The BuddyRest Story

 

Hi, I'm Trevor, the President and Founder of BuddyRest. The handsome guy in the photo below is my dog, Buddy. He's the inspiration behind the company, and the reason we put so much care and attention into every dog bed we make.

The BuddyRest story started years ago, with a routine visit to the vet. They warned me that Buddy was going to suffer from stiff, painful joints and live a shorter life than other dogs. I was told that big dogs like Buddy live on average 4 years less than smaller dogs - frequently due to conditions such as arthritis and joint problems.

 

 

 

 

A Surprisingly Common Problem

The Vet told me he often saw dogs of all ages with these problems - painful swollen joints, arthritis, lameness, and general loss of mobility. Veterinarians have all types of treatments from pain medication to laser treatments and even stem cell therapy.  However, the ironic thing is often times, after all that treatment, those same dogs go home and end up sleeping on the tile floor.

As chance would have it, I was working in the mattress industry at the time and I knew how important support was to the body. I had seen it first hand how a pressure-free support had changed the lives of numerous people.

 

The Search for a Better Dog Bed

It was obvious to me that Buddy needed a better bed. The standard dog bed he was sleeping on just didn't support his body well enough. So, I set out to find him one. 

That's where things got difficult. 

As hard as I looked, I just couldn't find a dog bed that had the support like a human mattress. I saw a lot of cheap egg crate "orthopedic" beds that I knew were anything but supportive.

Unwilling to settle for second best, I decided to use my expertise to design a dog bed that ticked all the boxes. My reasoning was simple ... if the right mattress can have such a profound impact on a person's quality of life, shouldn't big dogs like Buddy enjoy the same benefits? It was that moment I decided to do something for Buddy and the millions of dogs out there destined to suffer the same fate.

 

BuddyRest - Then and Now

The idea behind BuddyRest was simple from the very start. To take the science and technology used in mattresses and apply it to dog beds. With the help of my best friend Jordan, we set about to do just that.

But we didn't do it alone. In order to create the world's first truly orthopedic dog beds, we consulted world-class veterinarians to ensure our beds were at the cutting-edge of sleep science and technology. Not only that, we sourced the most advanced, high-end materials that offer superior comfort and durability, eliminate odor, and repel stubborn stains and spills. 

But most importantly, our beds are designed to improve the lives of animals. BuddyRest is the only company with a true science-based approach to manufacturing effective pressure relieving orthopedic dog beds, calibrated to really work. We even make everything 100% in the USA!  

Today, our dedication to innovation and quality has been recognized with multiple prestigious industry awards. But we're most proud and humbled by the hundreds of testimonials we've received, sharing the difference our beds have made to the lives of thousands of pets around the world. 

We're also pleased to donate a portion of each sale to The Grey Muzzle Organization, which helps senior dogs in need.

OUR MISSION

 To improve the lives of animals with innovation and integrity.

 

OUR APPROACH

Our award-winning orthopedic dog beds provide unrivaled comfort and support. Made by dedicated masters of their craft, each BuddyRest bed is handmade with precision from start to finish. This process ensures you will receive a true work of art. We are a business that takes pride in creating the highest quality products for animals and people.

1. We endeavor to produce the greatest quality pet products that truly help animals.
2. We will not always win on price, but we will always win on value.
3. The way we operate our business is as innovative as our products.

 

RELENTLESS INNOVATION


We never stop innovating. By staying on the cutting edge of foam and fabric technology, we bring sleep science to pets! We were the first company to bring memory foam orthopedic beds utilizing the power of Crypton fabric. We also were the first to bring gel infused foam to the market in 2012. Over the years there have been many attempts to imitate our beds.  No matter how hard they try, our relentless innovation and American engineering always keep us two steps ahead of the imitators. Accept no imitations. Others may be able to create a similar looking product, but they can not duplicate our quality or match our innovation.
