Dogs love human beds. Most owners have entered the bedroom to find their whole pack of dogs scattered across the duvet, some snoring with their heads comfortably tucked into the pillows.
In some cases, this is fine. But if you want your dog close – but not actually on the bed – then a canine trundle bed might just be the perfect solution for you!
Just in case you’re unfamiliar with these beds, a dog trundle is a bed that can go in and out of a human bed. You simply pull and slide it out whenever your pooch wants to rest. No longer in use? Just slide it back to save space in the bedroom.
Best Dog Trundle Beds
To buy a trundle bed, you need to keep a few things in mind. Things like the space available, your budget, and the size of your bed. The latter is going to be a feature in your home for years, so you can just as well choose something that is a quality product.
Trundle beds usually are available in two types. Some are accommodated underneath the mainframe of the bed. Others are made as sliding beds, looking similar to a drawer being pulled from the mainframe. Both make comfortable choices for dogs.
Speaking of dogs, the number of pets in your house also needs to be taken into consideration. Some trundle beds can fit two dogs at once while others are perfect for a trio of small pooches.
You can even purchase a kiddie trundle bed that can be shared by your child and dog if the two are particularly close friends! They can enjoy each other’s company even more this way.
Bed Frame with Built-In Dog Bed
Very often, built-in dog beds are the dream bed for pets and their owners. Even so, they are still relatively rare in the home. Here are some facts about this type of bed.
Built-in dog beds in the bed frame do not offer a sliding feature. They are either attached to the bottom of the bed frame or incorporated underneath.
Trundle dog beds are not always easily available, especially at brick-and-mortar stores. They are available at online stores, though. These beds can also be custom-made – but this can be a costly route to take. That being said, the expense might be worth it if your pet has a perfectly-sized and quality trundle bed to snuggle into every night.
Custom Made Beds
For some, it’s better to get the bed customized to suit their unique needs rather than buying a ready-made bed from online stores, which may not fit the dog. Worse, the bed might not even be the high-quality one that you had ordered.
Some customizations include having drawers as well as the dog beds built into the bed frame. This would enable and provide additional space in the room and perhaps allow you to keep your dog’s toys and blankets in one place. Another custom choice is the size which can range from small to really large.
Custom-made beds do require a high budget but are worth all of it. They offer proper height and weight support for your pet. You also know that the higher quality means that the bed is safer than most mass-produced trundle beds.
King-Size Bed with a Dog Trundle
While size remains your choice, we do feel that a king-size bed with a trundle offers the most luxury and space for both you and your pets. However, the downside is that the bed requires more space and this option is also more expensive than, say, a single bed with a trundle. Once again, this is entirely up to you but if you have more than two pets, it might be worth the investment to order a quality custom-made king-size trundle bed.
Some owners love to modify the whole thing and add a pair of nightstands, plenty of storage drawers and even stairs for older dogs so that they can easily reach their own trundle bed.
With the customization of these beds, you can use your imagination and add whatever you like or need. Consider the perfect textures, colors, extra luxury or comfort features, as well as the design.
Owning a king-size bed with a built-in dog bed has many advantages. It provides a grand look and can withstand a lot of weight.
Dog trundle beds are certainly an amazing way for dogs to stay close to their owner without taking over the whole bed! This is especially important if you need to keep an eye on a sick or disabled pet during the night. Indeed, these beds can make your best friend feel loved and taken care of at all times. A king-size bed might be the best option if you want top strength, support, and space for both you and your dogs.
