  • When choosing a dog bed, consider your dog’s size and choose one that will fit him as an adult.
  • Consider a dog bed that fits in his crate to make his “home” more comfortable.
  • When testing the bed filling, it should be springy, not compacted, after repeated use.
  • Choose sturdy materials that can’t be ripped or consumed by your pet.
