Dog beds can be simple or fancy, expensive or homemade, and everything in between.
How do you pick the right dog bed for your pup when there are so many on the market? Does your pooch even need a dog bed? Should you spend a lot of money when your dog is just as happy lying with you in your human bed or on the couch?
These are all questions you should consider before you buy a dog bed, and this dog bed guide is here to help you make a decision.
Does Your Dog Need A Dog Bed?
Even if your dog is allowed to sleep with you in your human bed, every dog should have a bed of their own — or two or three or four, actually.
There are plenty of benefits to having dog beds. They can be used for napping during the day and sleeping in at night.
Unlike the floor, a bed will keep your dog warm, support arthritic joints, and prevent calluses. And unlike a couch or human bed, dog beds, or pet bed, are spaces that pups can have all to themselves.
