When choosing the right luxury dog bed for your canine friend, there are a few essential things you need to carefully consider.
The best bed to suit your dog’s needs will depend on several factors, from the size and age of the dog through to their individual sleeping preferences and personalities. It’s not just your dog’s preferences, either – there are also some practical elements to consider too, such as how long-lasting it is? How easy is it to clean? Can it be transported easily? And, even how does it fit in and compliment your home?
Here’s our guide to making sure that your investment in a new luxury dog bed perfectly suits your dog’s needs while also being entirely practical for your lifestyle.
Choosing the size of your dog bed
Whether your dog is a Chihuahua or a Great Dane, you’ll want to ensure they are getting adequate support and comfort in their bed. To do this, you need to ensure that they have enough space to curl-up and snuggle but also to stretch out and sprawl if they want to. That’s why we offer up to 4 sizes of beds and even bespoke sizing on Ivy & Duke beds, so you can be assured you’re getting the exact size your dog needs. We’ve also created a range of seven different, thoughtful designs that accommodate multiple sleeping positions and preferences.
Please note: The Lounger Extra large is a very large bed – suitable for a giant size breed or 2 large dogs
Whether your dog is a growing pup or an older and arthritic dog, you need to make sure that their bones, joints and muscles are getting all the orthopaedic support they need while they rest and sleep. We make all our dog beds with luxurious, memory foam to ensure that your dog continually gets the benefits and the support it needs, whatever their age. Our beds are also made with premium upholstery-grade fabrics (or waterproof fabrics), contain thick, hand-blown fibre bolsters for the ultimate comfort your dog needs, and are individually handcrafted to ensure no rough edges or zips are sticking out to irritate your dog as they rest.
Warmth and safety
Having a warm retreat is essential for a dog, particularly if they are of a shy or nervous disposition. All of our beds come with a base mattress, made from superior quality memory foam, and our fabrics are chosen for the right thickness to ensure warmth even in the cold winter months. If your dog likes to curl up and get away from it all, the Ivy & Duke Den Bed offers high-sides and, like all our beds, has generously filled hollow fibre bolsters for a perfect cosy sanctuary for your do.
