Choosing The Right Bed For Your Dog Is Super Important. I Never Knew There Were SO Many Things To Think About!Justin Chale
While you may find your dog sleeping in some very odd places, did you know that an uncomfortable bed could have the same impact on your dog as it would on you? For most of us, buying a mattress is one of the most important purchases we make and we usually don't hold back when it comes to how much we are willing to spend. So think about it, what are some things that you would look for when you are searching for that PAWFECT mattress? What are qualities that you would want in your bed? Dog's sleep a heck of a lot more than we do, so your dog is going to be spending a lot of time with their bed.
How To Choose The Pawfect Dog Bed!
#1– You should consider the size of bed that your dog would want. Even though your dog can't speak up, I highly doubt that you want to be in a bed that's too small for you! Make sure that you're looking for a bed that's proportionate to your dogs size. I mean, you wouldn't want to be stuck in a twin when you really need a queen, would you?
#2– Consider your dogs age! Don't you remember when you were younger and could probably sleep anywhere? Well, the same goes for a dog. The younger their bones and joints are, the more adaptable they are to sleeping conditions. As they get older, like you, they will probably need a bed with more support. So, even though your dog can't really tell you their preference on whether they'd like a firm or soft bed, try to take a walk on their leash and consider the options!
#3– Finally, make sure to take a look at your dogs habits. Do they spend a lot of time in their bed, or are they in bed with you? For dogs that don't spend a lot of time in their bed, a Bed-Mat will usually do. A Mat will provide just enough support to be comfortable and is also GREAT for travel! For dogs that spend a lot of time in their bed, you might want to look at a foam or plush bed that provides a lot of support. These are optimal for long periods of rest and relaxation!
