No more dry-cleaning bills!!!! -
By: Burschi from Ontario
Burschi is a small dog who in the mornings likes to be picked up for a snooze at the bottom of my bed. Up to now there have been lots of dry-cleaning bills for my expensive bedspread and duvet. No more! Burschi is fussy about what he chooses to lie on, but he really likes this throw, and I don't have to worry anymore about the extra time he spends lying on it. Ithe generous size of the throw covers the third of the bed very adequately, and it is a handsome addition to the bedroom furnishings. Burschi sends a wag of his tail!

I was so excited to get this blanket because we have light colored couches and I thought this was the perfect way to allow my dog up with us without getting the couch dirty. We own a big, playful dog who is frequently getting into dirt and grass. As a result this blanket became dirty quickly and I washed it often (once every 2 weeks). After a couple months the edges began to tear and come apart. I am so disappointing because I love Orvis but now I am beginning to question the quality of their products. If you are still going to purchase this product would recommend buying a dark color and not washing it often.

when the dog throw arrived we thought it might be too small but it was fine!It looks lovely,washes easily and is much easier to rearrange than our previous set up,what's more the Dog gives me a dirty look whenever I sit on it as she always wants to lie there!
Great product, better if tad wider -
By: NewfLady from Westchester County, NY
We actually bought the dog proof throw to cat proof our couches. The product is attractive, sturdy and waterproof. It would be a five star item if it were a tad wider (length is good), to better cover the back of the couch to the edge of the seat. As it is, if I drape it to just cover the top of the couch back, and crease it where the back meets the seat, the throw just barely covers the seat of the couch. It would be a more versatile product if it were about 6-8 inches wider. Note that the throw washes nicely. As always, Orvis offers excellent product quality.
Worth the money -

We reviewed many pet throws to see what best met our needs and finally took a chance on this one. It was by far the most attractive, went best with our decor, and didn't have the drawbacks of the others; but it cost more. The quality and functionality met and even exceeded our expectations. Since our puppy has "put it to the test", we know it launders very well!
Doesn't Hold Its Color -

Overall the blanket does what you would expect a blanket to do and provides a barrier between your companion and your furniture. However the blanket did not hold up to washings and faded noticeably. It remained stitched together and in that way is good quality, but the coloring just didn't look good over time.
great but strange size -
for a rhodesian ridgeback on the coach... too long and not wide enough to cover everything.. I had to cut it and sew it so that it is more of a square.. great quality!
Dog Proof Throw -
By: from Alexandria VA
I really like this dog proof throw. I got the large size to use on my king size bed. I picked this over the dog proof coverlet because I wanted to be sure that I could wash it in my front loading washer. It is the usual Orvis high quality product. It is heavy and stays in place. It looks great on the bed too.
Good, but not quite what I expected -
From looking at the picture of the product, you'd think this was a nice soft blanket. But in fact, it's fairly heavy and somewhat stiff. It can take dog scratching and chewing really well and not look worse for the wear, but that ruggedness comes at a cost to the comfort and softness of the blanket. You can also feel the layer of plastic in the middle. It protects my couch but isn't all that good as a soft throw. This would probably be better suited for a car than a couch.
better than expected -
This is a nice, fairly heavy blanket pad. Certainly more substantial than just a throw. It is just the right size on a queen bed to cover the dog sleeping area thereby providing accident-safety in the key area.
