Best Dog Bed?

I've been looking in pet stores and shops to find two dog beds. I wanted a simple thin fleece type for the inside of our puppy crate. That was easy to find.

I'm still looking for a nice, big (adult golden) sized dog bed. I'm hoping to find one that either has a removable cover for washing or to find one that has a surface that can be wiped clean in case of accidents/vomit/mud. Does anyone have any suggestions? I saw one online that reminded me of nylon for easy cleaning but can't seem to find it. Any other suggestions would be great too!!

check out the Kuranda beds. My guy is only 9 weeks and he's already loving his bed. Seriously, he'll get his toys and romp over and get on his bed to rest and/or play.

Later in his life it'll be good for him b/c it is raised and will get his body, bones and joints off the floor.

We got ours from www.drsfostersmith.com "classic dog bed". Marty would rather lay on our dirty clothes, but our 2 previous dogs loved their beds and they come in a variety of sizes/colors.

Wow- I love the Dr. Foster's Classic Bed. Very nice.

I've never known anyone that used the Kuranda beds so I'm glad that the dogs do infact like them!

Costco has nice dog beds with removable covers that can be machine washed. They're nice and cheap too for the big size beds that are normally very expensive elsewhere.

We have beds from LL Bean and they last forever. They have the removable covers that can be taken off to be washed and they wear very well. They're also guaranteed for life. Our dogs love them.

Cabela's has some indoor/outdoor dog beds made of patio fabric. Can be hosed off or thrown in the wash.

I received the LLBean catalog in the mail last week and I really liked the beds. I didn't realize that they have a guarantee. What is the guarantee for? I'm sure it isn't like Lupine's collar guaranteed against chewing, is it? Just curious. I have a free shipping code good 'til July.
