Why your dog needs a place to call his/her own + a list of the top dog beds that will ensure your baby the best sleep yet.
To say my dog loves his bed is an understatement. Every time I am working from home, watching TV, cooking dinner, etc., I find my dog, Scooby, sleeping in his little furry sanctuary. This is true for most dogs. Dogs need their beds to have a place of their own. The beds are almost like tiny homes that they can go to when they feel uneasy, nervous, and tired. As you think about your home and all the safety and comfort it provides, that is precisely how our babies feel when they plop down onto their little beds.
Did you know dogs sleep for 12-18 hours a day on average? Sleeping on the floor for that amount of time provides no support for their bodies and can make them feel alone. Dogs need a place to call their own. Regardless of your dog likes to lay by your side, you need to have a dog bed for him/her. They love sleeping and cuddling with you, but when you leave the house, are busy, and can’t be with them, they usually head straight to bed. If not, they will be waiting on the floor, uncomfortable and all alone until your return.
Dogs tend to develop joint problems as they age. By sleeping on a bed, they minimize the chances of developing those problems and getting the comfort and support they need if they already have issues.
All dogs come in different shapes, sizes, and problems. Their beds cannot be one size fits all. That is why I have assorted a great list of recommended dog beds that will ensure your pooch has their own little haven and excellent sleep every time they shut their heavenly eyes.

A Note From the Editor:
Your dog deserves the best treatment. They are the ones who give you unconditional love from the start. Now it’s time to return the favor! Scooby loves his Bowser Faux Fur Bed. He is a 20lb short-haired dachshund who enjoys burrowing. Does your dog love to burrow? Or does your dog have his/her own specific needs? It is time to observe how your baby likes to sleep and treat him/her to a night of even better sleep.
Love, Scooby and Scooby’s Momma
