ing years. I find them hap­pily curled up to­gether on it most morn­ings, snug­gled into the non-slip fleece top­per (sheep­skin or Vet Bed op­tions are also avail­able).

Light, yet sturdy (with very se­cure Vel­cro fit­tings), the bed can eas­ily be moved around from home to gar­den to ken­nel.

This one is fit­ted with Berkley’s heavy duty non-mark­ing rub­ber feet – great for outdoor use or un­even floors – but the nor­mal plas­tic feet are much less ob­tru­sive. This bed is def­i­nitely a hit with the dogs and it’s prac­ti­cal and well priced. That’s a thumbs up all round.

RRP: £50-£70 www.berke­ley­
