If you have a small dog like me, you might wonder whether or not you really need a small dog bed.
I asked myself the very same question when we brought out little guy home.
I wondered if he would really use it and if he really needed it or if it would be a waste of money and space.
While it might not seem like it's necessary, it can actually be a very beneficial thing to have.
Dogs of any size can benefit from a dog bed.
A small bed can give you features that you might not have thought about before but that will pay off for a long time as your little dog becomes a permanent part of your family.
So why should you choose a bed for your dog? Well your dog might have a special spot on your couch or even your bed and maybe he claims a blanket to himself in the household.
But these things do not equal a dedicated bed just for him or her to enjoy.
This can be the best gift you ever get your pooch.
Like people, dog are built on habit.
They want to have their own special place and they will likely take to the same routine day after day.
This also conveniently helps you with the training process.
Because of this, your dog will pick a special place in the home for him when he wants to go away and rest or take a little nap.
If you provide him with his own small dog bed, it will give him just the place to do this and enjoy some time to himself.
There are so many different types, styles and sizes of dog beds to choose from that you can definitely find something to meet your needs.
You may get a round bed, a rectangle bed or a soft pillow-top cushion style bed for your dog.
Small dogs often have more options than large dogs just because it is easier to make beds of different styles in smaller sizes.
You just need to shop around and find something that you and your dog both will enjoy.
Choosing a small dog bed is just one more way for you to show your pooch that he is a valued member of the family and to give him his own little space in the midst of it all.
