DO DOGS SLEEP LIKE HUMANS?
Depending on the age of the dog, they can either sleep for almost the same as an average human or more but never less. The average adult dog spends almost 17 hours sleeping if undisturbed. However this may be hard to notice as they can frequently wake up to play or snuggle up with their owner. Newborn puppies on the other hand can sleep for 22 or more hours a day waking up only to feed and as they get older they may need a few more hours to walk and play before sleeping again
SHOULD DOGS SLEEP IN A CRATE OR DOG BED?
Don’t worry about getting a crate or a bed for a dog. Like humans dogs find even the oddest of places comfortable. So you can get either a crate or a bed and your dog will decide which is more comfortable could be the floor or the crate/bed. If not maybe you’ll see it frequently on one of the garden chairs.
HOW CAN I TELL IF MY DOG IS UNCOMFORTABLE?
Well though dogs can’t speak telling if a dog is in pain or uncomfortable is quite easy especially if you are close with it. If its uncomfortable it will either shift positions frequently or leave and find some place more comfortable to rest, or it could give you whimper and there so do something about it.
DO DOGS LIKE FLUFFY OR FIRM BEDS?
Who wouldn’t want to rest and relax in a warm fuzzy and fluffy space, a dig would obviously love a fluffy bed. However some fluffy beds with time tend to lose shape and balance and may instead cause joint pains for dog. Firm beds on the other hand are comfortable and most are orthopaedic and work well with older dogs. Firm beds are good in that they offer equal support to the whole body so it’ll be easier for your dog to shift or stand unlike on the fluffy bed.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY DOG’S BED?
Its best to replace your dog’s bed after a year and when you can see that the mattress no longer holds your dog from the floor. However some beds are designed to last longer than just a year so when you can tell that your dog is no longer comfortable and the bed doesn’t have the same volume and look as when you first bought. That’s the best time to change.
DO DOGS NEED BEDS?
Getting your dog a bed is beneficial for both ends, and yes just like humans dogs need a bed. In any case if a dog has a bed it at least has a place to retreat to for a comfortable nap or when it just needs time alone and at the same time if it has a bed that will make sure you won’t find it sleeping where you don’t want it sleeping.
IS THERE A SPECIFIC BED FOR MY DOG’S BREED?
Most dog beds are varied by size and not breed, as long as your dog can fit and nap comfortably that’s fine unless if certain material causes irritation to your dog then any bed is fine for your dog’s breed.
Well there you have it, all the best beds and sofas for your large fluffy friends. You know your dog best and you at least have an idea of what it needs.
