Betty’s 3-year-old Labrador had stopped tossing and turning on his bed, while Jim’s 5-year-old arthritic golden retriever had been getting better sleep since they both bought the foam dog bed. With so many therapeutic benefits and comfort, it is not surprising that foam dog beds are becoming increasingly popular among dog owners. Most dog beds either have memory foam or latex foam. Both types of foam make for allergy-free dog beds and are hypoallergenic; therefore, they are suitable even for the most sensitive dogs. In addition, foam beds are dust mite resistant, so you have nothing much to worry about when you put your dogs to sleep on their foam dog beds.
Many orthopedic beds are made up of layers of foam, which can support each part of the dog’s body individually and evenly. It is essential to help reduce pressure points and ease the pain and discomfort of your arthritic dog. However, do not assume that your dogs do not need foam beds just because they do not have arthritis. Most dogs suffer from arthritis because they do not get proper bed support while sleeping. Remember that arthritis begins developing in dogs even when they are in puppyhood. So if you believe prevention is better than cure, buy your dogs foam beds like Caddis Orthopedic beds or Bed Buddies’ foam bed.
Foam has the potential to retain its loft, which explains why foam beds make the best beds to sleep on. The foam ensures that beds will not sink and conform to the dog’s body, thus allowing the dog to sleep in any position he desires. With so much comfort and support, your dog will no longer be seen tossing and turning on his dog bed.
If you have already purchased a wooden or metal dog bed frame or even a crate, just lay a piece of foam cushion, and your dog will be able to enjoy the comfort and luxury of sleeping on a foam dog bed.
If you are concerned that foam beds will rot due to condensation, then worry no more. Foam dog beds like those from Orvis come with waterproof liners to prevent such problems.
