I have purchased dog bed and have spent $100 for them to $20 dollars for them. This bed for the price I paid is worth a lot more. It have a cover that I think is durable. My lab is 13 years old and needs a firm bed to sleep on. She will choose this one over the $100 one that I bought a few months ago. I have not washed it yet, but hopefully the zipper will last. The material is not cheap so I have hope it will last few years. Happy with my purchase at this price.
