When you bring a new pet home, you'll want to give him a cozy pet bed to curl up in at the end of the day. Pet beds come in different sizes and shapes for different types and sizes of pets. Most popular for dogs and cats, pet beds give you a good way to keep your furry friend from sleeping on your furniture. It's important to choose pet supplies that meet your pet's needs. The pet bed you choose should provide support, security, and comfort for your dog or cat, so choose one that is right for your pet's sleeping habits and for his breed. The following list of pet bed types can help you find the right bed for you and your pet companion.
Round pet beds are perfect for cats who prefer to sleep curled up. Larger sizes are available for small and medium dogs who like to curl up and keep warm while they sleep.
Nest-like and cave beds let your pet crawl inside and snuggle up. These are great for puppies as well as aging small dogs. Many cats will also love to sleep in this style of pet bed because it gives them a den-like feeling and a quiet place to catch some Z's in privacy. These stylish beds are great for other small animals, like rabbits and ferrets, too.
Cushion-style pet beds are great for medium and large dog breed who like to stretch out while they sleep. Your pet should be able to stretch out completely without hanging off the edge for comfort and to avoid joint problems.
Bolster pet beds give the pet who likes to prop up his head a perfect pillow. Many bolster beds are designed to be placed on your sofa, so your pet can be close to you while you watch TV without getting fur all over you upholstery.
Heated beds are great for small animals in the winter months; they also make aging pets with joint problems more comfortable.
Cedar-filled pet bets are great if you are concerned about fleas. Cedar is a natural flea repellent.
Memory foam beds have natural heat retention, making them great for small or aging animals, as well as the picky pet who demands to be pampered.
Pet beds are fairly inexpensive and are, for a pet with joint problems, the best thing you can buy to keep them comfortable and happy. Buy at least two pet beds and place one where your pet sleeps at night and the other in the room where you spend the most time. Sparky can rest comfortably while he watches you do your thing.
