Does my dog need a Dog Bed?

Why my dog needs his own bed:

1. A Place of Their Own: Just like puppies feel safe and at home in their cages, a dog bed is a place where adult dogs can be the master of their domain.
2. Health: Sleeping on a floor or other hard surface can be damaging to a dog’s health. Orthopedic dog beds can be used to help ease the pain and discomfort of hip dysplasia, arthritis, or other structural ailments.
3. Cleanliness: Let’s face it; as much as you sweep and vacuum your floors, it still isn’t the cleanest place to take a nap. Giving your canine companion a dog bed will help keep him clean.

Choosing a Bed for Your Dog

The proper type depends highly on the size of your dog:

  •  How big is he? Measure your dog while he’s lying down — then add 12 inches to ensure you buy the properly sized bed.
  • Your dog’s weight will help to determine what type of fabric is best. Heavier dogs will require more durable fabrics than lighter dogs.

How often should I replace my dog’s bed

How often you replace your dog’s bed depends on how the bed looks, feels, and smells, as well as your dog’s preference for the bed. In the beginning, your dog probably loved its bed, spent every minute on it.
Aside from hygiene, which can be solved by washing most of the time, the bed’s support is the most important thing. The bed needs to be comfortable for your dog, so replacing your dog bed depends a lot on its quality as well as the size of your dog.
So if your dog is no longer showing interest in their bed, step one is washing everything, and maybe even putting a new sheet over it. If your dog is adamant about not sleeping on it, however, show them how comfy it is by lying down on it yourself. If all else fails, simply get a new bed.
