Did you know that National Bed Month runs throughout March? We didn’t but we think it’s a month everyone should know about – who doesn’t love their bed? Just as National Pet Month is a celebration about pets and how to give them the care they need. National Bed Month is about highlighting how vital a good night’s sleep is for health and well-being.
This is relevant for all family members including our pets. Here are some top tips on what you need to consider for your furry friends:
Let sleeping dogs lie: Help your dog get a good night’s sleep by positioning comfortable bedding in a quiet place where they won’t be disturbed. Also put a beanbag near a window so they can be stimulated by outside activity when you are away from the house.
Cat Naps: Cats like to sleep in safe, secure places. Consider putting their bed in a high but accessible spot or giving them places to hideaway like cardboard boxes
Bunny boudoir – Unlike us, rabbits are mostly active at dawn and dusk which means they often sleep during the day. Replicate their natural underground environment by keeping their sleeping area dark and cosy. Rabbits can also use this area as a hide out when they feel threatened.
