I bought this bed in hopes of getting my Golden Retriever off the couch. As a rule she has chewed on any bed I've gotten her in the past. She is 18 months old and 76lbs. She fits in the bed with room to spare. She can curl up or spread out and put her head on the side as a pillow. The bottom is on the thinner side so I put in an old quilt that she has grown fond of and she seems to like that. I'm not sure how I'll wash it yet as there isn't a zip off cover to remove. It's all one piece. Maybe just vacumn and spot wash?? Overall I like the bed. My dog is slowly taking to it vs the couch. It's a good size for a mid to large size dog.
