There are a variety of foam choices available to use for making a dog bed. Both your budget and your dog’s individual needs will help you determine the right kind for your canine. Each type is available in a variety of sizes with different options of fabric covers to choose from.
Solid memory foam provides comfort and support by molding to the contours of your pet. This helps alleviate pressure and allows your dog to rest and sleep better. Due to its firm support, this foam is recommended for older dogs, as well as pets that have medical issues. Dogs with arthritis, hip dysplasia, or other similar ailments will benefit from memory foam.
Shredded memory foam filling is also recommended for dogs with medical problems and provides many of the same benefits as solid memory foam in dog beds from Canada. In addition, the shredded foam can be maneuvered within its cover to provide extra cradling for your pet.
Eggcrate foam is an option that’s more economical while still offering quality comfort. This material is soft and can provide pressure relief and support for your pet. Also, due to its shape and cut, eggcrate foam is a breathable material which will help keep your dog cool.
Another option for creating custom cushions for your pet is shredded HD-R foam. This material provides a cozy place for your dog to rest. It’s durable, long-lasting, and encourages quality sleep. Since it’s shredded, it can be easily shifted around within its cover to create optimal cushioning and support.
