There are many styles of Personalized Dog Beds on the market today, many of which compare to the beds that the people who own dogs sleep on. In a 2006 study it was estimated that we would spend 3.6 billion dollars on supplies such as bedding on our pets that sum of money also includes people personalizing their dog’s bed with the dog’s name.
First things first we need to decide what exactly the needs of your dog is and while we are doing this we also need to keep size in mind. A dog that is too big for a bed will not sleep on it. While a small dog will get lost on a huge bed. Along with the size of a bed, you need to consider your dog’s health. If your dog has issues jumping up on a high surface then a tall bed is not the best choice. In addition, dogs with arthritis need to sleep on a bed that is close to the floor. Even a dog that has no physical limitations may find it hard to get up onto a raised Dog Beds to get comfortable.
The people who make pet products have noticed this increase for the need to acquire places for your pet to sleep and have come out with several styles that are complementary to whatever your design style might be. These people have also cashed in on the business of pet personalization Beds for dogs just like for humans come in a range of colors and designs to choose what fits your room best. In addition, if you do not like a beds color you can always change the color later..
After you have finally decided that you are tired of cleaning up after your pet, it is time to decide on what type you want. Some things that you want to keep in mind are the type of fabric, thickness, the color and most importantly the size.
The third ting to consider is the type of bed that your pet will sleep on. There are four basic types of bed to choose from pillows, mats, rugs and cuddlers. These are the differences between the four types. Pillows are basically just giant cushions. Mats are thinner in thickness, while rugs are as thin as you can go without sleeping on the floor. Cuddlers are a popular choice for the fact that they are supportive on three sides. Cuddlers are just like sleeping on a pillow only with sides this may make the customization a little more difficult if you are using something like a rug to personalize.
Now that you have decided on which type of bed to get your dog. The next thing that you need to do is at the store ask the salesperson what is used to fill the bed. While most of the beds on the market are filled with foam, some manufactures use cedar chips. This is done in order to repel fleas from gathering on the bed. It is important to make sure that the bed is refillable. Also, make sure that any modifications that are done to the bed are not going to interfere with the cedar chips.
When you are at the store deciding on which bed to buy your pampered pooch, you need to ask them what type of filling is used. Most beds are filled with some kind of foam however; some types of beds use something called cedar chips to help keep fleas off the bed.
The last thing to keep in mind is size. A Great Dane cannot and will not sleep on a little square bed with half of his body hanging off the bed. While you do not want to buy dog products that, your terrier gets lost trying to get off. The best bet is before you buy your bed for Fido let your pet try before you buy there at the store. Many pet stores will let you bring your pet with you so you can both make this choice. After all, you are making your dog a part of your family and most of the other family members get a choice in their furniture why not your dog as well.
