Phyllis Mcguire. Dog Beds. January 28th , 2018.
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.
Dog beds are a luxury for some dogs and a necessity for other dogs. The neat thing about dog beds is that they come in so many varieties that you can find one to fit any dog, and size, any décor or any location. The key to finding a good dog bed for your dog is understanding what is out there. Does your dog needs a dog bed that is elevated off of the floor, does your dog need a dog be that is extremely soft or possibly a bit firm? These are the types of questions you should be asking yourself before going shopping for a dog bed.
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.
Not all dogs are allowed in the house, even in winter, so a heated bed for kennels, garages or the porch can be a necessity in some climates. A heated bed can take some of the sting out of being in the dog house. Prolonged exposure to cold can lead to a variety of problems for your pet such as: cracked paws, infections, dehydration and in extreme cases even hypothermia. If your dog is shivering and cold this can weaken his immune system. If health issues werent enough, your dog will be just plain miserable.
Chances are these mini sofas are available in a fabric or pattern that matches your own sofa. Along those lines, some of these dog beds are styled to look like little human beds. Some even have headboards and footboards. Other designer beds are styled more like the rest of your furniture, with designer dog beds hidden away, as if they were miniature indoor doghouses, except disguised as end tables. Special Function Pet Beds Some dog beds are available which have advanced functions to increase your pets comfort. For example, heated dog beds are available.
