Kuranda, poly-fill, beads, or cedar what is the best for the joints? The Orvis site does not recommend cedar for dogs that hunt, cedar can interfere with a dog's ability to scent. I never have heard that before. This bed is for a dog that spends it's off hours indoors.
Kuranda beds are awesome! I have a young lab who loves to chew, so I ordered mine in all aluminum. The fabric is tucked inside the frame, rather than wrapped around it, so not as tempting to chew. Very easy to clean, just take a waterhose to it. Had mine about 3 months now and its working great. I bought an XX large, so both the big dogs lay on it too.
Only plastic part was the covers on the corners, which she did manage to chew on those, but the screws are still there! LOL
I get the cheap beds at Costco and buy more fiber filling at the craft store to plump them up. The Orvis beds are really nice but those darned little styrene beads are a pain in the posterier if the bed is chewed or the zipper breaks. I have a few Foster and Smith beds too. The covers are durable and when the Costco bed covers wear out; I measure and get the closest Foster and Smith cover. It's cheaper that way. My dogs all like to scratch the bed into a big puffy pile then snuggle into it.
Of course a big pile of dirty laundry that smells like their favorite people works just as well for them :roll:
