Dogs are usually viewed as a member of the family and deserve to have a comfortable dog bed to sleep in. Everyone wants to rest in comfort and you would not want to sleep on an uncomfortable bed. Dogs have very different sleep patterns depending on breed and most dogs will sleep for at least half of the day. There are some dogs that even sleep more then that, about 16 hours a day.
The size of your dog will dictate the size of bed to purchase. Dogs don’t like too much room as they like to feel secure, so the bed should envelope them without being too small. Dog beds that have sidewalls or are curved tend to make a dog feel very safe and secure. If you have a large dog then you need to make sure the bed is sturdy or the dog will break the bed when it gets up.
Puppies and older dogs will need a different type of bed. Puppies generally do not have difficulties getting in or out of a bed though you do not want to buy a bed with sides that are very high as your puppy may not be able to climb into the bed. Older dogs with arthritis or stiff joints will need a bed that is easier to enter and exit. There are also orthopedic beds that are heated and soothe your dogs’ aches and pains.

As long as the bed is comfortable, your dog will be happy and will not care how much you spent on the dog bed. There are dog beds in every price range so don’t feel you have to buy a very expensive bed.
