As someone who has had many dogs over the years and worked in the veterinary field for at least a decade, I know how dirty their beds can get.
If it’s not all the hair that accumulates, it’s going to be the drool or sometimes even urine or feces.
There is nothing more frustrating than not being able to remove the cover to wash it, and just having to pitch the whole bed in the trash. What a waste!
Machine Washable Dog Beds Last Longer!
I’ve done hours of research to help narrow down the options available for dog beds with removable covers. Because honestly, there shouldn’t be any other way!
If I spend 75$ or more on a dog bed, it should last more than one pee accident.
Many of them come with a cover that is soft and comfortable, with another inner liner that is waterproof to keep the foam or inner cotton layer moisture free.
Keeping the dog bed from getting wet is the first step in maintaining a fresh and clean smell.
However, it is important to double check before purchasing, not all beds have the super handy waterproof liner.
Under the waterproof liner is the inner core that should either be cotton or memory foam.
Let’s be real, cotton does not make for good support.
So going with a pet bed that has a foam interior should guarantee that it will be more comfortable than just some plain old cotton.
My Top 3 Dog Beds With Removable Covers Are:
The PetFusion Ultimate Orthopedic Dog Bed
I love the CertiPUR memory foam and inner waterproof liner to protect it.
Plus the firm bolsters make for great headrests!
The BedSure Orthopedic Memory Foam Dog Bed (for large dogs)
This dog bed is super thick and waterproof.
The 3” cushion is great for big dogs with aging joints.
The Original Calming Donut Dog Bed
Not waterproof but super comfortable and fuzzy pet bed.
Dogs who love to be snuggled or curled up will love this bed!
PetFusion Ultimate Orthopedic Dog Bed
The PetFusion’s Ultimate Orthopedic Dog Bed is one of the best beds that I found that offers a waterproof liner and machine washable cover.
Not to mention the memory foam interior with raised sides for head and neck support.
PetFusion isn’t afraid of providing the best quality for their clients and their doggos. After all, they are the ones sleeping on the bed!
This super comfy bed is sure to be your dog’s favorite place to relax and hang out, and hopefully will free up your couch or bed so that you have more room again.
Our older dogs will especially benefit from its comfortable design with them in mind.

Your dog will be ultra comfortable in a stylish looking bed that compliments the room.
Furhaven Orthopedic Memory Foam Bed
The Furhaven Orthopedic Memory Foam Beds are quite similar to the PetFusion one before it, but they are slightly different.
This brand also offers a soft and velvety washable cover with a waterproof inner line.
The core can be changed depending on what the owner is looking for.
These washable pet beds have a memory foam core and also a cooling gel memory foam for dogs that seem to get too hot at night.
It is also possible to just replace the dog bed’s outer cover if something happens to it, which is a convenient offer when your older pet is prone to accidents.
The Original Calming Donut Pet Dog Bed
This is a great bed for dogs that love to curl up in a ball or burrow into the blankets.
Because of its round shape and high sides, it provides your dog with a calming and self-soothing effect, like being hugged or snuggled.
The inner material is made from AirLoft fibers that are cushy and soft and envelopes your pet in a cuddly embrace.
It’s raised sides are also great for head and neck support and helps soothe aching and older joints.
This pet bed does not come with a removable and washable cover, however, the bottom is dirt and water resistant.
They say that if the bed becomes soiled, you can just toss the whole thing in the washing machine and it should come out good as new!

Another highly rated dog bed, this is one that will surely make your canine happy.

I also love that JoyElf likes to throw in their own touch by including a super cute bone shaped squeaky toy for your dog to play with!

BedSure Orthopedic Memory Foam Dog Bed For Large Dogs
Made by the same company, BedSure, this one, like in the title, comes in larger sizes.
Starting at medium, this dog bed should be big enough for most larger and giant breed dogs, including those over 120 lbs!
It has a memory foam interior that comes in two layers, one firm and one soft, that is guaranteed to please your pup! Not to mention the wonderful waterproof inner liner.
We all know that accidents happen and you certainly don’t want to be replacing dog beds left and right. That can get expensive!

The company BedSure also offers another style of dog bed where the mattress is actually an egg crate shaped foam instead of memory foam.
These large beds made from egg crate foam are meant to soothe aching joints while also allowing for extra air flow to keep your pet cool at night.
The dog bed’s outer layer comes off easily and can be thrown in the washer for a quick clean up.
There is no waterproof liner though.
So, if you feel like that is a necessity then check out another one of BedSure’s comfy pet beds that does come with the waterproof support.
Removable And Machine Washable Dog Bed Covers: Making Clean Up A Breeze
Washing your dog’s bed shouldn’t be something that you neglect doing because it’s a pain in the rear.
That’s why purchasing a dog bed that has a removable cover is the way to go when it comes to ease of clean up as well as comfort for your precious canine companion.
Plus, they should enjoy a fresh smelling and not smelly bed after you’ve run it through the wash.
Frequently Asked First Time Dog Owner Questions
While a dog bed may not be a necessity for some people, many first time dog owners want to find a comfortable place for their new friend to sleep.
Besides finding the perfect spot in the home for it, many owners wonder what size and material to get as well.
What size dog bed should I get?
I always say that you should assume you need a larger dog bed than you would expect.
If you really aren’t sure, just check reviews to see if any others say how large their dog is and see if you can compare them to your pet.
What kind of material should the bed be made of?
As far as material is concerned, just find something that seems comfortable. Honestly, dogs aren’t too picky, they will sleep on all kinds of things and not care too much.
As long as it’s soft-ish and cushy, your dog is sure to love it.
If you think that they would appreciate a suede or a fuzzy washable bed then just go with your intuition.
Where should I keep my dog’s bed?
When looking for the perfect spot to rest your dog’s bed, there are usually two places for dog beds.
One is in the bedroom with the owner (or in their crate if that’s where they sleep at night).
The other spot for dog bed is usually in the living room where the family spends time together. This is the best way to keep them off your furniture.
Have a place for them to sit and rest!
