Sometimes it’s best to let sleeping dogs lie – but not in a bed older than Lassie.
Let’s think about this. We all change our bedsheets regularly, right? (OK, even we have our tails between our legs on this one.) Imagine not doing that, and frolicking seven days a week, barefooted. Rolling in the grass. Digging in the dirt. Wrestling with your friends. After all this, you skip the shower and snuggle into a floor-level bed, dozing into dreamland and drooling the whole night through. While maybe this sounds like your summer before uni, it’s not so fun when you consider what may be sniffing around – or in – your mattress, now as flat as a picnic table.
If you guessed that story was about your dog, good boy.
And if you’d like more reasons to clean or buy a new doggy bed, read on:
Let’s face it. It’s easy to forget to clean or change-out your dog’s bed. Spot never complains about a dusty dust-ruffle, and much prefers the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ approach to life. Unfortunately what he doesn’t see can hurt him – Fleas!
That one flea your dog piggybacked from the park can lay up to 1500 eggs a day, in his bed. If all those fleas hatched and multiplied at the same rate, your home could have nearly 15,000 eggs in one month.
So that’s why it’s spot-on to clean or replace your dog’s bed, from time to time. And don’t forget to make sure your furry friend is up-to-date with his flea treatment too.
Nobody likes a bed that likens to a coffee table – and even that’s probably more comfy than a dog’s bed that’s compressed over time. Your pal will thank you for a soft, comfortable and warm bed, particularly if he’s older or suffering from any arthritis.
