Sometimes it’s best to let sleeping dogs lie – but not in a bed older than Lassie.
Let’s think about this. We all change our bedsheets regularly, right? (OK, even we have our tails between our legs on this one.) Imagine not doing that, and frolicking seven days a week, barefooted. Rolling in the grass. Digging in the dirt. Wrestling with your friends. After all this, you skip the shower and snuggle into a floor-level bed, dozing into dreamland and drooling the whole night through. While maybe this sounds like your summer before uni, it’s not so fun when you consider what may be sniffing around – or in – your mattress, now as flat as a picnic table.
If you guessed that story was about your dog, good boy.
And if you’d like more reasons to clean or buy a new doggy bed, read on:
Let’s face it. It’s easy to forget to clean or change-out your dog’s bed. Spot never complains about a dusty dust-ruffle, and much prefers the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ approach to life. Unfortunately what he doesn’t see can hurt him – and even more so than missing a Lady and the Tramp marathon: Fleas.
Noooooo. There, we said it – and in slow-mo, for effect. That one flea your dog piggybacked from the park can lay up to 50 eggs a day, in his bed. If all those fleas hatched and multiplied at the same rate, your home could have nearly 15,000 eggs in one month. Repeat: Noooooo.
So, that’s why it’s spot-on to clean or replace your dog’s bed after some time, while making sure your furry friend is up-to-date with his flea treatment.
Nobody likes a bed that likens a coffee table – and even that’s probably more comfy than a dog’s bed that has compressed over time. Particularly if you have an old dog, you can’t teach him new tricks when it comes to arthritis. Yelp! So, it’s best to make sure your doggy bed is as soft and comfortable as it is warm – especially during those cold, winter months.
And let’s face it – who doesn’t love new stuff? Surprise your sleepy Shar Pei with a brand new bed – without the wrinkles.
So, you’ve slept on it and decided to buy a new bed for Bobo. Hot dog! We can help you find the dreamiest, comfiest, cosiest bedding known to canines.
- Our new range of doggy beds includes non-slip bases, which won’t scratch your hardwood or vinyl floors. And you know how that doggone mattress can clump up over time? Not this one, thanks to our special inner cushion design.
- Think that’s comfy? Dogs looove to rest their heads on our soft-sided range with extra fluffiness for Fluffy.
- And for all those Chihuahuas who just can’t make up their minds, our square-sided beds include reversible cushions. It’s also why our beds come in not one, but two fashionable colours.
Best of all, our beds are washable. Yip yip, hooray! So you and your dozy Doberman can get some good dog years out of ’em.
