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, fashionable wardrobes, dog daycare, personal dog walkers, and pleasurable sleeping quarters. After all, we want the very best for our little furry friends, for all the joy they bring us in return.




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. Throughout the life span of your dog, every purchase that you make, will invest in their future longevity. Imagine that one solid purchase in a quality pet bed would invest in prolonging your dog’s life. Then a comfortable orthopedic dog bed is a not just a necessity but a requirement.


Discount Box Stores?




None of these low quality beds in the picture above will support your big dog. That nice pillow selling at your local box discount store or that bed selling online that has thousands of fake reviews, may look appealing in the picture and sell for a really cheap price. However they are all disposable and made of thin fabric and whatever recycled fill can be found for the cheapest price. It may be good for a 20lb dog, but not a large Labrador Retriever or Great Dane, who require specific orthopedic support for their joints. The elevated cot in a frame variety, do nothing to support their joints and are often worse than no bed at all. You should also stay away from beds that do not give enough details in order for you to make an educated decision. Stay away from 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 bugs/insects, lethal pesticides, cheap labor, lower quality guidelines and deformities and mold due to constrained shipping containers. Imported beds outside of North America are not made with the same care and quality materials, and tend to break down prematurely. 




When it comes to dog beds, domestic is better. Imports just don’t match up.
