Whether your dog has been swimming, gone for walkies in the rain—or is prone to accidents (perhaps you have a senior dog or a puppy)—a water resistant dog bed will always come in in very handy. But there are a lot of options, and it can be tough to know which style is best.
Typically, a water resistant dog bed works in one of two ways. Either the bed will have a water resistant lining, which helps prevent liquids such as urine from soaking into the bed’s filling. Or it will have a waterproof base, which means there won’t be leakage from the bed damaging the flooring underneath. Many waterproof beds also have weather-resistant covers, making them ideal for outdoor lounging or even camping.
No matter what style you’re looking for, you’re sure to find a great water resistant dog bed among our picks below.

3. Dogbed4less Waterproof Orthopedic Memory Foam Dog Bed (Verified Review)
This Dogbed4less memory foam bed comes with not one but two external covers, which is a major plus. So, while one cover is being washed, you can use the other as a backup. It also sports a waterproof liner over its four inches of gel-infused memory foam bedding to ensure that the bed lasts for many years to come.
Verified Review: Our reviewer, a Rover sitter, found that both her own dogs and the Rover dogs she hosted were “obsessed” with this bed, especially with the microsuede cover. (She observed that the denim cover was not as popular, possibly because the material was too stiff; but because it’s machine washable, after a few runs in the wash, it could soften up.)
One of her dogs, who usually preferred the floor to his existing dog bed, even took to using it. “He seems really comfortable and relaxed,” she said, noting that the bed was “very high quality, felt great, and appears to be supporting his joints extremely well.”Shop on Amazon
