I never know what kind of dog bed to buy for my dogs. There are so many choices, all the beds look a little different, but they're too expensive to just wing it. The folks over at FetchDog have a guide that will help you. I'm not affiliated with FetchDog, I just love that someone has finally explained which dog would like which bed!
Here's an excerpt from their webpage on dog beds:
CHOOSING A DOG BED
Like humans, every dog has their own sleep preference. Whether your dog is a curler, a leaner, a burrower or a sprawler, FetchDog has the right dog bed for your dog in styles that fit your home's decor.
Before you order, make sure to measure your dog from tip to tail. If in doubt, always round up in size to ensure maximum comfort.
Which dog bed is right for your dog?
FetchDog makes it easy to choose the best bed for your dog.
Most dogs fall into one of the following categories:
Curlers like to be securely enclosed by their bed and prefer donut dog beds.
Leaners prefer the support of a back bolster dog bed, or a dog couch.
Sprawlers stretch out in all directions. Dog pillows and large dog pads offer up plenty of room.
Burrowers dig in and like a cover over their head, making nesting dog beds a great choice.
