Designed to accommodate your pets, from the size to the materials, these types of furniture are durable and long-wearing. With our designers’ selections, your furry friends will have a place to rest and sleep without breaking your home’s aesthetics.

Our Picks

Scrolled Dog Sofa

Scrolled Dog Sofa

Archie & Oscar™

Stylish in a traditional sense, this dog couch bed will make your furry friend feel like royalty. Its plush upholstery is covered in soft fabric and lined with nailhead accents. Curved arms and back with four solid block feet complete the look. 

$149.99 $269.99

Designer Advice:

With its shot-fur and caramel-colored fabric, there is a tendency for it to get dirty and soiled after quite some time. The cushion can be machine washed with a mild detergent while the fixed parts can be spot cleaned with a clean cloth. We recommend sewing Velcro tape under the seat as it tends to slide off, especially if you have rowdy pets.

Low Bolster Bed

Low Bolster Bed

Archie & Oscar™

$119.95 $125.82

Midcentury Dog Couch

Midcentury Dog Couch

Tucker Murphy Pet™

Plush and inviting, this large dog couch will be your fury baby’s favorite spot. It sits close to the floor and follows a bolstered design with its flared arms and back. The channel tufting on the bed adds a soft component.

Designer Advice:

Its attractive appeal makes it the perfect choice for modern interiors since it coordinates well with contemporary furnishings and décor. It does tend to lose its shape after some time, so best to fluff it regularly. We recommend adding some blankets on top if your pet is not a fan of the channel tufting.

Chesterfield Dog Couch

Chesterfield Dog Couch

Three Posts™

This dog couch features the scrolled arms, tufted details, and nailhead accents that are all reminiscent of the Chesterfield sofa. It is upholstered in faux leather with a dark brown color. Made especially for pets 80 lbs and lighter.

$275.44 $349.99

Designer Advice:

Perfect for placing in front of the fireplace in your living room, den, or bedroom. Coordinate the look by getting your pets a feeder that has the same wood finish as the couch’s legs. Place a carpet in front, preferably in a lighter color to add a bit of contrast to their sleeping area. 

Curved Dog Sofa

Curved Dog Sofa

A small dog couch bed that radiates playfulness and comfort. Designed for dogs 25 lbs lighter, it has a cocoon-like appeal with its curved back and arms that extend to the front. Filled with memory foam and upholstered in polyester, available in dark gray and navy blue.

Designer Advice:

With its form and rounded birch legs, this is a great pick for midcentury-modern interiors. We recommend placing rubber pads on the feet or placing the couch on a rug to prevent the legs from sliding. The cushioned part might feel stiff for some dogs, but you can solve it by adding a layer of bedding or blankets on top for extra comfort.

Buying Guide

Pet couch beds give your pooches a chance to snuggle away in comfort after a weary day at play. These canine-friendly versions of human couches are designed to sustain paws, claws, drool, dander and everything else that your pets drag into them.

They come in eye-pleasing designs. More importantly, they keep rambunctious pets away from your expensive sofas and lounges. However, shopping for pet couch beds isn’t as easy as selecting dog crates. There are multiple factors that need to be considered before you narrow down on one.

Here’s some help to make the process easier.

The dog couch bed must be big enough to allow your dog to sleep comfortably. Having said that, dogs like to sleep in different positions. Some, sleep with their limbs stretched out in front of them. Others, cuddle up in a cradled position, while there are a few who sleep on their backs much like their human parents.

Irrespective of which category your pet fits into, grab a measuring tape and measure them from the tip of their nose to the tip of their tail. Add at least 6-8 inches to this on both sides. That’s the minimum length of the couch bed for you.

Always consider your dog’s age and health before selecting a dog couch bed. A young and healthy dog will be comfortable in just about any type of couch as long as its comfy. But an older dog might be better off with a thicker bed that provides more lumbar and joint support.

Also, the couch must not be too high off the ground which makes it difficult to climb into or get out of. If your dog has arthritis, go for an orthopedic dog bed with a memory foam fill, instead of a conventional couch which can be filled with egg foam or poly fill.

Look for a couch bed with a waterproof inner lining for older dogs with urinary incontinence. In case of puppies, this lining will protect the mattress from an accidental spill or two.

Dog couch beds should have an upholstery material that can sustain the wear and tear that curious digging claws can subject it to and is easy to clean as well.

  • If you have dog breeds that shed excessively, like a Golden Retriever or a Siberian Husky, opt for a removable cover that’s made of cotton or cotton blends.
  • If it’s a short haired breed, then a cover made of fleece that keeps them warm during the winters will be a better pick.
  • Check if the cover is machine washable or needs to be dry cleaned.

The couch beds might or might not have an internal frame. If it does, check the material. Solid wooden frames are sturdy and can withstand the weight of heavy dogs. So are metal frames. MDF or Plywood frames might work with small, lighter dog breeds. But won’t cut the mustard for heavy dogs.

Dog couch beds are available in a plethora of attractive designs. There are pillow-styled couches which are easy to access for older dogs, donut styled beds which have cradling sides and an all-enclosed design, as well as miniature versions of normal furniture.

So, you can buy a doggie chaise lounge and pair it with your existing one. Or a sofa to pair with your couch. Match the upholstery and it would look like a mini-sofa that you got custom made for your child.
