The Best Elevated Dog Beds For 2017

Elevated dog beds are frequently chew-proof and weather-resistant, minimally built but rugged and comfortable for small and large dogs alike. They are built from mesh and metal parts, which means they'll put up a fight if your dog is determined to destroy them. Plus they're really lightweight- so you can easily transport them along with your pet to a BBQ or the beach and camp out in comfort together. 


The Best Dog Couches For Large Dogs In 2017

Dog couches for large dogs are much less frequent than their miniature cousins built for toy dogs, but there are a couple out there that are sturdy, comfortable and an attractive complement to your home's decor. As you can see from the table below, these are pricier than your run-of-the-mill dog bed, but as long as your pet isn't prone to chewing, they could be gorgeous complement to your family area.   


The Best Hooded Cave Dog Beds In 2017

Hooded cave pet beds are great for dogs that love to burrow into a safe, warm space. You'll have to be careful that you select a size that's a good fit for your dog. Luckily, they often come in different sizes, so you can find a cave dog bed that fits a large-breed Labrador or a smaller-breed Collie. 


The Best Dog Beds For Medium-Sized Dogs In 2017

If you own a medium-sized dog, generally they stand around 18-22" at their shoulders, typically weighing between 40-60 pounds. The following medium sized dog beds are solid options for pets in that weight and height class. 


The Best Memory Foam Dog Beds In 2017

A memory foam dog bed is built from polyurethane and is complemented by additional chemicals that boost its density. This viscoelastic polyurethane foam can be especially comfortable for older dogs that need a particularly soft and forgiving space to rest because the memory foam softens in reaction to your dog's body heat, letting it quickly mold to their warm body (Wikipedia).


The Best Dog Pet Stairs For 2017

If your dog needs some help clambering up to your bed or couch, some pet stairs can provide needed assistance to ensure that your elderly or disabled pet can access these elevated areas.


The Best Donut Dog Beds For 2017

Bolstered donut dog beds are ideal for dogs that like to curl up as opposed to spread out. You can buy them in different sizes, so whether you have a Boston Terrier or a Golden Retriever, you can find a bolstered dog bed that will fit your pet. Generally, these beds are oval-shaped with cushioned center and raised bolsters on the sides that help your pet feel secure and settled in their resting space.


The Best Outdoor Dog Beds For 2017

An outdoor dog bed is a weather-resistant and water-proofed option that can live out of doors, providing your pet a comfortable resting spot in the backyard. Some even include canopies to protect from the harsh glare of the sun. The Snoozer and FurHaven options are waterproof (useful if your elderly dog has incontinence issues) while the Quik Shade and Refined Canine Chaise Lounge outdoor beds include canopies to stylishly shade your pet as they lounge on your poolside patio.


The Best Leather Dog Beds For 2017

A leather dog bed is primarily a fashion choice for design-inspired dog owners. In general, these pricier leather beds do offer comfort and style at the expense of chew-resistance. As you can see in the table below, they frequently come in the style of a couch or sofa, providing an elevated area for your pet to snuggle into. You'll want to be careful sizing these leather dog sofas- they are often produced for smaller dogs, so be sure to take some measurements of your pooch prior to purchase. 


The Best Indestructible Dog Beds For 2017

If you're looking for a dog bed that your pet can't shred or chew up, you're in the market for what's frequently referred to as an 'indestructible dog bed'. As a caveat, no dog bed is completely indestructible to the determined dog who just thrills at eviscerating your pricey purchase. That said, there are a couple that are genuinely resistant to chewing and shredding without breaking the bank. Probably the best option if your dog is a real destroyer of dog beds is the chew-resistant Coolaroo elevated pet cot. This is an elevated dog bed equipped with a powder-coated steel that users say typically perseveres against determined chewers.

So it shouldn't come as a surprise that there are some outrageously cute dog beds out there that will just melt your heart and possibly tickle your funny bone.

The Best Wicker Dog Beds For 2017

Wicker dog beds, like leather dog beds, are on the stylish end of the dog bed spectrum. Often a less practical option, but doable if your pet doesn't delight in chewing up wicker (obviously). They are really lightweight and provide style points in a way that a filthied dog mattress just won't. If you have a large-breed dog, you might be out of luck because these are primarily designed for small-breed pets. Though wicker throughout time has been constructed from plant-based materials, in modern times it has been swapped out with plastic fibers that mimic the appearance but provide increased endurance and flexibility.


The Best Wooden Dog Beds For 2017

A wooden dog bed is another fashionable style of dog bed- with a variety of styles to choose from. There are wooden beds with wheels, with storage spaces, and even some that fit in the entry-way of your home, a true space-saver.
