Write a Comment
Given that your dog may spend as much as 18 hours a day sleeping, wouldn't he be more comfortable on a round sheepskin dog bed? Oh, sure, dogs can fall asleep anywhere, but a round sheepskin dog bed offers features that other beds can't—starting with that sheepskin.

Sheepskin is unique in that it helps keep your dog warm in winter, and cool in the summer. Soft, natural wool dries quickly, is appealing to look at, and is easy to keep clean. A round sheepskin dog bed can even give a room a ‘homey' feel, especially when it's accompanied by a sleeping dog. And what better place to count sheep that on a round sheepskin dog bed?

Features to Consider in a Round Sheepskin Dog Bed

So what should you consider in a round sheepskin dog bed? Your dog, first of all. Dogs love the feel of sheepskin, and a round sheepskin dog bed will hardly hit the floor before your dog hits the sack. But if you're shopping for a round sheepskin dog bed, here are some features to consider.

You'll want a round sheepskin dog bed that is slightly elevated, to keep drafts from chilling your pet. This could mean a thicker bed, or a slightly raised platform, or a basket to hold the bed. A round sheepskin dog bed should conserve your dog's body heat, protect bony protuberances and be easy to clean. Round sheepskin dog beds are washable (remove and wash the cover, and simply air out the ‘mattress') durable and they resist moisture. With a little care, a round sheepskin dog bed will provide your pet with comfortable sleeping quarters for years to come.

Shopping Tips for Buying a Round Sheepskin Dog Bed

When choosing a round sheepskin dog bed, consider your dog's size and choose one that will fit him as an adult. Consider a round sheepskin dog bed that fits in his crate to make his “home” more comfortable. When testing the bed filling, it should be springy, not compacted, after repeated use. Choose sturdy materials that can't be ripped or consumed by your dog. Donut or nesting contour shaped round sheepskin dog beds fit around your dog to let him nestle in the center. Some round sheepskin dog beds have an inner wrap that keeps moisture from getting into, and ruining core filling.

The Ideal Round Sheepskin Dog Bed

Your best choice in a round sheepskin dog bed is one that is sized to fit your adult dog. It should spring back when compressed--evidence of comfort and durability. A round sheepskin dog bed shouldn't contain materials that can be ripped and consumed by your dog. Make sure your round sheepskin dog bed comes with a removable cover that can be washed. Look for special detergents made especially for sheepskin. These detergents are designed to protect the wool and help it last longer.

A round sheepskin dog bed should keep your dog slightly elevated off the floor, and out of drafts. Finally, a round sheepskin dog bed should come with one essential accessory—your sleepy dog.
