Choosing the Right Dog Bed for Your Pooch

For many pet owners, an anxiety dog bed is simply a functional and necessary item. However, for some dogs, their bed is a way of showing affection and showing you that they are loved. So whether you’re an active dog with lots of energy or you’re more of a laid back dog with a nap, it’s very important to find the right dog bed for your dog. Many dog owners may think that there’s just one big dog bed on the market, but every dog is different. So if you have a pooch that sleeps like a log during the cold winter months and then wants out for the weekend in warm weather, you need to find a dog bed that fits their personality and lifestyle.

Most dog owners know three types of dog beds available: traditional styles, premium dog bedding and orthopedic dog beds. The difference between the different kinds of beds is the quality of construction and the materials used. Each one has its advantages and disadvantages. Traditional styles include dog beds that are made of cedar, cotton and other synthetic fibres. All these materials are relatively maintenance-free and safe for most climates; however, they tend not to be as soft as some premium materials, such as memory foam.

High-end beds tend to be more durable, come with extra pillows and even have luxurious linings and stuffing. Some luxury dog beds will have additional padding over the top of the foam to provide extra support to make it even softer. Orthopedic beds are made to give dogs extra support, and orthopedic pillows made of memory foam can help dogs sleep through the night without being uncomfortable. However, many owners of higher-end luxury breeds find that these beds are a bit too lavish and can put them to sleep rather than giving them the restfulness they so desire. Even some high-quality luxury dog beds come with a limited warranty that lasts for three years.

As previously mentioned, there are two types of a dog beds. There may only be one single elevated section of the bed with support built into it in high-quality luxury beds. A luxury bed may also come with a low profile design, where the bottom half of the bed has no sides or even a removable bottom panel. Orthopedic dog beds are designed with support in mind; they are lower to the ground and designed for your dog’s comfort. Orthopedic beds are usually made from memory foam, but some higher-quality beds are covered in leather.

You can purchase luxury dog beds from your local pet supply store, from online retailers, or you can shop at some of the upscale online pet stores. You can even customize your high-quality anxiety dog bed. However, it is important to note that if you choose to custom make a dog bed, be sure to measure both your dog and your bed to make sure that you are getting the right size. Many of these beds come with a removable mattress protector that allows you to clean underneath without removing the protective covering.

If you have multiple sizes of dogs, or you are looking for an anxiety dog bed for more than one dog, you might consider looking into dog bed inserts. These cute little liners replace the need for a dog bed completely. They come in a variety of sizes and can easily be inserted between two mattresses. They provide an extra layer of comfort for your dog while saving you the time and effort of purchasing a new dog bed. A good example of a multiple size insert is made to fit a Standard Poodle, a smaller sized dog bed that would otherwise be uncomfortable.
