Wendy Levine. Dog Beds. January 26th , 2018.
Beds in this category often have posh names or are made with unique materials and definitely have designer styling. If you have a pooch that leans toward a stylish bed, you may also be the type of owner that likes your pets furnishings to fit in with your taste. Finding dog beds for small dogs that not only let your pet sleep like a baby, but also compliment your pets personality plus your homes color scheme and decor, can be a fun challenge especially if you dont want to have to hide his bed when companys coming. Happily, these days it can be a win, win situation with the many choices available.
A heated dog bed in conjunction with the right diet, a good exercise program and proper medical attention will optimize your dogs health. As with any dog bed purchase, you need to take into consideration your dogs needs, as well as their particular sleeping habits. Make sure the size and shape fit your dogs body type and sleeping positions. Does he curl up or stretch out, is he a fitful sleeper? Do you have a big dog in need of good support, then a firmer pad would be worth a look.
Firmness indicates how hard or soft the bed is, whereas density is the springiness. Better quality foam beds tend to have higher firmness and density. Lastly, make sure you choose a bed that is easy to clean. Dogs arent selfcleaning pets the way that cats are, and dog beds get dirty. Traditionally, dogs were not provided beds, and were lucky to sleep on a pile of rags, if they were allowed in the house at all. In recent years. However, lately the trend has been for people to pamper their pets. Not only do their dogs have beds, they have deluxe, stylish designer dog beds to go with their chic haircuts.
For example, some companies have designed pet beds that are covered with materials that look and feel like animal fur or, are even shaped like an animal with a nesting spot in the middle. Most dogs will feel very drawn to this type of bed, because if you think about it dogs in the wild were used to snuggling up with their fur covered pack family for warmth, companionship and the feeling of security. Small dogs and puppies will like the feeling a fauxfurtype bed gives them. But even some bigger pooches will respond to the call of the wild.
Not all dogs are allowed in the house, even in winter, so a heated bed for kennels, garages or the porch can be a necessity in some climates. A heated bed can take some of the sting out of being in the dog house. Prolonged exposure to cold can lead to a variety of problems for your pet such as: cracked paws, infections, dehydration and in extreme cases even hypothermia. If your dog is shivering and cold this can weaken his immune system. If health issues werent enough, your dog will be just plain miserable.
