The Labrador is consistently voted the most popular breed in the UK so we think they deserve a category all their own! After all, the Labrador comes in different sizes and performs many different functions from assistance work to field work to no work at all so it stands to reason that the same bed will not suit all Labs. Labradors are playful and generally active dogs that love swimming so a dog bed for a Labrador needs to be hard-wearing and robust but above all waterproof and washable. Labrador owners say that a large dog bed, around 36” in diameter, is the best size dog bed for a Labrador of average size – about 32-36kg fully grown - to ensure comfortable, restful sleep. Older Labradors commonly suffer from arthritis or in some cases hip dysplasia so as your dog ages you may need to look at changing to an orthopaedic dog bed or a memory foam dog bed to provide greater support for aching joints. Whether your Labrador is a working dog or a house pet, it is so important that they have enough good quality sleep to stay healthy and happy. Read our reviews below on different types of Labrador dog bed to ensure your dog gets the best night’s sleep.
