How to choose the right dog bed and dog bedding

Choosing the right bed and bedding for your dog

Choosing the right dog bed for your dog is not as easy as it seems. You wouldn’t believe how many factors there are to consider, some are:

* Is your dog destructive?
* Is your dog elderly and/or have health issues?
* Do you have a large, medium or small dog?
* Does he like to stretch out or curl up?
* Does your dog overheat or feel the cold?

So where do you start? Obviously you have to consider the size of your dog, but also his personality. Does he chew up anything fluffy, scratch and bed make? Also, it is necessary to take into account the amount of space you have in your home. Are you looking for something to blend in with your living room furniture and décor?

Paws Plus One has a selection of mattress beds including waterproof mats for use in the car or for working dogs and those dogs that come home wet and muddy.

Smaller dogs and toy breeds are more likely to feel the cold and would appreciate warmer bedding and blankets. To make it extra special, personalised dog blankets are available through Paws Plus One website. All dogs like warmth and these blankets are good quality, lovely soft easy care fleece. Ideal present for christmas or a doggy birthday!

The raised dog bed is ideal for dogs who stay outside in kennels or a working area to keep them off the cold floor. They are easy to assemble so great idea for camping or caravaning holidays. Our working cocker spaniel loves his raised bed. They come in all sizes to accommodate larger dogs as well and are sturdy and well made and can be
