RuffRest Ultimate Dog Beds™ are known for their durability, comfort, and functionality, making them a popular choice for crate dog beds. Here are some reasons why Ruffrest may be considered the perfect crate dog bed:
1. Durability: RuffRests are typically constructed with high-quality materials such as 900 denier nylon - 4x tougher than your average backpack - and reinforced stitching, making them resistant to wear and tear. This durability is important for crate dog beds since dogs may scratch, chew, or dig at the bed while inside the crate.
2. Comfort: RuffRest crate dog beds feature supportive padding consisting of high density foam for support, and memory foam for softness, providing a comfortable contrast and resting place for dogs. The cushioning helps alleviate pressure points and allows dogs to relax and sleep peacefully, even when confined to a crate.
3. Size and Fit: RuffRest offers a range of crate dog bed sizes to accommodate different dog breeds and crate dimensions. It's important to choose a bed that fits snugly within the crate, providing a cozy and secure space for your dog. Remember that pet bed sizes and crate sizes are not standard in the pet supply world, so you may have to shimmy your RuffRest into tighter crates, while large crates may have a bit of room leftover after insertion of the RuffRest.
4. Easy to Clean: Crate dog beds need to be easy to clean since accidents or spills can occur within the crate. RuffRest beds have removable covers that can be machine-washed, making it convenient to maintain cleanliness and hygiene. Remember to NEVER put RuffRest into the dryer, as the components will shrink permanently. Air or line drying is best.
5. Built-in Blanket: RuffRests all come standard with a hidden, integrated blanket that can be pulled out of the bolster pocket. On chillier nights, this blanket adheres and seals to the bed, forming a 3-season sleeping bag. This comes handy in case you forgot your dog's blanket at home or want to provide extra coziness in his crate.
It's important to note that the "perfect" crate dog bed can vary depending on individual dog preferences, crate sizes, and specific needs. It's always recommended to consider factors such as your dog's size, age, behavior, and any specific requirements when choosing a crate dog bed.
