Rated 5 out of 5 by Elizabethinchicago Excellent quality and decent looking for the couch
This pet blanket was the only one that worked for us. I ordered this item in extra-large pine nut color. I have a 30 lb mini poodle lab mix. She is active and likes to snuggle on my beautiful leather couch. We bought the pet blanket to protect my couch for everyday use. I love it. It looks put together and works for our pet and for us. The quilted side is soft and silky and she likes to snuggle on it. The canvas side is better for warmer weather use. I tuck the edges into the back and side of the couch cushion and it stays put and protects my beautiful couch without looking tacky or being uncomfortable for my dog or for us. Well worth the money. Washes well. Best pet blanket I have found with durability and good looks.

This is thick and lush, and my dog instantly loved it. The reverse side has just enough texture to it to keep it from sliding across the hardwood floors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LoveMyCorgis Bring Back Pevious Version
I have three of the older versions of this blanket and four of the older version dog bed covers. They were purchased anywhere from nine to eighteen years ago and are still as good as new. We have used the older blankets in the car and on the sofa. We have used them on the beach and on picnics. On very cold nights, we even snuggle under them while watching T.V. The new version is made from a polyester material, both front and back sides. Although it is pretty and soft to the touch, I doubt that it will offer the warmth or the durability of the previous version. I rated it two stars only because it is made well despite the material. I am a loyal LLBean customer but have been disappointed over the last few years because I feel they are using cheaper materials. Please bring back better quality materials and items "Made in the USA".

Rated 1 out of 5 by twoboxersandalab want the old ones back
I have 3 dogs and 6 of the old blankets in various states of wear. I have been buying the old plaid version for about 10 years or more. The size kept getting smaller and smaller for the same price but the quality was there so I didn't mind. Every 6 months I buy a new one and add it to the rotation. This new pattern and style does not compare to the nice plaid ones. The size large is what a small used to be. They are too thin and the material is nothing like the fleece plaid. I want the old pattern and quality back! I will be returning the one I just bought and looking somewhere else.

I bought three of these, one in each color, had them monogrammed (for free thanks to having the L.L. Bean VISA card) and now, each of my very spoiled cats have one.
I have washed them a few times already (thanks to a flea outbreak here in Calif. thanks to the drought!) and they came out just fine on a regular wash/dry routine using regular laundry detergent.
These are nice but a bit pricey but a doable purchase if you happen to have a L.L. Bean coupon to secure the purchase. Of the three colors available, I like the brown one the best. As for the cats, not sure which one they like the best. Finicky finicky finicky indeed! ;~)
