We all know what it feels like when we don’t get enough sleep, and a bunch of studies suggest that dogs can suffer from a lack of good quality sleep too!
Now, this doesn’t mean that you need to get your dog a sleeping bag for better quality sleep. But if you notice that your dog has a tendency to get comfortable under cover, it might be worthwhile to invest in one.
Just like people, all dogs have a unique personality and varying preferences. Some dogs couldn’t care less where they sleep. We know of many dog owners who spent lots of money on comfy dog beds but their dog continued to prefer to sleep on the cold tiles instead.
If you ask us, we think a dog sleeping bag makes sense when you already know that your dog likes to get comfy under covers. Also, if your dog hangs out on the couch with you, or sleeps in bed with you, giving them their own sleeping bag can increase comfort for both of you.
The obvious is also camping trips. If you once had to make a choice between sharing your sleeping bag with your dog or watching your dog suffer from the cold at night, you’ll know that neither of them have been a good choice to make, and you’ll probably want to be better prepared for the next trip (and maybe even bring an entire dog backpack with all your dog’s important bits).
We’ve done some research, and in this article we’ll show you everything we learned and where you can get your dog a sleeping bag in Australia.
What are the different types of sleeping bags for dogs?
There are different types of sleeping bags that you can get for your dog, depending on the reason you’re getting one.
For example, if you’re looking for something cozy to have in your living room, you might be interested in a den-type sleeping bag.
Or if you’re looking for a solution for traveling and camping trips, you’re probably after an easy-to-pack and properly insulated sleeping bag.
Here are some of the most common types of sleeping bags for dogs:
- Dog Cave Beds
- Dog Dens
- Dog Pods
