Why Your Dog Needs a Dog Bed

There is nothing like a soft, comfortable, cozy bed to help you get a good night's sleep, right? Well your dog probably feels the same way. And, if you are trying to keep your dog from taking over your expensive new couch, your favorite chair or hogging your bed, a nice, soft comfortable dog bed is what he or she needs.

Dogs need to have a place of their own, a place they can retreat to and feel safe and unbothered. And a dog bed is important for health reasons, too, especially for large dogs, which can develop callouses or sores over bony areas like elbows from sleeping or laying on hard surfaces.

Whether you want a designer dog bed for your pampered pooch, a sturdy iron dog bed or you're looking in general for dog beds - quilted fabric or plush or sheepskin, you can find a great selection of comfy beds for your dog & save up to 40% off at PETCO.com.

There are other beds that look more like mattresses. Typically rectangular, oval-shaped, these beds are usually made from a durable fabric that can easily be wiped down, like nylon. These beds are often filled with poly-fil; others have inner springs like "people beds," and still others are filled with foam; these are particularly good for older, arthritic dogs because they provide a lot of support as well. Other popular styles are "nests" or "cuddlers," with a foam, fabric-covered base and raised sides. They typically have an inner liner, or bed, made of lambswool (real or imitation). They come in a variety of shapes, such as oval, round and rectangular.

There are also special orthopedic beds for older dogs to help relieve joint pain, others filled with special odor-eating material to keep the bed smelling fresh.
