Since there is no shortage of dog beds for sale on Amazon, finding the right dog bed for your pet can be a time-consuming task. There are so many different styles to choose from, and, like humans, every dog has his own unique set of preferences and needs when it comes to the type of dog bed that would work best.
Fortunately for busy pet owners, we’ve narrowed down the best dog beds on Amazon for every category, after spending some time scouring the shopping site. All our picks boast stellar reviews and at least a 4-star average rating, making them truly the best dog beds on Amazon (we even tried out our top pick below on a handful of willing volunteers).
And because price is often an important consideration for pet owners, we’ve also made sure to include a few quality but budget-friendly dog beds, since you shouldn’t have to spend a lot to find a basic bed that works well for your dog’s needs.
So, to see the very best dog beds on Amazon, scroll down for our ten best picks below.
1. Best For Serious Snoozers: The Orvis National Park Dog Bed (Verified Review)
This bed proved to be a big hit with our tester’s pet family—a senior beagle and two full-figured cats—who you can see like to take turns using it.
Available in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes, we tested the medium, which out of the box looked on the large side but soon proved to be just the right size for the constant parade of pets getting cozy on it and trying it out. (This jives with the bed’s sizing chart that suggests ordering a size up based on your dog’s size; if your dog is “small,” order a “medium,” etc.)
Like the best pet beds, it comes with a removable cover which is made of—not wool, as one might first think, this being Pendleton—but a sturdy, machine-washable polyester fleece with heavy-duty stitching, seams, and a smooth-gliding zipper closure. After a few days of constant use (and a few hissy fits), the bed became covered with pet hair and dirt, but stood up well to a few heavy vacuuming sessions. The patterning is oh-so-Pendleton (part of the company’s National Park pet bed series, the design pictured here is “Badlands”) and won’t cramp your home’s style (in fact, it just might enhance it).
The bed itself, manufactured by Orvis, is like a medium-firm pillow (the company describes the filling to be a “plush memory fiber material”) that the animals immediately sink into, and more often than not, drift off directly into dreamland.
2. Best Elevated Bed: The Original Elevated Pet Bed by Coolaroo (Verified Review)
Because it’s so lightweight and easy-to-clean, this versatile Coolaroo dog bed is great for both indoor and outdoor use. It boasts powder-coated steel frame and breathable high density polyethylene fabric that keeps dogs cool and off the ground. While there’s no soft cushioning like with other dog beds, its 7-inch elevated platform design helps relieve pressure points and promotes more restful sleep.
Available sizes: Small, Medium, and Large
Verified review: “The metal looked high quality, and I really liked the color it came in. I like that this bed allows my dog a spot to chew or lay on without being directly on the grass. The dogs were all interested in it, and my Boston terrier uses it as her default place to chew on her bone. It’s still holding up well through wind, heavy rain, and direct sunshine—and it’s small enough to store away for the winter.”Buy Now on Amazon
For dogs who love to burrow, this FurHaven dog bed is a fantastic option and comes in eight different colors and four sizes. It has an orthopedic foam base and a snuggly (and washable!) fleece or velvet cover with a hood that stands up on its own to give the bed its cave effect. The plastic tubing that keeps the hood standing upright can also be removed in order to transform the top of the bed into more of a blanket.
Available sizes: 18, 26, 35, and 44-Inches
Helpful Review: “My Bully absolutely loves this bed. I didn’t think he’d figure out how to snuggle under the cover, but he did and never wants to come out. It’s super soft, well-padded, and easy to wash. Overall, it’s a wonderful bed and great price.”Buy Now on Amazon Buy Now on Chewy
With its extra-thick 4-inch orthopedic foam mattress, this Brindle dog bed is a top-of-the-line option among pet beds. It has a soft velour or sherpa zippered cover that can be easily removed and is washer and dryer-safe. Plus, a waterproof encasement below the cover keeps the foam protected from accidents.
Available sizes: Small, Medium, and Large
Helpful Review: “This is the Benz of floor dog beds. The memory foam is thicker than the foam on my bed, and the waterproof cover is soft and comfy.”Buy Now on Amazon Buy Now on Chewy
Designed for small dogs under 35 pounds, this cozy Best Friends by Sheri dog bed comes with an attached blanket that provides extra security and warmth — a feature that’s perfect for anxious pets. It’s also fully machine-washable and boasts a faux fur interior and water-resistant bottom.
Available sizes: Small and Medium
Helpful Review: “I love how much my dog loves his new bed! He jumped right in before I could even take off the tag. He is a 15-pound Cheagle who loves to burrow in heaps of blankets and the 24-inch size is perfect for him—big enough to move around while still being cozy thanks to the walls. The bed interior and exterior are both super soft, and the gray Ilan is a nice, neutral, cooler gray color.'”Buy Now on Amazon
If you need a comfortable pet bed for the inside of your dog’s crate, this FurHaven orthopedic bed is a high-quality and affordable choice. It’s made of orthopedic egg crate foam with a plush, machine-washable cover. This bed is also available in over 35 different color and fabric options.
Available sizes: Small, Medium, Large, and Jumbo
Helpful Review: “Great price for an orthopedic type dog bed that is ‘crate size’. I found difficulty in finding an orthopedic type bed for crate dimensions; most were made too large or too small for a crate or were really expensive. This one was reasonably priced and the medium fit my dog’s crate perfectly. It is well-made, and the cover has a zipper to remove for washing. I’m very pleased and so is my Corgi.”Buy Now on Amazon
You’ll never have to worry about your dog sinking to the floor on an unsupportive mattress with this Big Barker orthopedic dog bed. It’s constructed specifically for large and extra-large breeds with seven inches of thick, orthopedic foam and a machine-washable microfiber cover. Plus, it comes with a 10-year warranty, so it’s guaranteed to last for years to come.
Available sizes: Large, Extra-Large, and Giant
Helpful Review: “I have had this dog bed for a year now, and it is still wonderful. It is my 12-year-old Lab’s favorite place to spend her time…The bed is still in good shape and just as perky as the first night she slept on it. I really think it helps her to get a good night sleep and get up in the morning with fewer aches and pain than she would have otherwise.”Buy Now on Amazon Buy Now on Chewy
A heated bed, like this K&H Pet one, is ideal for soothing an older dog’s stiff joints and muscles but even younger dogs will appreciate the extra warmth in colder months. It has tall, 5-inch bolster walls for a dog to rest his head on. And both the bed’s cushion and heater are removable, making it easy to wash the bed’s cover. You also don’t have to worry about unplugging it, since its low-wattage heater is safe to leave on all day.
Available sizes: Medium and Large
Helpful Review: “My two Dachshunds love it. They usually get cold but this bed gets just warm enough to keep the shivers at bay! They are 15 and 18 and well into their senior years. They both have arthritis and the bed seems to be comfy for both of them. Great price point, too!”Buy Now on Amazon Buy Now on Chewy

Helpful Review: “I was really impressed when I pulled this out of the box. It’s super plush, with a thick inner pillow and nice thick base support. The bolsters are solid, the material is thick and will not rip easily. Best of all, my aging Beagle who was waking up all stiff after sleeping on her old bed now wakes up and can move around more easily.”Buy Now on Amazon Buy Now on Chewy
