When it comes to memory foam beds for your dog there are a lot of things to keep in mind. You want to know the pros and cons before you make a purchase of a memory foam dog bed and that is completely normal. Designer dog beds have become very popular but that doesn?t mean you should buy one without knowing what it will do for your pet.

First of all, dog beds made of memory foam offer your dog all the support he needs in addition to amazing comfort. Your dog is like part of the family and you want him to be comfortable and that is exactly what he will get from his memory foam dog bed. There are dog beds that offer four inches of foam and these are great for smaller dogs weighing less than 100 pounds. Then there are dog beds with six inches of foam that are great for dogs weighing 160 pounds or less. Eight inch foam dog beds work for any size pet you may have and they are ultra comfortable. A bonus of these dog beds is they come with a zippered cover so that they may be removed and washed easily in the washing machine.

Memory foam was developed by NASA and it has proven to be the most comfortable surface for sleeping whether for humans or animals. No pressure points are created with this type of dog bed so your dog will always feel comfortable and wake up refreshed. This is especially true for older pets that may have arthritis or other ailments. Another benefit of this bedding is that during the winter the bedding is warmer and during the summer the bedding is cooler all thanks to the open cell foam that makes up these dog beds. The fabric and the foam are both made of commercial grade so they are long lasting. Your pet will love this dog bed if he is challenged in any way and even if he is not he will still love calling this bed his own.

There is one drawback to memory foam dog beds and that is the price. Most people don?t think of spending more than $20 or $30 on a dog bed and the memory foam beds cost upwards of $100, sometimes even more, in most stores. However, the benefit here is that your dog will be comfortable and the bed is long lasting. So, while you spend a little bit of money up front it will last much longer so you won?t need to replace it as often.
