There are so many dog beds for small dogs on the market to choose from that it might be a bit of a headache to make sure that you are buying the most suitable one for your pet. Be aware of buying a best-rated dog couch that simply looks very fashionable and goes well with your room decoration, as these might not be the very best choice for your special little pooch.
Following are the main types of beds you can consider before buying:
A Corner Dog Bed:
A corner dog bed would be particularly suitable if you live in a small house, flat or apartment. This type of small dog bed, is of course, designed to be situated in a cosy corner and as corners are not high traffic areas, they can be a very good choice of place for your small dog to be able to sleep in peace and quiet.
An Anti-chew Dog Bed:
Small dogs can be prone to chewing their bed, just the same as any other size of dog and if this were the case, the best choice would be an anti-chew or chew resistant dog bed. A metal frame bed could be the best choice and this type is usually elevated, with a steel frame and chew-proof, or at the very least, chew-resistant fabric.
A Memory Foam Dog Bed:
A memory foam dog bed is a great choice and will benefit any dog because they are so comfortable, but if your dog has arthritis, this type could really help because it would alleviate any pressure points and diminish joint stiffness and discomfort.
In summary, if you are thinking of buying a new bed for your small dog then you will need to consider, how much you want to spend, the type of design and material you are looking for, whether your dog would benefit from a memory foam bed and, most importantly of all, the actual size that will be best for your dog.
So, if you are on a tight budget, a plastic bed would be an option. If you want to put the bed in a quiet corner then look for a nice, cosy corner bed and if your pooch is a bit of a ‘chewer’ then you will need to look for a tougher design.
Lastly, if your dog is elderly or unwell, a memory foam dog bed. Thinking about all these points, before starting your search, will help you to make the right choice first time.
