Best heated dog beds based on our customer reviews
|K and H Thermo Dog Heated Orthopaedic Bed with Fleece Cover||I bought this product and I am very pleased with it. My Shiba likes to go on and off it whenever he feels like it. I actually called the manufacturer, it is designed to only give off heat when your doggie lays on the mat, you can test it by resting a pillow or your hand on it, it is not very warm to us humans but seem to be well liked by the doggie- but then dogs are not as warm as humans. Also it important to note that the electric pad inside is only a rectangle piece that is 1/3 of the size of the pet bed. Surprisingly it is enough for the doggie. I have left it on 24/7 I feel this is a good product. I liked that it came with a bed so I didnt have to worry about layers on top or below the heating pad to not burn my doggie. Highly recommend this product for winter and older dogs. -CATH|

Frequently Asked Questions:
Are heated dog beds safe?
There are a number of benefits to heated dog beds, especially for older or arthric pets, who tend to be more stiff and sore during the winter months. For more ways to care for your arthritic dog, read our article 5 ways to ease your dog's arthritis. Heated dog beds also provide an additional level of comfort to pets living in cooler climates. A few popular designs rely on internal heating systems similar to electric blankets, or self-warming styles that use the pet's body warmth to heat the bed, similar to space blankets.
There are a few safety considerations to keep in mind when using a heated dog bed. Any heated dog bed that uses an electrical current should be used under close supervision to ensure the cord is not chewed or damaged. Another consideration is over-heating. Care should be exercised for dogs who have reduced or limited mobility or are sick or injured, as it may be more difficult for them to shift from the bed if they become too warm. If there are signs of wear on heated dog beds, it is always best to discard. Always follow the manufacturer's directions with regards to care and cleaning.
