Finding the right bed for your pet can be a hit-or-miss process if you’re not looking for the right features. If you’ve ever been excited to bring a new dog bed home, only for your pooch to sniff it and never lie on it again, you’ll know all too well how frustrating it can be to spend money on subpar pet beds that don’t get used.
While cost-effectiveness is often a top priority for dog owners when it comes to buying pet products and dog beds, it’s crucial to make sure the safety, comfort and wellbeing of your pooch is front of mind. Much like how we need to find the best mattresses and beds for ourselves, giving your dog a pet bed designed right here in Australia for their comfort and happiness can make a world of difference.
In recent years, Kmart dog beds have emerged as a popular option, largely due to their affordability. While these Kmart beds might score highly on the affordability scale, they may not provide the necessary support that’s all about protecting your dog’s health on an everyday basis.
Investing in a high-quality dog bed isn’t just about looks. By providing your pet with a safe, comfortable place to snuggle in for a sleep, you’re making sure they’re happier, healthier and equipped to bring their best energy to each trip to the dog park.
What should you look for in a great dog bed?
When it comes to shopping for pet beds, there’s a number of criteria you need to make sure the bed fulfils. Unfortunately, it’s going to be difficult for Kmart pet beds to hit the mark on each of these!
Firstly, you’ll need to make sure you’re buying the right size for your pooch. The dog bed should be large enough for your dog to stretch out with space to spare, but not so big that they’re not able to feel snug and secure in it. Great dog beds will come with size guides that make it easy to know exactly which bed is the right fit for your pup.
Next, you’ll want to consider the material the dog bed is made from. Beds that are made of high-quality materials are going to be durable, breathable and much more comfortable for your dog. Beds that are made of cheap materials, like Kmart dog bedding often is, are likely to fall apart quickly, providing less value for money when they need to be replaced just a couple of months after your initial purchase. Kmart dog beds may also be less comfortable for your dog, particularly if you live in a climate where your dog could be at risk of overheating in less breathable material.
SASH Beds resolve these challenges by using materials that are built to last. Even if you’ve got the most excited pup in the world, our beds will stand up to the challenge, every inch of these beds are designed to stand up to the test of time. With generous padding and thick, durable and stylish machine-washable covers, you’ll find the highest quality of materials has been put to use for the comfort of your pet.
Alongside the size and materials, the next consideration when you’re hunting for a pet bed is support. Is your dog going to have the support they need for not only a great night’s sleep, but for the ongoing protection of their joints if they’re sleeping in a Kmart dog bed? By looking for beds that are made of memory foam or other supportive materials, your dog will benefit from pressure point relief, as well as reducing the risk of developing future joint problems.
With each SASH Bed designed to give your dog maximum support, you’ll never have to worry about your pooch’s joints or comfort in their pet bed. By investing in a dog bed that’ll last the test of time, you’ll be able to give your dog the highest level of health support each time they settle in for a nap.
The benefits of easy cleaning
Let’s be honest: while we may be able to get our partner or our kids to make their own bed, there’s no chance of the dog doing the same. When you’re looking for a great dog bed, it’s crucial to look for something that’s easy to clean, giving you the same fresh feeling in a year as it had the day you bought it.
With machine-washable covers, every SASH Bed’s designed for longevity. It’s simple and straightforward to keep your dog’s bed fresh and hygienic while also increasing the lifetime of your SASH Bed. Changed your mind about the colour that suits your home palette? Simply order a new cover, and you’ve got a whole new bed in an instant!
By contrast, the majority of Kmart dog beds are much more cheaply designed, making it difficult to adequately wash and clean them. This can reduce their longevity, as they’re at risk of becoming dirty and smelly through constant use. If you’re unable to clean them properly, you face throwing them out and buying them again, adding more expense over time for a lower quality of everyday use.
Mental health benefits for pets
It’s not just humans who need safe, secure spaces to regulate ourselves. Our pets also need spaces that feel like they’re just theirs, giving them options for places to rest, recuperate and find some quiet away from the hubbub of family activities. Kmart dog beds can make it difficult for them to truly snuggle in and find that privacy.
SASH beds have been designed to provide comfort not only for your dog’s physical needs, but also for their mental and emotional needs. Our calming dog beds are uniquely shaped to provide additional security and comfort for your dog. With each bed featuring soft, cosy textures that provide a calming effect, you can provide your pet with a safe space that’s attuned to their emotional needs.
While a cheap dog bed from Kmart might look like the better solution in the short term, investing in a high-quality dog bed is the only way to protect your dog’s health and wellbeing, as well as securing a bed that’ll last for the long term. SASH beds are designed to provide the perfect solution for pet owners of all shapes and sizes. With a range of beds designed to give your pets the best sleep they’ve ever experienced, you’ll discover just what a difference quality makes to their health and happiness.
