Dog bunk beds offer many advantages to their owners. To start with, just like ordinary dog bed, the stacked bed allows your dogs to sleep on their own beds instead of yours. If you have multiple dogs, putting multiple single dog beds in your bedroom is not a wise idea as they may make your bedroom look and feel cluttered. Instead of requiring your dogs to sleep outside your bedroom, you can put one bunk bed (two if you have three or four dogs) in your bedroom so that your dogs can sleep near you instead of somewhere else in your home. The stacking design of the bed makes it a space-saving bed that keeps the roomy atmosphere of your room. A bunk bed can also be a great decorative element for your bedroom if it is designed creatively.
When choosing a bunk bed, there are many things to consider. You may want to use a dog bunk bed with stairs if you have puppies that cannot climb their beds without stairs. If your dog is large, you may want to use a specifically designed bunk bed that accommodates large dogs. Bunk beds with bowls and feeding station are also available if you want your dogs to eat and drink near their beds.
Dog Bunk Beds with Stairs
A dog bunk bed with stairs can be a perfect choice for puppies that need a set of stairs to reach their bed. The stairs may function not only as a ramp to reach the upper bed, but also as a kind of entertainment for the dogs, especially if they love climbing things. The texture on the surface of the stairs plays an important role in improving the grip and preventing accidental slipping from occurring.
Dog Bunk Beds for Large Dogs
Large dogs obviously need a bunk bed that is larger than ordinary pet bunk beds. The size of the bed for large dog breeds like Great Dane and German Shepherd may even be comparable to that of a child bunk bed. One important thing to mind when using dog bunk beds for large dogs is the maximum weight that they can bear. Because they are especially designed to accommodate large dogs, they must be sturdy enough to bear the dogs’ extra weight.
Dog Bunk Bed with Bowls
The design of a dog bunk bed with bowls might vary according to how the bed and the bowls are arranged. This bed may consist only of one single bed on the top with bowls located on the place where the lower bed is supposed to be. If the bed includes large stairs, the second bed might be included in the empty space under the stairs. With this design, two dogs or puppies can still use the combo bed.
Dog Bunk Beds with Feeding Station
A dog bunk bed may include not only a bowl for drinking, but also a feeding station where the dogs can enjoy eating right beside their bed. This feeding station usually occupies the space where the lower bed is usually located. It can be placed side by side with the bowl so that the dogs can enjoy easy access to both the water and the food. A feeding station of a bunk bed might be raised to provide enough space for drawer underneath it.
