10 best dog beds to help your pup snooze in comfort and style
Sleeping with your dog (or dogs) in bed is a great way to feel close to them...until it’s two hours before the alarm clock goes off and a paw jabs you in the face for the fourth time that night. And even if your pups are polite sleepers, there are times when they just need to have a space of their own to lie down, stretch out, curl up, and nap the day away.
We looked at some of the top-rated and highest selling pet beds on the market to determine which look like the best deal while being the most comforting, most durable, and sometimes just plain cutest options ready to house your furry family. Whether your dog is older and needs the support of an orthopedic sleeper or they just want to feel snuggled at all times, keep reading to find an adorable option for your home.
As always, you can trust our independent reviews. We may earn a commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world testing, expert advice and our own research. This revenue helps to fund journalism across The Independent.
Enchanted Home Pet Quicksilver Sofa Cat & Dog Bed w/Removable Cover, Medium, Silver

It holds up to 30 pounds of weight which is great for one to three small pups, and two inches of space between the floor and bed make it harder for any territory markers to leave a hard-to-clean mess on the corners.

The Casper Dog Bed
Casper Sleep is known for making mattresses for two-legged creatures, but they’ve got your furry friends in mind when creating reliable sleep surfaces, too. As one glowing review reports:
“I’ve never met a dog that didn’t like a Casper bed. We got this bed for our spoiled 12 week old Pomeranian. She liked playing in this bed more than sleeping in it but that was because when we first got her she was 3.5 pounds and a tiny nugget. Now that she’s 11 months old and close to 10 pounds, she LOVES sleeping in her casper bed. It is made of the best materials to support Sachi’s tiny body and fragile joints. Again, Casper knocks it out of the park with thoughtful construction, ease of washing, and just good, clean design. I’m a fan and so is my dog! Worth every freaking penny.”
