Must-Haves for Dog Bedtime
Dog Bed
First thing's first, your dog needs a comfortable and supportive bed to sleep on. An orthopedic, memory foam dog bed relieves pressure points, so your dog is less likely to wake up or be unable to settle due to discomfort.

Dog Sweater
Dogs who move around too much to stay covered by a blanket might prefer to wear a sweater to remain warm and settled.

Dog Chew Toy
It's fairly common for dogs to need some sort of stimulation to help them settle at night, like a child with a pacifier. A few minutes with a chew toy may put your dog in a better frame of mind to get to sleep.

Nice To Haves for Dog Bedtime
Dog Crate
Some dogs, especially puppies and young dogs, sleep safely and deeply in a crate at night. Even older dogs may prefer to settle in an open crate because it gives them a den to bed down in.

Dog Calming Treats
A handful of calming treats before bedtime can help your dog relax, a bit like a cup of chamomile tea helps humans, and may fill up her stomach just enough so she’ll sleep a little later.

Dog Ball Toy
If your dog isn't sleeping well, it could be due to a lack of activity. When your companion gets exercise during the day, a restful night's sleep is more likely. A long game of fetch might use up some of that boundless energy.

Dog Gate
If your dog spends the night roaming the house, a pet gate could encourage sleep. By restricting your dog to one room or one part of the house, he won’t be able to go on patrol.

Dog Activity Tracker
With the assistance of an activity tracker, you might be able to adjust your dog's exercise routine. Extra exercise during the day, where warranted, will tire out your dog for a better sleep.
