    Snuggly Bed With A Few Caveats

    I read quite a number of reviews before buying these beds, so I pretty much knew what to expect. Our dogs love them, and they are quite snuggly, so I will be keeping both. I usually buy our dog beds at Home Goods, but it is quite difficult to find large donut beds that have a zip-off cover for washing.The Best Friends beds are definitely understuffed and the material is VERY thin, but the positive is that it is EXTREMELY soft. I have photos of the bolsters and middle pillow where one can see the light shining through and how much stuffing is missing. There are 3 inserts for the 36″ bed: two bolsters and one middle cushion. I ended-up buying cheap, $4 pillows from Target and using the stuffing from them to restuff the bed pillows and bolsters. A lot of work for a $65 bed, but they are much fluffier now!I bought the 36” size for both of our dogs: The “Shag Frost” for our 50 lb. English Bull Terrier and the “Lux Gray” for our 65 lb. Chesapeake Bay Retriever. To be specific, the “shag” is long, “eyelash” type fur, while the “lux” is short, “minky” type fur. We put the shag bed inside a 42” crate for our Bull Terrier, and it forms to the crate perfectly – it sits on top of a 3″ thick fur crate pad. Both dogs can even fit into one bed! I have not yet washed the shag cover, and I’m hoping it doesn’t get matted like so many reviews mentioned. I will update this post once I wash it.If you have a dog who likes to “nest” e.g., scratch up their beds to get them just right, be aware that they might put holes in the cover and inner cover. I have already mended a hole after just one week (the inner stuffing covers are paper-thin).I’m still on the lookout for higher quality beds that hit all the marks: well-stuffed, durable fabric, zip-off cover, and not too much $$$. These will be just fine for now – hopefully we will get at least a year’s use out of them!

    Best bed so far

    We have two mutts (57 and 35 lbs). We decided to try these out and got two medium (30×30) in Lux Fur Oyster. I selected the Lux Fur thinking it would be easier to clean than the option with longer strands. I have not had to clean them yet.Have had for over 1 month and out dogs love them for napping/sleeping. They can spread out or roll up in a ball. Our larger dog loves to hang her head off of all her beds now and again and I thought the roll around the bed might prevent that but it does not stop her. We could have gone smaller on the bed for our 37 lb. Dog but sometimes I think she likes the option to stretch out. Sometimes they use the roll around the bed like a pillow, other times they snuggle their heads up to it.Dog approved and recommended. The next test is how well the wash up. Follow the instructions on the tag, I hope proves effective.

    This bed completely changed the life of my rescue and me!Kirk had major separation anxiety issues after being rescued. When I would leave the house he would take clothes from the hamper, my pillows and blankets from my bed, cushions off the couch, etc and pile them all in the living room and sleep or chew on them.I ended up having to crate him when leaving the house.After getting this bed, I no longer have to crate him! He is so happy and so much more relaxed! He no longer steals my clothes, he doesn’t even sleep on the couch anymore. He absolutely adores this bed!We are so happy with this purchase. Would buy time and time again. Totally worth it!

    As cozy as it looks!!

    I recently ordered the donut calming bed size small in shag pink & my dog jumped in it before I could even finish fluffing it up!! The instructions were super clear on how to fluff. My 9-10 pound little dog curls up perfectly in the small size. I am trying to get away from her sleeping in bed with me since I am finding it hard to sleep lately with her. She is very cuddly and lays on me through the night. Although I do love her cuddles I toss & turn constantly waking her up by moving. I ordered a second bed in another color to keep in my bedroom so she will want to sleep on that instead!! Overall very worth it!

    Love this, puppy approved!

    My puppy loves her new bed!It came packaged in a box, all shrink wrapped, so it kept us shape well. My puppy hops right in, snuggles into it and stays there all night.I had ordered a similar one from another company, it was horrible! It was an XL size for our lab. It came in a shipping envelope type package and shrunk into a very small plastic bag, one of those you can buy at Walmart and use your vacuum to stick the air out, very unprofessional. The bed never came back to its correct shape. The company was horrible to deal with regarding a return.I was hesitant to try one for my smaller dog, but I’m glad I did. This company sent a nice, good quality, bed, and it came within a week. It’s easy to unzip and take it the “pillows” to make washing easier.I’d order another one if needed.

    Cats and dog keep fighting over it

    We’ve had this bed for many years now. Originally I bought it for the cats to replace a similar 15 year old bed that had reached the end of its usefulness.My skinny, lanky, 40 lb standard Poodle recently stole this bed from the cats after they knocked it off a sofa and onto the floor. She can fit though she does curl into a tight ball. I’m finally buying a second one a bit bigger just for her.It washes well on a cold cycle. I always line dry anything plush so this hasn’t been put through the dryer. It’s survived several rounds of dry cat vomit, which is more than most beds we’ve had before managed.

    Snug As A Pug In A (Shag) Rug!

    I ordered this little “donut” bed for my elderly pug. I got it in size Small (she’s 22lbs) in Luxe Oyster. Her regular bed was really too big so I was looking for something more appropriate size-wise and more “cozy. She took right to it and seems to like the safe little space and will rest her chin on the edge. I can’t speak to how easy it will be to clean nor how durable it is (although she is not hard on beds and isn’t a chewer). I can say it is soft like a shaggy stuffed animal. The bed is pretty close to her fur in color so sometimes she “disappears “ in it! I would recommend this bed for dogs that need a secure, comforting little space.

    So cute and so perfect

    It is a challenge to get my Yorkie to not sleep with me (my fault, lol). She seems to be picky about her beds – now has three to choose from, ugghhh. I put one of my shirts in this bed to see if she would take to it and she did. Not sure if it is the softness or my shirt but she loves this bed. It is really soft, fluffy and has enough cushion and she can cuddle up in it. The size is perfect (she weighs 6-8lbs). I also followed the directions and put it in the dryer for 5 minutes after taking it out of the package and it became even more fluffy.

    Nothing better.

    Seriously I have a dog who EATS beds. He comfort chews them and I’ve had others before that are washable and either get gross and matted down or they shred. This will be my fourth Best Friends by Sherri bed. Not because I’m replacing them but because he needs them in every room. I bought two different sizes. A small for solo pup and a medium for sharability.The material cleans like a breeze. I’ve had the hairy ones before too and could never get the smell of puke out of it after my dog got sick no matter how often I washed and they were so easy to get matted. But this other material is a masterpiece. Pop it in the wash and air dry every few weeks and it’s like new.

    This is why you read reviews.

    Best Friends by Sheri The Original Calming Donut Cat & Dog Bed in Shag Fur Taupe, Large 36×36, (Bed Only),: I ordered this bed for our GSD who needed a new bed. She’s 76 lbs. so I ordered the Large 36×36. Many other reviews stated they liked this bed for reasons I did not find that helpful. Other reviews stated they liked the color they ordered, how fluffy it was, whether the bottom of it was thick enough, etc. My plan was to place this over my dog’s old, flat, existing bed, on the tile flooring we have. So I am writing this review to Get To The Point to help you decide if this is the right bed for your own pet. Is it easy to clean? Well, since it just arrived today, I can’t truthfully answer that, however, since it has a zippered, detachable cover, I can’t see why it won’t be easy to clean. Simply take it off & wash it in the machine. I CAN say the softness is, by far, more than I imagined. Durability, again, will take some time to determine, but after examining it, I can say all seams are secure & fabric/fur is of excellent quality. How about size for a full-grown German Shepherd? She fits perfectly with room to spare & as soon as I placed it where she sleeps, she went right to it and laid right in it. I say “IN it” because this “donut shape” has high edges around it & she loved placing her face/head right on the raised side. Her back bunts up to the other side circle of the bed, giving her nice cushioning. I placed my order on Jan. 4 & it arrived Jan. 7. The original price was $109.96. I got it on sale for $65.99. (With tax: $71.27). The bed looks just like the picture. (The picture with the big brown dog laying in the bed). If you need a new dog bed for a large breed dog, I highly recommend purchasing this one.Hope this review helps those of you reading review after review, searching for facts you REALLY want to know about this product.

    He LOVES it❤️

    I got the medium size because you can take the cover off and wash it. Plus it came with it fluffy blanket that as you can see, he likes to use both at the same time. Just make sure that when you wash it, dry it on low heat. And it will stay looking like you see in the picture because I have washed it. He will put the side of his head against the bed and moves his head up and down until his nose is buried in the fluff. This is the best bed ever I might have to get another one for the bedroom. Great product absolutely the best.

    “Goose” seems to enjoy

    Ordered shag Frost color in 36×36 size for my 55lb Golden Retriever and he’s taken a liking to it. I was a bit disappointed with the amount of fill as it wasn’t as plump with plush as I was hoping, but the price was reasonable and it doesn’t seem to bother him♡ It’s just that onebofbthe main reasons I purchased was to support his neck while he sleeps and if filled more, it would be more supportive. I’ll be taking this with him when he stays overnight at PetSuites to give him comfort and will soon find out how well it launders. Overall, I’m happy with my purchase.

    Thickest donut bed yet!

    I have a 24 pound nervous Nellie! When she starts having a neurotic moment, she will lick the baseboards, carpet, I need a ton of grass. Last night was one of those nights, and we had just received our bed earlier in the day. One of the reviews that I read was from a woman who had purchased numerous beds from this company and use those for foster care of rescue dogs. Since dogs will mark their territory, she recommended putting the inserts in garbage bags. This also helps keep the pillow inserts from absorbing pet dander and stinking, which all dog lovers know about stinky dog beds! Well, when my girl finally decided to chill out in her bed, she was so relaxed that she snores even louder than our Great Pyrenees! I put the bed in place if her other one in my room for the night and covered her up with the matching blanket. I’m the morning, she continued to return to the bedroom to crawl in her bed. I brought it out next to the Christmas tree, and that is where she is still lying and it has been three hours! She loves it! The sides of the bolsters are very high. One side was not as fluffy and tall as the other. I tossed it in the dryer to see if it would fluff to the height of the opposite side but it did not. She doesn’t seem to mind, but I do. Also, the bottom insert that they lien is not very full. I know from past experience that I can compensate for the lack of filling but for this price, I was a little disappointed with that fact. I be will update my review if it slides not hold up as the company advertises. Overall, I would recommend the bed!

    Love after a few sniffs!!!

    Just received our Bella’s bed today. Once I opened the bag and put it in her corner, after sniffing it a few times, she laid in it and didn’t want to get out. Then I read the instructions about putting it in the dryer for a few minutes which really fluffed it up. Now I don’t think it’s going to be easy getting Bella out of… I’m so glad I got this for our Bella. Very soft, very fluffy even the middle section. Of course haven’t tried washing it yet but it seems well made. Totally happy with this purchase… You can’t go wrong getting this bed…

    Best dog bed ever!!!

    My 1 year old husky mix LOVES this bed!!! She likes to chew up beds and blankets so I really thought this wouldn’t last long. Well I was completely wrong. Since we have had it she has never tried to chew it and lays in it every time she wants to sleep. I have washed it and with the zippers to remove the pillows it was super easy. After being washed it looked just like the day I got it. It’s so comfy my kids now want one as well. 😆 I also love that the color matches our living room perfectly. I HIGHLY recommend this dog bed!

    My dog is in love with it!

    I can’t comment on anything but the softness since we have only had this bed a few hours but my dachshund (I got the 23 inch one – he is about 18 lbs) jumped in it and has only left it to eat. In fact, he usually sleeps in another bed on my bed but I had to remove that one and actually lift him-in his new bed-up onto my bed because I couldn’t get him to leave it. He has 6 other beds but I have a feeling I’m going to have to replace some of them with more of these. Maybe I shouldn’t have gotten a brown one. Being a chocolate dachshund, he sort of disappears into it. I hesitated before purchase because I thought it just couldn’t be that good but happily, I was wrong.

    THREE dogs, ALL Addicted to these beds!!

    You read the reviews and you think to yourself, “Oh sure, made their dogs happy, but what about my picky little one?” Then you take the gamble and OMG your dogs think they’re in heaven. If you ask me, they’re a little too big for the Chihuahuas, and just right for the full size Dachshund… but they don’t care about MY opinion, they’re in LOVE with these beds. I have a brown one and three dark blue ones, I really prefer the dark blue. The brown one was for the cat’s bed in the laundry room, but although it’s warm, safe, the place where his food and water are, he didn’t care for the bed at all. Then I put it in the dog house ( ) which it fits in PERFECTLY… and voila, Eldon the big orange cat loves his bed as much as the dogs do. So for him his rating depends a lot on location. (I’ll bet it is because the washer sometimes gets out of balance and is noisy) but whatever… the beds are perfect. Like everyone else, I’m just waiting for the “BEST FRIENDS by Sheri for human adults and children. Why? Because I envy my dogs!!

    Kitty Cat Approved!

    I got this bed for my girls and they love it. I keep it at my feet under our desk and I’m most likely getting them a second one for my husbands side of the desk. My cats are 9 lbs (the one in the picture) and 12 lbs. The small bed is the perfect size for them to lay in alone or together when they feel like cuddling! 10 out of 10 recommend for your pet!

  19. CLoCLo

    My Schnauzer loves it!

    It is super soft, easy to wash, and dry. Important to dry it in the dryer as instructed for it to fluff up. She has used it to sleep every night since we got it. She loves it. She doesn’t have to search for a comfy spot she enters and just snuggles in there. However it is on my bed so can’t say if it’s just a comfy on the floor. Ordered a small in taupe.

    Cat Really Loves this Bed. Excellent Pet Bed!

    At first, Tuffy considered this bed a threat like an alien creature of some sort. I put one of her blankets on top of it for a few day to entice her to sleep in it. She began sleeping there. After a few more days, I removed the blanket. She has been using the bed sans blanket ever since. She clearly loves sleeping in it. See photo!

    Great fluffy bed for young dogs or large breeds

    Arrived quickly with no weird smell and clear instructions on how to fluff it up. I ordered this for my 14 year old maltipoo and it is definitely bigger than I anticipated. This is the medium 30×30, she’s 13 lbs and you can see how much extra room there is. Her legs are so tiny and since she can’t jump onto the couch or bed anymore I thought this would be a comfy alternative, but she kinda struggles getting into it. I’m thinking about ordering a sofa style bed from the same company in a size smaller. Keeping this one because my 4 year old westie jumped right into it.

  22. BuyerBuyer

    Extremely soft and cuddly!

    My German Shepherd, Tegan, has multiple beds, i.e., Big Barker, all around the house. He loves to cuddle up on the pillows of those beds, so I thought I would try a bed with the “pillow” surrounding him. I took this picture as soon as I put the bed on the floor. He laid down, put his head on the pillow, and lights out! My dog is 120 pounds, and I was concerned that this bed would not be big enough regardless of the provided weight max listed for each size of every bed. My dog likes to stretch and lay across the beds, too. The XL bed (45″ x 45″) is plenty big for him and gives him enough space to stretch out if he so desires. It is day one, so we will see about the durability and washability. So far, so good!

  23. omeeomaiomeeomai

    Super Soft and Cuddly!!

    Glad I ordered these beds! I bought 3 of them. Size 30” x 30”, our dogs are medium sized, weighing about 50-60 pounds each. The fit is perfect bc once they curl up inside, the bed wraps around them.Soon as we took them out of the packages, all three dogs got inside immediately and took naps.The blankets that comes with the beds are great add ons. All of dogs like to dig or make a nest in their beds before they settle so it’s great not having to pay additional for the blankets.

    Comfy and soft (shag)

    I have a VERY anxious dog and I was hoping this bed would be a comfort to her. She is comfortable but still anxious. What I didn’t expect is that our older 14 year old dog would take such a liking to this bed. She didn’t use her other bed much but I find her in this soft comfy bed a lot. She even goes from her bed to her sister’s bed often. Both dogs like the bed a lot. I do suggest taking the time to fluff it up and pull the cotton apart to make it not lumpy. It makes a big difference. That’s why some reviews show less fluffy beds I think. DON’T however decide to give your dog a treat in the bed. It will get lost or they will eat the fur trying to get the treat out. My one dog took a small piece of cheese in hers and it was not easy to get out of the fur. This is a very nice bed. I do agree that I would like to see more fluff on the bottom of the bed for padding. I bought the small sizes for my 17.5LB and 11.5 LB dogs. They have lots of room when curled up. Less when stretched out but they make it work just fine with their head over the edge.

    Ignored, now Loves

    I got this bed for my cat more than 2 months ago. After a couple of tries, he has totally ignored it. A few days ago I threw a quilted bag in it, and the cat immediately went and climbed on. After removing the bag, I put a folded towel in the center. Now the crazy cat is in the bed all the time! Who knew that is all it would take? So happy he finally likes it!

    Plush, soft and probably more calming than other beds

    Got the smallest size for my 5 lb toy poodle. Was concerned it was too big when I opened it but it seems to be the perfect size for her to sprawl out in. She loves it, the donut shape gives her a place to prop her head and feel contained, she also likes to bury her nose in the creases. The smallest size doesn’t have a removable cover so you have to wash the whole bed. A removable cover would be nice to save space in the wash. I haven’t washed it yet, though. My tiny dog has separation anxiety and this bed does seem to have a calming effect on her, she’s very content in the bed.

    New Favorite

    Bought this for my 25lb Boston after my daughter had bought one for her cats. He loved the cats Small bed so much the cats gave it to him but he looked so silly curled up in that tiny bed so I bought him the Medium and the matching blanket and it’s just right. He is sleeping sound and definitely LOVES this bed more then any other bed I have bought for him. As soon as it came I washed it and dried it and put it out. Washed and dried perfectly. Rudy Blu highly recommends this bed!

    Luxury pet bed

    We’ve gone thru countless dog beds over the years and judging by how often our dog lays in bed now, I’d say this beats them all. She loves to burrow and sleep under a cover, and this bed and blanket allow her to do that. It isn’t heavily cushioned on the bottom but it is on the sides and it re-fluffs easily. The zipper could allow for stuffing with additional filler but we haven’t needed to do that.

  29. ToriTori

    So far so good!! The dogs love it!

    After my dog took a liking to my friends’ dog’s bed like this I HAD to get one for her. I looked around for the best value, aka good price with good reviews and quick delivery. So far this bed does not disappoint!!I ordered the purple in size small (23in) for my 13 lb chihuahua mix. She fits perfectly with room to spare! I took the bed with us to visit my mom and her dogs also love the bed (6 year old 16 lb shih tzu/chin mix and 10 week old 3lb shih tzu/cavapoo).This bed is perfect for road trips, hard wood floors, or even to give your pup a comfy spot on the couch!! Definitely would recommend.

    Helping my dog to relax more

    Made in the USA….. it is so cuddly….My little rescued Chihuahua has anxiety issues. She first thought it was a giant squeaky chewy toy and I had to teach her not to bite it . Now, she cuddles in it and basically sleeps during the night.As far as I can see it works for 😃 for both of us.Highly recommend this bed. Thank you.

    My Guy Loves It! wish it was more cushioned though.

    My guy enjoys sleeping on the couch but it isn’t always an option. He’s a picky fella and didn’t like the literal dog couch we purchased for him. We got this and he prefers this over the couch at times (even when the couch has room). Personally, I wish the bottom of the bed had more cushion for him. I feel like that’s a bit flatter than I would like for him, but he doesn’t seem to mind. I got one a bit bigger than he needs, and I wish I would have gotten a size smaller so he can curl up in it better (again he doesn’t seem to mind). Given his preference though, I would buy again

    Sleepy time.

    My dogs love this bed. I have bought so many beds that only last a few days. This is the only one that is not torn apart! They actually sleep while I work.

    My dog loves this bed.

    This bed actually does calm my dog. He curls up in it for a nap every day and I will purchase this item again and recommend this calming bed to my friends.

    My pup loves it!

    I had purchased a different brand of “donut dog bed” and it worked fine until I found THIS one! The Best Friends by Sheri The Original Calming Donut Dog Bed is thicker, fluffier, softer – I can keep going! The best part is that my dog loves it. I can tell she feels cozy in it. I love that the cover is removeable and washable. Wish I had purchased this one first.

  35. Genevieve


    My dog loves these type of donut beds, but every previous brand I’ve bought has been a nightmare to clean because I have a top-loading washer with a central post. Shoving a whole “washable” dog bed in there was never going to work. This one lets you completely separate the stuffing from the cover, and then you can just throw the cover in the washer. Amazing! Well worth the price, in my opinion.

    Dog beds

    My cat and dog love their new beds, soft and fluffy and worth the price. Would buy again and suggest others to purchase if in need of a pet bed.

    Dog seems to love it

    Our dog seems to love this bed. We like that it’s washable as we had to toss our our last one when she got fleas and we couldn’t wash it.


    I guess it really did “help your dog feel more secure” …

    Jan 2023 – At first I thought, “Really? Help your dog feel more secure”?Well, the “thousand words” are in the attached photo.No, it is not a replacement for a tranquilizer. But it did help our baby feel more secure and calmer during the early evening hours.New Years here in Hawaii was super loud! Especially with those illegal fireworks. I mean, they sound like motor rounds going off or small bombs. Yikes.When things got really loud, it was time for the meds.Now that the craziness is over, she is still really liking her cuddly bed.It’s a keeper. 🙂

    My ChiWeenie Pup looooves it!

    Love this bed because my Furbaby does too! She could hardly wait for it to be fluffed and put down for her. She deserves the best because who knows what she has been thru (Rescued) before we found her at a Shelter. She has two now. Yes, one with us in living room and one in our bedroom.

    He loves it!

    Our boy usually prefers sleeping on flat surfaces, but it turns out that he loves this bed! We got a size large and our pup is 60 lb. Note that the pillow stuffing is regular stuffing (rather than something like memory foam or feather). There’s a zipper for the donut and another zipper for the inner circle. You can remove both pillows to throw the cover in the wash.

    My dog and my cat fight over this bed

    My cat hates my dog, but she refuses to give up my dog’s bed. When my dog lays in this bed, she melts into it. She’d rather sleep in this bed than sleep on my bed with me. The fact that it can be washed is what sold me, but it is an overall win.

    Wonderful bed

    My kitty LOVES this bed. We couldn’t even get it into the dryer to fluff it before she demanded to sleep in it. Absolutely great, and the fact that the whole thing is washable makes it perfect!

    My dog loves this bed!

    Wanted to see if this would work for my pup. I have to say my dog does not like to be put in place or lay on his own bed in the living room. This came last night and we opened it up. My dog thinks all packages that come in the house are his. After a few minutes of him scooching it around, rubbing his paws and face on it he settled in. At first I thought it was too small but he just likes to stretch out. He actually stayed on it and seemed to doze off! I placed him a few times last night and he didn’t freak out and cry. This morning while i was making his breakfast he wasn’t in the kitchen as is normally the case. I turned around and he was waiting patiently in his new bed!! His kittens try to attack it because it is floofy. Super happy with the purchase and so is my Charlie.

    Best dog beds!!

    This is my third (or fourth, I can’t remember) of these cuddle beds. I have two dogs, so I always buy two at a time. I prefer the lux as opposed to the shag because my Bedlingtons roll around in the dried grass, leaves, etc. which cling to their fur as if it were velcro. They then transfer the numerous tiny pieces of grass and leaves to the house, their beds and everywhere in between. The debris is easy to shake out of the beds and wash out nicely. My dogs don’t shed, so I don’t know how easy it would be to get dog hair out of the beds. I bet you could easily vacuum it out though.

    We haven’t been able to find a bed that my dog will actually use. Since day one, he loves this bed! It is cute and it calms him down. He sleeps on it for hours!!! I definitely recommend. We have a 3 yr old chocolate lab that is very high energy and this bed has done the trick! It also goes with our house decor so it’s a 10/10 ☺️

    So comfortable!

    I ordered two 30-inch beds. I received them today. The dogs jumped in immediately. The beds are soft and fluffy. My dogs are 17 lbs and 7 pounds. This bed allows them to stretch out. If you have a small dog and want snuggly, buy the 23 inch bed. I highly recommend!

    Soft, squishy, comfy

    Love the beds, my dogs & cats love the beds. Have a question though? One came in a vacuumed package, other one was in a large box, although same size, one seems larger???

    My 90 pound dog loves it!

    I’ll buy another when it needs replaced, because my 90 pound dog loves this bed. Taking it apart to wash was easy, and it washed up like new. The edge support seems to give comfort to my dog, and for a dog bed, it looks nice. Worth the $.

    Pup LOVES this bed!

    I’ve had other beds similar to this one, but after my dog seemed to fall in love with one of these while on vacation with my sisters who had one, I decided to buy one. My dog went crazy for it! Every night she jumps in, does some nesting in it and falls right asleep. The picture speaks for itself. It’s very soft, havent washed it yet as only got it a few days ago. But am very impressed so far.

    Best bed for snugs

    Milton LOVES this bed. He gets in, purrs, makes biscuits, and snoozles. I was skeptical but i am bamboozled no more. Get this squish ball of comfort for your cat today.

    My dog loves it after an adjustment

    Purchased this bed for my 15 yr old Jack Russell who’s only 11lbs. She needed a new bed & being older & having some anxiety, I wanted to purchased something that would prove to be comfortable for her. I noticed she kept getting out of the bed & wandering when she would typically be sleeping. Then I noticed her shivering while laying in it. It was not cold outside nor was it cold/cool where her bed is. I felt in the bed & the bottom was very cold to touch. I then realized that because we have tile floors the coolness of the floor was making her bed too cold which was making her cold & uncomfortable. I had to place a rug under her bed. Problem solved! Since then she sleeps so comfy & peaceful.

    36×36 oyster Large, BIG. My dogs love it!

    Ordered size L. (see above), and it’s big! My dogs love it! It’s their first choice when picking a bed. It’s padded nicely as well.Will not be washing it for a few weeks most likely, but will give update if anything changes.It’s a pretty bed. At least 8-10 inches tall all the way around, plus the Large dimension across.I’d like to take away a STAR because of the price. But I agreed to the price when I ordered it.

    My anxious dog loves it!

    Both my dogs love this bed. My anxious dog immediately used it and has been in it every single day! My arthritic & grouchy dog wouldn’t get in it until I replaced the bottom cushion with a memory arthritic/cooling gel pad. Now he cuddles up into the sides!

    Doggie’s love it

    My Doberman went to the doggie sitters for a visit. He took over on her dogs bed which happened to be this one. She sent me pictures of my dog lounging and looking so happy. I had to buy one for my buddy. So glad I did. He is a happy camper. I highly recommend

    My dog loves this bed

    When I first got this bed it was air tight and so, flattened. Even after taking off the cover it was flat. In reading the instructions it states place in dryer for 5 minutes before using. Wow, what a difference. I barely got it on the floor and my Chi (small bed) hopped right in as rested her on the rim. Perfect! Instructions say it’s machine washable. It is very soft though I would like a little more padding on the bottom. I just put the bed on a rug so we are good to go.

    Who’s happier? Me or my Boxer?

    I have several dog beds in my 3 dog household, but my Boxer (almost 1 year old, 58 pound female) will be going to a kennel in a couple days for two long weeks and I wanted to find the most comfortable bed for her I could. This size large bed arrived today and she immediately burrowed into it, rubbing her mug in the folds, squishing around, then falling asleep. I feel so much better knowing that she’ll be comfy while I’m gone. This bed is one of the most expensive models but the quality seems to be very good and it’s super soft and dogs feel that and deserve it. The size large is perfect for my 58 pound Boxer with room for growth.

    Cat approved!

    I purchased this for my 12.5 lb. elderly cat. She immediately began using it and absolutely loves it! It is her go-to place for resting. I purchase the small and found it to be bit larger than I expected. Nonetheless, my cat doesn’t seem to mind. She loves snuggling down in it.As for other reviews noting that the center does not offer much support / padding, I personally think it’s fine. I have it either on my bed or the couch, which is supportive in itself. And from my experience with cats, some (like mine) don’t like a lot of fluff / padding in the center.

    Dog actually uses it!

    I have bought my dog a few dog beds in the past, but she never used them because she preferred the couch, so I got rid of the beds. She’s 10 years old now and still gets on the couch every day, but she’s starting to show signs of it getting harder to jump up so high. I decided to try this bed (it was her Christmas present) because it looked durable, was extra fluffy looking, and so she wouldn’t have to lay on the hard floor (we have a slab foundation). I’m very happy to say that she absolutely loves it! She got in it and fell right to sleep! I have found her in it everyday since Christmas. Money well spent!!For reference she is 1/2 cairn terrier and 1/2 chug, weighs about 27lbs (she’s a little thick) and I purchased the medium sized bed.

    Medium dog bed

    I was skeptical at first but i am so glad i went with this. it can be a little pricey but has held up really well for my girl. She’s 70 pounds but curls up when she sleeps so i went with the medium size and it was bigger than expected, so soft, and so easy to take the cover off to wash. This is the dog bed i imagined for her and it definitely met all my expectations! 10/10 recommend!

    Nice but doesn’t look like picture

    Sammy the dog thought the bed was a big stuffed toy at first. She didn’t understand how to lay on it. She tried chewing on it a couple of times, and we’re hoping she gets over that. She finally relaxed and curled up in it. Still early times, but she seems to be enjoying the bed.
