There’s nothing more relaxing and rejuvenating than a good night’s sleep. This is true not just for people, but for dogs, too. Dogs sleep between 12 to 18 hours a day, depending on age. So, they need a comfy bed to snooze on just like you do.
Although you might find your pup occasionally, or often, snuggled at your side during the night, dogs need to have a bed of their own. Then, even when you’re not there, they can relax in a spot that’s dedicated to them. If you don’t let your dog in your bed, it’s even more important for your pooch to have a cozy spot to sleep that isn’t on the floor.
A great dog bed provides your pup with a space that’s not only comfortable but also supportive and soft. Think about how you sleep best. Don’t you feel better on a comfy bed with your head supported by a soft, cloud-like pillow? There are a variety of features that make for a good dog bed, and they should come into consideration when shopping for one for your furry friend.
As dogs age, they may develop problems like arthritis, hip dysplasia, and other joint issues. To help with these issues, a supportive dog bed is imperative to cushion your dog’s body and provide relief from the pain associated with age-related health problems. A comfy dog bed also supports the joints of developing puppies too, ensuring a good night’s rest.
Beds that contain special interlocking fill materials ensure that the bed provides soft, supportive comfort for your dog’s body, especially the joints. This keeps pain for older dogs with arthritis to a minimum at night and during naps throughout the day.
Dogs, like people, need good quality sleep to stay healthy. Not only that, but a good night’s rest improves your dog’s memory and can even make your pooch smarter, according to a study published in a 2017 edition of Scientific Reports. That’s because when dogs learn new commands, they tend to do better in repeating those commands when they sleep properly. After all, when pups are well-rested, they have more energy to devote to learning.
Like people, dogs also need a good night’s rest to stay healthy. This is especially important for older dogs and larger breeds who need a bit more sleep than their younger, smaller counterparts. A cozy bed that cushions their bodies encourages pups to go to sleep and to stay asleep throughout the night.
