There are many reasons your dog may benefit from a heated bed, besides just living in a colder climate. Perhaps your dog suffers from medical conditions due to age or illness. A heated orthopedic bed is ideal for older dogs with arthritis or joint issues and can even increase their mobility. Dogs recovering from recent surgery or in a distressed state can benefit from use of a heated bed. Puppies recently weaned and removed from the comfort and warmth of their mother do well transitioning with the help of a heated bed.
This is a necessity in dealing both with dirt and with keeping your dogs bed free of fleas. You also want the material to be heavy enough to withstand a little chewing and clawing, especially if the bed is for a puppy. Durability is another thing to pay attention to. Some dog beds feature wooden supports or frames, and these beds may last longer than those that are completely made out of cloth. However, you want to make sure the padding in these beds is sufficient and that the wooden frame wont poke through or be uncomfortable.
For those of us that live in colder areas where the floor of our house stays a bit chilly all year a nice soft dog bed can keep the dog off of the cold floor and keep their body at a comfortable temperature. Arthritic dogs tend to benefit from dog beds the most in this scenario. Does your dog get on the furniture? Maybe they do this to be comfortable? I think so. If your dog gets on the furniture a nice cozy dog bed of their own may very well curb their desire to get on your stuff. The dog bed will become their home where they feel safe and enjoy spending time.
The cover also needs to be of a durable material to keep any clawing or biting in check. Waterproof dog beds are also available, they have a tough polyester cover which will keep out moisture much the same as your outdoor furniture. After a bath, getting home from the beach after a swim or getting stuck in the rain during a walk, youll be thankful for having a waterproof dog bed. We all want the best for our dogs, we give them the best food, toys and veterinary care but sometimes neglect the basics. A good dog bed is a necessity and may even prolong your best friends life.
There are many different types of dog beds out there, and picking the right one for your dog can be quite difficult. You don t want to buy an expensive bed only to watch it go unused as your dog sleeps on the couch or (even worse?) on your bed. This guide will help you get an idea of what the different dog beds offer and which might be best for your furry friend. The first thing to consider is size. You dont want to get one of the smaller dog beds for your puppy, especially if its a large breed. You dont want your dog to quickly outgrow its new bed, so be sure to factor in growth before purchasing a new sleeping space for your puppy.
