Durable dog beds for inside or outside usually cost a little more but will outlast and of the low priced models. Look for heavy duty support on frames and strong close stitched coverings for the most wear resistant models.
Wear and tear on a dog bed is constant. Your dog brings everything from dirt and grime to his favorite bone to chew on to their bed. And the size and weight of your dog can have a big impact too. The bigger breeds will cause more stress to the frame and coverings.
If you are looking for an outdoor durable dog beds, special attention to materials and placement are important. Always try and place the dog bed in a shading area out of the Sun, The direct sunlight and moisture will rot almost any material, especial any organic cloth or frame elements. The constant heating and cooling, plus the moisture are destructive elements that can shorten the lifespan of any dog bed.
Durable dog beds materials should be able to resist both wear and tear and exposure to the elements. Wood frames look good but will deteriorate quickly. Plastic is better but still susceptible to sunlight and UV rays, One of the strongest frame materials would be lightweight, resistant to UV, and made of metal not susceptible to rust. Aluminum or stainless steel would be good and both have superior strength against constant stress.
Speaking of durable dog beds, make sure the bed you choose can also hold up to your dog’s considerable chewing powers. The design of the dog bed shouldn’t have irresistible parts for chewing and materials should be strong enough to stand up to any attempts. No hanging items, knobs, or items that look good to eat. There are models available to resist chewing dog bed if your dog is known for that type of problem.
