We have a 10 year old beagle who was just diagnosed with disc disease - and we live on a 6th floor walkup in NYC. He's always been partial to sleeping on an old armchair, but when we found out about his back, we decided to get him a real dog bed.
I was a little hesitant at first - he's never slept in a dog bed before - but it came yesterday - and he took to it right away. Oh my gosh, the tempurpedic is wonderful and the material feels so good. He's been unmoveable since then - even sharing it with one of our other beagles.
Absolutely - it is worth every penny. I can highly recommend this bed for anyone with a senior dog.,We purchased this bed 5 months ago for three 45 - 50 pound Border Collies. None of them would use it at all until I put a thin, soft bed over it. Then they would sleep in it for a little while, then get up and move to another softer bed. The Tempur-Pedic foam is incredibly firm. We have a Tempur-Pedic bed for ourselves, and I know that there are many levels of firmness available. For any but a really large, heavy dog, or a dog that really prefers to lay on a firm surface, this bed is too hard. It is so firm that when a human lays on it, it gives great support! Also, when the house is cooler in the winter, the foam is even harder. We finally returned it and got the same bed with the Orvis Memory Foam. This foam is a little on the soft side, so it may not last as well, but the dogs really like it and will sleep in it without an extra bed on top. One last comment about the Deep Dish dog beds in general - as others have commented, there needs to be a size in between medium and large for dogs like ours. Listing the inside dimensions in the beds' descriptions would also be handy.,When I first removed this dog bed from it's packing box I thought my sixty pound black Lab (Shay) will never lay on a hard bed like that.
Was I wrong.....she loves it.
My wife and I bought a memery foam bed a couple of years ago and we thought the same thing.....too hard.
Like this dog bed once you lay on it and "settle in" your hooked.
Pricy, but worth it for your best friend.,I knew from all the great reviews this would be great for my pekingese, specifically for the one with back problems. Even the small size was very large (4pekes could fit in it) and actually it is cumbersome. But I read dimensions so I was going with it. Neither dogs wanted to sleep on it. Perhaps because with short legs they had to jump up onto it? When given a choice between an old towel on floor and bed...they chose the towel. After spending so much on 2 beds I was very disappointed my dogs didn't even want to be in them. Even after 2 months they are not happy about sleeping on them. I would send them back but I had them personalized.,My lab took a little while to use/like it. Now it's the only place he'll sleep. We've used it for several months now and the quality seems great - although he's pretty easy on it I.e. no chewing, scratching, etc. He weighs 50 lbs. We actually have two of these beds for him in two different rooms. The first one we purchased was a large - sized from the chart. It is really much larger than he needs. Our second one is a small and it is really plenty large. Great bed!
