Thread: What kind of outside dog bed?

  1. #1

    Default What kind of outside dog bed?

    Hi,

    I am getting my puppy in two weeks! I initially will crate train and he will be in the laundry for longer absences. When he is old enough we will install a doggy door giving him acess to the laundry and his crate, but do you think i need an outside bed? I dont want a kennek outside as we get redbacks, so i need to be able to check for them easily in the morning before work. We also spray regularly.

    Thanks.

    It is nice for them to have a bed outside. Lots of dogs like snoozing outside, especially when they can lie in the sun when it's a bit cool. Do you have an undercover area out there? If you don't, I would recommend one of those canvas (?) beds on legs.

    Bonofido wet dry bed.

    I have 4 in the shed they sleep in if outside.
    It is a wet/dry one so any mud etc is just wiped off.
    The cushion cover can come off and both the cover and insert are machine washable.

    The cushion is also kept in place with clips. (actually velcro through a loop with a sturdy press stud ) and not one of my dogs has managed to rip it off and the beds were dragged around everywhere during the mouse plague and the dogs were hunting them.

    Not cheap but worth their cost.

    Forgot to add, they can snuggle down out of the cold well in this. Mine are on top of those ones Beloz mentions as the shed floor is dirt and can at times get wet in parts.

    As my dogs will lie in mud, holes they have dug, on the frosty lawn and out in the rain I like the easy clean, lol.

    My girl is outdoor mainly so she has plenty of outdoor options but her favorite is similar to this one Here
    they are water proof so very easy to keep clean and I use blankets for extra cushioning and just rotate them every few weeks for washing to prevent any flea problems.

    I just have a run of the mill tramp bed for her, nothing flash, I probably go through around 3 Hessian bags a year on it.
    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.

    Bella has a tramp bed that has a Hessian sack on it which are cheap to replace and then they have cheap sheets and blankets on the ground. They use to have a comfy mattress but they decided it would be fun to destroy... and every other bed I have brought for them as well So the cheep blankets are good cause they can destroy it as much as they like!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
