What type of bed do dogs prefer? Do dogs prefer hard or soft beds? The ideal dog bed is a perfect blend of soft yet firm. Your dog’s individual needs will determine what dog is a perfect fit. For example, soft, memory foam beds are best for senior dogs with aging joints but harder beds may be better for adult dogs.
Do dogs like flat beds or beds with sides? Flat Bed: These are exactly how they sound flat and often in a rectangle just like a human mattress. These beds are great for dogs who like to sprawl and don’t like anything touching them while they sleep.
Should a dog bed be bigger than the dog? Most dogs like a bed to be large enough to have loads of room to manoeuvre, without being so giant that it ends up drafty. Remember that pups are pack animals and most love a snuggle, so if their bed is a little big, think about adding in a dog blanket or pillow to make it feel comfier!
