We could all use a bit more sleep. Your cat or dog (or other beloved animals) is no exception. Whether you’ve got a young, energetic pup that can play fetch for hours without tiring or an older, wiser cat that spends most of its time lounging on the sofa, a good pet bed is a must. In particular, older pets may develop health conditions like arthritis, so a good, supportive place to snooze can help relieve any pain associated with those ailments. Naturally, the type of bed depends a lot on the individual pet. Some models are bigger, others are smaller—you’d be hard-pressed to fit a Great Dane in a bed meant for a Chihuahua. Here, nine to suit whatever you’ve got at home.

Altuzarra Dog Bed
The name Altuzarra is most closely associated with high-end women’s fashion, but the brand has dipped its toes into the realm of animal couture, too. Its dog bed is a collaboration with Etsy, and features a non-slip bottom, a portable handle and an orthopedic insert. You can also buy the stylish cover sans mattress if you’ve already got one that you like at home.
Serena & Lily Dog Bed
Serena & Lily is best known for its airy outdoor furniture, and the brand’s dog bed has that same sensibility. The frame is made of handcrafted rattan plus woven detailing, and the slipcover is a classic, no-nonsense gingham. Your dog may not appreciate all these small details, but you and your guests certainly will.
PupRug Orthopedic Dog Bed
The product name here is a bit of a misnomer, as cats enjoy this cozy bed just as much as their canine compatriots. It’s not the most attractive offering out there—your best bet is to try and pass it off as a small, oddly shaped shag rug or something—but it’s undeniably cozy for pets.
The Refined Feline Outdoor Dog Bed
The product name and brand may sound like an oxymoron, but don’t let that fool you—this bed is the best way for a dog to relax outdoors in style. The base is waterproof poly-rattan, so it won’t fall apart when it starts to rain, and the overhanging shade will keep your furry companion cool in the summer.
Jax & Bones Arctic Shag Bed
Even humans agree: It’s good to have a warm, cozy bed to curl up in during the winter. Jax & Bones’s bed will have any dog feeling like they’re sleeping on a fluffy cloud—it’s made of memory foam, with bolstered sides that are filled with eco-friendly fibers.
Tuft and Paw Stellar Cat Bed
One of the biggest perks of the Stellar bed is that it looks like miniature furniture, so it’s not a total eyesore like man pet beds out there. Obviously, it will only fit a cat (or a very small dog) but it’s plenty comfortable for either furry friend: the interior is outfitted with a faux fur blanket so they can peacefully unwind and catch some z’s.
Pendleton Grand Canyon National Park Kuddler Bed Wrap
Pendleton’s pet bed is ideal for the outdoor set, as its color scheme is inspired by the vistas and sunsets of Grand Canyon National Park. It’s a good spot for your dog or cat to unwind too, as it’s made with recycled memory fiber, and the cover is removable and can be machine washed. And if you have another favorite national park, the brand has a whole collection of blankets and dog beds inspired by these picturesque spots.
Animals Matter Katie Puff
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—the Katie Puff will make even the pickiest of pooches feel right at home. It’s shaped like an oversized donut, with an overstuffed bolster that gives dogs a sense of security while sleeping. The bed’s memory foam makeup will help support older dogs, too, though it’s perfect for a pup of any age.
Barbour Quilted Dog Bed
Barbour is more synonymous with outerwear than pet beds, but the British brand can certainly do both. This one is reminiscent of some of its most famous designs and is made with a quilted fabric that’s sure to keep man’s best friend warm in the winter months.
