Liza Cobb. Dog Beds. January 27th , 2018.
If your dog sleeps with part of his body elevated, then a pillow top bed should be considered. If your selection is wrong and your buddy is not happy with the bed you selected, then no amount of warmth is going to make it more inviting. Nothing is worse than spending money on a bed for your beloved pet, only to find out he would rather sleep on the floor that on what you thought he would like. Listen to your dog by watching his habits and you will make a better decision for both of you.
These heated dog beds are ideal for older or arthritic dogs. Heated dog beds may not be the ideal pet beds in warmer climates. In hot climates, dog beds are available with cooling pads. Things to Consider When Shopping for Designer Dog Beds Different breeds of dogs have different body types, build and sleeping habits. The type of bed you choose for your dog should depend on not only your dogs body type but also your dogs habits. If your dog chews things, choose a bed that is sturdy and chew proof.
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.
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.
