Dog Beds and Their Benefits!
It’s really important to get the perfect bed for your pet.
Their bed will be their place of comfort and rest, and therefore it pays to get one that is big enough and comfortable enough for them.
Getting the Right Size
- While your dog stands, measure from the tip of the nose to the base of the tail.
- Then measure from the top of their head to the ground.
- Add two inches to each of those measurements, and you have the optimum width and length of bed for your pet.
- If your pet likes to sprawl with their legs out in front of them and behind them, take the leg measurement into account too, and add a leg and a half onto your bed width measurement.
Your dog will want a nice cushioned bed to lie on, and these come in various shapes and sizes.
Beds with a deep, high-density foam pad, like our Big Dog Bed Easy Wipe Premium Cage Mat, are great for supporting dogs well while still adding comfort, and can be brilliant for dogs with sore joints that need a more orthopaedic bed.
It’s not just your pet that benefits either; if you buy the bed with the correct materials, you benefit too!
The Easy Wipe Premium Cage Mat comes with a waterproof antibacterial PU cover. It’s soft, cool and comfortable enough to sleep on, and it’s really easy to take care of by simply wiping down or hosing off when necessary. This makes it great for pets that aren’t quite housetrained yet, or those that get particularly mucky.
