What bed for a puppy?

What is the first thing caregivers buy for their puppies? In the vast majority of cases, it is a toy. It doesn’t surprise me at all. There is probably nothing more adorable than a tiny dog ​​cuddling up to a toy almost his size.

However, I would like to approach the dog layette slightly more practically. Therefore, today my goal is to provide you with information that will help you choose the best bed for your puppy.

Young dogs like to play and spend time actively, but at the same time, they need a lot of sleep later to regenerate their strength fully. Therefore, a comfortable bed is essential to every little puppy’s layette.

What to look for when choosing a puppy bed?

Before you buy a bed for your puppy, I would like you to pay attention to a few critical issues. Thanks to this, choosing the perfect model will be much easier for you, and your four-legged friend will enjoy a comfortable bed.

The size of the dog bed

When buying bedding for a puppy, many dog owners try to act preventively. What does it mean? They purchase bedding sized to fit the dog when it reaches his final size. I understand what these people do, and it’s pretty logical. However, few people realize that it is harmful to the dog.

Your puppy may experience discomfort when sleeping on bedding that is too large. Too much sleeping space can overwhelm the dog. Remember that your puppy is just learning the world around him. Many things can overcome him.

A sense of security is significant for small dogs. They will approach all new experiences with great reserve if they fear what surrounds them. They may not want to explore the world, which significantly increases the chance of being dependent in the later stages of life.

Dog bed material

The material of your dog’s bedding is just as important as the clothes. Puppies are susceptible, especially in this early stage of their lives. Their skin and fur are still very delicate.

That is why it is so important that the bed where they spend a large part of the day sleeping is made of high-quality material. Otherwise, they may experience all kinds of abrasions, as well as a feeling of discomfort during sleep.

In my other post, I talk about why it is worth choosing high-quality accessories for our four-legged friends. You will find it here: why is it worth choosing good quality products?

The shape of the dog bed

There is no denying that many variants of bed shapes are available on the dog products market. But how to choose the one that will be the most suitable for your dog? When caring for a small puppy, you must consider his motor skills.

Consider whether the bed you choose for your dog does not have too high walls. They can significantly make it difficult for the dog to enter the bed. Such a problem is significant for puppies belonging to a group of small dog breeds. In the initial phase of their lives, such dogs can be tiny.

Therefore, even jumping over the bed’s wall can be problematic for them. In such a situation, I recommend you choose a bed with only three walls. Thanks to this, it can be much easier for your little puppy to enter his bed.

If you are wondering which bedding model will work best for your dog, I recommend the CLASSIC line from Bowl&Bone Republic. The beds have a lowered front wall, thanks to which even a petite dog can cope with entering his bed.

Type of dog bed

When we think about a dog bed, the first thing that comes to mind is usually a classic bed. That is a widespread dog bed, but not the only one. Other options are also worth considering.

When choosing a puppy bed, I recommend checking a dog pillow or mat. My dog ​​feels comfortable sleeping in classic bedding like a pad. One is placed in the bedroom, and the other in the living room.

Thanks to this, my dog can nap no matter where I spend my time. And you certainly know that dogs feel best and safest when we are right next to them.

A good solution with a puppy under your care, but not only, is a travel dog mat. As we know, young dogs are incredibly energetic and lively, but at the same time, they need a lot of sleep and rest. Therefore, when you go out with your dog, it is good to have a portable mat.

While older dogs usually can find a place to sleep in a new home anyway. Puppies are not so familiar with the world yet and often feel uncomfortable. Therefore, taking a nap on a familiar bed with a well-known smell will give the dog a lot of comfort and security.

A travel mat you can take anywhere with you is a perfect option. In the Bowl&Bone Republic assortment, you will find two lines of such mats, LOFT and CLASSIC.

Puppy bedding filling

Unfortunately, a very often overlooked issue when choosing a dog bed is its filling. We pay attention to the shape, colour, and material. Still, we forget that what is inside the bed is also extremely important, especially in the case of puppies, which, as I mentioned earlier, may still have sensitive skin in the early stages of their lives.

Filling the bed may cause an allergic reaction in your four-legged friend. That is why I recommend focusing only on those brands that use hypoallergenic filling in their lairs or pillows.

These are the products you will find in the Bowl&Bone Republic range. Their beds are filled with certified, hypoallergenic artificial down. Not only is it suitable for sensitive dogs, but it also makes the bed very comfortable.

The perfect bed for a puppy

No one bed will undoubtedly work for absolutely every dog. However, if you take into account these tips, I am sure that you will be able to find the best bed for your little dog.
