The Best Orthopedic Memory Foam Dog Beds in 2018

They say dogs start to imitate their owners, and that is very true of me and my dog. I feel hours spent in bed is not time wasted, but time spent in a luxury bubble of snugness.

Luckily for me, my dog feels the same so on the rare occasion I can spend half a day in bed, I have the perfect snuggle buddy.

My dog loves my memory foam bed, so I decided to invest in a memory foam dog bed that is just for her.

Why choose a memory foam dog bed?

They’re especially suitable for older dogs who will get aches and pains just like us. They’re orthopaedic dog beds to ensure the best night’s sleep your pooch can get.

Memory foam dog beds can help with muscle and joint pain, and wouldn’t we all do anything to help ease our dog’s aches and pains? If your dog has arthritis or hip dysplasia, a memory foam dog bed is a must!

Younger dogs can get a lot of use out of memory foam dog beds too as the very nature of memory foam is to provide correct support and comfort that will ensure they move about less and are less disturbed in the night. And isn’t that what we all want? A full night’s sleep even if you do have a puppy.

How to choose the right memory foam mattress for your dog

Unlike us humans, our dogs can’t go to a bed store and lie down on all the beds to find the right one (although it would be adorable if they could). So, we have written up the below guide to help you choose the perfect comfy bed for you dog.

Is it thick enough?

Imagine if your mattress was only 3cm’s thick, it wouldn’t be that comfy. Well the same goes for your dog’s bed, the thicker the mattress generally means the more orthopaedic the dog bed will be. And the comfier your dog will be.

Pet owners seem to agree that 5cm deep and above will provide the best comfortable mattress for your dog.

One thing to consider, if you travel a lot with your dog, is that the thicker the memory foam dog bed is, the heavier it will be. Some of the deeper and larger memory foam dog’s beds can weigh up to 10kg! That’s the weight of my dog! If you are planning on camping, or some other crazy traveling with your dog, consider going for a smaller, lighter option.

Is it Cleanable?

Think of how often you wash your bed sheets, now think about how much your dog smells more than you (we’re assuming you’re not smelly). You will need to keep your dog’s bed cover regular washed too.

We recommend choosing a dog bed with a removable machine washable cover, but if you fall in love with one without one, use lots of soft snuggly blankets so you can wash them.

Is it waterproof?

It probably should be waterproof, especially when it comes to puppies and older dogs as they can (through no fault of their own) have accidents.

If your dog is a spoilt little diva like mine and sulks if she needs to sit on waterproof material, you can make the bed more snug by adding a few blankets over it.
