There’s nothing cuddlier than a sweet new puppy. Bringing home a new addition to the family means providing for the puppy’s every need, including the need for a new puppy bed. Today’s puppies are more spoiled than any previous generation. Right down to the new puppy bed, your new baby will be pampered.
How to choose a puppy bed
Depending on the breed of your puppy, it’s important to purchase a puppy bed large enough to accommodate your dog. Some people choose to buy a puppy bed that will last them for years to come; one that will be big enough for the doggie when its all grown up. Others choose to buy a cozy, little puppy bed to last until the puppy is big enough to sleep elsewhere.
A puppy bed should be made of comfortable materials. Some choose vivid colors to treat their puppies like royalty. Others choose neutral colors that blend well with the décor of the home. There are all types of beds to choose from, and your puppy bed should be, luxurious but practical, cushiony but compact. Most puppies are happy on anything soft and warm anyway.
You can also choose to use a puppy bed that will protect your floors in case of an accident. You can often purchase reusable absorbent pads that soak up liquid accidents from playful puppies, or from puppies that are not yet housebroken and choose the wrong place to do their business.
Many pet stores sell thick, comfy cotton covered puppy bed and accessories for your pet. So many different styles, patterns and colors are available. Your puppy will be so cute when he falls asleep on his new puppy bed.
You can also choose a puppy bed that can simulate a mother dog’s heartbeat on a timer to alleviate separation anxiety experienced by puppies that no longer have their mothers around.
As you choose a puppy bed for your new houseguest, who will soon become your best friend, be sure to purchase a puppy bed that is chew-resistant. Also, buy the puppy some extra chew toys, treats and an extra blanket just for puppy.
Where to purchase a puppy bed for your dog
A good, sturdy and comfortable puppy bed can be purchased at any pet store, retail or outlet store, as well as online. Sometimes it’s just easier to shop online and save time. The great variety of puppy bed selections will thrill your family. Kids are often good at finding the right puppy bed for their new companion. It’s as if they are tuned in to the puppy’s needs. Give your child a chance to provide input into the selection of the bed. And if it’s available, buy a puppy bed nametag for the new tyke!
