DJANGO Dog Blog Review: The Best Orthopedic Dog Bed and Waterproof Dog Blanket - djangobrand.com
Paw.com Review: Best Orthopedic Dog Bed and Waterproof Dog Blanket

August 09, 2022

Our adorable sausage dog Django recently had back surgery for Intervertebral Disc Disease. Four weeks after Django's surgery, our family moved into a new home with hardwood floors everywhere. Although Django has been recovering nicely after his surgery, his back legs are still wobbly at times, and he tends to slip on smooth surfaces—especially hardwood! Since moving, our goal has been to find top-quality pet products that not only help Django be comfortable in the home but also protect our new floors and furniture.

In addition to looking for a new orthopedic dog bed for Django, I began searching for high quality and nice looking pet blankets for the couch and bed. In my search, I soon discovered Paw.com and the high quality pet products they offer. Paw.com offers modern orthopedic dog beds and matching faux fur waterproof pet blankets, among other original designs. After reading reviews from passionate Paw.com customers, I ordered the PupRug Bundle for Django which includes both Paw.com's memory foam pet bed and faux fur blanket. Django has been obsessed with his bed and blanket ever since we opened our Paw.com boxes!

The following is an honest review and in-depth overview of Paw.com’s PupRug Faux Fur Orthopedic Dog Bed and PupProtector Waterproof Blanket based on our experience with both. If you have any questions about our Paw.com experience or want to share a story of your own, please leave us a comment below!

August 03, 2022 1 Comment

Does your dog jump for joy when he hits the pool, beach, or anything wet? Maybe he crashes kiddie pools or belly flops into any body of water like our sausage dog Django. Or maybe your dog is downright afraid to dip his paw in the pool. Every canine is unique, and not all are dripping with excitement at the thought of getting wet. Depending on your dog’s breed, personality, and experiences, he might be a natural swimmer or water-shy.

Whether your dog is a seafarer like Django or a landlubber, he needs to learn how to be safe in the water. You might want to catch a wave or backcountry canoe with your dog. Maybe you even have an inflatable kiddie pool or a swimming pool in your backyard. In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we discuss the best and worst dog breeds for swimming and look at how long your dog can safely stay in the pool. We also explain how to teach your dog to swim and provide water safety tips.
