The experts agree that your dog needs its own bed to sleep soundly. 

Actually, a study conducted in 2017 indicated that while having a dog around improved the quality of sleep for their owners, the situation was much better when the two were not sharing a bed. 

Investing in a dog bed is a win-win: it will provide your four-legged friend a comfortable place to sleep and give you some peace and quiet when you need it. 

Plus, a dog bed has the potential to endure for years, unlike other necessities like food, toys, and treats (provided your puppy doesn't rip it to shreds). 

The experts agree that your pet needs a bed that is big enough for them to stretch out on all fours while yet resting their body on it.

A dog's weight is a good indicator of the recommended bed size. Beds designed for larger dogs are usually fine for smaller dogs as long as they can still easily get in and out of them.  

However, this isn't always the case for medium and large dogs. 

Think about getting a bed with a detachable, machine-washable cover and, ideally, an impermeable inner cover if your dog gets dirty easily or has accidents often.
