Keep your little ol’ sausage dog cozy with this cute bed, but if he’s known to chew up beds - this is not the bed for you.

The bed does require some assembly to zip all of the cushion together, but it’s worth the hassle for a machine washable, tumble dryer safe bed that will last.
It’s worth mentioning that while the height at the top of the side cushions is twelve inches, the step up into the entrance is more like six or seven inches which isn’t too tall, even for Dash puppies.
Coming in two different sizes, the small is the best bed for dachshund homes with only one pooch, but if you’re lucky enough to have a miniature herd of these lovable pooches - you could get the big version and have a communal nest for everyone!
