One other thought, my Mom used a jointed outdoor chair cushion for a dog bed - the kind youd use on a chaise lounge. She bought it for a steal at the end of the season and then sewed a quick cover from a cheap fuzzy blanket from the dollar store. We inherited the bed with her golden when she passed and although the pup died recently, we still have the bed. The cover is machine washable and the bed itself can be scrubbed and hosed off. All the animals like it and its perfect for the vehicles when we travel. Of course, we also have a selection of 5 or 6 other assorted beds for Casey and the cats and most get used at least sometime during the day.

I just want to add some points, if your dog has some kind of hip dysplasia or maybe arthritis, then the orthopaedic effects could help much in dealing with the swelling joint. It works well with my senior cat, but I guess it works well for the dog too. Not just for a senior dog, but I think for the overweight dog as well because of the obese dog has more stress on their joints.

The orthopaedic bed even made like a mattress, I mean with a padded surface and also some kind of inner springs. And also with bolster which resembles a lounging sofa. But it might be a little bit pricey than a normal dog bed if you look at the range of bed products here.
