Small Dog Beds For Your Small Dog

Monday, June 27th, 2011

In our modern world, the fact that dogs have become so closely intertwined with our lives is no surprise to most of us. Finding small dog beds for your small dog should be a priority for you when you have a favored pet in your own life. They can be found readily enough, too, at any good pet store. It’s a reality that dog supplies, accessories and fashions are big business, these days.

Just about any large pet store can supply a nice variety of dog beds, no matter the size or even the breed. They’re also made from just about every material imaginable. The most popular ones are the classic wicker basket-type models. Nowadays, they may have padding that’s anti-allergic and easily washable. Even dogs like to have a comfortable bed to sleep in, the same as any human. When you realize how smart they are, you shouldn’t be surprised.

There are a couple things to remember when it comes to picking the right bed for your dog. If he or she likes to chew, perhaps you want to go with a sturdier basket than just wicker. A dog usually won’t chew on what it sleeps in or on, but try to account for that, nonetheless. And keep in mind the kind of padding or blanket you’d like the dog to sleep on. What you like could be different from what it eventually settles on. And different breeds could prefer different bed materials than others.

There’s really a bed out there for just about any kind of dog. And beds can be found in just about any sort of style you can imagine. Classic art-deco, French name it. When it comes right down to it, why wouldn’t Spot or Fido deserve a well-made, good-looking bed to lie down in when it comes to getting in forty or even a thousand winks?

You can find completely enclosed beds for your dog, too. And they can be disguised to resemble a different piece of furniture, such as a dresser or a loveseat. Some dogs like having a private place they can call their own, away from any tail-pulling little kids. It can be their home-away-from-home, so to speak.

Small dog bed accessories abound in the marketplace. Pet supply stores can have a wide variety of such items available for purchase, and blankets or pads can be customized, also. A bed frame or basket can be decorated and made to look as fancy or as splashy as the dog’s human companion may desire. Be sure to use non-toxic materials, though.

For the dog with special needs or who is older, there are even ortho-type beds to help ease the dog’s little aches and pains. They help support the musculo-skeletal system of Fido, when he needs a bit more help in his later years. Check with your veterinarian if you have any questions about your dog’s special medical requirements.
