Yes! They can be totally ridiculous.

A plus to having a smaller dog, I've found some great deals at Walgreens and CVS. I've gotten the cutest beds for $9.99 and cheaper. They have these little donut circular beds that are the exact same quality as the beds at Petsmart, for example, which can sell for sometimes $25-$30. These from CVS are like $8. And the quality is great and has held up for almost a year now.

Agreed. lol

Tractor Supply has cedar-filled plain rectangular ones for $10. They fit my crates to a t, and they make Daisy smell better... lol

I know!

Now we just go to an op shop and buy old good doonas. You can get a good one for about $15 and when folded up it makes a great bed, plus they are easy to clean.

Buster does has one that I got for $45, it was such a bargain, it soft and thick with a removable cover and its lasted.

costco usually has pretty nice ones for a decent price. we have a big one from there and a smaller (slightly more expensive) one from walmart.

i was eyeballing one at that pet place the other weekend that was lovely and soft and cushy and over $100. um, yeah no.

Jeffers seems to have the best prices but I inherited a couple of the thick ortho beds from my mom after her Rottie passed away. The cats keep trying to claim one of them but Riley is fighting them off...

I wish I had a small dog now! Lol, they're so cheap compared to the big ones.

I've glanced at those in TSC, but they seem like they wouldn't hold up very well?

I should look at Sams (southern costco, lol). They usually have a few.

Yeah, I'm looking at memory foam ones and the ortho bed. They seem to be the ones that aren't just small flaky little cushions that aren't worth the $45. I figure if I'm going to spend about $50 anyways why not spend another $30 or so and get one that will last.

The last dog bed we got was at dog.com when they had that 80% to 90% off all dog beds. It was great! I got a decent bed for about $10. Then a crate pad for about $6. I LIKE those prices.
