You like to sleep in a nice comfy bed so why wouldn’t your puppy? When you have a dog, you should provide him or her with their own bed so they can rest and relax, and so they stay out of your bed. Moreover, a puppy bed is not only good for comfort but it’s better for your dog’s fur as well. Regardless of your reasons for getting a dog bed, there are a few different styles and you want to select something that will be good for the life of your dog.
First of all, there are very simple doggy mattresses that come in different shapes. These dog bets can sometimes fit nicely into a dog house and can even be used indoors. Buy something that is resistant to chewing and that can be easily cleaned in your washing machine. Also, consider the full size of your dog and not their current puppy size. Obviously, most puppies will grow so you want to get a bed that will be big enough for them as an adult.
Another style of doggy bed is the pet tent which combines the mattress with a dog house. Especially if your puppy is crate trained, and this is always recommended, she’ll get comfortable having a private place to relax alone. A pet tent provides the best of both worlds for your puppy: a nice cozy place to sleep and a private enclosure to escape a noisy house. Just remember that you have to consider the adult size of your dog when purchasing a pet tent as well.
Your dog’s bed is not only a place for sleeping but helps protect their muscles, bones, and fur for the long term. Just as you wouldn’t want to sleep on the floor every night of your life, neither does your dog. Get a proper puppy bed so your dog can get a good night’s rest.
