What Size To Buy For A Large Breed Puppy

Puppies grow into full grown adult dogs within 18 to 24 months depending upon type of dog breed. Consider a dog bed that is large enough so your pup will grow into it when he/she becomes full grown rather than buying a small one now and buying another larger bed later.

If you are unsure how much your puppy will grow, check with your vet. They are very familiar with dogs and their growth patterns.

Will the Bed Fit in Your House or Apartment?

Determine where the bed will be placed. Take a sheet or blanket and place it on the floor where you wish to place the bed. This will give you an idea of how much space it will actually take in the room. If you have a piece of furniture that size, put the piece of furniture in the desired location of the bed. Is the bed too big for the space? If yes, then try another location or move the furniture around to fit.

What Shape Are Dog Beds?

Dog beds come in many shapes. Bed shape is important because not all dogs have the same sleeping pattern.  In addition, some shapes will fit better in your home.  Semi-circle and full circle shaped beds fit nicely in a corner.  Rectangular beds fit nicely along a long wall. Most large dog beds are rectangular.

What Is Your Dogs Sleeping Style?

Your dog’s sleeping style will determine the shape of bed to buy. Pets generally have two styles for sleeping:

  • Curled up into a semi-circle or
  • Stretched out

Curled Up Into a Semi-Circle

If your pet has this type of sleeping style, it should be easy to find a large bed for him/her. There are many selections, colors, styles and patterns available for circular or semi-circular or oblong beds. You may want to measure you dog while sleeping to ensure the bed will be deep and long enough.

Stretched Out

Dogs that stretch out need a long rectangular bed.  Check your dog several times while sleeping to see if one leg tends to stretch or curl to one side. Measure your dog while sleeping to see how long and wide the bed will need to be. Rectangular shaped beds are easier to size to your dog.

Is The Cover Easy To Clean? 

To easily keep the dog bed clean, it is important to consider the type of covering being used in the manufacture of the bed.

Most dog bed covers today are machine washable which makes it easy to clean. This allows you to remove the odors your pet may leave. Plan on washing the pet cover at least two to three times a month and always after an accident. Pets will not go on a bed that has an odor on it.

So, if you should observe your dog not sleeping on his/her bed, this is a sign to clean it.

When looking for covers on pet beds, read the description to determine if they are washable. Many manufactures now offer these types of covers. This will save you money in the long run.

Some beds today have on the outside of the dog bed waterproof lining which will help protect the bed from pet accidents. Look for some of these.

A lot of covers have zippers so they are easily removable to take off and to put back on after washing.

Will the bed look nice where it will be placed? Only you can determine if it does. Before deciding, take a cloth, blanket, sheet, or towel of the color of the bed you are considering to buy. Place it in the location where it will be sitting. Get an idea of how it looks. Move it around so you get the best appearance. If possible, try to make it into the actual size dog bed you need. determine if you have to move any furniture around to make room for it. Be sure it’s out of the way of heavy traffic. Your pet needs his/her place of retreat and quiet and an area that they can call their own.

Should Bed Be Orthopedic or Non-Orthopedic?

The main difference between orthopedic and non-orthopedic beds is their cost. Orthopedic beds cost more than non-orthopedic beds. Large dogs generally, as they age, tend to get sore muscles and aching joints.

Orthopedic beds are a dogs best friend as they help in providing them comfort and better health as they age. Orthopedic beds are highly recommended if your dog suffers from arthritis or has had some recent surgery.

Orthopedic beds will provide your pet with a better nights sleep which is good for his/her health. Any type of bed is better than having your dog sleep on the hard cold floor.

You can also buy some heated dog beds which will help your pet during the cold winter nights especially if your pet lives outdoors.

You don’t have to wait until your pet is aging to buy an orthopedic bed. These beds are great right from their puppy stage until their senior years. Remember, purchase a bed that they can grow into as they age so you don’t have to purchase another one.

Will It Be Moved Frequently?

Most large dog beds can be easily moved from one location to another. Just remember, that when you do, you need to move the bed and ensure that the new location is out of the way of heavy traffic. Your pet deserves his/her quiet place of retreat in the new location. You may also notice your pet having a little time to adjust to the new location.

Large Dog Bed

Large Dog Bed

Large dog beds now come in multiple colors and styles. Some styles have multiple patterns. This makes it possible for you to select a bed that will match or blend with your room’s decor.  If you want to make the luxury bed a focal point, go with something bold. Choosing a dog bed may not be as easy as it seems.

To get an idea of how different colors will blend with the rest of the room where the dog bed will be placed, why not look around the house for a sheet, towel or blanket close to the same color and place it in the location.

This will give you an idea of what it will look like. If you are the only one choosing the color and style, the decision will be much easier; however, if other family members are involved in the decision, it may take some negotiating and compromise from all involved.

Conclusion

Getting a bed for your pet should not be a hard task to complete. Your hardest task may be selecting the color, pattern, or style. Knowing your dog’s sleeping pattern will be very helpful in this decision. Also, whether to purchase a orthopedic or non-orthopedic bed. Your pocketbook may also play a role on which type bed you can afford.

By looking at the material in the bed and in some cases a warranty may even come with some of them, you should have a bed that will provide your pet with a good night’s sleep, and along with that better health. Don’t forget to purchase a bed that will be with your pet for life if he/she was a puppy they can grow into.

Having your pet sleep on any type of bed is definitely better for him/her then sleeping on the hard floor. Also, some dogs are chewers and many of them like to chew on their beds. You may need to buy a bed with tougher material until your pup grows into an adult and will not chew as much on their bed. Be prepared if your dog should be a chewer. Some dogs don’t chew and will be content when they lay down on the bed.
