Charley Chau featured on ITV: Britain’s Top 100 Dogs Live!
So exciting to see lots of our gorgeous Charley Chau beds and blankets on ITV’s Britain’s Top 100 Dogs Live hosted by Ben Fogle and Sara Cox. We were literally beside ourselves! After being named UK Family Business Entrepreneurs of the Year at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards last week we didn’t think our start to 2019 could get any better … but it did!
The moment Ben Fogle lay down on a Charley Chau Snuggle Bed in Velour Lime live on national television - we were tickled pink!
Britain’s Top 100 Dogs Live aired at 7.30pm on Tuesday 29 January on ITV, a two-and-a-half hour live television broadcast counting down the UK’s top 100 dog breeds as voted for by the British public with the Staffordshire Bull Terrier being crowned Top Dog on the night.
Funnily enough it’s not every day that a prime-time TV show contacts a small business like Charley Chau. We jumped at the chance when Ricochet, one of the UK’s top TV production companies who produced the programme, contacted us to ask if Charley Chau would supply our dog beds for the live show after our Day Bed in Velour Tangerine & Claret had caught the eye of the set designer! Amazing to think that of all the dog beds in the UK, they chose Charley Chau!

With so many different dogs of all different breeds due to star on the show we had a little think about how best to keep so many different dogs happy. Charley Chau’s focus is always on comfort, styling and quality, and different dogs have different needs, so we provided a range of different beds from our collection that we felt could work on the night ... not all of them made it on screen but we were delighted that our Snuggle Bed in Velour Lime and Ducky Donut Dog Bed in Blush and China Gray and our Faux-Fur Blanket in Oatmeal were used as part of the studio set throughout the live broadcast!
The hilarious moment when the naughty bloodhound decided to try to eat our Snuggle Bed live on national television! Luckily the bed survived!
It has been amazing to see our products on live television. Back in 2010 when we first made a Snuggle Bed on the sitting room floor we never dreamed that we end up with customers in over sixty countries around the world and our beds and blankets appearing live on prime-time television! We are just totally over the moon!
A huge thank you to the team Britain's Top 100 Dogs Live team at Ricochet and ITV from Team Charley Chau!
