Durability is number three on the list of the five key elements of the DoggySnooze dog bed.It comes with a special quality – a limited lifetime warranty. In other words, we assure the dog bed’s durability.
Now, let’s take a look at the design. The frame is made of aluminum and the corners are made of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene or ABS – a thermoplastic material know for its durability. Obviously, we cannot put a lifetime warranty on the bed layer and let’s face it, would you still want to that same sand or red colored bed after 20 years of use? The fact that you can replace the bed layer over time to match your furniture or décor is a very valuable feature.
We use high quality Cordura nylon fabric that will last a long time, but the lifetimes of dog beds are mostly challenged by its inhabitants.Some dogs have a habit of chewing on their bed. Being bored and lonely are common causing for chewing on items around the house, including their own bed. Besides the expenditure of renewing a cushion type dog bed often, cushion type dog beds are filled with foam that contain toxic materials. You don’t want your dog chewing on foam material – even foam that is classified as non-toxic. A dog bed can be chew proof or better still, chew resistant, where the dog has no place to start chewing on it. Some cushions are chew proof when they have no zippers, but that should not be considered chew proof. Any cushion can be chewed – actually, dogs love to drag it around and jiggle it vibrantly. The DoggySnooze dog bed differs from other nylon fabric dog bed layers because with the DoggySnooze, your dog has no place to start the chewing. We enclosed the connection points inside the bed frame. They can dig on the fabric, but digging to a point where it rips through Cordura takes quite an effort. If you have a dog that tends to chew do not install the bolsters, because that part is not chew-resistant.
The conclusion here is that a durable bed is one that has a metal frame with a bed layer where the connection points are enclosed. The frame will last forever and the bed layers only need to be renewed after years of use. The DoggySnooze dog bed is more expensive, but well worth the investment. Your dog will thank you for it.
