Our puppy loves this bed because she can get in and out of it so easily. It’s soft and fluffy. I purchased one for my son’s dog as well and she loves it.
She has not used it yet
My dog loves this bed. Molly is 13 and very fussy over her beds but she had no hesitation jumping in this one! She sleeps in it in a number of different poses; hard to tell where the dog starts and the bed ends.
It appears to be of excellent quality. I have ordered a second one as a gift for a friend's dog.
Very soft and cushy. Great size for my 5lb. chihuahua. She loves this bed!
Bought the Large size for my 13 lb cat. He jumped right into and made himself comfy. It looked huge but it fits him perfectly with a bit of extra room. Very soft, warm, and cozy. It would be perfect for winter time. The bed came in separate pieces but was easy to put together and the zipper zips up smoothly.
LOVE this bed and so does my dog!!! Darling bed. And so, so cozy. Was looking for a smaller bed for my puppy...that was also soft and cozy. Oh my gosh ... this bed exceeded all expectations.
I took in an emaciated feral cat in January who did not look like he would live very long. He did not agree with that assessment. He proved us all wrong. He ate and ate and ate until he started gaining weight. He has an overactive thyroid, so he gets medication for that, he has kidney disease, so he gets sub-q fluids and special food, and he is very brittle. He pretty much sleeps non-stop (he would eat non-stop if allowed!). He's clearly had a hard life, half his tail is missing, the vet said it appeared a bone in his chest had been broken at some point and healed, and he is at least 10-12 years old., having spent his whole life in a colony.
As I tried different beds for him I realized that he really liked the ones that were really soft and cuddle him in, so I splurged and bought him this bed. He didn't like it at first, until I put his blanket over it. Now he loves it. He only gets up once in a while to stretch and sometimes sleeps in a different bed for an hour or so...and then back to this bed.
I figure at this point in his life he deserve to feel safe and secure and do whatever he wants. His name is Grumpers...or Grumpy Nubs (his tail being a nub)...because he just looks like a grumpy old man!
My two dogs actually fight over this bed.. they race to be the first to �claim� it at bedtime. The bed is very well made, and seems to be comfortable for them. The cover is extremely soft fabric that is removable for washing. I�m probably going to have to buy a second one.. lol
Really nice quality. My puppy is 5.5 pounds and has plenty of room to grow into to. She really loves sleeping in it.
So lucky I'm bad at returning stuff and bad at leaving reviews. Had I of been good at both I wouldn't still have the bed and the review would have been bad. We got this as a "christmas present" for the cats. Well for 3 months they wouldn't go near it, I tried it in every room of the house, on the floor, on the bed, on the couch, and they avoided this thing like the plague. I even picked up the cats and put them in it, and they immediately jumped out.
Yet one miraculous day, I put it near the window on a chair, and my cat got in it, and now goes in it every day and takes naps in it every day. I'm not sure why or what got him to do it but he's doing it now and loves it. So I guess my only tip is if your cat doesn't love it at first, maybe give it a little bit before returning it, it definitely took a while for it to grown on him. (Other cat still doesn't go near it, but she's a pain anyways :))
I've never seen a cat sleep so deeply. There have been a few times my cat was so sound asleep that I thought he was dead! I woke him up and he’d been so asleep his eyes were crossed and he was drooling. It took him a day or two to find the bed, but once he did, he was hooked. Highly recommend!
I received this medium-sized bed today. I wish I had taped my 8 y/o 11 lb Min Pin practically swan diving into this thing. I did get a picture of her first 2 seconds laying on it though! She has other comfy beds, but I'm a sucker for keeping her comfy in every corner of the house. (She has trained me well.) I still work remotely right now, and I needed a bed that she could use under my desk at my feet without having to worry about a blanket for her to burrow. As of our 1st day, this is a winner! I plan to update my post the first time we wash it. Sounds like that could the make or break point with its future review. 2 pictures attached - first 2 seconds on the bed and one as soon as I moved it under my desk.
Update 12/23/2020 - I finally washed the bed last night on delicate cycle (cold/cold) and airdried it. It fluffed back up and looks brand new; HOWEVER, right after I washed it, my washer wouldn't spin in the next laundry load. I googled what causes this issue and it's a clogged drain. I opened the washer drain and OMG - the amount of bedding fuzz in the drain was crazy! It was at least the size of my fist. My dog doesn't shed so this was a pure bedding clog. I looked closely at the bed and do see light bald spots now. I plan to wash again over time, but I fully expect to have to clean out the washer drain afterward and will watch this bed slowly become bald over time.
Our Grace is one of those cats that will never stay where you want her to. Problem solved. She has competition for this bed. Our second cat steals it when she gets up for a bit. Hilarious to watch the expression on her face when she returns to find it occupied. Selecting 5 stars for "easy to clean" since it says it can be machine washed. I have not actually washed it yet, though.
I bought 2 beds. The pink one seems smaller than the navy. They were both supposed to be medium. But they both fit fine. The navy actually looks bluish grey but I like the color. I let them both puff up overnight like suggested and they did. I introduced them to my dogs. They knew just what to do. They gave them a few sniffs and got in. My male has not left it and fell asleep. My female only got out twice to see if there were any squirrels outside to bark at and then got back in. I will wash with care when I need to because I read some people had problems. I’ll let you know. For right now my dogs are in love.
I bought the medium only because the small was out of stock. Brian Wilson is an 8 week old mini dachshund. I honestly thought this bed was going to be massive however I am very glad I decided to go with the medium since his brother Bruce Bochy comes to visit a lot it’s the perfect size for the both of them to snuggle ! It is so soft exactly like pictured it does come vacuum sealed so you have to do a little bit of work to pull apart the stuffing and fluff it up . But it’s great I will probably be getting another for the bedroom as well !
I absolutely love this pillow. I was going to wait for when my puppy was slightly older and more potty-trained to introduce her to it, but after several sleepless nights trying to get her to sleep in her crate, I added this pillow into it and it was like magic. She curled up and fell asleep quickly! Even now as I write this, she’s laying on it, sleeping soundly. I don’t know what I’m going to do when she get too big for it, as the large pillow doesn’t look large enough for her projected size as an adult.
In the two weeks I’ve had this pillow, I have already washed it once. I washed it on delicate cycle in my machine and then dried it in my dryer on delicate with a dryer sheet added. It came out fluffier and softer than it did before.
I bought three of these donut beds for my multiple ancient pets in September 2019. I've seen reviews saying some people got limp ones, but mine are huge and fat! I worried that my ancient chihuahua wouldn't be able to climb up into the middle, but when he puts his paws on the side it sort of rocks or tilts a little, allowing him to climb aboard his cloud. Every single one of my multiple animals ( cats/dogs, all ages but mostly ancient), love these beddies.
I have washed them all at least once a month, regular front loader cycle, in hot, and dried on hot. They come out even fluffier and are especially great after giving them a scrubby bubble massage ( a bath) when they climb in after being blow dried and still a tiny bit damp, and are surrounded on all sides by soft warm fluff.
I did notice after a while that the very tips of the tiny rubber anti slip nobs on the bottom panel of the bed started coming off in the wash. I thought at first they were small flat bugs and spent a lot of time with a magnifying glass and doing internet research to find out what they were, ( I couldn'tsee any legs) until I finally noticed that the tiny shiny little nob tips ( about 1/8th inch big) from the anti slip panel had started coming off and showed up in my dryer filter. Whew! !! And also the fur on the bottom sides of the walls look a little smooshed together, but I take a rubber furniture brush to fluff them gently and it fluffs most of it up again, but considering the number of times they've been washed, and that it is barely noticeable, it doesn't detract from the appearence because the top part is what everyone sees. And anyway, my animals don't care about the effects of constant use and washings of their well loved beds as long as they are soft and fluffy. They LOVEthem!
This morning my little Skippy had a scrubby bubble massage and after a blow dry he climbed into the center of his super fluffy beddie and sank right in and almost disappeared. I know he's in there because I hear him snoring away. My animals love these beds!
He slept in it all night and then jumped back in it again after breakfast. Medium size was perfect. It arrives vacuum-packed and hard, but it fluffs right out. The slight smell from the plastic wrap was gone after a few minutes in the dryer on "fluff" setting and a few minutes out in the fresh air. If it had smelled, he wouldn't have stayed in it for a minute. At 13 years old, I thought he deserved a cushy bed; we've tried everything, and this is a winner.
Bought the medium for my 13lb dachshund to sit near me while I work from home. She always needs a blanket to crawl under, but she loves chilling next to me on this plush bed.
Takes a bit to air out, comes vacuum sealed. Does fluff out in a few hours.
It must be super comfortable because my male cat keeps the other cats from using it. That has forced me to buy two more to keep peace in the household.
This is one of those type of items that my cats instantly liked. There was no getting use to it and then after a week or so they might sleep on it. Nope, as soon as I opened it up and placed it on the floor - The big male cat was on it and stayed on it for many hours.

Little boy won't get out of little girl's new bed so now I have to get another one. Awesome. Dogs love it, great for their joints, for warmth, for snuggling down into on cold nights. They absolutely love it since the moment I put it down.!
it just came in today. I hand fluffed it a bit, hopefully it'll fluff up even more tomorrow. It seems to fit my 15 year old 15 lb shih tzu perfectly! My only complaint (and why I may have to return) is that the center cushion is very thin and I had purchased this in hopes of cushioning my old little ones joints.
**** July 2020 update:
We've had the bed a couple of months now and I have to say my dog sure does love it so we kept it. We actually purchased two of these donut beds -- this brand and another. I personally thought the other one would suit him better - it seemed fluffier and looked more aesthetically pleasing in our apt, but my dog constantly picked this one. AND the other one ended up ripping on the third day so we gave it to our cousin who sewed it up for her dog. I will say he does seem very very comfortable. He refused to leave it the first day and its his new go-to.
Also, now that I've had it a couple months I can do a review of the WASH! Before washing I read reviews that the fibers were damaged, the fluff was messed up, the pilling, etc.. I was so nervous! But after using COLD WATER w a LOW TUMBLE dry... the bed is SO FLUFFY and looks even better than when I first opened it!!! So 5 stars for quality. I had my doubts, but I now highly recommend this bed.
I ordered this and when it arrived it had a hole in the interior lining where it had torn open. No biggie - it's for my dogs so I thought I'd just stitch it up a bit since they're likely to destroy it anyway. I set it down in my room and went to get something - came back and my cat, who hates every cat bed I've ever bought her with the exception of a self warming heating pad I bought recently, has curled up on this thing and is living her best life. So I guess now it's her bed. I ordered another one for the dogs and it arrived in perfect condition - they love it! I'd say it's worth it knowing how easy it is to return things on Amazon. Worse case you send it back for a new one. It doesn't have any odor that I noticed and it's so soft my cat doesn't want to get out of it.
My cats love this bed and occasionally fight for it. It took them a little while at first to start using it, but now it's been going strong for 8-ish months.
One cat really likes to knead in it because it's soft and squishy, and the other likes to lick it because ??? Maybe the texture just really reminds her of fur? Really I have no idea. It's kind of gross. But both cats obviously really like the bed.
I've only spot cleaned it so far, no washer/dryer trips yet so I can't speak to how well it holds up in that regard. But the included photos are of the bed when we first got it, a few months ago, and last night. Can you tell which is which? The bed has kept it's form remarkably well through daily use, kneading, and frequently licking.
P.S. the picture showing both cats is from when we first got it and the picture of the white cat curled up in the bed is of last night. Impressive, right?
Using this bed for two kittens (while they are young). It looks more comfortable than most of the old-fashioned beds we used to buy. I don't like the way the bed is packaged for shipping: it is vacuum packed into a very very small pouch with as much air as possible sucked out. I'm sure it has been stored that way for quite a while before shipping. After it is unpacked, the stuffing is supposed to re-inflate to its original size, but that doesn't actually happen 100%. I'd say the one I have reinflated to about 75% after a few weeks, some permanent damage is done by the vacuum packing. How much damage is done depends on how long it is stored in that state, and how much summer heat it is exposed to during storage and shipping. Other products I have ordered only reinflated to about 50%. I would rather pay a bit more for shipping in a larger more protective container (box, rather than a bag) and have the product arrive in better condition.
I bought this as a birthday gift for my cat and to replace her old bed. I chose it for the fluff (it looked really soft) and appearance. My cat switched from her old bed to this one immediately and never looked back. It goes much better with my decor. My kitty is pretty big (17 pounds) and I am very glad I got the larger size. She sometimes curls up and sometimes like to stretch out and this size allows for both.
We've had it a week and it is already not as visibly puffy. I have not washed it yet so I can't report about that and I wonder if it would puff back up. For the price, look and the way kitty immediately loved it (she was in it within 5 minutes) I am happy.
UPDATE: We have had the bed for about a month. Kitty had a hairball and had an accident in the bed. I used a paper towel to remove what I could and threw it in the wash on gentle. I have an ancient washing machine with the agitator in the middle. It washed just fine, but still needed to be spot treated after it came out before it could go in the dryer (low heat). I think it was just too large and puffy for my machine to handle well and makes me think that I should wash it here and there before it gets to the point of actually looking dirty. Also, I shake it out real well once a week when I am cleaning and that puffs it up some. Kitty is happy!
