Tired of finding your naughty dog or cat starfishing in the middle of your bed, or fighting with you for the blanket? Gain your sovereignty back – let us help you find the best dog beds so your furry friend/friends can have a safe, clean, and comfy place to rest, and stop taking yours.
Here’s a review of the 10 best dog beds to buy in 2019, based on thousands of customer reviews, manufacturer’s information, as well as our personal experience in the matter.
Let’s get started!
An affordable orthopedic bed that has quality and also looks fashionable – that’s what this BarksBar is.
Material for ultra support
With a human-grade solid orthopedic foam base, the BarksBar provides pressure relief on your dog’ joints as she cuddles up in the bed. It’s comforting even for the injured or senior dogs.
The soft lowly raised cotton bolsters offer support for your dog’s neck when she’s tired, or when she needs to show off her contemplative face. They contour to give her a hug from the back, and create a feel of protection as she digs her nose under it. The ultra soft polyester cover, meanwhile, gives even the least furry dogs a nice caress.
Easy cleaning and maintenance
The cover is washing-machine friendly. With polyester being the main material, it is smooth and very easy to vacuum or spot clean. Picking the hair is a walk in the park: simply roll your sticky picker over the surface and it’ll be good to go.
- Supportive orthopedic foam
- Anti-slip base
- Soft cotton walls to offer neck support
- Smooth surface, easy to clean and pick hair
- Comes in medium and big size
- Sides can be too flimsy for large dogs
Many cats have approved it, so we figured dogs would love it too. And we were right!
A cozy little nest
Coming in the form of a nest with a raised walls and short fluffy faux fur inside, this bed is every pup’s dream. It’s available in small and medium size, so if you have a large husky or a golden retriever, it won’t fit for them when they hit puberty. But if yours is a bag baby or a young pup, they surely are gonna claim it theirs the moment they see it!
Made for small dogs who have quite a lot of time to learn the importance of a calm manner and good dental care, the cover of this Hachikitty bed is highly durable against chewing. It’s made of 300D waterproof oxford fabric, ensuring your pup will always have a warm, dry place to sleep.
The cover is easily detachable with visible zippers. It has fur on the surface, so a sticky cleaner is not applicable, but you can throw it into the washing machine for a deep clean when needed.
- Comfy, soft, warm
- Anti slip
- Waterproof cover
- Machine washable
- Not available in large sizes
- Product is not as firm as in pics
Full of faux fur both inside and outside, this is a bed your dog won’t be able to resist.
It’s soft all the way
With rather long fur covering both the inside and the raised walls, this bed is self warming and can’t be any softer to the touch. It’s perfect for your pup to bury its face under the rims too if that’s what it likes to do. I never tried, but sleeping in this bed must feel like sleeping on a large stuffed bear!
With long fur, the bed probably more ideal for lighter, smaller dogs than a Great Dane. Nevertheless, it comes in 4 different sizes to accommodate both large dogs and small pups. The colors are pretty neutral and would blend in naturally with any style of room decors.
Washing machine and dryer friendly
The cover is safe on a gentle cycle, and in my experience, a fabric softener would help a great deal with the fur (just don’t pick ones with strong smells – your dog’s sense of smell is most likely thousands of times better than yours!). It should be dried in a dryer only to avoid matting. If you don’t have one, you may have to send it to a laundry shop.
- Soft, cozy
- Comes in 4 different sizes
- Detachable cover that can be machine washed
- May attract dust
- Difficult to clean
- Not suitable for large dogs
Your dog may not necessarily desire a career on the runway, but he/she sure will like this fashionable bed nevertheless.
High walls for a good snuggle
Because what offers more security for a dog than a snuggle between thick walls with soft, comfy fur for the cover? The extra high (12”) back wall, which is super flexi, makes sure your tall dog won’t get uncomfortable while attempting a stretch. It also provides more space for when the pets feel like cuddling with each other in one bed.
A stylish design
This bed looks like a small version of a winter reading chair, and would blend in alright with other furnitures in any room in your house. Don’t even bother worrying about the color – you surely will find a good one among its 16 available colors.
I didn’t have the chance to confirm this – it would probably take a years-long test, but the manufacturer claims it’s made made of premium pet-safe materials. The bed is stuffed with antibacterial virgin AirLOFT fiber, which can facilitate air flow and provide lightweight shape support.
- High walls for neck and back support
- Quality antibacterial stuffing
- Fashionable design
- Comes in 16 colors
- Can wash in washing machine
- Small and medium dogs (up to 35 lbs) only
It may look basic, but this FurHaven is one of the best gifts you can get for your furry loved ones.
A straightforward design
Without the raised rims usually seen on other beds, this bed may not be the ideal place for your four legged companion who likes burying their nose before they sleep. It is, however, perfect for very young or very senior dogs, or those suffering from injury or mobility problem. They can literally get to it and fall on it for a nap. There are raises at the top and the bottom of the bed for a chin rest.
Medical grade foam
The dense but soft foam that offers excellent support to your dog’s bones and joints are also CertiPUR-US-certified for its content, emissions, and durability. It is free of lead, mercury, other heavy metals, or PDBW flame retardants. It is comfortable, safe, and at the same time, very affordable for all of this.
It’s clean & neat
The faux fur cover of this FurHaven bed offers the balance between comfort and convenience: it is long enough to give that warm, soft, fuzzy feel, but short enough to ease the cleaning.
- Medical grade orthopedic foam
- Easy to clean (machine washable)
- Non-VOC materials
- Multiple sizes
- No bolsters
This Friends Forever bed is a win for dogs and masters whose tastes lean to the pragmatic side.
The Ultimate Dog Lounge/Sofa
It has raised curved walls that give your canine friends support on their necks and around the back, and providing them the security they need during their sleep. On the other hand, one wall is omitted, leaving space for long-legged individuals or those who don’t like the smell of their own feet.
Not that a chihuahua can’t sleep in this bed – it’s made with human-grade foam to provide the best support for even the most fragile dogs. There will be some spare space though, as this bed is designed for buddies to cuddle up together. Two or three small dogs, or one as large as 75lbs can fit in it.
A Bed for the Hygiene-Aware
Without fur on the inside, the bed is less prone to dust and parasite problems, and thus require less cleaning. And when it does, it is a walk in the park, as is picking up hair or dust. The cover is removable for machine wash.
- Sofa design with raised walls
- Easy to clean
- Accommodates large dogs
- Quality foam
- Not ideal for single small dogs
Big Barker has long been at the forefront of quality, and this bed with a 10 year guarantee is one of the best options available from the brand.
Super durable foam
Have you ever had a bed that feels comfy at first, but eventually loses its shape and pancakes after a couple of years? The same thing happens to low-quality dog beds.
That won’t be a problem on the Barker Junior, though. It consists of 2 layers of foam – the lower for weight support and the upper for comfort with premier American Max 7 foam.
The bed comes with a 10-year guarantee: 90% of the original shape and loft will be retained after 10 years, or you will get your refund.
Safety a priority
Not only is it made with quality foam, but the bed is also bacteria resistant, and free of common allergy-triggering as well as toxic substances. The cover, which is machine washable, is crafted with 100% microfiber, making it ultra fine, soft, and piling resistant.
A work of handcraft
If you’re still wondering why the bed comes with a slightly higher price, part of the answer is that it’s not mass-produced. Each single bed is the result of long hours of manual work by experienced craftsmen from a workshop in California.
- Premium orthopedic double foam
- Easily washable cover
- 10 year guarantee for foam
- Not suitable for large dogs
Called and looking ”Luxury”, but this orthopedic bed does not require as deep a pocket as it may sound. Thankfully, that doesn’t mean a sub-quality product.
2 layers of quality foam
With one dense, firm layer of foam for weight support to make sure your baby never sinks to the floor, and a softer layer that conforms to the doggo’s shape to ease pressure, the bed promises to give your furry friend good deep sleeps.
What sets this bed apart from many others on the market is that it comes with a waterproof liner. While seemingly a simple feature, this liner is extremely useful when it comes to protecting the bed from an accidental water spill or an un-potty-trained pup. It also keeps the mats from moist weather, and potentially, mold and parasites.
The bed cover is, similar to the high-end Barker Junior bed, made of microfiber for ultra softness. It is removable and can be washed manually or using a washing machine.
- Double-layer foam mattress
- Waterproof liner
- Sofa design with raised walls
- Can be machine washed
- Limited color choices
It’s no Hastens in quality, as reflected by the price. Nevertheless, this Brindle bed makes you feel like you really get a lot more than what you pay for.
A simple, pragmatic design
One of the simplest dog beds out there – it’s basically a mattress with a cover, no bolsters, no folds. That makes it less ideal for pups that want the warmth and security of raised walls, but it also means more space for a long legged, confident dog. It’s also less prone to dust, parasites, and hair problems, and is super easy to clean.
Coming in 7 sizes
This mattress can be a good bed for the smallest dogs like Chihuahuas, or dogs as big as Great Danes. If you have a pig or a goat, it will probably also fit into the biggest size.
Made of soft shredded foam, the bed allows easy air flows through it. It’s easy on old dogs, or those with joint pain or injuries. Note, however, that this type of foam can lose its shape over time.
- Easy to clean and wash
- Soft shredded foam
- Available in various sizes
- Easy to lose shape after a few years
Another mattress-type dog bed that will give your dog the comfort it deserves without bleeding your wallet.
4 inches of foam for support and comfort
The inside of this mattress consists of 2 layers of dense foam. The lower polyurethane layer is firm, and made to give support to your dog. It helps make sure even the weak or injured pup can stand up easily from the bed.
The upper layer of foam is softer and designed to contour to the dog’s body, thus reducing the pressure on its joints. Both layers are CertiPUR-US-certified to contain only safe materials.
A waterproof cover
Coated with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), the cover can protect the foam from water spillings or your sick/young dog’s urine. In the case you or your dog have high standards of hygiene and wash it often, you can also get additional covers separately on Amazon.
Thanks to the extremely short fur on the cover surface, the bed feels fine and comfy to the touch, but not a pain to clean. Sticky rolls works fine for hair, but the better way would be to pick it up and slightly pat over the surface for dust and hair to fall out. The cover is detachable for scheduled washing in the machine.
- Simple, neat, easy to clean
- Double layered foam
- Multiple sizes available
- No bolsters
