The bed is not as robust as I expected it to be. It is lightweight and flimsy. The padding is not as stiff as I would like. That's the trouble with ordering on the internet and not seeing the product! The bed is waterproof and has 2 fleece covers. The covers attract the dog hairs and so look a mess immediately. The cover can't be hoovered as too loose and gets sucked up. I now use the bed without the supplied covers and put towels on top of it.Would not recommend it.
