Do you own a dog? Are you looking for the right bed for your beloved pet? Do you need a new dog bed because your old one is too uncomfortable or is just plain old dirty? Then it’s time you got a new one for your dog.
Before you go out and randomly choose one out of the many different types of dog beds on display, you might want to take a little time to consider your pooch. Some breeds of dogs are bigger than others. Other dogs require different sizes and weights. Also, different types of pooches have certain needs when it comes to comfort. So let’s have a look at some of these different types of pet beds and see what is right for your pet.
One of the most popular and probably one of the most comfortable types of beds for dogs is the memory foam. It is very soft and can be extremely warm if made right. Many owners who have purchased this product have likened it to being like sleeping in a nice cozy cave. The top picks of this product in our research are the original memory foam dog beds, which comes in either a full size or smaller sizes as well as the “Cave Bear” version which is the same style and is designed for puppies.
Another of the top picks for beds for dogs that really use the foam is the orthopedic styled beds. These are designed for small dogs that get motion sickness and those with problems with their joints. The reason they are so great is that they usually come with a hard plastic base that has raised sides and a center spring mattress. This is very comfortable for a pet that is really active and is a good choice for a bed. Many pet stores carry them, but they may not be as readily available as other types.
The third and final pick on our list of top picks for beds for pooches is the orthopedic foam dog bed. This is by far the most common of all the beds for puppies and smaller dogs. This is very comfortable and very easy to clean. Our pick of the top pick in this department is the “Siberian” variety, which is the same as the traditional model but with a firmer and warmer feel to it.
Our final pick on the list is the memory foam pillow bed. This is a very popular item and is available in many different types. One of the top picks for this purpose is the “Siberian” models, which is designed for puppies. The larger size comes with two pillows and one includes a blanket. The other style includes a “cave” design that provides for additional warmth. Like the other two beds above, these can be purchased at most pet stores as well as being widely available online.
As we have mentioned before, there are several different types of dog beds on the market. In order to narrow down your choices, you should first decide what kind of look and feel you want from your bed. If you would like to provide your dog with an environment they will love then consider purchasing a dog bed with elevated sides. Many of these beds for dogs feature a cedar wood frame that is painted to mimic a log cabin. These elevated sides will provide comfort for your canine companion as they sleep at night.
If you would like something more traditional but still be able to provide a warm and cozy bed for your dog then consider purchasing one of the raised-sided dog bed styles. Some of these beds for dogs feature plastic flaps that are fitted at the edges over the sides of the bed. These plastic flaps are sewn together at the top of the bed and have fabric slings attached under the sides that help to securely hold the bed up in any position.
