Posted by waggers on April 13th, 2013

Dog beds offer a great level of comfort for both the dog owners and the dogs. It prevents dogs from rolling around on your couch or bed and provides a cushioning surface for your dogs to sleep or lie down comfortably. Many dog beds are available in the market based on the needs of the dogs and the dog owners. The criteria that one needs to consider before purchasing a dog bed includes the size of your dog, its age, the type of bed that suits your dog, the ability to clean the bed frequently, the comfort it offers to your dog, the amount of space it occupies in the room, the cost, etc.

Types of dog beds that are available in the market are:

  1. Orthopaedic beds - They are best suited for older dogs. They are made up of thick polyurethane foam and memory foam therefore reduces any kind of strain or pressure on the joints. The outer covering of the foam can be removed and washed.
  2. Couch dog beds - These beds are made up of cotton-poly blend cover that are easy to remove and. It comes with an overstuffed bolster around the bed that provides a firm support. It is a couch style dog bed that fits snugly next to your sofa, where your dog can sit comfortably and stretch out.
  3. Dog crate bed - They consist of cushion pads with raised cushion sides that serve as a pillow for your dog to comfortably position its head while sleeping.
  4. Nesting dog beds - They are mostly made for small sized dogs and puppies. It comes with fluffy, plush soft bedding that offers a great comfort to your miniature pets.
  5. Travel dog beds - They are the ideal beds for those who spend a lot of time in travelling. They can be easily fitted in the car boot. They are made up of synthetic sheepskin covers that are stain resistant and easy to cleanse.

Choosing a right type of bed for your dog is as necessary as buying a bed or sofa for yourself. It should not only offer comfort to your dog but should also require less labour for its maintenance. Do not forget that like us humans even dogs desire for a comfortable place to relax and sleep peacefully.
