How to Choose the Perfect Dog Bed

Measure your dog and choose a bed about 2 inches wider and longer than their size when lying down.


Senior dogs need orthopedic beds. Puppies do best with plush, washable beds.


Orthopedic beds support dogs with joint pain. Cooling beds help hot, prone-to-overheat dogs.

Health Issues

Get a durable, chew-proof bed for puppies and aggressive chewers.


Elevated beds promote air circulation. cave-like beds provide a cozy, secure space.

Shelter Type

Memory foam is best for achy joints. Avoid luxurious fabrics for dogs that will dig and chew.


Beds with removable, machine-washable covers are easy to keep clean.
