Rated 5 out of 5 by Easton8Newt Enjoy's Bed Too Much.
Our Golden Retriever, Gracie, who is almost a year old really enjoys her bed. Maybe a little too much! LLBean needs to come up with a better way to conceal and make the zipper less accessible on the back bolster. Our dog when left alone for long periods must get bored because she finds a way to grab the zipper pull, that closes the rear bolster and manages to pull it across and get it open. She then grabs and pulls out the bolster padding from the compartment and chews and plays around with it. This has happened several times now. The last time she ripped the seam a little and was trying to pull out the stuffing. My wife will need to sow that seam back together. I was amazed our dog was able to find, grab and pull the zipper open. She doesn't bother the side bolsters. So, I have one big request of LLBean and that is to somehow have the zipper on the back bolster concealed better. Everything else is great about the dog bed.

by garnet10 Best dog bed ever!
My dog loves this bed! She loves cozying up against the bolsters and I love that it looks like a little couch for her. The material is strong and durable. The bolsters took a little work to get in, making me think twice about washing it too often, but once they were in they fit nice and snug.
I do wish the bottom pad was a bit thicker, but my dog doesn't seem to mind! They do run very big. Thankfully, I listened to other reviewers and sized down and purchased the Large size for my 85 pound German Shepherd. Luckily, we have space for it.
All in all, it's a great dog bed, and I'm very happy with this purchase!

Our Shih Tzu Bernie LOVES this bed. We got him the small indigo version for Christmas this year. He had zero separation anxiety for the bed he'd had for nearly five years. He jumped into this Bean bed and never looked back.
He loves to snuggle into the bolsters and lay his head on them. The memory foam is clearly very comfortable and gets him well off the cold floor at night. I cannot recommend this bed more highly.

by LLBeanFaninNC My dog LOVES it!
My dog is the customer here and she LOVES the bed. I had no trouble putting the bed together, it's just the pieces are bulky. Two people are helpful, read the directions first, it will save you time and bickering =). She's had it about a month now and we haven't had any problems. Note: do NOT open the memory foam package until you are sure you have the right bed size because repackaging it once it has poofed up is not easy. You can lay the bed down flat with or without the bolsters in it to see if your dog will fit. When I bought the bed the inside measurements of the bed (the space the dog would actually have as opposed to the overall dimensions) were not posted. But LLBean was, per usual, very helpful and provided me with the measurements. My dog is a shepherd-chow mix and is 67 pounds. She fits comfortably in the Large sized bed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Blacklabs2 Two English Labs love this bed
The dogs love this bed. Bought the xlardge and they will both lay on it, they are each 100lbs plus. Seem to love the side bolsters. I loved the bed until the first time I laundered it. The bolsters went in no problem..the egg crate pad is a struggle, why didn't they make the zippers longer. Would make it a lot easier! Not looking forward to washing this bed every other week..grrr!

by IndyNancy Durable, comfortable
We purchased this dog bed for our lab/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix 3 years ago at Christmas. We are thrilled with it. We keep it in the bedroom to keep the dog off our bed. Our dog is 75 lbs and we ordered the Large after plotting out the dimensions on the floor of several rooms in the house. She has plenty of room. I wash it quarterly or more frequently, but I put a padded crate liner or an LLBean dog blanket in it (which I wash weekly) to cut down on having to take it apart to wash. It takes a few minutes for my husband and me to assemble. It takes longer when I assemble it alone. It is challenging, but given the sturdy materials I find it a small price to pay for how well this bed has held up. It is important to use the inside zippers to position the bolsters efficiently. After 3 years there is no fraying, or holes. Also the foam insert has maintained its shape as have the bolsters. A great purchase. I would not be put off by the investment price as this piece will last.

by crankynetransplant Best bed, hands down
I have been on the hunt for a great dog bed for my 135 lb mastiff/dane mix. She is getting older (9 yrs) and needs the extra support. She is a very "active" sleeper - lots of scratching at the bed before settling down and "dream" running once asleep - I mention this because she shreds cheap fabric with her nails pretty easily. I purchased the bed in extra-large size in khaki, and am very pleased with it. First - it is huge! My dog and I can all fit in the bed together. I probably could have sized down to a large, but my dog likes to stretch out when she sleeps, and she needs the extra-large size to do that. Second - the mattress part of the bed is impressively thick. I was worried that it wouldn't provide enough support (most beds you can purchase from the big pet store brands have these cheap 3-4" mattresses), but this mattress is a a good quality 7" and gives lots of support. Third - the fabric is a very durable fabric - it will take a lot of abuse from nails before it rips. Finally, and most important, my dog LOVES it. I think this bed is worth every penny.
Thank you LLBean!! You did it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AyKayEs Very nice dog bed!
My dog loves this bed! She has three beds throughout the house, all different LLBean beds, but this is the one she sleeps in all night, in our bedroom. Tater is a field setter (English) who weighs 50 pounds and is 23" tall at the shoulders, but the medium is plenty roomy. Although it is a little tricky to put together the first few times, it's worth the effort because these cushions are firm but soft, and I know this bed is supportive and comfortable for her. She sleeps throughout the night and does not toss or turn; typically I wake in the morning to find her in exactly the same position as the night before. The cover washes beautifully and the color does not fade. My only complaint is that her other LLBean beds are all personalized with her name, but this bed didn't have the option for that. I called Customer Service to see if I could add that option but they said no. But that's no big deal, really, my dog can't read so she doesn't care. This bed costs more than most, of course, but it is a very high-quality, attractive bed that your dog will love and be able to use for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by treex3 Awesome bed
OMG! Love this bed! I bought this bed for my old arthritic dog. He has three other beds (also from LL Bean!) But he climbed into this bed and he just melted into it. He didn't get up for hours! He LOVES it. The bolster makes a big difference, enabling him to recline. The bolster also cuts the draft. My dog prefers this bed now to getting on the couch. One of his other beds is also therapeutic cushioning but he likes this one better because he can lay himself out and have a pillow under his head. This is the greatest bed ever!!!!
