When shopping for dog beds it can pay to know a little bit about the different kinds available on the market. Many places have dog beds for sale, but there is typically a wider selection at a store that specializes in pets, such as PETCO for example. Browsing through their stock is often enough to get an idea of what is out there.
Active breeds may benefit from having durable dog beds that will hold up well over time. Small dog beds suit toy breeds, and its easy to find room for them in the home. Large dog beds may be more of a challenge. Measure available areas before shopping to be sure that a bed will fit in a particular space. Designer dog beds may cost a bit more than average but can work well if they need to go in the main living space.
Cute dog beds are available in a wide range of colors and sizes. Most have foam in the center for additional cushioning. This can be especially nice for older dogs who suffer from sore joints. There are also "cool dog beds" designed for the outdoors. These help keep dogs from overheating in the hot summer months and may be a good investment if a dog spends a lot of time outside in the warm weather.
