    This could be a late-game obtainable item.  Similar to how Horse Armor and Saddles can't be crafted neither can the Dog Bed.  You can only find them every once in a while in the chests of The End, or perhaps a new dimension/dungeon.

    What the Dog Bed would give is the ability to attach it to a pet dog of your choice.  If that dog dies, they will re-spawn where the bed is.  If they have no bed then they won't re-spawn.

    If you call it a "Pet Bed" this an include cats as well.  A birdcage could be for your pet birds.  These late game "spawn" items would be great for those wanting to hold on to their pets.

    Interesting concept, maybe we could extend this functionality to cats as well? And maybe some special perches for parrots, and some kind of hay bed for horses or llamas...

    I've heard about this idea in AntVenom's video and I rly like it, but I'd like to add more to this idea, both in its concept, functionality and mechanic.

    My idea is: make a Dog House, something that would be 1x1x1.5 (1 and a half block tall). Imo this would be a much better fitting concept than a "bed".

    How it'd work: you'd take a single dog on a lead and then right click the dog house. This would link that dog to that specific house. This would only work if you don't have anything else on a lead (so if you have 2 dogs it won't work, if you have one dog and another animal it won't work). You guys could choose if the lead would or wouldn't be consumed when doing this, 

    How to identify: once the dog house has been linked to a dog, it'll raise a small flag (maybe something like those classic mailbox flags?) that's the same color as the dog's colar, meanwhile the dog's colar could have some detail added on it to point out that it's already linked to a dog house.

    Dog respawning mechanics: I have a few different ideas to handle how the dog would respawn, since if left unchecked it could become broken pretty easily. Here are the ideas I came up with:

    > The dogs respawns instantly, but they respawn sitting, and they'll only come after you again if you right click then (aka they won't help you even if you are in danger unless u've right clicked them)

    > Upon death, they'll revive after a cooldown time, which could be shorter or longer depending on the game difficulty, but once they're respawned they can teleport back to you regardless of where you are.

    > After dying they reappear inside the dog house, but they'll only leave the dog house once you've feed X pieces of meat to them (breaking the dog house while they're inside it would make the dog be gone forever)

    I like this one because your dog cant die just like you, and I'm tired of trying to save my dog whenever he gets hurt and to feed him.

    Maybe there should be a certain amount of time you dog could respawn (3-5)

    Like the concept but extend it for cats and don't make them respawn just recover health without having to give them food. It should be just out of wool and wood.

    Pet beds would probably need a respawn delay, maybe around 5 minutes or so, because dogs can teleport if they're set to follow you. Teleporting paired with instant respawn would be a bit overpowered, because your dog could instantly teleport to you after respawn.

    That is an awesome idea! This should be a thing! 

    It sounds adorable!

    And it's good because then I wouldn't need a grave yard for all my lost wolves

    In order for dog beds not to be op and to tie in new mechanics you would need to attach to a dog bed a totem of undying. So for the dog bed you’d need wool, wood planks and a bone. The bone is there to attract the dog, the wool is there to make it comfortable and wood planks for structure. When the dog bed has been completed you’re dog will sleep in it at night. If you attach a totem of undying your dog will respawn there after death. However the totem will take damage. After your dog died 3 times the totem will be destroyed and a new one is needed.

    I’ve always wanted dog beds to be implemented into the game! Another feature that I feel would be amazing for this is that if a wolf had a baby, the baby could cuddle up in the same bed as it’s parents. :)

    Pet`s bad is a item 1 block size, which you can place on the ground.

    When you activate it, your pet`s AI will perceive as a player instead of you.

    So pet will start to hang around it within fixed radius as it normally do around player.

     

    Why do we need this?

    Currently adopted pet can act in two scenarios: follow the player, and to seat.

     

    But what if I want it to hag around my base, as normal cat or dog would do?

    I don`t want it to follow me, instead I want to come back from far and exhausting trip and to find my cat walking around my farm.

    I don`t want it to seat and waiting me at one place. I want it to act more like alive creature emotionally tied to human home.

     

    So you just place it in the center of your base and activate it.

     

    It would be great if cat and dog could play with each other, chasing each other, and do all that cute stuff.

    Dog could start barking when player approaches the base (enters certain radius after being absent inside that radius more then a day) and run towards player waiving its tail.

     

    It will bring more atmosphere to Minecraft. Your will appreciate yor comfort shelter even more. That precious felling that someone waiting you at home...

    i like the idea of dog and animal beds. could have additional functionality like pet commands, like stop them from teleporting etc, even introduce petting. i like the idea of having pets be able to respawn but it would reduce the emotional weight of losing them, it could be a gamerule that players can set

    In hardcore mode, though, the dog dies forever.

    Idk how that would work in a server, maybe it would give more lag. But I sure would love to have my pets spawning again only and if I build this specif bed for them. Sometimes I'm walking around and they just disappear. I'm sure they got killed somehow but sometimes I didn't even see it. 

    Pets in minecraft, might sound a bit stupid but for me they are like my old tamagotchis. I really like them and I kinda care for them like I would care for my real pets. It's some kind of instinct to care for those guys.

    Much like the new anchor item, dog beds need refills. The bed has 4 lets just call them heart. When the dog dies the bed looses one heart.  When the dog dies and the bed has no more hearts, the bed will break. The bed gains a heart again by adding milk to it. Add four times milk and it is full again. 

    Fun idea the bed is actually a mini pool made out of wool with milk inside and dogs sleep in it. 

     

    Pros of this idea: 

    - milk becomes more useful

    - The refills make beds not to op

    - milk and wool are already in the game

     

     

    (Got inspired by mrcrayfish i guess)

    me parece una buena idea aunque la opcion de que regenere deberia ser mas complicado para supervivencia tal vez encantando la cama podria ser posible que regenerara por un limite de veces
