Having a bed for your dog is vital, as sleeping on the floor can lead to hip pain and even arthritis. Typically beds for small dogs are in the 20” x 30” or 25” x 35” size range. There are a number of different types: cooling beds, orthopedic beds, outdoor beds, and beds designed to put in crates. Small dog beds range in thickness and fabrics, some are even filled with cedar chips. Most of these features are based on your dog’s preference. However, be sure to look out for a bed with a removable liner for ease of cleaning. Don’t forget, your dog’s bed should be replaced once a year, or as soon as the cushion goes flat.
