Is Your Dog Suffering From Arthritis? Get Him A Buddy Bed | Dog Beds For You

Hi Everyone, this is Debbie the owner of Buddy Beds. We LOVE seeing your comments on our orthopedic dog beds. Thank you. We are very, very proud of the quality of our beds.

I would like to comment on a couple things that Rick said. First there are clearly different qualities of memory foam. The industry grades memory foam into basically 3 categories. First there is 3 pound memory foam. This means — in very general terms — a 12 inch square of foam weighs 3 pounds. 3 pound memory foam is ‘adequate’ memory foam. It is very light and has been know to loose it’s ‘memory’ over time. The next grade of memory foam is 4 lb. memory foam. This is the quality of memory foam most humans have on their beds. And lastly, there is 5 pound memory foam. This 5 pound memory foam is the very best quality of memory foam available in the marketplace — absolutely none better. We at Buddy Beds use a 5 pound memory foam.

If you are shopping for a memory foam dog bed, it is important to ask what grade of memory foam they are using. And believe me. . .if they are using a 5 pound memory foam. . .they will tell you! If using a lesser grade memory foam — well, often the details of which grade are left out.

Lastly, our waterproof, breathable protective liner is patented. Therefore, no other dog bed is able to offer you the unique combination of memory foam with a waterproof breathable liner like Buddy Beds.

While I am mentioning things to look for when purchasing an orthopedic memory foam bed, may I also recommend that your memory foam bed have a supporting layer. This is a critical step–but also an expensive step so you will not see it in all memory foam beds.

Why it is important is, should you have a dog bed made ONLY from memory foam — the longer your dog sleeps or rests upon the memory foam– he/she will continue to sink deeper and deeper into the bed until ultimately hitting the floor. This is called ‘bottoming out”.

Once your dog bottoms out on the hard floor — pressure points are created and you have just defeated the whole purpose of investing in memory foam. Buddy Beds permanently glues the memory foam to a layer of 3 inches of supporting foam. This supporting foam keeps your beloved Buddy up off the floor so the memory foam can do it’s magic.

Lastly I am proud to say that Buddy Beds has received the prestigious Animal Wellness Seal of Approval. This seal of approval is granted after their rigorous in-house testing. We are very proud to display this coveted award, and we also thank the many Vets who have approved and endorsed Buddy Beds.

Again thank you all for your gracious comments. Our goal at Buddy Beds is to improve the quality of life for our beloved Buddys!!

Factors To Consider In Buying Dog Ramps | Dog Beds For You

Was there ever a time when you had backaches trying to carry your heavy dog onto your bed? Or, do you feel a tinge of pity whenever you see your prized pooch, already of old age, having a hard time getting into your car on your way to a summer getaway?

If you answered yes to the above questions, then you are just one of the many dog owners out there who are experiencing such dilemmas. You see, being in such situations is definitely hard on your part, more so if you really love your dog so much. If you can’t bear the sight of your dog helplessly trying to step onto your bed and if you don’t want to be burdened by carrying your pet, you can actually have your pet use dog steps. Such products are suitable aids for dogs suffering from hip dysplasia, arthritis, old age, or even for overweight or significantly small dogs that just cannot reach places like couches, beds, cars, or trucks.

However, the bottom line in having dog steps is their purpose on your pet’s everyday activities. As such, it is important that you take note of the factors that should be considered when buying dog steps. Here are some pointers for you to remember:

1. The height of the steps should be appropriate. Remember that dog steps are meant to help your pet reach certain high places. As such, you should be choosy when it comes to the over-all dimensions of the stairs. Be guided by the following when choosing the appropriate width and height of the stairs perfect for your dog.

Width: 12 inches: for extra small and small dogs that weigh less than 20 pounds 14 inches: for medium dogs that weigh less than 35 pounds

16 inches: for large, extra large, and dogs that weigh 200 pounds or more

Height:
between ten and 14 inches: used in couches, chairs, low windows, cars, vans, trucks, or SUVs between 17 and 29 inches: used to set a height parallel to beds or high window ledges

2. The materials should be of good quality, if not of premium ones. Remember that you should get your money’s worth and your dog should really benefit from the product. Learn more about the materials of the stairs before actually having your pet use them. For instance, the wood used should be of the durable type and the treads should be covered with equally-durable carpet or upholstery. More importantly, keep in mind that the stairs should provide years of service to your dog and not merely going to stand for a short period of time.

3. The dog stairs or steps should be easy to use, lightweight, washable, and portable. Go for the type that you can assemble within seconds or minutes, and can be carried anywhere you go. The steps should be lightweight enough so as not to pose as a burden on your part. Take note that some dog steps have optional wheels or handles which make them highly convenient to use. In the same manner, the steps should be easy to clean. Moreover, check out if they have extra storage compartments. See if the treads can actually be lifted or opened into a storage space or try to look for hinges on the steps that actually make for drawer-type storage areas on the stairs. You can use such compartments for keeping collars, toys, brushes, and other accessories.

What's In Store with PVC Dog Beds | Dog Beds For You

0

Are you one of those people who think PVCs are only used for plumbing? Well, this article will make you realize that these plastic tubings are more than just materials used for sinks, houses, or buildings.

You’re naivety is understandable because this type of bed is commonly overshadowed by the more fancy makes and models in the market. However, this doesn’t mean that you should ignore its merits. PVCs can actually be fashioned into a good old bed for dogs. This type of bed has cool features that you may want to see first in order to believe it. For this reason, here are some of the things why you should consider PVC dog beds to be nothing short of wonders:

1. PVC dog beds are closer to the ground. This feature is a big help for dogs, especially the senior ones, as they can easily get in and out of it. This is also helpful on your part if you own big, heavy dogs like Dobermans, Siberian Huskies, Boxers, Great Danes, Malamutes, and German Sheperds. With this, you don’t need to manually carry your pooch to its bed, which can sometimes be quite an ordeal. Since PVC beds are elevated, your dog no longer have to suffer from sleeping on those cold, hard surfaces. Not only does it help your pet avoid getting sick, you also don’t need to worry about your dog having a broken sleep.

2. They are chew-proof. Since most dogs love to chew and bite things off, PVC beds have sturdy materials that can withstand any amount of chewing and biting. In which case, you don’t have to worry about torn foams anymore.

3. They are great for dogs that suffer from joint and hip problems. PVC beds provide firm, orthopedic support that are greatly helpful for dogs with aching limbs and joints. This means that your pooch will no longer have any discomfort in sleeping.

4. They can be cleaned easily. You can clean this bed by soaking it in water and putting a small amount of detergent. You should rinse it well and allow it to dry before your dog may use it again. With heavy soiling, it can also be brushed with more soap.

5. They are lightweight, portable, and non-corrosive. You can bring this thing anywhere you go – in the park, the beach, or just wherever you and your dog would wish to be. Considering that it’s a lightweight, you can simply bring it without straining your muscle. The material is also non-corrosive, so you won’t have to worry about the bed developing any form of rust. Needless to say, this versatile bed is a real indoor and outdoor wonder.

6. They come in exciting colors. PVC beds come in many colors. Thus, you’ll have less trouble picking the best for your dog. There are also other variations to think about such as the combo, which features two different colors. This creates a more stylish appearance than a monotonous look.

The next time you’re in a hunt for the bed of your prized pooch, try this one out and discover its many-faceted wonders.

Factors To Consider In Buying Dog Ramps | Dog Beds For You

0

Dog ramps are arguably among the most useful implements that you could provide for your prized caning friend. In fact, it is highly necessary for you to have one especially if your dog has difficulty climbing the stairs of your house, jumping into your car, or getting onto your bed. This happens when your dog is already of old age, nursing an injury, physically-challenged, too big or heavy to climb on any surface, or too small to reach a high place.

For the most part, dog ramps do not only aid your dogs passage from one point to another — either climbing up or going down — they also help your pet avoid injuries from constant or habitual running or jumping up and down on any high surface. This is because dog ramps require your dog to exert less energy and effort in climbing or walking toward their point of direction. This concept, as you may well observe, is naturally based on the law of physics. But to help you understand more about the importance of having dog ramps, here are some of the most important points that you should keep an eye onto:

  1. The materials used for the ramp should be durable and of high quality. As a general rule, these materials should be made of only the finest, sturdiest, most durable materials that can ably support the weight of your dog (preferably twice your pet’s weight) as well as provide years of service.
  2. The dog ramp should be washable. You should have more time playing with your dog and spending quality time with it, and not spending all day cleaning the ramp. Besides, the easy-clean feature of the ramp will aid you in keeping it safe from any harmful bacteria from the dirt and other refuse left on its surface whenever your dog walk on it.
  3. The ramp should be easy to assemble and utilize. If the ramp takes you hours just to figure out how to get it ready for use, just forget about it. You don’t want to spend too much time on something that will just drain your energy without it providing immediate benefit.
  4. In all ways, the dog ramp should prove to be safe and stable. It should allow for good traction to prevent slips or accidents.
  5. The dog ramp must be portable or foldable. The key here is mobility. As such, the ramp should allow you to move or carry it from one place to another. You should not be burdened carrying a complex ramp that consumes too much space and gives you a headache in figuring out where to put the contraption. In this case, a telescoping ramp will do the trick.
  6. The dog ramp must be lightweight. You are, in the first place, planning to buy a ramp so you won’t anymore experience backaches caused by carrying your dog on different places. Thus, go for the type that weighs light enough for easy handling.

Ideally, there are already various makes of dog ramps available in the market. You can choose from plastic, aluminum, wood, PVC-framed, or combination types. All you have to consider, besides the above-mentioned points, is the place wherein the ramp will be mostly used.
