These beds are wonderful! I currently have four... one is new ...the others have been around for several years. All also have the double sheepskin pads for winter. The original canvas pads are still on them all, and in good condition. Three have gone though several Chows and one has been used for two years by a Sussex Spaniel. The only thing that has needed repair...and it was easy...is one whose dog thinks he's a mechanic and removed a couple of screws. I intend to buy more ...I have 10 dogs!
We have had our bed for almost 6 years now and the 3 adult dogs that we have had during that time have loved, or love, this bed. We bought a large bed because our two pitbulls loved to snuggle together. It was big enough for both of them to be comfortable. When we lost one of our girls to cancer, we adopted a lab/pit mix who was much longer than our previous dog. He still loved to snuggle with the other dog and still fit really well. I have put it outside during the summer on the porch and they have loved sleeping on that better than the wood or concrete. It's super easy to clean...just hose it off or vacuum!!!
