Finding just the right dog beds can be a little overwhelming. We don't really have the option of taking our dog out looking for a dog bed and getting their input. This means you will need to do the shopping with your dog's needs in mind. There are some things you will need to look at when selecting a bed for your dog.
Getting the right size bed is vital to your dog's comfort. You want a dog bed that is a good match for the size of your dog. The only way to get a good fit is to measure your dog. You will first need to take measurements of your dog while it is standing up. Measure your dog from the shoulders to floor and from the end of the nose to the beginning of the tail. You will also want to take measurements of your dog while it is sleeping. When selecting a dog mattress add around a foot to the standing measurements of your dog to get the best fit. Add around nine inches to your dog's sleeping measurements to get the right size nest and ball bed. It the bed does not have enough space your dog will not be comfortable. When buying a bed for a growing dog look for one your dog can fit when it reaches its full height.
The shape of dog bed you choose will depend on the size of your dog and its favorite sleeping position. Think about where your dog does most of its sleeping. Dog's will usually have a few favorite places around the house. If your dog sleeps one place during the day and another at night consider getting a dog bed that is easy to move around the house.
Think about whether the height of your dog bed will make it easy for your dog to get in. There is a wide variety of dog beds on the market today when it comes to materials and styles. The best selection for your dog will depend on the particular needs of your dog including the local climate, it's favorite sleeping position, and it's size.
