Could someone recommend a good dog bed?  We have a 6 month-old yellow lab,
she is already about 65lbs and is still growing.  I don't want to spend too
much but want a quality dog bed.  Thanks.

Buy one from LLBEAN I have always bought mine there and if there is ever
a problem they will replace it.
We have way to many in our house. All of them are green canvas with the
dogs name on them.
and believe it or not........each dog goes to his or her bed or there is
TROUBLE....

How about YOUR bed?!  My German Shorthaired Pointers always end up on my
bed anyway, so I didn't have to spend anything extra on their sleeping
accommodations.  :-)

My sister's yellow Lab agrees that a human bed is infinitely preferable
to a doggie bed.

We got our Lab a bed out of RC Steele (I think it was about $60) and he does
not sleep on it.  I guess he would if I forced him to but I really dont
care all that much.  He
prefers to sleep under our bed.  I really dont know how he gets his
24.5in 75lb frame under there but that is where he prefers to sleep.  Our
dog is not allowed on the human bed.  How does one find out if their dog
wants a bed before spending money on it?????

Well that goes with out saying.
The girls are either on the couch,wingchairs, or human beds.
but....OL WHISTLER waddles from room to room and he expect a bed in each
room to flop.
and...the girls want their beds at least when we are in the kitchen,as
they would never let me go to the kitchen unattended!!

I do so hope you accommodate him.

Heaven forbid!  :-D  My boys love to help out in the kitchen; you'd
think they were trained at the Ritz-Escoffier, they're so interested.  I
swear they can hear a fridge open at 100 paces.

*g* well, just like a child, a dog should have a bed of its own whether
it wants one or not. (IMHO heheh)

How does one find out if their dog
wants a bed before spending money on it?????

However the cat loves it!

I have a lab and a dalmatian...and I bought him a little bed..but he doesn't
fit in it anymore...the best bed is if you make a huge pillow so they could
sleep on it.   Or you could buy one but it's really expensive.

Here's what I've done for my three.  The two girls sleep together under
the bed (it's a tall bed with enough clearance) and my boy still sleeps
in his station-wagon-sized wire crate.  Instead of forking out tons of
$$s on these pre-made bed, I went to Target and spent $6.59 on that
ergonomic (egg-carton) foam - twin-bed size.  I took that, folded it in
half with the bubbles out, and duct-taped it. I took an old blanket and
wrapped it around the foam, safety-pinning it tight on the underside.
This way you can remove and wash the blanket.

Total cost: $6.59 plus some safety-pins and a few minutes of your time.  
All 3 dogs love their beds. The girls used to sleep on the human bed all
the time (day and night); even unmake the bed during the day. With the
new bed in place, we've had no *** visitors in the middle of the night
for over a year!

Will,

We have a Border Collie working dog, and at the end of a long day on the
sheep, he loves stretching out and curling up inside his 'DOGLOO'.  We also
have a Basset Hound and after a long day sunbaking he also likes to stretch
out in his 'DOGLOO'!!!.  It is a plastic kennel found at most reputable pet
shops.  It can be hosed out regularly and has a ventilation window in it for
summer.  Fleas don't live in plastic.  The Dogloo is meant to refer to an
Igloo, but it sounds more like a dunnyloo!!
Anyway in Australia - Victoria, the Dogloo costs about $160.00 - $200.00
depending on the size.  Good luck.

PS I work in Aged Care, I am not trying to sell you this for business, I
just think they are really practical kennels

Brooklyn, the 7.5-month-old Labrador loves his cedar-stuffed imitation fleece
bed which we bought from Costco/Price Club for $17.00.  It's durable, washable
(the outer cover) and at that price, not too steep an investment if your Lab
hates it (which I doubt he will).
