Dog's Bed and Bedding
Ideally every dog should have his own bed.
And from the owner's perspective, washability has always been the ultimate
priority. Nowadays, it is easy to get a plastic bed which is not only
cheap but also easily cleaned. However, to ensure that they provide the
comfort, there must be soft bedding.
There are several advantages when it comes
to using a mobile cage as a bed for your puppy. This is especially when
you have guests to the house who may not appreciate dog hairs all over
The completely collapsible cage is useful
for traveling with the dog as you could fold and take it with you.
However, the "sky kennel" type might also be suitable as it is fastened by
using nuts and bolts around the middle, allowing the cage to be divided in
half for traveling. When not traveling, it could be fastened to provide a
more permanent kennel for the dog to use at home.
As for bedding material, there are many choices. And
the most appropriate from the hygiene point of view is the veterinary
bedding which is comfortable and warm. It is sold under multiple brand
names and is made of synthetic fur with a strong woven base. These
veterinary beds may be machine washed and they stay dry since moisture
goes straight through them. They are also long lasting and resistance to
being chewed up, unless your dog is really determined. It comes in a big
piece and you can cut it to any size as required.
The next best dog's bedding material is
cushions filled with polystyrene granules as it is very comfortable for
all dogs. However, they are harder to clean and wash unlike the veterinary
bedding. Moreover, it is easier to be damaged by the dog's chewing.
Alternatively, the cheapest bedding material for dogs is to use old
blanket but ensure that you wash them regularly.
