Brilliantly clever (kudos to NASA!) memory foam tops the thick inner of this bed. It really needs to be felt to be believed but moulds beautifully to the contours of a dog's body ensuring all over, even support.
Its low impact, dampening effect makes it ideal for older dogs, big or heavy dogs & dogs with joint problems. The wrap around zip makes the fully washable cover so easy to get on & off AND gives you the option to interchange tops between the black, water resistant, 600 denier, PU coated ripstop & the fluffy mock lambswool.
More about our Big Dog Bed
Memory foam is pretty amazing stuff. Often noted for its early use in absorbing the G-forces experienced by astronauts (perhaps overkill for this purpose unless you're sending your dog into space but an indication of how clever this stuff really is) its shock absorbing properties make it particularly ideal for big or heavy dogs.
Inside the cover you'll find the inner is combination of two foams. The top is memory foam & the bottom is what's termed 'load bearing' foam. It's there to support the dog's weight & is absolutely necessary for the memory foam to have the desired effect. As foams can be quite delicate, & this bed can be quite heavy, always pick the bed up by 'pinching' the cover, not the foam.
Our way of thinking - We've specifically designed the ripstop cover with as few seams as possible to maximise its water resistance in case of incontinence.
