Traditionally, dogs were not provided beds, and were lucky to sleep on a pile of rags, if they were allowed in the house at all. In recent years. However, lately the trend has been for people to pamper their pets. Not only do their dogs have beds, they have deluxe, stylish designer dog beds to go with their chic haircuts.
With the growth of designer pet accessories such as dog collars and even clothing, it is no surprise that humans would want designer dog beds that would match the style of their home, and the style of their dog accessories. The trend toward high-end dog beds has become so prevalent that there are stores and websites specializing in nothing but designer dog beds.
Fancy Names, Fancy Prices Normal dog beds, which are available in a great variety of styles and colors, and which not only can meet your dog’s needs but also can match your decor, only cost around fifty dollars. The price varies primarily according to the size of the bed (which in turn varies according to the size of the dog). As soon as you add a designer’s name to the exact same bed, the price will at least double.
Form Factors of Designer Dog Beds Designer dog beds aren’t typically just the same old beds with a designer’s name on them, however. Even when these dog beds follow the same form factor as non-designer beds, the designer who puts his or her name on the label has thought out the look and style. They come in just about any style, shape or size you can imagine.
A typical form factor for these beds is the “donut” style. They don’t resemble donuts all that much, as the bottom is actually solid and cushiony. They do have a ringed edge, also cushiony, and this edge is what gives this style of designer dog beds its name. The ring part of the bed makes for an excellent headrest for your pet.
Some dog beds carry the anthropomorphizing trend indicated by the prevalence of doggie sweaters and other designer doggie clothes to extremes. Designers create designer dog beds that resemble human furniture, like little sofas or lounge chairs. Chances are these mini sofas are available in a fabric or pattern that matches your own sofa.
Along those lines, some of these dog beds are styled to look like little human beds. Some even have headboards and footboards. Other designer beds are styled more like the rest of your furniture, with designer dog beds hidden away, as if they were miniature indoor doghouses, except disguised as end tables.
Special Function Pet Beds Some dog beds are available which have advanced functions to increase your pet’s comfort. For example, heated dog beds are available. These heated dog beds are ideal for older or arthritic dogs. Heated dog beds may not be the ideal pet beds in warmer climates. In hot climates, dog beds are available with cooling pads.
Things to Consider When Shopping for Designer Dog Beds Different breeds of dogs have different body types, build and sleeping habits. The type of bed you choose for your dog should depend on not only your dog’s body type but also your dog’s habits. If your dog chews things, choose a bed that is sturdy and “chew proof”.
It is very important that you consider not only the decor of the room where you wish to place the bed but also your dog’s habits. A fancy doghouse style bed, which neatly hides your dog’s bed away, isn’t going to be all that useful if your dog doesn’t like small, enclosed spaces. You don’t want to spend a lot of money on pet beds for your dog only to have him ignore it.
If you are buying for a puppy, make sure you understand how big the dog will eventually grow. You will either have to buy a large bed later, or just buy one at the start. If your puppy is a larger breed it may be a waste of money to buy a small bed when he is small, as they grow fast.
