I have a nine yearold lab who has always slept inside on the floor(Carpet)on top of a sheepskin pad and a big blanket. I went out and bought her an orthopedic bed, but she does not want to sleep in it. I know it is softer than what she is sleeping on know. I thought it would be better for her since she does suffer from some stiff joints now. Any suggestions on how I can encourage her to sleep in her new bed? Thanks!
my big dog(golden/collie)used to sleep on the brick in the fireplace (never used), we went and spent 100 dollars on a bed for her and she refused to sleep in it. i could never figure it out, the bricks in the summer were cool, and in the winter we put a feather bed in there for her. she just would never sleep in the big bed, finally gave it to a friend with a big dog, they can't get her out of it. some just like what they are used to and don't want change.
