I just bought my dog this and wanted to share how bloody fab it is. It looks great, dog loves it and best of all no smell. I've searched in the past for a fully washable dog bed and not found one so dog had an old duvet instead. But I worried that even doubled over it wasn't thick enough/comfy enough.
My Lab might like one but my 2 GSDs would be scared of it!
Fortunately they all sleep on my sofas and beds so they don't need anything else although they do have dog beds in the kitchen just so they can avoid anything hot and dangerous when they follow me in there.
<<realises that she's the main reason why folk claim they won't post in Doghouse and checks for 666 on forehead>>
I have a babygate now for the living room to stop her <evil mummy> but if I forget to put it up then as I open the front door she comes bolting out the living room and races to her bed in the dining room and is curled up on there in 3 seconds flat pretending she's been there all day.
Ditto if I forget to shut DD's bedroom door. I open the front door when I come home and there is a clatter from upstairs followed by a greyhound bolting down the stairs and making for her bed.
Aw - I didn't know that was called roaching. My lurcher boy loves lying like that as well (that is when he's not surfing the worksurfaces or leaning on some poor soul pleading for affection ).
We have a baby gate between the kitchen where the dogs' beds are and the living room - but darling lurcher lad can sail over the top of it like a youthfull gazelle should the mood take him. We tried getting one of the extra tall dog gates early on - completely pointless - 5ft and he leapt it as if it wasn't even there.
Back to the topic. I've looked at those beds a few times, but we'd have to get an enormous one, as my two would insist on lying on it together and I don't think we we have a room in the house that's big enough for that. They are a great idea though, the lack of pressure points thing really makes sense.
To be fair, our boy only does it very rarely these days. We spent a lot of time reinforcing staying on the right side when we had dd, as I was really worried he'd leap over and land on her and he's quite a big lad. Needn't have worried though - he is so gentle around the dcs and has never once jumped over when there's been a child on the other side.
We are having an extension next year and I think I might consider a hammock type bed for them then.
