With dogs and especially new puppies, the inevitable usually happens- something gets broken or chewed and then those guilty eyes make you forget about it instantly. The simple solution is to either move valuables away from danger zones or simply buy things that are resistant to little rascals. A plastic dog bed should be top of the list.
More often than not, dogs will chew their own things first as they now it’s allowed. However temptation takes over most of the time and they seek other items to chew. Puppies that are teething are worst- anything and everything becomes a target. Plastic dog beds are a great idea because the animal will recognise its own space and keep attention there. The plastic is resistant to chewing along with any number of bangs, bashes and crashes.
Dog owners will generally find plastic dog beds to be much cheaper than other designs such as wicker, metal or wood. For those who need to count every penny, you certainly won’t break the bank and you may even save enough money to get some blankets and pillows for the bed, along with some dog treats and toys!
Plastic dog beds come in a range of sizes, from extra small for breeds like Cavalier King Charles Spaniels to enormous for big boys like Great Danes. While some owners like to buy a number of beds as the dog grows, it’s more advisable to buy one bed for a fully grown animal and keep it. Not only will the dog not become confused every time a new bed is brought in, it’s kind of cute seeing a little put get comfortable in a big bed.
Don’t worry about colour either, as plastic beds come in pretty much all colours of the rainbow. For some creative owners, there are even beds that can be customised by painting. Although the dog won’t be able to tell the difference, or necessarily care, adding a bit of colour can really brighten up the space the bed will go in!
Plastic dog beds are the most popular choice because they are resistant to chewing, are cheaper than most others, and are quite colourful. So if you need to take action to stop your pup chewing your best shoes, or need somewhere for your old reliable to get comfy, a plastic dog bed won’t let you down.
