Medium Dog Beds
Dogs come in all sizes so one consideration you need to keep in mind in picking a good comfortable dog bed is the size of your dog. An orthopedic dog bed might be a necessary option if your dog is older and has arthritis or other joint problems. If you want to be cost conscious you also need to remember that the larger the bed the higher the cost. That being said and taking into consideration the bed’s size a pet owner might also want to think about saving in the long run. This is especially important in today’s economy. Buying the most economical or cheapest bed may no longer be the best bet. Buying a good quality medium dog bed and getting it at a good price is definitely an attractive option.
Defining dogs by size is generally done by weight so some are taller or longer than others of the same weight category. Medium size dogs fall into the 26 to 50 pound range. A few of the AKC dog breeds that are considered to be of medium size are Australian Cattle Dogs, Border Collies, Bassett Hounds, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Keeshonds, Portuguese Water Dogs and Whippets. It’s easy to see that dogs of similar weight can be of different sizes. A good rule of thumb for a medium pet bed would be in the 30” Length x 20” Width range. If your dog sleeps in a crate then the measurements of the crate makes getting the right size easy.
The #1 consideration when making your purchase should be your dog’s comfort. And the filling and cover material are big factors in comfort. The filling should be firm and made of a soft and springy material such as foam pieces or poly fill that will not flatten out after extended use. A bed with filling at least 3” to 5” thick is ideal. Covers come in a wide variety of shapes, colors and materials. Nylon makes for a waterproof cover and of course there are the more plush materials too. If your dog is a puppy or a grown pet that just likes to chew make sure the bed’s cover is chew resistant and not an easy material to eat!
