Whether you have a tiny Pomeranian or a giant Great Dane, all dogs need a private cozy spot to sleep—and gnaw on a bone or two. But just like humans, canines have different preferences when it comes to their personal pick for the best dog bed. Some might require the support of a firm memory foam mattress. Other pups will prefer a fluffy donut-shaped dog bed they can burrow into.

No matter what type of sleeping arrangement your pooch prefers, we’ve compiled picks for the best dog bed for every pupper—and for your style. That includes sleek wooden dog beds that blend seamlessly with your decor—and can even double as end tables. There are also plenty of washable options to keep your dog’s bed clean. Plus, you can customize your bed pick with your pup’s name, so everyone knows who’s really king or queen of the house. These canine cushions are so cozy that your furry companion might even finally stop stealing your bed.
