    Looking for good quality dog bed for Cockapoo any recommendations? Wouldn't mind a heated one that runs on power, not interested is self heating ones, had one before no different to normal bed.

    I've recently switched my dogs bed to a duvet cover with a sheet and blanket, makes it much easier to clean and she now chooses to sleep in it (sometimes).

    I always had a small duvet folded in half so it's was nice and snugly for Amber as you say easy to keep clean. Dillon didn't do beds he was happy lying on the floor :rolleyes:

    I bought an orthopaedic bed years ago. A bargain to keep for Heidi’s retirement.
    OH insisted we see if she liked it and that was it. 8 years on, she still prefers the comfort of her bed over anything else. I’ve never had a dog love their bed so much.
    Covers are fully washable. I put a fleece blanket over it for regular washing and it’s still like new.
    From my experience I’d put comfort over warmth

    Thanks the comfort point is a good one, I surpose that makes my search a little tricker as I will be looking for heat and comfort.

    If you want heat you could always buy a Snugglesafe or plug in heat pad? Those are common options for rescue and boarding kennels.

    Does the dog sleep somewhere particularly cold?

    Just that my lean, thin coated lurcher will rearrange himself on top of fleeces if I cover him thinking he’s cold.

    I don’t think he’d like a heated bed tbh.

    We just bought a fairly bog-standard one for our cockapoo and she seems very happy in it.

    Unless yours is kept in an unheated outhouse, I wouldn't have thought they would need any heating source.
