Features to look for in a Tartan Dog Bed
Style and size
Tartan Dog Beds come in various shapes and sizes, so you will need to decide what style of tartan you prefer as well as the size of the bed.
Some tartan dog beds have an oval shape and style, while others are rectangular. Other options include a dog basket with a tartan cushion.
A further consideration is the colour and design of the bed. Traditional red, Scottish tartan is very popular and this is a feature of some of our recommended beds such as the Bunty Heritage Dog Bed or the Scruffs Highland Box Bed. Other shades of tartan are available or you may want to consider a tweed design.
Whatever your preference, you should always select a bed which is suitable for the size that you have available, and most importantly is suitable for the size of your dog.
Dogs like comfort, so it is usually worth spending a little bit more for a bed with high quality materials and more durability.
A good quality tartan dog bed should have a soft and comfortable sleeping area so that your dog can settle down for a long rest. It should also be able to withstand the rigours of pet and family life.
Dogs can spend a lot of time in their beds, which means that they can get quite dirty. It is therefore important to select a bed that is easy to wash and maintain.
The interior cushion on many dog beds can be removed for easy washing when required, whereas others can just be thrown in the machine in their entirety.
Make sure that you wash the bed on a regular basis and follow the care instructions from the manufacturer.
