How to Choose the Perfect Dog Bed A new dog bed is a big investment, and with so many options to choose from the task can seem a little daunting. Dogs have become such an important part of the modern family, so if like us, you want to integrate your faithful friend into the heart of your home, a stylish, well-designed and durable dog bed is a must. For one, they require a good quality mattress that will hold its shape, even with a big heavy pooch snoozing on it all day.
You also need to consider how you dog likes to sleep — do they curl up, or spread out, or both? The best dog beds for large breeds or those who love to sprawl out are pillow or cushion style dog beds.
Brush with mild detergent and rinse off—dries in just a few minutes. Heated dog beds are most useful for older dogs, sick dogs, dogs recovering from surgery, and dogs who have joint issues.
Unlike a box bed with a bolster around it, these have a flat surface so the dog can spread out and spill over a little if they need to. Donut beds can work well too if the outer bolster is soft and not too high. Then you will know how much these slender dogs love to snuggle up, especially in winter when they need extra warmth and cushioning around their bodies. Or perhaps your dog is just a sucker for a good burrow under the blankets and loves nothing more than getting toasty under your duvet.
Snuggle beds like those from Charley Chau pictured above are an excellent option for small to medium size sighthounds and dogs that love to burrow and nest. They provide a thick, cushioned mattress as a base, with a protective blanket covering on the top, all of which is lined with a beautifully warm fleece. So cosy you might find yourself wanting to climb in! Older dogs have extra aches and pains often due to arthritis, and may also be a little incontinent. Plus your senior pooch could find it difficult to climb up onto a raised bed.
You will need to look at their individual needs in order to choose something that will provide the most comfort, while also being practical. If your dog is still able to climb, then a raised bed is a good option to keep them off the cold floor or away any under-door drafts.
If you dog needs something at ground level, opt for a pillow bed without high sides that is easy to get in and out of. Or a medium sized dog like a Spaniel or Staffie? Often small dogs love to curl up against something to feel protected or might even like to take some respite away from all the household activity. The best dog beds for small and medium size breeds include bolster, box and donut beds.
Pet Bubble by Singular Pets If you think you dog would like their own little crash pad, you can also opt for a dog cave or pod.

Bear in mind that if your dog is teacup size or a puppy, they may require a bed without sides so they can climb in. Shop stylish bolster and donut beds , and caves and pods.
