My two Deer Chihuahuas love their new bed took to them right away. We had bought them the expensive fuzzy beds but had a problem with them. The doggies could not lick their paws or a treat without some of the fur in string form was found in their mouths. This could get in their intestines and create a life-or-death situation. It took a while but, I was so happy to find the Jax & Bones bed. The fabric is smooth like a very soft suede. I also needed them to be washable and that looks to be easy. One interesting note, they use to pounce up and down on the old bed to make it more comfortable. Now, they get in their Jax & Bones bed, do a chihuahua circle and collapse. I wish I had a Jax &m Bones bed, too!
