New In Australia – Petzone Plus Heated Companion Dog Beds

Thermozone, an Australian maker and distributor of heating and cooling products, has announced its new line of Petzone Plus Heated Companion dog beds. The product range will initially be available in Australia and New Zealand, at pet supply stores and on the Petzone online store.

 This line of heated pet beds is designed for dogs and cats alike, and will provide therapeutic benefits, especially when it is cold and wet outside. When it’s warmer, the bed can be turned over for a cooling effect.

Safety and comfort were key considerations in the design. A built-in thermostat, part of the Pet Sense thermal control system, makes sure that the heat is evenly distributed, and  a thermal fuse disables the power in case of problems.

Orthopedic Dog & Pet Beds

Arthritis is a common joint problem that many dogs suffer from. If remained untreated, it may lead to complications like hips dysplasia. While many dog owners believe that this problem surfaces on older dogs, but the truth is that arthritis starts even during puppyhood if they are not given proper support during sleep. Wise dogs owners aware of the benefits of an orthopedic dog bed would benefit from getting one for their puppies, and not only when their dogs start suffering from arthritis.

Getting an orthopedic dog bed is not a difficult task as there are a number of beds to choose from these days. Each bed comes with its own special designs to help ease the dog’s pain and discomfort and at the same time provide the dogs with the support they need. Some orthopedic beds for offer “egg crate” bases, which massages the dogs at their stress points and reduce pressure at the dogs’ joints as they sleep therefore help ease the pain and discomfort they suffer from.

What makes a good orthopedic bed is the filling of the bed. Most orthopedic pet beds are filled with foam, which has the ability to conform to the dog’s body. Foam is higher in density and therefore is able to retain its shape. This helps to ensure that your dog does not sleep on a “sunken” bed. At www.doghouses.com, you are even able to find dog beds that are fitted with a double layer of orthopedic foams, providing extra support to even the larger dogs.      

Innovative bed makers have also invented thermo orthopedic beds to keep the bed surface warm at all times. The heat generated may also help reduce dogs’ pain and discomfort at their joints if they are suffering from arthritis. Dog owners may want to explore such beds at www.orvis.com.

     

Size is not a problem when it comes to getting the right bed to accommodate your dog. On www.petcarecentral.com, you will be able to find a number of dog beds in various sizes from 20” x12” to 46”x 28”. If convenience is your main concern, then you would certainly be attracted to the orthopedic dog beds featured on www.puplife.com as these beds are embedded in a zipper bag hence allowing you to remove the cover for easy washing. Apart from the double layer of foam, the orthopedic dog beds at www.puplife.com also come with a cedar base making then more durable.

     

Frequent travelers will find the orthopedic crate bed appealing as their dogs can sleep comfortably in the luxury of their own crates. Even dogs with arthritis can afford to travel through far journeys with such beds.

Since prevention is always better than cure, get your dog an orthopedic dog bed to help your dog stay away from arthritis, in addition to the comfort and support your pup deserves.

Custom Dog Beds | Customized Pet Bed

Even though there are hundreds of different types of dog beds available in the markets, with varying styles, designs, and level of comfort; you may still not find that perfect dog bed for your pet. In such a situation, custom dog beds are a great alternative.

Customized dog beds are the best option for those dog owners who cannot find a ready dog bed that suits their pet just right. Perhaps the style of bed that you like is not sized properly for your dog, or it may not have adequate support or softness, or maybe you just do not like the looks of any dog beds that you have come across. With customized dog beds, you can do away with all these problems.

Here are some ways in which you can customize your dog beds:

1) Size: This is the main reason that dog owners go for custom dog beds. If not sized right, the bed may be too big or too small for your dog, which is not conducive to good sleep. Thus, instead of opting for an incorrect size, go in for a custom dog bed that is sized perfectly for your dog. Not just in length and width, but the dog bed will be sized to the right height too.

2) Cushions and Mattresses: You can choose whether you want a stiffed cushion with the custom dog bed or you want to go in for a mattress. In addition to being sized for the bed frame, you can also specify how much thickness you require.

3) Frame Materials: Depending on the size and the weight of your pet, you can choose different materials such as wood, aluminum, PVC etc for the frame of the dog bed. How durable and long lasting you need the bed to be will also determine your choice of materials.

In addition to the above, you can also choose various colors, designs, and patterns for the dog bed. The mattress or cushion can even be of the orthopedic variety for old or injured pets.

www.orvis.com is a great site for custom dog beds. Along with having a phenomenal collection to choose from, this site also offers you the option of personalizing the dog bed with your pet’s name.
