Cost is another thing to think about when searching for a dog bed. One of the custom dog beds on the market can get up into the high dollar amount and cost way more than you care to spend. The great thing is that there are many wonderful and affordable dog bed on the market. What is the benefit to a dog bed? Well dog beds can help cushion the bones and the joints of you favorite dog. Older dogs, overweight dogs and dogs that have bone or joint issues benefit drastically from a good dog bed. Believe it or not there are orthopedic dog beds out there and that may be the best one for your 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.
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.
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.
Some models have detachable, chewresistant cords. Some even come with vibrating massage. You can also purchase a bed that both heats and cools allowing complete comfort. Be sure to check whether the bed you are considering is made for indoor or outdoor use. Smaller heated cushions and mats are very convenient and can be moved around the house, depending on your dogs current favorite nap zone. You might think of just using the old electric blanket off your bed, but thats not a good idea.
