A place to sleep, a place to dream
The dog beds available here at zooplus offer your dog stylish comfort at an affordable price. From hypoallergenic materials to memory foam mattresses and lots of other options in between, you'll be sure to find the perfect bed to meet your dog's needs. A comfortable bed is essential in your dog getting a good night's sleep, for dogs as well as humans. We offer an extensive selection of beds and dens that provide comfort at the end of a long day or for a quick midday nap. There are beds in so many different shapes, colours and styles, it is little wonder that dog owners lose track! Here we answer the most important questions about dog beds, helping you find the best option for your dog's sleep and comfort.
Which bed is right for my dog?
Your dog's bed should not only be stylish and attractive, but should also meet your dog's health requirements. We offer special orthopaedic beds for older or unwell dogs, as well as beds that are ideal for dogs with joint issues. These beds use technology employed in human medicine, with high-tech material such as memory foam to support the spine and relieve pressure. Another option for dogs with spinal or joint issues is a sprung mattress. Above all other things, a dog bed needs to be robust and the right size. If the bed is too big, your dog will not feel cosy. It can be particularly tricky when shopping for a puppy bed, as you want it to keep your dog warm enough whilst also allowing for the fast growth rate of young dogs. We also offer outdoor beds, which tend to be made from waterproof material and are particularly robust, protecting your dog from cold floors and being ideal for outside snoozes.
How big should my dog's bed be?
The right dog bed plays a huge role in your dog's ability to relax. It is important that your dog can easily sleep in its bed without any problems, so it needs to be big enough with a large enough sleeping area. To find an approximate size of bed for your dog, measure from the tip of the nose to the base of the tail, then add around 10cm.
How should I set up my dog's bed?
Where you place your dog's bed also plays a key role. If you will be placing your dog's bed in a corner, it naturally makes more sense to choose a square or rectangular bed than a round or oval bed. It also goes without saying that you should not place the bed in the way of any draughts. You need to find a balance between the bed not being in the way but also not closed off from the rest of the household. It essentially comes down to finding somewhere that your dog can relax but still feel like part of the family!
