How To Help Your Pet Love Their New Pet Bed
If you want your dog or cat to adore their bed, the first step is choosing the right one. Our pet beds are handcrafted in the USA with natural materials, offering orthopedic support and chemical-free comfort. With our super simples tips, your pet will fall in love with their new NaturoPet natural pet bed in no time.
If you’re introducing our natural pet bed to your pet after they’ve already had another bed, we’re confident they’ll quickly warm up to the orthopedic support and temperature control of the Natural Virgin Wool found in both of our pet beds. However, if your pooch has never had a bed before, they might not understand all of the greatness their pet bed has to offer right away. Here are our top strategies for getting your pet to love their natural pet bed:
1. Treats + Nature = Pure Bliss
The most effective way to warm up your pet to their new natural bed is by putting a few of their favorite treats on the bed right after unboxing. Once your pooch finds the treats and eats them, they’ll quickly realize their new pet bed is a great place to be. Repeat this several times over the first week and watch your pet fall in love!
NaturoPet Pro Tip: Be sure to set the scene by placing their favorite toys on their new bed, making it an adventure every time your pet checks out their bed.
2. Familiar Scents
Dogs are very sensitive to smell and often notice something they are used to because of the way it smells. Although most pets are instantly attracted to the scent of our natural ingredients, you can make their new bed familiar by adding well known scents. Begin by rubbing the bed with your hands and body to get your scent on it. Also, adding an unwashed t-shirt or old blanket in the new bed has been known to work great.
NaturoPet Pro Tip: To further calm and relax your pet’s experience, you can plug in a pheromone diffuser near the bed or spray a few drops of natural lavender essential oil on the bed!
3. Turn A Bed Into A Home
It’s super important to make your pet’s new bed as inviting as possible. We recommend placing the bed in an area close to you or in the location they normally sleep. To promote relaxation, we recommend adding their favorite blanket, toy or any other known item on the bed to start with. This will comfort them, providing a more relaxed transition into their new natural pet bed.

When buying a new bed for your pet, you truly do get what you pay for. Pet beds that are cheap, flimsy and contain chemicals will quickly fall apart, stain and release toxins in your home. By introducing your beloved pet to their natural bed with treats and familiar scents, they’ll fall in love before you know it!
