I bought a non-toxic mattress for myself and thought my dog should have a healthy bed too. To my surprise, a toxin-free pet bed can be hard to find.

Why you should buy a Chemical free Dog Bed & Cat Bed

Our pets spend almost all day on their bed or on your couch that could be filled with chemicals. The truth is the textile industry as a whole is loaded with chemicals, from the way it’s grown to the manufacturing process (unless you get something made with the same process as my sheets).

Test results showed your pet’s beds may be full of chemicals! An independent study was done on pet beds that had all or some materials produced in China. They discovered lead, arsenic, bromine, lead, mercury (directly linked to cancer) and other dangerous toxins in dog beds. A different study done in 2008 by EWG stated that dogs and cats test results showed they had 48 of 70 industrial chemicals tested and many of their levels tested higher than found in humans! One example is the test results showed cat’s were 23 x’s higher in flame retardants.

Reducing your pets toxic load is 1 of the top 2 recommendations for preventing pet cancer. *Here I also list other ways to reduce toxins in our everyday life.

In this blog, you’ll find dogs beds NOT made in China. These chemical-free pet beds provide the support and durability you are looking for. Whether your pet has joint issues, likes to rip up their bed, or you want it to fit a lifestyle such as plant-based or vegan, I have some options for you!

*Please note some of the information you will find here may not be easily found on the companies website. I contacted them directly to verify some of these details.

You can buy this CertiPUR dog bed in 2 versions, One is a rectangular bed with no bolster and the second is a bolster dog bed (dog bed with back and sides, pictured here).

*Certification definitions found here or the short version is GOTS and GOLS have most restrictions making them the best options and CertiPur has fewer chemicals than regular polyurethane foam.

I am excited to learn that this dog and cat bed allows you to completely remove all the material and wash the cover by itself! Some pet beds do not have removable covers and if they do, you may be only able to pull out the bottom layer but not the bolster layer. Additional they have a replacement cover you can buy if needed!

This ped bed comes with 4 different filling options to give you the right pet bed firmness for your cat bed or dog bed. It comes in 3 sizes: small to large.

  1. A soft dog bed made of pure wool {Humanely raised sheep, wool is a natural flame retradant}.
  2. A medium-firm pet bed made of Wool & latex. Tip: I have found Latex Cat beds and latex dog beds to be a popular choice.
  3. If you lead a vegan lifestyle, this plant-based pet bed is made with organic cotton for a medium-firm pet bed.

Like humans, pets have a sleeping style and health issues that may determine which pet bed they find comfy. Although this only comes in a rectangular bed and not bolster or pet couch, the description may help you determine the right feel for your pet.

Temperature regulating dog bed

If your dog always seems hot or you find them laying on the floor often, this may be the ideal dog bed for a dog who runs hot. Also, one layer stretches and therefore it may stand up to “digging” better.

Temperature neutral dog bed details:

  • Dog Bed Certifications: Certipur foam
  • Dog bed for a dog who is always hot: keep your pet more comfortable and off the floor
  • Dog bed filling: Pressuring relieving layer made from recycled ingredients and several layers of foam, 5 ” total thickness
  • Dog bed Cover: Antimicrobial, resistant to smells, can stand up to nesting/digging and has a washable cover
  • Sizes: 3 sizes available. (Small: works for a small dog as well as a cat bed)
  • Dog bed warranty: 100-day trial and 1-year warranty

This is not a cot dog bed. Although those make get good air flow, I can’t imagine laying against the pole frame is comfy.

Toxin free extra large dog beds

There are beds for big dogs like Great Danes. You can choose from beds made from CeriPUR foam or a non-toxic crib mattress.

  1. Sharon Vertucci says:

    Cats need different shaped beds. Mine like to cuddle. I notice the higher the back is the more they choose that to sleep in. I have 2 brothers that will relax ( oh the life they have..lol) on the big flat but fluffy dog bed.
    So wondering if you might start selling cat beds specifically?

  2. Thomas Jameson says:

    It’s good to know that dog beds that aren’t made in China will have a lower risk of chemicals and causing your dog to get cancer. My wife and I love our dog, and we’d like to get him his own bed so that he stops sleeping in ours. We’ll keep this information in mind as we continue to search for the right bed,

  3. Gillian Babcock says:

    My brother has dogs and he wants to provide a pet bed for them. It was explained here that when looking for a bed, he should make sure that the bed has dog certifications before using. I’ll pass that along.

  4. Deena says:

    This is so important considering all the time a dog spends on his/her bed. Thanks for the helpful information.

    • Melissa says:

      I agree…. I consider myself a good pet owner and never considered this. Mine are orthopedic foam. Is that the good kind?

      • Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails says:

        Check to see if your dog bed has a tag (like a mattress tag) to see if it says Polyutherane or CertiPUR foam. If it says the later, it has the least amount of chemicals in foam that makes your dogs bed.
