Best Beds for Dogs with Anxiety

Best Beds for Dogs with Anxiety

When selecting a bed for a dog with anxiety, it is important to consider the size and material of the bed. Choosing the appropriate size, neither too small nor too big, and a cozy material like faux fur or microfiber can make them feel more secure and comfortable.

Anxiety in dogs can make it difficult for them to sleep and stay calm, but the plush and cushioned surface of an orthopedic bed can provide a supportive and comfortable place for them to rest. The cushioned surface can also help to reduce stress on joints and muscles, leading to more restful and restorative sleep.

Orthopedic Dog Beds, designed with a thick layer of memory foam, can offer a wealth of benefits for dogs suffering from joint pain, arthritis and anxiety. The conforming memory foam adapts to the shape of the dog's body, providing pressure relief and reducing pain, while also offering a sense of security and cocoon-like feeling that can be soothing for anxious dogs.

Burrow Dog Beds, provide a cozy bed where your dog can easily tuck itself in and feel completely cocooned relieving anxiety.  They have an opening that allows access to burrow right under the "blanket" to snuggle down for the night.

Marshmallow Beds, are overstuffed fluffy dog beds often in a large circle shape. Your dog literally sinks into it as the fluff embraces them and relieves anxiety. The deep padding ensures protection for tired legs and joints and your dog will sleep like a baby.

Bolstered Edge Beds, provide a raised, padded edge accommodating your dog's sleeping style. Most dogs use it as a pillow. Older dogs might find the bolsters difficult to get past when climbing into bed. 

Cooling Beds, have a gel foam that keeps your dog cool. Some have charcoal-infused foam that absorbs odors. Most have washable covers. 

Chew Resistant Beds, for dogs with separation anxiety. They are chew, dig, scratch and water resistant. They typically have non-skid bottoms and they are not plush which typically get gnawed on by chewers. 

You might have to try a bed or two before finding your pup's favorite. They will help you discover which one provides them with comfort, support, and a sense of security, allowing them to have a good night's sleep and reduce their anxiety.
