Phyllis Mcguire. Dog Beds. January 22nd , 2018.
Once again memory foam beds are the best option, they have a higher price tag but last a lot longer than the cheaper dog beds and they are great for relieving aches and pains. Different material designs are also available so you should be able to find one that fits in with your decor so they can look like part of the furniture rather than a sloppy old mattress or sofa. Covers can also be taken off for ease of washing. Specialised dog beds are also needed for small dogs. Dachshunds and other breeds with long backs are frequently troubled by back problems, usually caused by jumping therefore a dog bed all of their own, close to the floor is essential.
If you think that dog beds for small dogs are different that any other beds, you may well be right. Many little pups are pretty opinionated about what they like, which is why we decided to dig a little deeper to see things from their point of view. So here are some thoughts to mull over. Pets like to sleep with their masters thats a given. And, while you may not mind sharing your bed with a small dog, sometimes you just need to get a good nights sleep without having to shift positions to accommodate your pet.
Even with a full grown animal, be sure to get a bed big enough that he or she will have room to stretch and wont feel too crowded. If you get a dog bed thats a bit on the small side, your dog may not use it. Also take note of the height of dog beds. You dont want to select a bed that is too high for your small dog. A raised bed, however, may help keep your dog warm if your house is drafty. Shape is another consideration. Dog beds come in several different shapes and looks. There are round ones, square ones, beds that look like little couches, dog beds with no sides, and beds that have raised sides all the way around.
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.
You need to check how comfortable the heated dog bed is, the last thing your dog wants is to be able to feel the heating materials through the mattress. The mattress stills needs to be of a hardy material with a good, solid foam memory foam is the best. You will need to look out for the cord, look for a steelwrapped cord or simply cover it with some hose or conduit just in case your dog is a chewer. Look out for a heated dog bed with a removable cover for ease of washing, preferably it will be machine washable.
