We bought this bed because my 6yr old labrador's old pillow bed needed to be replaced, and he has been having some joint issues lately. Thought this would be a great bed for him. The bed is large enough for him to sprawl out on it, and appears to be of good quality too. He is 100lbs, so we wanted something that would hold his weight and not sink to the floor when he sleeps on it. Well, he wouldn't even get on it until I went on it myself and called him to me. He eventually did lay on it by himself, but very seldom. He would rather lay down on the floor, than use this bed. I just gave it to my friend who has a hound dog to see if her dog would like it. She told me her hound dog wouldn't even get next to it. My friend even tried the same thing I did, by laying down on the bed herself and calling her dog over. My friend said her dog just circled the bed, still wouldn't get on it. I even washed the bed cover before I gave it to her so her dog wouldn't smell my dog on it. I eventually just broke down and bought another pillow bed for my labrador and he loves it! He uses the pillow bed all the time!
I bought this bed years ago for my 68lb amstaff. I chose the XL size because the 7” height was really important to me. I wanted a mattress with a removable and washable cover and mattress cover. There’s a headrest as well which is great for head support. I know it’s expensive but invest in a good mattress for your dog. This mattress is still going strong and has never sunk. At one point my other dog was sleeping on it as well for almost a year (almost around 100lbs between the two of them).
I ordered this bed and then started reading reviews and got worried. I was concerned about the reviews that mentioned the bed not inflating, the inner lining being too crinkly, or the foam being too firm. Well all three counts were false for me! The liner does crinkle and she seemed a bit nervous stepping on it at first, but it didn’t wake me in the night and she has no apprehension now. The bed sprung right up within the hour including the head rest side. If it doesn’t in 24 hours I’d go ahead and call customer service. Lastly, the foam is perfect! I got the XL and it’s ridiculously sized for my 65lb lab/pit mix but whatever she’s 15 years old and deserves all the leg room. It has a nice squish but is very supportive. I put a thick furry blanket on top and she loves it. This morning she was bouncing and prancing on our walk when we ran into another dog. It is a high step up though, so do keep that in mind if your dog doesn’t have slenderman legs like my lady.
I have been a lab owner for 25+yrs. We have been thru ALOT of beds. This is the most superior bed ever. Double liner for those barf times & occasional leakage. I have never repurchased any kind of bed except this one I just opened my 3rd bed in 10yrs. Lasts a long time
Added to our rotation of dog beds for our two fifteen yr old dogs. I like that this bed is firm and has a waterproof liner. I have not had to wash the cover yet. But the dogs seem to like it.
We loved these beds so much we bought a second set for the bedroom. We have a 180 pound Great Dane, and have spent so much money in the last on so called orthopedic beds that cannot support his weight and just go flat. These beds truly keep their thickness. Also a huge plus is the removable washable outer cover, and then the second waterproof cover underneath which is also removable. This greatly reduces the doggie odor as is help prevent the dirt and smell from getting into the foam mattress.
I bought this for my Bernese Mountain Dog Chewy bc my other dog chewed his bed up. I read the reviews and decided it would be a comfortable bed and Chewy could stretch out on it. I did remove the water proof cover for now bc I thought it might make it to warm when he laid on it. It's a very nice bed and my Chewy seems to enjoy it along with my other dog. The roll on the side hasn't expanded yet but Chewy seems quite content. I thought he'd put his back legs on the roll as he lays with his legs usually propped up. It's a great quality and not loaded with strings when it's unzipped. And I actually sat on it and seriously it's super comfortable. Chewy weighs 120lbs and is well supported. Very happy with the choice.
The bed is high quality and large. I was really excited about it but my dog was not. She won’t lay on it at all. She’s older, I’m thinking it’s just to hard for her.
After reading some reviews I was a bit torn although most were positive. I can say, some of the things that concerned me I did not end up experiencing. There was no odd smell, and the bed did fluff up fully. I let my dog sleep on it after a day and the pillow part was not quite filled out at that time, but close. I also didn't monitor how much longer it took, just noticed one day it was all done. My dog is not bothered by the sound of the waterproof inner cover, so I left it in place. There was a bit of discoloration on the inside cover/pillow but nothing off-putting. It does not affect it's use or function, and I assume it is caused by the brown cover/vacuum sealing it. Either way, no big deal. Not like I'm using it with the cover off. Overall this is a good quality bed, not too hard, not too soft, not heavy, easily movable. I bought the medium size for my 65# Staffy who likes to curl as well as stretch. This size works fine for both without taking up a lot of space. No regrets! Hope this helps if you're on the fence. I looked at a LOT of beds before this purchase.
Our dog, Sara is 60 lbs. Shes a medium sized dog but we have a larger crate for her (48x30) so we got an XL bed. It's perfect and she loves it. I really like the foam protection pad, I wish her older bed had one!
