As a volunteer worker and foster parent for the Delta Humane Society, we have a need to make our pets as comfortable as possible. We are a non-profit organization and have to rely on others or finding our own good deals. This bed was an answer to a solution! It was a bargain price for a well-manufactured product. We currently have a German Shepherd with hip displasia who rests very comfortably on this bed and hasn't any problems getting up from it. I would recommend this bed to anyone who has pets they want to pamper.
