7 Best Dog Pillows & Cushions

7 Best Dog Pillows & Cushions

A pooch will always enjoy his comfortable dog pillow or dog cushion. It can be placed in its crate or even on your own bed for them to enjoy whenever they feel like having a snooze.

Dog pillows and cushions are just like human ones: some are super nice looking, some are super comfy, but rarely both. In this article, we are listing pillows for dogs that are both comfortable and great looking. Let’s not forget that looks are totally subjective so we’ll try to cater to a wide range of tastes here.

Essentially, a great dog pillow is a functional pillow especially because dogs don’t have that judgment on looks. Dogs prefer an ugly pillow that is super comfy over a super cute cushion that does not feel right. To put it simply, only you as the dog owner have to find the right balance and pick the most suitable pillow for your dog in the below list.

These products are not recommended for aggressive chewers, so if you have one at home, read our review of the best chewproof dog beds.

1. K&H Manufacturing Cuddle Cube

Available in grey, green and mocha colors as well as small, medium-large sizes, the K&H Manufacturing Cuddle Cube is an amazing winner because it would fit in all homes and offers such a comfortable rest for any dog.

It is soft and warm on the outside and smoothly padded inside. It is over 12″ thick which offers a super agreeable spot for bigger dogs too. The non-slip bottom is useful for dogs that tend to move and turn around a lot.

K&H is famous for only using long-lasting durable materials of high quality so you know that you are getting a bang for your bucks. This is an eco-friendly big cuddly pillow since the fill is made from recycled plastic bottles. It is obviously non-toxic for dogs!

2. Best Friends by Sheri Ortho Comfort

The perfect dog cushion for owners who want to look after their pet’s aching joints. It offers maximum support thanks to its innovative design that provides premium comfort for more fragile dogs, smaller breeds, and senior pets.

The Sherpa fabric makes it ultra-soft and gentle to the skin while the cleaning is as easy as throwing it in the washing machine and letting it air dry.

This super comfy half-cushion half-bag has a unique design: the high (12″) overstuffed rear wall that offers back support and relieves any unwanted pressure on the joints, while the front wall has been carved lower (9″) in order to support your dog’s head and neck.

Because of its unique shape, this sleeper bed for dogs has the versatility required to accommodate various sleeping positions! And hey, it does look pretty cool and inviting to me…

3. Armarkat Pet Bed with Waterproof Lining

Finally, a thick design that doesn’t flatten out the minute your dog lays on it. No more pancake effect with this Armarkat dog bed. Plus, setting it all up is almost instantaneous: push the filling inside the zipper, zip it up, and you’re done!

If your dog gets warm and panting during the summer, you’ll be pleased to know that many people noted how breathable the fabric is with this dog bed, so it should be a great item to have throughout the hot summer days.

The inside bedding has 3 slots on the inside to make sure the support and the inside filler is evenly distributed so it does not fall out to the outside of the bedding. This big cushioned dog bed also has a non-slip material on the base so it will not slide around on hardwood floors.

4. MidWest Quiet Time Pet Bed

Such a great-looking dog pillow that you may use on its own or in your dog’s crate. It is made from super-soft synthetic fur and has a non-skid bottom surface to avoid slippery accidents.

The MidWest Quiet Time Pet Bed looks so good, especially when you have it in your hands and definitely is softer than most pillows and beds for dogs. It is completely suitable for your washing machine and lasts a long time with most dogs. It is a great product from a very popular and respected brand in the dog world, MidWest.

Great bed. It is soft and comfy for my dog. It has held up well with him lying on it every day for 6 months. I was also able to stuff it into a bag to take on a trip. When I took it back out, it went back to it’s regular shape.

I would definitely use it in a crate or a hard floor for some added padding and comfort. Surely not an orthopedic dog bed but it is definitely worth every penny.

5. All for Paws Lambswool Pillow Bed for Dogs

When you receive this pillow, you’ll get a big package and unbox it to find a gushy, comfortable, smooth dog pillow. After few weeks, you’ll realize how great to construction is since it doesn’t flatten out easily and if you have a couple of dogs or cats, you’ll soon find them both lounging on it.

The lambswool is a very comforting material, adding a little warmth on top of the feel-good it provides to dogs. I find this Lambswool cushion very reassuring for dogs suffering from separation anxiety, especially for the first training sessions. It really has a great soothing feeling!

It is available in a variety of sizes and colors so you can find the right cushion for your home. Machine washable too so you can have a weekly cleaning to make sure your dog always sleeps in a fresh spot.

6. Separation Anxiety Relief Dog Bed

Sometimes, products are just average copies of similar items — not the Separation Anxiety Relief Dog Bed. It is a unique and smart dog pillow that acts as a potent separation anxiety reliever. The cover opens up so you can insert your own pillow in it to make a comfy dog bed that has your scent.

Studies have repeatedly shown that dogs recognize one another using scent primarily so having your scent in there will soothe their stress while you are out and about doing your chores. In other words, your dog will feel that you are right there with him as they fall asleep.

Half of this unique patented pillow bed has your pillow in it while the other half is a blanket. And don’t worry if your dog has a little accident, the cover is machine-washable! If your dog is a victim of severe separation anxiety, check out these anxiety vests and wraps for dogs.

7. Milliard Premium Orthopedic Memory Foam

Favoring the comfort over the looks, the Milliard orthopedic dog pillow bed has some amazing features that beat regular pillows for dogs:

  • memory foam for therapeutic comfort (fighting arthritis and aching joints)
  • high-density foam base to contour your dog’s body regardless of its body weight
  • highest quality materials for a long-lasting shape avoiding the flattening syndrome
  • non-slip bottom to be sure the bed stays where you put it
  • machine washable and fully dryable for quick and easy cleaning

This pillow bed cover is lined with plastic on the inside and the outside shows a beautiful yet discreet light tan color. On top of all these pros, you can also enjoy a waterproof cover to keep everything clean when accidents occur.

Dog pillows and more generally dog beds are not a one size fits all kind of item. You don’t necessarily need to do trial and error either, you just need to understand what your dog requires and choose the most suitable pillow accordingly. If your dog has no specific requirement, you can give the looks and ergonomy more value in your final decision process. Check out our other reviews of top quality dog beds:
