Staci Brock Dog Beds, 2018-01-25 17:45:41. You may feel that a heated dog bed falls into the category of the over pampered pooch, but they have many therapeutic purposes as well. Dogs have hair, (well most of them do), and so most people mistakenly believe that is all they need for insulation even if their surroundings are cool. Mother Nature provided pretty well for most dogs by equipping them for their environment. But sometimes this natural protective coat is not enough. Dogs are on the move globally and living in climates not suited to their nature.

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.

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.
Mitzi Phillips Dog Beds, 2017-11-13 18:35:23. There are many different types of dog beds out there, and picking the right one for your dog can be quite difficult. You don t want to buy an expensive bed only to watch it go unused as your dog sleeps on the couch or (even worse?) on your bed. This guide will help you get an idea of what the different dog beds offer and which might be best for your furry friend. The first thing to consider is size. You dont want to get one of the smaller dog beds for your puppy, especially if its a large breed. You dont want your dog to quickly outgrow its new bed, so be sure to factor in growth before purchasing a new sleeping space for your puppy.
Lindsay Moody Dog Beds, 2017-11-21 18:49:00. Standard dog beds are usually sorted into the following types: mattresses, balls, or nests. The style of bed that suits your dog depends on his or her sleeping habits. If your dog tends to curl up when sleeping, nests or balls are the best style of dog beds to choose from. Nests provide extra insulation, good for dogs sleeping outdoors. Mattress style dog beds are more comfortable for dogs that tend to sprawl when sleeping. They give your dog room to move around, stretch, or sleep in whatever position suits them at any particular moment.

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.
Deanna Walters Dog Beds, 2017-11-10 18:27:01. 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 those of us that live in colder areas where the floor of our house stays a bit chilly all year a nice soft dog bed can keep the dog off of the cold floor and keep their body at a comfortable temperature. Arthritic dogs tend to benefit from dog beds the most in this scenario. Does your dog get on the furniture? Maybe they do this to be comfortable? I think so. If your dog gets on the furniture a nice cozy dog bed of their own may very well curb their desire to get on your stuff. The dog bed will become their home where they feel safe and enjoy spending time.
Evangelina Howell Dog Beds, 2017-11-14 18:39:39. Size matters when choosing dog beds. It should be big enough to fit your dog comfortably. This may seem obvious, but dont shop for beds without actually measuring your dog. Leave room for your dog to grow if your dog is young, and leave room for your dog to get fatter if he is older. Also, dog beds should leave dogs with enough room to turn and move around in them.
Liza Cobb Dog Beds, 2017-11-22 18:50:39. 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.
Kelley Weeks Dog Beds, 2017-11-09 18:25:00. The price varies primarily according to the size of the bed (which in turn varies according to the size of the dog). As soon as you add a designers name to the exact same bed, the price will at least double. Form Factors of Designer Dog Beds Designer dog beds arent typically just the same old beds with a designers name on them, however. Even when these dog beds follow the same form factor as nondesigner beds, the designer who puts his or her name on the label has thought out the look and style. They come in just about any style, shape or size you can imagine.
