Dog Beds – Some Things To Consider

You may have recently acquired a new little furry friend or perhaps one is a family member already, either way, you'll need a dog bed for Fido. This may seem pretty obvious, but a dog bed is an essential part of your dog's well-being, so choosing one that bests suits his needs is something requiring a little bit of thought.

Dog Beds as a Training Tool

No matter the type of dog, using a dog bed as a training tool is a no-brainer. I rescued Jack Russell puppy about 2 years ago, and the dog bed I bought for her was an essential part of her training. If your puppy is naughty, then 'time-out' in a bed is a great way to discourage bad behaviour. You can find a wide range of dog beds online via

Small dogs

Small breeds of dogs, such as Terriers and Chihuahua, are unable to retain body heat as easily as greater breeds because of their small size, so as to help them stay warm and comfortable, consider purchasing a fabric or pillow-style bed. You may have more than one small dog, in this case, having a place where they can all sleep together will help keep them warm and safe. 

Big dogs

Large dogs, as a rule, are lumbering great beasts, and typically seem to fall asleep in the most inconvenient places, in front of doors or in hallways – pretty much anywhere that's right in the way! Large dogs also tend to drool, depending on the breed, and clean the drool off from furniture is no fun in anyone's book. Dog beds are available for dogs up to 50kg, so you are sure to find a suitable bed for your best friend.
