Decades ago, dog beds were just plain beds that serve only proper surfaces for dogs to sleep on. There were neither fancy designs nor innovative functions to pamper dogs. The increasing popularity in owning pet dogs had contributed vastly to the revolution of pet beds. Today, owners have the freedom and luxury to choose from the wide selection of dog beds, one which will best suit their needs, preferences, budget, decor, breed and size. In fact, it is the different demands and needs of both dog owners and dogs that have resulted in the production of many modern dog beds.
Orthopedic dog beds, heart beat beds, travel beds, warmer beds, cool beds, elevated dog beds are some of the modern style beds that have been selling like hot cakes on various websites such as www.doghouses.com, www.dog.com, www.sitstay.com, www.petco.com, www.petcarecentral.com or even www.orvis.com.
The design and function of a dog bed also play a strong role when it comes to making a buying decision. Modern design dog beds like the ones by Bowser, Caddis and Petmate offer some very contemporary and chic designs as their dog beds are made from luxurious fabrics such as micro velvet, suede and even leather. The dog beds are available in creamy earthy colors such as Olive and Khaki, which work to project a classy look simultaneously blending harmoniously with most décor.
The revolution of dog beds has also seen more additional functions. There are a number of orthopedic beds made from convoluted foam like the ones by Orvis, Beasley and Caddis to help ease the pain and discomfort of dogs suffering from arthritis or hips dysplasia. Some beds come with a “heart” or warmer embedded into them for greater orthopedic benefits.
With a keen understanding the hectic lifestyle of the modern society, modern pet bed manufacturers have designed these items for easy maintenance. Almost all modern dog beds are fitted with zippers and covers that are machine washable. In fact, the GelPedic gel dog bed only requires a wipe with a moist cloth to get it cleaned up.
