We sent one of our beds for testing at Lammermuir Gundogs in the Scottish Borders. Here's what they had to say:
"We have been testing a Modin Bed for about 6 months now and have really put it through its paces. We are extremely impressed! They are very robust, waterproof and I mean really waterproof and lightweight. The most impressive bit for us is the integrated anti-spill water bowl. Our dogs now have access to water when they want it, without our worrying about it spilling or them tipping the bowl over in the back of the car or in their transit cages. Our dogs are transported a lot so this is essential for us especially during the grouse season in the summer months. The welfare of our dogs is paramount to us and the use of phthalate free fabric and food safe plastic in the beds gives us peace of mind, knowing that we are not putting our dogs in contact with potentially harmful chemicals. All in all, we really like Modin Beds and would be happy to recommend them to anyone."
Lammermuir Gundogs is a dog training kennels in the Scottish Borders, just south of Edinburgh. Run by Steven and Allison Leach, they provide one to one and group training for dogs and their owners. Lammermuir Gundogs can often be seen giving gundog demonstrations at various country shows in the region, such as Hopetoun Horse trials, nr Edinburgh. Check them out at www.lammermuirgundogs.co.uk.
We are really grateful to Steven and Allison for being involved in the testing of our beds and appreciate their positive feedback - thanks guys!
