How to Choose the Right Size Bed for Your Dog

Our Dog Beds Are Dreamy

You have lots of options when searching for the perfect bed for your dog. There are so many shapes and sizes available that it’s no wonder the process can make you tired. Here are some helpful tips to help you choose the right bed for your canine companion. Below are two question to ask yourself.

  1. Does your lifestyle require you to take your dog's bed along with you to the office, camping, road trips? Then a lightweight, easy to wash, crate-friendly mat will be your best bet. Check out our Big Sky Nap®.This one-piece dog mat comes in a variety of standard sizes, and in a beautiful, super soft and cozy fabric with an eco-friendly padding hand-sewn inside.

  2. Are you looking for a cozy bed for your pup to rest in your home? Then our Heyday Bed® is perfect. With pillowy, low-profile bolsters, this bed is easy to get in and out of (perfect for puppies and older dogs) but provides a padded center to keep them up off the floor.

    Size Your Dog Up

    Before you decide on a bed, observe your dog’s sleeping habits. Do they like to curl up in a ball or sprawl out? Do they always tuck themselves in a corner, or do they lay down in the middle of the room? Do they look for the most comfortable cushion they can find, or does your dog flop down anywhere, including the hardwood floor? If your dog likes to stretch out, you may want to consider buying one size larger bed than what is suggested.

    West Paw offers beds for any personality sleeper, from quality mats to lofty and luxurious pillowy beds. For miniature toy breeds, small dogs, and puppies, our smallest beds, the Big Sky Nap, measures approximately 19”x14” and is available in home decor friendly colors. For large dogs, multiple dogs, or dogs that just love having room to spread out, look at our Extra Large (XL) size in both the Big Sky Nap or the Heyday Bed. Whatever your size dog, we’ve got you covered!
