Extra Large Dog Beds For The Bigger Boys In Your Family!


Extra large dog beds are meant for the bigger boys. When you have a sizeable dog serving you as a loyal companion, it is up to you to give him a bed he can relax on. He needs a bed that allows him to stretch to his full length…if he is forced to cram his length in a small bed, his skeletal system will suffer…and you will have a dog that is unable to move due to his impaired skeletal system.

Generally, dogs that are bigger tend to be prone to various bone and joint related problems as they grow older. And if forced to make do with a bed smaller than the one they need, these joint pains and bone problems can manifest even in their early years. To avoid these issues, it is always a good idea to get a bed that is the correct size for your dog.

Extra large beds are meant for bigger dogs like:

  • Retrievers
  • German Shepherds
  • St. Bernard’s
  • Great Danes

Your dog watches over your family, guards your home diligently and is a loyal companion, constant at your side. All for a good home, comfortable sleeping arrangements, food…and of course love. You can show your love for your dog by ensuring that his resting time is comfortable.

A bed is where your dog will:

  • Curl up to sleep
  • Relax and lounge
  • Have a friendly squabble with the other canines in the family

Vets recommend beds that support the skeletal system, mould to the contours of his body so that no part of him is unsupported and eliminate issues that bring on problems like:

  • Joint pain
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Arthritis
  • Elbow disease
  • Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD)
  • Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD)

But when you buy your big boy a big bed, there are certain considerations that you should remember:

  • Get a bed that is at least a foot from the floor – it will keep the cold from the floor from getting to your dog.
  • Make sure the bed is skid free underneath – or each time your dog jumps onto his bed it will skid. It might even cause an accident.
  • The bed should have a machine washable cover – because there is every chance that your dog might have an ‘accident’ that gets the bed wet with water, or other bodily fluids.
  • The foam should be firm and not turn lumpy after use…that will defeat the entire purpose of getting your dog a bed that supports his skeletal system.

Now that you have the pointers for buying a dog bed that fits your gem of a dog, get him the best possible bed to ensure his wellbeing. And given the extra large dog beds that have flooded the market, getting your dog one that is just perfect for him shouldn’t be an issue.
