- Evaluate the size, age and health of your dog and think about the type of bed in which your dog will be most comfortable. Many of the small and toy breed dogs like beds they can snuggle in and keep warm. These are commonly called snuggle dog beds or Bumper Beds. Big Shrimpy Nest Beds are a fine choice and Bowsers Dog Beds are one of our most popular bed lines of all time.
- Pillow beds are a good choice for a cushy feel and maximum lounging.
- Check to see if the covering on the bed is removable and washable. A washable cover is almost a necessity since it will surely get dirty over time.
- Try to match the dog bed to the overall “look” of the room in which you’ll be keeping it. With so many fashionable options, you no longer have to hide an unsightly dog bed. Remember - you will be living with this choice for years to come.
- Consider what you want to spend. There are a variety of price points to meet your budgetary needs.
- Choose a bed that is the right size for your dog. The dog should be able to lie flat, completely stretched out on his side, without hanging off of the bed.
- Remember that your pet's bed can and should contribute to your overall training program for your dog. For instance, if Fido is an unruly beggar during dinner time, you can easily train him to hang out in his new, comfy bed with the help of a yummy Dog Treat Toy.
- While many of us love snuggling with our dogs in our own beds, sleeping with your dog can lead to a poor night’s rest for you. A disruptive night can affect your mood and cause you to be less productive the following day.
