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...

Engineered by the same team behind the coveted Casper mattress, this doggy sized variant is a durable, pressure-relieving memory foam bed with a removable, machine-washable cover, plus it features excess material on top to mimic the sensation of pawing at loose earth so your doggy can dig before laying down. It also conveniently comes with the same 100-night guarantee and the 30 night trial as the human sized mattress. Woof woof.
