What is your hav's favorite bed?

I think we're far along enough with potty training that I'm comfortable giving Maestro a bed to sleep in during the day when I'm home. He's currently snoozing on the towel we use to wipe off his feet when we come in from outside. Let me know if your pup has a favorite bed ... only requirement is that it's 100% machine washable and dry-able.

For some reason, Ginny has destroyed every dog bed I've gotten her. She loves, however, these cute blankets that you can get at online pet stores (Posh puppy, I think). The brand is "Dream On" and they come in lots of cute colors and patterns.
Ginny and Griffin each have one in their crates, then I put 2 more in the x pen they share during the day. They both really like them. You may not have a bed-destroyer puppy, though, and should have lots of good options.

Kodi loves donut beds with an edge he can rest hos chin on. But he couldn't be trusted not to teR them apart occasionally until he was over 2. Until then, he just had crate pads or folded fleece blankets. He really likes the no-fray fleece that you cna get at fabric stores. It doesn't need binding, you cna cut it to any size you want, and it comes in lots of cute patterns. (Also washes and dries well).

Another good option is the microfiber covered, memory foam bath mats sold at BB&B. folded in half, these fit nicely in plastic crates, and are really cushy. Because they are backed with pebbly rubber, they are also a nice surface for a grooming station.

I'm fanatical about clean bedding for my animals so everything has to wash well... It's in the washer at least once a week.

Mine just appropriated the back of the couch for his bed. He alternates between there, my feet, and his crate.

Before I brought Leo home, I picked up 6 yards of no-fray fleece for $27.00. I cut it into several pieces for Leo's bedding. There's no stuffing to eat, it's washable, comfortable and cute (little paw print design). Someday when he's grown I probably get him a proper bed but for now this works great!

We use doggone smart beds. I think I got them from jefferspet or pet supplies.com. Zelda digs at them, drags them around, but can't damage them. The cover is washable and dryable but I usually just hang it from something for a day. She destroyed her other bed and many of her toys.

Snoozzy Beds. We have a couple. One in xpen and one in office. He loves them. I bought one similar to this at Petco:

I waited until Tim was a year old an bought him a really nice bed for his first birthday. He's not a chewer so I didn't have any reservations investing in a nice bed that I could take apart and wash, which I have and it has held up beautifully. He was using the cat's bed which worked out great when he was a puppy, they're cheap and I had a few that I would just throw in the washer but it was getting small for him. Here's a picture of his new bed it took a little getting used to but now he loves it.

He does do some digging when he gets in but hasn't caused any damage. I will say however that when I brought Tim home I made some tiny fleece blankets that he still likes to lay on now, they are kind of like little crate mats with no filling.

Emmie loves donut beds; she has one in the bedroom and one in the living room. And thankfully she's not a chewer so that's never been an issue for us. -Jeanne-
