Why Furbabies Need Their Own Bed


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:

  1. Dogs need a place to rest that is specifically for them and they can have it all to themselves.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 
  4. 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.
  5. You won't have to constantly clean pet hair from your bed, and your bed won't have pet odors.
  6. Dog beds are lower to the ground as opposed to human beds that require the dog to jump up, which may cause injury.
  7. Your dog is less likely to become anxious when sleeping alone when you are away from home.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
