I hated to acknowledge it at the ages of 7 and 8 1/2, but now at almost 12, and 13 1/2; there’s no more living in Denial land.
I have Senior dogs.
And while it’s a blessing to have old dogs in your life, it’s also a bit sad to watch them adjusting to the everyday changes in their bodies. Sampson has had two knee injuries and one knee surgery. While I suspect he’s had arthritis in his front paws for a while (over compensation for those bad knees) the knee and hip arthritis has only been diagnosed in the last couple of years.
We have Sampson on a protocol of supplements and pain meds that seem to be working for him. But since Sampson does an enormous amount of sleeping, I really wanted to get him an orthopedic bed.
Enter Brentwood Home Orthopedic dog beds.
You guys, Brentwood Home Orthopedic Dog beds hit all my criteria.
- They are made in the US (California to be exact).
- They are made with Pet Friendly, Non-Toxic Materials (CertiPUR-US certified foams that are safe to sleep, and chew on. (Not that I have any bed chewers mind you).
- The design is classic, so it works with any décor.
- The fabric is furniture grade with lock stitching to hold up against tug-of-war, messy treats and scratching. (Yes, I DO have two scratchers in the house).
- The cover is quilted and not only removable, but washable as well.
- Oh…and those CertiPUR-US foams I mentioned? There are two layers…the top layer is memory foam, while the second layer provides the orthopedic support base, these foam layers are protected by a waterproof liner, in case of any type of liquid accident.
Choosing the right size bed
So…I made a mistake when I was ordering the bed, and I did not measure the beds we have now vs the size of the beds on the Brentwood Home website, and I ordered an extra-large, (a large would have worked just fine.) Let me tell you, the bed is HUGE.
It is fully the length of a love seat, but it works for Sampson because he is a stretch out type of dog, vs Delilah who typically curls up. It’s also large enough for one of Sampson’s peeps to snuggle up in the front of the TV or fireplace and cuddle on a cold winter’s night.
I joked with Hubby that on those super cold winter nights, I might bring my blanket out and cuddle up in front of the fire…on Sampson’s bed. It’s that comfy!
Brentwood Home has two different styles of dog beds, so which bed is right for you?
Well that all depends on what your pet prefers.
The Runyon has the bolsters on three sides, perfect for using as pillows, or for the pets who like that additional security.
The Griffith has no sides, for those guys who like to stretch out, or hang their heads over the side.
What about color choices?
There are three color choices listed on the website, Sandstone, Charcoal and Mocha. The color we chose is called Raven, (it is like a midnight blue with a gray/white criss cross pattern), but it’s not listed on their website yet.
What if I’m like you and order the wrong size?
Well if you forget to measure, or just misjudge the size, Brentwood Home offers free returns within 30 days.
Warranties and whatnot
They also stand by the quality of their products, so the bed comes with a 3-year warranty.
AND…if something DOES happen to that cover, (you HAVE a chewer or a scratcher), you can purchase the cover separately. Isn’t that awesome?
