If your pets are treated equal to if not better than the two-legged members of your family, then spoiling them with luxurious sleeping quarters is not an option but a necessity. And, just like humans, pet beds should fit individual needs. Teaching your dog to sleep in his own designated area also helps keep your furniture fur-free.
Here’s a quick guide to making sure your pampered pup is warm and cosy in his or her new bed.
1. Make sure the bed is thick enough to provide insulation against cold, hard floors – especially if you live in a cold climate.
2. If your dog is getting on a bit, he will need a bed with plenty of padding for joint and bone support.
3. The bed needs to be large enough to support your dog’s fully-stretched body. As a rule of thumb, measure your dog’s length and add 15cm.
4. Investing in a quality bed with orthapaedic foam is not only beneficial to canine health, but these beds will also wash and wear for longer than their cheaper polyester counterparts.And make sure your bed has a machine-washable cover.
5. If you’re opting for an outdoor bed, make sure it’s constructed from materials that are fungus and mould resistant.
