The type of dog bed that’s best for your pup depends on how they like to sleep. Some dogs prefer to stretch out when they sleep. If your dog is a sprawler whose legs are seldom tucked in, a large rectangular bed might be best for your dog’s sleep style. However, many dogs—regardless of size—enjoy curling up and tucking in for the night, at least some of the time. If this sounds like your pup, a round dog bed is probably the right choice.
Once you’ve determined what kind of sleeper your dog is, you can choose which specific style of round pet bed suits them best. Bolster dog beds with protective sides that make them feel somewhat enclosed and secure might be coziest to some dogs. If you have a large or active dog whose joints are under strain during the day due to their size or activity level, they might feel most comfortable in a big round dog bed with a pillow shape that cushions and relieves joint pressure while they sleep. Petco has a variety of circle dog bed options to suit the needs and preferences of many different dogs—and their pet parents.
