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 epecially true if you have an aging senior who may have issues like incontinence.
If you want a bed that'll stay fresh and clean 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
2) Avoid Waterproof Liners
Many cheap dogs beds use bulky interior liners that trap spills under the fabric outer
layer of the bed. Manufacturers of these beds often claim they're waterproof, but they
quickly become soiled and need frequent laundering. Waterproof liners also trap
heat, making your dog hot and uncomfortable in his bed. If a bed gets hot your dog will gravitate to a cool tile floor which is terrible for your dog's health.
3) 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.
Antibacterial fabric also stays fresh and clean for long periods of time—so covers
rarely need washing!
4) 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.
