When I brought home my dog as a puppy, it was very important for me to buy her something that she could lay on in the house so that I knew that she would always be very comfortable. I started looking for a good dog bed after she slept in my bed the first day that she was home. I wanted to find a bed that she could have from when she was little to when she was an adult dog.
I looked at a lot of different beds that my dog would be able to enjoy and eventually found one that was a good size. Now that my dog is full grown she still loves this bed even though it is a little smaller than I thought it would be for her. I have gotten her a larger bed, but she far prefers to sleep in the plaid dog bed that I purchased for her when she was a puppy.
