View Full Version : What kind of dog bed do you recommend?

6th June 2007, 07:36 PM
As much as we love Elsie we're trying to get her to sleep in her own bed. The bed we have for her now is a little small so we're in the market for a new bed for her. I would love to hear some recommendations from you guys! Here's one we were looking at.......I think I'm just partial to the picture.

We have one of those beds too, among many many others :D, they're really good and very popular with the cats and dogs but wouldn't be for unsupervised use if you have a chewer!

Scout has this bed from LL Bean, it has her name on it and she's loves it. I've even put my head down on it with her and it's comfy.

Haha, honestly...I went to Ross (like a TJ Maxx or other kind of discount designer store) and got Fiona the comfiest one I could find for not too much money. For Fiona it really doesnt matter because when it really comes down to it, she's sharing my pillow every night!:D

There is also another good site to check out www.dogbedworks.com, a little on the more expensive side but there are two beds on the "specialty beds" page that are good for dogs that tend to eat their beds.

A crate makes a great dog bed! Just add some blankets and maybe a pillow and you'll have one happy dog.

Other wise, Ollie sleeps in the little foam bed we picked up at the $2 store, with a towel in it for warmth! He much prefers the beanbag, couch or my bed! :lol:

Mine have one from LL Bean like Scouty Girl, but my dogs have the rectangular shaped one.

Having had all sorts of beds now, I'd recommend looking for something either cheap and cheerful as they do wear out (especially if you are washing them), or go for something very well made like the Bean beds or Wallybeds (latter are quite expensive though). The most popular sleeping places here are not the expensive beds though. They really like a pillow I put in a wicker cat basket and a beanbag bed made by Emma at www.woofwoofcoats.co.uk. Or they'll go for the sofa. :)
