We all must know by now that some dogs have hereditary problems when it comes to joint pain and bad hips etc. There is very little to be done about this but we can make life a little easier for our pets if we get them the right kind of dog bed to ease those aching bones.
Orthopedic dog beds are available in single and double size. Some are literally built like a sofa so the dog has the feeling of having his own furniture! Others will be mattress style but with a pillow at one end so that he can sprawl out at his own leisure. As if this were not enough, some dog beds have heater pads or cooler pads built in to make life that much more comfortable for the pooch.
For the older dog or for one who has had some kind of injury and is recovering, get a memory-foam mattress that will mould itself to the dog’s shape. Of course, all these are made in appropriate sizes to fit the breed so take a look at which one will suit best.
The great thing about these beds too is that they are transportable. People have taken to leaving their dogs in a pet hotel these days. Or, if they so wish, the family can find a pet friendly environment in a private home. DogVacay is a site which brings interested parties together and even offers training for those who want to take up hosting for dogs. At the moment they cover several areas around Southern California and its popularity means that it will soon be available all over the country. If you want to train to be a home dog boarding host, go to the site now and register to be considered as a suitable venue for someone’s beloved pet.
