Marian Vargas. Dog Beds. January 28th , 2018.
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.
This is a necessity in dealing both with dirt and with keeping your dogs bed free of fleas. You also want the material to be heavy enough to withstand a little chewing and clawing, especially if the bed is for a puppy. Durability is another thing to pay attention to. Some dog beds feature wooden supports or frames, and these beds may last longer than those that are completely made out of cloth. However, you want to make sure the padding in these beds is sufficient and that the wooden frame wont poke through or be uncomfortable.
If your dog sleeps with part of his body elevated, then a pillow top bed should be considered. 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.
Some models have detachable, chewresistant cords. Some even come with vibrating massage. You can also purchase a bed that both heats and cools allowing complete comfort. Be sure to check whether the bed you are considering is made for indoor or outdoor use. Smaller heated cushions and mats are very convenient and can be moved around the house, depending on your dogs current favorite nap zone. You might think of just using the old electric blanket off your bed, but thats not a good idea.
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.
