Pure bamboo sheets are great for people who like having a dog in bed. This is something more than half of canine owners enjoy because of emotional benefits, which result in a good night's sleep. Moreover, having a dog sleeping in bed with you is generally a good idea because of the known release of oxytocin hormones, which promote feelings of happiness.
With a Dog in Bed, Pure Bamboo Sheets can Give You Several Advantages
Sleeping with your dog can bring about certain issues, such as the shedding of dog hair that can become attached to your bedding. With our pure bamboo sheets, this is not much of a problem thanks to the tight twill weave of the fibers, which will prevent dog hairs becoming embedded in the fabric.
We know dogs smell, but do we really know why? For the same reason we do: Bacteria that breaks down protein molecules from the subcutaneous tissue to the epidermis. Since bamboo rayon sheets tend to resist the formation of bacterial colonies in the fibers, you will not have to worry about lingering canine odor.
Puppies and playful dogs will paw at your bedding, but you should not let this preclude you from allowing a dog in bed. The tight twill weave of bamboo rayon fabric will prevent dog claws from getting snagged on loose fibers. Cat owners can also take advantage of bamboo bed sheets; domestic felines are known to arbitrarily jump in bed and start clawing at the bedding. The durability of bamboo viscose fabric is highly ideal in households with pets.
When You Have a Dog Sleeping in Bed with You, You Will Have to Deal with Dog Hair in Your Bedding
Dogs shed hair for the same reasons humans do. When hair strands grow to a certain length, they will fall off to make room for new ones. Since canines have a lot more fur than we do, we will definitely notice this from a dog sleeping in bed. One way to minimize this is through brushing sessions before bedtime. Naturally, the brushing should take place outside of the bedroom.
If your dog has a nice and lush coat of fur thanks to periodic shampoo sessions, getting rid of hair on the bedding should be pretty easy. Place an extra flat sheet on top and use a lint roller to pick up whatever strands your dog lost overnight. The shampooing is important in this regard because it is easier to pick up silky hairs than greasy ones.
Finally, to completely get rid of any hairs that may have become attached to your bedding, be sure to place your sheets in the spin dryer for about a minute prior to putting them in the washer. Doing this will shake off excess hairs before the wash cycle. With our pure bamboo sheets, you do not have to worry about using laundry softener because they are naturally soft. However, you can add fragrance, if you wish, during the rinse cycle.
Sleeping with Your Dog Can Have Various Pros and Cons
We know that keeping canine and feline pets is ideal for families, particularly in households with children. The companionship bonds that form when owners sleep with their pets are mutually beneficial, but there are some risks that merit discussion.
Allergies will always be the main concern. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America warns pet owners who suffer from seasonal histamine reactions that their conditions may worsen if they sleep with their pets. In some cases, increasing the dosage of antihistamine medications may help, but only temporarily.
Not all dogs will enjoy sleeping with their human companions. Some of them may become restless, which will in turn interrupt sleep cycles. Pets with independent characters will look for an open bedroom door in the middle of the night so that they can walk around or feed. It is better not to push them into sleeping with you in this case.
