Raised Dog Bed
A trampoline bed for dogs isn’t really meant for bouncing. They’re just structured similarly to trampolines in order to give dogs an elevated place to sleep.
Why Choose a Trampoline Bed?
By having a raised dog bed, your pup is better protected from the ground’s temperature. This is especially useful in the winter when the floor can feel cold underneath your dog’s belly. This is also beneficial during summer, since the extra ventilation can keep your dog cool and be more comfortable.
Trampoline hammock beds are also less prone to chewing. They’re typically made of a combination of a metal frame and a durable fabric. So, they generally last longer.
How to Choose a Raised Dog Bed?
Before you decide on a raised dog bed, consider the following:
Size of Trampoline Bed
As with any other bed, you need to make sure it’s right for your dog’s size. Give them enough room to lie either on their side or on their belly. Also, they should be able to stand and turn without difficulty.
Off-the-ground dog beds need not be too high. They should just be elevated enough to keep your dog’s belly off the floor. When choosing a raised dog bed, make sure your pup can get off and on it with ease.
The frame itself should be sturdy. Often, they’re made of steel or iron, which are coated to avoid rusting, chipping, and fading. When choosing a frame, check its load capacity and make sure it’s strong enough to carry your dog.
A variety of fabrics can be used for elevated dog beds. However, the most practical ones are synthetic materials that are resistant to fleas and mites. Additionally, mesh fabric is easier to clean and will provide excellent ventilation.
Extra Features Of Off The Ground Dog Beds
Some trampoline hammocks have features that might prove useful, depending on your needs. There are those that come with canopies, which might be useful for outside dog beds. There are also some that conveniently fold for storage or transport.
The dog bed you choose affects the quality of their sleep as well as their temperament. If you choose the right one, an elevated dog bed can be the place where your pet is most comfortable and feels most relaxed.
