Dog Beds Give Pups A Home Of Their Own

It's bad enough sharing your bed with one dog, but two?
It's no secret that humans and dogs share a close sense of companionship. That kinship, though, can be put to the test when it's time for bed. Just like humans, dogs seem to enjoy extra space in beds about as much as we do. While it's true that dogs need sleep, it's important to get your own rest, too.

If you currently sleep with your pooch, you're not alone. According to WebMD, a survey showed that almost half of those who participated shared their sleeping space with their pup. It also showed that 62 percent of small dogs, 41 percent of medium-sized dogs and 32 percent of big dogs share their beds at night.

While it may be comforting to have a furry animal in bed with you, it can cause health concerns. First of all, dogs carry many allergens, mainly dander, that can cause allergic reactions in pet owners. Although they might not feel allergic in open rooms, when a dog is in close proximity and sharing sheets, allergies can become much more prominent.

Dogs also can cause you to get less sleep. Just as we tend to toss and turn in our beds, so do dogs. As you may be aware, many pooches like to "make their beds" and use their paws to shuffle sheets and blankets into a comfortable spot for themselves. However, with all of that shuffling around, it's easy to take notice and wake up.

So, why not consider a dog bed?

Types of Dog Beds

Fortunately, there are a wide variety of dog beds to keep dogs comfy throughout the night.

One of the most popular kinds of dog beds are known as "pet nest" beds. These beds are oval in shape and almost form-fitting to your pooch.

  • Quiet Time e'Sensuals Nesting Bed This indoor bed comes in five colors and sizes, while providing excellent comfort for your pooch as the padded walls contour to the shape of each dog, providing relaxation and good rest each night.
  • K & H Self-Warming Nuzzle Nest: This bed is another nest-style bed that provides superior comfort to each dog that uses one. Yet, unlike other nest beds, this leopard-print bed absorbs your pet's body heat to warm the bed, without using any electricity.
  • K & H Thermo Snuggly Sleeper: This bed is similar to a nest bed in shape, but is able to keep pups warm during the cooler months. The Snuggly Sleeper features two thermostats to provide warmth, but at low wattage. This bed also has the option to act as a cooling bed, with the simple switch of an insert under the pad.
One more type of bed that can greatly benefit a dog is an orthopedic dog bed.
  • K & H Memory Sleeper: Similar to the other types of dog beds mentioned, an orthopedic dog bed provides maximum comfort for your canine. However, this bed (like many human mattresses) features memory foam, which can be especially beneficial for dogs with hip and joint problems. This bed also comes with a removable cover that is easy to wash.

Dog beds help make sleeping alongside your pup a better experience for both you and your pup. Available in a variety of options, sizes and colors, dog beds can make getting a good night's sleep a breeze which will keep you more well-rested so you have more energy play with your dog!
