While the manufacturers go out of their way to emphasize the orthopedic quality and functionality of these orthopedic mattresses for older animals, many users do end up purchasing them for their pups-because they're so comfortable and durable.

Some users do say that the darker-colored Simien dog bed stains white materials, so it wouldn't be great for a white dog. Also, it's huge. So if you don't have a lot of space for the dog bed, you may want to investigate a smaller option.

Indeed, some users who have purchased a variety of dog beds in the past expected that their extra-large dog would be hanging off the end of it, the way he has with other dog beds, but they found that with this dog bed it accommodated his full size.

Another English mastiff user says that her dog fell in love with it-using it to take daily naps, as well as to curl up on in the evening for an extended slumber. 

Pros

  • Large size
  • Foam padding
  • Great for extra-large dogs,
  • Includes waterproof interior liner
  • Also includes a free Simien supplement package

Cons

  • The dark fabric can stain whites, at least initially
  • Too big for medium and small dogs.

FINAL THOUGHTS

The Simien dog bed gives large breed dogs the support they need and with it being 7-inch thick makes it easier for your dog to get up from the bed.

The H45 rated foam is of good quality and will last a long time, keeping almost its full original shape.

The downside is that the cover is thin so if your dog is a chewer or a heavy digger then this might not be a good fit.

Simien Company specializes in pet supplements to boost dog’s immune system and help dogs with arthritis and dysplasia, because they saw the need to give pets what they did not get in their foods. The Company took a step forward in dog’s wellness and created this bed for large breeds to give older pets the comfort and support they need with this 100% made in America bed.
