The shredded memory foam pet bed was tightly packaged for distribution and so it was quite compressed when I first removed it from the plastic bag. It quickly expanded to the size described. The dimensions of the large pet bed are 46 inches by 28 inches as indicated and the top measures about 5 inches from the floor when not compacted. Our dog is a very large breed, so I wasn’t certain that this bed would accommodate her. She extends over the edges when she stretches out, but it is adequate for her usual sleep positions and she appears to be comfortable. It is flat, without any ridges, as shown on the advertising materials. The shredded memory foam fill is encased in material that is sewn into four compartments so the memory foam does not bunch up. The outer cover seems sturdy and has a zipper so it can easily be removed for laundering. The top of the cover is soft and suede-like while the fabric on the bottom feels like the outer layer of a sleeping bag. I do not detect any of the odors of the memory foam when the outer cover is on. The colors are neutral and should work well with most color schemes. The shredded memory foam makes the pet bed very flexible. It is simple to fold it up for storage when not in use or to take along for travel. I let my teen-age children try it out when I first brought it home. They campaigned strongly to designate it as the family TV pillow rather than the pet bed. They thought it was comfortable and loved the pliability. We may have to get another one for the humans in the house!
My dog seems very happy with this bed. I love the chopped memory foam. It think these beds give more support than fiber filled and more comfort than the feeling of being on a sponge that a block of memory foam brings. My only complaint is that something in the cover crinkles. It's probably a waterproof layer designed to protect the inner material, but it can be a little noisy in the bedroom when you're going to sleep. You probably wouldn't notice if the bed were somewhere else in the house.
I ordered this bed for my German shepherd's Vari-kennel. It is a perfect fit. The cover is really nice-almost a suede feel to it. It is, however, much harder than most memory foam beds I have bought here and I think that is because it is pieces of memory foam instead of a solid sheet of foam. I have three German Shepherds and only one seems to like this bed.
