Top 5 Dog Beds for Anxiety


Dog-Beds-For-Anxiety

 

Suffering with anxiety can be very stressful and if you don’t know how to handle the situation when you start to experience an episode of anxiety this can lead you to over think and make you more anxious. It’s a horrible emotion to suffer with and I sympathise with anyone that does suffer from it. But, did you know that dogs can suffer from anxiety too? And, did you know that dog beds for anxiety are available on the market?

In this review I am going to highlight some of the pros and cons to what I think are the top 5 dog beds for anxiety that are available to buy online today.

It’s a proven fact that when dogs feel anxious they often seek comfort by resorting to their bed just as we humans would do in such times that we feel ourselves at a low point, we take to the sofa and lay down or we get into bed and get under the covers. Well, dogs are just like humans in that respect. Dogs will find their ‘safe space’ where they find themselves to be at peace and at ease. This is where it’s important to assist your dog with the aid of a small dog bed or a large dog bed that’s right for them.

 

Snoozer Luxury Cozy Cave

The great thing about a Snoozer dog bed is that you are guaranteed quality and your dog is guaranteed comfort. They have been making top quality dog beds for years and there’s a reason why Snoozer are still around with a large amount of repeat business. If you don’t like this particular bed I still think that you will be able to find what you are looking for within their online store as they cater for all sizes and ages.

      • Reduces stress and anxiety in dogs.

    Hi Chris, I know that dogs, like humans, can get very anxious, specially when they are left alone. But I have never heard of a bed for anxiety! 

    As a dog owner I know that it is important for a dog to have a special place, and a dog bed is perfect for that. We have a big kennel outside for our big dog, but also a dog bed which we cover with a towel, as he likes to scratch and turn around to make a “nest” before lying down. 

    It looks as if the Best Friends by Sheri Donut Cudler will give him that opportunity and will fit the bill for him.

    wow what a great post and well researched, I have a very anxious dog and I hate leaving her alone because I know how hard it is.  I’ve tried lots of things, but I think trying a new bed will be a great option.  I love the snoozer luxury one! My dog is always trying to climb under the covers so I know that having that extra cover will be an extra comfort 🙂
