About the Product

 

How do orthopedic memory foam beds work?

 

All BuddyRest dog beds are made with orthopedic memory foam. This means that they conform to your pet's body, evenly redistributing their weight across the entire surface of the bed. Unlike standard beds, orthopedic memory foam dog beds eliminate painful pressure points on the joints and hips. Dogs that sleep on orthopedic memory foam beds are far less likely to develop pain and stiffness as they age. Our beds also bring immediate relief to older dogs suffering from painful arthritis and joint problems.  

What makes a dog bed "orthopedic"?

 

Many beds claim to be orthopedic, but most of them are not. We use only the highest quality, genuine viscoelastic memory foam to make BuddyRest dog beds. With standard memory foam, the weight of the animal's body causes them to sink too far into the bed, causing pressure points and overheating. Our truly orthopedic beds are at the cutting edge of technology. They provide excellent support for the whole body, straight spinal alignment, and soothing pressure relief. 

Most pet beds on the market today are manufactured from inferior, low-cost materials such as fiberfill, scrap foam, and egg crate corrugated foam. These beds offer very little support and break down rapidly. They are not orthopedic and do not relieve pressure points or pain for your best buddy.

BuddyRest dog beds are different. We are the only company that manufactures genuine orthopedic dog beds utilizing real science.

What kinds of dog beds are NOT orthopedic? 

 

If you're looking for a truly orthopedic bed to support your dog's health, beware of the following claims: 

Orthopedic Foam
Egg Crate Foam 
Elevated "cot" beds
Shredded Memory Foam
Durafill
Fiberfill
Medical Foam
Foam Chips

These types of beds ARE NOT truly orthopedic and do not provide the correct support or pressure relief. Don't be fooled by claims such as "medical grade" or "orthopedic grade" - they aren't the real deal!

What makes your dog beds the best?

 

Here at BuddyRest, we go the extra mile to make the best dog beds on the market. We conduct extensive research - using tactile pressure mapping and pioneering science to ensure our beds are pressure relieving and truly orthopedic. We source the highest quality materials - our memory foam is the same material used in high-end human mattresses. We embrace innovation - utilizing high-tech materials such as Crypton fabric to eliminate the need for hot inner liners and keep the bed fresh and clean. Our support is world class and unmatched. And all our products are manufactured with precision right here in the USA.

But don't just take our word for it, check out how we compare to the competition.

 

Does made in the USA really matter? 

 

In a word, YES! It's part of the BuddyRest philosophy that all of our products are made right here in the USA. Why? Because making them here means we can guarantee their quality. BuddyRest products undergo 4 separate quality assurance checks before shipping. The majority of other beds on the market are manufactured in China from low-quality materials such as scrap foam and foam chips. Purchasing these inferior products means you're sacrificing quality, support, and even safety.

When you choose BuddyRest you're choosing a truly orthopedic bed with unmatched support, durability, safety, and functionality. From our fabric to our foam, everything is made in the heartland of the USA.

BuddyRest dog beds are not the cheapest on the market. But they are the best. They're made to improve your dog’s quality of life, and hold up over time. That's why a BuddyRest dog bed will be the last bed you'll ever need to buy.

 

Which BuddyRest bed is the best size and style for my dog?

 

When choosing a suitable dog bed, ensure your dog has plenty of space to fully stretch across the bed. It can be helpful to compare your dog’s existing bed size to get a good fitting. We recommend using a tape measure to visually confirm the area your dog currently uses in a comfortable sleeping position. Please keep in mind the fact that bolster beds have less internal space. For this reason, we suggest buying one size up. Currently, we offer several different sizes of beds to accommodate the vast majority of dogs. Special sizes are usually available for an additional cost.

How do I know my dog will like his new bed?

 

Our beds are designed to offer a comfortable, supportive place that a dog can call their own. Customers have told us that most dogs love their new BuddyRest dog bed the moment it arrives.  

A common misconception is that dogs prefer the softest bed possible. This is simply not true. Super-soft beds cause dogs to sink too far into the bed, misaligning the spine. You may have had the experience yourself of waking up with aches and pains after sleeping in a bed that's too soft! Our beds are medium-firm to provide the best support possible.

If you have a senior pet, it's very important that they can get in and out of the bed without struggling. It may sometimes take a few days for them to understand that the new bed is part of your home. They may also need to become acclimated to the way it feels. Please reserve judgement for up to a few weeks while they adapt to their new bed.

When introducing your dog to his new bed, be the pack leader and encourage him to lay down on it. All dogs are different - some fall in love with their new bed the very first night, others may take a few days. Rest assured that your dog will come to appreciate the super supportive comfort of his BuddyRest bed.

What if my dog can't adjust to his new bed? 

 

Given a proper period of adjustment we've found this to be very rare. But in the worst-case scenario you have nothing to worry about - we have the best return policy out there. You can return your bed for a full refund within 100 days of receiving your bed. We'll even pay to ship it back!

 

How do I wash the bed cover?

 

Our state-of-the-art Crypton Super Fabric cover is designed to effectively repel stains, bacteria and odors. Minimal cleaning is required with everyday use, but soiled areas can be spot cleaned with warm water. If the cover needs washing it can be easily removed and thrown in the washing machine. Simply remove the cover, wash on cold/cold gentle, then hang dry or dry on a low heat. 

 

Can my dog chew his new BuddyRest bed?

 

Some pet lovers would love to improve their dog's quality of life, yet can't because their furry friends destroy everything. Don't worry, we've got you covered. Each BuddyRest memory foam dog bed is hand-crafted with Kevlar thread. Kevlar is the strongest thread available. It's the same material used to sew bulletproof vests, and is almost impossible to break. The Crypton Super Fabric we use is also super durable, with a very high abrasion rating that stands the test of time.

We pay attention to the small details that make our beds the toughest on the market, such as sewing down the corners, and hiding the zippers on the underside of the bed. So, if your dog's a chewer, they've met their match with any BuddyRest bed. 

Please note that nothing is indestructible, and the root cause of most chewing is separation anxiety. However, our Titan dog beds utilize Kevlar and ballistic nylon and are as tough as a dog bed can be. Check out our tough Titan dog beds.
