11 of the Greatest Dog Beds in the History of Dog Beds

11 of the Greatest Dog Beds in the History of Dog Beds

Having a comfy bed you cant wait to crawl into every night isn’t just one of life’s little pleasures – it’s a total necessity! As we all know (but sometimes forget when purchasing the cheapest mattress Ikea has to offer), we spend a lot of our life in bed. And not just asleep – it’s where many of us watch movies, read books, work on our computers, etc. So when you think about it, if there’s one thing you’re going to splurge on in your house, your mattress should definitely be at the top of that list.

This same logic applies to our animals, who also spend a chunk of their time lounging in bed. More time than us, actually. And while your pup will likely be grateful for any bed you can scrounge up (sometimes a dirty pile of laundry works too!), it’s nice to provide them with something extra cozy to snuggle in at night, while you’re at work, or just whenever they dang well please. Must be nice!

We set out to scour the internet in search of the best and most popular dog beds available, and kept our list at beds you can easily order online no matter where you reside. We’d be remiss if we didn’t include some environmentally friendly ideas for keeping our furry friends in line with mother nature, though we will be back later with a full rundown of eco-friendly + handmade picks.

Psst: looking for tips on what kind of bed your dog may love? Check out a neat and helpful guide from Drs. Foster and Smith.

11. Petmate Microban Pet Bed

This 27″ x 36″ deluxe pillow bed with gusset features microban antimicrobial product protection. The gorgeous bed also has a chenille stripe top & bottom with plush terry top and zippered removable cover, making it machine washable. Reviews deem it to be a great bed, unless your pup is a chewer, in which case it may look like candy! For another similar option, we love Midwest‘s ombre swirl fur pet bed.

10. AKC Casablanca Round Solid Pet Bed

Created by the American Kennel Club, this round bed is 100% polyester and machine washable. The soft and cozy bed comes in six colors and – at $19 – reviewers call it the best bang for your buck, pet bed-wise. We’ll let the reviews do the talking: “I got the 22×6”, and I have a terrier mix around 15lbs. As soon as I pulled it out of the box, he started doing his “beg” trick for it. It’s the perfect size for him (he can completely die down within the raised sides without curling up too much), and he especially loves to burrow his head into the walls. It’s very plush and soft, but it also seems really durable (our puppy’s a chewer, and it’s holding up so far). I also like it because even though there’s no removable cover or center pillow the entire thing is small enough to fit into our apartment’s washing machines (the label also says its machine washable and can be machine dried on low setting). For ~$13 this was a great deal. Would recommend and will buy again if necessary.”

9. Midwest Quiet Time Pet Bed

The coils inside offer support for your older dog who may be having joint problems, and the layers of foam and fleece offer comfort that you may end up being jealous of! The coils will also help the bed keep its shape and the fleece cover will keep your dog warm and snuggled up on winter nights.
