Do Dogs Really Need Their Own Bed?

It's not uncommon for pet parents to wonder whether their dog should get their own bed. After all, couldn't they just sleep on the couch or in your bed? Learn More

The answer is yes! Dogs are den animals by nature and love having their own warm, cosy place to retreat to when they want to rest or sleep.

A dog bed also gives them a spot to call their own where they feel safe and secure. This is especially important for a rescue dog or puppy adjusting to its new home.

What Are the Benefits of Investing in a Dog Bed?

There are many other benefits to investing in a quality dog bed. Not only will it make your pet happy, but it will also:

  • Improve their sleep. A good night's rest is crucial for both humans and animals. By giving your puppy their own area, you can help them relax at night and promote a long, uninterrupted sleep.
  • Protect your furniture. Does your pet love to sleep on the couch? If so, you know how frustrating it can be to try and keep your furniture clean. A dog bed will give them a comfortable place to doze off without ruining your upholstery.
  • Provide insulation. A dog bed can help insulate your pets from cold floors and paws in the winter and provide a cooler space to lie on in the summer.
  • Elevate their joints. Many pet beds are designed to elevate your pet's joints while they snooze. This comfortable sleeping position can improve their health by reducing joint pain and inflammation.

How to Choose the Right Dog Bed for a Good Night's Sleep

With a wealth of different dog beds on the market, it can be hard to know which one is right for your pet. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a bed for your dog:

Measure Your Dog from Nose to Tail and from Paws to Paws

The size of your dog is the most crucial factor to consider when choosing a bed. You don't want to choose one that's too small or too large for your pet.

To get their length, take a tape measure and run it from the tip of your dog's nose to the base of their tail. For width, measure from the widest part of the paw (when standing) to the other paw. We recommend adding a few inches to these measurements to ensure the bed is comfortable for your dog.

Check Their Sleeping Position

Dogs typically lie in one of three positions: on their stomach with their legs outstretched, on their side with legs curled up, or on their back with their legs in the air.

Observe your puppy for a few days and see if you can identify their preferred sleeping position. This will help you choose a comfortable bed that gives them enough room to move around. If your pets love to lay on their side, for example, a raised cot-style bed may not be the best option.

Think About Their Age and Activity Level

If you have a puppy or younger dog, you'll want to choose a bed that's durable enough to stand up to their energy and playfulness. Meanwhile, an older pet or one with arthritis may need one with extra cushioning and support.

Consider the Material

Most of our mattresses either come in fabric or memory foam. Consider your pet's needs when choosing a material. If they have joint pain, memory foam may be a good option. If they tend to shed a lot, a fabric bed may be easier to keep clean.

We also provide a variety of different covers for our offerings. If your dog is prone to accidents, waterproof beds will be a good option. Anti-chew covers are also available for pets with destructive tendencies.

Comparing Styles: From Dog Blankets to Plush Loungers

Once you've considered your pet's needs, it's time to start looking at different styles of beds. Here is a quick overview of some of the most popular types of dog beds:

  • Dog Blankets: Affordable, versatile, and easy to clean, blankets are an excellent option for many dogs. They usually come in fleece, cotton, or another soft material, and you can easily wash them in the laundry machine.
  • Dog Loungers. A dog lounger is a solid choice for dogs who like to snuggle on their side. They typically have a raised edge that your pets can lean against and often come in a plush fabric or memory foam.

Different Cover Designs and Colours to Match Your Aesthetic

We have a wide variety of stylish dog beds to suit any taste. Whether you want a minimalistic and modern design or a cosy and traditional sleeping area, we have something for everyone. We also offer a wide range of colours so you can find the perfect match for your home.
