We keep changing. Over the years, our test change, and the way we accept and treat things changes. For example, our pets and interior design. Who thought just a several years ago to corporate the pet bed with the home decor. Today, combining the two into a harmony of colors and shapes, complimenting each other, is just the norm.
There were times when the dog was “just” a dog, and a cat was “just” a cat. Dogs were sleeping on the floor or carpet, cats, most likely, in parent bed. They were loved no less, but we treated them somewhat differently. Today, pets are part of the family and we treat them as our babies, pampering and caring. One of the major changes is the dog bed.
With growing awareness of our home design, the pet bed becomes an important buy, from pet health and caring point as well as a design point.
Although it sounds easy, it is really complicated to decide which bed is the best for our pet. There are so many types, shapes, colors, size, etc. That sometimes it is overwhelming and you just don’t know. Add to that your existing furniture, color, and now you may be really confused. So you choose the nicest bed, but, does your pet happy with your choice?
How to choose the right pet bed size: Start by measuring your pet’s body length: when your pet is lying down measure body length, then add 8 inches. The total is the width your pet will need for an oval bed, and the depth your pet will need for a rectangular bed. If the bed has a bolster or other raised exterior, you”ll need to consider the internal dimensions, not the external ones. If you stuck between two sizes, go for the larger one.
What shape of bed, my dog need: This one is quite easy. You probably know already what his preferred sleeping position. For example, if he likes to curl he’ll appreciate a round or oval bed. If he loves to lay his head on a pillow you may consider a bolster or a dounut bed. The secret is: watch him / her and you’ll have your answer.
Type of foam: Older / senior/ joint and health issues dog will appreciate an orthopedic / memory foam bed. It also needs to have an easy access. Most trusted manufacturers, do use high quality materials like human grade or infant standards.
