Your best friend needs a new bed. You’ve been doing your research, but you’re still on the fence. Do you get her a traditional stuffed dog bed, or do you get her a memory foam dog bed? Consider the following four reasons as to why a high quality memory foam dog bed will outlast a traditional stuffed dog bed. Memory Foam Dog Beds are Sustainable Dog Beds - 4 Reasons Why

 

 

Cost of dog beds

 

No doubt a big reason to not get your dog a memory foam dog bed is the cost. You can buy a stuffed dog bed for $50, whereas a top tier memory foam dog bed could cost you $300. You don’t even have a memory foam dog bed, why should your dog? It is best to look at the purchase of a memory foam dog bed as a long-term investment. A high quality memory foam dog bed could last your dog’s entire life. That’s right. In fact, Buddy Beds, one of the highest quality dog bed manufactures on the market today, estimates that their bed will outlast ten traditional $99.00 dog beds. In the long run buying one high quality memory foam dog bed at $300.00 will be cheaper than buying ten traditional stuffed dog beds.

 

 

Dog Beds Smell

 

You weren’t born yesterday. It is no secret that the main reason dog bed owners buy their dog’s new beds isn’t because the beds no longer work, but because they smell so bad the owner can’t stand to have the beds in the house any longer. Just because a company says their beds can outlast other beds doesn’t make it so, right? Sure the bed may be structurally sound, but if it smells so bad no one wants to be near it, well, what’s the point? Most high quality memory foam dog bed manufactures understand this. They know that dog beds smell, and they also know that memory foam soaks up smells. As a result many high quality dog bed manufactures will design their memory foam dog beds with an interior liner. These liners protect the memory foam. They are factory sealed around the memory foam of the bed, preventing everything from liquids, dirt, bugs, allergens, and most importantly, odors, from soaking into the memory foam. As a result memory foam beds do not trap smell, and because memory foam dog beds do not trap smells, they never need to be thrown out before they have worn out.

Memory foam dog bed covers

 

While the liners of memory foam dog beds keep the memory foam of a memory foam dog bed from soaking up smells, they are not designed to be in contact with your dog. Memory foam dog bed liners are made of materials, which should not come into contact with your dog’s claws or other sharp objects, and perhaps most importantly, the liners are not comfortable to lie on. As a result, an outer cover surrounds most memory foam dog bed liners. This cover is what your dog lies on. This cover is what soaks up any dirt or liquids, or smells that your dog may bring to her bed. This cover is designed to be washable. The washablity of these covers extends the lifespan of the dog bed. Not only can the dog bed owner clean these covers without damaging the memory foam of the dog bed, but the covers can also be replaced if something drastic happens to them. Just because the cover is damaged, does not mean the entire bed needs to be replaced.

 

 

Memory foam dog beds

 

While we have talked a lot about the longevity of the design of high quality memory foam dog beds, we haven’t actually talked about the actual memory foam of a memory foam dog bed.

 

Imagine a traditional bed pillow. Traditional bed pillows are stuffed with cotton or some such fabric. Over time that stuffing begins to do many things. The stuffing can clump together, it can spread apart, or it can flatten out all together. The same can be said for the stuffing of a traditional dog bed. Over time a traditional dog bed will cease to support your dog like she needs. Your dog could sleep on her traditional dog bed and her hips could still be in contact with the floor below her because the stuffing has clumped together. Memory foam, and in particular, high quality memory foam does not do this.

 

High quality memory foam will not spread apart, flatten, or clump together as it ages. In fact, the higher quality memory foam in a dog bed, the longer the memory foam will continue to react to your dog’s body heat and body weight.

 

While these are not the only reasons to buy your dog a memory foam dog bed, these four points will help you make the right decision for you, your dog, and your wallet, when buying a new dog bed.
