Choosing Between The Standard And Plush Dog Beds
If you are looking to give your pet the most luxurious of accommodations, look into dog beds. Dog beds come in all shapes and sizes to meet any need that you may have. Dogs can use a dog bed alone to sleep at night and a crate for the rest of the day. Unlike a bed on the floor, a dog bed is going to keep your dog warmer, aid arthritic bones, and even prevent calluses from forming. And unlike a sofa or an actual bed, dog beds aren’t just spaces that pups are able to have all alone to themselves.
Most dog beds today actually offer two parts. There’s the top part which serves as the actual bed. This is made out of a quilted style fabric that offers warmth to whatever area is underneath. The second part is covered in a durable leather or canvas that protects your dog’s soft skin from cold surfaces.
Some dog beds actually combine these two components into one unit. The lower portion of the bed includes a removable cover that includes a cushioned bottom for comfort and safety as well as a drawstring closing to close off access to the second part of the bed. This allows you to utilize the second half of the bed as a couch while still keeping your pup cosy and protected. This is a great way to provide your pet with the ultimate in bed space. It also has the added benefit of being able to roll the bed up and move it if needed.
If you are considering getting a dog bed that combines a couch and a bed, there are some things you need to look for to ensure you buy the right one. A good fit is critical for both your dog’s comfort and your sanity. Because dogs tend to dig, chew and bark, you want a unit that will not entangle their fingers. Another thing to consider is whether you want an open or closed design. There are units available that allow you to lock the door for extra protection but many others are open and allow your dog free run of the room.
Dog crates make excellent dog beds. They come in a variety of styles and can even be made to order to coordinate with a specific breed. Some are portable, allowing you to transport them from room to room. Others feature an outer crate that functions as a bed that collapses to create a very comfortable place to curl up. Some have removable inner covers that allow you to clean the interior of the crate without disturbing your pooch.
Purple pet beds can easily be washed in a washing machine. The washable fabric is stain resistant and machine washable. When the Velcro on the bottom is attached, this makes it easy to remove and replace if your dog decides to do a number of laundry in a day. If you purchase the plush option, there is an additional cost for washing that bed as it does not come with any Velcro.
Dog beds provide additional support during hot or humid weather. The plush material keeps your dog’s body heat in while keeping it cool to the touch. This allows your dog to stay healthy and warm without excess exposure to the heat or the cold. These types of dog beds provide additional support during long hours of outdoor walks. It is also important to have a large enough space for your pets when outside to allow them adequate ventilation.
In addition to dog beds, you may also want to consider dog cages as well as harnesses and leash carriers. The cage provides a safe place to play while on a walk and provides a way to attach a leash. The leash carriers on the other hand, allow you to guide your pets around safely without having to worry about them jumping on you. Most standard dog beds will come with these accessories included, however, you may need to purchase additional accessory items to meet your needs.
