Best Dog Beds: 2020
Every dog deserves a lovely cosy bed.
Dog beds come in many different styles, so deciding which bed is best for your pup will depend on their size and age.
Not to mention how much they love to chew, and how warm the room they sleep in is.
If the bed is too small, the filling inside the bed will get squashed flat, thus leaving your dog vulnerable to developing pressure sores.
On the other hand, if you buy a dog bed that’s too big it could be drafty, therefore exposing your poor dog shivering on chilly nights.
Which means when choosing a dog bed, consider your all of your dog’s sleeping preferences.
Some pups enjoy curling up against the sides of the bed for warmth and comfort, whereas others prefer to stretch out flat, spilling out of their bed with legs akimbo.
Friends Forever Premium Orthopedic Dog Bed
The Friends Forever Premium Orthopedic Dog Bed* is perfect for elderly dogs and pups with joint problems.
The bed has a bolster for hip and neck support, and is designed to keep cold drafts out.
A super-thick, poly-fill orthopedic mattress eases aching joints and prevents pressure sores.
The liner is water resistant in case of accidents. The washable cover is easily removed via a zipper fastening.

The donut is comfy for dogs that like to sleep at practically any angle, and it is also orthopedic, and great for older dogs as well as young ones.
It comes in three different sizes, to suit the size of your dog (or home)!
Best Dog Food: 2020
Which dog food is the best product for dog depends upon their size, breed, age and health needs. Large dogs have different dietary needs from small ones. Senior dogs and puppies need specialised diets.
So in our search for the best dog food, 2020, we’ve focused on a couple of our favorite foods and treats for active, adult dogs.
Organix Chicken Cookies
And to really give your dog a treat in 2020, we love these organic Castor & Pollux Chicken Flavored Dog Cookies*.
They’re made with chicken, peas and brown rice, so they’re sure to be a tasty, healthy, treat.
Therefore they get our vote for the best dog food treat for 2020.
Best Dog Products for 2020: Dog Bowls
Leading naturally on from our favorite foods, every dog needs a sturdy, durable bowl.
It’s best to have a clean, undamaged dog bowl, due to the risk of nasty bacteria growing in old food residue and cracks.
Consequently we recommend replacing your dog’s dish as soon as it’s looking worn out.
The Neater Feeder Deluxe
The Neater Feeder Deluxe* mess-proof elevated bowl system is a smart, non-slip, non-tip double-dish feeding station.
The two bowls are made from high-quality, durable stainless steel.
The stand is designed to be kick-proof and spill-proof, so food stays on the top of the stand, and spilled water drains below.
The feeder comes in several different sizes for all breeds. There are several subtle shades to choose from.
The elevated feeding position and contoured design is better for your pet’s digestion and for senior dogs’ joints.
The Bone Dry DII Lattice Bowl
If you prefer a ceramic dog bowl, you’ll love the Bone Dry DII Lattice Ceramic Pet Bowl.*
The set of two bowls comes in three sizes. There are several colors to choose from, including aqua blue, navy and pale gray.
You can choose from a smart lattice design or traditional stripes, both with a cool paw print motif.
The porcelain ceramic material is dishwasher-safe, which makes it easy to keep your pet’s dishes free from germs and bacteria.
Each bowl is fitted with a silicone ring to prevent slipping and flipping.
Best Dog Products for 2020: Dog Water Fountain
If your dog is inclined to knock his water bowl over, a dog water fountain has to be on your list of the best dog products you could invest in.
The PetSafe Drinkwell Platinum Cat and Dog Water Fountain* has a large 168 oz. capacity and an adjustable stream, perfect for pets of all sizes or multiple pets.
The water is filtered through a replaceable carbon filter that gets rid of chemicals from tap water.
The fountain has a built-in reservoir to increase capacity and save you from having to keep refilling the fountain.
To clean the fountain, simply pop it on the top shelf of your dishwasher.
Best Dog Products for 2020: Dog Crates
All dogs, including puppies, like to have a space or den where they can take a nap.
Keeping your puppy in his crate also prevents him from chewing your furniture or stealing food when you’re not around to keep an eye on him.
Carlson Single Door Crate
The Carlson Single Door* metal crate comes in 5 sizes.
It’s foldable, and has a removable, washable pan in the base.

Both doors are secured with two slide-bolt latches for increased security and safety.
The sturdy dog crate can be folded flat for easy portability and storage.
This own-brand dog crate comes in a slightly lower price point than the MidWest Homes one, but it is of decent quality and represents great value for money.
Best Dog Harness: 2020
These days, more and more dog owners prefer to use a dog harness for exercise.
Harnesses avoid health risks to feisty pups who pull on the leash during exercise.
There are many different varieties of harness. Take a look at this article for more ideas.
But if you are only going to check out one harness, take a look at the Ruffwear Front Range* harness.
Best Dog Collar Products for 2020
Even when they are wearing a harness, a collar bearing your dog’s details is a legal requirement.
Next we’ve picked out a few options for the smart dog about town. Don’t forget to buy a tag that shows your contact information, in case he gets lost.
When fitting your dog’s collar, make sure it’s not so tight that your pup can’t breathe properly.
The collar shouldn’t be too loose either or it could become caught on low-hanging branches, presenting a potential danger of strangulation.
Fit the collar so that you can slide two fingers-width comfortably between the collar and your dog’s neck.
Custom Catch Personalized Dog Collar
The Custom Catch Personalized Dog Collar* is a beautiful leather collar that comes in a wide variety of trendy colors, including pink, blue, yellow, red and green.
