Default Dog Beds?

I want to get a nice doggy bed for Oakley so he can have his place during the day (he will never go in his crate...only at night)

what kind of dog bed is best? And how do you determine what size to get?

i know those seem like kinda dumb questions, lol, but i was looking, and i have like NO concept of size, even when oakley was standing by the beds...(in petco)

He always lays on his side, but in his crate, cant do that...so think i would be better off getting the one with walls or just a flat one (he has one like that in his crate...)

also...should i make sure it has that cedar stuff, or is that not that important?

and...last thing...he managed to rip holes in his other...is there a better material i should look for, or ones i should stay away from?

Thanks!

my dogs never lay on their dog pillows..nice and fluffy, and even sowed them new fabric...they prefer the floor.id love to buy a nice fancy one, but it would be only for decoration, cus they wouldnt lay on it

ahahah

do your dogs sleep in a crate at night? cuz oakley has a doggie pillow in there, and seems to love it...well, despite the fact that when i take it out, he would rather attempt to rip it to shreds before laying in it..and succeeded on more than one occasion, so now its missing some fluff, and is all lumpy...but sheesh, if he wants a nice bed, he cant keep ripping it! those things are expensive!

but yeah, when i put it in the kitchen, he usually wants to lay on that

I have found that my dogs only like the flat ones. I've bought a few of the pillow type ones through the years and none of my dogs liked them. They don't want to have to climb up to it, I guess.

The dogs seem to think that dog beds are toys to rip off and the floor is the best place to sleep. Boris *never* sleeps on the couch, he just plays and rests a bit there, but will always go on the wood floor to sleep.

They're weird. I kinda want to buy something for them to sleep in at night in winter because the floor will be cold, but I'm not sure it will be any good.

Teddy has a flat one. We got it for long car rides so he has something to sleep on in the back but we never thought he would use it otherwise. but now he uses it all the time. He takes his bones on his bed to chew them or if he has a stuffed kong he will take that to his bed also lol and he moves the bed around to wherever he wants it lol.
