It can be oh so tempting to let your furbaby sleep in bed with you, and I'm sure they'll be happy as a clam to do so, but should they have their own bed too?
The answer is yes, and here are some reasons why:
- Dogs need a place to rest that is specifically for them and they can have it all to themselves.
- Dogs tend to sleep more than humans and they should have a space where they can go when they don't want to be disturbed.
- Dogs need a soft spot to sleep on rather than a hard floor, especially as they age. The right dog bed will protect their bones and joints and help to maintain good health.
- If you are allergic to pet dander, you are less likely to have an allergic reaction if your dog isn't sleeping right next to you.
- You won't have to constantly clean pet hair from your bed, and your bed won't have pet odors.
- Dog beds are lower to the ground as opposed to human beds that require the dog to jump up, which may cause injury.
- Your dog is less likely to become anxious when sleeping alone when you are away from home.
- Dog beds are easier to wash if your dog has an accident, has fleas or is just plain dirty or stinky after rolling around outside.
- Ultimately, you both will likely have a better night's sleep.
Bottom line, dogs need their own bed, and if you have a few spread throughout the house that's even better. Check out the Cultured Wags Swag collection of Pet Beds, and give your furbaby the throne(s) they deserve.
