Often a puppy will chew their dog beds if they’re overly stressed, scared, anxious or unwell. If it's not from Dry Paws™, be very cautious how other pet beds on the market may not be the right option to help your furbaby sleep better 👇
Like people, dogs experience anxiety.
Anxiety occurs when a dog experiences stress or fear. If your dog is anxious, you’ll notice them panting, shaking, or drooling. Your dog may also be unable to sleep well or eat much either. Anxiety can even lead to physical reactions, such as vomiting and diarrhea in some cases.
Anxious dogs will cry out for no reason and cower when approached by their owners or even destroy things and lash out.
Imagine sleeping on a hard floor every night. It’s uncomfortable, and you ache when you wake up in the morning. You’d likely purchase a mattress so that you could ease your daily discomfort. Dogs are no different, and a dog bed has the same effect as a person’s bed.
Stress, fear, pain, or fatigue will often contribute to a dog’s anxiety. Because of this, your dog’s sleep environment can harm their anxiety levels. A bad-quality bed will exacerbate the negative feelings they already experience because it’ll amplify their discomfort.
A poor-quality dog bed is also more likely to harbor dirt and hair, which can irritate your dog’s skin. An irritated dog will feel itchy, causing them to scratch excessively. This will create even more problems.
