Is there such a thing as a truly durable dog bed?

f you have cared for dogs for a few years you soon come to realize that there is no such thing as a truly durable bed that will last a dog it's 12+ years lifetime.

But when you think about it, we also have to get new bed mattresses, and of course, constantly update our bed coverings as they wear and tear, so why do we expect it to be any different for our dogs beds?

I think the first things to look for are things like:

Is the cover able to come off and be washed?

Can the dog scratch holes in the cover (or waterbed bladder)?

How heavy will the bed be if you need to move it for cleaning etc.?

Is it an all seasons bed, or does it only need to suit certain seasons eg: summer or winter extreme temperatures?

You can find out all you need about these things when you shop online.

In fact, I get a lot more information about products online than when I'm in the stores and trying to read inadequate labels, and getting no help from shop assistants.

And you can always email the retailer or manufacturer for more information when you have found the product online compared to going from store to store.

And the fact that you don't have to physically drag a huge dog bed all the way home is another reason to shop online and have products delivered to your door!

Have you guessed yet that I much prefer online shopping to pounding the pavement?

A lot of people (or their dogs, more specifically) really love the memory foam mattresses for dog beds.

I was impressed by this Customer Review for instance:

MY DOG LOVES THIS BED!!!, February 19, 2010

I just received my new memory foam dog bed for my Golden Retriever Gus.

Old Gus is now 9 years old and his hips are not what they used to be. Since he has been lounging on this bed, he just does not want to leave it!

The product is very well tailored and seems like it is made out of very high quality products.
