Thelma Townsend. Dog Beds. January 22nd , 2018.
Another type of bed that little dogs seem to like, are ones shaped like caves. These are quite novel beds which are similar in appearance to a den. 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.
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.
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.
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.
Some people pamper their pets, where others wouldnt consider that their dog would have the need for a bed. 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.
