Wags on the logs

So all I've got to do is stay on top of these logs?

Barker: OK Wags, remember what I taught you, eyes on the horizon and let your legs do the work
Wags: OK, so I just stand on top of these logs then..
Barker: Wags you’ve got to move your legs up and down to get used to rolling logs when you get on the water
Wags: But we’re not going anywhere, it’s actually quite nice up here

Barker and Wags believe it’s important to eat a healthy diet, take regular exercise and have fun.

A Revolution in Dog Beds
August 27, 2010

Dogs can spend up to 20 hours a day lying around and sleeping. That’s not because they are inherently lazy, it’s just evolution and the new role of the domesticated pet. For a dog’s all-round good health, it’s important during this down time that their body completely relaxes and they are able to get good quality sleep.

The choice of dog bed is important for your dog’s overall well-being and care should be taken to choose an appropriate pet dog bed for your best friend taking into consideration your dog’s size, age and breed (some breeds are more likely to suffer from arthritis and hip or elbow dysplasia as they get older).

There are many types of dog beds on the market and every size, shape and colour is catered for. Often purchases are made simply on whether the colour will go with the carpet or on how easy it is to clean (most are machine washable nowadays). Some materials are harder wearing and if you have a dog that likes to chew on things you might do well to think about a tough nylon covering.

If your dog is a large breed, elderly or suffers from any joint pain or degenerative joint disease (DJD) like arthritis or hip dysplasia they will need the best support possible for a good night’s sleep. Fortunately there are new materials available to provide orthopaedic and anatomic support for your dog while they rest.

Memory Foam is a unique material that is used in the design and manufacture of Barker and Wags luxury dog beds. It has many properties which make it an ideal material for a good night’s rest.

Memory Foam reacts to heat and weight and will mould to your dog’s body shape for exactly the right support. When they change position, the memory foam will react and re-mould itself accordingly, giving continued orthopaedic and anatomic support no matter how often your dog shifts position.

Memory Foam has been a revolutionary invention and is used throughout the NHS and by professional and amateur athletes alike as it provides a quicker recovery time after injuries and a better rest after exhausting training and playing. Your dog can now benefit from the same invention leading to speedier recovery times from injury and better rest and recuperation.

Barker and Wags Pet Dog Beds have been designed specifically for dogs suffering from or likely to suffer from any form of joint pain including arthritis, hip or elbow dysplasia. They are constructed from memory foam technology and come in a range of sizes and colours. They have machine washable outer covers and a waterproof inner lining for ultimate protection.

Barker and Wags Pet Dog Beds are suitable for all dogs and especially those likely to or already experiencing any form of joint pain. Check out our range of Pet Dog Beds to find the right one for your dog.
