There are a plethora of different kinds of dog bed available in the shops, which vary according to size, design, comfort, material and cost. Your dog may have a favorite bed for nap time, lounge time and bed time, so selecting the perfect dog bed is therefore just as important as selecting a bed for yourself.
It is important to take into consideration your dog’s age and health as well as the location of the bed itself. For example, will the dog be sleeping in his crate or in the bedroom? You may wish to purchase several dog beds and place them around your home. For the style conscious, dog beds even can be chosen to match current furniture.
Just as there are various different breeds of dog, there are various beds to choose from, with designer beds, donut styles, crate beds and heated fleece beds being popular. However, these beds aren’t always practical to take out travelling or if your pet has come in from a walk particularly muddy.
Waterproof beds are a good idea for those whose pets seem to be eternally muddy or enjoy sleeping outside on a nice sunny day. Such beds can be used both indoors and outdoors or even in the back of a car. When dirty, instead of the hassle of washing and drying the bed in the washing machine or by hand, a waterproof dog bed can simply be hosed off. Hairs do not stick to the waterproof material which is also less likely to hold any lingering dog smell, so such beds can be much more hygienic than their counterparts. As well as practicality, waterproof beds are incredibly comfortable, being deep filled with a non slip base. Therefore, waterproof beds can provide comfort for much loved pets, combined with ease of use for their owners.
