A heated dog bed in conjunction with the right diet, a good exercise program and proper medical attention will optimize your dogs health. As with any dog bed purchase, you need to take into consideration your dogs needs, as well as their particular sleeping habits. Make sure the size and shape fit your dogs body type and sleeping positions. Does he curl up or stretch out, is he a fitful sleeper? Do you have a big dog in need of good support, then a firmer pad would be worth a look.
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.
Measure your dog while sleeping. If your dog curls up, measure your curled up dog at his or her widest point. Also measure your dog from the top of his or her head to the point where the tail meets the buttocks. Add 15 cm to that and you will know the minimum size you need to think about when considering beds. If your dog tends to stretch out when sleeping, add another 25 cm to that.
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.
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.
