I love this dog bed. If this bed can withstand my chewin hound dog/blue heeler pup, I'm sure it can withstand any other. First of all, she does not view it as a toy, she actually sleeps on it and does not toss it around like the other beds. I use this bed as her outdoor bed so when it rains she doesn't get wet. It gets hot in these Georgia summer months and she can also get relief from the hot temperature. I got the bed embroidered with her name, and it is really cute. The material is very durable and withstands her paw nails with no problems. The piping that frames the bed is a wonderful idea, and it is so easy to put together! I think every dog guardian should have one of these for their best buds! It is a little pricey but totally worth it, it will last a life time.
