Maxi Zoo Longford: Advice on a good night's sleep for your pet
The right sleeping area is of great importance to animals welfare.
Like humans, pets love to curl up at the end of a long day for a restorative snooze.
To nap in peace, our pets need the right environment, so picking their sleeping area must be considered carefully.
Watch to see where your cat or dog most likes to lie down and see if they prefer a cushion, a basket or a blanket.
The kind of bed you select is also important for a good night’s sleep.
There are special mattresses and raised beds available for senior pets or particularly heavy animals to protect their joints.
Make sure you position their bed in the right place too. The ideal spot for this is in a quiet corner that’s still near the family.
Cats love having resting areas higher up, such as in a scratching tree or a radiator hammock.
Dogs like to have a view of the room too, but they shouldn't lie directly by the door as there's too much going on there.
