The woof side of comfort
Dogs nose friendly materials
According to Randy Kidd, in “Sniffing out the source of our dogs’ remarkable ability to smell” article, the canine sense of smell and his collection of scents is, after all, at least hundreds of times and perhaps more than a million times more accurate and more expansive than humans. Dog noses collect scents by air-scenting (sniffing volatile oils that are traveling in the air) and sniffing the ground. A dog’s nose is ideally made for sniffing. When a dog sniffs, he inhales the scented chemicals into his nasal cavities, where they are trapped in mucus and processed by the sensory cells. Expiration forces air out the side of the nares so that its exit doesn’t interfere with odors still in the air or on the ground.
For this reason FinishBuild suggests you to go for recycled materials, in order to avoid strong odors on his bed, otherwise they might reject it. Even though there are a number of dog beds available that are made from recyclable materials, take a look of the P.L.A.Y. Pet Lifestyle bed, for instance, which is manufactured from recycled plastic bottles.
Beware of those friendly odors that come with your bed´s dog, if your dog is allergic finding beds for susceptible noses can be tricky, and you might have to go further more on what is your dog is allergic to. On the other hand, prevention is always a good policy; you might want to try a worthy alternative on hypoallergenic bed shelter. Covers like these are usually made of 100% waterproof Nano-pore fabrics and they are also a barrier against dirt, dust, mites and fleas.
There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to picking the best dog bed, so whether you want to go for comfort and expense, comfort and affordability, or have special needs, there are so many varieties of dog beds on the market, FinishBuild shares and explores a few interesting options at the present time to let you know what is the best for you.

The cot dog bed
Does your dog happen to have a really thick haired or long-haired? dogs have an unfortunate tendency to overheat, and when the hair is abundant these beds can definitely cool them down. If your dog tends to overheat while resting, therefore the finest bed choice for your puppy would be the cot style bed. A cot bed usually features a mesh or net material for the dog to lay on in addition to legs that elevate the bed off the ground for plenty of air circulation around your dog as they sleep.

Another tip on this dog bed is that if you own older dogs with incontinence issues, cot beds can do the job due to the fact that they do not retain odors after cleaning.
The useful cabinet
This is our favorite and more achievable than buying a manufactured bed, that might cost you a couple of bucks. If you are looking for a cozy but also hiding place, cabinet can easily do the job. So, whether you want to spoil your dog a little bit or just provide him a room as any member of the family, you could just allow your dog to hide under any cabinet in your house. The location options are endless; you can adapt dog bed areas into closets, kitchen cabinets, garage cupboards. Any hiding spot in your laundry or kitchen, or beneath your staircase, is a great way to give your dog that cave-like feeling.
Keep into account that building a dog bed area, it does not necessarily means that you have to replace the entire cabinet to give your puppy a nice spot, you can easily add a piece of fabric with sparkly and fun colors to recreate a door, or just decorate a corner under a counter. The laundry room, for example is the perfect dog-friendly location because of its tiled flooring.
