Have you ever seen a dog in pajamas?
Unlike you and me, dogs have their own unique ensemble that keeps them cool during hot summer nights and warm in the chill of winter. These furry creatures have their own house coat built right in. And conveniently so, as over half of their life is spent sleeping.
The history of the dog dates back 38,000,000 years. Which includes a large variety of dog like creatures; the most familiar are the wolves, coyotes, fox and dingoes. The wolves were domesticated through human contact in the wild, they would follow man, while observing and mimicking. No wonder we can’t get them off the couch!
Today this domesticated lovable creature has made its way into households all over the world, representing over 800 different breeds. Pet owners cannot do enough for their companions, giving them the best of health care, specialty foods, dog daycare, personal walkers, and pleasurable sleeping quarters. After all, we want the very best for our little friends, for all the joy they bring us in return.
Throughout the life span of your dog, every purchase that you make, will invest in their future. Imagine that one solid purchase in a quality pet bed would invest in half of your dog’s life.
If dog’s really do follow us, then a comfortable orthopedic dog bed is a requirement as their domain by your bedside.
The definition of orthopedic is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention or correction of injuries or disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints, and ligaments.
None of these low quality beds in the picture above will support your dog. The pillow in the basket or the elevated frame actually does nothing for their comfort. You should also stay away from beds that do not give enough details in order for you to make a wise decision or ads that look to good to be true. Most likely you are getting an import that has been subjected to many issues such as foreign species of bugs, ticks, lice and deformities in manufacturing and shipping. Imported beds outside of North America are not made with the same quality materials, and usually break down prematurely.
When it comes to dog beds, domestic is better. Imports just don’t match up.
How do you know what you are buying? Ask, or purchase a good brand name.
You need to purchase a bed that resembles the den. Most dogs will lay tucked in a ball and others stretched out. Finding the perfect fit to create a domain can be difficult. Memory foam or orthopedic foam is also appealing to dogs with chronic ailments and should be considered.
