Maybe it’s in their genes, or maybe they just appreciate the comfort of curling up beneath a blanket, but a burrower will not rest until they’re, well, buried. If you’re in the habit of patting piles of blankets on the couch before sitting just to make sure there isn’t a dog hidden underneath, you know what I mean. And your pup will LOVE you for providing them with any of the burrow-friendly beds below.
With 4 colors to match any decor and a super soft plush interior, this bed is out to please both your dog and you. To be honest, I’d crawl inside one of these myself and disappear for a while. Like most burrowing beds, it’s geared more toward small dogs (think no more than 10lbs of pup). Many reviewers claim their dog won’t sleep anywhere else after receiving this bed—and really, who would want to?
If my bed looked like this, I might actually try to be in it before 11PM every night. Then I’d never leave. My favorite thing about this particular bed is that it comes in 3 sizes ranging from small (28x38cm) to large (48x58cm) to satisfy a variety of small animals. It’s made with fleece & a spongy material on the inside, and even claims to be washable, though I would recommend the gentle cycle on your machine.
This is exactly how it sounds: a really soft bag-like “bed” that’s really more of a warm blanket. It’s EXACTLY the kind of thing my Dachshund would have gone nuts for. The opening of the sack is bolstered with a thick, cushioned support that acts as a pillow, and you can throw the whole thing in the wash with no regrets. The Snuggle Sack also comes in 3 sizes.
This bed wins the race in terms of plush-ness. The inside is lined with warm sherpa fabric, and the “hood” is stiff to keep it propped up. The outer cover is easily removable for washing, but good luck getting away with that, because you might not see your pup for a while after crawling into this one…
My dog loves a good bolster on her bed, but this one knocks any of hers out of the park. The Deep Dish Cuddler is all that and more—it’s great for pups up to 20lbs, is coated in soft sherpa fabric, and is pretty much just a big, cozy hug in bed-form. Drape your dog’s favorite blanket over the top and you’re good to go.
I couldn’t resist adding another bed from this company. The Cozy Cuddler—unlike the Deep Dish Cuddler above—comes with a hood sewn into the bed to serve as a pseudo-blanket and provide something to actually burrow underneath. It’s super soft on the inside and is covered on the outside with durable corduroy fabric.
This nifty device is a cozy blanket uniquely shaped to wrap around the bed you already have at home. It covers small beds up to 22″ long and secures on the underside with velcro. Then, viola! Your dog has an instant cave in which to disappear for a few hours.
