Anyone can tell that we love our large breed dog just like a “real” member of our family. She eats the best food, formulated with joint health supplements and she plays with the best toys money can buy…well she did before she started sleeping most of the day and holding down the floor.

Speaking of which, if your large breed pooch is sleeping on the floor, or even on the bed with you, this can be problematic…especially if you have to share your bed with two many people and dogs at once.  You deserve a good night’s sleep…and your dog deserves a better sleeping option that protects her joints.

Nowadays, there are beds designed specifically for your dog’s breed and size that will give a pleasant sleep which no couch or human bed can match. Science has proven that size does matter and that large breed dogs are predisposed to joint problems. Fortunately for you and your dog, you can help mitigate these problems with an orthopedic dog bed this holiday season.

Veterinarians recommend well-padded bedding, such as an orthopedic dog bed, to ease the pain of arthritis that large breed dogs have a tendency to develop as they age. Many specialty dog bed retailers choose to do their business online, where lower overhead and larger selection mean that they can offer orthopedic bedding at a lower cost than brick-and-mortar pet shops. An online retailer such as Mammoth Outlet offers vet-recommended large breed specific orthopedic beds at reasonable prices and their beds are made with highly durable materials such as Canvas, Micro-fibers, and Cordura.

To ensure cleanliness, you should choose a bed that features a removable cover that can easily be machine washed. Select a bed that offers covers that are stain and mildew resistant, as well as water repellent. Beds that use a Velcro system with their covers are some of the easiest to keep clean.

Orthopedic dog beds are specifically designed to help prevent and alleviate issues like hip dysplasia, arthritis, elbow disease, Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD), OsteochondrosisDessicans (OCD) and many other skeletal issues. Visit to see how specially designed orthopedic beds can help specific breeds avoid skeletal diseases and joint problems, and how these beds bolster the legs and spines of large breed dogs to support them where they need it most. You should expect your dog’s orthopedic bed to come with a removable orthopedic pillow as well as plush covers that mold to and support your dog’s body.

Just like with your dog’s food and toys, you need to find a company that loves dogs as much as you do and also happens to design orthopedic beds. Check to see if the company has testimonials on their website, as those testimonials will give you insight into the company’s professionalism, and also be sure to select a company, such as Mammoth that’s considered a trusted dog bed provider for arthritic dogs that’s been in business for over 20 years. This holiday season, when looking for that perfect gift for your dog, be sure to look for a company that is devoted to providing comfort to special needs, senior and adult dogs, as well as puppies, you’ll know you’ve found a company you can trust to make your large breed dog’s bed.
