Each month in our quest to find out what's new, we ask our colleagues and friends to share their favourite dog products, but this month we decided to try something different - we wanted to find out what was most important to our friends and colleagues when buying a dog bed.
Every home has at least one (mine has nine, which seems excessive, I grant you) but every dog is different, so we wanted to know what's most important when it comes to choosing a dog bed.
With what we discovered, here are some of the best dog beds we've found to help you buy a dog bed that your dog (and you) will love.
There's something for everyone, so read on.
Scruffs® Insect Shield® Dog Mattress
Why we love:The technology effectively protects your dog against mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, flies and ants.
Scruffs® Insect Shield® bedding is treated with proven Insect Shield® technology and effectively protects your dog against: Mosquitoes, Fleas, Ticks, Flies & Ants.
The dog Mattress is constructed using light-weight fabrics, particularly suited for use during summer months.
Available in two sizes, with a removable cover and is machine washable.
Why we love:This classic country inspired bed proved to be a hit with our review dogs.
When we were first offered the chance to review one of the country inspired box beds, Mia came to mind for the review. What I didn't expect is that when it arrived, she'd have competition in the shape of Chris.
It's quite rare to find a bed that fits dogs at different ends of the age spectrum so well, Chris being a young dog, and Mia being 12, their needs are very different but both are being well met.
Price wise, this bed ranges from a little under £60 to a little over £100, depending on the size you need.
For the quality, features and customisation of the pillow cushioning, it's very good value and well priced for the market compared to similar beds.
