Irish Wolfhound is a dog breed that is pretty large in size. As per written in our previous post, the Irish Wolfhound can really rival the Great Dane in terms of size. They do need to be fed with specific food types as you wouldn’t want the dog to grow too big. Having said that, since the Irish Wolfhound is large in size, it can be pretty tricky when you wish to purchase a dog bed for Irish Wolfhound. While there are beds that are extra large in size, not all of them are suitable for the Irish Wolfhounds. Let us look into the dog beds that Irish Wolfhound deserves.
Your Irish Wolfhound Deserves A Dog Bed
Why is it that the dog deserves a bed? Of course they do! Dogs are the best companion that anyone can have, and this is especially the case for the Irish Wolfhound. They are loyal, intelligent, and it is relatively easy to maintain them. While they may sound like a hunting dog, they are surprisingly not a barking dog. While they might not bark, their size is a natural deterrent against intruders. This docile creature will fare well in a fenced area as it allows them to have the avenue to run. Should you need a fenced yard, you can consider using the wireless dog fence.
Since they are such lovely animals, they certainly do deserve a comfortable bed that they can rest in after a long day or after physical exertions. Given its large size, they might have problems with their bone structure when they are older. So, the bed that we purchase for the Irish Wolfhound can be an orthopedic dog bed. Do note that the Irish Wolfhound does not have the tendency to drool. This is good, as we do not need to specifically choose a bed that is waterproof, though it is a good feature to have.
Kuranda Almond PVC Chewproof Dog Bed
The Kuranda Almond PVC Chewproof Dog Bed is an elevated dog bed that is awesome in keeping your Irish Wolfhound cool during Summer. While the dog is known to be resistant to the cold, they are not that resistant against the hotter days of the year. As such, by having an elevated bed that is able to keep the dog cool, your Irish Wolfhound will have a better time sleeping through the weather.
Another quality that contributes to the bed’s ability to keep the dog cool is due to the material too. The Vinyl weave is completely waterproof, and since its weave, it allows air to pass through the fabric easily. This allows the natural convection process to keep the dog cool at all times. Together with the aluminum bed frame, the Irish Wolfhound will be able to enjoy resting or sleeping on this bed.
Just in case your Irish Wolfhound is a chewer, you might want to know that this orthopedic bed for dogs is resistant to chews. In fact, it is stated to be able to resist up to 99% of chews. This is attributed to the rounded corners as well as the fabric, which is tucked into the frame itself. All of these discourages your dog to bite through it.
We highly recommend this highly portable dog bed if you intend to bring your Irish Wolfhound out to play often during Summer. It weighs at just below 11 pounds, and the dimensions of the fabric area is at 41′ x 24′.
Pros: Keep dogs cool during summer. Portable. Chew resistant.
Cons: Not fluffy
