Rated 3 out of 5 by Hollye Cover, sadly has changed.
I have golden retrievers and have always bought these dog beds! Over the years for myself and for gifts for others, I have purchased at least 7 beds. I just got a new golden and of course bought a new cover with his name - the khaki cover with the taupe monogram. Always have to buy the khaki cover with Goldens! Anyway, The cover arrived I ripped open the package, excited to put the cover on the insert. WOW - was I SHOCKINGLY DISAPPOINTED! The monogram was not placed where it was shown on the picture online (which is where it always had been in years past - on the TOP of the bed). The monogram has changed to be on the front edge of the bed. Also, the quality has gone DOWN! The denim is not as dense and tight of a weave as it was previously. The LLBean tag which used to be on the front edge of the bed has been replaced with the monogram and the tag is now a smaller, less quality version on the side. LLBean always has high quality items and while this isn't horrible, it it is definitely not nearly what it used to be. It is obvious LLBean has changed manufacturers :-(

We were thrilled to see that the blue denim was back in stock. Then our order arrived and it was not denim but dark royal blue twill and it did not have the contrasting cording on the seams. It is acceptable but not as shown on the site and not what we had expected.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ckj1988 Chewed in days
I first purchased a large dog bed with fleece cover for my yellow lab's kennel. Within one week, he chewed it. After a few months a purchased a replacement cover. In one day, he had already chewed up the zipper. This item is not durable enough to withstand dog chewing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HuntFishRun Fleece Not Durable
I'm glad to have found Bean beds for my dog. We have two of them (the couch) and this one. Unfortunately, the fleece portion of this dog bed/cover just isn't that durable. It's unfortunate, as I don't think it would take much to improve the quality and durability. For the cost of replacement, I would expect it to last longer than a few years. Otherwise, the bed has held it's shape and continues to be supportive. Hoping Bean will improve the quality of the covers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BassetOwner Need a heavy duty zipper!
Love these dog beg covers. BUT, the fabric out lasts the zippers. I have now replaced, with much work, the zippers on two covers. A heavy duty zipper is a must. These covers will last for several years washing them every week, but the zippers give out before the cover.

Granted I just received this fleecy cover a few days ago, my 2 greyhounds fight over the right to sleep on this bed. In fact they are happily snoozing right now! Bought the covers to go over existing non-llbean beds and the fit fine!

Rated 1 out of 5 by kiltie lasted two hours!
The dog was able to totally destroy the zipper and the corners of the cover in just two hours! I was looking to replace it but see that I am not the only one that had this problem. So guess I will not waste more money.
