Broken Zipper Early On

Reviewed by Big Dog Family from California on Monday, January 27, 2014
I bought two of these large beds for our smaller mutts before deciding to get the jumbo ones for our two others, Bernese Mtn Dog puppies (10 months old). We were happy with the first two and they seemed pretty durable so I went ahead and ordered the other two for Christmas. I knew I was taking a chance since the male puppy likes to chew and, sure enough, the first night he had five holes in the cover. I told him that it was a bad thing and sewed them up (thankfully, they were all small). We've had no more holes but last night when they climbed into bed, I noticed that his zipper had split. I tried to back it up and re-zip but it looks like the teeth are messed up. Probably another meeting with puppy teeth. Disappointing since the beds aren't even a month old. I'm trying to decide whether to sew on some Velcro or order another cover. Yes, as others have said, the filling is a little week but, all-in-all, the dogs are happy with them. I guess, short of Kevlar, they are as strong a bed as I'll find. Oh well, I wanted big dogs!
