I'll start off saying of the 2 dogs I have the male will use this. The female doesn't seem to want to use it. It is nice that it is slip-resistant on the underside, because of this I think it'll be very durable and last a good while before needing to replace it. It will be very easy to clean, just pour some water on it or use a hose and spray some water on it. It is a great purchase.
