Help and advice on shopping for: Dog Beds
A perfect pooch pet bed
Dog beds give your dog a space that is specifically their own. Every dog needs a safe, warm and cosy place to rest its head after a long day. Swell Pets offer a fantastic range of practical and fashion-conscious dog beds available at great prices, allowing you to find the right bed to suit the needs of both you and your dog.
Why might I buy a Dog Bed?
Our dog beds are chosen by our pet experts to ensure that not only do you have a great choice, but you can buy with confidence knowing that each bed is made of quality materials that your dog will love. No matter what breed of dog you have, it is always vital to give them their own space and make sure they are warm, dry and comfortable, from their puppy days to their golden years. Dogs will appreciate having a spot to relax away from the hustle and bustle of your home too.
When it comes to canine comfort, a supportive dog bed is imperative to cushion your dog’s body and support the joints of developing puppies as well as older dogs, ensuring a good night’s rest. Buying a pet bed also offers the benefit of keeping all shed fur in one area, thus requiring less maintenance. Travelling with dog beds also allows your dog to feel comfortable and sleep in familiar places. They’ll rest easier and feel less anxious.
What features should I look out for?
When choosing a pet bed, make sure it provides proper insulation, sufficient joint and weight support, warmth, and optimum comfort. It should be washable and easy to clean as well. Besides budget, make sure the bed fits your dog well; heads and limbs shouldn't hang over the edges. Think about your dog’s preferred sleeping position – do they prefer to stretch out or curl up in a cosy corner? If your dog values privacy and prefers to sink into a space, a sofa dog bed with raised sides might be more suitable than a mattress for dogs who require more space.
Do dogs need dog bedding and memory foam?
Dog bedding tends to be a thick matting used to line the bottom of a cage or kennel to make it more comfortable. Traditional bedding, like pillows and blankets, is unnecessary for most dogs, although older dogs do sometimes appreciate a blanket on a cold day. On the other hand, memory foam has become increasingly popular in recent years and can be found in many dog beds as it helps to support joints and prevent long-term back and muscle issues.
