Bedding Materials


Regardless if you’ve got a Great Dane, a tiny Chihuahua or a furry Rag Doll, making sure that your pet has the best bed for their needs will ensure that they stay happy and healthy for years to come. By selecting a bed that can also be easily washed and moved around the house, you can be sure that your pet can have a bed that will last a life time – or at least until they try to bury it!

Which Pet Bed Is Best?

There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach that can be taken when selecting a pet bed, with some people wanting multiple beds for their pet in different locations around the home. With this in mind it is best to consider the size and needs of your pet, as well as the location of their new pet bed. For instance if you’re looking for a pet bed for inside then a cotton or fleece filled bed is ideal, yet a more rugged fabric such as hessian is best for pets who spend the majority of their time outside.  A range of raised pet beds, dog and cat houses as well as scratching platforms are also available, all of which are available from around $30 at pet and hardware stores.

How to Choose a Pet Bed?

After considering your pet’s size, needs and the location of their new bed, you can begin to shop for a specific style. Below is a list of the most common styles of pet beds that are currently available on the market:

  •     Cushion beds
  •     Orthopaedic beds
  •     Heated beds
  •     Cooling beds
  •     Igloos
  •     Raised beds
