also love to have ownership over certain things, like their cage, their
toys, their food and water bowls and their beds.
Getting your dog a dog bed, and putting it next to your bed can help
them feel more a part of your family.
The history of dogs is a storied one. As the modern understanding
of genetics developed, humans began to intentionally breed dogs for
a wide range of specific traits. Through this process, the dog has developed
into hundreds of varied breeds, and shows more behavioral and morphological
variation than any other land mammal.
Because of this they understand us and our emotions with
an astute sense of being that one would not normally find in an animal.
Dogs just want to be included in the goings and coming
of everyday life. Getting them a dog bed that can be paired alongside
your bed is a treat that every dog wants to have.
Like humans, dogs need a good night's rest. There are
several advantages to buying your dog a bed.
The first advantage is that it gives your dog comfort
and warmth during the winter months. Just as we cuddle up in our warm
beds during the winter season, and throw on an extra thick blanket,
you dog can get cold too, unless they have access to warm sleeping arrangements.
Another advantage is your dog will also benefit from having his or her
own space. Similar to children who want to have a bedroom all to themselves,
dogs enjoy having a little special space of their own. Also, if you
dog is older or arthritic, a soft mat or bed for them to rest or sleep
in will help them feel for warm and comfortable.
Just like humans, dogs need a good night's rest to stay
happy and healthy. Getting your dog his or her own bed has many benefits,
and it will help you keep your couches and furniture more cleanly from
shed pet hair and dander. Get your pet a bed; they will thank you for
it by being more comfortable and content.
The first step in deciding what kind of dog bed you want
to purchase is the size and potential size of your dog. If your dog
is a puppy, you do not want to buy a bed, only to have the pup outgrow
the bed, leaving you with a useless piece of furniture.
The second thing you need to determine is whether or not
the dog likes sleeping in a dog bed. Most dogs will, and you can find
out by making a pallet for your dog out of old blankets. If they like
to lay on those, then they will love having their own dog bed.
Dog beds come in all shapes, sizes and designs. There
is Coil Spring, Fiberfill, Foam type fillings available. The shapes
can be oval, circular, squared, and rectangular and really anything
your imagination can make it.
Some beds can even come in the form of a little couch
or ottoman. Again it all depends on what your dog prefers.
