Covered dog beds are beds that have an enclosed design. This gives the dog a feeling of safety with a resting area that’s enclosed like a cave or animal den. The base of the covered bed consists of a soft pad, allowing the dog to sleep or rest comfortably. The sides and top of the bed also usually consists of a soft material like fleece. Some dogs won’t like the idea of a covered bed. They won’t want to crawl inside the enclosure. However, other dogs appreciate the snug feeling of the enclosed bed. When they need a quiet place to rest, the covered dog bed allows them to hide comfortably.
