However, if, when thinking over the interior decoration of the house, a person can take care of his furniture in advance, the pet is deprived of such an opportunity and is forced to huddle where it fits. To solve this problem, many manufacturers have long offered modern furniture for dogs.
Why should you consider dog furniture?
“Doggy” interior elements make life easier and brighter for the pet and the owner for a number of reasons:
Own cozy couch in the favorite part of the apartment calms the animal when the owners are absent for a long time or invite guests to the house.
If the house is large and the dog has a lot of pieces of furniture belonging to it in different parts of it, it can comfortably settle down in any room, accompanying the owner. Then the pet does not have a choice – to be with a loved one or to stay where it is convenient and good.
Furniture for dogs is not only comfortable and safe, but also lets pets know where they belong. This is an important point in training, guaranteeing complete obedience.
For owners of long-haired and heavily shedding breeds, it is especially important that wool is not under every pillow, in a plate and on a shelf with things. Special furniture partially solves this problem by offering the dog an alternative to the human sofa.
For a long time, the attributes necessary for the life of pets have ceased to be a bright and awkward spot in the stylish decoration of the house. Today, such furniture can be made in any style and color, individually tailored to the size and characteristics of each dog, and usually consists of quality materials.
What is dog furniture?
The most common interior items are various variations of pedestal cages, beds and coasters for bowls.
- Cabinets-cages combine practicality and beauty. On the one hand, these are non-standard cages, unlike a prison cell, in which it is convenient for a pet to rest and where it can be closed at the right time. On the other hand, they are inserted into nightstands, bedside tables, small chests of drawers, so they can be used for storage, decorations, flower vases and other eye-pleasing things.
- Beds for dogs , frame or frameless chair (pear-shaped), ottoman. The lounger can also be placed on the lower tier of the moving table, so that you can carry it with you around the apartment (along with a small dog). Another format is a dog bed, similar to the one in which children are placed to sleep next to their parents.
- Coasters for bowls They come in a wide variety of designs and come in a variety of heights and sizes. They fit into any interior, making items belonging to the pet look like human ones.
What to look for when choosing furniture?
In pursuit of originality and elegance, do not forget about quality. The material of furniture for dogs should be:
- Otporan na oštećenja;
- Jednostavna njega.
It is worth giving preference to furniture made of good wood and durable glass, every corner of which can be easily washed and disinfected at any time.
Particular attention should be paid to the upholstery and filler of the couch. They should not accumulate dust and moisture, lose their shape and softness after washing (this applies to the filler), wear out easily. The filling material can be synthetic winterizer, sintepuh, durafil, natural latex, polyurethane foam, for frameless chairs – polyester balls.
Furniture for dogs is different. When choosing, it is important to focus not only on your opinion, but also on the preferences of the dog.
If she likes to spend time under a canopy, then a closed “house” will suit her, but if the pet is used to constantly monitoring what is happening, he will like a sofa, an armchair and many other open options.
Furniture for dogs plays a very important, though not obvious, role. It transforms the dog’s place in the house from alien and somewhat impractical to comfortable, corresponding to the tastes of the owners. The presence of your own furniture favorably affects the behavior of the pet, gives him a sense of security and at the same time does not spoil the interior of the house.
