Let Sleeping Dogs Lie: Snoozer Orthopedic Cozy Cave Pet Bed

I have a confession.

I am a floor sleeper.


I have NEVER met a bed that I have liked. NEVER.

Doubt that I will.

This makes my Mom tear her hair out!

Back in August, Mom entered a give-away

on one of her favorite blogs:

 The prize was a 

Snoozer Orthopedic Cozy Cave Pet Bed

Mom was completely ECSTATIC when she was chosen as the winner! Mom chose the same bed as above, but the color she chose was olive green.

Notice how the dog above isn’t ME?


Nope, I don’t!

Mom thinks that I am NUTS!

The bed is plush, well-made, high-quality, GORGEOUS!

It has:

  • Poly/Cotton exterior
  • Sherpa interior
  • Machine-washable cover
  • 3″ orthopedic foam
  • Topped with 2” layer of polyester batting for added cushion and comfort
  • Extra deep sleep surface
  • Rust-proof brass zipper
  • Available in a variety of fabric options


It comes in:

  • Small: 25 in. Diameter x 4 in. Sidewall
  • Large: 35 in. Diameter x 4 in. Sidewall
  • X-Large: 45 in. Diameter x 4 in. Sidewall


Mom ordered the Large and it is everything that Snoozer Pet Products says that it should be!

The problem isn’t them…it’s ME!

This is making Mom ask the question…am I the ONLY dog that won’t sleep in a bed of their own?


Where do YOU sleep?

Inquiring Moms want to know!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  1. Well, I myself prefer where my Mom sleeps, whether it be her recliner or her…err…I mean, our queen-sized bed. Now, Mi-Mi likes her kitty-sill, cuz it is high and I can’t sneak in for midnight attacks. I can’t say I like the floor, cuz it’s too hard!
    Purrs from your kitty buddy,

    • Hi BoBo…none of this is a surprise to me because you are a CAT! BOL! Cody would NEVER sleep on the floor. He finds the most comfortable places to sleep…unlike ME! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  2. Hi Dakota,

    Ellie is just like you. She’s a floor sleeper too. Well, she is now. She used to sleep in her open crate at night until Charlie came to live with us. Then he took it over as well as the bed we bought for him. He’s claimed both beds as his, so Ellie stays away from both. In fact, she generally avoids the carpet in our bedroom and prefers to lie on the tile in the bathroom. Audrey loves to sleep on a bed that is too small for her, but squishes herself into it. I should send you a picture sometime – it clearly doesn’t look comfortable!

    • Hi Debbie! Yay for Ellie!!! She likes the floor too!!! Ohhh I would LOVE to see a photo of Audrey!!! If you get a chance, please send! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  3. Oh Dakota, I have a lovely sheepskin bed Humom bought me, I will’z sleep in it in the day but at night, I’z really naughty…I sneak downstairs and sleep on the couch..she caught me the other night..BOL xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

    • Hi Mollie and Alfie! Mom would let me sleep on the couch but I won’t even do THAT! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  4. hahaha Dakota, you made us laught !! You human should be happy, you are saving her some money paper ^^
    I like to sleep almost everywere, on the floor, in my bed, in my humans bed when I manage to sneek in… As long as I’m comfortable, I don’t mind !!
    Link only wants to sleep on the couch (it used to drive our humans crazy… but then they gave up ^^)

    Woos of love.

    Echo & Link

  5. We like the look of the cave bed. Have a lovely Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

    • Hi Molly! So does Mom! We wish you lived near us, we would give it to you! It is just too large to ship 😦 Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  6. You’re not alone, Dakota. I’ve refused most beds. I like to sleep across the front door on the floor. They bought me a new bed recently and I use that occasionally – it’s vinyl on a frame. If they put the sheepskin cover on, I won’t use it at all.

    • Yay Clowie!!! You have joined us on “Team Floor!!!” Could it be because we are so “fluffy?” Barks and licks and love, Dakota

      • I think it probably is.

      • me too 🙂

  7. I’m the same, I sleep on the floor or on my favourite leather armchair. I might have a quick cuddle on mummy and daddy’s bed or on the sofa but I get too hot. I have a cushion-type bed in their room but I never use it either!

    • YAY Misaki!!! Eva and I aren’t the only crazy doggies!! YAY!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  8. Misty always chose the floor too! I thought that maybe it kept her cooler?

    Oreo and Chewy get lots of use out of their beds, but their favorite bed of all is mine!

    • Awww dear sweet Misty! She was like me and Eva! Now Oreo and Chewy completely disproved Mom’s theory that it is a “Sheltie Thing!!” I do it cool or not! Go figure! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  9. No way.. Sometimes Jack sleeps on the floor, but usually all of my three find somewhere to sleep that’s soft. They have an option between three human beds, the couch, and a giant dog bed, but if they want to sleep closer to us, wherever we are, they find literally anything soft.. Full laundry basket, even a thin sheet that my sisters spread out to sit on the floor sometimes. ANYTHING is better than the floor. And Jack also prefers an elevated pillow.

    • Cynthia…all of your pets are normal…Dakota…obviously isn’t! He is permitted on BOTH couches and STILL uses the floor 🙂 Love, “Mom”

  10. I’m a bed sleeper. This bed is just wonderful, it looks so comfy and cozy … like the ugg boots :o)))) My mom is ecstatic too, said she would sleep always there – but I’m afraid she isn’t foldable ;o)

    • Easy yep I know you are! 🙂 Ohhh that bed DOES look like UGG boots! BOL! Your Mom isn’t “foldable” BOL! You know what? Maybe this could be used as like a bean bag chair? Hmmmm….Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  11. I’m with you. I’m a floor sleeper too! I can roll over from left to right and then right to bed, I can roll twice and I’m still on my bed without having the fear of falling off the bed.


    • Hi Eva!! YAY!! YOU are a “FLOOR SLEEPER” too!!! I think it is a Sheltie thing!! Love what you said about not falling off of the bed. Could THAT be why we do it? Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  12. We Greyhounds and Morgan prefer the couch or a fluffy bed, and of course I allow Mom and Dad to sleep on my king-sized bed at night. Kuster, on the other paw, shreds every bed he gets, so he usually sleeps on the hard floor.


    • Hi Bunny! Hmmm maybe I am more like Kuster? I used to tear up beds too. I don’t tear them up anymore but I certainly don’t use them! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  13. I sleep snuggled in a blanket. You’re crazy Dakota, that looks like an awesome bed!

    • Roxy I know. My mom is ready to tear her hair out. The other strange thing? Cody usually adopts EVERY bed that am not using…he hasn’t touched this and no one can figure out why? It is soooooooo beautiful and comfy! Bet Cody will use it in the winter. Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  14. BOL!!! I sleep lots of places! On a dog bed, in the human bed, under the human bed, and yes, on the floor. BOL!!! I guess it depends on how hot or cold it is. Maybe you will sleep on your new bed in January when it is cold? Unless your humans crank up the heat, then you probably won’t.

    • Hi Pepper! That is great that you sleep everywhere…my Mom would LOVE you! Nope..my Mom keeps the heat no higher than 70! She likes it COLD!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  15. I’m an an “undecided” dog. I lie in my bed, and on the floor, and in my bed again, and then on the floor again. I do this ALL night. Makes the peoples nuts!

    • Hi Toby! BOL!! But at least you USE the bed! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  16. Oh dear Dakota. Sammy & I like to share a bed. Mom tried getting us fancy, soft and pillowed beds but I (Wally) proceeded to wee on them continually, which is why we now have the plastic bucket bed with 2 blankets in it, it’s easy to clean. We must admit though,by the middle of summer most nights you will find us spread flat on our tummies, back legs out on the cool floor tiles.

    That really is a beautiful bed…something Mom also wishes she could buy us…but it would never work *BOL*

    Wally & Sammy

    • Wally and Sammy, that bucket is a brilliant idea! I know..Mom is thinking of donating my bed if I don’t start using it. It is a great bed. Too big to mail to someone though….Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  17. We are getting this bed. Mom has been looking at it. Thanks!
    Benny & Lily

    • Hi Benny & Lily!! Be sure to take photos so I can actually SEE SOMEONE using it!! lol Love, “Mom”

  18. Hahaha Dakota,
    You made us laugh !! I can sleep almost everywere, on the floor, on my bed, on the human’s bed when I managed to sneek in…
    Link can only sleep on the couch ! It used to drive our humans crazy but now he has a nice blanket to sleep on the couch and not leave his hairs everywhere ^^ And everyone is happy that way 😀

    Woos of love.

    Echo & Link

    • Hi Echo & Link! I love making you laugh! BOL!! I won’t even sleep on the couch! Geeze! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  19. Hey Dakota,

    I get the whole sleeping on the floor thing, cos I like to do it too!! But I also like to sleep in my bed sometimes – and I love how snuggly your bed looks Dude – I think I’ll pop over to test it out?! Tee Hee

    Big wags,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Hi Snoopy! Hey!! C’mon over and try it before Mom gives it away! I heard her on the phone with a friend of hers that has a black labrador named buddy and she was asking if Buddy would like the bed!! OMD! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  20. I gotta say Dakota, that’s pretty strange indeed. Though it’s a blessing in a way, we have trouble keeping our dog off the beds in the house. If she was a floor sleeper like you, we’d probably save a lot in laundry. 😛

    • Hi Kristine! Mom agrees with you a zillion-percent! Mom also laughed at your comment! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  21. The cave bed your Momma won is awesome! Too bad you won’t sleep in it Dakota. Well, maybe Cody will use it. hehehe! Fred and Gloria hate sleeping on the hard floor. they usually prefer the furniture but do use there own beds…….on occasion! LOL!

    • Hi Bassetmomma ! Yeah it is! Yep..too bad and Cody isn’t using it either! Looks like a black lab might just inherit it! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  22. Doggy is exactly the same, he used the bed to terrorize my place, he drags it all over the place.
    That bed look really cool, I could sleep there.

    • “used the bed to terrorize my place” OMD my Mom thought that was sooo funny!!! C’mon over and sleep on it! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  23. My Tucker used to like the floor, I think he got too warm in a bed. It wasn’t til he was older that he appreciated a bed once in awhile.

    • Awwww Mom is hoping that I eventually will like a bed like your Tucker did! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  24. My hairy Slobbery sisters, Cinnamon and Bob have a big bed on the floor, well, actually it is 2 big dog beds. Cinnamon slleps on one side and Bob the other. Sometimes, if she is cold, Cinnamon gets upo on the bed with Mommy and Daddy. Bob, if she is too hot sleeps on the floor. She has a blanket on the floor beside Mommy that she likes to sleep on when we is watching TV. Cinnamon like to snooze on the sofa with me or Kozmo.

    • Hi Nellie! No surprise to me that none of you really care for the floor too much!! BOL! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  25. Leroy’s a couch sleeper and Sherman;s a floor sleeper.
    I bought Leroy a bed last year so he would stop sleeping on the couch and he peed on the dog bed and then went and jumped on the couch!

    • Hi Jen! that is interesting! OMD Mom had a laugh with the peeing in the dog bed and then jumping on the couch! BOL! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  26. Hey Dakota, Jet here. Hi Miss Caren.

    First of all, CONGRATS, what a wonderful gift to win. Dude… this mystery requires some postulating (VBP)… Sometimes during the hotter months I will sleep on the cool tile floor part of the night and part in bed with Mom. I relocate a few times and differently when my human sister is with us. (she goes between our house and Mr. Fred’s…) Ahhh… just thought of something… perhaps as one with a herding heritage, your instincts require that you sleep with your flock (which would be on the ground.) Just a thought….

    • Hi Jet! Thanks so much! Hmmm….I LIKE how you think! I think you might be on to something!!! “Sleeping with my flock” on the ground so that I can get up and attack if I hear something! Jet you are a GENIUS!!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  27. I bought my dog a bed once. The cat stole it and claimed it as his own. I don’t think my dog has slept in it once. My cat puts a good hurting on it, though. The dog sleeps on the rug.
