Many dog owners love seeing their furry little friends happy. If you have a dog, your heart is bound to burst when you watch him or her as they play, sniffle, explore or waggle their tales in a joyful dance. However, this won’t be possible unless your animal is well-rested and has all the much-needed downtime it needs to rest and recuperate its energy in a warm and comfortable environment. Because of this, it’s very important that dog owners put time and careful consideration into their pets’ beds.
Finding the right dog bed isn’t easy (and don’t listen to anyone who tells you otherwise). With so many options on the market, this can be quite a scavenger hunt. And not in a fun way. However, if you go about this short in the right way, you’ll be able to pinpoint the right choice with no trouble at all.
Below, we are going to help you choose a dog bed for your furry little friend by outlining a few things that you should think about when doing so. These tips will be sure to help you look past all the countless options available and narrow down on the perfect choice for your pet. So let’s get started…
There are quite a few different types of dog beds available for your pet. However, not all of these will work well for your pet. As such, factoring in your pet’s size, as well as its preferences in terms of sleeping position, will be sure to help you find the right option. We’re going to explore this a little more below…
The general rule of thumb is that you should match your dog’s bed size to their size, and it’s not very difficult to determine why. For bigger animals, it kinds of goes without saying that they’ll need more space to really sprawl their bodies out and rest in comfort. As such, prioritising a larger-sized dog bed would probably be a good idea. However, if you have a small dog, they likely won’t be able to snuggle in and keep warm when resting in a large dog bed.
If you take the time to watch your dog sleeping, you may notice a few things that will help you determine which type of dog bed would be best for them. This includes their favoured sleeping position. If your dog sleeps stretched out with its limbs flailing in all directions, you should consider buying a square-shaped bed with a larger surface area. However, if they prefer to sleep curled up, a rounded dog bed will be a better and more snug fit.
