Desirable Features in a Dog Bed

  • Provides comfort
  • Conserves your dogs' body heat
  • Protects bony prominences
  • Easy to clean/washable
  • Durable
  • Waterproof and resists moisture

    Ideal Choice for a Dog Bed

  • A slightly elevated dog bed style with soft polyfill conserves heat and the slightly elevated style protects your pet from floor drafts. This bed combines softness and comfort with durability. Choose a style with a machine washable cover that can easily be thrown in the washing machine when dirty or soiled.

    Shopping Tips for Buying a Dog Bed

  • When choosing a dog bed, consider your dog's size and choose one that will fit him as an adult.

  • Consider a dog bed or matt that fits in his crate to make his “home” more comfortable.

  • When testing the bed filling, it should be springy, not compacted, after repeated use.

  • Choose sturdy materials that can't be ripped or consumed by your dog.

  • Donut or nesting contour shaped dog beds fit around your dog to let him nestle in the center.

  • Some dog beds have an inner wrap that keeps moisture from getting into and ruining core filling.
