If there’s one thing dog owners love more than their dogs, it’s spoiling them whenever possible. And one of the most important ways to do that is by getting a really nice dog bed.
Sure, you could let your dog sleep on the floor or the couch but providing a safe and cushioned place for your pup is just as critical as it is for you to sleep in a bed. Plus, making sure they’ve got the proper cushion and support, especially as they age, is absolutely critical.
With all this in mind, we’ve found 10 of the best dog beds on the market to ensure your dog has the best bed available. Here are our favorites from lounge beds for aging dogs to big splurges and even easy to travel with beds.
1. Casper Plush Memory Foam Dog Bed
With three different sizes, four different colors, plenty of stability, and exceeding levels of comfort, Casper’s Plush Memory Foam Dog Bed is easily our pick for the best overall dog bed. It starts with pressure-relieving and durable support memory foam that creates a texture that cushions your pup as they rest. A supportive topper allows for extra support if they like to paw or dig at any point. Additionally, foam bolsters make for a safe space for head resting. And, naturally, the cover is totally removable if it needs to be washed. It’s the same level of luxury you’d expect for your own mattress — just for your dog instead.
2. MidWest Homes for Pets Plush Dog Bed
Whether you’ve got a dog that loves to chew through things or you need a starter bed for your puppy until you can upgrade when they get bigger, this dog bed from MidWest Homes for Pets is a fantastic value option. Under $30, you won’t feel too bad if Fido literally tears it a new one. But just because it’s cheap doesn’t mean it’s cheaply made, as its non-skid bottom provides a good grip on your floor while the plush bed coddles your pup nicely.
3. Big Barker Orthopedic Dog Bed
BEST FOR OLDER DOGS
The older dogs get, the more help and support they’ll need. This is why investing in this orthopedic dog bed from Big Barker can make a huge difference. We’re not talking about marketing fluff here, as a study from the University of Pennsylvania showed less pain and more mobility from those dogs who used a Big Barker dog bed. While the bed is meant for larger breeds, it’ll still be just as helpful for smaller dogs too.
4. FAREYY Dog Bed
BEST FOR SMALL DOGS
While FAREYY’s dog bed offerings come in a variety of different sizes, we love their bed for smaller breeds the best. The soft, plush surface provides cushioned comfort, while the wraparound, raised rim gives a feeling of safety and security for your dog. Bolsters also provide support for neck, back, and hips. Most importantly, the cover is totally removable to be washed should you need to do so. And, at 32″ x 24″, it’ll snug your smaller pup almost as well as you do.
5. Best Friends by Sheri Donut Cuddler Dog Bed
BEST FOR MEDIUM-SIZED DOGS
With its shaggy fabric and rounded design, this dog bed from Best Friends by Sheri is sized at 30″ by 30″ which makes it a great fit for more medium-sized dogs. The shag fabric is more than just for show, as it is meant to mimic a mother’s fur and help lull your dog into a deeper sleep than other beds. While it’s hard to tell in the photo, the slightly raised edges provide not only a sense of security but also give neck and head support while your dog is sleeping.
6. Friends Forever Lounge Dog Bed
BEST FOR LARGE DOGS
Sized at 44″ by 34″, the Friends Forever Lounge Dog Bed lives up to its name by providing a luxurious amount of room for even large dogs. Made with a plush, poly-fill bolster and mattress foam, your big guy or girl will feel like they’re resting on a cloud. Plus, the softcover is removable to make cleaning a breeze while also being anti-tear too.
7. Yeti Trailhead Two-in-One Dog Bed
Looking to really spoil your dog? Yeti’s Trailhead Two-in-One dog bed should be your first and last stop. As evidenced by its name, it’s actually two different beds; the bottom portion is more of a “home base” that includes a sturdy base crafted from EVA foam and provides extra cushion for big dogs. The middle is a removable travel pad that’s easy to roll and take on the go thanks to its high-density foam core. It’s just the kind of luxury spin on a well-established classic we’d expect from the brand.
8. Kurgo Portable Dog Bed
BEST TRAVEL DOG BED
With its included handle, waterproof top and bottom, and easy ability to roll up, this Kurgo Portable Dog Bed is the choice for outdoor adventures. The bed is made from a quilted (and yes, waterproof!) ripstop fabric that’s also durable for the outdoors’ ruggedness. Additionally, the rufftex bottom makes it so the bed won’t slip while you’re driving. And the entire bed not only rolls into itself for easy carrying but can also be machine washed.
9. K&H Pet Products Dog Cot
If you’d prefer to elevate your dog bed experience, this cot-style option from K&H does more than just raising the bar. The lifted bed allows your pet to stay cooler in warmer months since the base is made from a breathable mesh for better airflow. Additionally, the bed can hold up to 200 pounds and is waterproof to boot. However, cleaning isn’t quite as simple as sending it through the wash, but you can hose it off rather easily.
10. Pendleton Grand Canyon National Park Pillow Dog Bed
Pendleton’s designs are just incredible. There’s really no other word for it. The timeless bits of Americana they work into their clothing (or in this case, dog beds) feels like a throwback to the days of old west towns. And while things are certainly better now, that doesn’t mean you can’t bring a bit of that inspiration home. With four different sized beds, plush polar fleece for comfort, and a washable cover, your pup will both look and feel great when lounging on this bed.
