Initially, the bed was really hard because there is too much stuffing; however, I open the zipper and remove some of the stuffing and it fit better into the kennel and the dogs found him more comfortable.
I always put the interior padding into a plastic bag and seal it and then I put the exterior cover on dog beds. No idea why but my seven-year-old dog wet the bed the second night. I removed the cover and it washed up really well. Glad I had the plastic covering on the interior part!
Some people think I have a dog bed fetish with how often and how many dog beds I buy for my pups. One is a golden retriever the other is a basset hound/putbull mix.
Let's talk about the how the dogs prefer these: My dogs will always pick the shredded memory foam beds given the choice between even the Brindle single slab memory foam version much less any of the ones from Petsmart of Petco.
These are more capable of being molded into the perfect nest for my dogs. The pitbull mix in particular likes to fluff these up and mold them to his preference, which is something that can't be done with the single slab memory foam beds.
For me I love them not only because the dogs prefer them but also because of how darn easy they are to clean! Unlike many other beds I've had where you have to perform a lot of work to get all the cushions out in order to clean the cover. There are others which have little walls that have to be extracted and then replaced just right or the form of the bed doesn't get put back together easily.
And some beds are not very water resistant. When the dogs eat their treats on the bed the slobber could seem through and make the inner stuffing yucky.
With these beds the outer cover has put up a good fight against the worst my dogs could throw at it without letting anything seep through to the inner foam. To clean the cover it is one zipper, pull out the inner lining and the inner foam core comes out in a single piece that is a piece of cake to put back in once the cover is cleaned.
The complaint I have is they can get stinky more easily than some other beds I've had. It's a good thing they are easy to clean because I tend to clean them twice as often as other beds. Still, when I moved to a new house one of the first things I did was buy a bed for each room.
Sadly this did not survive our 10 month old lab for long. The bed is very nice quality and well made. The sueded fabric has a nice hand and the construction is well done. The interior pad is a removable pillow with 3 sections of shredded foam. This type of stuffing made the cover quite loose. We replaced the interior stuffing with a solid memory foam pad to discourage chewing through the loose fabric cover. Unfortunately there are multiple tags that were too alluring for our pup. Additionally the zipper is not substantial, it's a thin plastic hidden zipper. Unfortunately our pup busted through the zipper and destroyed the bed within a week. The search for a puppy proof bed continues.
Chew proof isn't ever a term that should be tossed around when it comes to dogs, but the bed seems stout and the seams are good. You can easily pull the bedding out and wash the cover, if need be, and the fit in our kennel was good.
