#1 - The Best Dog Beds Review - MidWest Quiet Time Fashion Pet Bed Review
The MidWest Quiet Time Fashion Pet Bed is our pick for the best dog bed on the market! The Midwest Quiet Time Fashion Pet Bed is the perfect dog bed to put in your dog’s crate. Coming in a wide variety of sizes and colors, the Midwest Quiet Time Fashion Pet Bed will provide more than enough room for any dog that you have, whether it’s a small dog or a large dog! The best part about this bed is the price point. Regardless of size, this bed is cheaper than most of the competition out there, yet maintains a high standard of quality. In fact, we keep 3 of them in various spots of our home, so that our dog always has a comfortable place to lay and play!
Quality (5/5) – The quality of the Midwest Quiet Time Fashion Pet Bed is as good as it can get. Our dog loves to chew his bed. Really, really, really loves to chew his bed. It’s probably his favorite toy in the whole world! It takes our aggressive chewer around 1 year of aggressively chewing his bed before we have to replace it. This is a dog that can destroy a pillow in a matter of seconds (that was not fun to come home to the other day…)! The inside is filled with polyester and has a polyester/cotton base. When we lay down on it, we find it to be very comfortable, regardless of whether it is on a hard floor or on a carpet. If we find it comfortable, we know your dog will too!
Don’t take our word for it, look how much this dog loves his Midwest Quiet Time Fashion Pet Bed!
Features (5/5) – The bed comes in 3 different materials – fleece, cinnamon plush fur, and gray plush fur. The material that you get will depend on the color that you choose. Speaking of which, there are 6 colors to choose from, so your diva of a dog can properly accessorize. The dog bed is machine washable. We have not had any problems washing this dog bed in the years we have been using this brand. The bed doesn’t get too warm or too cold, it seems to always be just the right temperature. Our dog absolutely LOVES going into this bed at all times during the day!
Size (5/5) – The Midwest Quiet Time Fashion Pet Bed comes in 8, yes 8, different sizes! The sizes are 18 inches, 22 inches, 24 inches, 30 inches, 36 inches, 42 inches, 48 inches, and 54 inches. If you’re going to be purchasing this dog bed to put in a crate, get the same size bed as you got for a crate. Otherwise, here is a brief sizing chart:
For small breeds under 25 pounds, the 18 inch, 22 inch or 24 inch will be more than enough. Our adult Jack Russell Terrier sleeps on the 24 inch and has more than enough room. For chihuahuas, bichons, yorkis, dachshunds, and other smaller dogs, the 18 inch or 22 inch will be a great fit.
For breeds 26 to 50 pounds, the 30 inch and 36 inch will fit perfectly. Examples of breeds that would use the 30 inch are corgis, cocker spaniels, pinschers, and bigger terriers. Breeds that would use the 36 inch are shepherds, hounds, collies, and dalmations.
For large dog breeds, we always recommend going with the largest size. That is, unless you plan on using this in a crate, then go with the size based on the crate. You want to give your dog plenty of room on their dog bed, especially if they like to sprawl out on all 4s.
Aesthetics (5/5): We found that the Midwest Quiet Time Fashion Pet Bed looks very good, especially in one of the colored choices (We love the cinnamon)! For a simple dog bed, you’re not going to get much more aesthetically pleasing than this!
Price (5/5) – As mentioned earlier, the Midwest Quiet Time Fashion Pet Bed is a GREAT value. This bed, while of very high quality and many features, is very, very well priced.
Overall (25/25) – The Midwest Quiet Time Fashion Pet Bed is overall the best dog bed on the market! We found that the quality and features are excellent and will hold up to even the roughest of dogs. There are a number of sizing options, so finding one that fits your pups needs is guaranteed. For this price, you CANNOT go wrong with the Midwest Quiet Time Fashion Pet Bed. Even if you aren’t going to consider this for your dog’s every day bedding needs, it’s great to buy and keep around just in case you need a spare bed!
We recommend you pair this dog bed with the MidWest Life Stages Folding Metal Dog Crate! Read our review of the crate here!
#2 - THE BEST DOG BEDS Review - Happy Hounds Oscar Orthopedic Dog Bed Review
The Happy Hounds Oscar Orthopedic Dog Bedis simply put, AMAZING! This is BY FAR the best orthopedic dog bed on the market. When we say this bed is comfortable, we really mean it! IT IS VERY, VERY COMFORTABLE! Your dog is NOT going to want to leave this bed!
Quality (5/5) – The Happy Hounds Oscar Orthopedic Dog Bed is the best quality dog bed that we have ever seen. If they made this in human size, I would consider sleeping on it. Seriously, it’s that good. The outside of the bed is made of a heavy-duty microfiber fabric that is incredibly durable. It’s very, very difficult for a dog to chew or claw through this bed. The inside is made up of super comfortable memory foam material. It feels exactly like what’s in my $1000 queen sized mattress. I love it! This product is built to last for many years. Cannot emphasize that enough. You will not need to replace this bed often.
Features (5/5) – The Happy Hounds Oscar Orthopedic Dog Bed is the best orthopedic dog bed on the market due to how well the bed supports your dog when they’re laying on it. Just like your memory foam mattress supports you, your dog will have less stress placed on their joints when they’re laying on this bed. This is also a great bed for elderly dogs who spend most of the day laying around and sleeping. The heavy duty fabric is machine washable and can reverse to a much softer fabric. In addition, the fabric is water resistant, so your dog’s drool can easily be wiped up.
Size (5/5) – The Happy Hounds Oscar Orthopedic Dog Bed comes in 3 different sizes – small (24″ x 36″), medium (30″ x 42″), and large (36″ x 48″). Let me state that these beds are LARGE. When comparing the sizes of all the beds that we reviewed, these beds always seem to run on the larger side of things. Please take that into consideration when you’re making your purchasing decision. In addition, if you have multiple dogs, you may want to consider only purchasing one of these beds. The bed is sooooo comfortable that your pups will love to sleep with one another!
Aesthetics (5/5) – This dog bed is beautiful! The two shades of material blend very well together. In addition, dog hair just blends in with this bed. It’s great!
Price (5/5) – Considering you are getting the absolute best orthopedic dog bed on the market, the price for the Happy Hounds Oscar Orthopedic Dog Bed cannot be beat! You (and your dog) will get their money’s worth with this bed. Considering how long the bed will last for and how well this bed will alleviate stress on your dog’s joints, this bed can be considered a great investment!
Overall (25/25) – The Happy Hounds Oscar Orthopedic Dog Bed is THE BEST ORTHOPEDIC DOG BED ON THE MARKET! This is especially true for large dogs! It’s very hard to find a quality orthopedic dog bed for large dogs. The quality and features are amazing and the bed comes in great sizing options. The price point matches the quality that you will be receiving. Remember, this bed is great for your dog’s longevity!
#3 - THE BEST DOG BEDS Review - Majestic Pet Suede Bagel Dog Bed Review
The Majestic Pet Suede Bagel Dog Bed is the third best dog bed that we reviewed. The Majestic Pet Suede Bagel Dog Bed is by far the best looking dog bed that we reviewed. The bed is very elegant, yet super durable and even more comfortable! This bed is particularly great if your dog loves to cuddle, as they will be able to rest gently against the risen sides of the bed!
Quality (5/5) – The Majestic Pet Suede Bagel Dog Bed is super well made. The outside is a heavy duty suede fabric that will be able to easily withstand your dog chewing on it. Users have reported that this bed can be dragged, tugged, and thrown around and still look as good as the day it did when it was delivered! The inside of the bed is filled with a very high quality polyester fiber fill. What this means is that your dog will have a super comfortable place to lay and sleep! We found no evidence that the padding would decrease over time.
Features (4.5/5) – My favorite part of the Majestic Pet Suede Bagel Dog Bed is the raised sides. Dogs that are cuddlers will absolutely love how they can cuddle up against the raised sides. Because the sides are raised all around, even large dogs can take part in the fun! Like most of the best dog beds that we review, this bed is machine washable. One downside is that you may need a very large washer in order to wash this bed, depending on the size that you get. While we found no evidence that this bed will begin to smell over time (in fact, we found that this bed breathes very well), accidents do happen and cleaning will be required at times. Unless your dog gets fleas, spot training with Nature’s Miracle or another dog cleaner will probably be able to do the trick.
Size (5/5) – The Majestic Pet Suede Bagel Dog Bed will accommodate dogs of any size. I know it can be difficult to find a dog bed for large dogs. Luckily, the Majestic Pet Suede Bagel Dog Bed will easily accommodate even the biggest of puppies. The bed comes in 4 sizes – 24 inch, 32 inch, 40 inch, and 52 inch.
The manufacturer was kind enough to provide us with a sizing guide:
Aesthetics (5/5) – We LOVE the way this bed looks. We are huge fans of bagel dog beds, especially when they’re brown! Luckily for us, brown is one of the 5 colors offered! This bed looks GREAT!
Price (5/5) – The Majestic Pet Suede Bagel Dog Bed is a great value and is easily the best bagel dog bed on the market. The pricing per inch is in line with all of the best dog beds on the market. The price is actually pretty low given the high quality materials that this bed is made of.
Overall (24.5/25) – The Majestic Pet Suede Bagel Dog Bed is PHENOMENAL! If not for the slight difficulty in finding a washer that’s large enough to accommodate this bed, we would have given it a perfect score. This is a perfect bed for large dogs and small dogs, alike – especially if your dog loves to cuddle! Your dog will absolutely love laying and sleeping in this bed – and will look SUPER cute doing it! This is one of the best dog beds on the market!
#4 - THE BEST DOG BEDS Review - Majestic Pet Rectangle Pet Bed Review
The Majestic Pet Rectangle Pet Bed is a wonderfully designed, aesthetically pleasing bed that your dog will love to lay on. In fact, you’ll find it hard to wake them up from a nap when they’re on this bed! The bed is very well constructed and will be able to handle dogs of all sizes! This is one of the best dog beds ever made… and here’s why!
Quality (5/5) – The Majestic Pet Rectangle Pet Bed is very well designed. The cover is made of a polyester / cotton twill and a fau sheepskin. Your dog will find this to be very comfortable! Also, the cover is very durable and should hold up well despite your dog’s best efforts. Many users have reported their dogs dragging this bed around with little to no signs of wear on it! The inside is filled with high quality loft fill, which is what premium pets beds are usually stuffed with.
Features (5/5) – The Majestic Pet Rectangle Pet Bed has premium quality features that are usually only found in the super-high end dog beds. We cannot rave enough about the quality of the cover that is on this bed. It cleans very, very easily from accidents, drool, and hair – probably cleans the easiest out of all the dog beds that we reviewed. As well, the cover is machine washable and leaves little to no fibers in your dryer. Side note: The inner stuffing bag cannot be washed – please do not wash it!). Really though, the best feature on this bed is the cover – which we feel is the most important part, as that is what your dog is going to be directly laying on!
Size (4/5) – The Majestic Pet Rectangle Pet Bed comes in 3 sizes – Medium, Large, and Extra Large. Medium beds are recommended for dogs under 45 pounds, large beds are recommended for dogs 45 – 70 pounds, and extra large beds are recommended for dogs over 70 pounds. One thing to note is that a lot of users stated that they should buy a size bigger, because the beds run small. We did not find evidence of this, but please take this advice if your dog is right at the intersection of 2 bed sizes.
Aesthetics (5/5) – This bed is gorgeous. We absolutely love the look of the Majestic Pet beds. The best part? The bed is available in 7 different colors!
Price (5/5) – Given the premium quality of this bed, you would expect it to cost a fortune. Nope, not even remotely the case. This bed is very well priced given the premium feel of this dog bed.
Overall (24/25) – The Majestic Pet Rectangle Pet Bed is a true work of art. We highly recommend this bed if you have a dog that loves to sprawl out on all 4s! This bed is so comfortable that you’re going to have a very difficult time waking them up from their naps. You made need some high quality dog treats to do the trick! We firmly believe that the Majestic Pet Rectangle Pet Bed is one of the best dog beds on the market!
#5 - THE BEST DOG BEDS Review - AmazonBasics Padded Pet Bolster Bed Review
The AmazonBasics Padded Pet Bolster Bed is a great dog bed for an even better value! While AmazonBasics is brand new to the dog bedding world, they’ve done a great job with their crate and bed! This is a well-made, no frills dog bed that will leave even the most stubborn of dogs satisfied. If you’re looking for a simple bed for your dog’s crate or an extra dog bed for the house, look no further than the AmazonBasics Padded Pet Bolster Bed!
Quality (4/5) – The AmazonBasics Padded Pet Bolster Bed is comprised of a soft fleece cover and a polyester cushion. We found that the AmazonBasics Padded Pet Bolster Bed was fairly durable, but not as durable as the other best dog beds that we reviewed. However, if your dog is not an aggressive chewer, than this bed will hold up just fine.
Features (4.5/5) – The AmazonBasics Padded Pet Bolster Bed is primarily marketed as a dog bed for your dog’s crate, but it can be used outside of the crate if you’d like. However, we’d recommend one of the dedicated dog bed’s listed above for outside the crate. With that said, for what it’s made for, the AmazonBasics Padded Pet Bolster Bed has great features, such as being machine washable, easily cleanable, and great at hiding the hair that your dog sheds. The bed is very lightweight and portable. One thing we really liked that we wish more crate-made dog bed’s had, was that you can tie this to your dog cage so that it won’t move.
Size (4.5/5) – The AmazonBasics Padded Pet Bolster Bed comes in 3 different sizes – Small (22 inches), Medium (35 inches), and Large (40 inches). Purchase of this dog bed should be made based upon the size of the crate that you plan on buying for your dog. See our dog crate reviews here for various sizing charts!
Aesthetics (4/5) – The AmazonBasics Padded Pet Bolster Bed looks very good, but we found that it can get discolored from stains fairly easily. Of course, this dog bed is machine washable, so that isn’t much of a problem.
Price (5/5) – The AmazonBasics Padded Pet Bolster Bed is a GREAT value. It’s the least expensive quality dog bed on the market. You really cannot beat this price!
Overall (22/25) – The AmazonBasics Padded Pet Bolster Bed is a wonderful dog bed should you need a bed for your dog’s crate or a spare dog bed for around the house. It is a simple, yet effective dog bed that your dog would love to sleep on!
