How to Choose the Best Dog Bed for Huskies

When choosing the best dog bed for your Husky, there are a few things that we recommend you look for – the first of which is whether the bed offers orthopedic support.

It’s an unfortunate fact that Huskies are prone to joint problems in later life. One of the best things you can do to help prevent this is to provide them with a supportive bed for sleeping on during their active years. Therefore, we highly recommend that you chose a bed for your Husky that offers orthopedic support.

Orthopedic support can come from the material that the bed is made from (orthopedic foam or memory foam) or from the way it is designed (elevated bed, added neck bolsters etc.).

The second thing to consider is the size of the bed. Whilst Huskies are not amongst the biggest breeds out there, they’re also not amongst the smallest. If you have more than one Husky, you may want to buy a dog bed that’s big enough for them to share.

When purchasing your dog-bed, always make sure to check the manufacturer’s size guide to ensure you’re getting what you need.

Other things to look out for in a bed will depend on the needs of your specific Husky.

If your Husky is an avid chewer, you will want to look for beds that are made with a durable outer material that can withstand being gnawed at. If your Husky likes to sleep outside, you may want to consider buying a waterproof dog-bed that can withstand wet-weather and can be hosed down as necessary.

Those of you who travel often with your Husky should choose a dog bed that is easily transportable – or even useable in the car!

1. Ultimate Orthopedic Dog Bed by PetFusion

CHECK PRICE ON AMAZON

Number one on our list of the best dog beds for Huskies is the Ultimate Orthopedic Dog Bed by PetFusion. We love this bed as the high-quality foam provides a comfortable yet firm support for our Husky’s joints after a long day of exercise.

The thick bolster that lines the perimeter of the bed is perfect for providing your Husky with added neck support. To make cleaning easier, the bolster can be removed so that it can be washed separately.

The bed comes with a 3-year warranty but PetFusion have done everything they can to make sure you don’t need to use it. The inside mattress is protected by a waterproof liner and the outer cover is both water-resistant and tear-resistant.

If you do have an issue with your bed after receiving it, don’t worry! Many reviewers have raved about how good PetFusion’s customer service is.

The bed is available in three neutral colors but we recommend sticking to either the ‘Slate Grey’ (pictured) or the ‘Chocolate Brown’ to hide muddy pawprints and shedding easier. We’ve also found that the ‘X-Large’ size is ideal for most Huskies to give them plenty of space but other sizes are available to fit your needs.

WHY WE LOVE IT:

+ Firm orthopedic mattress provides excellent joint support

+ 3 colors and 4 sizing options available

Do you live in a warmer climate or struggle to keep your Husky cool during the summer months? The Cooling Elevated Pet Bed by AmazonBasics could be for you!

Elevated pet beds are rising in popularity thanks to the benefits they provide for double-coated dogs such as Huskies. The design of the bed keeps your Husky elevated 7-inches off of the ground, allowing air to flow freely around them and help keep them cooler.

The breathable mesh is stretched over the frame in a way that provides relief to your Husky’s joints and pressure points, similar to a hammock. Replacement mesh covers can be bought separately as needed.

The bed is easy to assemble and very sturdy despite the affordable price. We recommend purchasing either the medium or large size for your Husky depending on their weight.

Please note that we do not recommend this bed for Huskies who have issues with their joints that may prevent them from being able to step onto or off the bed.

WHY WE LOVE IT:

+ Helps to keep your Husky cool

+ Replacement mesh covers can be bought separately

+ Very affordable

It’s made of a solid slab of 5” thick medical-grade orthopedic foam which supports your Husky’s joints and soothes their pressure points for a deeper and more restorative sleep. The contours of the mattress promote an ergonomic sleeping position and allow for your Husky to get settled down quicker.

The cover is made from smooth micro velvet fabric that’s so soft it has made us jealous of our pups on numerous occasions! The cover can be easily removed and put in the washing machine to freshen it up as needed without losing any of its softness.

We’ve found that the ‘Jumbo’ size is ideal for most Huskies. If you live in a home with multiple Huskies, you may want to consider getting the ‘Giant’ size so that they can easily share a bed together.

Furhaven make it clear that this bed is not recommended for dogs with excessive teething or destructive chewing behaviours. If you are still training your Husky out of their chewing behaviours, we recommend purchasing a different bed from our list.

Available in several colors and sizes, this flat mattress is useful in many different situations.

Is your Husky crate trained? Use this mattress to provide them with a more comfortable sleeping base that can easily be washed in case of accidents.

Do you travel often with your Husky? This mattress is perfect for the trunk of your car! Simply lay it out for your Husky to comfortably sleep on and allow it to collect the hairs that would otherwise attach to your car’s upholstery.

Want to allow your Husky onto the sofa but don’t want them to scratch the fabric? You can use this mattress to lay flat over the sofa’s cushions and keep them protected whilst still allowing your Husky to snuggle up to you.

Have an elderly Husky who can’t step up onto taller dog beds? This mattress provides them with a comfortable and padded base that they can easily access by themselves.

The list of uses is endless, and we can’t recommend buying this dog mattress enough. As we’ve previously mentioned, the mattress is machine washable making it easy to keep fresh. The base has an anti-slip rubber bottom to prevent it from sliding around on hardwood or tiled floors.

Popular amongst owners of all dog-breeds is the Memory Foam Platform Dog Bed by Barkbox which is available with several different cover designs.

It’s easy to see why this dog bed is so popular. The inside mattress is made from 3” thick therapeutic gel memory and orthopedic foam which helps to relieve body aches in your Husky. The gel memory foam also improves temperature regulation to prevent your Husky from getting too warm whilst asleep.

The outer cover is machine washable but also waterproof which protects the inside mattress from any accidents. It can very easily be taken off and put back onto the mattress without having to struggle, making keeping it fresh a breeze.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out our answers to some of the most commonly asked questions regarding Huskies and dog beds.

Does a Husky need a bed?

It is recommended that you buy your Husky a dog bed to help minimise the risk of them developing joint problems in the future. A good dog bed will provide your Husky with joint support and help them to recover after the day’s exercise.

Providing them with a dog bed will also give them their own independent space where they can feel secure. Many Huskies will view their dog bed as a restful place where they can get away if they need to and so it’s important to provide them with one.

What size bed does a husky need?

It should come as no surprise that the size of the dog bed your Husky needs will depend on the size of your Husky. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as telling you what particular size to buy as there is a lot of variation between manufacturers. Sometimes we’ve found that a ‘medium’ is too big and that an ‘XX Large’ is too small!

We always recommend reading the manufacturer’s size guide before you purchase. We’ve found that it’s common for manufacturers to list what dog breeds are suited to each size, making choosing the right option much easier.

If you have more than one dog, you should also consider whether you need to buy a dog bed that is large enough for them to share.

What do Huskies like to sleep on?

In our experience, Huskies will sleep on pretty much anything – including hard ground! This is likely because of their history as a working breed in which they will often have been required to sleep outside.

Although they will sleep anywhere, we’ve found that once a Husky has been given a bed they will usually choose that as their default place to sleep. Soft surfaces such as orthopedic foam beds encourage better sleep and will help your Husky to recover from their exercise easier. Because of this, many Huskies prefer to sleep on soft materials wherever possible.
