The foam pieces inside the bed seem to compact rather quickly. After only a couple months of owning the bed, there is now a flat spot in the middle where my dog lies most often that doesn't regain it's fluffiness. My dog seems to really like this bed though, even better than the Brindle beds that are made out of a single sheet of foam (as opposed to the shredded foam this one is made with).
The dog bed arrived fast. My dog loved it and was very comfortable, however, there was an poopy incident, and there was no way to clean the mess. Tried washing it but it kinda blew up in the washer, because it's in shredded pieces. So ended up throwing out an expensive dog bed. Got a crib mattress instead. It works! And its wipable.
I chose this bed because it seemed to be the cheapest, thickest option for a bed to go in my dog's kennel. While it was thick and comfy, I overestimated how durable it would be. The inner cushion is made of memory foam scraps held inside a very thin fabric. My dog chewed a small hole in it and I couldn't keep the scraps from flying everywhere. Would be great for a very gentle dog, but wouldn't recommend for a chewer!
I bought this bed in hopes that the cover being washable would alleviate the smell of dog for our fury companion.
1. The cover is removable and washable, which is great!!!
2. The foam is not.
What is the point in a removable and washable cover when the actual bedding isn’t washable? The Smell of dog would seep through the cover and penetrate the hundreds of foam pieces below. In the end, it didn’t matter that we gave our dog a bath and washed his Bed cover, because within a day or two the bedding would stink again. (He doesn’t mind his smell but we do!)
We also tried to problem solve and put his bed in his crate.
Our dog drools in his sleep.
Black mold everywhere!!!!!! It’s definitely not mold resistant and all the foam pieces ended up covered in black mold.
I thought about using the warranty and contacting customer service. However, it would be more trouble than what it’s worth to try and do this all over again.
I just tossed it in the trash.
And bought him cheap floor mats instead that can be tossed and replaced for the cost of washing and buying beds every time I turn around.
This is made of bits of cutup foam, and it is lumpy. My notoriously picky toy poodle wouldn’t even sit on it long enough to get used to it, much less lay on it. It failed the ultimate test, my cat, who lays on EVERYthing, even uncomfortable and weirdly shaped things. It sat in our office unused forever before my son had hip surgery and was in a wheelchair for a while. We finally used this as a cushion for him and he never complained about it so we kept using it until he didn’t need the wheelchair anymore. That’s the reason it gets 2 stars, otherwise I wouldn’t even want to give it 1 star, mostly because when I bought it, it didn’t say it had cut up pieces of foam in it. Maybe they’ve updated to include this vital piece of information, but if not now you know before spending the money on it. It is an attractive looking little piece of lumpy bed, I’ll give it that. Have never washed the cover yet so can’t comment on that. Probably should do that, haha. If it falls apart I’ll update review.
Not good if your dog is a chewer. I love this dog bed. My 65lb Chocolate lab puppy just got his crate expanded and this was his new bed that I expected to last years. It seems durable and the removable cover feature had us sold. He loves the bed and loved laying down in his crate in it. The weather turned here in Chicago around Christmas and he got a lot less outside time with highs of only -10 degrees... I think this led to nervous chewing behavior. He found a weak spot where the zipper seals the cover and chewed a hole in it... then he tore the stuffing out. He was vomiting several times last night after gagging and I now I have tossed the bed out after spending the morning cleaning memory foam stuffing particles up from in and out of his crate and everywhere... I hope he doesn't have blockage from eating the stuffing as he hasn't pooed yet today. I'm concerned but he threw yup so much last night he might be empty. I can't recommend this bed but I want to love it. If you have a powerful larger dog that's a chewer, Don't buy it..
I am not impressed by this dog bed or company. It looks like the dog bed is made pretty well. The cover looks well constructed as well as the inside cover that holds the memory foam pieces. I am disappointed by the amount of memory foam in the bed. I think it should be much more full. I had contacted the company about this and they have not responded. I had also purchased a different bed from them and had returned it because I was not happy with it. Another odd thing about the product is that the internal cover which holds the memory foam is broken up into 4 different sections. They are separated by an internal mesh barrier. They are not completely sewn together. My only thought is that they did this so that the memory foam wouldn't all get pushed to one side. This wouldn't be a problem if there was more memory foam in the bedding. My other bed was made like that as one piece and the memory foam never slid around all to one side, but there was much more memory foam in the bed.
First, I bought this bed for my dog's crate - he likes to go sleep in his crate at night, it's his safe space (we never lock the crate, he comes and goes as he pleases). The crate inside dimensions are 40x26 so this bed seemed like a perfect fit. Unfortunately, the advertised dimensions are incorrect - it's really 37x23. It would be 40x26 only if you took the inside fill out and stretched the fabric with its side walls flat. Otherwise, it's 3" too short and too narrow, and that makes for a big gap in the crate, and the dog keeps pushing it (inadvertently) to the side, leaving a gap on two sides of the crate. It may not sound like 3" is a lot, but 3" is 3" (lol?). It really doesn't fit the crate well, and the poor dog doesn't like how the bed keeps sliding all over the crate and as he leans against the crate walls, he ends up pushing the bed away and lies on the plastic crate bottom tray, instead of on a comfy bed.
Next issue - "memory foam" bed. It's not memory foam mattress like you'd expect. This thing is filled with scraps and remnants of what "may have" been memory foam mattress factory floor scraps. The little pieces are no larger than 1" balls. Over time I can see how it will thin out in spots while lesser used spots will remain fluffy. I have another similar looking bed with an actual memory foam pad inside - it's an actual one-piece of memory foam mattress fill, with a slipcover over top. This, by comparison, is like a cheap Chinese knock-off - looks good in the pictures but in reality it's much less appealing and rather cheap looking. Look at the pictures on Amazon - side walls nice and 90 degrees up from vertical, perfectly flat and all - while in reality it's more like a rounded donut wall, not straight up vertical, because it's not a "square" mattress inside, it's a ton of little 1" scraps, so the overall shape is never rectangular with straight up walls, it's looking like a deflated and soggy pad.
I'd almost forgive the fill, but the dimensions being 3" too narrow and too short are a deal breaker. I'll try to return it to Amazon for refund, if possible (just got delivery of it yesterday), if not, I'll donate it or maybe use as an outdoor bed for my dog for when he lounges in the sun.
Buy a 5 dollar blanket. Dog beds are 100% useless if your puppy isn't trained. I thought mine was trained but noooooooooope. Unless your dog has a god given talent for never going to the bathroom in his crate then you're SOL because this thing especially never dries and I've seen other mentions it. Not to mention. it weighs 20lb with water so it will break most washing machines that aren't high end and or anything other than a small stackable like my condo one.
Never worth the money, especially since all it takes is that one day for your dog to freak out and rip at the bed. I think the zipper design was smart because he didn't find that right away and rip it apart. Maybe your dog is the dog of all dogs but mine has one short coming, and that's going potty in the cage. Only way to crate train a dog is have them in there as much as possible and if you let your dog sleep with you THEY WILL NEVER LIKE THE CAGE. I made that mistake letting mine sleep with me for a time, now I have to tell him to shut up for 30mins before he goes to bed.
Good idea for a dog bed but lacking any real sense. Not easy to wash, not that durable. That said I guess it lasted a bit longer than the rest of my beds. Good design just poorly executed I guess. Dog beds are only for older smarter trained dogs. Puppies don't care. The material is like cloth too I came home today and a small rip I'm the corner. Thank God he didn't pursue it further lol!
