You must know this about the choice of dog bed
When we share our home with a four legged friend, the pet bed is very basic. They have a variety of shapes and sizes, formats and materials, and play a variety of functions in pet life.
Whether it is doughnut bed, memory foam pad, cooling gel bed, water bed, ice house, basket bed, can increase the "trampoline" and so on.
Here are some tips for you to find the perfect bed for your partner:
We know that nothing feels better than lying in a comfortable bed at the end of the day, and they feel the same way from the behavior of our pets. So there is a suggestion: pursue comfort!
Some pet stores even allow your dog to have a quick "sleep test" in the store. What about cats? Notice where they naturally like to rest and replicate these features on their bed.
Think about their usual posture
Dogs who usually like to lie flat are more suitable for cushioned or mattress beds, while dogs who usually like to nest usually prefer wall or basket beds. Sleep posture often changes with the change of temperature. Therefore, having different styles of summer and winter beds is also worth considering.
Joint problems (usually associated with age or chronic weight problems) including osteoarthritis can also affect sleep posture, so be sure not to limit their body positioning to minimize discomfort.
Surface materials considered
1. This is related to the above points, but it should also be borne in mind that relatively cool surfaces may be required in some seasons and environments, while soft and warm surfaces may be required at other times.
2. Considering that the bed is likely to be reused for a long time (think of the cat!), Health is a key consideration.
Considering dirt, mud and dirt, wiping or washable materials are great. This is also an important point if your pet has an infectious disease, or parasites. Limiting secondary infection or transmission is very important, and choosing a bed that can be cleaned and disinfected is the key.
3. Finally, durability should also be taken into account.
Durable materials may be relatively expensive, but generally speaking, their value lies in the peace of mind you get from bed. We don't want to replace these important pet furniture every year, so let's choose a longer one wisely.
Find a suitable place for a dog or cat's bed
This bed is a "safe place" or a "nest" for your pet, so ideally, it should be placed in a quiet and remote place, free from people and other pets, and should not be placed in a noisy or unpleasant environment for your pet in any way.
It doesn't have to be next to the food and water in the bowl, and it should never be near the litter tray.
Somewhere your pets can manage their contact with you and other family members. It's better to have a clear exit. Of course, you should also ensure that they are clean, dry, well ventilated and not affected by extreme temperatures.
