When puppies aren’t playing or eating, they are sleeping. Sleep is an important part of a puppy’s life because most growing occurs during this time. Also, a well-rested puppy is a healthy puppy. You want to make sure that your puppy is comfortable and has a bed to call his own.
Why does a puppy need their own bed?
Puppy beds are important because it provides a safe place for your pup in which to fall asleep. This way, he can avoid many dangers while napping and can experience uninterrupted sleep. When puppies are woken up prematurely, or during deeper stages of sleep like REM sleep, they can develop health problems and poor growth.
Puppy beds also help to keep pups off of your furniture. It may be cute when your Great Dane puppy sleeps on your couch at just 15 or 20 pounds, but it is much more difficult to break the habit when he is weighing over 100 pounds! Also, having his own bed may help to keep the peace between him and other dogs in your home. If he has his own bed, he may be less likely to “steal” someone else’s bed.
