You should have at least one bed for your pet, even if they sleep with you and you allow them on furniture. It’s good to give your dog a nice space to go to relax and feel comfortable, especially when you’re not home.
Having multiple beds is ideal. Since dogs tend to follow their pet parents, placing a dog bed in rooms you frequent most helps to ensure they have a comfortable place to relax—this is especially important for older dogs whose joints stiffen on cold floors. Some good dog bed placement ideas are:
- The kitchen
- The living room
- Placing a weather-proof cot on your porch or deck
