We are dog bed aficionados around Casa Hawkins. But our newest bed takes the cake as far as dog beds go. I mean, its so comfortable, I would curl up on it! Friends… let me introduce you to the BuddyRest Deluxe Orthopedic dog bed. The BuddyRest bed is made of 4.5 pound high quality True Comfort® visco memory foam made right here in the U S of A!
Since Turk and Rufus are approaching elderdog status, I’ve had to start thinking about purchasing items that will make them more comfortable as they age. Rufus recently was diagnosed with bulging discs in his back and with as many walks as we’ve been giving Turk lately, his bones and joints have been getting quite the workout.
Why would their health issues affect our choice of dog bed? Well, the BuddyRest Dog Bed is veterinarian recommended because it relieves arthritis pain and reduces joint stiffness. According to their website, “BuddyRest beds conform to your animal’s body, evenly redistributing their weight across the surface. This eliminates the painful pressure points on their joints and hips. Memory foam is a proven technology that decreases pain and stiffness in your animal.” Yep. It’s like Dr. Scholls, but in bed form!
And while lots of dog beds claim to be the best, they don’t even compare to BuddyRest…and while all the joint relief and arthritis relief and awesome sleep for the pups stuff is awesome, I also love that there are a few perks for me too, such as:
- Stays clean
- Doesn’t smell over time
- Doesn’t break down or get dips
- Chew resistant
- Prevents bacteria
- Repels hair, stains and odors
- 100% Waterproof
- Keeps pet at optimal temperature
- Easy to spot clean or machine wash
When this bad boy arrived, I’ll admit, I was a bit intimidated. At 33 x 40 inches, it looked like a baby’s mattress. The dogs actually were a bit freaked out by it at first, too. But after a little while, the dogs claimed it as the prized bed of the house. Turk can now be found lounging on it on any given day, and Rufus has even been known to forgo the top of the couch for the BuddyRest.
Besides all the health benefits and ease of cleaning, the thing I like the best about the BuddyRest bed is that you just buy one and you are DONE.
One BuddyRest bed will last for your dog’s entire lifetime. So while the price is a bit spendier than the typical pet store dog bed, you are getting the highest quality and since you are only buying one, you are actually saving money over time. And who doesn’t love saving money? Oh, and the beds are backed up with a 10 year warranty. That’s unheard of in the pet products industry.
So needless to say, we are big fans of the BuddyRest bed. Annnnnnd they are made just a few hours down the road from Kansas City in Wichita, KS! So do yourself a favor and check them out… especially if you have an elderdog… you won’t regret it!
