What Every Large Breed Dog Bed Should Have...
A large breed dog bed has to withstand a lot more wear and tear than a bed made for Yorkies. And with large breeds it's also much more important to choose a good quality bed.
Well, think about when you go away somewhere for a few nights. Have you ever had the misfortune to sleep in a really uncomfortable bed?
You're tossing and turning all night, trying to get comfortable, only catching small snippets of sleep. And even that is only light dozing.
The cause of the tossing and turning and discomfort is the 'push/pull' battle going on between you and your mattress!
Your body weight is pushing down into the mattress, and the mattress is trying to spring back. This leads to pressure points building up on your joints, and can become uncomfortable.
The same thing happens with large dogs. And because of their size and weight, they can be more susceptible than smaller or medium breed dogs.
But it's not just the quality of sleep that's the issue. The wrong sort of mattress could also potentially affect your dog's joints, therefore affecting her mobility.
So what should every large breed dog bed have?
These problems can be resolved with a memory foam dog bed.
Memory foam was developed by NASA as a way of reducing the G-force pressure on astronauts' bodies! And hospitals have been using memory foam mattresses for burns patients for years.
It works by gently moulding itself around the contours of your dog's body, relieving the pressure built up around her joints.
This means less tossing and turning, therefore better quality sleep, and all the benefits that go with that.
But arguably more importantly, reducing the pressure on your dogs' joints gives her a better chance of staying in good shape for longer.
