How To Choose A Washable Dog Bed Your Pup Will Love

How To Choose A Washable Dog Bed Your Pup Will Love

Dogs spend approximately twelve to fourteen hours of their days sleeping, so it stands to reason they need beds that are highly supportive yet comfortable for their well-being. The right washable dog bed needs to be inviting to your pup, while still being easy enough to clean and maintain.

When you’re picking between puppy beds for your sweet dog, it’s good to have a couple of considerations in mind. Easy maintenance, non-toxic materials, and a trial period should be at the top of your checklist when you’re choosing the right dog bed.

Dog beds tend to accumulate dirt, dust, and other external debris more easily than normal beds. Here’s how finding the best washable dog bed for your home can actually make things easier:

Why Are Washable Dog Beds Important?

Though it’s true that your pup isn’t picky about where they sleep, the right setup can offset pressure built in their muscles throughout the day and keep them cool.

Here are some of the ways washable dog beds can be of real value to your precious pup’s sleep routine:

Sleep positions

Even if your puppy looks comfortable falling asleep on the floor or at the foot of your bed, it’s possible they’re putting themselves through too much strain. The best washable dog beds can have a positive impact on your pup’s overall health. This is especially true in the case of older dogs since they’re more susceptible to arthritis and require joint support. Luxury dog beds are able to cater to these specific needs, and stay adaptable to any sleep position your puppy prefers.

Keeping Cozy

There’s nothing quite like coming back to your bedroom after a busy week to get cozy under your covers. Though dogs might not have business meetings or deadlines to meet, their bodies and brains undergo stress throughout the week nevertheless and giving them the gift of good sleep can be a joy.

Personal Hygiene

Do you struggle with allergies? Pet dander might be the root of your problems. Investing in a dog bed allows you to contain most of the pet fur in one place, making clean up and maintenance of your space a lot easier.


This is the same reason it’s important to invest in a washable dog bed since these are a lot simpler and more hygienic when it comes to maintenance.

How to choose the best washable dog bed for your pup

There are a couple of different factors you should take into consideration when trying to decide whether you’re picking the best dog bed for your home. Aside from it needing to be washable, you’re also going to want to think about your pup’s comfort, including why or how they might respond to different materials and fabrics.

To find the best dog bed for your pup, it’s important to make sure there’s a trial period so you can be sure they respond well to their new sleep setup.

Here’s everything you need to look out for:

1 - Sufficient Support

As your dogs grow older, it becomes more important to invest in a high-density memory foam that actively supports their joints. A more supportive dog bed helps offset the pressure after a long day of play.

Similar to the way human beings require support from their mattress, dogs also require pressure relief. Whether your puppy is still full of energy, or you have an older dog who prefers to stay snoozing, a supportive dog bed can have a transformative impact on the quality of sleep.

2 - Temperature Regulation

Another key feature of a comfortable dog bed is sufficient air circulation. If you’ve got a new dog bed that your puppy resists sleeping on, then it’s likely they feel their bed is too hot.

It’s instinctive for your pup to seek out naturally cool spots in your home, and if their new dog bed isn’t cooling enough, they’re going to try sleeping somewhere else. The best dog beds are made with cooling material and are breathable enough to keep your dog sleeping well through the night.

3 - Adaptable To Sleep Positions

For a dog bed to be truly comfortable, it needs to be the right size, as well as adaptable to your puppy’s different sleep schedules. Whether your dog’s a side sleeper, prefers to have their head resting on an elevated surface, or simply wants to burrow under several sheets and blankets, a dog bed that caters to multiple sleep positions will be a surefire hit with your dog.

Some dog beds come with a memory foam border, one that allows your dog to snuggle up in a corner without being impacted poorly.

4 - Simple to clean

Every dog owner knows that however well-trained, puppies can create a mess. That’s why it’s so important to invest in a washable dog bed. Removable covers are an added bonus since you’re going to be able to zip off and wash as often as you need to.

Looking out for high-quality materials will allow you to be assured your dog bed is going to last you a considerable amount of time without having to worry.

How To Keep Your Dog’s Bed Hygienic For Your Pet

It’s important to clean your dog bed regularly to keep things hygienic and clean. Washable dog beds are simple enough to clean, so making them part of your weekly routine is going to be easy when you get into the habit.

Here are some tips to make sure your dog bed is going to stay fresh for as long as possible:

  • Spot clean any stains between washes: Dirt and other fresh stains on your dog bed are best tackled immediately. If you spot clean any stains immediately, you prevent the risk of having stains set in the long term.
  • Vacuum the surface of your dog bed: External debris can get caught in the layers of your dog bed and be a health hazard to your dog. To keep your air clean, the occasional vacuum can help you prevent any excess risk. Use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum for the best results without risking damage.
  • Be sure to use a pet-friendly detergent: Most detergent materials have chemicals that are not safe to use for your four-legged friends. Using pet-friendly detergent will ensure they’re not breathing in harmful fumes while keeping your washable dog bed and other upholstery looking fresh and clean.
  • Use hot water when washing: Since you want to kill all the bacteria and germs present in your dog bed, it’s best that you wash it with hot water first. Before you clean your dog bed be sure to check any care instructions since you don’t want to accidentally damage the fabric.
  • Wash your dog on a regular basis: Whether it’s during walks outside or during play, your dog’s fur coat can trap and accumulate many different kinds of bacteria that they can transfer onto their bed. Some of these bacteria can be odour-causing, while others might be more harmful, which is why it’s important you also give your dogs baths on a regular basis to prevent any accumulation.
