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.
Theres one other similar nesting type of bed that surrounds a dog for a cozy nights sleep and then can be flattened out for casual daytime snoozes. It really looks cozy. Not All Dogs Have The Same Needs If youre at all familiar with small dogs, you probably know some that have very bold and even bossy personalities. These little dogs often have big egos for their size and like to be pampered. Finding the right bed to make them really happy is as simple as choosing one that them feel really special in other words, like a top dog.
The price varies primarily according to the size of the bed (which in turn varies according to the size of the dog). As soon as you add a designers name to the exact same bed, the price will at least double. Form Factors of Designer Dog Beds Designer dog beds arent typically just the same old beds with a designers name on them, however. Even when these dog beds follow the same form factor as nondesigner beds, the designer who puts his or her name on the label has thought out the look and style. They come in just about any style, shape or size you can imagine.
Human electric blankets exceed the levels of what is considered safe for your dog. As with any electrical product, you need to be safety conscious by being on the look out for frayed wires and keep them away from pooled water. If your dog likes to chew, you can purchase a cord protector to prevent damage to the cord. Most dogs will do fine without a heated bed, but there are many who would benefit, so assess your dogs bedding and health issues and see if a heated bed would better suit the needs of your dog.
Filler for dog beds is typically solid foam or stuffing. Poly foam is typically used to make stuffing for dog beds. Look for beds with high loft stuffing, as they will be less likely to get squashed or otherwise lose their shape and fluffiness. Stuffing is more suitable for a small dog than a large one. Solid foam beds are a better choice for larger dogs, and healthy older dogs. For a dog with serious back or hip problems, you should look into orthopedic foam dog beds. Be aware of the firmness or density of the foam.
