    Does anyone know where I can get outdoor dog beds like this? Modern Dog (for those who get their email) sent out a sponsor one today and they highlighted a bed like this. But after going on the website that made it couldn't find the product at all. Nonetheless I thought it might be a good idea to get something for the porch so Precious can enjoy the sun from time to time. As of right now, we don't have any beds or mats really suitable for outdoors. Can anyone recommend any brands or types of beds I could look in to buying?? I do prefer the ones slightly off the ground so the bed doesn't get dirty. Thank you

    That's Lilly and Dusty in bed #2. They live in Ny I have come to know their Mom on Fb. Along with being models they are also therapy dogs and do alot of great work in the community. Gypsy just got a Birthday card from them.

    The breeder Buffy came from had a bunch of those raised cots like #3. (I think they come in a simpler model too). She said the dogs love them because the air circulates underneath when it's hot.

    "Good Outdoor Dog Beds?"

    Yeah, its called Grass. :winkgrin:

    Sorry, had to throw that in, just kidding. :smile2:

    I'm really interested to see what people's answer's are.

    When we're outside my shelties usually lie on the ground or in the grass. Some times they'll lie on our porch furniture, but if its hot they usually prefer the ground. I'm not sure that my guys would use beds outside.

    If you want something for outside, this might be good.

    mine don't use them inside for the most part- pretty sure outside would be waste of money:winkgrin::lol:

    I know!!!!! I would love to get one for Riley, but I don't think he would like an outdoor bed.....He prefers the ground UNDER me most of the time. Maybe when he's older? Or when we get a house with a screen porch!! He'd match my wicker patio set!!!!
