Have you ever come home only to find your dog sleeping sprawled out on your bed? You put a gate in his way, he jumped over it with such ease. You put a door in his way, he scratched it until it looked like there wasn't a door there. You took him outside and somehow to your surprise he managed to get back in the house and into your bed. If you have had these problems don't worry you aren't alone. Many people find that their dogs spend more time in their beds than they do. What is a pet owner to do?
The simplest answer and the most logical is to give him another place to sleep in and one that will be a more viable option at that. It's time to go out and get the Cadillac of dog beds. These beds are specifically designed to look and feel like a real bed. They are so convincing you might find yourself sleeping in it. It's the only way to begin the training of your pet to learn that he isn't to sleep in a bed that isn't his.
These beds are a spectacular display. The feature such things as pillows for your pet to sleep on to high sides if he rather feel safe and secure while curling up to take a long nap. They even have beds that are made to look like dog houses. Before you go dragging it outside, it is made of all fabric and made for the indoors.
First thing you need to do is measure your pet to make sure the bed that you buy isn't too big or too small. Measure him from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail and from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet. This will give you an accurate measurement to use when you are out buying his bed.
The key to taking your pet off your bed is to teach him or trick him which ever you prefer that this will be his new bed. You need to make him sleep in his new bed which over time will train him to associate his place to sleep with his new bed. This is the quickest way to stop those surprise visits to your bed from your friend.
Although it is the most assured way of knowing your pet will love the bed you get you cant always get in your car with your dog and run around to all the stores. Your best bet is to go online and check out all the options you have to choice from. Knowing what he wants and his measurements will give you a great chance of picking the right one quick.
