It is stain-repellent, which is ideal for when your dog is muddy, and it comes with UV protection, allowing you to keep it outside in the blazing sunshine.

The stand-out feature is the solution-dyed acrylic, a special fabric that can withstand chewing and scratching and resists shredding. It’s water-resistant too, which means that you can keep this product outside, without worrying about the beans inside getting soggy. The Ultimate Large Dog Bed uses a dual material design.

The Hayman is perhaps the most versatile indoor-outdoor dog bed available. Not only is the product extra large, offering plenty of space for the biggest breeds, but it’s also suitable for people too, just in case you want something with dual function. The Hayman features a uniquely shaped shell that allows you to use it both flat, like a dog bed, and upright, like a chair. When laid out on the floor, it has more than enough space for two people or one extra-large dog. And when you stand it upright, it creates a chair with a comfortable seat. While the Hayman is great for promotional purposes, it’s also a favourite among dog owners. Since its release, it has proved its ability to withstand harsh environments, including in Australia, Thailand and the Maldives, making it one of the most robust bean bags currently available anywhere. The outer shell is made of a soft-woven polyester fabric coated in breathable layers that keeps water out but also provides cooling airflow for your pooch in hot weather. Ultimately, the Hayman is for dog owners looking for a bright, fun and stylish multi-use dog bed that works anywhere on their property, including in the garden.

Yeti Trailhead Dog Bed

The Yeti Trailhead Dog is the perfect accessory for any dog owner looking for a bed to use on the move. It has large sidewalls to keep dogs contained when travelling. And it comes with a separate mattress topper that you can remove and clean separately. The walls of the bedding are perfect for chin resting, sweet dreaming and for your dog to give you the dreaded puppy eyes. Yeti equipped the bottom of the Trailhead Dog Bed with an EVA-molded sturdy base. The concept is quite simple: you can whip out the mattress topper for easy cleaning, while the surrounding base is sturdy and designed to withstand the weight of big dogs. Yeti also makes the Trailhead for outdoor use. The base features a rugged waterproof material to prevent moisture from the wet ground from seeping through into the fabric and filler. You can literally stand this bed in a puddle overnight and the innards will remain dry.

Coolaroo Elevated Pet Bed

Some manufacturers take a completely different approach to dog beds. Instead of creating an outer liner and stuffing it with material, some use a metal frame. The makers of the Coolaroo Elevated Pet Bed did just that. The bed is quite unusual when you first see it. It’s essentially a set of metal bars that create a square frame, with a piece of fabric stretched between each of the sides, providing a sleeping area for your pup. The height of the fabric keeps the underside off the floor and provides airflow for your pup in the summer. And because there are no internal materials, the bed is almost impervious against chewers and wreckers. Dogs can’t damage the metal. And even if somehow destroy the fabric bedsheet (which is unlikely), it is easy to repair and replace. The Coolaroo comes in a variety of colours. You can place it indoors or use it outside.

PetFusion Ultimate Lounger Orthopedic Dog Bed

Big Barker Headrest Edition Pillow Dog Bed

This sizable bed features special supportive foam for reduced pressure on joints and high-quality construction for added longevity. The product is ideal for any dog recovering from an operation. In terms of construction, the Big Barker features a 100 per cent microfibre cover to keep out bad smells and stains. And it's machine washable, eliminating the hassle of cleaning it by hand in the sink.

You don’t wind up with a flat, sorry-looking dog bed that provides no more comfort than the floor itself. So who is this dog bed for? Well, essentially, it’s for the dog owner looking for something that will provide joint support to a large or older dog. Arthritis is a significant problem for a lot of pooches in their golden years, but this can help ease some of the discomforts they may experience.

Dog Bed King Cuddler Nest Pet Bed

The Dog Bed King Cuddler Nest Pet Bed is the most traditional style of bed we’ve seen so far in this post. Like dog beds of old, it features a bucket-style design with raised edges to keep your pooch neatly contained. The bed itself is made of high-density foam, which helps to keep the price down. And it comes with a cover held in place by an elastic band for easy removal and washing. As for colours, you have a choice of burgundy and brown, black and cream, beige and cream or navy blue and cream. When purchasing this dog bed, there are some compromises. While the price is highly affordable, the stuffing is made of basic egg crate foam which will flatten over time. The fabrics are also of lower quality, meaning that they might not stand up to your dog’s claws and teeth. When choosing a dog bed, you ideally want around four inches of padding between the dog and the floor. This product only comes with two. However, if you’re on a strict budget, this could still be the best value.

To that end, they created a product with a shallow indentation in the middle and a high wrap-around bolster around the edge - great for chin resting. The plush faux cover looks like a stain magnet - and it is - but it is easy to remove and machine washable. The bottom of the product is water and dirt-proof, allowing you to place it outside.
