Rated 5 out of 5 by davishome Cody's bed
Really searched around to find a bed for my 90 lb Golden. I bought the Therapeutic bed w/denim cover because he always scratches a nest and wanted the cover to not get torn up. When it arrived he was afraid of it and wouldn't get near it. I kept putting it around him, here and there, where he relaxes and sleeps. But he would have none of it. I called LLBbean customer service. The bed had been around my house for over a month but would they consider a return?? "OF COURSE!" was the answer to my amazement! But then Cody had a change of heart and gave the bed a test run - and that began several years of daily use! He scratches his nest then either naps or sleeps during the night. It took a month for this shy guy to give it a shot, but this bed is wonderful! And LLBean is the best! Now my dog has hip dysplasia and arthritis, but his therapeutic bed gives him comfort and makes me happy, too! It still looks new! The egg crate comfort top is still firm & supportive after these years of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mozart1 Fantastic Bed!
We adopted a German Shepherd mix from the humane society six months ago. I've used several different beds from the local pet stores, but none of them held up very well. This bed from LL Bean is absolutely the best! Our little baby is living the high life now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TulipsandCrocus Good for Heavy Dogs
I hesitated to buy the large size LL Bean Therapeutic Dog Bed because the description said it was for dogs 40 - 70 pounds and my dog weighed in at 104 pounds after her diet. This dog bed supports a heavy dog beautifully. It supports the dog's weight, with the cat's weight, and the weight of an elementary age child who flops next to the dog. Another reason I hesitated to buy it was the cost. Because of my dog's weight, and her trimmed but big claws, all of her previous dog beds were in shreds within a year, The LL Bean bed, has held up. I bought the one with the denim cover, it's been washed more than once and there are no tears. It's been a great dog bed for my dog.

by LukeLovesIt Best dog bed!
My golden retriever Luke weighs 62 pounds and he sleeps on the medium sized bed. He loves it! Our cat Frodo loves it too. I really need to order a second one for the bedroom.
The best dog bed out there for this price range. Others are junk. Love this!

by GreenwayBiker Nap time for Porter
Our beloved senior dog, Porter, loves his LL Bean bed! He is on it every chance he gets to take a nap. It must be very comfortable and supportive. We purchased a large after reading the reviews. He is 90 lbs of German Shepherd/Hound Dog mix. Its a perfect fit! The cover is durable and we are sure he will enjoy it for years to come!

We have 2 standard poodles whom we purchased these beds for. The proof is in the pudding. I personally wish the beds were offered in more colors, but the poodles don't care because they sleep, and hang out on their beds every day. When our daughter's dog visits, she occupies one. She likes it so much I am ordering one for her for Christmas. The covers come off so they can be washed. They have held up for almost 7 years now and are still in great shape.

by animalfriend Therapeutic Dog Bed XL
We have an adult Bullmastiff with joint issues. After much research on memory foam, size requirements, etc. we purchased the LL Bean Therapeutic Dog Bed XL with memory foam. The mattress comes rolled up and goes into shape quickly - I had no problem putting the cover on (I have arthritis) and the zipper is covered to discourage chewing or snagging. Our dog immediately tried it out and went to sleep! I like the size because she can stretch out and my grandson can even join her. I REALLY LIKE the memory foam - there is NO smell and the mattress fits the cover well...even with it's XL size it fits into our den well and moves easily. The best part is our dog is comfortable. THANK YOU. I would easily give this bed 5 stars...our dog would give it 10 stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SherwoodParkShopper Excellent large/giant dog breeds bed
I bought an XL therapeutic retangular bed for my 175 lb English mastiff, and a L one for my 90 lb Lab. Both love their beds! I bought a waterproof mattress cover to cover the foam before putting on the canvas cover. My lab is 13 yrs old and has arthritis. My 3 yr old mastiff used to get on our bed just to be able to sprawl out. Now that she can sprawl out on this XL bed, she doesn't get on the bed anymore. This is a durable, thick, well built bed, there is nothing else out there in the pet stores that is comparable, at any price. Even the cats like them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nolabear Good bed
Once the bed is finally put together, it is awesome! I bought the XL for my 80 lb Chesapeake Bay Retriever. The XL is way too big for her, however it allows for both of us to snuggle up and take naps together! If I was purchasing this again I would probably go with a medium or large. She has the medium bolster bed and that fits her perfectly.
Why only 3 stars? It is next to impossible to put this bed together. The foam insert does not easily slide into the perfect fitting cover so my mom made a cover to go around the foam to help it go in easier and now it takes me about 1-2 minutes to put the bed back in the cover rather than 15-20 minutes and a lot of cursing! LL Bean - either have a zipper open on 3 sides or make a cover to go around the foam part of the bed. My previous Chessie had the large bed and that used to have a cover to protect the foam and it worked much nicer than the new version!

Rated 1 out of 5 by sunnya Not a memory foam insert
I received this in the mail and it is just a 3 inch foam pad with a memory foam eggshell cover. It is not a memory foam insert as I thought it would be. I paid $100 for something worth far less. I am very disappointed in this product and will return it. LL Bean said I can return it without charge due to it not being what was advertised.
