Rated 2 out of 5 by gijohnnysgal Very pleased at first, not so much now...
We bought this for our 80-lb yellow lab in late 2011. Initially, it was a great bed! By the end of 2012, the bed was flat...it's like there is a large indentation where his body lies. Now, the cover starting to look like it's "running" or the top layer of fabric is pulling. Granted, it's lasted longer than other beds we've purchased, but it cost 3-4x the price paid.

Rated 2 out of 5 by millielovestoparty Both covers ripped within a week
I ordered two of these beds in the large size for our two black labs. Our dogs like to move and carry their beds around, and unfortunately, the first cover ripped almost in half on the very first day, and the second one followed behind within the first week. Although our dogs are also to blame, most of the damage consists of long tears where the covers ripped apart at seams and otherwise, which leads me to conclude that the materials and construction of these beds just isn't as sturdy as I might have hoped for from LL Bean and for the price. I did not contact LL Bean for a refund or attempt to return the beds because I feel it was at least in part the dogs' fault. I came back to the website to look for a sturdier replacement cover option, and I am disappointed that there doesn't appear to be one.
If your dogs are even moderate chewers or have a tendency to pick up their beds, I wouldn't recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by alleyN Great Bed - Holds up BEAUTIFULLY over time!
I purchased this bed many (5+) years ago. This bed has outlasted ALL of the cheaper beds that I've purchased. The mattress holds its shape, and the cover remains as nice as it was when I purchased it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomofDaisy Great durable bed!
I rarely write reviews, but as I am getting ready to order this bed for my brother's dog and sit looking at my dog's bed, I felt compelled to write that we have had our bed LLBean denim dog bed for 14 years. The cover has withstood years of abuse and washings and is still going strong. Even the filling still has some life. A little fluff and our hound dog cuddles right in. The stitching from our first dog is still in place, so I just turn it over! The dog can't read!

by CDCGirl Excellent Dog Bed
I've had 2 of these for my dogs for several years, and they hold up great. Recently my dog vomited on the bed and it went all the way through to the insert, and the insert smelled really bad. I knew I could wash the cover but the tag on the insert said "do not machine wash." I figured, well, what the heck, I may as well try. If it falls apart I'll just buy another one. Well, I put it in my washing machine with some Tide and some OxyClean, let it soak for a while and then ran it through a normal cycle, normal spin. It came out just fine!! Intact, not a problem, clean and smelling nice. For good measure, I decided to go ahead and wash the insert for the other dog bed, and it also came out great. You might want to take a look at this, since customers might be more interested if they know it's ok to wash the insert. And, the covers look great after numerous washings!

Rated 2 out of 5 by dogfamily not as comfy as they say
Based on these wonderful reviews we bought the large bed for our ancient shepherd mix. Every time he went to lie down we could hear the old guy's bones hit the floor. We folded up an old quilt and stuck it in with the cushion to make it comfortable for him. The cover is nice and durable, but the cushion did not meet our expectations... too bad because we liked the fact that it was made in the U.S.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Weims2 Premium dog bed set
I purchased two large Premium dog beds and my two dogs will not sleep on them. The covers are fine but the filling is so flat it is like sleeping on the floor. They are so bad I removed the filling out of one and it fit perfect on top of the other bed and the cover fit fine with two fillings in one bed. The pictures in the catalog looked a lot better then they really are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mescaleroapache Love it
I purchased this in extra large for my 72lb. American Standard German Shepherd five years ago. Aside from the zipper pull weakening and breaking off after several wash/dry cycles this bed is amazing. The exterior has held up although the interior has flattened somewhat, which is to be expected. I don't understand how some reviewers think this bed, or anything for that matter, is indestructible to dogs that chew? This mindset is beyond me. Highly recommended, even planning on purchasing a large one shortly and possibly a new insert for the extra large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HoustonGal2013 Best Pet Bed Ever!
We are so happy with our dog bed. I call it a pet bed because our two cats and dog all use and enjoy it. It holds up so much better than anything else we have owned. I like the washable cover and it looks great and fits the cushion even after washing. We have two of the small size for different rooms of our house. All our pets love them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NannyJJ Premium Denim Dog Bed
I purchased this bed for my boxer dog Daisy and she absolutely loves it. She sleeps so soundly on this bed that sometimes I startle her when I go near her when she is sleeping. I purchased a large one, but I really think she would have been just as comfortable on a medium one.
