Sizing Up Your Dog

Does Your Dog Share Your Love of Art?

Humans have a variety of tastes when it comes to the art that graces the walls of their homes and favorite museums. Some people love abstracts, some love oil paintings, some love modern art, and some love art deco. But, do the dogs you love have an understanding and appreciation of art and other beautiful things? Many people erroneously assume that because dogs see the world differently than we do, they can’t recognize or appreciate works of art.
While it’s true that dogs see the world in two dimensions and we see it in three, that doesn’t automatically exclude them from finding beauty in a variety of art forms. Similarly, while dogs do not possess the full color spectrum like people do, they do see, recognize, and understand colors like, yellows, blues, and a wide range of shades of gray. Additionally, dogs have much better peripheral vision than we do. How does all that affect the way they see art?
Dogs have been shown to react positively to photos and images of their owners. That, alone, indicates their ability to cognitively process images and react to them, so keep an open mind when it comes to exposing your favorite pooch to the world of art. Think of it this way – you probably enjoy watching your favorite television show on a wide screen, high-definition, full color TV screen. Your dog sees the exact same show on a curved screen (because of his enhanced peripheral vision) and with slightly fewer colors. Even though he might not see all the colors accurately, he still sees all the images and action.
Just like people appreciate different artworks and art forms, your dog appreciates beauty and art in slightly different ways than you. Dogs are intelligent animals. They have the ability to learn their name, respond to commands, and look totally innocent after tearing up your favorite shoes or sneaking food off your countertops. They can, in fact, see art and images, and appreciate them from their own point of view.
Why Dogs Like To Sleep In An Enclosed Bed
How often have you looked for your dog only to find her sleeping soundly under your bed? Have you ever wondered why your dog does that?

You can replicate the feeling of safety and security for your pet with our Burger Beds.
Aside from fear, your dog might also sleep or hide under your bed when she’s experiencing a sense of anxiety. When there are overly friendly children or raucous adults around (especially strangers), that can cause your pet to feel anxious or stressful. Sometimes your dog may just long for the comfort of being tucked securely under your bed. The small, soft underbelly of your bed can provide that comfort. You can also get the same feeling form our Burger Beds. They’re soft and cozy interior gives your dog a sense of security no other bed can match. The temperature under your bed might be cooler in summer and warmer in winter – or just suit their particular preference.
Your dog might also hang out under there if there’s a lot of commotion going on around them. If you’re moving a family member in or out, tackling a construction project, or the kid’s are practicing a louder than usual musical instrument – all of those disruptions may not phase you, but may stress your dog out. When that happens, she’ll look for a safer place to chill.
