Small, big, old, young, double coat hair or hairless, all dogs have different types of needs at different stages in their life.
- Puppies – It’s no secret that puppies have a tendency to chew on things. Therefore, it’s important to have a durable bed that can’t be ripped to shreds when taking on the responsibility of a pup.
- Crated Dogs – if your dog is crated, it is best to have a dog bed that fits perfectly into the crate so that they do not slide onto the side of the bed. Whether your dog is small, medium or large, you want to make sure they have ample amount of space and comfort if they are going to be spending long amounts of time in the crate.
- Anxious Dogs – A dog bed with bolsters is ideal for anxious dogs. With the bolsters wrapped around them, they feel a sense of comfort that calms them and helps them fall asleep rather than act out from their anxiety.
- Large Breeds – Larger dogs tend to enjoy sprawling out, so you should ensure you have the correct size for them. If you have a large dog that likes to spread out, consider getting an extra large dog bed that they can feel ultimate comfort on.
- Aging Dogs – Older dogs often deal with arthritis and joint pain. Because of this, it is important to consider getting them an orthopedic dog bed. No matter their size, they will enjoy the comfort of memory foam supporting their body after a day of play.
Remember, there is no such thing as a standard size dog bed for dogs. Even those labeled Large or Extra Large range in length and width from website to website and retail store to retail store. Make sure to take some time in your decision. You're probably going to keep his or her bed for a while, so put your best foot, or paw, forward in the effort.Back to the Beginning >
