I bought this bed for my 12 year old because I thought she would like the extra support. She loves the bed and uses it every day. All my dogs take a turn on it, even my 75 pound male can curl up on the medium. The large was too big for the dog bed space in our bedroom and the medium is really too small for my dogs. I would love to see Casper make a medium/large size- around 38" long. My only complaint is the cover- it shows wet spots from drool etc.. It is a good thing that the cover is easy to take off and wash. I like this bed because it maintains it shape and doesn't flatten out like some of the llbean beds we've had in the past.
Our dog just fits, she is a fireplug of a pup, a solid 56 lbs. we were concerned the medium wouldn’t be big enough but the large was so big. She fits perfectly especially since she can rest her big bully head on the side bolsters. If she was bigger it would be too small. She has slept in our bed since we got her at 6 weeks. She is now 5 and we didn’t think she’d stay in this bed but after several nights she is now loving it, feeling safe and secure in her own space. She has several beds thru out the house but this is the one she sleeps in, will even go in it during the day.
WhenI first got the bed I thought it was more waterproof than it is. My dog is getting old so we wanted something that was easily cleaned and durable. This bed is very durable and comfortable for her but we purchased a waterproof single bed liner to cover it and then a thick mattress pad cover to over that so she would not over heat. We covered all of it with a lovely leopard print GIANT pillow case cover. Eva absolutely adores this bed! Adding the extras may seem like over-kill but it is easier to clean the outer layers than to take the bed apart and wash the cover weekly. The only thing I would change would be to make the fabric a two-tone smaller print. It would camouflage many dog hairs and slobber spots. Not all dogs a particularly neat. Overall I love the bed and Eva thanks you!
While I love my new mattress and little pillow, I still like the bigger version on my mom’s bed best. I do like to sneak off and nap all day on my new bed though. It’s a very innovative design and the best dog bed I’ve ever had!
Milly loves to dig and love the durability of this. I wish you would make a mattress to fit a dog crate!
For my Fiona, lots of her snoring for us. This is the ultimate dog bed and I believe we are qualified to say so as we have had the extra snore variety for over 15 years- 3 English Bulldogs, a frenchie and two bull mastiffs during those years. From the moment the bed arrived all three were curious- the two Bulldogs will snuggle together on one medium and Fiona will sleep on a medium with her head hanging off while the Frenchie curls in a corner of the large. Fortunately no fighting as long as each has some corner or space on the Casper beds. We really love them because they are so easy to keep clean. Just zip apart and wash the cover and no matter how dirty - they come out of the wash looking brand new. It's a great material that doesn't seem to hold stains. While my husband and I watch tv, there is nothing more relaxing than watching the pack asleep on their beds. They are breeds that tend to snore, however I think the design and stuffing inside is made with something we like to call the snore factor. They are LOUD but then that's what remote controls are for. Great job Casper!!
It looks good, I think she likes it. Actually I think she likes the toy more and only tolerates the dog bed because we don't let her sleep in our bed. No I'm just kidding- she loves the bed. I'm really glad we went with the medium size even though she isn't a very big dog, because it lets her stretch her out on her side. The design fits our home in terms of size and style.
Thor is Mr. Picky about Everything, so of course it stands to reason that we've tried a number of different beds for him and none have ever been quite right (kind of like the Princess & the Pea situation) But - Happy Days! - his Casper bed is absolutely perfect! He loves it and so does his younger sister, who also never wants to leave it. Thor's mum can't wait for the day that she orders her own (people) Casper mattress but in the meantime, she's happy to spoil this most important family member. (Must also mention - the size and construction are excellent and the bed is worth every penny.)
My kiddos LOVE their new Casper beds! The large size was a bit much for our home (although the dogs loved that one too - they both could’ve slept on that one together, it was so large!), but the dogs fit well on the medium bed curled up (they’re lab/retriever mixes - one is 61 lbs and the other is 74 lbs). And the cat loves it as well...sometimes he will kick the dogs off to lay on it.
When I first pulled the mattress pieces out of the box I was a little surprised because I didn't realize I had to put it together (all of my previous dog beds were purchased made/built) so I was wary of that. When it was put together I didn't think it looked like it was worth the price, until my dog Bastian (who the bed was originally purchased for) immediately dove in and was playing in it and loving it. I've had it for a few weeks now and it's still his favourite bed. We have 3 dog beds and if they're all empty. He will choose the Casper mattress above all the others... sometimes he'll choose his Casper mattress over sleeping in bed with me (when his fur-siblings aren't in the bed). So overall, I'm very happy with the mattress, I would and have recommended it to friends. It may not be the most glamorous looking bed, but it's my dog's favourite one... his siblings even try to steal it from time to time. I would definitely purchase this mattress again. Good job Casper!
