How lucky you are to live with a big dog! Most of them are calm, good-natured, noble, familiar and affectionate. Unconditional of their owners and families, their size is small compared to their great loyalty.
Among the most popular large dogs are the German Shepherd, Golden and Labrador Retriever, Boxer and Belgian Shepherd, and mixed breed dogs, each of them unique and special.
In this article we explain how to properly choose a mattress for large dogs. Due to their large size, these dogs also have great needs that need to be covered, and one of them is the mattress for their rest. Do not neglect this important aspect for their health.
Weight counts, and a lot
We consider large dogs to be all those weighing 30 kilos or more. Some, like the Great Dane or the Saint Bernard, can weigh more than 60 kilos. Having to support that weight makes them prone to bone problems such as osteoarthritis or hip dysplasia that worsen with age.
Another factor to take into account is being overweight or obese. We must help our dog to maintain a appropriate weight. If we see that she loses her shape and curves, that she has a lot of fat in her abdomen and waist and that it is difficult for us to feel her ribs... it is time to get down to work:
- control her diet, not don't let him eat after hours or give him leftovers or too many treats or treats.
- increase the duration of his walks and if his health and age allow it, make him run and burn energy.
Putting a dog on a diet costs a lot, they are specialists in making that little face of irresistible pity. But you must be firm and not give him more than necessary. It is your health that is at stake.

If the interior of the mattress for your large dog matters, we must also take into account the exterior. We must ensure that the cover is made of a fabric that is pleasant to the touch for the animal and that it does not radiate too much heat.Nor are we interested in fabrics that retain dust or attract bacteria that can cause allergic reactions. And if they are also easy to clean and maintain, all the better.
And the size?
Your dog is big , so your bed should be too. Observe how your dog sleeps to choose the size of his mattress: does he usually sleep stretched out? snuggles? That will already give you clues as to what is the right size for him.
