Choosing the dog cot bed is much easier if you have the following points in mind! Are you going to place the bed in a box? A rectangular bed that fits the box is necessary. Some dogs prefer beds reinforced with boxes, others uncomfortable or difficult access. Are you going to use the bed for camping or in the yard? If so, you want the bed to be water resistant and suitable for outdoor use. Permeability is a very important feature to consider.
Keep in mind that the dog cot bed is made of a resistant material. Some dogs are prone to scratching the cover so we will choose a material that does not easily tear. And that protects the inner padding. It is essential that this case is easy to remove. And can be put in the washing machine for greater comfort and hygiene.
For puppies and dogs with a tendency to bite everything you should never use beds or blankets with easy access to any type of filling. It is common to bite the inside and this can cause intestinal obstruction if swallowed. Older, sick dogs and dogs of giant breeds require extra support, and can benefit a lot from orthopedic dog cot bed, anti-decubitus mattresses and thermal mattresses.
