Choosing The Right Beds For Dogs

Posted June 22nd, 2010 by gemainz

Have you ever had the unfortunate experience of going to sleep in a uncomfortable bed, to wake up in the morning hurting all over your body?  If you haven’t, your lucky.  If you have, you already know it’s not fun.  If your dog was able to verbalise, what would they have to say more or less about the bed? I speculate it would depend on whether it’s an old pillow lying in a box like our dog had when we were younger, or if he has a comfortable, supporting bed like DogPedic beds for dogs.

Most times it is thought that because dogs are dogs, or because they’re tiny and light, there is no need for a quality bed.  Owners with large dogs may give it more thought, but even then will find something round the house that will work.

Here’s the thing, Hip dysplasia, which is an abnormal establishment of the hip socket, is usually common in dogs.  It is one of the most researched issues in dogs because it is the leading cause of arthritis in dogs, causing a lot of pain and discomfort.  Specific breeds and large dogs are more apt to get it.

With this knowledge, selecting a bed for your dog should be granted some thought and consideration.  If your dog is young, a Dog Pedic bed will give support to their articulations right from the beginning.  For dogs that are older and may already be experiencing some joint pain, having a bed that conforms around their body relieves pressure from the joints allowing for a good night’s sleep.  Beds for dogs falling into this category are frequently called orthopedic dog beds.

Memory foam beds for dogs have become common today for people just as much as for pets, because they mold themselves to the body to offer complete support, alleviating any pressure points.  This is the same when the foam is used in creating beds for pets.  The DogPedic beds for dogs will support dogs weighing up to as much as 150 pounds.

One other thing you may want to consider in addition to the quality of the bed you are providing for your dog, is your dog’s personal preference for sleeping.  If your dog likes to curl up and be snuggled, you might need to put their cushion in a box or cage or something similar like that, that they can curl up next to.  If your dog prefers to be covered up, find them a comfy blanket to go on their bed.  Or if he likes to stretch out, be sure you get one large enough to allow for that.

If you think about how long your dog sleeps during the day, you must remember that having a comfortable bed for your dog is an investment in their health, and one that really is low-priced. So, don’t do like some owners do, but do your dog a favor, get rid of the old pillow and get a DogPedic Beds For Dogs – the Mercedes of dog beds.
