The Oh My Dog Orthopedic Dog Bed Review
The Oh My Dog Supplies orthopedic dog bed is constructed of 8 inch memory foam and micro-suede fabric.
It comes in four different sizes: small, medium, large and extra-large, and it is specifically designed to facilitate optimal canine weight distribution, to help ease joint pain. It is made in the USA- and includes a 10 year warranty.
One user who owns a mastiff that weighs over 200 pounds loves the bed. She advises to purchase this orthopedic dog bed with the head rest, saying that it provided extra comfort for her pooch.
This is another durable option that can accommodate large dogs like Akitas and Alaskan Malamutes as well as small dogs like Australian Terriers and Bichon Frises. Remember to weigh and measure your pet prior to purchasing a dog bed- the size of the bed will differ depending on whether you own a Boston terrier for a Briard (Source).
Remember to measure your dog prior to a dog bed purchase- or use a handy online sizing calculator.
A general rule of thumb is to measure your dog while he or she is lying down, adding 12 inches to that measurement, and you will have the ideal length of the dog bed. Another important consideration, especially if you purchase the extra-large model, is to figure out where you are going to put it.
It's easier to position a smaller bed for a smaller dog in living rooms, kitchens and bedrooms, an extra-large dog bed requires some forethought.
As well, another general rule is to do some research about which dog beds features are important for you and your K9- for example if your dog is older and suffers from arthritis, memory-foam padding, like this particular dog that has, could be a good option. If your pet enjoys camping out in secluded areas, you might want to check out a hooded dog bed- this will let your dog snuggle into a crevice and feel warm and safe.
Lastly, you should be on the lookout for is how easy the dog bed is to wash. As you can imagine, dog beds can get pretty dirty overtime so memory foam and orthopedic dog beds with removable covers provide an easy way to keep the resting spot clean for your animal.
