Like Donna V's dog, mine actually SMILED too! My 6 year old Doberman loves to "move" her bed and blankets in and out of her house and around in her pen. During the rainy months they get wet and for a doberman, this is not good. I purchased this bed hoping that it would keep her dry (every pet owner knows you can't change them so learn to work around THEM!) Anyway, I gave it to her yesterday and she literally ran around the pen in circles and "catapulted" off the bed like a trampoline. I haven't seen her this excited since she was a puppy! She refused to get off the bed. I was worried in reading the reviews that it would take time for her to use it but am I glad I decided to purchase it. I bought an extra cover "just in case". I am expecting years of great things from this bed!
We have had this bed for almost 2 yrs now and it is Sierra's FAVORITE. Like others stated, it took a few tries before she would get on it, but once she did she was hooked. I bought a replacement cover when I first ordered the product and I swapped it out today. It was not worn out...I was just tired of looking at Green so now I am looking at Terracotta! My 11 yr old dog couldn't be happier. I swear she smiles when she gets on it...no, really, she does! :-)
I bought two of these over 7 years ago and just now have ordered replacement covers. My two large dogs stay outside during the day and these have been in constant use every day. Only recently did they start to show signs of wear. So easy to keep clean too - just hose them off! The dirt and sand the dogs pick up just falls through - so they are cleaner too! At first it took them awhile to try them and trust them, but once they did, they both used them all the time. Fantastic product for a truly unbelievable value.
