This faux fur sofa is filled with heavy duty foam for comfort and support, and the cover is easy to remove and wash – good news for those with mucky pups. It comes in three different sizes and is available in three colours: brown, black and grey.

The Knuffelwuff Cuddly Dog Bed gets excellent reviews on Amazon (4.9 out of 5 stars), and is super stylish as well as being comfortable for your dog.
The luxurious deep sides will keep your dog cosy, especially if your house is draughty, and are firm and supportive enough to allow them to rest their head. As well as looking good, it's durable and very well made - so should last a good few years.
4. P & L Superior Pet Beds Heavy Duty Oval Waterproof Softee Bed
When your dog loves to get wet and dirty, you need a bed that's durable and easy to clean. This one is made from hard-wearing waterproof material but still provides plenty of comfort thanks to its thick base cushion.
Dirt and debris brushes off easily and it can be wiped with a damp cloth – and when it needs a good wash, remove the cover and shove it in the machine.
5. Rosewood Jumbo Cord/ Plush Dog Bed
If you are on a budget or only have a small dog, the Rosewood Jumbo Cord is a comfy option that won't set you back too much.
It comes with a deep inner cushion and the removable cover washes well. Just be aware that the sides are quite floppy, so it might not be right if you want something with firm support.
