Heated Dog Beds

Updated on August 30, 2009

Whether you've got an indoor pooch or an outdoor pooch, you've probably got a dog who would very much enjoy a good snuggle with a warm bed on a cold or chilly night. And, believe it or not, there are several very high quality heated dog beds available for just that purpose. That, and there are even outdoor heated dog beds for those pooches who like to stay outside. There are electric dog beds and self-warming dog beds, so even if you've got a dog who chews, you can keep him safe and warm at the same time -- and he will love you for it.

K&H Lectro Pad

This electric heated dog pad made by K&H can be used indoors or outdoors and is perfect for using in the dog crate, whelping box, sitting on the porch, the backyard, the dog house or anywhere else Fido likes to relax. There is a thermostat inside which keeps the temperature set to 100 F (37.7 C) so you don't need to worry about setting it (though you will probably still want to check it periodically to make sure the temperature doesn't feel too warm.) The cable is wire-wrapped for extra safety protection and the removable faux-lambskin cover is machine washable.

Pet Safe Pet Bed Warmer

If you've got a dog who doesn't want a new bed and prefers to use his old one, the Pet Safe bed warmer is a good option for you. Simply place the bed warmer under his bed/mattress and it will heat the area up. The double-insulated cord is chew-resistant and the warmer itself is low-voltage and low-energy. The cover is made of vinyl (easy to clean) and it comes with a one year warranty.

K&H Soft Lectro Bed

This is another high quality heated pet bed from K&H. The soft Lectro bed can be used outdoors in the dog house, the porch, the kennel, etc and the soft exterior means you don't necessarily need an extra cover to make it comfy. It uses 60 watts and maintains at 102 F (38.8 C) but, as I said before, you will probably want to check it periodically to make sure the temperature is where you want it. The cord is steel wrapped for extra safety BUT if you've got a chewer, this bed is NOT recommended -- go with the original (first model at the top of the page) which is far more sturdy.

Snuggle Safe Heatpad

This Snuggle Safe heatpad thing is pretty nifty, I have to say. It's about the size of a frisbee and it contains a non-toxic substance called Thermapol. You stick it in the microwave and follow the instructions based on whatever size microwave you happen to have and then it heats up -- and stays heated for 12 hours. Although it is scratch and bite resistant, this is not a toy and your pet should not be allowed to play with it or chew on it. It's meant to be placed under a bed or wrapped in a specially designed Snuggle Safe cover. There isn't a cord and it's easy to clean.

K&H Heated Ortho Pet Bed

Yet another quality K&H pet bed. This one is designed for dogs who need the orthopedic support. It's made from two layers of very thick orthopedic foam and will fully support even the large breeds. The temperature maintains at 102 F (38.8 F) (as I've said before you will probably want to double it check it from time to time) and the cord is steel wrapped. Being soft in nature it's not intended for destructive dogs who will chew -- if you've got a dog who likes to nibble, go with the first model on this page.

Self Warming Dog Bed

If you're not comfortable with the idea of leaving your dog alone with an electrical bed, this is going to be the product you want. This self-warming thermal dog bed contains a space-age heat reflective material that warms up when your dog lays on it. (I had something like this on my bed as a teenager and I can tell you they work well.) It's even machine washable!
