Orthopedic Dog Beds for a Happy, Healthy Pooch

Many dogs struggle with joint pain and discomfort, just like us humans. In fact, over 20% of dogs will experience arthritis in their lifetime because of how they sleep. We all have seen it: our furry friend rejects the new dog bed and prefers to sleep on the floor. But hard surfaces are everything but healthy.

There’s a simple solution: orthopedic dog beds.

An orthopedic dog bed is a pressure-relieving mattress for your pooch. Unlike regular beds that flatten and provide little support, the dog bed cradles your dog's body, relieving pressure on their joints and spine. But to pick the right bed, you need to learn why they’re unique and a good choice for your pet.

What Makes Orthopedic Dog Beds Unique?

Compared to regular dog beds, orthopedic beds have unique features that help with ailments and a good night’s sleep. Here are a few examples:

Breathable Mattress

Orthopedic dog beds like the Cordi-Boucle come with a cool and breathable mattress. Your dog will stay comfortable without overheating. Plus, the removable pillow allows for easy cleaning.

Memory Foam Filing

Take the Kingston - Striped Canvas, for instance. The orthopedic memory foam flakes in these beds prevent sagging, offering consistent support. Your dog’s bed will maintain its shape, providing lasting comfort and relief from pressure points.

Adjustable Filling Level

Beds like the Cordi-Boucle have an adjustable filling level. You can customize the bed according to your dog's preferences and needs. Whether your dog prefers a softer or firmer surface, this feature allows for personalized comfort.

Safe and Quality Fabric

Not only are these covers stylish and pleasing to the eye, but they’re also Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified, ensuring they’re safe for your pet. Maintenance is also pretty simple as the covers are machine washable.

Orthopedic Dog Beds vs Normal Dog Beds: The Health Benefits

Orthopedic dog beds provide more than just a cozy spot for your dog to rest. The table below shows an overview of the general health benefits associated with orthopedic dog beds compared to normal dog beds.

 Health Benefit Orthopedic Dog Bed
Normal Dog Bed
Joint Support Memory foam fillings hug your dog's body, relieving pressure on hips, elbows, and spine.
Flat design offers little support, potentially worsening joint pain and discomfort.
Pressure Relief Evenly distributes weight, preventing uncomfortable pressure points. Lumps and dips create pressure points, disrupting sleep and causing soreness.
Spine Alignment Contoured design helps maintain natural spinal alignment, promoting good posture. Does not actively support proper spine alignment.
Sleep Quality Improved pressure relief and joint support lead to deeper, uninterrupted sleep. May offer comfort, but often leads to restless sleep due to discomfort and pressure points.


How to Choose the Right Bed for Your Pup?

You want to find the right orthopedic dog bed that will ensure your pup sleeps well and wakes up fresh and happy. Consider these factors:

Specific Needs and Size

Consider your dog’s size, breed, and any specific health requirements they may have. For instance, larger breeds need more space, and dogs with underlying conditions like arthritis benefit from extra cushioning.


Puppies need softer beds because they’re still growing and a soft bed is gentle on their developing muscles and bones. Older dogs, on the other hand, benefit from a firm bed for more support because their joints get achy or sore over time.


Dogs can get messy, that’s why you need an orthopedic dog bed with washable covers like the Ronny Cord Double Face. A machine washable bed ensures your pet has a fresh and hygienic sleeping space.


Since the bed will be in your bedroom or living room, you need one that matches your interior and still makes your pup comfortable. We put a lot of work and passion in our selections of colors and materials, so that you can create a special atmosphere in your home.
