How thick should a dog bed be?
Look for a bed that is at least 4 inches in thickness at a bare minimum and made from quality foam. The ideal thickness should probably be 6-7 inches so the foam doesn’t collapse under your dog’s weight.
How do you chew proof a dog bed?
Using Chew-Resistant Fabrics
Fleece, soft cotton, and other plush fabrics don’t hold up well between doggy teeth. You can make a cover for your dog’s bed or an entirely homemade bed by using durable fabrics that can better withstand chewing. Most of these dog bed fabrics are easy to clean.
What is the best filling for a dog bed?
Foam. Foam is inexpensive, durable and supportive of a pet’s weight. Memory foams work well for senior dogs that may have a touch of arthritis, because the foam cushions their joints and bones. Since foam resists flattening, the foam you purchase will hold it shape over time — the mark of a good bed filling.
Can a dog bed be too big?
Buying a bed that’s too large for your dog can leave him or her feeling insecure, so look for a bed that’s just large enough for your dog to stretch out. Smaller dogs are also much more likely to get chilly, so it’s important to find a bed that keeps drafts to a minimum.
How often should you change your dog’s bed?
Washing your dog’s bedding should be done every couple of weeks or so, even more often if your dog is dirtier than usual. Keeping up with washing both your dog and their bedding is important, and the two things should ideally be done together.
What size should a Labrador bed be?
Medium 24” – a good size for large breed puppies such as Labradors and medium sized dogs.

Dogs need to rest on a firm surface; too-soft pillow beds don’t offer the support needed for comfortable rest and healthy joints, and an older dog who sinks into a plush bed may have trouble getting into and out of it. This doesn’t mean he should sleep on the floor—that’s too firm.
Where should I put my dogs bed?
