❥ Why buy a dog bed? ❥
Dog beds are as necessary as your own bed or your children’s bed can be. It is a personal and private space in which your pet can relax and enjoy resting for hours.
These beds are specially designed for them, which means that they have shapes and fabrics that give them the highest level of satisfaction. Also, keep in mind that some dog breeds enjoy more when they have a certain level of independence at bedtime, and with a bed, for them, you will make it clear where you want them to sleep. All this makes the bed sleep a very valuable item for them.
Another good reason to buy a dog bed is that there are older dogs for which certain tissues help their bodies to rest more and have a better quality of life.

Simply spectacular. If I could travel back in time and gift a small dog bed to my first pet, there is no question it would be this Petfusion bed. I still know a dog, neither mine nor friends or family, that does not sleep like a dormouse in this bed.
In this video you can see the different sizes and how they can be disassembled for washing:
A cheap dog bed, but with good finishes, comfortable and, also, with a beautiful design. It is made up of two parts: a base and a removable cushion.
The bottom of the base is made of waterproof and non-slip plastic, while the cushion is filled with cotton and lined with soft velvet that will make it your dog’s favourite place.
In addition, it is a reversible cushion. Its grey side works perfectly for the cold of fall and winter, while the brown is designed to cope with the heat of summer and spring.
With a soft suede exterior and corduroy interior, this Pecute brand dog bed offers reasonable quality and is a very good buy, especially considering its price.
It is available in sizes S, M and L and its design incorporate a raised pillow, which provides support for the head and neck of pets, as well as generating an enveloping effect that favours rest. Its polyester filling is not a good idea if your dog is very sensitive or has osteoarthritis problems, but it is comfortable for most pets.
The inner cushion is reversible and, although it cannot be removed, it can be washed in the washing machine.
This Feandrea brand dog bed has a sofa-like design, which allows your pet to support its head and have extra comfort. The quality of its materials is good, it has a reasonable price and very favourable opinions from other customers.
Its cotton-filled cushion is reversible. One side is warmer and ideal for winter, while the other is better for hot weather.
This comfortable sofa is available in three sizes, so you will find one that is perfect for your dog, whether it is small, large or medium.
Available in various sizes, this Bedsure brand mattress has a very good value for money. In fact, despite the fact that beds for large dogs tend to be more expensive, the XL size of this product is quite inexpensive when compared to other brands.
The mattress is made with a foam that mimics the structure of an egg carton, which makes it softer and more comfortable than a solid foam block. In fact, the manufacturer sells it like an orthopaedic bed. And while it’s far from the joint relief a memory bed provides, it’s far better than standard dog beds.
❥What to consider before buying the perfect dog bed Size❥
Can you imagine sleeping on a mattress with your feet dangling from it? If you haven’t tried it, don’t, because you’ll have a horrible night, even if you sleep in the fetal position. Well, the same thing happens to your pet.
But how to choose the bed size for your dog? Regardless of whether it is small, medium or large, take this advice. Before buying a bed, measure your dog from the muzzle to the base of his tail when he is in his sleeping position. Then add an additional 20-30 cm to this measurement to determine the length or diameter of the bed.
If you have doubts between two-bed sizes, my advice is that you always choose the largest one. Little Terriers may enjoy lounging on a bed the size of a Great Dane, but the reverse is not going to work (although it is hilarious to watch). If there is room for your dog to feel wrapped up, you can always add his favourite stuffed animal, a blanket or a shirt of yours. Your smell will make him feel safe and rest better.
In general, all the dog beds available today are very well manufactured and designed for the comfort and rest of your pet. However, if your faithful friend is getting older or has problems with osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia or the like, then you should definitely buy an orthopaedic dog bed.
Yes, beds with memory foam mattresses for dogs also exist. Also called memory foam or memory foam, due to its ability to adapt to the shape of the body, beds with this type of mattress are the ideal solution to protect your dog’s joints and make him rest without pain.
Of course, even if your dog has no problem and is not even older, viscoelastic beds are still an excellent option. So if the price is not an issue for you, treat yourself to your best friend!
❥Ease of Cleaning❥
Your dog may be very well taught, but mine has peed, pooped and vomited on me several times in their newly bought bed. Regardless of your pet, accidents happen and a smelly bed will be unpleasant for both your pet and you.
It is best to opt for a bed or mattress that can be completely washed in the washing machine or a removable dog bed. So you can wash it as many times as necessary and it will always be impeccable.
To taste the colours, but for me, pink is the ideal colour for small dogs. And I don’t care if I’m male or female, I’m not sexist. Both my Chihuahua and my Yorkie sleep on a bubblegum pink dog bed, the Schnauzer on a pale pink and the German Shepherd has gotten away because I was not able to find a large dog bed in that colour. So, you got a pretty dull grey.
The range of colours and designs is so wide that it will be difficult for you not to find something that you like and that, in addition, combines with your decoration, if you wish. In case you are wondering, the answer is no, my house is not decorated in pink tones.
More than use, maybe I should talk about location. Because the use is clear. Let your dog sleep soundly and lie comfortably watching life go by and waiting for you to finish your human chores to pay attention to it.
Where is your pet’s resting place? In general, small and medium-sized dogs tend to have it within their own home, but many large dogs prefer to sleep in the garden. In this case, outdoor beds are a good solution.
Outdoor dog beds and mattresses will protect your pet from the cold and humidity and will allow him to rest outdoors with the greatest comfort. Many of them are made of special materials or are raised beds, in such a way that they do not come into direct contact with the ground.
A travel bed for dogs that you can put in the trunk will make the trip of your pet much more comfortable. In this way, your dog will be calmer, especially if he does not like cars too much.
Before we have talked to you about orthopaedic beds, with memory foam mattresses, for those pets with osteoarthritis problems or who are simply more demanding, but there are many more types of dog beds depending on their materials:
- Wooden beds or plastic beds – They have very interesting shapes (many of them armchair-like) and provide an extra design to your home, as well as more glamour and/or comfort to your pet. Most of them come with a built-in mattress, but for some models, you will have to buy it separately.
- Cool beds – If it is very hot, a good option may be cooling beds, which, as their name suggests, keep the surface cool and make your dog better cope with the heat waves so common in recent years. These cooling mats usually use the animal’s own body temperature to cool down, which makes them very comfortable to use, since they ‘recharge’ themselves, without the need for water or electricity.
- Resistant beds – Whether due to psychological problems, such as separation anxiety, because they are still puppies or, simply because they are more restless than average, many dogs end up tearing or nibbling their resting place, rendering it useless. If this is the case with your pet, unbreakable dog beds are a very good solution. Yes, their price is usually higher, but they are very resistant and are still cheaper than buying a new bed every month.
- Waterproof beds – for dogs that sleep outside or for those who continue to pee in the same place where they rest. These are beds with a fully liquid-resistant covering, removable and easy to wash in the washing machine.
