Getting the right dog bed for your pet will improve their sleep and quality of life. But, how do you decide on one when there are so many products in the market and so many factors to consider? 

In this article, we surveyed 205 pet parents to see what factors they consider the most important when choosing a dog bed. Read on as we share their insights and the best dog bed recommendations!

Most Important Factors To Consider When Choosing A Dog Bed (Survey Statistics)

Infographic - Factors to consider when choosing a dog bed (survey statistics)

We conducted a survey with 205 local pet parents to ask them about the top factors that they considered when choosing a dog bed. Here are the results!

#1 Factor: Material

49.8% of pet parents chose material as the #1 deciding factor when choosing a bed for their pet, 26.8% chose it as their #2 deciding factor and 11.7% as their #3. More specifically, they are particular about how comfortable the material is, and whether the material is non-toxic and safe for their furkids. 

Some pawrents also mentioned that the beds have to be
cooling enough for Singapore’s weather and
sturdy and indestructible to prevent aggressive chewers from destroying it.

#2 Factor: Price

The next thing that most parents consider is the price point — 19.5% cited it as their #1 factor, 21% as their #2 and 29.8% as their #3. This is no surprise as we all know it’s pretty expensive to own a dog in Singapore.

In fact, SingSaver estimated the total cost of owning a dog for 10 years to be $17,484. And this is excluding the initial cost of buying or adopting the dog, the expenditure after 10 years of age and any additional expenses should they fall ill. A dog bed is part of the many expenses to consider!

#3 Factor: Size

The size of a dog varies quite a bit due to the many different breeds available. Thus, 11.7% of local pawrents named size of the bed as their #1 deciding factor, 23.4% as their #2 and 25.4% as their #3. 

Some also mentioned that the way their dog sleeps (i.e. curled up or stretched out) will determine the size of the bed chosen.


“If buying online, always double confirm the size of the bed or really measure how long your doggo is – we once underestimated the length of our furkid thinking 45cm is ‘quite big what’ when we bought her first few beds 😜”

— Mummy of @cocothejapchin and @scoobydoodle._.doo

#4 Factor: Design

Ranked at #4, the design of the dog bed was chosen by 11.2% of pawrents as their #1 factor, 20.5% as their #2 and 22.9% as their #3. 

After considering its functionality, it’s only natural for pawrents to consider the aesthetic. Afterall, who wouldn’t want a dog bed that’s both functional and fits into the interior theme of your home? 😍


“Do a thorough research about what kind of bed your dog needs at different life stages rather than bandwagon on whatever’s popular in the market. Older dogs will need beds with better joint support so they can get up easier after naps or long sleeps.

Every dog has different needs and preferences when it comes to fabric materials as well so that’s something to take into consideration too!”

Other common factors cited include being machine washable or easy to clean! This improves convenience for keeping up with hygiene.

Brand reputation and popularity are also considered as pawrents tend to trust long-standing brands and tried and tested products that are recommended by other pawrents.


One pawrent also quoted:
“Please do get a dog bed because once your dog overtakes your own bed, there’s no going back.”

    FAQs About Dog Beds

    We all know that our dogs need a comfortable space to sleep. While they can sleep almost anywhere at any time, a dog bed would provide them with a safe and comfortable place to retreat to when they need time alone. This will also help to instil discipline as they’ll be trained to sleep in a designated space.

    That’s a common misconception! Dogs actually need firm beds that aren’t too soft, as this will provide sufficient support for their joints. This is especially true for senior dogs who may find it hard to get in and out of bed. Common materials that pawrents opt for are polyester, microfibre and suede.

    An elevated bed provides ventilation which is great for Singapore’s warm weather. It also provides firm and even support for younger dogs. However, this may not be the best option for senior dogs as they’ll have trouble getting up and down unless a small flight of stairs is provided.

    While some dogs may prefer a larger, flatter bed to sprawl on, owners should consider one that isn’t too flat so that there’s sufficient cushioning for their pets’ joints.

    Dogs love cuddles and that’s the comfort that blankets bring them! If your dog sleeps in an air-conditioned room, you can consider providing him with a blanket to keep him warm. But if he’s sleeping in a non-airconditioned room, he may not need a blanket in Singapore’s weather.

    Dog beds should be washed thoroughly once a week, or at least once every 2 weeks to prevent any infestations of fleas and ticks. In between washes, you may also want to vacuum the bed regularly. To make cleaning up easier, pawrents are advised to get a bed that’s machine washable!

    Depending on your dog’s behaviour and traits, here are some places you can consider:

    • If your dog likes sleeping with you: Place the dog bed in your bedroom or near your bed.
    • If your pup is sensitive to loud noises and is a light sleeper: Have the dog bed in low-foot traffic areas which may include a secondary bedroom or study.
    • If he’s picky: Choose a spot where your dog always lies at in your home and place the dog bed there.
