Memory Foam Dog Beds
With These Foam Beds, Excessive Snoring May Occur!
Those of you who sleep on a memory foam mattress know that memory foam provides the best comfort and support money can buy! Developed by NASA for the space program, memory foam is considered to be the most comfortable sleep surface ever invented. Why should your dog have any less? Find a terrific selection of memory foam beds for your dog. Dog memory foam eases the joint stiffness and discomfort that often accompanies aging and arthritic dogs.
Memory foams and gel foams help alleviate pressure on dog's hips and joints. They contour to their sleeping position and radiate the warmth of their body back to them. Because of these qualities, these beds are fast becoming a valued dog bed cushioning material. But before you purchase one for your dog, there are a few things you should consider.
Dog beds with memory foam do not create pressure points that cause discomfort or aggravate orthopedic conditions. These beds provide the absolute best in orthopedic comfort and support! Although ideal for older dogs, pooches of any age or breed will appreciate the comfort of a memory foam bed! The open cell nature of memory foam means that it contours perfectly to your dog. The breathable nature of the open cell foam also enables the bed to stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Does your dog overheat easily?
Memory foam is great for dogs that chill easily, but for those with high metabolisms, it might become uncomfortable. This has nothing to do with the amount of fur a dog has. Dogs shed or put on fur according to climatic needs, and can adjust to memory foam after a period of time. But for those who are naturally hyperactive, they might not adjust to memory foam.
Does your dog have difficulty moving after a nap?
It is important to find a bed that provides enough support to assist your aging dog when they attempt to stand after a nap. Memory foam is graded by pound weight. For example, 4 lb memory foam is denser, (thus, firmer), than 3 lb memory foam. If the description doesn't tell you the pound weight or use the words high density when describing its memory cushion, consider buying one with a 3-tier foam system. These systems tend to be firmer, but still employ a top-layer of memory foam for cushioning.
Does your dog like to lean his head on an arm rest?
In spite of the fact that a memory foam cushion will allow your dog to rest within the contours of his own body, those who like to rest their head above their body will still do best on couch-type beds with arm rests to elevate their heads. Most couch and day bed designs offer memory foam cushioning.
Is your dog a sprawler?
Dogs that sprawl with their legs behind them, (or on their backs), are comfortable with the contouring memory foam provides, but they need the ability to turn without struggling. Make sure the memory foam is at least 4 lbs or is supported by a three-tier system that provides this additional support.
