Dogs usually are seen as a family member and deserve to have a comfortable dog bed to sleep in. Everyone wants to rest comfortably and you do not want to sleep in an uncomfortable bed. Dogs have very different sleep patterns depending on the type and most dogs will sleep for at least half a day. There are some dogs who sleep even more than that, about 16 hours a day.
The size of your dog will determine what type of dog bed you should get. Dogs like to feel safe and secure when sleeping and therefore they tend to favour beds that envelope or cuddle them. Bed with sidewalls or are curved tend to be popular. The weight of your dog is also important, as larger dogs need a sturdy bed that will not break under their weight. Online stores like Vet Co have a wide array of dog beds in several different designs and sizes to meet your canine's need.
Puppies and older dogs will require different types of bedding. Puppies generally do not have trouble getting in or out of bed though you do not want to buy a bed with sides that are very high as your puppy may not be able to climb into the bed. An older dog with arthritis or stiff joints will need a bed that is easier to get in and out. There is also a heated orthopaedic bed that soothe aches and pains of your dog.
Dog beds are designed to fill certain spaces and you can buy a compact bed if you want. Make sure you have an idea of where you want to put a dog bed, measurement helps while shopping. There are other kinds of dog beds that may require their own room as some very expensive dog beds are designed as a real bed and have a headboard and cushion. You need to buy a dog bed that will fit the desired area otherwise you can make an extra return trip to the store.
