Warm Dog Beds Promote Joint Health
By Kathleen X. Daye
Your pooch always wants to be comfortable when they lie down to sleep, which is why so many pet owners purchase cooling dog beds and warm dog beds. When your dog or cat is exhausted and wants a comfortable place to rest their head, where do they go? Many people have noticed that their pets love to sleep on the couch, even though this can ruin the furniture and make it dirty. Your pet will feel glad to have their own bed and your furniture will stay clean and last longer as well. Some of the common types of specialty dog beds now available on the market are cool dog beds, warming beds, and orthopedic foam dog beds.
Joint pain is a problem that many older dogs deal with and can cause a normally happy and active dog to become sad. Orthopedic foam dog beds consider this and are prepared in a way that will not put undue stress on your dog’s joints regardless of how they choose to sleep. The foam and down cushions that are used to make orthopedic dog beds come in lots of different sizes so that you can find one that is just right for your pet; the same goes for orthopedic bolster beds which are designed in a similar way.
If you reside in an area with a warm climate, you know that the dog days of summer are especially hard on your pets. The concept behind cooling dog beds is to give your pet somewhere special to lie down that will allow them to cool off even during a hot day. When your dog relaxes on cool dog beds, they will experience a cooling sensation caused by the dispersion of water beneath the bed’s surface. You can also find pet bed coolers that function using electricity and are entered into or beneath pet beds to cool them off for your dog.
During the winter, warm dog beds are perfect for keeping your pooch from catching the winter chill. A lot like you would snuggle up with an electric blanket when the temperature drops, heated dog beds use electric heating pads to provide a comfortable sleeping space for your pet.
If your pet is part of the family, you will definitely want them to feel comfortable at home and while resting. Orthopedic foam dog beds, cool dog beds, cooling dog beds, and warm dog beds are all designed with your pooch’s comfort in mind.
