Older dogs tend to enjoy a nice warm bed. Dogs that once eschewed
the comforts of home tend to enjoy them now. A soft bed made
from orthopedic foam can help relieve pressure points. Some pet
equipment manufacturers have developed electric heating mats that
radiate constant warmth for the dog. If you use one of these, be cer-
tain that the cord is hidden so your Golden can’t chew it and get
electrocuted.

The stairs that were once only an obstacle to your puppy now
may become a real problem. If you can, move his crate or bed to the
lower part of the house so he doesn’t have to climb stairs anymore.

Ramps can make it easier for your Golden to get in and out of
cars and on and off of furniture. If stairs are still no big deal, you can
buy movable blocks of steps that make it easier for your Golden to
get up to his favorite spot on the couch.

Give your Golden a soft bed to make his joints more comfortable. This is Brandy.
