Although dogs seem to have this wonderful ability to be able to fall asleep wherever they want, this doesn't mean they are always comfortable. Giving your furry friend a place to sleep at night is actually not only beneficial to their comfort level, but also for their health. Dogs are similar to humans in a sense that they have a bone structure that needs to be catered to at night. Sleeping for hours and hours on a hard surface could cause pain, arthritis, and other structural ailments. Could you imagine if humans had to sleep on the floor or merely a blanket each night? There would be all kinds of joint problems and soreness on a daily basis. Getting a dog bed provides a solution for injury prevention.
