Benefits of Mattress Dog Beds

Mattress dog beds have many benefits, read our guide to find out the main advantages of a mattress dog bed for your pooch.

Dog beds come in all sorts of different shapes, sizes and types. The material and type of dog bed are one of the most important things for you to look for. Mattress dog beds are one such type of dog bed and are, in a way, very similar to the types of mattresses that we have on our beds. 

There are certain benefits that you get from mattress dog beds, in particular with memory foam. We’re going to take you through some of those benefits and show you why a mattress dog bed might be ideal for your beloved furry friend.

The shape

Dogs love stretching out on their bed after a long hard day of running around and chasing their tails. Mattress beds are ideal for allowing them to stretch out because of their long shape. Whether you have a dog that’s big or small, there’s a size that fits them and suits them. Some dogs love curling up into a ball when they go to sleep and mattress beds are ideal for them having the space to do both. 

It’s also important, particularly for young dogs that they’re able to grow into their mattress. Mattress dog beds are ideal for this as their large size gives plenty of room for them to fill over the years to come. You’ll want your dog bed to last, to ensure you don’t have to keep buying a new one and mattress dog beds ensure that they at least won’t grow out of it.

The material

The material of a dog bed is key to ensure that their joints stay as healthy as possible to ensure they’re able to carry on running around the fields to their heart’s content. Crumb foam, in particular, is excellent for ensuring their joints are properly supported whilst they sleep and they won’t suffer any joint issues further down the line. Crumb foam is also incredibly sleep-inducing so they should have no problem drifting off at night. 

Crumb foam also promotes proper insulation to ensure they don’t get too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter. It also ensures that they’re protected from the hard and often cold floors that they’re bed may be placed on. 

Car journeys

It’s likely you’ll want to take your dogs on car journeys, sometimes long car journeys and mattress dog beds fit perfectly into the boot of any car. It’s important you find something that is transportable because your dog will likely want to sleep whilst in the car. You’ll find that often after a long day of running, swimming and chasing, they fancy a short nap to re-energize. 

Check the dimensions of your boot first to ensure that it fits, the last thing you want is to buy a bed and realise it can’t fit in your small boot. The crumb foam material will ensure that they’re comfy whilst in the car and are ready to run around and play as soon as you arrive at your destination. They also slip-resistant, ensuring your dog won’t be sliding around the back of your car every time you turn a sharp corner.
