Things to Consider for a Pet Bed

dogsleepThe size, health and needs of the dog or cat are a few of the prime aspects to consider before buying the bed. Talking about size, the bed should be big enough to let the pet lie flat on his side on the bed.

Old dogs or dogs that are ill or have arthritis would need special orthopedic dog beds.
The next consideration is the comfort level and style of the dog bed. Big cushions can serve as pillows, while dog mats are thinner than pillows. Rugs and cuddlers would definitely keep your dog comfortable and support a curling dog on all three sides.

The filling of the pet beds must provide the utmost comfort to the animal. Foam is the most preferred choice. Make sure you get removable and washable bed covers, because dogs are bound to make them dirty. Extra bed covers will prove to be a great help, especially with dogs that are not yet trained properly.

The Basics of Crate Training

cratetrainIf you’re interested in crate training your dog, there are several benefits that your dog can derive from this endeavor. But there are things to keep in mind with this training. For one, crates are not meant to be permanent indoor houses for your dog. As such, your dog isn’t meant to be cooped up in his crate for long periods of time. And spending time in the crate should certainly never be used as a punishment. If your dog has done something wrong, don’t ever send him to his crate. He will only learn to associate the crate with punishment.

With dog crates, you also want to make sure you indulge in a crate that’s big enough to accommodate the dog, his water dish, his food, and even some of his preferred toys. You can make the crate more comfortable and accommodating by adding a couple of dog crate pads as well. Also keep an eye open for potential health problems in your dog. If your dog is feeling nauseous, for example, don’t confine him in his crate. This can only lead to a seriously compounded problem.
