If you are a discount shopper like myself than you are always looking for some sort of deal or something at a discounted price. I have a few pets in my life now and they are always in need of a new place to sleep mainly because the previous beds they had didn't cut it when it came up to standing up to their abuse. Dog beds take a lot of abuse and they need to be able to resist a lot more than just teeth marks. When a dog is outside he runs around and gets dirty and when he comes back home he goes right for his comfy bed and lies right down. All this dirt just got transferred to his bed and if they aren't easy to clean then you are going to have a big problem. For the simple fact that I have more than one pet I need to be alert when it comes to discounts for my pet supplies.
I usually go through a few beds a year and so I have developed a few ideas for keeping your eyes open for great prices. The first thing you can do is go to your neighborhood pet supply store and see if they have any beds for sale. They almost always have new stock and need to get rid of their old ones. This is the perfect time to go in there and get what you need and want for prices well below their normal retail.
Another great idea is to go online and look for anything you can find on any auction site. People usually doing this are just trying to get rid of items they don't need anymore and you can always go in there and make out with a great deal. This is a great idea when it comes to bargain shoppers because you have the choices to choice from and they are almost always different so you are guaranteed something diverse.
It is a hidden gem that you can always use to your benefit. It saves you the time of going outside and also makes everything easy because it comes straight to you. The last little gem I recently discovered is that if you like making things on your own or like doing little projects with your family then making a dog bed is just as easy for all of you to do together. It doesn't take too much work or effort and the supplies usually come from your local arts and crafts store. There are many sites where you can find patterns and instructions on how to create your masterpiece. In the end it is certain that your pet will love his new bed and so will you.
