Dogs naturally look for comfortable places to rest and relax but if none can be found, they have to settle for the hard ground or floor unless inexpensive or cheap dog beds are available. Any dog can benefit from having his own bed for sleeping and lounging and having some privacy. Owners can benefit from providing cheap dog beds for their canines as well. Dirt, dog hair and dander will collect in the dog's bed instead of on the carpet or the sofa or wherever the dog used to sleep. Your dog no longer has to sleep on the cold floor. Beds are particularly beneficial to old or arthritic dogs that need the cushioning relief for their joints and bones.
Cheap Dog Beds Are Available In Many Styles, Shapes And Colors
There are a wide variety of styles, shapes, sizes and types of inexpensive or cheap dog beds. There are mats, sleeping pads, bolsters, mattresses, cots, nests and dog bags available. The correct dog bed for your pet or working dog should match the size of the dog and suits the way your dog sleeps. Dogs that like to stretch out when they are sleeping do well with a rectangular dog bag and the extra stretching room it offers. Mats and pads are in this category and so are mattresses. Mattresses are thicker than sleeping mats and pads. Consider how much support your dog needs and choose either solid foam for more support or soft polyfill stuffing for coziness.
Your Dog May Benefit From A Certain Style Of Bed
Raised dog beds are great for dogs who like to sleep up off the floor. These beds usually have a mesh sleeping area that is perfect for dogs with thick coats, as it allows for better cooling and air circulation, and have a hard frame. Dog loungers are similar, but they have high and bolstered sides with a deep sleeping area. Dogs that like something to lean on can use the bolstered sides as cushions. There are cheap dog beds that are round and oval with foam, cedar or polyfill stuffing. Dogs that love to curl up to sleep will like these beds. Some dogs like the added security that bolsters inside the beds can provide and some do not. Choose what works best for your dog.
If You Can't Wash It, Don't Buy That Dog Bed
Some dogs like to sleep in a variety of positions. Pillow beds are suitable for these dogs, as they allow for more room for movement. Be sure to get one that supports the dog's weight adequately. If your dog is one of those that circle around and around before settling down to sleep, a nest bed may be just the thing. The sides of a nest may be either fully enclosed or have an opening in the front for an entrance and exit. There are orthopedic dog beds with high-density or memory foam that conforms to the dog's body to provide much-needed relief to stiff, sore and aching joints. These are great for older dogs, dogs with arthritis, and dogs with hip dysplasia. Outdoor beds should have waterproof covers. These should be treated with mold and mildew resistance products. Mesh sleeping areas on raised bed frames are great beds for outdoor dogs in kennels. Whatever type of cheap dog bed you purchase, make sure it is washable.
