If you’re like many pet owners, your dog needs a comfortable place to rest when the days get cold, or the temperatures rise. So you might wonder what kinds of dog beds you should purchase for your best friend. Luckily, there are many options available to you. With a little research, you can find a calming dog bed that will satisfy all your pet’s needs. Here are some of your best options:
Classic Dog Beds
These dog beds come in just about any size you can imagine. From ornate wooden frames to high-end materials and durable leather, classic dog beds come in all shapes and sizes. You can choose from metal, wood, plush or memory foam to ensure that you provide your pet with a comfortable bed that he can enjoy for years. Of course, the larger sizes will take longer to warm up properly and need to be taken out of the sun before you’re ready to use them, but they are a wonderful place for your pooch to snuggle up and feel safe.
Washable Dog Beds
These dog beds come in two different types, washable or non-washable. Non-washable means that they can be washed in the washing machine, which is often the best option for most people. Non-washable beds do not offer as much support as washable ones, but they are often less expensive and take less time to dry out than the washable variety. Again, you will want to read up on reviews of these beds to know which one will suit your pooch best.
Faux Dog Beds
A new option for calming dog bed buyers is faux leather. These are very similar to the real thing, except they are easier to clean. They are also somewhat more affordable than leather. A faux dog bed typically has a little extra padding on the sides and can be purchased in many different colours, styles, and materials. If you want your dog to have a comfy place to sleep, then this may be the best dog bed for you.
Small Dog Beds
Just as there are different sized dogs, so are there different sized beds. Many small dogs need the extra comfort that only a dog bed can provide, but plenty of options are available for small dogs. These beds are typically only a few inches thick and can be washed in the washing machine, making them incredibly easy to care for. When picking out a small dog bed, it’s important to pay attention to the depth of the padding. Also, since small dogs typically sleep much more than large dogs, you’ll want something that provides adequate support to keep them from jumping out of bed.
Dog Orthopedic Foam Dog Beds
Finally, there are several different types of orthopedic foam dog beds. Memory foam is one of the most comfortable yet orthopedically difficult materials. However, because of its density, it requires more pressure to set in than other types of foam. Because of this, many people prefer the calming dog bed to any others simply because of the superior support it offers. In addition, memory foam can conform to the shape of your dog’s body, which allows for additional support and reduces the risk of sagging, which can significantly decrease your dog’s comfort.
