[Review] The Dog Bed King Cuddler Review
The Dog Bed King USA dog bed comes in four different styles: 20 inch, 27 inch, 33 inch and 42 inch lengths and in tan, black, navy blue, green, burgundy and brown colors.
The interior is made of an imitation lambs wool and there is an elastic seam located on the bottom of the dog bed so that you can easily remove the cover and throw it in your washing machine on cold to clean it up.
The variety of sizes enables you to find the best fitting option no matter whether you own a Jack Russell Terrier, a Golden Retriever, or something larger like an American Bulldog.
Remember to measure your dog prior to purchase- or use a handy online sizing calculator.
Unfortunately, users are not huge fans of this particular dog bed-they say that while it is USA-made and all of the stock photos make it look really attractive, they say that the foam padding is cheap and doesn't hold its shape over time.
While the manufacturers advertise it as a style of orthopedic foam, in reality users complained that it is actually egg-carton shaped foam and the cover is difficult to stretch over it and to zip off of it because the foam bunches up and tears generally after about 30 days of use.
Another user was similarly unimpressed with the from padding and added that the side bolsters did not provide adequate support for their pets- they had to return it because it just wasn't up to their standards.
On the other hand, more recent reviewers are a little perplexed by the negative response this dog bed has received- they say that they purchased two of them for their Chocolate Labrador. They placed one in the living room and one in their master bedroom, saying that their elderly Retriever requires the extra comfort that this bed provides.
In all, it would seem that this dog bed is a bit hit or miss.

CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS
Dog Bed King’s exterior is made from black Canvas 600 Denier fabric, similar to the fabric that back packs or duffle bags are made from. The interior is a soft cream colored imitation lambswool.
The bed has a curved cut entry for easy access for the dog. It has a solid 1 1/4” thick high density foam around the edges and 2” thick foam base in the bottom for cushioning. The sides are firm enough to support the dog’s chin and jowls on it. Maybe not very firm to support a big dog’s head hanging out 100%, since they are narrow and not very tall, but this will depend on the dog’s weight.
The pet bed has a removable cover for easy washing. The cover has elastic hem around for easy removal and put back on.
The base of the bed is covered with a strong black fabric that is glued to the bottom to avoid pets from chewing and getting to the foam bottom.
Dog Bed King offers replaceable covers of different colors for you to change the look of your dog’s bed.
It’s important to mention that this particular XL size is very big, even a dog over 100 lbs can use it with no problem.
Check carefully the dimensions before making any decision. If you want your big dog to curl up when sleeping and not very much room left, you may want to get the smaller size.
