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

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.

Memory foam dog bed

What is a memory foam dog bed? Memory foam was invented by NASA in the 1970’s, but was never used in any space missions. By the 1990’s memory foam mattresses were being sold to consumers. Soon people realized that this was very helpful when they have arthritis. Well dogs get arthritis too, and so was created the memory foam dog bed. The memory foam conforms to the shape, weight and temperature of the dog and gives them a good alignment of the spine. It also supports the painful joints. Veterinarians offer other treatments for the aging arthritic dog, but they also recommend a memory foam bed to ease their pain.

However, not only aging arthritic dogs could benefit from a memory foam dog bed. Based on the size and weight of the dog, a thick memory foam dog bed that conforms to his body, but returns to its original state when he is off it, can be useful. Other dogs, whether they are younger, smaller or more energetic would love the cozy comfort the memory foam dog bed offers. Memory foam dog beds come in different shapes and colors. Some are oval and some are rectangular and flat. It is important to take the thickness of the memory foam dog bed into consideration when you purchase one for your pet. The bigger the dog, the thicker the memory foam should be.
