Frequently Asked Questions About Large Dog Beds
Which dogs need a large dog bed?
Your dog does need a large dog bed if he is a medium to larger size breed. Your dog’s bed should be large enough that he can comfortably lay or curl up inside it. If your dog likes to sprawl out, you may want to size up when choosing a dog bed. If he likes to curl up or you are using a bolstered bed, don’t choose one that’s too large, or your dog won’t get the support these beds provide. Dog bed sizes vary by manufacturer, so be sure to read the sizing recommendations and check dog bed dimensions before you buy.
What types of breeds need a large dog bed?
The types of breeds that need a large dog bed include most breeds over 25-30 pounds, but dog bed sizes vary widely, so always check manufacturer sizing recommendations. Breeds like English Bulldog, Pit Bull, Border Collie, Australian Shepherd, Labrador Retriever and similarly sized dogs usually require a large or extra-large size dog bed. Golden Retriever, Standard Poodle, Boxer, German Shepherd, Dalmatian and other larger breeds will need large or extra-large sized dog beds, as well.
How do you clean a large dog bed?
Clean a large dog bed according to the manufacturer’s care instructions. Many large dog beds have removable covers that you can machine wash, and some are even designed to be tossed directly into the washer without removing the cover. Others may only allow for spot cleaning because of the fabric, size or construction. Read and follow washing instructions closely and consider them before you buy a dog bed.
