The Benefits of an Elevated Dog Bed

An elevated dog bed can have many benefits for your dog. He won't have to sleep on the chilly floor in the winter, and the elevated bed allows cooling air circulation in the summer. Elevated beds are also more comfortable for dogs suffering from arthritis, who might have problems standing, sitting and lying down. Here are some of the benefits of an elevated dog bed.

Elevated Beds are More Comfortable for Your Dog

In an elevated bed, your dog won't have to sleep on the cold floor in the winter time. In the summer, air can circulate under the elevated bed, keeping him cool. Your dog will be less likely to try to get up on the furniture if he has a comfortable elevated bed.

If you have multiple dogs of different sizes, an elevated bed for the larger dog can help keep the smaller dog from intruding. If your dog suffers from arthritis or other joint disorders, and has difficulty standing, sitting or lying down, an elevated bed can make it easier for him to get into a resting position.

Elevated Beds Protect Your Dog

Elevated dog beds decrease the amount of debris that might find its way into or under the dog bed, causing discomfort. Your dog will rest better, have more energy and be more active.

An elevated dog bed can also help to protect your dog from flea allergy dermatitis. Dogs with flea allergies can develop this type of dermatitis from having too much contact with fleas. Fleas can only jump six or seven inches vertically, so an elevated dog bed that is more than seven inches from the floor can keep fleas out of your dog's sleeping area. This will help avoid flea allergy dermatitis and also make your dog's sleep more restful.

Elevated dog beds can also help your dog escape other types of insects that might be on the floor or ground. If your dog sleeps outside, an elevated dog bed can help keep him warm and dry in bad weather. Some elevated dog beds are easily portable; foldable ones can be taken along on camping trips and family vacations, so that your dog can continue to enjoy the familiarity of his own bed far from home.

Elevated Dog Beds Are Relaxing

Elevated dog beds provide a more comfortable sleeping environment for your dog, enabling him to relax more. Elevated dog beds are sturdy, and most have rubber feet so that they won't slide across the floor or ground if your dog jumps into them quickly. Some dog beds even come with coil-spring mattresses for maximum orthopedic support.

Elevated Dog Beds Are Convenient

An elevated dog bed can be more convenient than ordinary beds. Portable, fold-up beds are easy to take along with you on camping trips and vacations, so your dog can have the comfort of a familiar bed while traveling, as well as added protection from weather and insects. Elevated dog beds come in all styles to match your decor; some even have drawers in them so you can store your dog's toys and other accessories.
