[VIDEO] The Search For The Perfect Dog Bed

Earlier this week I considered the merits of getting Eko a new dog bed.  After a couple more nights of fitful sleep for Eko that consideration has now become a certainty. Check out this quick video to see how this new mission was kicked off. (Hint: It has to do with Eko nearly kicking me off my own bed!)



Thanks to everyone who was kind enough to share a dog bed recommendation.  I will follow up on all leads and hopefully get Eko in a comfy and supportive new bed asap.  If anyone else has a recommendation please let me know.  Thanks!

  1. Your video’s are always so entertaining. I laughed out loud at the out-of-the-bed shots. Poor Eko, I’m not sleeping well these days either. But unlike Eko, I drag my butt some evenings. Maybe a nap on the sofa with my feet in the air is the solution, Eko sure looks comfy. Good luck finding the perfect solution. What I did for our cats is sew two regular bed pillows together (you might need 4 for Eko) then put a giant cover on them, then put that inside a cover that can be removed for laundering. It’s probably 8″ thick and they love it. The pillows were only $4 at Walmart and way better than the cheap filler they use in pet beds. Here’s a post I did about making it.


  2. Bark magazine has top 12 dog beds. I think k9ballistics.com sounds like a good match for you. Memory foam and chew proof-guaranteed. From $65.

      • My 90 lb dog sleeps on my futon (it’s HIS bed, he’s not allowed on the couch), but he does rest his head occasionally on his memory foam dog bed. I can’t offer a personal referral. We have a memory foam bed from Marshalls, so it’s not the one I suggested. It is quite comfortable. I think I use it more than him. =) I do leave it for him if I board him. Good luck! I enjoy reading about you, Emily and Eko. I’m three years into my first dog, I’d love helpful ideas on training. I’m taking a dog training class, but it seems to me like training might be lifelong.

      • Thanks for the recommendation about the memory foam. And you said it, training is certainly a life long process. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun!

  3. Sam my lab just got a oval bed from pet smart. The brand is kong and she has no complaints as she has slept in it for about 6mths. It is very durable and can be vaccumed.
    Good luck with the search Sammy and Lacey

  4. What do our dogs really like ? Almost all my dogs slept with there head off the beds. They all at times did the spin around dance as I call it, helped make up there bed to.
    What I.did, was got a memory foam mattress topper from Sam’s Club, cut it to.fit.the dog bed and double it up, I think.and hope Buddy likes it, but at night he does sleep in bed with me and I.have one on top of my bed.
