Whether you live in an apartment, condo/townhouse, house, cabin, or mansion, one thing is probably certain. The bedroom is not the only room that has a comfy place for a human to lie down or recline in.
Most homes have at least a sofa or an easy-chair or two, and some have daybeds in dens. A lot of people like porch swings or hanging hammocks between trees, and if you’re the mansion type you might even have a fancy massager chair that lets you lean back and really relax.
Let’s face it: Sometimes, it’s just easier or more comfortable to lie down, and who doesn’t love a good afternoon nap on the couch? The only way to binge-watch that new streaming series that just dropped in style is in big, comfy recliners, bucket of hot, buttered popcorn optional.
Although face it, the popcorn really isn’t optional.
Now think about where you live and the members of your family and think about whether there’s anyone who’s left out of this “more places than one to lie down” action.
Beds Aren’t Just For Bedrooms
It’s the dog. You may not have thought of that, but it is the dog. Your kids probably have places themselves on the sofa. Besides, they’re kids. They can still handle lying or sitting on the floor.
But if you’re like far too many pet parents, then you have that one dog bed in the corner of the room where the dog’s primary caregiver sleeps, and that’s it. If they come out to hang with the family, then they get to use the floor.
This can be uncomfortable, becoming more so as dogs age, especially if you have hardwood or tile. Probably the only dogs lucky in this regard are those with humans who haven’t redecorated since 1973 and so still have their 3” pile shag carpeting in a mixture of orange, brown, and avocado.
But really, dogs, if this describes your humans, you need to have a talk with them.
Ideally, your dog should have their own bed in every room at home where the humans regularly hang out — living room, den, family room, basement, sun porch, etc. That way, they have a comfortable spot that they know is theirs plus they get to hang out with their favorite people.
Adding Some Style
But why have boring-looking dog beds out where guests can see them when you can add some pizzaz and share your family’s tastes? This is where the new Paw.com line of Paw Sports orthopedic dog beds comes in.
Show your team spirit and mix up the designs, or even color-coordinate with each room.
They are currently available in the form of a football, basketball, baseball, soccer ball (otherwise known as a football outside of the U.S.), and tennis ball. They will provide a comfortable place for a dog to rest their bones and, at around 11 square feet each, they’re big enough for any dog.
The covers are removable and washable, and the durable, human-grade memory foam insert comes wrapped in a protective, waterproof foam cover in case of any accidents. The bottom is a rubberized, non-skid material that will keep the bed from getting kicked all over the place and the overall thickness of the beds are two inches.
Speaking of shag carpet, the predecessor of modern shag was the Flokati rug, woven from goat hair in ancient Greece.
They were originally designed for people to sit on in comfort on hard stone surfaces, but if you want to add some extra warmth and comfort to your dog’s new sports bed, consider adding in a waterproof throw blanket, available in many patterns as well as faux-fur.
Consider them a modern Flokati, but with 100% less goat hair.
But these dog beds from Paw Sports and Paw.com’s blankets are both the GOAT. You’ll want a set in every room of the house because, like you, your dogs deserve to be comfortable wherever they are.
