Best Rated Memory Foam Dog Bed

Dogs are just like humans in a lot of ways.  One way we are especially alike is sleep.  We both do it (dogs considerably more), and when we do, we really enjoy being comfortable.  Unlike humans, dogs age quick.  Many breeds have joint issues and arthritis before they are even ten years old.  An investment in a memory foam bed can help a dog with these problems sleep a lot better.

About ten years ago “memory foam” was at its peak of popularity.  Many people tried it and haven’t looked back.  It’s definitely not a fad like the water bed.  Memory foam uses NASA technology to better, more technologically advanced night of sleep.


Benefits of a Memory Foam Dog Bed

Normal dog beds are stuffed with cotton, polyester, or a mixture of both.  They work great at first.  Often, espescially with the lower quality ones, they become and uncomfortable lumpy mess.  Eventually they have a very inconsistent cushion.  Memory foam does not have this problem.

A memory foam bed is significantly better than a normal dog bed.  This is due in large part to the process in which memory foam is made, and the many benefits that are derived from it.  The use of a memory foam bed can benefit both dogs and humans alike.

Here are some of the benefits associated with memory foam.

  • Memory foam beds are temperature sensitive.  As the temperature goes up, the bed gets softer.  This allows it to effectively adjust itself to the sleeping dogs weight.  The more comfortable your dog is, the better night of sleep that he can expect.
  • The memory foam dog bed contours itself around the dogs body.  It displaces pressure around the weight bearing contacts.  It achieves this because the pain points have a higher temperature.  This allows the dog to recover quicker from injury.
  • Memory foam promotes better sleeping posture.
  • Memory foam dog beds are made from polyurethane foam, which is an inorganic fiber. This fiber resists all mites that would feed off of your dogs dead skin.
  • Arthritis and joint pain relief.

We keep all of these factors in mind when determining this list of best rated memory foam dog beds.

Memory Foam Dog Beds are the Most Expensive Orthopedic Option

While there are many benefits to investing in a memory foam bed for your dog, it does come at a price.  Memory foam dog beds are expensive.  Although a memory foam dog bed will outlast a normal bed by quite a bit.  Most memory foam dog beds aren’t reversible either.  That’s because they use a solid base layer to elevate the bed, and then a layer of memory foam that’s a few inches thick.

Typically most premium dog bed manufacturers make claims that their beds are able to withstand urine, but most of them will take some damage.  If you have a younger dog, wait till they have got potty down perfectly before purchasing one of these beds.
