Grammar Help • Re: past simple vs past perfect

Grammar Help • past simple vs past perfect

I was taught that the following sentence was acceptable:
"He had dinner before he went to bed." Past-perfect tense is not required.

However, this site, the ENGLISH PAGE states otherwise with this example:

- She had never seen a bear before she moved to Alaska. Correct

Please explain. Thanks.
