poor quality dog bed -
I was surprised at the poor quality of these dog beds because I have found Orvis to be reliable on dog bed quality in the past. My dog likes to "fluff" her bed and she was able to create tears in this material right away. I returned them after just a few days of use, and now need to find a more durable brand.
lasts to long -

I have had 3 of these and am ordering a 4th,because the insides wear out ,BUT the outside cover does not,even after frequent washings...I wish Orvis would let you order just the insides...!
One step forward, and one step back -
By: jweli from Western Montana
The original design was better: easy-on, easy-off cover; and the filling was encased in a mesh material that facilitated removal and replacement. The filler in the newer design has a flimsy netting material that fails to hold the filler together making it difficult to take out; putting it back in is even more difficult. Although the covers on both beds are washable and easy to clean, the newer-designed cover is even easier to keep clean. When I wrote Orvis, they replied that the original filler with mesh cover is no longer available. Although I need three new beds, I won't purchase this product again.
Durable & Attractive Outdoor Dog Bed -
By: IamK9crazy from Gainesville, FL
I purchased two Orvis outdoor dog beds about 6 months ago. The covers wash up nicely; the inserts drain well after a rain soaking. I am happy with the quality, style & durability of the beds, but I do not routinely leave them out in the elements. My dogs love them too!
holds water like a sponge -

I am not sure whether we received a defective bed but the one we have does not live-up to the description. We have bought at least five other Orvis dog beds and they were all great. This is supposed to be an outdoor bed and to shed water. I am currently drying out the bed for at least the fourth time this month. It is so saturated that water is running out of running out of the bed while it is hanging. The bed is under cover and only gets rain that blows in - I even built an elevated, perforated platform but nothing helps. I should have just bought another bed with a waterproof liner. This bed can not be left outdoors, except in dry weather. Definitely not a "watershed" bed.
great looking -

The bed is made well and It looks great, but I don't know how comfortable it is, when given the choice my dog Sam always chooses his old bed.....it is round and maybe he fits better on the round because he likes to curl up.
Great bed for dirty dogs -
I purchased two of these beds a year ago, as I was looking for something truly water-loving for the back of my SUV, as my 2 labs are usually wet (and muddy) when in the car, and I wanted something that cleaned and rinsed well. So far happy about the beds (they use them outside too), especially the fact that they clean up well (rinse the bed and/or throw cover in wash). However, the covers themselves are not holding up so well to the use/abuse - seams are starting to split and there are lots of scratches/mini tears in the fabric from nails (even though my dogs nails are trimmed every week). That said, I still like the beds and recommend them, just wish the cover material held up better - thinking about getting replacement covers soon.
lived through the seasons -
By: doggiesandkitties from Maine
I bought this bed almost 4 years ago. I was not diligent about bringing it inside for the Maine winters. It survived this long being lounged on frequently by my beagles and their bigger friends. Now I am purchasing a new one because a bigger friend (shepherd mix) who is still a puppy, thought it would work great being dragged around the back yard. In about 30 minutes it finally ripped apart. Wow This bed has been through weather, dogs and stood up very very well. It is worth every penny.
Dog wouldn't use it -
I have an older golden retriever. I ordered the large and it was pretty small for my dog. Also it was channel filled and very lumpy and uneven. My dog had too much trouble trying to get on and off it.
favorite dog bed -
with 2 hounds everything comes in twos. this is the best cushion for out door lounging and stack it for indoor use. they are learning to share when it is stacked. thinking of getting more. very durable and washes well.
