Ever since I received my first dog catalog from Orvis, I thumb through each page admiring all of the products they offer for dogs. The list of products I want for my dog from Orvis is almost endless; however, the one thing that has always caught my eye is their selection of dog beds. They looked great in the catalog pictures, and every dog that was photographed seemed to be quite comfortable. But what always made me hesitate was the price tag for the beds. In the past, we spent about $50 on a dog bed, nervous that Jordy would either chew it up or if he didn’t like it, at least we did not invest too much money in it. The large size bed runs around $300 before tax for the bolster memory foam version.
Right before Christmas this year, my husband and I found out we were expecting our first child. With this news, I decided it was finally worth it to invest in the Orvis memory foam dog bed for Jordy. This way, he would have his own space to call home after the baby makes his or her appearance. The opinions in this post are purely my own, and also what I could imagine Jordy thinks of his new bed.
I cannot say enough about how comfortable this bed is. My husband and I have both joked that we would easily sleep in Jordy’s bed with how comfortable it is. Jordy tends to be a bit unsure with new items, but once we had him sit in the bed, he curled right up and laid there the rest of the night. And since we do allow Jordy on our couches, it says a lot when he chose his new bed over joining us on the couch.
I would be happy to have this dog bed in any room of my house. The bed has a very clean look, and there are multiple fabric and color options to coordinate with existing furniture. It also kept its shape well after packaging and shipping, and Jordy running all over it. At the time of purchase, Orvis was also running a free personalization deal. I love that Jordy’s bed has his name on it.
size & Shape Options
Jordy is about 80 lbs. and the large fits him perfectly. He has room to stretch out but is still easily able to snuggle into the side bolsters. On the Orvis website, the bed sizes have associated dog weights listed next to them. If your dog is at the heavier end of the weight range, it may be worthwhile to size up. Orvis also offers multiple shapes of their dog beds. We bought the bolster bed based on how Jordy typically likes to sleep. The Orvis website contains a link under the dog bed menu that will help you identify which bed to choose, based on how your dog likes to sleep or lay down.
I felt completely comfortable having Jordy lay on his bed directly out of the box. The memory foam is made without formaldehyde, phthalates, or heavy metals, which I appreciate for our entire family. Another great bonus is that they use recycled materials! Approximately 114 plastic water bottles go into making each bed. Knowing this made me much happier about the purchase.
Need I say more! Even if your dog is completely housebroken, accidents can still happen, especially as your dog ages. Having a washable cover is an excellent feature for having this bed be an investment for the entire lifespan of your pup.
The only downside I have found with the bed is the price tag. It is probably a bit more than you may want to spend on a dog bed, but from my experience, the investment was worth it. However, in my opinion, no matter how great a product is, it is not worth breaking your budget. So the budget part is up to you, but hopefully, this review helped give you more information with which to make your decision.
