Whether your pet is a breed that’s naturally inclined to burrow—like a Dachshund or a Beagle—or one who simply prefers to sleep underneath a pile of blankets, a cave dog bed could really make their day (or night).
If you’re wondering whether a cave dog bed would appeal to your pup, one thing to watch for is whether they prefer to sleep under blankets when given the option. Some dogs will automatically sleep on top of a blanket while others will instinctively curl up underneath. If yours is the latter then there’s a good reason to suspect they would love a cave dog bed.
Keep in mind that while most cave dog beds cater to smaller pets, a few options exist for larger dogs as well. We suggest that you take your dog’s measurements before shopping.
Without further ado, here are the six best cave dog beds we’ve found.
Although this Snoozer cave dog bed is a little pricey, it’s high-quality and comes in an array of colours and styles. The fully machine-washable cover has a super-soft sherpa interior and either a cotton or microsuede exterior, while the bed’s filling is made of fluffy cedar and polyester filling—perfect for a dog who likes to nest.
Available sizes: Small, Large and Extra Large
Helpful Review: “My dog loves burrowing and being covered up, and I was tired of having blankets all over the house for him. The Snoozer cave solved that problem in a major way! It’s super light-weight and easy to move around, so I can place it in other rooms for him as needed.”Buy Now on Amazon
This FurHaven cave dog bed boasts a washable cover made of fleece or velvet and a hood that stands up on its own to give the bed its cave effect. You can also remove the plastic tubing that keeps the hood standing upright and turn the top part of the bed into a blanket.
With an orthopaedic foam base and twelve colours to choose from, it’s no wonder this bed receives glowing reviews on Amazon from pet owners.
Available sizes: 18, 26, 35 and 44-inches (that’s 45cm, 66cm, 88cm and 111cm)
Helpful Review: “My bulldog 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
If you’re not concerned with the top of the bed standing upright, this Best Friends by Sheri pet bed could be perfect for the furry cuddle-monster in your life. Designed for dogs up to 16kg, this entirely machine-washable bed has an attached cover that dogs can burrow under. Plus, it’s over-stuffed with warm polyester filling.

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 15lb (7kg) Cheagle who loves to burrow in heaps of blankets and the 24-inch (60cm) size is perfect for him—big enough to move around while still being cosy thanks to the walls. The bed interior and exterior are both super soft, and the ‘Grey Ilan’ is a nice, neutral, cooler grey colour.”Buy Now on Amazon
