Traveling with your pup can be the cherry on top of your next camping or travel adventure. Whether it’s a weekend getaway or a cross-country road trip, having your four-legged friend by your side adds an extra layer of joy to the trip. While we are busy planning for all the trails to hike and rivers to swim in with our dogs this season, their comfort can often get overlooked. That's where the HEST dog bed comes into play. In this blog post, we'll explore why every dog owner should consider traveling with the most functional and comfortable dog bed out there.

5 Reasons Why Dog Owners Should Travel with the HEST Dog Bed:



One of the best parts about the HEST dog bed? You can roll it up and store it in the back of your rig for when you’re on the move. Once you get to your location, you can easily unclip the compression harness around the bed and it’s ready for your pup to relax on. When rolled up, the dog bed has an easy carry handle, making it seamless to maneuver while you’re on the go. So no matter if you’re camping, going to the office, or staying at an AirBnb, your dog can always have a familiar place to rest their head. Here’s a HEST pro tip: If you want to give your dog that added layer of luxury, we like to set up the dog bed in the car, so that even on long road trips, they can stay comfortable in the backseat or trunk.


There's a size for any Pup 

No matter how big or small your dog is, we take their comfort seriously, and that’s why we made a versatile dog bed that comes in three different sizes. No matter if you’ve got a small dog that loves a big bed or a big dog that needs maximum support and comfort—you can choose from small, medium, or large size options. This way your dog’s tail is still wagging when you get back from your day out traveling or in nature.


Good on their body

Just like all of our mattresses for humans, the HEST dog bed is made with temperature resilient foam. After all, dogs need maximum comfort too! The top layer of the mattress will contour to their body while the bottom layer will relieve any pressure points and provide the support your dog needs. After a long day of adventuring, a comfy and supportive place to lay down is exactly what you and your pup want. An added bonus, though? The temperature resilient foam won’t harden when the temperature goes down at night, so if you’re camping, your dog will stay just as comfortable, even when the temps fluctuates.


Dirt and water resistant

If you’re out for the weekend camping, it’s safe to assume that your four-legged friend will roll around in the dirt—or even some mud. Luckily, the HEST dog bed has multiple features to help you and your dog not worry about ruining their bed after one trip. The waterproof liner will protect the memory foam from any damage if your dog takes a dip in the river by your campsite. The bed is wrapped in a protective liner and the bottom of the bed is covered in a waterproof fabric, so even if the ground is soggy after a storm, you can still lay the the bed out without it getting soaked through.


Easy to clean

We all know the feeling of coming back from a long road trip and your car is covered in sand or dirt—and that feeling might be elevated for your dog’s stuff. The HEST dog bed is made with dirt and water resistant materials so you can brush off any mess that your dog brings back from your adventures, so you hopefully don’t track it into your car. But, it doesn't end there. Once you get home, you’ll be able to remove the cover and throw it in the washer for a deeper clean without the hassle of hand scrubbing.
