Deanna Walters Dog Crates, 2018-02-01 12:35:04. A good idea is also a crate bumper, which is very similar to a cot bumper. Puppies have an instinctive desire to keep their sleeping area clean. Using a crate takes advantage of this and helps your puppy learn to control his bladder between trips outside. He will have accidents, of course, but by using a dog crate as a bed and combining it with a regular toileting, feeding and play schedule, toilet training will be quicker and less stressful for everyone involved. Just remember never to use the crate as a form of punishment.

Soft dog crates, on the other hand, can typically be disassembled machinewashed. This is generally more convenient than handwashing, although one should keep in mind that fabric is more likely to stain as a result of dog waste than plastic or metal. On that note, aesthetics are one more reason many dog owners prefer soft dog crates. Wire cages have an institutional look that some find unappealing, and plastic models tend to lack style.
Petra Hines Dog Crates, 2018-02-04 15:01:32. It is best to begin crate training with dogs while they are puppies, but older dogs can be trained to go into crates as well. The best way to start is to set the crate up without any expectations of the dog actually going in. Let the dog check the crate out and get used to it. Once the dog is used to the crate, begin to put treats or toys inside to persuade the dog to go in. It is usually only a short time before dogs begin to go into the crates of their own volition. Once they start going in, begin closing the door for short periods of time, gradually increasing the time, and before you know it, your dog will be crate trained.
Thelma Townsend Dog Beds, 2018-01-25 18:36:22. Filler for dog beds is typically solid foam or stuffing. Poly foam is typically used to make stuffing for dog beds. Look for beds with high loft stuffing, as they will be less likely to get squashed or otherwise lose their shape and fluffiness. Stuffing is more suitable for a small dog than a large one. Solid foam beds are a better choice for larger dogs, and healthy older dogs. For a dog with serious back or hip problems, you should look into orthopedic foam dog beds. Be aware of the firmness or density of the foam.

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.

However, even if you are not inclined to pamper your dog, dog beds can improve your dogs quality of life in many ways. Dog beds have many practical functions, such as insulating your dog from the floor. This is especially nice during winter months, especially if your dog is old, fat, or arthritic. Dog beds also give dogs a private space. Dogs are pack animals, and youre the pack.
Marian Vargas Dog Beds, 2018-01-25 18:10:57. 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.
Fleurette Dog Beds, 2018-01-25 18:19:42. If your dogs bed is going to be in your living room or bedroom, you may want to select a bed that doesnt clash with your established color schemes or overall room design. There are several other options for your dog bed. Some are heated. Some can be monogrammed or embroidered with your dog s name. Others are waterproof. The best thing to do before going shopping is to make a list of everything you want for your dog s bed. Once you get to the store, you can then cut down the list until you find a bed that fits your budget.

You can choose from a huge variety of shapes and sizes with lowlevel therapeutic heat. Heated pet beds have thermostats that allow you to control the temperature. If you travel with your pet, some beds have optional AC power adapters allowing them to plug into your car. You can even get a pet bed with a removable heating source, allowing you to use the bed year round. Heated beds usually have removable covers, since washing is not always an option.

Kelley Weeks Dog Beds, 2018-01-25 18:44:03. It is very important that you consider not only the decor of the room where you wish to place the bed but also your dogs habits. A fancy doghouse style bed, which neatly hides your dogs bed away, isnt going to be all that useful if your dog doesnt like small, enclosed spaces. You dont want to spend a lot of money on pet beds for your dog only to have him ignore it. If you are buying for a puppy, make sure you understand how big the dog will eventually grow. You will either have to buy a large bed later, or just buy one at the start. If your puppy is a larger breed it may be a waste of money to buy a small bed when he is small, as they grow fast.
Latisha Kelley Dog Beds, 2018-01-25 18:41:03. 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.
