Guide to Dogit Dog Beds
Beds are a very important component of your dog’s life. It is where he/she goes when they want to curl up and sleep, but it can also be used as a piece of training equipment in some special cases.
Soft Dog Beds – The soft bed is probably the simplest type on offer and most closely resembles human beds. They are usually made from cotton or fleece materials and have an inner lining containing foam, memory foam, or ‘wool’ fillings as the main support.
These beds can be found in three different shapes
The ‘flat’ type is about 2ft by 4ft and around 5 inches thick. The ‘cubbyhole’ type is a large flat base with a raised area on one side for your dog to rest its head. They are most often used as orthopedic beds, where the raised part of the bed helps keep pressure off your dog’s joints when resting or lying down. The most common form is the ‘biscuit tin’ shape. This has a round base with a hollowed-out circular mattress that curves up into a steep-sided, bowl-shaped structure that offers good neck support.
The Cuddle Cradle Dog Bed is one of our most popular products, so much so that there are few dogs who have not tried it out at least once! It has a unique combination of comfort and support for your pet’s needs. The super plush microbead filling provides the ultimate in luxurious sleep experience while the orthopedic base gives firm under-frame support which prevents pets from sinking into their bed when lying or reclining. Our extremely dense fillings mean that this bed will maintain its shape even after years of use.
The bed cover is easily removable and machine washable (at 30 degrees) for simple weekly cleaning of your pet’s bed. The secure zipper ensures that the filling stays completely in place during use, even if the cover becomes slightly disheveled over time or if your dog likes to play rough with his/her beds!
