Love this! Got it for my GSD pup. Will definitely be ordering from here again once this bed gets chewed. But so far so good; the fluff seems to be making it less appetising for her haha.

My dog has another orthopedic bed, to which I am comparing this one, and this one just doesn't stand up. The inner foam didn't seem thick enough or supportive enough to be considered 'orthopedic'. Frankly, the cost was too high for the product.
The inside of this bed is more like egg crate material, with a more dense foam in the middle. I included a photo.

The AKC mat is comprised of composite (think particle board) chunks of foam, formed into a mat. The Memory foam is different product made of clear, new foam. Memory foam on human beds tends to trap heat and perspiration and I have not put them out for my guys (a pair of Newfs), as they even shy away from the AKC mats in warm weather. Thus for a crate, I don't think I would confine them on the heat-trapping memory foam; the AKC mat is probably OK in an enclosed cage.

I have not opened it up but it feels like memory foam from the outside. I do know my dog really loves it.
