Having an orthopaedic bed for your dog does not necessarily mean that it is physically unhealthy, it is just comfy and best bed they can have their rest on. The orthopaedic beds are made of thick high density foam that keeps the dog away from the hard floor. It is large enough for them to stretch off relieving their aching bones.

Below are some of the points you need to take into consideration when considering a good orthopaedic bed for the golden:
The size or length
It is very important to measure the golden’s length and add about 10 inches to make sure the bed fits them perfectly. In most cases, the large beds are most suitable for the golden retrievers.
For a good and peaceful sleep, the foam of the bed should be thick enough. A too thin bed would cause discomfort as it will be pulled too close to the ground by the dog’s weight. A bed about four inches thick or even more would be suitable for a golden retriever.
It is important to promote hygiene. Make sure to get a dog bed that is cleanable or in other words a bed with a cover that comes off for cleaning. Also make sure that the fabric of the bed does not trap hair since the golden retrievers have long coats that shade off sometimes.
