Chew proof warranty

Another thing we love about this giant dog bed is that it comes with a 1 year chew proof warranty, which means this bed has a longer warranty than any other dog bed on this list. If your furry friend is able to damage any piece of the frame or fabric beyond usability within the first year, Kuranda will ship you a replacement for free.


Light weight

Easy to clean

The vinyl fabric of the base makes cleaning this bed extremely easily. Just hose it off or scrub it with a sponge and the bed will be good to go!
