Why the dog chooses a Bia bed
Due to Bias edges the dog lies in a bed that is draft-free. The Bia bed is filled with a sturdy and soft polyether padding of the highest quality that is gentle on the dog’s joints and provides support for the dog’s back, neck and edge also acts as a built – in pillow. Via the soft polyether, the dog is also protected from mane, which is otherwise common if the dog is lying on a hard surface.
The Bia bed is easy to keep clean, and comfortable for the dog. It is also easy to transport because it can be rolled or folded and then takes up little space.
But the strongest advantage of Bia is that you see how well the dog thrives in bed and how rested and fresh it is after a while of rest.
The story of the dog Bia
Bia von Fürstenfeldt was the doberman who gave the name to Bia bed. In the late 60’s, the Asklöf family took over Bia after she had been treated badly by the previous owner.
At that time, alternatives for sleeping accommodation for dogs included steel-constructed beds and willow baskets, something Bia did not like very much. Bengt Asklöf, who had a past in the furniture industry, saw that she wanted to lie high with her head and that the steel pipes cut into her neck. He then designed a completely new soft model and the Bia bed was born.
The soft bed immediately became Bia’s absolute favorite. During a veterinary visit, Bia brought her bed with her because she would be allowed to stay for a couple of nights. The veterinarian quickly stated that the bed was perfect as it provided a comfortable and soft support for the head while it was comfortable to lie in.
Thanks to the veterinarian’s positive response, production of Bia Bädden started, on a small scale, only where the family together produced 5 beds a week, but demand grew and in 1969 Bengt and his wife Iris started the industrial production of Bia Bädden.
Today, the Bia bed is still manufactured in Valdemarsvik, by the family-owned company’s third generation. The basic idea is the same and Bia is constantly being developed further with modern materials and more models.
