The Best Bed for Dogs & Puppies

Find the Perfect Puppy Beds

To choose the perfect puppy bed, there are certain things that you’ll want to keep in mind. A puppy bed is a little different than other dog beds that you might choose. For one thing, puppy beds need to be able to comfort your dog, who may not be entirely comfortable being on his or her own. That means that you want a bed that they can snuggle up in and feel safe. There are other considerations as well. Your puppy is going to grow fast, and unless you want to spend a great deal of money, you may want to go with a slightly larger size than the one that is best for your dog. You’ll have to balance that with getting them a bed that they can curl up in.

Finally, you want to take a look at the materials used, the quality of construction, how durable the bed is when it comes to chewing and other factors like style and color. You also need to make sure that your puppy can easily get in and out of their bed. A bed that is too large or too high will be difficult for puppies with short little legs to climb in comfortably and they might ignore the bed completely. We’ve organized our top picks by dog size (of full-grown dogs) so that you can ensure you get the right size of bed for your puppy:

How to find the Best Bed for your puppy

Keep reading to learn more about how to pick one!

Your new puppy deserves to feel like royalty, and one of the first steps to a happy pooch is making sure that they lounge and sleep as comfortably as they can. The best way to ensure this kind of comfort for your pup is to get a proper puppy bed for them to sleep on – and you might be surprised to find that there are more options out there than you might think.

Here’s what you need to know when selecting a puppy bed for your dog, and why it’s an absolutely essential item for a happy, healthy dog.

Considering Size and Weight

When buying a puppy bed for your dog, you should consider their size and weight – and the size and weight of the bed they’re going to need in order to be comfortable. This varies widely between breeds, and even between different dogs. Even in the same pack, no two dogs will sleep in the same way, or necessarily prefer the same bed.

When choosing a bed for your puppy, put some pressure on the bed with your hand and feel the amount of cushioning the bed offers. Would you consider it comfortable enough to sit down on? If the answer here is yes, you’ve found the right pillow – but if the answer is no to this question, consider your options and try another type of dog bed.

Easier to Clean

You should ideally clean your dog’s bed at least once per month. For some thicker types of beds, steam cleaning it is the easiest way to do it – though for most others, a thorough wipe can be enough.

Many dog beds allow you to remove the cover and stuffing to clean both separately. Of course, this is easier, but remember that some dogs can’t steer clear of things like buttons and can’t help themselves when it comes to chewing it.

Treating Your Bed?

Sometimes beds might arrive with a slight chemical smell to them when they’re shipped your way. This is just for storage reasons (mostly to keep away bugs in transit!), but some dogs will be turned off by this and refuse to sleep anywhere near their bed.

To fix this, give the bed a spray with something they associate with home – a light spray, of course – and let it air out to get the odd chemical smell out of it. You can also run the bed through your washing machine.
