To choose the perfect heated dog beds, you have to look at a few different factors. For one thing, you want to look at the type of dog that you have and make sure that you need a heated bed. Many people do not realize that their dogs may not get as cold as they do. Dog’s bodies do not sweat except a little bit through their paws, and they use panting to lower their body temperature.
This means that many dogs’ body temperature stays pretty high while they are sleeping. Plus, there are certain types of coats that do not protect against the chill in the same way that other coats do. Dogs that have very thin hair or very smooth hair may need a heated dog bed. You also should be aware of your own habits. Many people choose to lower their thermostat overnight by a great deal and use blankets to stay warm. These are usually the situations where a heated dog bed is best. Finally, you want to make sure that the bed is comfortable, made out of good material, allows for your dog’s style of sleeping, and is the appropriate size.
