Dog Beds

Winter is a tough time of year for all dogs as they search for those little spots that are always warm and cosy. In many cases dogs would rather climb onto your sofa or even your bed to keep themselves warm on those extra cold nights. A Dogs Bed is an important piece of furniture in any dog owners household and you should not take it for granted that any old bed will do.

Shopping for the right dog bed, especially for one that will keep your dog warm during winter, is not that tough. In fact once you know a few things about dog beds youíll be on your way to being an expert!

Firstly you have to remember that the bed you buy your dog will serve as more than a cosy spot; it will also be your dogsí sanctuary, its own personal space.

So keeping this in mind think about the right size and shape of bed for your dog.

Some dogs develop bone and joint problems (larger ones usually in the hips) and providing them with ample comfort should be a priority. There are specially designed beds with cushions that provide this comfort. There is also an Orthopedic option for those with arthritis. These beds provide great support.

With advances in technology you can also buy temperature regulated beds that will provide your dog with a warm mattress during extreme weather conditions.

Having your dog lay down on a hard surface can cause much discomfort over time. Calluses and joint wear will most likely occur so a comfortable option for this particular problem is a hammock style bed. These beds are just off the ground.

Remember that when you select a dog bed you have to think about the positions in which your dog sleeps. My dog loves to stretch out so I made sure that his bed gives her plenty of room.

The bed you pick must also be easy to clean and durable. Many dogs like to chew away at their bed so make sure the bed is tough. Some fabrics are excellently durable and do not break.
