In this age of design and style, who says dog beds have to be boring? Wicker dog beds are strong, supportive and most importantly stylish. If your dog wasn’t a connoisseur of design before, it certainly will be after stepping food in a wicker basket!
In reality, a dog doesn’t care what its bed looks like, just that it is soft and comfortable. While most dogs are able to take a nap on the hard floor, climbing into their own bed at night is all they want to do. However if the dog bed is in a prime location like the kitchen or living room, it can be beneficial to pick one that looks somewhat stylish, and that’s the beauty of wicker dog beds.
For those that are unaware, wicker is a hard, natural, almost woody fibre that is woven into rigid shapes. While many natural materials may be used, such as bamboo or reed, it is willow switches that are most common. The weave forms a strong, lightweight object that has a natural charm about it. For dog beds this is great because wicker is hard enough to accommodate even the largest of dogs and is lightweight enough for owners to move around as they please.
There are several styles of wicker dog bed, from the traditional oval shape to more modern angular styles. While the dog may not care what the bed looks like, if you’re very design conscious, getting the right looking bed for a room can be important. Don’t be surprised however if you come home to find your dog has been chewing it a bit- it is the dog’s space after all and your interior design is the least of it’s worries!
