The Stella Beds Orthopedic Dog Bed Review
The Stella orthopedic dog bed is an interesting option. Its manufacturers claim that during the summer, its gel-foam technology will help to keep your pooch comfortable and cool, and during the winter months you flip it over and the egg-create memory foam on that side will let your dog sink into the foam padding helping to preserve their body heat (Source).
This extra-large dog bed has many fans- they applaud its three layers of support, the removable cotton cover, the waterproof backing as well as the one year warranty.
A Great Dane owner who purchased this particular memory foam dog bed describes how her pet had recently begun experiencing difficulty getting up from a prone position.
She says that this Stella Seasons bed maintained true thickness over time, instead of flattening out under her dog's weight, and provides the sort of durable and thick support for her giant dog while he sleeps. While a solid fit for her giant dog breed, she says that the extra-large could fit two medium-sized dogs pretty easily.
Remember to measure your dog prior to purchase- or use a handy online sizing calculator.
One user says that the two linings the Stella Seasons orthopedic dog bed includes are pretty useful- so when she is washing one, she can use the other and her dog is never without a place to lie down and go to sleep.
Additionally, the temperature control features don't appear to be a scam- with users saying that flipping the mattress to one side or the other for the different hot or cold seasons has made their dogs more comfortable.
It's important to remember that since this is a dog bed with extra-large dimensions that it is suitable for those sorts of animals like black Russian Terriers, Bloodhounds, Komondors, Kuvasvs, Newfoundlands and Old English Sheepdogs, for example (Source).
All that said, make sure that you take some initial measurements prior to purchasing one of these dog beds-just measure your dog while he or she is lying down and add 12 inches.
This will be the length of the dog bed you should buy. It's not a big deal if the dog bed you purchase isn't a fit-most online retailers offer hassle-free returns so you can always ship it back if it's not a fit, for whatever reason.

The Stella Best orthopedic memory foam pet bed consists of 1) A 3-layers Foam and 2) An Outer zippered Cover.
3-Layers Foam: The foam is made from 3 layers of different type of foams. 1) The egg crate foam on one side provides pets softness and it’s special for winters; 2) The reflex foam located in the center gives support and keeps the bed from bottoming out, and 3) The Gen II Hybrid gel memory foam on the other side that helps transfer heat away from your dog, keeping a comfortable temperature in the summer.
Outer Cover: The cover is zippered and has a soft faux sheepskin on one side with waterproof lining and it helps provide warmth in winter.
The other side of the cover has a soft cotton and has also a waterproof lining and provides coolness in summer. The waterproof lining does not have a cheap plastic crinkling sound.
The zipper of the cover is protected by a little pocket on one side to avoid being chewed by the dog. The cover is machine washable.
The bed comes vacuum-pressed to approx. 2 1/2″ and rolled in a box. It takes a few minutes to fully expand to about 6 inches thick.
