Best pet beds

Looking for the best pet bed to suit your (and your furry friend's) style? From luxury mattresses for dogs to pretty cat beds, we've found the best pet beds around

Casper dog mattress

Choosing the perfect dog bed does actually go beyond the question of 'will it match my interior style?'. Obviously, this is a big part of the selection process when you're looking to buy a pet bed, but along with considering colourways and funky patterns, you need to think about important factors, like the size, age and sleeping style of your four legged friend. Is your pet a sprawler or do they do they tend to burrow? Do they like the comfort of sides or something more open? Do they need any extra support? 

It's times like these that it would really help if your pet could just tell you exactly what they are after in a bed but, alas, instead you will have to turn to our round up of the best pet beds we think will suit every style, budget and pet. Cats and dogs shown not included...
