Buying a new dog bed for you canine is not as easy as it might look. If you want to spoil your dog with a new comfortable bed than nowadays their are many options to choose from so you must be sure that you are buying the right bed. Although your dog will probably not complain if you bought a bed that he did not like, it would be a shame if he would not use the expensive bed you bought. So what are the things you should look for when you want to buy a new dog bed?
Size is the most important consideration because your dog has to fit in to the bed and use it in a comfortable way. You can measure the size of your dog when he is a sleep on the floor or on a fleece. Wait until he lays in to his usual position, measure it and count a few inches extra just in case. In the shop you can often choose between small, normal, large and extra large dog beds so this will point you a little bit in to the direction.
But size is not the only thing that is important, you also want to adapt the bed to the personality and behavior of your dog. This might sound a bit weird, but you have to take in account when your dog likes to chew on everything, plays outside a lot, likes to roll over in the mud, drools a lot or likes to jump in to a creek. If your dog likes to make everything messy than be sure to choose for a bed that is very easy to clean. There are washable dog beds or beds with a cover that are more easy to clean than other beds.
If your dog likes to chew on everything that comes near him than you also want to take this in consideration. Buy a bed made of materials that are very hard to break or tear so that your dog will not destroy it.
You want your canine friend to enjoy as much as possible from his bed and that is why you should really look to your dog and see what would fit best with him. Also think about yourself when it comes to cleaning and decoration, your dog would probably don’t mind.
