Let’s explore few tips for a pet bed shopping with an animal lover and founder of bow wow productions- Stephanie Taunton.
Consider the measurement of your pet
You can use a tape to measure your pet from nose to tail. Considering the measurement is especially important if your pet stretches out when he or she feels lazy. Whether you have a dog or a cat, he or she will definitely like to sleep on the right-sized bed. Those pets who do not stretch out and love being cradled usually prefer smaller, rounded pet beds. In fact, few pet bed sizes are based on weight. If your animal is larger and heavy, you may need denser cushions on pet beds. The weight of the pet possibly crush thinner cushions, and your pet obviously won’t find the bed comfortable.
Make a Place where you will keep the pet bed
Choose a place for a pet bed while considering the size and style of the pet bed. Suppose you are buying a bed for a cat and wanted to place it on a small table near a backyard, make sure the bed should not bigger than the table edges.
Consider the features you required ion a bed for your pet
In case your pet is dealing with arthritis, in such situation, beds with a thick padding or a foam bed may be the right choice. You can choose heated pet beds if your pet chill easily, for example, hairless cats and kittens, dogs with short hairs or older pets. If your pet likes to crawl under beds or choose isolated areas to sleep may love a hooded pet bed instead of an open bed.
Choose the colour and style according to your choice
Pet beds are available in many colours and designs; you can select the one that compliments your decorating tastes. Suppose you want a pet bed that matches with your own blue sofa or you may seek a pet bed that complements your other furniture with a little animal print, then you have to search accordingly.
Consider the washing instructions before purchasing
Once pet beds get dirty you need to get it washed or replaced. You may find a majority of the beds with machine-washable cover, however, make sure the rest of the bed is also easy to wash.
