Sprawled out on the kitchen floor. Curled up in a discarded coat. Nestled into the back seat of your car. These are all places where your dog can sleep — and quite comfortably too. However, while your dog can sleep anywhere, that doesn’t necessarily mean that she should. As a pet owner, it is very important to provide your dog with a warm and comfortable bed of her own; a place she can retreat to at night and nap in throughout the day.
Cesarsway has all the information on just a few of the ways a dog bed can benefit both you and your dog.
A good dog bed will provide your pet with a soft, comfortable place to rest her joints and bones. This becomes increasingly important as dogs age.
Dog beds offer an important source of insulation during the winter and summer, acting as a protective layer between the cold floor or hot ground.
Hair and odor control
Dog beds can help keep your house clean (or at least cleaner) by keeping the hair and odor concentrated in a single area, while discouraging pets from curling up on the upholstery. Even better, quality dog beds are water-resistant and easy to clean.
Much like the rest of your family, your dog needs a space where she feels safe, protected, and relaxed. By providing your dog with her own bed, you can help your dog feel as though she has a valued place in your household.
How to choose a dog bed
Now that you know your dog needs his own bed, how do you pick the right one? To determine the best bed for your dog, you should consider the following factors:
It’s important to choose a bed that is big enough to support your dog’s body when she is stretched out. We suggest measuring your dog, and then picking a bed that is at least 5 inches longer and wider.
Just as you wouldn’t skimp when choosing your own bed, you should look for a bed made of durable, superior materials.
