Like many products today, there are so many options for dog beds that it may be confusing to find just the right one for your dog. But for those people that are trying to choose all-natural and organic products when possible, you may be surprised to know that you can have an organic dog bed as well. If you are interested in all-natural and organic materials, then a latex dog bed might be what you are looking for.
Latex is made from all-natural rubber from the rubber tree, making an all-natural latex foam rubber. This foam rubber is much heavier and denser than typical foam beds, adding extra comfort and support. The denser material is up to three times the weight of plastic based polyurethane foams and has less air, making it hold its shape longer than a typical cushion or other foam pad.
Latex is a very healthy material and serves as an excellent source of comfort and durability. It is naturally antimicrobial and hypo-allergenic. Additionally, latex foam prevents development of bacteria and other foreign dirt. Although you wouldn't need as much maintenance with a latex bed, it is one of the only truly washable foam materials, making the care of your dog bed even easier.
A latex dog bed will stand up to every element outdoor or not. Many beds if made with cheap materials will develop mildew. Natural latex beds also repel dust mites, making this material perhaps the healthiest option available for your dog.
Durability is another great quality in natural latex dog beds. Although it is completely biodegradable, it can last as a bed for up to 30 years before it starts to wear out, making this the only bed you may ever need to buy for your dog.
As we all know, comfort and support are very important elements when looking for dog beds. Your dog's bed will be something that he or she uses everyday and depends on for comfort and even a sense of security. All-natural latex beds are much more comfortable than a typical dog bed as the material actually has memory and will conform to the shape of your dog. And if comfort, support, durability and natural material weren't enough, latex foam rubber has a luxurious feel to it, so you don't have to compromise anything - your dog can have it all.
Searching for a durable, mildew free, outdoor, long lasting solution then an all natural latex foam rubber dog bed is for you. Your dog will thank you.
