What is the definition of a luxury bed for pets? To me, any bed that combines comfort and an appealing look, is a luxury bed. To fit this definition, it is not enough for a bed to look cute and appealing, but comfort is essential here. When you imagine a luxury human bed for yourself in your mind, you’re most likely imagining a beautiful bed that is very comfortable. You imagine a bed made in high quality – definitely not a cheap one. We should apply the same thought process to beds for our precious dog or cat.
The pet supplies industry made huge advancements in the last couple of decades, as awareness of our pets’ needs increased. 35 years ago, the rest area my father provided for our black poodle was basically was nothing; he let him sleep on the grass in our backyard. Today, my aging dog, Zoe, sleeps in a majestic orthopedic bed that’s better than mine, my cats have a bolster bed and a snuggle bed. The mindset of people in regards to their pets’ needs has changed tremendously. My father wasn’t a bad person, he just didn’t know any better.
When animals live in the wild, Mother Nature takes care of their needs. When we raise domestic animals – dogs, cats, that live with us, it is absolutely our responsibility to take care of their needs and provide them comfort.
With modern technology on our side, it is not hard to manufacture pet beds that are luxurious and appealing. Any pet bed that provides comfort and is designed thoughtfully is a luxury pet bed. It can be a donut bed, rectangle or round pillow, bolster, snuggle bed, tent, a slipper and so on. It can be a bed for a large dog or for an extra small dog or cat.
There are so many styles to choose from. It is not hard to find a luxurious bed for your pet that will match your home decor style and personal preferences. It is actually quite fun. Please keep in mind, when getting a pet bed for your dog or cat, think about their comfort and their needs first, and only later, consider the style that will fit your home decor style.
