Rated 5 out of 5 by Roughrider Premium Denim Dog Bed
We have purchased 5 of these, 2 replacement inserts, and have 2 complete beds on order again. For us the covers seem to be lasting about 6 years and the inserts about 3 years. This is with 2-3 huskies having their choice of 4 of these beds available in different locations in our garage. We also have 1 for use in the Suv on longer trips and in the tent when car camping with the dogs. If one improvement could be made it might be some kind of moisture proof liner over the insert to protect it from a wet dog and also to minimize odor transfer and retention. These are the best dog beds I have ever seen and it is a bonus to be able to order replacement covers and inserts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VermonterAl Had this for a couple years now
... so can report on durability. We have a 100 pound plus lab. Cover has been durable, but as others have noted, is a rough, canvas-like surface. Our dog now prefers his newer softer bed cover. The internal stuffing thinned out after a few months. I added purchased stuffing, but would probably be better with a foam adder.
Cleaning is easy - cover unzips easily. If there is a liquid spill, though, it will soak through and odors will linger.
Suggestions if you buy this: buy a memory foam insert from your local fabric store to set into the square area (you'll see it when you unzip the cover), and waterproof the cover with spray on waterproofing from camping / fabric store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maggiedanurse Huge
Just got the dog bed, so I don't know if it flattens out or how long it takes. I do know the bed is a large and it is huge. It will fit both my 100 lb lab and 70 lb cattle herder easily. I put it in the dining room in a corner so the dogs have an out of the way place to go.

Rated 2 out of 5 by desserts One small dog versus demin LLBean dog bed
How can one small Westie, chew a whole in his new bed in less than a few hours. I was hoping this bed would be better. Final score, Riley 1 - LLBean dog bed - 0

Rated 2 out of 5 by braquedad The weakest link
For the most part this is a quality dog bed. However, the zipper is cheap plastic and in less than an hour my dog had gotten to it and with a bite the plastic teeth are destroyed. I would have like to see a metal zipper or at the minimum a sealed zipper conceal.
Love the products...but this was a waste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cassiefree Great bed, Monogram needs work
This is an excellent bed, and our dog LOVES it. The cover comes off easily and quickly, and washes well. My only complaint is not with the bed, but in monogramming this particular item. They use a thread the same color as the bed, and place the monogram on the top, not the side, so it's not visible at all.
Bottom line...get the bed, but skip the monogram. :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by BeanShopperChicagoMom Comfy But Way Too Big
This bed seems comfy and well made. I just can't believe how big it is. I followed the sizing recs and purchased two xl beds for a 90 pound dog. Two 90 pounds could fit comfortably on the xl. Large would be been sufficient for a 90 pound dog. Only buy if you have a ton of floor space.

We wandered into LL Bean and bought this bed for Eleanor not knowing if she'd like it. Well she loves it. Within 10 minutes she already had her favorite rope on it and was making herself quite cozy. It is very well made, soft, washable, and has replaceable cores. Great bed for the money and one that we will get many years of service out of. Thank you LL Bean for another great product.

This bed is GREAT! We have two dogs and two cats and once we put this on the floor all our animals were eager to try it out. A lot of people like to buy a bed per animal-- in our case we wanted to buy a bed for ALL! The proof is in the pictures! Thanks guys!

Rated 3 out of 5 by PatriciaJS Bed is flat!
The covers on these beds are durable and really hold up for my two greyhounds (we have the denim covers), but the inserts have flattened to the point where I feel like they are sleeping on the floor. I have added blankets to the tops, but I'm disappointed for what these cost. So thumbs up for durability, but thumbs down for comfort.
