Memory Foam Dog Beds
Once you touch the stuff, you know it’s something different. Press down on it and memory foam molds to the weight placed on it. Every time your dog lies down it becomes a custom-made, custom-fit sleep spot that springs back after your dog gets up. There is nothing else like it.
This makes it lovely for all dogs and an especially nice choice for older, achy or overweight companions. Giant breed dogs, such as Great Danes, Mastiffs, Wolfhounds, etc, all benefit from a thick memory foam bed.
Here are a few popular memory foam dog beds to consider:
Cooling Dog Beds
Dogs do not sweat. They cool themselves by panting. They will seek a cool spot to lie in or make their own by digging a resting spot in the shade. Cooling beds help dogs stay comfortable when it is hot out.
While all dogs appreciate a cooling bed set in a shady spot, they are critical gear for the heavy-set and/or short nosed breeds who can dangerously overheat quickly such as Pugs, English Bulldogs, French Bulldogs, Rottweilers, Pekingese, Japanese Chin. These breeds, and others like them, must be kept cool.
Heated or Self-Warming Dog Beds
Self-warming doggy beds reflect the pet’s own body heat back to them using a reflective inner liner.* This creates a subtle warming for pets who are lying on it while having no cord to worry about. Keep in mind that the bed will not feel warm to your touch, so don’t be surprised. self-warming dog beds are awesome for that pooch that’s always cold!
The beds listed here are well rated and are good choices for older dogs, dogs recovering from surgery, arthritic dogs, dogs who like to be warm but you don’t, for whatever reason, what a corded bed or for a bed that you want to put someplace where electricity isn’t easy to come by such as in a car crate in the winter.
