A Complete Buyers’ Guide to Dog Beds

A Complete Buyers’ Guide to Dog Beds

There’s little debate these days about the benefits of dogs having their own beds. As they age, dogs can develop joint issues such as arthritis and hip dysplasia. Having a dog bed that supports your dog and provides added comfort is vital to both puppies and older dogs. Not to mention important for the dog owner who could develop back issues from sleeping in the same place while the dog naps peacefully in a human bed!

When shopping for a comfy bed for your dog, there are many questions that may arise. You want your dog to be comfortable in his own bed (not yours!) and to make sure that the bed is made of soft, yet durable materials so that your dog has a bed worthy of him.

Ideally, a dog bed should be made of a soft, washable material that supports your pet’s small or large frame while making her feel calm and comfortable. Put simply, a dog bed is a place where your dog can go to relax and feel at home. 

When you need to leave the dog alone for a little while, the dog bed can act as a security blanket until you return. Rather than sleep on the hard floor, a dog bed helps your dog get comfortable and rest properly after a long walk or run. A dependable, supportive bed is just as important for your pet as it is for you.

Examples of dog beds for Canadian pet owners 


Cloud pillow dog bed

These dog pillows come in different patterns and colors. BeOneBreed has cloud pillow dog beds with 100% memory foam filling and an ultra-soft removable cover for easy cleaning. Just throw in the wash! These dog beds are perfect for growing pups, or elderly pets, as the bed reduces pressure on hips and joints. Think orthopedic quality without the high price tag. We also sell a protective liner for our cloud pillow to keep the foam clean from dirt and spills. The PVC membrane of our covers repel liquids (i.e., water resistant, not waterproof). Check out the many patterns and colors to suit all dogs–and dog owners!

Pet cuddler is a small dog bed for those furry friends who enjoy curling up. At BeOneBreed, the shape of this calming dog bed is round and has elevated sides so that dogs feel like they are in a cocoon. Soft, cozy, and with a contemporary design to match your stylish decor. 

Pet basket is great for small dogs as the sides are raised for extra comfort and coziness. Although small, BeOneBreed pet baskets are spacious for a smaller breed of dog who likes to move around and feel secure, not cramped. These baskets will match a contemporary decor or a more rustic one for summers at the cottage. 

What questions to ask when comparing brands: 

  • Is it made of durable materials?
  • Does it include a warranty?
  • Is it vet-approved
  • Is it orthopedic?
  • What’s the company’s return policy?
  • Are buyers raving about it online?
  • Is it Canadian-based?
  • Does it have a removable cover for easy cleaning.
  • Is it machine washable?


All our dog beds are designed in Quebec, Canada, and our patterns are BeOneBreed originals and made with human-grade materials (i.e., memory foam, micro-velvet and Oxford fabrics). Our beds and/or covers are machine washable and we sell spare stylish covers for our popular cloud pillow. Changing the cover increases the bed’s lifespan (i.e., durability) and also adds fun and freshness to your home. 

Some features of our dog beds that set us apart:

  • Memory foam dog beds
  • Removable covers (most beds have zippered covers for easy cleaning)
  • Spare covers with seasonal patterns (cloud pillow only)
  • Machine washable
  • Protective liners for cloud pillow (sold separately)

All our dog products bear the mark of our brand that stands for durable, stylish, Canadian-designed, and passion–for our pets!

Why buy from a Canadian-made company?

There are several online stores that sell dog beds, and it’s hard to know what you’re getting. Especially since you can’t reach into your computer or phone with your dog and have your pet test it out. 

We may be biased, but we believe that buying locally designed products for your pet counts for something. BeOneBreed gives you the assurance that the piece was designed by actual professional designers who are also pet owners, and passionate about providing the best quality products for pets. 

BeOneBreed is a Quebec-based company that designs pet products for optimal comfort, wellbeing and fun. When you buy from a big pet store or department store it’s hard to know who designed your dog bed and whether they actually test them on dogs to make sure they’re comfortable and will support your furry friend–big or small and young or old. As local designers and manufacturers, we do this all the time. And because we’re a cohesive and caring team, we take that extra care to get it right.

We offer our customers a 30-day warranty on all our beds (i.e., through normal wear and tear, not pet chewing), an online secure and fast purchase, and our products come in a range of designer colours and styles. A proudly Canadian company, we’re passionate about our pets–and yours, too! Take a closer look at our BeOneBreed dog beds on our website. Have a question about a product of interest?
