If you’re a dog lover, you’ve probably heard of the phrase “let sleeping dogs lie.” This popular saying has been around for decades and is used as a warning to not disturb your dog while he’s resting. While this statement has some truth to it, few people realize what’s really going on when their furry friends are snoozing away. In fact, the effects of interrupted sleep can have far-reaching effects on both you and your dog.
The key to understanding why good quality sleep is so important for pets comes down to something called the circadian rhythm. All living things (including humans) have an internal 24-hour clock that governs functions like hormone levels, body temperature, and other biological processes that affect your health over time. When these systems aren’t functioning properly due to lack of sleep or other factors such as light exposure, they can cause problems like weight gain and make it harder for you or your pet to stay awake during important times throughout the day when energy should be high (i.e., work hours).
When choosing a bed for your pet you should make sure that it is easy to clean. If it’s in an area that is exposed to the elements, a water-resistant cover may be necessary. To save on cleaning products and detergents always choose organic materials.
Here’s how a better dog bed will help you and your best friend:

While it may not seem like a big deal or something that even needs to be on your radar, if you’re investing in furniture and other home decor items to tie your room together, your dog’s bed should be included in this process. Your dog is part of the family, and their bed is an extension of that. Even if no one will be sleeping on it (well maybe they will), it will still play an important role in how your space looks and feels. If you’re having friends over for dinner or hosting a party at your house, they’ll notice when you’ve upgraded to a stylish modern pet bed that fits into the rest of your home decor scheme with ease.
If your dog has physical problems, such as those listed above, he or she will benefit from a supportive bed. There are several types of beds that can help to support your pup’s body and ease discomfort. A heated bed may also be beneficial for certain conditions. Make sure you check with your veterinarian before purchasing any type of special bed for your dog.
