Dogs love sleeping on couches, but finding an affordable dog bed will keep your pooch happy and your furniture clean.

Affordable dog beds are difficult to find, plus they don’t often provide much support for arthritic, geriatric dogs. My Labrador Retriever sleeps on a standard crib mattress and he loves it. Old crib mattresses are readily available at garage sales and thrift stores.

I paid $10 for the mattress and 50 cents for the crib sheets. The mattress also has a plastic cover that’s easy to wipe clean, and stripping and washing the sheets takes hardly any time.
