Best Dog Beds

Updated on February 2, 2015

Best Dog Beds

Your dog deserves the best of everything, and when it comes to dog beds there is a perfect bed for every dog and owner. From normal pillow syle beds, rectangular foam beds, and round dog beds, up to luxury canopy dog beds, sofa dog beds, heated and orthopedic dog beds right on up to side table furniture style dog beds, there is a bed for your dog.

Dog beds don't have to cramp your style either. Dog beds come in sleek modern styles, some have animal prints, others are fit for a princess. There are even dog beds fit for a log cabin, or ones that camouflage as furniture. Enjoy the wide selection.

With so much to choose from you are sure to find the best dog bed in your price range right here. Make your pooch happy and get him a nice comfy stylish dog bed to rest in after a long day playing with you.

Choosing the right dog bed for your dog is a very important decision. Your dog will spend many hours lying on his bed and needs to have a bed that is comfortable, the right size and appropriate for how he sleeps. Before making your decision for which dog bed to buy consider the following:

-Sleeping Position How does your dog normally sleep? All curled up in a ball, or stretched out on his side? A dog that likes to curl up in a ball will probably be more comfortable in a round dog bed such as a donut bed, or a nest style bed, often with bumpers around it. A dog that likes to stretch out would be better suited to a rectangular or square dog bed or a pillow bed.

-Size How big is your dog? Your dog's bed should be able to fit your dog without hanging off the sides. Ideally it should fit them when they are lying on their side fully stretched out.

-Age How old is your dog? If your dog is a senior, he will need a comfortable well padded bed to keep his arthritic joints comfortable. An orthopedic dog bed might be best for a senior dog.

- Fabric Does your dog have allergies? If so you might consider a machine washable, hypoallergenic dog bed, and one that has a cover that can be washed. Is your dog a scratcher? Then you need a strong durable fabric, or a cot dog bed that will withstand the roughness.

-Style of your home Consider the style or look of your home. There are so many dog beds to choose from that you should be able to get a dog bed that suits both your dogs needs, and your style.

Orthopedic Dog Beds

Orthopedic dog beds will comfortably support elderly dogs or dogs with arthritis, joint pain or other needs. Some orthopedic dog beds also come with waterproof covers. Foam cores, or egg crate cores provide extra support and comfort.

      So many great dog beds! I think I like the bunk beds, or the Chrome end table. I think my dog Lexie would like the couch best though.

      Charlotte likes the canopy bed best; I might have to get it for her for Christmas.
