Why every dog needs a bed to call their own
Don't underestimate the security a dog feels when he is lying snug in his pet bed, enclosed in the comforting softness of it's four walls.
Dogs are social animals and take great comfort from the feeling of another dog pressed up againts them as they sleep. If it's a one dog household, a dog will squeeze in as tight as they can to a human. And if they aren't able to sleep with their humans, then the next best thing is to be gently confined by something soft and secure: a dog bed, their own little fortress where they can relax and unwind.
A dog bed also mimics a shallow pit that a wild dog will dig in the earth to keep cool in the heat and to keep warm in the cold: you may have even seen your dog do this on a hot summer's day. This is almost certainly the reason why your dog will scratch up their bedding before lying in it: their instinct is telling them to dig before lying down.
Ideally a dog bed should be high enough to allow your dog to lounge against it's walls and without spilling out. You may want two different size beds: in the winter, dogs often like to curl up into a ball to conserve heat, so a round dog bed which gently cradles their bodies as they do so is ideal. But in the summer heat, a hot dog will sprawl out, often lying on their backs and a larger dog bed or a dog mattress or pillow is more suitable, to allow air to circulate.
