I cannot say enough about L.L. Bean dog beds! We purchased ours a few years ago for our two large dogs for "Christmas." More of a gift for us than the dogs. We wanted them to have a new "spot" instead of our couch! One of our dogs is older and has arthritis problems, this bed is great for her and makes getting up and down easier and more comfortable. Both dogs love these L.L. Bean beds so much that we had to order a second one because they would fight over the first. Not only are these beds wonderful for everyday use, they are also great for travel! They fit perfectly in the back of my SUV for long road trips, or just even a quick trip to town. Another great quality is the type of service that comes from L.L. Bean with their satisfaction guarantees and warranties. They offer replacement "stuffing" for the inside and covers for the outer covering. We also caught the bed during a free shipping promo! No complaints other than wishing it was a tad cheaper!
