When shopping for the perfect dog bed, features such as comfort, durability, and

support are top of mind for most dog owners. All these features are important but

don't forget to choose a bed that will remain clean and hygienic throughout its

lifetime. This is especially true if you have an aging senior who may have issues like incontinence.

If you want a bed that'll stay fresh and clean no matter whatever life throws at it, it's vital to

choose a dog bed that's 100% waterproof. That may sound obvious, but it's not

always easy to find a waterproof dog bed that lives up to expectations.

In this post, we'll share our top 4 tips for choosing a fully waterproof dog bed that's

durable, reliable, and will stay fresh and clean for years to come.

1) Choose a Bed With a 100% Waterproof Fabric Cover

Modern, high-quality dog beds feature fully waterproof covers that keep messy spills

on the surface - even oil from your dog's coat won't permeate the fabric! Crypton

fabric feels like soft suede to the touch but acts like a tarp to repel stains and

liquids.  Learn the Truth About "Waterproof" dog beds

2) Look for Anti-Bacterial Fabric

The best dog beds have anti-bacterial waterproof outer covers. Crypton fabric covers

use advanced technology that prevents bacteria and mold growth. This helps keep

your dog safe by preventing allergens and harmful canine skin diseases.

The antibacterial fabric also stays fresh and clean for long periods of time—so covers

rarely need washing!

3) Check for Durability of Materials

First-rate waterproof dog beds use durable materials that will stand up to daily wear

and tear. Look for features such as chew-resistant fabric, kevlar stitching, and

hidden protected zippers. Dog bed manufacturers that pay careful attention to these

small details produce dog beds that can truly last your dog's lifetime.  Looking for a waterproof orthopedic bed? Click here to discover the differences.

4) Make Sure it is an Orthopedic Dog Bed

Orthopedic memory foam dog beds have proven time and time again that they are the best choice when it comes to sleep health and support. Conventional dog beds are bad for your dog's joints and spine which can lead to problems like arthritis, hip dysplasia, and other health problems.
