Buying a bespoke dog bed online can seem daunting. A lot of owners share the fear of accidentally purchasing the wrong sized bed for their pet. Nothing’s worse than expecting a lusciously soft dog bed for your Labrador and it arriving Chihuahua-sized!
We all want to give our dogs the very best, and a brand new dog bed is the perfect gift for your pooch this Christmas. Today, we’ll be exploring how to buy the perfect-sized dog bed for your pooch online completely hassle-free.
Buying a Dog Bed Online:
It’s really important to buy a dog bed that is the right size for your pooch. Dog beds that are too small can lead to restful sleep, sore muscles and hip and back problems in some breeds.
Buying the wrong sized dog bed is the number one reason pet owners return their dog beds after buying them. When shopping online, it’s important that you check the measurements of the dog bed prior to purchasing.
At SHOOBY, all of our sizing information are available in the product descriptions of our dog beds. This information will allow you to purchase the accurate-sized dog bed for your furry best friend this Christmas.
How to Choose the Correct Size Dog Bed:
Dog beds come in a wealth of sizes and shapes to suit the needs of our furry friends. Choosing the correct sized dog bed online doesn’t have to be difficult if you follow the tips below:
Measure your pooch:
There are no universal bed sizes for dogs, because dogs come in all shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, it would be a lot easier if you could pick a standard size dog bed to suit your pooch’s needs.
You need to measure your dog in order to know what size bed suits them. We don’t recommend guesstimating, this can cause a headache if your dog bed ends up the wrong size.
Measure your dog similar to how you would measure your own size for clothing. Add up to 20-30 cm to the final number in order to give your dog the room they need to sleep soundly.
Start by using a tape measure to measure your dog from nose to tail. Then, measure your pooch from shoulder to shoulder at the widest points. This will give you the minimum size of bed you need to buy for your pooch.
You may need to add more space if your dog is older or is a sprawl sleeper. Restless sleepers may also need a bigger bed to ensure they sleep more peacefully.
Choose the right bedding:
Your dog’s bedding needs to be easily washable and comfortable for your pet.
Remember, that larger dogs and ageing dogs may need more supportive bedding in order to reduce pain and inflammation in their joints. Memory foam is a good option for these dogs.
However, orthopedic dog beds are not just for older dogs. Dogs of every breed and age can benefit immensely from these luxury beds. In fact, the sooner you get your dog/puppy one, the less likely they will face adverse health commonalities as they grow older.
