Different Dog Beds

by Eric Hartwell

It may be surprising to you, but doggie beds now come in all shapes, sizes and features. Some of the more common types available are those shaped like furniture (such as sofa look-alikes, donut shaped with an outer ring that is higher than the inner ring, round beds which are simply round, and hooded beds that have a canopy-style hood or arch) or reversible dog beds.

If you have an older dog that needs specialized features for their resting place, there are orthopedic dog sets. These beds can give more comfort for your ailing pets as they experience sore joints and bones from a long and happy life with you. You should care for your dog just like he would care for you. The extra price you might pay for a specialised bed is more than worth it considering the loyalty he has shown you over the years.

Aside from the above, you should also look into beds that are easy to wash, scrub and dry and can also endure wear, tear and friction. You may also want to look at waterproof or moisture-resistant beds.

Choosing the right bed for your pet not only ensures your dog?s well being, it also enhances the feeling of security he will have in your home. More importantly, choosing the right bed will give you a chance to learn your pet?s preferences, and help both of you adjust to each other.

And lastly, the ?right? bed for your pet gives him his own space and comfort zone ? otherwise, he may end up sharing your bed.
