Frances Beck. Dog Beds. December 27th , 2017.
If your dog likes lying with its head up on a pillow, you may want one of these beds with raised sides. Think about how your dog usually sleeps. If he or she sleeps curled up in a circle, a round bed is probably a good fit. If your dog sleeps stretched out, you might want a longer bed. Here again youll want to take into account your dogs age. If you still have a puppy, youll want to account for growth.Be sure to check the tag before you buy your dog s bed. You want to be sure that at least the main pad can be removed and washed.
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.
Durability also matters. Does your dog tend to chew? If so there are beds designed to resist damage from chewhappy mutts. Is your dog an indoor dog or an outdoor dog? Outdoor dogs need beds that fit in their dog houses, whereas for indoor dogs you will likely have more flexibility. Outdoor dog beds need to be able to endure weather and moisture, even if they will be located in dog houses.
You can also get gelfilled mattresses although the memory foam is better as it conforms to the body. Most orthopedic dog beds are constructed from a wooden frame with the memory foam mattress inserted. Orthopedic Dog Beds are lower to the ground which reduces the injuries sustained from jumping up and down from a bed or couch. Because the memory foam is light weight, the whole bed is reasonably easy to move around as it is not too heavy. If you have a large dog, its best if they have a large dog bed of their own.
When you go to bed at night, if you go to sleep easily its probably because you have a space that feels safe and warm. So Its understandable when your small dog wants to enjoy the same warmth and relaxed feeling by being right next to you. While it may be very flattering that your dog likes to sleep on your bed, you may actually prefer him to have his own perfect spot so you both can enjoy a contented nights sleep. Thats where dog beds for small dogs come in. And this is very achievable with the beds that are designed with their needs in mind.
