Dogs need a lot of sleep! Although our dogs are free to use the furniture, they often choose their dog beds during the day. Since they spend a lot of time in their beds, it is important to find one that is comfortable for the dog. And since my dogs are usually in the same room as me, I want the bed to be visually appealing. Thanks to Alice G Patterson Photography for the photos!

Theo needed a new bed, so after some careful research, I decided to get him a dog bed from Nest Bedding. He loves it!
With so many dog beds available, it is easy to get lost in all the choices. I know that Theo prefers a bolster bed (giving him a built-in pillow), so I narrowed my search that way. Next, I wanted it to be washable as well as sturdy. This bed is canvas so that it can stand up to Theo’s toenails and is machine washable. (Hang to dry though!)
I’ve been reading the Regeneration Magazine since I met the founder last summer. As a result, I’m more conscious about the steps I can take to decrease my carbon footprint, as well as my dogs’ carbon pawprints. I was happy to learn that this bed contains 100% green recycled fill that is both breathable and non-absorbent. The Nest bed arrived in a cardboard box. There was no unnecessary plastic packaging, and that made me feel pretty good too!
There are two more great reasons to get a Nest dog bed. It comes with a two-year warranty!
I love how it is cozy and doesn’t detract from the room. We’ve had some trendy dog beds that became eyesores when we redecorated.
Now that Theo has a Nest bolster bed, he prefers it to the sofa, unless there is someone to snuggle with.
I bought a medium-sized bed for Theo, thinking that he and Nelly will curl up together in the winter. It gives him enough room to stretch out by himself, but he might have been okay with a small bed.
