How to Choose the Perfect Dog Bed
We all love our dogs and want to provide them the best we can afford. Until a few months ago, my dog had been sleeping on the same old bed we got for him when he was a puppy. Now that he has gotten older and practically has outgrown his old bed, I wanted to give him a treat by buying him a new dog bed.
Well, it went pretty well for him and now he has a brand new sleeping space. If you are going to buy your dog a bed, these are the things that must be kept in mind.
Look for a comfortable dog bed
The first thing to look for in a dog bed is comfort. If it is not comfortable, it isn’t worth buying. Memory foam beds offer an extremely comfortable choice for a dog bed. This dog bed comes with a pressure filled memory foam that ensures a sound sleep every night. Memory foam takes care of your dog’s joint pain and soothes the bones and sore muscles. It ensures the dog's good health and mobility because of its innovative design.
Another choice is a comfy high quality polyester bed that is extra soft. It comes with a thick layer of fabric that allows your dog to cuddle and stay warm. It is filled with high quality polyester fibers that allow a soothing sleep experience.
Find a dog bed that fits well in your home
Look for a dog bed that compliments the theme of your house. Purchase a bed that matches the color theme and style of your décor. In that way, it would just appear as a normal accessory by matching your home's colors. The memory foam dog beds come in different colors. They are available in different animal prints. You can choose to buy one that either matches or contrasts the color of your dog’s coat.
Find a dog bed that is easy to clean
Don’t invest in a bed that’s hard to wash. Look for one that can be washed easily. The regular memory foam beds come with a zip able cover. These covers can be washed in a washing machine. The foam itself cannot be washed in the machine, however, it is very easy to clean using a wet towel. You can also use disinfectant to clean germs and bacteria. Easy cleaning is essential because a dirty dog bed would ail your pup and not smell so great in your home.
Buy a dog bed that is durable
Durability is the key when you are looking for a dog bed. Buy a bed that will last a long time. Make sure the foam won't flatten after a few months.
Buy a waterproof dog bed
Prefer a bed that is waterproof? A waterproof outer liner would save you from a lot of trouble. It is easy to clean and easy to use. Memory foam liners are waterproof. Or you could also consider a waterproof dog throw / blanket. They are available in many colors and work well on the floor or on a couch or regular bed. These help when accidents happen especially from senior dogs.
These are some of the most important things to consider while buying a dog bed. An easy to clean, waterproof, durable and comfortable dog bed would allow your dog to sleep peacefully at night. Doesn’t he deserve it? After all he’s your best friend and we know you wouldn’t want anything better than to ensure his health and wellbeing are considered.
