Even if your dog is allowed to sleep with you in your bed, every dog should have a bed of their own–or two or three or four, actually. A dog bed isn’t just for sleeping, it's also a safe space for lounging and toy-chewing when they're in the living room or kitchen area. All dogs could benefit from having a place where they can feel calm and de-stress during the day or night. Large floor pillows are best as they give your dog plenty of space to spread out. There is no downside to buying a pilow that’s a little big, especially if your dog is still growing or if you have multiple dogs in the house. Measure your dog from the snout to the base of the tail. You should choose a bed that’s at least this long.
