Large dogs deserve a bed that’s just as comfortable as your smaller dogs’. If you’ve been using a crib mattress as a dog bed for your big pooch, check out our list! We’ve done the research and reviewed a ton of dog beds in order to bring you a selection of the best ones for large dogs. But first, let’s take a look at some things you should know before you start shopping.
Dog Size: This will tell you, in pounds, the size recommended by the manufacturer. It’s a good idea to go with a bed that has a slightly higher pound limit than your dog is at right now, that way they stay comfortable.
Dimensions: How big is the bed? These are the exact dimensions of the bed. This will help you decide where you’re going to put it in your home, as well as if your dog will fit comfortably on it.
Color: The color of the bed can, of course, be changed. Some of these beds have different color options you can choose at checkout, so if this isn’t your style there are other options. You can replace the cover, too!
Washable Cover: Is the cover that comes with the bed washable? We’ll let you know if the cover can be removed and thrown in the washing machine. This is useful for larger beds that obviously won’t fit in the machine.
Memory Foam: Memory foam holds the shape of your dog to cradle them and make them feel more comfortable when they’re resting. Memory foam is a great choice for older dogs or dogs with joint issues to stay comfortable.
Water Resistant: Is the cover resistant to water? This is important for your pups because they often come in with muddy paws or get wet while running around outside. This way, water can’t soak through to the core of the bed.
