When considering what the best dog bed for your four-footed companion is, you need to consider the needs of your dog and then what they might enjoy.
If you’re adopting an older dog, have watched your furry companion grow old by your side, or have early-set medical conditions, you might want to take a look at the LOAOL 4-inch Durable Waterproof Memory Foam Pet Bed.
This memory foam dog bed tries to balance comfort with what your dog needs: support.

LOAOL Waterproof Memory Foam Pet Bed Review
The last thing you want to hear about anything is that it’s “insensitive,” but in this case, the temperature insensitive memory foam won’t change during the hottest and coldest months of the year.
Some memory foam mattresses have a tendency to harden in colder weather or sag in the heat of summer but not with this bed.
This feature also helps it avoid the sinking feeling of memory foam, in which the heat of the occupant causes the mattress to give more compared to the surrounding material.
If you live in a colder climate and are more concerned about your dog staying warm, the temperature resistant material should hold up if you purchase a small heating pad (specifically made for animal use) and cover it with a heat absorbent material like a wool blanket.
This should help keep your dog warm and comfortable without sacrificing the orthopedic support.
Made to Last
The LOAOL Memory Foam Pet Bed comes with two distinct covers, one being a waterproof cover for the memory foam mattress and the other being the actual cover you see in the pictures.
The outside cover is made from 100% organic cotton and should feel akin to a new cotton t-shirt. The bottom of the provided cover is dotted with silica gel dots to provide a little more traction on the bed, making it resistant to being pushed or knocked around the room every time your dog wants to lay down.
The cover is replaceable, with zippers to open and remove the mattress when or if you decide the cover needs a wash.
Lastly, if you experience any problems with construction or material, the warranty has you covered.
Made for All Pets
Though it’s marketed for dogs, there’s no reason your cat can’t snuggle up in it by themselves or with your dog. It’s a good bed to have for any age or health status, no matter the pet.
Primarily, the bed will help reduce joint pain by distributing weight off weight-bearing points during sleep, while also reducing muscle stress – as the body doesn’t have to actively work to maintain a good sleeping position.
While you might be looking into orthopedic beds for your older dog, keep in mind that these kinds of beds are also very good for growing puppies and kittens as their bones strengthen! You can buy it while they’re young and let them grow into it.
Not Entirely as Advertised
Compared to the display pictures, the delivered product may not hold up to all expectations. The packaging can distort the polyester fiber filling in the bolster, or the pillow-like boarder on the bed.
The bed itself may seem hard and flat, but it is made to be resistant to a long period of continuous use. It’s not supposed to be an extremely fluffy, dreamlike experience; it’s meant to help reduce joint pain and muscle stress for older dogs.
In this regard, it achieves the main purpose. However, it may be less aesthetically pleasing or overly comfortable.
Not for Large Dogs
Larger dogs won’t get the most out of this dense memory foam. Their weight can cause an unequal distribution of the bedding or stuffing, as well as cause the lighter memory foams to sink until they hit the floor, making the purchase useless.
This product is designed to suit medium-sized dogs, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but this should be taken into consideration before you buy.
If you’re looking for a bed that’s large as well as supportive, then keep shopping.
There are numerous options on the market which provide a larger bed at a lower cost, but they don’t often include the bolster to support your dog’s head or provide a comforting surrounding material to snuggle into.
The design of the LOAOL Durable Waterproof Memory Foam Pet Bed Mattress is simple and classy and should fit in with any style you adhere to. This should work very well as a lounge bed to place in your living room for your dog to lay about in, while you enjoy your evening.
