Dog beds come in various shapes and sizes and more importantly, types. They also come in different price ranges ranging from less than a hundred dollars to a couple hundred and are best placed in various positions within the house. So, first off, what is the best kind of bed for your dog:
The pillow bed has a very basic design, however, it is super comfortable. It is made with materials that can resist food, water, and stains. The best place to position this bed is in a corner within the house or at a somewhat elevated level so that your pup has a height vantage point.
Bolster beds have characteristic plush raised sides and a soft base. The design is reminiscent of the nesting box where mother dogs give birth in. The sides provide extra comfort and support and are great for dogs who love to snuggle or stay under covers.
Tent beds are enclosed on all sides and the last one is left open so that they can go about their activities. The tent has walls that are made out of cotton, canvas, or other waterproof material and the base is very plush.
This bed type is best suited to older dogs who have some form of old-age ailments such as sore tendons from lots of movement or arthritis. The bed is designed to help relieve pains such as those from hip dysplasia. An orthopedic bed also comes in handy to keep joints, tendons, and bones healthy as your dog ages.
An elevated dog bed keeps your dog away from the floor, thereby relieving pressure from pressure points. This bed type is easy to maintain, breathable, and can be used both outdoors and indoors. It also comes in handy for camping trips.
Choosing a bed type for your dog could be quite the activity, but the important part is to choose based on their need.
