What is a Dog Bed

Adopting a puppy is always taking a responsibility for its life. And it’s not only about feeding and taking care, but also providing for it. Just like all other members of your family, it’s got to have comfort conditions for living. And a dog bed should be among the first things to acquire from the outset. You could let it sleep with you if you’re not against countless hairs on pillows and sheets. Sounds not that good now? Then, buying a special dog bed is a must. The market has got a lot to offer. In our review, we’ve comprehensively analyzed some of the most popular models to let you choose among the best dog beds.

You can also consider buying a dog house to provide your four-legged friend with more privacy and comfort. And a nice pet bowl will certainly please both you and your pet.

What Features to Compare

Type

Buying a dog bed is pretty simple, that’s what most of you think from the start. However, when it actually comes down to going and buying an item, customers often get lost. The choice is vast and it’s vitally important to know what differs one product from the other. All dog beds differ by type. There are pretty standard pet beds, designed to serve as a pillow or a mattress. Others have different shapes - square, round, oval, etc. Some beds with orthopedic foam are specially designed for aging dogs and those suffering from arthritis or arthrosis. They ensure solid body support and reduce strain on their joints. There are also dog beds with soft padded sides. If your pet loves curling up, burying itself in a pillow, it will be delighted with such a bed! Dog beds with heated pad are worth a special attention since they can be used literally all year round indoors and outdoors as well. If your puppy lives in a garage where it’s not exactly very warm, the heated bed will come in handy. Among other popular dog beds for outdoor use are the beds with elevated design. Raised at a distance, they neither get wet nor pick insects from the ground.

Size

The bed size is also an important aspect. Your dog won’t have comfort in too small or too narrow bed. On the other hand, it won’t feel any better in an oversized bed since it tends to conserve the heat worse. A common solution most owners have come to is that there’s very little sense in buying a massive bed for a small breed and vice versa. Big beds with dense filing suit perfectly large dogs whereas smaller items with padded sides fit smaller doggies better.

Materials

The material is what makes any bed convenient. The commonly used fabrics for producing dog beds are foam and polyester, though you can also find beds filled with cedar sawdust. Better than other materials, cedar sawdust blocks unpleasant smells and proliferation of insects. Consider the beds made of natural fabrics in order to not make your little pet suffer from allergy. If you plan to set a bed outdoors, it’s essential that it’s made of waterproof, breathable material and is easy to clean and wipe out from dirt. For indoor use, this isn’t as important. You may only be concerned about its aesthetic look.

A skid-proof base prevents the bed from sliding on the floor when your dog moves. What makes this dog bed stand out from the rest items in our review is that its filling isn't made as an entire canvas but rather sewn up from three parts. This unique design ensures that the filling always stays in place and doesn't move under your dog's weight. Besides, this bed allows for comfortable viewing, which cannot be neglected by owners of those dogs who love keeping their eye on everything around.

Dimensions

It’s really important to choose the right size of a bed for your family pet. The main aspect is to notice the way your dog prefers to sleep. If it sleeps curling itself up in a bun, you don't have to look for a big bed. But if it sleeps on its side and always rolls over, you had better buy a bigger bed. There are several sizes for different breeds: 28" x 22" x 5"; 39" x 28" x 7"; 49" x 35" x 8"; 33" x 25" x 4"; 47" x 36" x 4.5"; and 39" x 28" x 4.5".

Thanks to a wide variety of sizes and shapes, you can find the perfect one both for dogs and cats.

Materials and Place Of Use

The internal pillow is filled with 100% polyester for your pet's comfort. The cover is made of the slip-proof and waterproof material that allows you to place the bed outside. The side parts are made of dense material that your dog can't tear with its teeth. The sleeping area of the bed is made of water-resistant plush. Moreover, the additional convenience is an opportunity to wash the cover in a washing machine. In all, that's a fantastic dog bed that you can use both in your house and outside.
