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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Remember dogs originally were raised in dens that resemble caves you may have seen some abandoned animal dens, often built on the side of a hill. Do you see the connection here? Also, the hood on these cavetype beds can be pulled down over the pet for an even greater feeling of security. Likewise, its easy to image in the past, that the mother of a pack would guard her cave by pulling some brush across the entrance.

Orthopedic dog beds, for example, are designed to help ease your dogs joint pain. While you may not want (or need) to invest in a special bed if your dogs injury is minor, if you have an older dog or a permanently disabled one, you might think about it. Color is a minor consideration when thinking about which of the many dog beds to purchase, but it is something you may want to consider.

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.

It really looks cozy. Not All Dogs Have The Same Needs If youre at all familiar with small dogs, you probably know some that have very bold and even bossy personalities. These little dogs often have big egos for their size and like to be pampered. Finding the right bed to make them really happy is as simple as choosing one that them feel really special in other words, like a top dog.

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.

If your selection is wrong and your buddy is not happy with the bed you selected, then no amount of warmth is going to make it more inviting. Nothing is worse than spending money on a bed for your beloved pet, only to find out he would rather sleep on the floor that on what you thought he would like. Listen to your dog by watching his habits and you will make a better decision for both of you.
