Choosing a Bed - Recommendations?
I saw Lina's Orvis fleece bed in another thread and I'm thinking about ordering that one, but wondered if there were alternate suggestions I should consider. I'm not even bringing puppy home until May, but I'm already shopping and trying to make smart choices.
I'm assuming I'll be starting with a crate and a fluffy mat inside, but I'm not sure for how long - I kind of prefer a regular dog bed for her unless she really likes the crate.
I don't like any of the ones I've seen in pet stores, and I want a good cushion on it that doesn't have lumpy, cheap filling. I guess dogs like the bolstered style for snuggling, but I think I want one that is large enough for her to grow into and be able to stretch out in, rather than only fitting her if she is sort of curled into it.
Lina, if you are reading this, do you think the small or medium fleece orvis bed is the right size for a Hav I expect to get around 13lb, if I want her to be able to stretch out in it? Do you like the "mattress" in it? Is it my imagination, or do they like to sleep stretched out sometimes?
I guess I'm trying to avoid buying 6 different beds to narrow down the right one. I don't mind spending a little more for a "keeper."
