A pet teepee doesn’t just look adorable but also offers a good way to give pets their own private space. Dogs especially love them because it gives them the same feeling of safety and comfort akin to a cave or dog hideout. To find the right teepee, here are details you should consider:
Just like a crate or dog bed, correctly sizing your dog’s teepee is critical. Generally, teepees for small to medium-sized dogs like Yorkies and Frenchie’s should be around 52-62cm per side. Larger dogs like Beagles and Corgis should have 74-84cm on each side, while even larger breeds like Labradors and Australian Shepherds should have around 92cm.
The material of your teepee won’t just affect your dog’s comfort, but also how easily you can keep it clean. Generally, tents made mostly of cotton canvas are ideal because they’re durable, easy to clean and breathable organic construction. Along with a canvas dog bed and wooden poles, you have a teepee that your dog can enjoy for a very long time.
Find something that’s easy to set up, but not too easy for your dog to dismantle with just a little nudge. Depending on whether you plan on setting it aside often, tool-free assembly would be ideal.
Your dog needs to like the bed that the teepee comes with. Otherwise, they’ll just ignore it. Even luxury dog beds will be snubbed if it isn’t the right softness and shape to keep your pup cosy.
Although design is definitely an important consideration, your priority should be to find a dog teepee that’s compatible for your pet. Plus, make sure you find one that’s durable and easy to keep clean. When you choose the right teepee, it could quickly become your pup’s favourite space.
