My dog’s bed looks pretty cozy, but at the same time, I wouldn’t want to lay in it. No offense to my pal, but it’s hard to tell where the dog ends and the bed begins. The hair, the dander, the drool (my wife probably says, the same about our bed). It’s gross.
That is why we switched to a washable dog bed. He’s an animal, but not a wild animal. He deserves a clean bed too!
If you are looking to make life cleaner for your pup and easier for you, then you are in the right place. We’ve reviewed many options and come up with the Best Washable Dog Beds.
Why Use a Washable Dog Bed?
Well it makes cleaning simple. Life can be hectic, most people with dogs have kids too, stressful jobs and a house or apartment to keep clean, so why not make life easier.
Get a washable dog bed and let the washing machine worry about it. Unlike the outfit you picked out for your senior prom 20 years ago, it’s a choice you won’t regret.
Top 5 Best Washable Dog Beds
Trendy Pet Dog Bed
The bed isn’t just a run of the mill dog bed. The patterns and design make it look as though more thought has been put into it, and it’s treated more like a piece of furniture than a bed. And after all, don’t you want a piece of furniture for your pet?
There is an opening in the front, and then the rest of the cushion is surrounded by an edge to give your pet that secure, tucked in feeling. If your pet is part of the family why not splurge but splurging isn’t necessary.
It comes in three different sizes that support breeds up to 80 lbs. Also, this bed should fit nicely into any budget.
If you have a front-loading washing machine, cleaning this bed is a breeze. Toss it in, then just tumble dry, and it’s ready to go.
Suede Dog Bed by Majestic Pet
The Suede Dog Bed from Majestic Pet is as comfortable as it looks. Heck, I even get one for myself!
Unlike the Trendy Pet bed, this has more of a traditional look to it with the bolster going around the entire edge of the bed that is supportive enough for a headrest. There is also a waterproof bottom which makes this bed more unique than your standard “cushion thrown on the ground” beds.
There are eight colors to choose from so regardless of what room you are looking to put it in; you should be able to find something that works. The bed also comes in 4 different sizes (Small to X-Large) so no matter what size of your dog, there is a perfect bed for your furry pet.
If you have a large dog, you may want to seriously give the Suede Dog Bed a look because with many beds, as your dog’s size goes up, your options go down.
Cleaning is easy as well. To clean the small and medium-sized bagel beds, you just need to toss it into an oversize washer and then let it air dry.
For beds over 40-inch, they come with a removable and washable slipcover. It has two hidden zippers, one in the center cushion and the other zipper is on the bolster, which allows you to remove the cushion and put it back together with ease after washing.
The comfort of Suede bed plus the fact that they have a size for every bred is what gets it on this list. You and your pet (of any size) will find it worth the price.
Blueberry Pet Heavy Duty Pet Bed
The Blueberry Heavy Duty Pet Bed is an excellent bed for small to medium sized pets. Like the Trendy Pet bed, it has an opening in the front, surrounded by edges on the remaining three sides that make a dog feel secure. The difference is, this bed is made up of a scratch resistant thick microsuede fabric.
It also has many different styles available including some of which that are embroidered. This bed is like a great piece of art and is beautifully made, more so than just a place for it to sleep - an attractive addition to any room.
The Blueberry Pet Bed also comes in a large variety of colors and styles, which can make it a perfect fit in whatever room you end up placing it. As a special bonus, the bed comes with a squeaky bone pillow that adds a thoughtful touch.
To wash, you do have to remove the cover, so it isn’t as simple as throwing the whole thing in the wash and being done with it. But, it has a nice sturdy zipper on four sides and one at the bottom which makes the outer cover easy to remove and wash.
Your dog will feel spoiled when he see this show up at your house and for sure he will lounge in it every day.
Aspen Pet Oval Bed
If you have a small or toy breed dog and if you aren’t looking to break the bank, this may be the perfect bed for your pet.
The Aspen Pet Oval Cuddler Bed is well-cushioned and has raised bolstered side support for nesting; it also gives your pet the feeling of being cuddled and secured. The bed, however, does not come with many options. In fact, if you have anything other than a small or toy breed dog, it may not fit your needs.
If you do have a puppy or small dog breed, then I recommend this cuddler bed for your furry friend. With its inexpensive price, this is a pretty low-risk investment. But don’t let the price fool you. It is comfortable and durable.
When it comes to washing, there is no need to worry about covers, because the whole bed can go into the wash, this makes cleaning a one-step process. Well, two if you count moving it over to the drier. But it couldn’t be simpler.
Weighing at under 0.5 lbs it is easy to toss into any part of the house your pet likes to sleep. With its low price, you can even buy several and place them around the house where your dog wants to lay.
Because it's a decent plushy bed with a cheap price tag to match, it makes the list.
Good Life Solutions Premium Dog Bed
The bed comes in soothing pastel colors and two different sizes. The small will be perfect for any toy sized or small breeds, and the larger bed will accommodate a dog up to 50 lbs. If you have a large dog breed, you may want to consider a different bed.
Cleaning this bed is also rather easy. Unlike covers which you have to wrestle with to get on and off, you can separate the cushion from the enclosure and put them both into the washing machine. Then simply hang them up to dry.
The durability and quality you get for the price are what puts it on this top 5 list. Like the Suede Bed by Majestic, it also features a waterproof bottom on which if that is something you are looking for, you should put this product on your must-have list, as not many pet beds include this feature.
