Kelley Weeks. Dog Beds. January 18th , 2018.
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.
Heated orthopedic dog beds are great for older dogs or dogs with Arthritis or Hip Dysplasia providing warmth in the colder months, the orthopedic dog beds are made from memory foam and the warmth from a heated dog bed can loosen the muscles and make them more comfortable. You can also get heated mats for outside use, pillow beds with an internal heater and oval beds for smaller breeds. There is also the thermowave microwavable dog bed warmer that is placed in the microwave and then into your dogs bed and will stay warm up to twelve hours.
If you think that dog beds for small dogs are different that any other beds, you may well be right. Many little pups are pretty opinionated about what they like, which is why we decided to dig a little deeper to see things from their point of view. So here are some thoughts to mull over. Pets like to sleep with their masters thats a given. And, while you may not mind sharing your bed with a small dog, sometimes you just need to get a good nights sleep without having to shift positions to accommodate your pet.
You may feel that a heated dog bed falls into the category of the over pampered pooch, but they have many therapeutic purposes as well. Dogs have hair, (well most of them do), and so most people mistakenly believe that is all they need for insulation even if their surroundings are cool. Mother Nature provided pretty well for most dogs by equipping them for their environment. But sometimes this natural protective coat is not enough. Dogs are on the move globally and living in climates not suited to their nature.
Even with a full grown animal, be sure to get a bed big enough that he or she will have room to stretch and wont feel too crowded. If you get a dog bed thats a bit on the small side, your dog may not use it. Also take note of the height of dog beds. You dont want to select a bed that is too high for your small dog. A raised bed, however, may help keep your dog warm if your house is drafty. Shape is another consideration. Dog beds come in several different shapes and looks. There are round ones, square ones, beds that look like little couches, dog beds with no sides, and beds that have raised sides all the way around.
