Discover Your Pet's Perfect Sleep Style with FurHaven Pet Beds

FurHaven's Guide To Dog and Cat Sleep Styles

Just like their humans, pets have unique sleep styles that influence how they get comfortable and drift off into dreamland. At FurHaven, we understand the importance of catering to these individual preferences to ensure your furry friend gets the best rest possible. Whether your pet is a Leaner, Burrower, Curler, or Sprawler, we have the perfect bed to meet their needs and help them achieve a deeper, more restorative sleep.

1. Pet Beds for The Leaner (Snuggler):

Also known as the Snuggler, the Leaner finds their best rest by cuddling up against the softest object they can find. These pets take comfort in soft support and benefit from beds with bolsters or walls for resting sleepy heads, tired paws, and chins. FurHaven offers a range of beds tailored to the needs of Leaners, providing them with the oh-so cozy support they crave for a restful night's sleep. Our bolstered beds are perfect for these cuddly companions.

      For the Burrower, private, dark sleep spaces are essential for coziness. These pets crave the security of blanket-top mattresses, donuts with deep pocket walls, and hooded soft fiber-railed beds. Burrowers, who may be more anxious, prefer spaces with hiding spots for both themselves and their toys. FurHaven offers a variety of beds designed with Burrowers in mind, providing them with the snug, secure environment they need to feel safe and comfortable.

                  Named for their ability to contort their bodies into a donut shape, Curlers seek out small, cozy spaces for sleep. These pets benefit from nest-style beds with soft bases and rounded shapes, providing the gentle support they crave for a long, restorative sleep. FurHaven's selection of nest-style beds are ideal for Curlers, offering them the comfort and security they need to curl up and relax.
