How To Give Your Dog A Good Night’s Sleep Every Single Time Using An Orthopedic Dog Bed
Did you know that your furry buddy can sleep up to 14 hours every single day? That’s right. If your dog can sleep a long, long time, all told, if you were to put together all the times your dog is catching some shut eye, it adds up to a huge chunk of time. This is why it’s crucial for any self respecting dog owner to ensure that their four-legged friend has a comfortable orthopedic dog bed during their precious nap time. I wish I could tell you that a comfortable bed is all you need to ensure that your canine companion will enjoy all the hours of sleep he or she gets every single day. You also have to properly train your pet to sleep in their doggie bed.
It’s important to start early. In fact, I would suggest that the day you bring your cute puppy home, you need to start training him or her to use an orthopedic dog bed. These beds are the healthiest choice because they can prevent the onset of many bone and muscle related health issues in the future. Depending on the breed of your pet, these bone and health issues can be quite painful, inconvenient and may even possibly shorten your pet’s life. To try to minimize the chances of that, you have to train your puppy to use an orthopedic pet bed as soon as possible. While most pet owners focus on picking the right crate, pet playpen, food bowls, pet food, and dog chew toys, most often overlook one of the most important pieces of equipment for optimal back and joint health-the pet’s sleeping surface. Don’t make this mistake. If you do, not only can it have a very negative impact on your pet’s health several years down the road but it can also saddle you with potentially nasty veterinarian bills. Pet surgery, after all, is not cheap.
The best way to do this is to use a dog crate with an orthopedic dog bed. If you put the dog bed inside the crate along with some treats, and if you introduce the treats properly, and you are constantly encouraging your dog, eventually, they would get comfortable lying on the orthopedic dog bed in the crate. The key here is to establish a positive association between the comfort the orthopedic dog bed provides, with the safety and security they instinctively get from sleeping in a crate.
It’s really important to get your dog to start using an orthopedic bed as soon as possible. Regardless of your pet’s sleeping style and schedule, the right bed balances your dog’s weight while your pet is sleeping. This has the overall effect of minimizing or even eliminating stress on your pet’s muscles and bones. With proper training, your pet will naturally desire to sleep on an orthopedic dog bed, and nowhere else.
This puts pressure on you to ensure that your pet is sleeping on the right bed by inculcating the right habits, both on your part and on your dog’s part, so you can save on potentially large veterinarian bills in the future. It’s all about training your dog early on to prefer orthopedic beds.
