A Perfect Bed for Your Pet Dog

Did you ever find your dog circling round and round or pawing at his sleeping place before he lies down? He does so to flatten the area to make it more comfortable to sleep in. Dogs spend about 14 hours a day sleeping, therefore a cozy, nice-sized bed is an absolute necessity. A good dog bed is not only a napping spot for your dog, but it is also an excellent place to banish him when he is misbehaving.

Dog beds can be as bespoke as your own bed and bedding. Just slacken your imagination and you will find dog beds in many colors, sizes, shapes and materials. They can be chosen according to the size of your dog or color and dÚcor of your interiors. Here are some tips to help you buy a perfect bed for your dog.

First, you should decide where in your home would you place the dog bed. The placement typically, depends on your dog’s habits, he may enjoy sleeping at the foot or side of your bed or he may like to sleep in the family room, and the actual amount of space you have for the bed.

The next important consideration is the size of the dog bed. Choose one that will fit him as an adult. If you have a Doberman, you will require a large, heavily padded bed, but for a Chihuahua, a small, thinly padded bed will just be fine. An ideal bed will be one that will fit in his crate or doghouse. It will make his “home” more comfortable.

The

bed should provide maximum comfort to your pooch. Cedar filled dog bed is considered to be idyllic because cedar repels fleas, which in long run will make your dog less itchy as well as less stressed. Make sure that the cedar bed is refillable. The bedcover should be removable and washable. Ensure the bed is made of sturdy materials that can’t be ripped or consumed by your dog.

If your pet is old, arthritic or ill, go for a heated dog bed. Thermo-beds are not only easy to wash, as they have poly fiber filling, they also maintain the warmth that matches the body temperature and hence, they can be used all the year round.

Nowadays, designer dog beds such as Violet Ribbon Dog Bed have become very popular. Select one that matches with the hues of your home. Big cushions, fluffy pillows, rugs and cuddlers are essential accessories that will keep your dog comfortable.

Once you have bought the dog bed, take it home and have your dog stretch out in it on his side. If your dog hangs off the side of the bed even just a bit, return the bed immediately for a bigger size.
