Humans have the option of snuggling up to a loved one or covering themselves with a thermal blanket when the weather becomes too cold for comfort. But what option does your pet have? Do not make the mistake of thinking that a thick coat of fur is all that your dog needs to keep it warm. If you live in a place where temperatures are very low, you need to buy a heated dog bed for your pet to keep it warm and safe.

Heated dog beds can be used by all breeds of dogs. Regardless of whether your dog has a thick coat of fur or is one of the no-hair breeds, it needs extra warmth and heat when the going gets too cold. Many people cover their pets with blankets to provide them with extra heat. But I haven’t known any dog to keep the blanket on all night. They turn and roll about causing their blankets to come off and thus start getting cold all over again. But with heated beds, you won’t have to face such problems.

Heated Dog Bed Features and Benefits

Heated dog beds contain a thermostat, which helps you to adjust the temperature of the bed. Some beds may even contain two thermostats to give you superior heating options. Apart from regular heated beds, you also have the option of buying a bed that has a massage feature. Just as we enjoy a great massage after a tiring day at work, so will your pet love the combination of heat and massage, all built into its own bed!

In addition to keeping your pooch warm, there are beds which can also help their arthritis or aching joints. Heated orthopedic dog beds are the ideal choice in this regard. Along with having a thermostat to control the heat, these beds also contain convoluted orthopedic foam that gives your pet the support that it needs. These beds are great for all dogs, but if your dog is old then a heated orthopedic dog bed is an absolute necessity.

Contrary to what many dog owners believe, heated dog beds are not only required for an older dog but are also very beneficial for dogs which are young and active. Sometimes in their enthusiasm, dogs are known to be too active, which can make their joints ache. Thus, with heating dog beds, you can ensure that your active pet gets all the TLC that it needs for a restful night.
