Even if your dog is considered part of the family there is probably a fine line between the furniture and your buddy's comfort. If allowed, a dog will make himself right at home on beds, the couch, arm chairs and other furniture in the home and though he means no harm his claws, drool and fur can combine to cause quite an unpleasant appearance.
Keep your bed mattresses and blankets, couches and chairs free from dog hair and odor by providing your dog with his very own pillow, futon or bed so he can relax in comfort. Indoor dog beds are made with super comfortable pillows and fabrics so your dog won't even miss the old couch. Available in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and colors a well made indoor dog bed can save your home from your pet's fur and fleas. The obvious reason for giving a dog his own bed is to prevent him from getting on your furniture but it also gives him a sense of having his own place. If you notice your pet has a preferred place for resting simply put a round, square or rectangular indoor dog bed in that space and your pet will instantly take to the warm and soft comforts of the cushioned bed. It may take a few days for a pet to become familiar with his new bed and use it regularly but once he does he will know that is where he sleeps and the people use the couch and beds.
With the boom in pet accessories over the past few years the products being designed are more luxurious and functional that ever before. Dog beds, futons and pillows now feature cotton slip covers, poly fill inserts and stain, moisture and odor resistant fabrics to ensure a comfortable and pleasant place for your pooch to rest. Today's dog beds also feature a wide variety of colors and patterns to match specific interior décor as well as your pet's personality. Instead of being an eyesore you try to kick into the laundry room, a modern day pet bed, futon or pillow can now be included in traditional or contemporary living and family room décor.
