Dog Beds. Wednesday , January 24th , 2018 - 11:29:19 AM
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.
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.
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.
