The 15 best and most comfortable dog beds today

What Makes a Good Dog Bed?

Kiki came into my life 2 months ago and from the first time I set my eyes on her, she made me glow. She was adorable, furry and very jumpy. After my surgery, my doctor had recommended bed rest for 2 months for my ligament to heal. Ken my husband was always at work to provide for us as I had stopped going to work. It felt lonely staying at home the whole day without company. I needed a companion and one night I suggested to Ken to get me a puppy. That is how Kiki landed into our humble home. Life changed for me after her arrival, she would wake me up with whispers in my ears or jump on my bed. During the day she would snuggle around my legs or on the sofa as we watched TV.
With time she was used to staying with us on the bed and sofa and we thought it was time for her to get her own bed and space so we started shopping around. We wanted her to appreciate a place of her own, her bed, her space and sanctuary and allow us to have our sofa space again. You don’t have to be barking to want a stylish place for your pet to rest; pamper your pooch with our choice of the best dog beds around.

With a dog we had to think of issues to do with:

Fleas- as much as we loved our dog we knew it would be okay if she had her own bed as we did not want fleas in our bed. The dog was in and out of the house and sometimes accompanied me for a short walk around the neighbourhood.
Boss- also been in the same house it was time for the dog to know who the boss was, so it needed to know its’ place.
Disturbing your sleep- your dog might take most of your bed space and leave you to squeeze all night long. For this reason, your dog needs his/her own sleeping place to rest.
People have preferred bed for their dogs but the one Kiki loves best is Fur Paws Faux pet sofa and after much testing by far, our favourite. Some dogs are just mischievous in nature and can be bed eaters and although these beds are tough, no soft dog beds will stand a vicious chewer.
Consider these especially if your dog breed is a bed eater you can invest in a cheap bed for a start instead of a luxury bed which will be eaten up. We have beds for small, big and special conditioned dogs and several varieties to suit your wallet. Some are cheap and affordable, others luxurious and need a bit of investment for your dog comfy life.
Your dog will appreciate a place to call their own where it can snuggle up and sleep or just get away to make some noise.

When choosing a bed you need to consider various aspects.

    • Water proof dog beds

You do not want a bed that takes longer to dry as your dog will move back to your sofa or your bed again. Get a waterproof dog bed which will be easy to clean with a quick wipe.

    • Fancy dog beds.

Everyone loves fancy bed even our pets. For the ultimate poach pampering, a luxury dog deserves a luxury bed.

    • Elevated dog beds

Dogs with joint pains or who do not like cold floors this will be the ideal bed. It will keep your dog comfortable and warm.

    • Size matters

According to the size of your dog ensure the bed is a good fit, not too small and not too big, it should be the right size.

    • Inexpensive beds

As we were shopping around for the dog bed we came across some cheap ones, but sometimes cheap is expensive. They were beds of E2, 5 and 10 problem was the supplier would over promise and under deliver. Some oversea suppliers fail to deliver. Other pet owners are a victim of this but others were able to get their beds. You can try this if you want.

    • Flimsy and thin

Dogs are very playful and the dog tests the bed for destruction. If it does not stand the test of time and as a pet owner, I would want a long lasting bed which is not easily destroyed.

    • Wrong sizes

Manufacturers might not make them according to the sizes indicated. The bed might be shipped from an overseas seller and not be helpful for your medium sized dog but may be big enough for a hamster.
The cute beds always get to us.
Take the one that looks like a strawberry cute. It is a very popular dog bed the only issue is you will be extremely lucky if it is big enough for 2 guinea pigs.

It is made of thick nylon fabric and is zipped up on the roof which can be removed. It is made of cordura which does not leak and is abrasion resistant making your dog comfortable. Size 3 is a good size for many dogs such as staffies however it is advisable to go for a larger one because with time your dog is growing and you do not want your dog to struggle to get in.
