5 Ways To Help Your Dog Feel Like They Belong

Helping new pets feel at home is a bit of an art form, and no one knows that better than Jane Pearson, owner and mastermind behind Janery, a designer pet bed company focusing on style, function, and ethical manufacturing. Inspired by her rescued dog, Charlie, Jane’s soft spot for animals now give pets a soft place to land–with pet beds pretty enough to place in every room.

She offers the following tips for helping your new dog feel welcome in their new home.

Embrace the form.

Dog beds get relegated to dark corners for lots of reasons, since they are traditionally kind of frumpy–and that’s putting it nicely. The more the bed looks and feels like a beautiful accessory in the space, the more your dog will feel like he belongs, too.

Keep it fresh.

If there’s one thing pet owners have in common, it’s a love of animals–and an aversion to a house that smells like them. Seek out beds with waterproof, odor-resistant liners and modern, washable, upholstery-weight fabrics that can withstand wear.  One way to make pets comfortable and welcome in every room is by providing a conveniently-placed bed that complements your decor, so they aren’t compelled to hang out on your furniture.

Find what fits their needs.

Pets come in different sizes and shapes, and they all sleep differently. If you are wondering how to find the right size dog bed, pay attention to their position. Some small dogs like to stretch, some big dogs like to curl into a small donut, and some dogs don’t like to sleep alone. Your dog’s weight is a good starting point for choosing the right bed, but his sleep shape matters just as much.

Create consistency.

Firm rules and structure help dogs know where they fit in and how to function happily in the family. Finding a dog bed that works–and sticking with it–gives your dog a sense of security. While cheaper, conventionally manufactured dog beds aren’t meant to last; the filling gets bunched, the seams rip, and most fabrics can’t be washed effectively. Think about how you’d feel if someone kept switching out your mattress just as you got comfortable–it’s not a great feeling.

Give some space.

While it’s important to help your pet feel at home, it’s just important to give them their own space. Give your new dog a stylish-yet-functional dog bed next to a couch or tucked in the corner, so pets are close enough where they feel like they are in on the action, but far enough away to get a rest if they need it. Lightweight washable pet mats can also help cover sofas and chairs for pets who are invited up.

Of course, even if you find the perfect dog bed and put it in the perfect spot, it may take some time for your dog to make an instant connection to your home. Rest assured, this transition phase will pass, and it won’t be long before you–and your dog–can’t remember a time when you didn’t belong together.

How to Choose the Best Dog Bed

Brought to you by BuddyRest 


With so many dog beds on the market, it can be difficult to know which one to choose. Selecting the
right dog bed for the buddy in your life is an important decision – and one which shouldn't be taken

A great dog bed will last a lifetime, and can hugely improve your dog's quality of life. But the truth is
that not all dog beds are created equal.

In this post, we will share our top tips for choosing a dog bed that will stand the test of time, support
your dog's health, and provide a cozy resting place that they'll just love.

So, let's get started …


Just like humans, dogs need a comfortable place to rest and sleep. Here are some pointers to help you choose a bed that's comfortable – and will stay that way:

Match the bed to your dog's size – Before buying a bed, measure your dog from nose to tail with a tape measure to ensure they'll have plenty of space to stretch out. For dogs that prefer to curl up, you may want to choose a bed with raised and cushioned edges that cradle your dog and provide security.

Choose a bed constructed from high-quality materials – A good bed should provide adequate cushioning that protects your dog from the hard floor. High-quality modern fabrics retain their shape, preventing the bed from flattening down after regular use.

Consider your dog's individual needs – If you live in a colder climate, or own a dog that chills easily, a partially enclosed bed will help keep them warm. Many dogs – especially long-haired breeds – have the opposite problem. They tend to overheat, so choose a bed that's open and made of a material that stays cool, even in summer.


Proper support is very important to your dog's health. Bigger dogs in particular can suffer from
painful arthritis and joint problems that can shorten their lifespan if left untreated.

As dogs age they become susceptible to joint problems and stiffness in their limbs. The best way to
avoid this is by providing a bed that offers excellent support as early on in your dog's life as possible.

That's why orthopedic beds are such a great solution for all canine companions. They're designed to
support the joints, back, and overall body, keeping your dog fit and healthy. It is important to note that Orthopedic or memory foam dog beds are not just for old dogs. All dogs can benefit from having a pressure free support and it is a great proactive measure since most dogs will end up with joint problems.

The highest quality modern dog beds are made from real visco elastic memory foam which conforms
to your pet's body and redistributes their weight evenly across the bed. With standard memory
foam, the weight of the animal's body causes them to sink too far into the bed, causing pressure
points and overheating.

truly orthopedic bed should provide the following:

  • Excellent support for the whole body
  • Straight spinal alignment
  • Soothing pressure relief


As we mentioned earlier, a high-quality bed will last throughout your dog's lifetime. Look for top
quality materials that are resistant to abrasion and chewing. Smaller details such as tough stitching
and hidden zippers are signs of craftsmanship and durability.

Cheap dog beds can stain easily and become smelly. When selecting a dog bed, choose a material
that's resistant to stains and odors. Antibacterial fabrics can considerably extend the lifespan of the
bed. They also help keep your dog safe from allergens and harmful canine skin diseases caused by
mold and bacterial growth.

Other Premium Features to Consider

Waterproof Material – Waterproof material increases the durability and longevity of a dog bed and makes cleaning up easy when accidents happen.
Removable Covers – A high-quality dog bed will rarely need washing, but when you do need to freshen up your dog's bed, a removable cover will make the job a whole lot easier!

Living The Dream With Messy Mutts



All MESSY MUTTS™ beds use patented EVERFRESH® probiotic technology to continuously provide natural, non-toxic odor control.  This innovative process of bonding beneficial microbes, found all around us in nature, to the surface of fabric results in natural, non-toxic odor control that is safe and effective.  Natural, environmentally friendly, and non-toxic.

EVERFRESH® uses proprietary pro-biotic technology to reduce and control odors naturally instead of using chemicals such as anti-microbials, anti-bacterials or masking agents like perfumes.  Beneficial microbes, which are naturally occurring and found in the earth’s soil and streams, are bonded to the surface of the fabric.  This innovative process of applying live micro-organisms to fibers results in continuous, non-toxic odor control that is safe and effective.  All they leave behind is odorless water and carbon dioxide which dries and evaporates.

Silver ion and other chemical antibacterial treatments are consumed fighting the bacteria and lose effectiveness over time.  EVERFRESH’S® friendly microbes are not consumed, in fact they multiply and increase over time, so they are always ready to attack the next organic matter for continuous odor control!

These generously stuffed dog beds are also the perfect place for your messy mutt to chase their dreams. A beautiful addition to your living space, these beds are constructed using premium, heavy-duty upholstery that is removable for easy cleaning, machine washable and features a reversible cushion! What’s more, EVERFRESH® is designed to last the lifetime of the beds; it withstands machine washing and messy mutt ‘loving’.  The nonslip bottom keeps the beds in place for your lively mutt. Snoozing at its finest!
