Why Large Dogs Need Jumbo Dog Beds

Health

Just like humans, larger dogs mean larger stuff, including the beds they sleep in.

Since large dogs have heavier bodies, regular dog beds do not provide adequate support. When a large dog falls asleep, the typical dog bed sinks and dogs can sense the cold, wet floor. To help large dogs get a more restful sleep, pet owners need to purchase sizeable dog-specific dog beds usually sturdy and durable enough. Sturdy dog beds help support large dogs’ joints and pressure points; durable dog beds can withstand the digging and chewing of large furry kids.

Cleanliness

Despite owners’ efforts to diligently sweep and vacuum floors, mud and dirt brought back from outside by large dogs can stain couches, carpets, beds, etc. In addition, large and giant dogs can make hard-earned weekends miserable with their drool, hair shedding problems and urine output. If they have their dog bed, that can significantly reduce the owner’s cleaning time.

Above problems also remind pet bedding sellers to communicate with manufacturers to produce giant dog beds. Be sure to increase the dog beds easy to clean or even replace the function of alternative bed covers.

Dogs Need Their Own Space

A dog bed all to itself for giant furries can make them feel safe and at home. They can indulge in extra-large chew sticks in their dog bed during snack time. If they don’t have their dog bed, they may choose to eat in their owner’s bed or on the living room couch, which often causes more terrible cleaning problems. Besides, giving giant dogs a separated place to sleep can improve the quality of sleep for pet owners without having to worry about sleeping until midnight and restless dogs sleeping, leaving themselves little room to sleep.

Small Sofa 

Traditional family sofas can not stand a massive dog; the width of the couch is often shorter than the legs of large dogs, so large dogs have to curl up on the sofa and can not be free to change sleeping positions. If the couch is fit, pet parents will have to choose to sit on the floor to make way for the giant fur baby.
