Small Dog Beds
According to the 2011 APPA’s (American Pet Products Association) National Pet Owners Survey, 62% of all US households, or 72.9 million, own a pet, of which 46.3% own one or more dogs. The 46.3 million dog owning households amounts to 78,200,000 (78.2 million) dogs! What do these statistics have to do with small dog beds you ask? For the answer to your question let’s drill down a little further.
To date the AKC recognizes 175 breeds. Of these pure breeds 58 would be considered small or extra small. And none of these figures include mixed breed dogs, a large percentage of which would fall in the under 10 and up to 20 pound size categories. According to the above survey that would be approximately 25.8 million dogs that are considered to be small in the U.S. alone.
A few breeds that fit into the extra small under 10 pound category are the Chihuahua, Maltese, Papillon, and the Yorkshire Terrier. Some small 10 to 20 pound category breeds are the Pug, Boston Terrier, Cairn Terrier and the Dachshund. And of course we can’t forget the great little Heinz 57 dogs!
The small dog beds are made from a variety of covering materials including fleece, absorbent micro-fiber, canvas and micro-suede to name just a few. There are several styles to choose from such as the oval bed with bolster, orthopedic beds with memory foam, elevated beds, nylon/vinyl covered water and air fill cool beds and electric heated beds. A few popular and well known brands are DogPedic, K&H, Orvis and Majestic. There are many other pet supply brands that also offer quality and reasonable prices.
It stands to reason that not all of these dog’s owners are going to purchase their pets a bed of their own. But for those that do, buying a small dog bed instead of one that would accommodate a large animal will result in a considerable savings. And in this day and time a few dollars saved is few dollars that could be spent elsewhere. That’s why Dog House Town is here. To save you some serious money on your dog bed and other pet needs.
