Dog Crate Beds

Dog crate beds come in different sizes, shapes and make. Based on the size of the crate, you get a slightly smaller bed so it will fit well. Many dogs spend a long time there, so it is best to make them comfortable. Kate, my daughter’s Morkie is a lot of fun. In the mornings when she sees her human parents getting dressed for work, she tries to hide, but gets caught. She sleeps in the crate bed till noon, and then she has 1 hour with her dad and back into the crate she goes, until one parent or the other comes home. I thought she dreaded going in there, so I was given the opportunity to keep her at my place. All week she was free, and would lie very close to me. She moves when I move or else she is asleep on the couch. Saturday morning came and I showered and got ready for church and came down with my bible and handbag. As soon as Kate saw me all dressed up, she quietly went into the powder room where her crate was. I thought it was so cute, watching her back into the crate. I always hated putting her in there, but she is comfortable in there and feels safe, until one of us gets her out. She is ready to go out when we pick her, so we get her leash and go out the door for a little walk for her to do her business.

Lately, she goes into her crate when she knows it is time for her human parents to go to work.  Sometimes when they are ready to go to work, they have to look for her, and they have discovered that she just goes into her crate is sound asleep in her leopard design crate bed.  Sometimes she drags one of their clothing into the crate with her.  She is just so adorable. You dog will love you for thinking of their comfort by getting them a soft dog bed

Fancy Dog Beds

As pet owners we look for fancy dog beds because they are so cute, and look so pretty, and it matches all your furniture. We think that maybe that round bed with metal ornamental frame looks so good. Do our pets really care what the bed looks like? I am sure that to some extent our pets do have good taste and like pretty things. Remember, they love to be in your bed. Now if your bed was not so comfortable, and does not look so good, would you like to sleep in it? Just as we look for certain features when we choose our own bedroom furniture. Here are some tips in choosing a bed for your pooch:

* Looks are important

* The fabric must be soft, the color depends on your decor

* Odor absorbent crystals in the pet is important

* Thickness of the mattress pad indicates how comfortable it will be

* Memory foam mattress would make it more comfortable, especially for heavier and older dogs

* Thermal mattresses offer warmth to arthritic dogs

* Cooling dog beds are a great comfort in the heat

* Make sure that the cover of the mattress is removable so it can be washed and sanitized, or else it will stink after a while

* If your dog sleeps outdoors, an elevated dog bed may be a better choice so that it won’t be so hard on the ground, and will not pick up dirt

* Some dogs have an attraction to silk and satin like my Kate. She begins to scratch and get ready to sleep when she sees satin, especially under the Christmas tree

* It is alright to find a fancy or designer dog beds, as long as they are comfortable too

Just as we like to lay our heads on a soft pillow, dogs like pillows and even blankets to cover. When I was growing up, we had a big white dog who slept on the floor. But as soon as we left the house, he would jump onto the bed, put his head on the pillow and cover himself. Then when we get home, and he hears us opening the door, he will get on the floor and sleep as if he was there all along. One day we spied on him and discovered his secret. In India the dogs were expected to sleep on the floor. Now I know better. So be kind to your four-legged friends and give them a comfortable and pretty bed for themselves so they won’t have to sneak into your bed for comfort.

Pet Control

We all love our pets and do not wish to see them on the street. So why would we not want to take precautions so that their babies are not on the street or abandoned. We need to be responsible pet owners and have our pets spayed or neutered. PETA says that a cat can have up to 4200 kittens in 7 years. That would happen if she was pregnant most of the time. However, there are 4 million dogs and cats that are homeless and have to be taken care of by the humane society. Animal shelters wish that we would adopt the pets that are with them, to give them good homes. The reason there are so many homeless dogs and cats is because pet owners do not practice good pet birth control. And when these pets mate with other breeds and there are mixed babies, many times they are unable to sell or give away these puppies or kittens and sometimes are left to fend for themselves.

When you buy your pet from the pet store or some breeders, you may be buying them from puppy mills. However, as a responsible pet owner, if you adopt from the Animal Shelters and make sure you spay or neuter them, you will reduce the number of unwanted puppies and kittens. Most people want to adopt a cute puppy and not an adult dog. The older the dog, the harder it is to get them adopted. Just as humans want to adopt infants rather than older children. Many of the animals that are not adopted may have to be euthanized, because there is no one to care for them.

Making sure that your pet is well taken care of and loved, means practicing pet birth control. How many of you have seen a puppy or a kitten that did not seem to have a home. Sometimes they adopt you if you feed them, but if not they wander around till the animal shelter picks them up. They are cared for, but need to be adopted. We cannot expect others to take care of the puppies and kittens born because we did not spay or neuter our pets. So be a responsible pet owner and practice pet birth control.

I love my daughter’s dog, Kate’s company, and loves dressing her up in stylish dog clothes and unique dog collars, and have her sleep on designer dog beds.

Senior Citizens as Pet Sitters

Dogs are great companions for all age groups. There are dog owners who are looking for someone to pet sit for them while they are on vacation. Some people leave their dogs in a kennel, or even in luxurious pet motels that have spa quality treatments. However, some dog owners would prefer their dogs to be cared for at their homes where their pets are in familiar surroundings.

Many young people are employed as dog walkers and dog sitters. But a Senior Citizen, who is looking to subsidize their Social Security income, will find this as a great job. Not only will they get paid to go feed and play with a dog, they will receive the benefits of having the love of a dog, or many dogs. Dogs bring many health benefits for a Senior Citizen.

A Senior Citizen may be alone and in need of company. Having a dog is great because he will love you unconditionally, will not talk back or argue with you. And most of all, he is faithful. If however, owning a dog is not possible, the next best thing is to pet sit for others. This job comes with great benefits. Dogs are taught to pick up things that are out of your reach. There are dogs who can tell when the sugar level of a diabetic is too low, and they alert them to the fact. Guide dogs are a great asset to the blind. You can even train puppies who will become Guide dogs, and that will bring you a feeling of great accomplishment. It may be hard to give your dog away after loving him and training him, but you will feel good to know that he is helping someone else. All in all this is a win-win situation for both the dogs and the Senior Citizens.

Dog crate beds

My ‘grandbaby’, Kate was here for a couple of days with her parents.  We got her a new crate with a dog crate bed and bumper.   The dog crate bed and bumper were of animal print.  Once it was set up, we tried putting her in it and she seemed pretty happy about it.  Her previous crate was a closed carrier, and when she was in there, she could not move much.  This is a wire crate which gives her the freedom to look out and not feel totally enclosed in it.  My daughter said that when she put Kate into the crate, she did not fuss at all.  usually, we could hear her ‘stomp her feet’ and bark when they put her in before they leave her and go out to work. Today, as soon as she went into the new crate she started ‘digging’ the new dog crate bed.  That is what she does when she is getting ready to sleep.  She loves satin, silk and leather.  She starts digging or scratching on any of these materials.  The new dog crate bed is made of faux fur, and she seems to like that too.

It is very important to get the right size dog crate bed to fit the crate.  So when we set up the new crate, my daughter was worried that the dog crate bed and bumper, that was bought much earlier may not fit.  But actually, I checked the measurements before ordering the crate.  When we put the dog crate bed in, it was a perfect fit, and so was the bumper guard.  The bumper guard was so that she won’t lie down too close to the wire cage or hurt herself in any way.  Another new thing for her is that she can see out and not feel claustrophobic in there.

Designer dog beds

Designer dog bed

Nature’s Foundation dog beds were developed with your pet in mind. Just as you would purchase a bed mattress with a support system for yourself, so you should consider a designer dog bed with a support system for your pet. The unique design of this designer dog bed incorporates 2 3/4″ of orthopedic foam on top of 2″ of cedar bedding which is enclosed in its own zipper bag that can be refilled and washed. The combination of the foam and cedar gives unparalleled support and comfort. Other features of this designer dog bed include a washable cover that’s nylon on one side, fleece on the other and a carry handle for portability. This designer dog bed gives great support for your dog, keeps the fleas away, and repels odors.

Designer dog beds

I was reading another blog and they posed the question: Since when did dogs and cats become choosy about designer items.  He said, why would dogs need an expensive designer dog bed, when they would just tear it up anyway.  I wondered what type of dog he had that would tear up his bed?  Then again, my sister said that their dogs chewed through the beds they bought.  I realize there are dogs who will chew on anything they can get a hold of, unless they are trained earlier not to do so.  Our Kate is a small dog.  She loves satin and silk.  Yesterday, she was sitting on my sofa, but when I put my silk pillow down, she promptly got on top of it.  Dogs can be picky about having a designer dog bed.  They do have a sense of what is pretty, soft and has quality.  Of course, very often pets take over their owner’s beds, and push them off.  In that case they would not need a designer dog bed.  But if the dog is trained to sleep in his own bed, then a fancy dog bed is always welcome.  Smaller dogs like the softer fabric and don’t need their beds to be very thick.  The larger dogs may do quite well with a fleece or terry material, but a thicker bed, like a memory foam dog bed would be appropriate for them.  But most of all, it is not the dog that cares about the designer tags, but the owners who want nothing but the best for their best friend.

The surface of the dog crates may be hard, and therefore it would nice if we placed a dog crate bed for our pets. Just as if we were to sleep on the floor, we may find ourselves a little sore, our pets may feel the same. It would be a kindness to make their stay in the crate a little softer with the dog crate bed. How many of our pets spend part of the day or night in the crate? Would it not be best if their sleeping spot is nicer or softer, with a pretty dog crate bed? Our pets do not complain about where they sleep. They are just happy when you open the crate door and let them out. All is forgiven. They love you so much that no matter what happens they still show their love. Since they make life so much more pleasant for us, should we not make their lives as pleasant as possible with a soft dog crate bed. Dog crate beds come in different sizes, thicknesses and colors. A darker color is best so that any stains will not show after it is cleaned. The size and thickness depends on the size of your crate. It also depends on the type of crate you use. If your crate is made of wire, then they definitely need a dog crate bed. They will also need a crate bumper guard. Just like we have a bumper guard for our baby’s crib, our dogs need a dog crate bed bumper guard. If there is no bumper guard, our pets may chew on the wire, and may have tears in their mouths. Dogs tend to chew on things, when they are bored, or want to get out. It is important to train you dog to stay in the crate and a soft dog crate bed will definitely make the time pass a little more gently and softly. It is also important to remember to remove the cover off the dog crate bed and wash in gentle soap especially made for dogs.

Raised dog beds

I was just thinking about all the flooding we have had recently. I noticed that many people lost their homes and everything they had to the floods. However, there were a few lucky people who did not. Why? Because they had raised houses. Some of the houses were built on stilts and it was a blessing because it protected their homes. All around them was water, in fact people brought them groceries by boat, but they were dry. Just as a raised house saved them from floods, a raised dog bed protects the dogs from whatever is on the floor. Yes, even when it rains, the raised dog bed will not get all soggy and wet. In fact the raised dog bed helps the dog stay cool on hot days, because air can circulate under them. A raised dog bed can be placed anywhere and still be comfortable for the dog. Raised dog beds can be placed on cement, hard floors or even in the grass, and your pet stays comfortable no matter what the surface of the floor is like. There was one lady who said that she hated the steps up to her home, until now, when those steps up saved their home from the floods.
