Tips on choosing the best bed for your dog.
It is a common problem, Fido has taken over your couch, favorite lounge chair, or even your bed. While some pet families enjoy cuddling up with their dog on the furniture, it is also important to give them a place of their own. With a variety of shapes, colors and sizes to choose from, Muttropolis dog beds offer style and comfort while featuring durable and washable fabric.
What sleeping style is your dog? Below are some things to consider when choosing a new bed for your furry family member.
Snugglers & Cuddlers
If your dog likes to sleep curled up, or in a position where its paws are tightly tucked under the body, a bolstered dog bed is ideal. Often called donuts or cuddlers, these beds resemble a nest and give dogs a sense of security. Donut or Cuddler beds are great for fine-haired dogs that like to burrow into a sleeping position where they can snuggle-up and keep warm.
If you have an aging pet, a low, orthopedic bed bed may be easier for their joints. Shop orthopedic beds.
Outdoor dog beds can provide your pooch with all the comforts of home while enjoying the fresh air. Shop outdoor dog beds.
Choose the right size
Choose a bed that is the correct size for your dog. While lying flat, completely stretched out, your dog should not hang off the bed. If your pet's measurements are in-between sizes, always purchase a larger sized dog bed.
Introducing a new bed to your dog
Many dogs are skeptical of their fancy new pad for the first few days. Properly introducing them to their new dog bed is a simple process. To help your dog get comfortable, use positive reinforcement and never use the dog bed as a punishment. Hide some healthy dog treats inside, cuddle with them on the dog bed, or give them a new bone to chew when they are lying on their bed. All of these supportive experiences will convince your pet that the new dog bed really belongs to them.
