The Brindle 4 inch Solid Memory Foam Orthopedic Dog Bed comes with a waterproof velour cover and is suitable for dogs from 1-75 pounds, depending on the bed size. This bed is ideal for crate or car use as well as inside the home, and merges comfort and function resulting in a comfortable, multi-functional bed. The orthopedic foam provides cushion and comfort to aging dogs as well as those with joint or hip issues. Each bed comes with a 3 year warrantee through the manufacturer website.
The core of this bed is 4 inches of foam. The top two inches are memory foam with the bottom two inches a high-density support foam. This structure gives the dog a supportive foundation with a conforming cushion top, much like human memory foam mattresses. The memory foam conforms to the weight and pressure of the dog, providing relieve to achy joints, arthritis pain, and hip dysplasia. The foam is also naturally hypoallergenic and is resistant to dust mites.

Use and Care Instructions
The cover is very easy to launder, is machine washable, and has a zipper for easy removal and reinstallation. The foam is hand wash or spot clean only and air dry. Some users found that the zipper broke somewhat easily and that the zipper is not included in the warrantee. Replacement covers are currently not available.
Selecting the right size for your pet will depend on where the bed will be used and how the pet sleeps. This bed has been sized to fit in most kennels or crates, but it’s helpful if you measure the specific location before ordering a bed so you get a perfect fit for your space.
If the bed will be placed in an open space like a living room or bedroom, it’s important to consider how your dog sleeps and what would be the most comfortable. Dogs that like to curl up may want a smaller bed, whereas those that sprawl out will want plenty of space. A good rule of thumb is to measure the dog from nose to rump and then add 10 inches to ensure they have enough space.
The bed is lightweight and is easily moved between rooms but some users found it helpful to have more than one bed if the dog frequented the living room and bedroom, and in homes with multiple dogs since most dogs don’t like to share this bed.
