There is nothing quite relaxing as being comfortable and relaxing in our homes and looking over at our dogs sleeping comfortably.
As responsible dog parents, we want our pets to be comfortable, warm and protected. Not all dogs are the same, and not all dog beds are the same. Our dogs prefer different sleeping positions. My Irish Setter loves to sleep curled up in a ball snug as a bug. My Lhasa Apso will pass out and then literally sleep on her back with all fours in the air. The method by which they will fall asleep is also completely different. The larger dog climbs in the bed and spins before laying down. The smaller dog must "dig" or "burrow" for a good ten minutes before she will finally settle. Of course, when we watch her and giggle, she stops and looks at us as if to say, I am not doing this for your entertainment!
Here are a few pointers to help you choose the best dog bed:
Understand how your pup likes to sleep. Observe your dog's sleep style and note whether the dog sleeps in a ball, back, or the tummy. Depending on the sleep style, it will help you choose the right bed for your dog: a calming dog bed, an orthopedic dog bed, an elevated sofa style bed, or a nesting dog bed.
If you have a dog that likes to burrow, we bet you have wondered why. Admittedly, it is quite humorous to watch, that is for sure! There seems to be no exact reason why our pets like to burrow and dig. There are a few things that might explain this behavior, though. A few breeds burrow because it is instinctual behavior, which means they are born with this habit ingrained. They love to burrow treasures they find and even themselves. Terriers and Dachshunds are known to flush out small creatures from underground tunnels by burrowing.
Huskies and other large breed dogs are known to burrow under the snow in the extreme cold to stay warm. Burrow beds are great for Hounds, Terriers, and Sighthounds. Any other breed of dog that enjoys burrowing will also benefit from a burrow bed. Like humans, your dog will burrow to find comfort and warmth and to relieve stress. Burrow style is one the very best dog beds for large dogs.

The older dog needs a different kind of bed. If you notice that your older dog is having a more challenging time moving in the morning or tossing and turning at night, it may be wise to purchase an orthopedic dog bed. These types of mattresses provide added comfort and support. As our dogs age, they can suffer from conditions like arthritis and hip dysplasia.
Orthopedic and memory foam dog beds: is there a difference?
One of the biggest questions when looking to purchase a dog bed is the difference between an orthopedic and memory foam bed. Here is an explanation of the two. And some examples of high-quality products.
The orthopedic dog bed is specifically designed to support the bones, joints, and pet's body. The orthopedic dog bed provides safety, comfort and helps to relieve pain. These dog beds stimulate proper joint and bone alignment. Be advised; an orthopedic dog bed can be made using memory foam. Memory foam adjusts to the shape of your dogs' body and offers comfortable support. Memory foam also provides security because it hugs the body closely. Memory foam is also exceptionally durable. Orthopedic dog beds filled with fiber or small particles of just any material do not offer the same comfort and pain relief. Our recommendation? Take a look at one of our best selling product PAIKKA ORTHOPEDIC BED for recovery.
We absolutely recommend this orthopedic dog bed to all, but especially very active, cold sensitive or senior dogs will benefit from it the most.
Memory Foam Dog Bed
There are memory foam dog beds that are not considered orthopedic but are very well made and durable. If your pup is ordinarily healthy and active, the regular memory foam bed is a great option. These beds offer safety and comfort to the dog.
Fall in love with the wonderful design of PENDLETON ACADIA PET NAPPER and give your pup the comfort of a high-quality memory foam dog bed.
Travelling with your dog?
Our dogs are part of the family, and we want to bring them with us wherever we go. Having a dog bed that ravels and cleans easily is a must-have. The outdoor pet bed makes it possible to bring our pups camping and to other outdoor events. Cleaning is super easy with a hose or by throwing the bed in the washing machine.
Choosing the perfect dog bed for your pup may take a bit of research, but it is well worth it. Choosing a bed that offers security and comfort is essential. As pet parents, we want the best for our pups and stop at nothing to make sure they are loved and comfortable.
Last but not least, don't forget to shop for a warm and soft dog blanket as veterinarians advise dog owners to provide extra warmth and comfort with pet blankets. Especially smaller dogs, regardless of coat thickness, will have a harder time keeping themselves warm. Discover our full collection of dog blankets and throws on Wunderpets & Co.
