Dog bed covers act as protection for your pet’s resting place against urine, dirt, hair, saliva, and other things that can harbor bacteria. Our furry companions spend hours laying on their beds and take comfort in knowing it is there after a long day of playing outside. This puts it at risk for wear and tear, as well as the buildup of grime.
In order to keep their beds clean and healthy, invest in the best dog covers you can find. Below, we talk about the top benefits of bed sheets for dogs, what features you should look for, and our most recommended dog bed covers.
Top 3 Benefits Of Getting Bed Sheets For Dogs
They prolong the bed’s lifespan. By getting a durable and preferably waterproof dog bed cover, you can lessen the risk of lacerations and different kinds of liquid seeping in too often. You will also not need to wash or replace the bed itself, which can greatly prolong its lifespan.
They are easier and faster to clean up. Getting a cover for dog beds can help for an easier and much faster clean up as most materials can be thrown into the washing machine and put in the dryer – something you cannot do with a full dog bed.
They protect your canine and help keep them healthy. Bed sheets for dogs act as your first line of defense against bacteria build up whenever your pup is resting inside the house. By regularly cleaning their sleeping place, you help fight off germs, worms, mosquitoes, and other things that can be harmful to your pet’s health.
What To Look For When Getting A Cover For Dog Beds
Go for waterproof. One of the most useful and practical factors in getting a dog bed cover is making sure it is waterproof. A waterproof dog bed cover not only keeps the inner material dry and clean, but it also makes for easier clean up by just wiping off surface dirt and liquid.
Get the perfect size. It is essential that the cover you choose is not too big, too small, or of different shape than the actual bed. By getting the right fit, you ensure that its features are maximized and can be used for a very long time.
Extra large dog bed covers may be trickier to look for than travel-sized ones, but we have a handy list below if bigger sizes is what you are after!
Keep comfort in mind. The best dog bed covers are comfortable as they are functional. Consider getting a soft (yet durable) material that will soothe your dog and help them get ample rest each time.
Aim for heavy-duty and durability. Dogs naturally love to chew, dig, and scratch surfaces. Because of this, invest in a dog bed cover that is durable enough to withstand some beating. Heavy-duty material is a great investment as it can save you from having to replace the cover (or even the bed) every so often.
Consider one with medical benefits. If you have an old and/or sickly dog, consider investing in a dog bed cover that can cater to their medical needs.
