Dogs are a wonderful addition to any home. They are fantastic companions and they act as a security guard at night which inevitably makes you feel safer while you sleep. However, dogs are so loyal that sometimes they take this responsibility a little too far! If you have a dog, then you may find that your faithful companion wakes you up regularly in the night by barking and growling at noises that they shouldn’t need to worry about. The answer may well be found in choosing the right dog beds.
There are many noises that occur in the night – for example creaking floorboards as well as the odd visitor to the garden such as birds and foxes. If your dog is super-sensitive then he or she may feel the need to alert you to every little noise that happens throughout the night. This is particularly dangerous because, just as the boy who cried wolf, one day your dog’s barking may mean you should have serious cause for concern.
You need to find a way to make your dog as comfortable as possible through the night so that he or she can drop off into a deep sleep, so it’s a great idea to have a look at all of the different types of dog beds that are available. The more snug your dog feels, the more likely he or she is not going to wake you throughout the night. Make sure he or she has a blanket so that they feel cosy, and it’s also a good idea to find them a spot to sleep in where they won’t hear every noise in the garden. For this reason, avoid putting your dog beds near external windows or doors.
There is a dog bed for every different size and shape of dog, and it’s important that you find one that is perfect for your dog. Small dogs will feel uncomfortable in large beds and vice versa, so find one that is slightly bigger than them that they can curl up in and feel protected in.
