The final step to choosing a dog bed is Fabric and Washing Instructions. While most dog beds are covered with machine-washable fabrics we need to look at the dog versus need to wash. Do you have a young puppy just learning to be house broken or an older dog with some bladder issues? Then you want a dog bed that is easily washed in your home washer and dryer if accidents happen. If you have a well-adjusted dog, then you can choose a bed that isn’t quite so easy to wash. For outside dogs you will want to look for a bed that is weather resistant and UV protected, Like the cot style beds that are popular now.
The first step in choosing the right bed is to Measure your Dog from tip of nose to tail with a measuring tape. This is especially important if your dog loves to stretch out and relax, you’ll want to make sure you’re getting the right-sized bed. Some dogs prefer to curl up and be cradled in a smaller round bed. Some beds are based on weight, a large heavier dog will require thicker, denser cushion. A heavier dog will flatten out thinner cushions and your dogs bed won’t last as long or be as comfortable.
Our next important step is Determine Which Features Are Most Important. Is your dog older with arthritis? Then a bed with thick padding or memory foam may be your best for your dog. Is your dog a little shy and tries to find secluded areas to sleep then a hooded bed may make your pup happier. Does your dog like to rest its head on things? A bolster or Sofa bed would be the perfect fit for those dog. There are also Cuddle and Self Warming beds for those dogs that tend to be chilled easy such as short-haired dogs or aging pets.
