Rated 5 out of 5 by EFM47 Great for older dogs!
My pup has never been a dog bed kind of guy. He has always had free rein of the furniture, but in his old age he's been struggling to get himself up onto the couches.
A few months ago I finally sprung for the large therapeutic dog couch. He uses it everyday now and I can tell when he is laying in it that his breathing is less labored and he appears more relaxed.
He falls on the lager side of medium, and smaller side of large so since he's a "sprawler" I went with the large to make it more comfortable for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by alydazy Sturdy, comfortable, high-quality bed
I purchased this bed for my 12 year old lab about 4 1/2 years ago. I ordered the Large bed, which is perfect for my 70lb. lab. He sleeps on this bed every night and seems to love it! The bed and bolsters have stood up well over time and are still in like-new condition.
The cover on this bed is very sturdy but we just noticed this evening that there was a hole in the seam. I ordered a replacement cover and since this item is guaranteed, I will be returning the original cover for a full refund.
As other reviewers have mentioned, I do have to struggle every time I take the bed apart to wash the cover. This item has a very tailored fit and is sometimes difficult to put back together. Over the years, I have been able to reduce my re-assembly time to about 10 minutes. While this is annoying, I appreciate that the bed has such a tight fit because it is like-new every time it is reassembled.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for high-quality bedding for their pet, especially if you have a senior dog.

by RLL5 It's perfect!
Received dog bed (XL) in burlap yesterday. Had it put together in minutes, 2 people, not counting the time needed for the foam to regain it's shape , which was a few hours. Read all the reviews, it is big, but wanted it for both of my dogs. Great quality, perfect solution. Colt and Rellie love it!

Reading previous reviews helped me decide what size to get. We have a Boykin spaniel who weights about 35 lbs and he has plenty of room. We plan to get a yellow English Lab soon, who will probably get up to 49 lbs and think the medium size will also be big enough for her. It is excellent quality, very durable for those chewers.

by oldmum28311 Love this bed!
I have a 13 year old beagle, at his age he's developed some back trouble.. After looking at the rubbish sold in my local pet stores & superstore I was frustrated beyond belief & took to the internet. Some of the reviews on the product had me a bit leery, but over all they were good so I took a chance. I'm so very glad I did!
When I first opened & unpackaged the mattress I did have an OMG moment. Within an hour however the mattress had recovered it's shape perfectly.. So don't panic!
Assembly wasn't bad- just follow the instructions. A second set of hands is helpful especially when putting the mattress in. Aside from that one little thing - the bed went together easily.
Most importantly, the beagle the bed was purchased for loves it. He's sleeping well & is very happy :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by aliVK snug for a pug!
Our pug loves this bed! He is over 10 years of age so I wanted to find a good support bed for him that he would enjoy. He loves the bed very much and spends much of his time each day in this bed. I would definitely recommend the bed.
I would state that the installation process was a bit confusing.
Other than that, this is another great purchase from LL Bean - great products, great customer service and great prices.

This bed is wonderful! I purchased the XL and there is plenty of room for my 85lb lab. You could probably fit two labs to be quite honest. Definitely recommend and easy to assemble!

We purchased the size large therapeutic dog couch our our 85lb labrador, Trigger. He absolutely loves his bed. We upgraded from the LL Bean Premium Dog Bed. He likes to lean up against the back part. Sometimes he curls up really small and I think that I should have got the Medium size for him, but then other times, he sprawls out and takes up all of the room. We covered the bed with a fleece blanket that I picked up from a local retailer, and then put the size large LL Bean Fleece Topped Pet Blanket on top of that. Trigger loves the soft blanket. We love this bed and are so glad that we made an upgrade.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Marym8070 too hard
This extra large size bed is to hard & lumpy so my 4 dogs all hate it. We have the same bed & fabric in the large size which is perfect for 1 golden retriever. All 4 of my dogs try to sleep in it so I ordered the extra large size to accommodate them. We have 2 golden retirevers, 1 beagle & 1 pit bull mix. The size is great but none of the dogs like this bed because it is much more firm & harder than the large size. I placed the 2 beds side-by-side & even switched places to see if anything worked.. It didn't. The extra large memory foam cushion is hard & lumpy. Unfortunately, I'm returning the bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeadedRoyalty A bed fit for 2 queens
I love this bed. We have 2 English Springer Spaniels who are 12 and 15 years old so they have definitely earned this "theraputic" bed! It is super comfy for them - both fit comfortably on the X-Large with room to spare.
The material is super durable (we have the indigo denim) and resists dirt very well. I vacuum it weekly and we bath the girls monthly. We have had it for over a year now and just washed it for the first time. It had only just started to show any dirt, but now it looks brand new!
Yes, it is a pain to reassemble after washing, but what dog bed with this many pieces and features wouldn't be hard to assemble? The cover fits perfectly with no sagging or excess...even after a year of use. I highly recommend to all!
