Dog Beds & Cat Beds - Choosing a Pet Bed

Dog beds, just like collars, leads, coats, hoodies and almost everything in the designer dog world come in a multitude of shapes, sizes, materials, designs and colours! With all the different options available it is important to carefully consider the ideal bed for your dog or cat, just as you would your own. Pick the dog bed which is going to suit your pet's size, shape and sleeping habits and give them the most comfortable nights sleep. Once you have found the ideal pet bed finding the design and colour to match the curtains is an added bonus!

One of the first things to consider when buying a dog bed or cat bed is the size and shape. It is important that your pet fits comfortably in their bed to ensure they get a full nights (or days!) rest. Pets sleep in a variety of positions and you should observe their favourite before doing anything else, this shouldn't be too difficult, especially for cats! Many pets like to curl up into a ball, similarly others like to stretch out and take up as much room as possible. Once you have identified your pets preferred position it will be easy to find the size and shape of their new cat or dog bed, as with most pet products always over estimate a little.

Another key thing to consider when choosing your new pet bed is the material it is made from. For larger, heavier dog breeds it is well worth investing in either a wooden or metal framed dog bed to withstand the heavy loads put on them. It is also reasonable consideration if you have two medium sized pets sharing a bed. A sturdy framed bed by a manufacture such as Wallace and Jones or The Iron Pet Bed Company will not only last under the weight of bigger dogs they also look great and come in a variety of stylish designs.

For many smaller dogs a solid framed bet is more of a luxury, they require a small pet bed which is both soft and warm. Designer pet bed manufacturers such as Posh Pet Bedding and Puppy Angel use high quality modern materials to ensure you dog or cat is comfortable throughout the night. The material should be easy to clean and machine washable if at all possible. Cat beds, and probably dog beds more so will become dirty and smelly, a bed which is easy to clean is always preferable.
