Do You Put Your Dog’s Bed Inside or Outside?

In modern times this has become a much-deliberated question: should dogs sleep inside or outside? At the end of the day as long as your dog is warm and safe that is all that matters, whether they be inside or outside. As a dog owner, this is entirely up to you, but be sure to weigh your options before making a final decision.

When deciding if your dog will sleep inside or outside there are some important factors to consider:


Certain dog breeds are more adept to brave the cold than others, so be sure to take this into consideration before putting dogs outside without the proper heating.

Dogs that cannot handle the cold include:

  • Bulldogs
  • Yorkshire Terriers
  • Boxers
  • Great Danes
  • Boston Terriers
  • Chihuahuas
  • Weimaraners
  • Whippets
  • Dalmatians
  • Staffies

Dogs that are more adept to cold weather include:

  • Chow Chows
  • Alsatians
  • Saint Bernards
  • Shiba Inu
  • Siberian Huskies
  • Tibetan Terriers
  • Newfoundlands
  • Bernese Mountain Dogs
  • Tibetan Mastiffs


Luckily, the South African climate doesn’t often get unbearably cold, especially when your dogs can access some sunlight throughout the day. The South African climate means one must also take measures to ensure your dogs stay cool during the summer.

If your dog will be spending winter nights outside you need to invest in shelter and a dog bed. The shelter (like an igloo or dog house) will keep out any wind chill and the bed will keep them both warm and comfortable. Come sun, snow, rain or shine, dogs need high-quality dog beds from trusted dog bed manufacturers to ensure they are safe and warm wherever they may sleep.
