How To Choose The Best Bed For Your Dog

With an endless series of traditional, designer, shaped mats and other types of dog beds out there, some pet owners may have a bit of trouble selecting the most suitable bed for Bowser. Let me help you out by offering a rundown of some of the most popular varieties:

Traditional Nest

 

I’m sure that you’ve seen the classic oval shaped dog bed, designed so that your dog will receive all of the cushion that it needs while curled up in a ball. If your dog prefers to sleep on the back of the sofa or on the couch cushions than anywhere else, then the chances are good that your dog will take to a traditional conical nesting bed like a fish to water.

Cozy Support Mat

 

These rectangular cushions may remind you of a human bed, and they’re just as comfy for your pooch to pass out on as well! If your dog likes to stretch out while sleeping, or if your pup saws logs with her legs in the air, a spacious and cushioned floor mat is a great choice for naptime. Another great thing about mat-styled beds is how easily they are transferred to kennels for travel. It’s convenience and comfort in one rectangular package!

Bedding Accessories

 

While many dogs instantly identify and bond with their new designated sleeping spot, you can make this space more inviting by placing a blanket or favorite toy on the new bed. Scribbles, my own Yorkie, expects me to prepare her bed every night before she zonks out. That includes “making” the bed by neatly folding her blanket over the nest bed and searching the house for her beloved soft red sheep toy. Either she’s spoiled, or I’m well trained!

By paying a bit of attention to your dog’s sleeping habits, picking out the most suitable dog bed it will be a piece of cake. I’ve found that my friends at DogsCorner.co.uk have a wide range of quality dog beds of both types. They’ve got an excellent selection of high-end, stylish and above all else relaxing dog beds for everyone’s bedtime needs.


Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a sheep to find… Goodnight everybody!
