Choosing the right bed for your dog

Choosing the right bed for your dog


If you have a dog, chances are you've spent countless hours trying to get them to sleep. You might have even gone as far as buying the “best” dog beds on the market. And while this is great for your pet's wellbeing, there may be more options out there than you think. In fact, there are many things that go into choosing the right bed for your furry friend—and it's important that you do so correctly!

Understand the sleep needs of your dog.

  • Dogs need to be able to move around.
  • Dogs need a warm bed.
  • A dog's sleeping environment should be quiet, dark and away from any traffic noise or other noises that could disturb their sleep (like barking).

Consider your dog's age and physical shape.

Your dog's age, weight and physical shape should also be considered.

For example, older dogs may require more support than younger ones. If your pet has any health issues that affect their mobility (e.g., arthritis), then you may need to make sure the bed is appropriate for them as well.

Some breeds have short legs, which means they will not be able to fit into beds with high sides or very deep mattresses—so it's important that you look out for such characteristics when choosing a bed! If your dog has long legs like dachshunds or bulldogs, then low-profile beds will be suitable; however if they have short ones such as Yorkshire terriers then consider going upmarket and investing in one with higher sides so they can stretch out comfortably without causing back pain from staying hunched over for too long on one spot at a time."

Consider your home decor and lifestyle.

Before you get started, it’s important to consider the size of your dog and the type of bed you want. If you have a small dog who likes to scratch at the floor when he sleeps or play in his bed all day long, then a simple crate pad with no mattress will be sufficient for them. However if he/ she tends to dig their nails into furniture and carpets during naps or nighttime rest periods (as many do), something softer like an orthopaedic comforter may be better suited for them instead.

If you have space available in your home then think about what kind of bed would work best for your pet over time – whether it's an oversized pile carpeted area near their window where they can lounge all day long without getting too dirty; or maybe even multiple levels so they can move around easily while still having plenty of room between themselves and those who might want some alone time!

Look for a bed that is chew-resistant.

When it comes to choosing a bed for your dog, look for one that is chew-resistant. A bed made of sturdy material will be more durable than a soft one and last longer. Additionally, you should avoid beds that are too small or too big; they will only encourage your dog to chew them up! Additionally, if the bed is loud when he moves around on it (such as squeaking), this can cause anxiety in some dogs instead of relaxation.

You can get a great bed for your dog without breaking the bank or your back.

There are several ways you can get a great bed for your dog without breaking the bank or your back.

  • Buy a bed that is comfortable for your dog. If a dog doesn't like his crate, he will get stressed out when left in there overnight, which can lead to many health problems, including obesity and heart disease if left untreated. A good way to prevent these issues is by getting him an orthopaedic foam mattress pad that's made specifically for dogs so they can enjoy their own space while sleeping on it! You should also consider buying something durable so it doesn't wear out too quickly (like wool), but also lightweight enough so that when moved around sometimes it won't cause any damage due to being overweighted down during transport between different locations where someone might want them stored temporarily until another person needs something else stored temporarily instead since everyone gets sick at some point during life after all...


Choosing a bed for your dog is not a difficult decision. It's important to understand the different types of beds available and make an informed decision about what will work best for your pet. Remember that you should choose a durable, chew-resistant option that can be washed easily and will last until they outgrow it!
