A recent search for “large dog beds” on Amazon revealed 10,000 results. Over at Google the same search gives you over 6 million web pages. The bottom line? There are a lot of large dog beds to choose from. Are they all about the same? Should a big dog bed be made out of a particular type of material? What size should you get?
Those are all great questions. They illustrate that shopping for large dog beds should be given as much consideration as if you were buying a mattress for yourself. Keep the following tips in mind and your oversized dog bed purchase will be a success for both you and your pet pooch.
Consider an Orthopedic Dog Bed
