The best dog beds that are practical and stylish

The pet industry is booming and you can buy an enormous variety of accessories for your furry friends. Most pets spend a lot of time in the home and their beds will most likely sit on the floor in the living room or kitchen. They can take up quite a bit of space too. We choose our own furniture and accessories to match, so why not get a dog bed that blends in with your decor too? Here is my selection of gorgeous dog beds from makers and sellers on Etsy.

Why does your dog need a dog bed?

Does your pup 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 sofa? The answer is: yes. Even if you love having your dog sleeping with you in your human bed, every dog should also have a bed of their own, to snuggle up in during the day for a nap and as his own little safe space.

Health, hygiene and a place of safety

Unlike the floor, a bed will keep your dog cosy and will support arthritic joints and prevent calluses. Dog beds are usually washable, which is useful if your dog has accidents, has fleas or mites, or has walked in covered in dirt! Dog beds are also useful when traveling. Some dogs can get a bit anxious on a journey and it often calms them down to sleep in a familiar bed. They’ll rest easier and feel less anxiety.

This dog bed cover is handmade in the US from a heavy weight material (soft, yet sturdy). Envelope closure on the bottom (no zippers or buttons to destroy!) The bed can be personalised with the dog’s name. The cover comes in several sizes ranging from XS to XL, and is priced at £27.87 / 36.47USD / €30.78 + shipping

Select a dog bed that suits your pet, your style and your budget

Dog beds are available in any style, shape, fabric and size. From fluffy and velvet cushions to sleek, minimalist dog beds. There are cheap ones and expensive one, and many people make a pet bed themselves. Choosing the right bed depends on your taste, budget, and decor, Of course, dogs being dogs, they may decide not to sleep in it at all, so there never a guarantee…! If you know where your dog feels most comfortable to rest, you may find it easier to pick the right dog bed. Also, make sure the bed is big enough for your dog to sleep in comfortably, without his legs spilling out over the edge.
