We updated this article in March 2023 to provide additional testing information by the
Good Housekeeping Institute and replaced four outdated picks with the following: K9 Ballistics Tough Rectangle Pillow, Sealy Orthopedic Dog Bed, K&H Elevated Dog Bed and LeSure Calming Flower Bed.
Sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress can cause you all types of issues, from sleepless nights to aches and pains that just don’t make any sense. Why would your pet be any different? Although your dog may choose to kip on the hard floor or hop up on the couch, having a good dog bed is still a great idea to give your pup somewhere that’s theirs and theirs alone. Plus, they might finally decide to sleep somewhere that’s not your bed and give you a little bit of room back.
When it comes to picking out the best products for your beloved fur babies, the Good Housekeeping Institute has you covered. From the best dog toys to dog harnesses that will make walks comfortable for both you and your pet, our experts have tested dozens of products to bring you our favorites. Our pet pros worked with the Textiles Lab, which gives expert bedding advice like how to choose which mattress, sheets and pillows to buy, to find the best dog beds on the market. Our experts know what makes a supportive, cozy bed (for humans or animals) and the materials that last against even the toughest abrasion, like those sharp puppy nails. Together, we tested two dozen beds, selecting the best dog beds from brands we know and trust that have unique features, tested well with our experts and consumer testers and received excellent reviews from many happy customers.
