    28.02.24 February 28, 2024 FAQs

    How Often Should You Replace Your Dog’s Bed?

    Did you know dogs spend 12 to 14 hours a day sleeping? That's a lot of time in bed so it's no surprise that their bed might be looking a little worse for wear. Dogs are creatures of comfort so making sure they have a a clean and supportive bed is essential for their overall well-being. In this guide, our Pet Experts explore the signs that indicate it's time to change your dog's bed and share expert tips on how to care for your canine's cherished sleeping spot. How Often Should You Replace Your Dog’s Bed? Determining how often to replace your dog's bed depends on several factors including the quality of the bed, your dog's size and activity level, and any specific health considerations. As a general guideline, it's advisable to replace your dog's bed every 1 to 3 years, or sooner if signs of wear and tear become noticeable. Signs It's Time to Change Your Dog's Bed: Visible Wear and Tear: Over time, your dog's bed may start showing signs of wear and tear, such as flattened cushions, lumps, or torn fabric. If you notice any significant damage, it's a clear indication that it's time to consider a replacement. Lingering Odours: Despite regular cleaning, dog beds can accumulate odours over time, especially if your furry friend enjoys outdoor adventures or has accidents indoors. Lingering smells that persist even after washing could signal the need for a new bed. Loss of Support: Just like humans, dogs require proper support for their joints and muscles, especially as they age or if they have existing health conditions. If your dog's bed no longer provides adequate support or has become too soft, it's time to invest in a new one to ensure their comfort and well-being. It might be worth investing in an orthopaedic dog bed if your dog’s breed is prone to joint issues. Allergies and Skin Irritations: Dogs can develop allergies or skin irritations from prolonged exposure to dust mites, pet dander, or other allergens that accumulate in their beds over time. If you notice your dog scratching more than usual or experiencing skin issues, a new bed with hypoallergenic materials may offer relief. Preference for Alternative Sleeping Spots: Dogs are creatures of habit, and if you notice your furry friend opting for alternative sleeping spots around the house instead of their bed, it could indicate that they're no longer comfortable or satisfied with their current sleeping arrangements. It’s worth looking at how your dog likes to sleep so you can get the best bed shape to suit their sleeping style, our Information Hub has a guide on how to choose the perfect dog bed for your dog. Top Ways to Care for Your Dog's Bed: Regular Washing: Establish a routine for washing your dog's bed to remove dirt, hair, and odour-causing bacteria. Most of our Lords & Labradors dog beds are machine washable, we have a handy guide on how to wash your dog’s bed here. Use a Removable Cover: Opt for dog beds with removable, machine-washable covers for easy cleaning. Having a spare cover on hand allows you to swap them out while one is being laundered, ensuring your pup always has a fresh and clean place to sleep. We also sell bamboo bed covers which are great for popping over your dog’s bed to help keep them clean especially after a muddy dog walk, they will act as an additional layer of defence against moisture and stains, extending the life of the bed! Vacuum and Spot Clean: In between washings, use a handheld vacuum or lint roller to remove hair and debris from the surface of the bed. Spot clean any stains or spills promptly to prevent them from setting into the fabric. Rotate and Fluff: Just like flipping a mattress, periodically rotate your dog's bed to distribute wear evenly and prevent premature sagging. Fluffing the bed's filling helps maintain its loft and support over time. Sun and Air Dry: On sunny days, take advantage of natural sunlight by airing out your dog's bed outdoors. Sunlight helps eliminate odours and kills bacteria, leaving the bed feeling fresh and revitalised. Inspect Regularly: Take time to inspect your dog's bed for any signs of damage, loose seams, or worn-out stuffing. Promptly address any issues to prevent further deterioration and ensure your pup's safety and comfort. By recognising the signs that it's time to change your dog's bed and implementing proper care and maintenance techniques, you can provide your furry friend with a clean, comfortable, and supportive sleeping environment. Remember, a happy and well-rested pup makes for a happier pet parent too! If you’re looking to upgrade your dog’s bed why not check out our collection of luxury dog beds? Bedding is our speciality, we design and craft all of our bedding here in our Lincolnshire workshop so you can be sure your dog will be getting the best sleep possible in one of our luxury dog beds.

    Best Dog Treats To Keep Them Busy

    As dog owners, we know that keeping our furry friends occupied and engaged is essential for their mental stimulation and overall well-being. One of the most effective ways to keep dogs entertained and mentally stimulated is through the use of treats and toys designed specifically to captivate their attention. Whether you have an energetic puppy or an adult dog with a penchant for play, finding the right treats and toys can make a world of difference. Best Dog Treats to Keep Them Busy: Finding the Perfect Fit When it comes to choosing the best treats to keep dogs busy, it's crucial to consider their preferences, age, size, and chewing habits. Not all treats or toys are suitable for every dog, so here’s a breakdown of the top options: 1. Treat Dispensing Toys Treat-dispensing toys are a fantastic way to keep your dog engaged for extended periods. Products like KONG Classic or KONG wobbler can be filled with treats, offering mental stimulation as they work to retrieve the hidden goodies. 2. Long-Lasting Chews For dogs with powerful jaws or an insatiable urge to chew, long-lasting chews like natural treats, yak cheese chews, or antlers can be a great choice. These treats not only keep them occupied but also help in maintaining dental health. Be careful when choosing a long-lasting dog chew to check that it doesn’t contain rawhide, commonly used in a lot of long-lasting dog chews rawhide is actually really difficult for your dog’s stomach to breakdown and can cause all sorts issues. A great alternative to rawhide is the Earth Animal No Hide chews, they come in a range of flavours and are long-lasting so are perfect for keeping your pup busy. 3. Puzzle Treat Toys Puzzle toys, such as the Nina Ottosson interactive puzzles or Smart Choice S Shaped Puzzle, challenge dogs to solve puzzles to access treats. These toys provide mental stimulation, preventing boredom and promoting problem-solving skills. 4. Frozen Treats During warmer months, frozen treats like frozen bananas or ice cubes made with chicken broth can offer a refreshing way to keep your pup entertained and cool. You can even try freezing some wet food in their KONG classic as a fun way to give your dog their food whilst keeping them busy. Best Chew Toys and Treats for Puppies Puppies, with their boundless energy and curiosity, require specific treats and toys to keep them occupied: 1. Puppy-Safe Chew Toys Opt for durable and safe chew toys specifically designed for puppies. Toys such as the KONG Puppy Teething Stick or the Tuffs Puppy Pastel Fetch & Chew Bar are excellent choices for keeping teething puppies busy as they cater to teething puppies' needs. 2. Soft Treats for Training Soft, small treats are ideal for training purposes with puppies. Treats like The Innocent Hound Puppy Training Treats can be used during training sessions to keep them engaged and motivated. For something longer lasting for your pup why not try some natural treats to keep them busy? Choosing the right treats and toys for your furry companion can significantly impact their mental and physical well-being. Experimenting with different options and observing your dog's preferences will help you discover the best treats and toys to keep them entertained and engaged for hours. Remember, supervision is crucial, especially with new toys or treats, to ensure they are safe and suitable for your dog's individual needs. By investing in the best dog treats and toys that keep them busy, you’re not only providing entertainment but also contributing to their overall happiness and health. Whether it's a puzzle toy to challenge their mind or a long-lasting chew to satisfy their natural instincts, the best treats and toys are those that bring joy and keep tails wagging.

  • Do Dogs Get Hayfever?
    13.05.24 May 13, 2024 Health

    Do Dogs Get Hayfever?

    As the seasons change and pollen fills the air, many of us find ourselves battling the dreaded symptoms of hayfever. But what about our furry companions? Can dogs suffer from hayfever too? In this article, our Pet Experts explore the intriguing question: do dogs get hayfever? Can Dogs Get Hayfever? The short answer is yes, dogs can indeed suffer from hayfever, although it's not as common as it is in humans. Just like people, dogs can be allergic to various environmental allergens such as pollen, dust mites, mold, and even certain foods. Symptoms of Hayfever in Dogs: Identifying hayfever in dogs can be a bit tricky since they can't tell us how they're feeling. However, there are some telltale signs that your furry friend may be suffering from allergies: Itchy skin: One of the most common symptoms of hayfever in dogs is constant scratching or licking of the skin, particularly around the face, paws, and belly. If they have itchy skin it’s worth bathing them in a shampoo designed of sensitive skin, like the PetPlex derma doctor shampoo, especially after any long walks outside in grassy ares to help minimise their symptoms. Watery eyes: If your dog's eyes are red, watery, or swollen, it could be a sign of hayfever. Sneezing and coughing: Just like humans, dogs with hayfever may sneeze or cough frequently, especially after exposure to allergens. Ear infections: Allergies can also contribute to ear infections in dogs, so keep an eye out for excessive ear scratching or head shaking. Runny nose: Nasal discharge or a runny nose is another common symptom of hayfever in dogs. Can Dogs Get Hayfever Tablets? Yes, there are hayfever tablets available for dogs that can help alleviate their symptoms. These tablets typically contain antihistamines, which work by blocking the histamine receptors in your dog's body, reducing the allergic response. However, it's crucial to consult with your vet before giving your dog any medication, as some human antihistamines can be toxic to dogs and it’s crucial to get the right dose for their size. Can Dogs Get Hayfever Eyes? Absolutely! Dogs can experience allergic conjunctivitis, commonly known as hayfever eyes. Symptoms include redness, swelling, and itching around the eyes, as well as excessive tearing or discharge. If you notice these symptoms in your dog, it's essential to consult with your vet to determine the best course of treatment. Conclusion: In conclusion, dogs can indeed suffer from hayfever, experiencing symptoms such as itching, sneezing, watery eyes, and a runny nose. If you suspect that your dog may be suffering from hayfever, it's crucial to consult with your veterinarian for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. With the right care and management, you can help keep your canine companion comfortable and allergy-free all year round. Here at Lords & Labradors we pride ourselves on our in-house team of Pet Experts, between them they have years of pet owning experience and are on hand to answer queries about our products and their suitability - chat to them here.
