Our dog beds are designed for indoor use, however an undercover area away from cold and wet weather could be fine.

How does hardness affect foam comfort?
Hardness is a measure of how the foam feels, not a measure of quality. For example, Ultimate Comfort HR36-110CM5, has a nominal hardness of 110 Newtons, when tested to Australian Standard AS2282.
The quality of foam depends upon the foam making process, and the products used to make it.

The answer is NO.... Memory foam originated from China manufacturers, and is highly toxic. It is neither been proven to be better for our limbs and ligaments.

Can i replace components of the bed?
YES!!! Every component of our beds can be replaced. However please note: It is the mattress you have invested in and want to protect the most. Any other component, whether it be 1 x bolster cushion or a new mattress protector or outer cover can be replaced.
Are the covers expensive to buy?
NO... The covers and other components of the bed are extremely reasonably priced... It is the mattress that is the investment and is the one component which will be the biggest expense.
Why are your beds so much more expensive than others on the market?
Let me promise you this. Most of those so called expensive beds on the market, use cheap imported foam, which in the LUXURY furniture industry is known for its poor quality.
In order to develop a bed to a standard, which uses foam developed in Australia and GECA certified eco friendly foam, it is costly. But in return we can offer a 5 year support, comfort and structure WARRANTY.
The other components of the bed are also eco friendly. 100% cotton covers and designer fabrics. Unfortunately natural fibre fabric cost more than synthetic ones, but they last longer and are much easier to rid of bacteria and pet odours. They are also better for our general health and well being.
