Dog’s love to snuggle and take up room on the couch. At least, I know that my dog does!
She even gets sassy if we try to make her get up, huffing and puffing as she lays down on the floor instead.
That’s why I decided to get her a dog sofa bed of her own, that way she didn’t feel like she had to take up room on our couch and she still has a comfortable place to lay down and be with the family.

Having a space for your dog to lounge and sleep is important, not just for their happiness but for their overall health.
I know there can be a lot of different options out there for dog sofa beds and couches, so I’ve taken the time to sift through the pages.
I’ve taken the time to narrow down the search for these ultra comfy sleeping spaces, keep reading to find which one would be best for your pup!
My top 3 choices for dog sofa beds are:
FurHaven Orthopedic CertiPur Foam Bed
This bed is certified with the CertiPUR foam, guaranteed to be ultra comfy and is also water resistant.
Waterproof liner with a memory foam and poly fiber cushion interior.
PetMate La-Z-Boy Newton Sofa
Attractive and good for larger dogs. Removable and washable cover.
FurHaven Orthopedic CertiPUR-US Certified Foam Pet Bed
The FurHaven Orthopedic Foam Pet Beds are truly a nice design.
They have a bolstered sofa like edge that supports their head and neck while also creating a snuggly and super comfy design, making your pup feel warm and safe. The cooling gel foam helps to wick away heat, keeping your pup cool and comfortable while they sleep, promoting a more restful sleep.
The outer cover comes off with one zip and can be thrown into the washer.
It is water resistant, but it is not fully waterproof.
If your pet is prone to having accidents on their bed or you worry about it getting wet, then finding one with an actual waterproof liner would be best for your situation.
Note that Furhaven does not recommend using this bed if:
- you have a puppy that is going through a teething phase or
- if you have a dog that enjoys destroying things.
This bed doesn’t hold up well to dogs with rough tendencies.
This pet sofa looks remarkably like a miniature couch for your dog.
Which I suppose is exactly what they were going for.
The main cushion is filled with a polyfiber and shredded memory foam, guaranteed to be comfortable for your dogs joints and maintain a restful sleep.
The sofa bed is protected by a waterproof liner, keeping the inner filling clean and free of any liquids that may accidentally get on it.
The faux leather is also protected by a durable mesh that can be easily spot cleaned and should be strong enough to withstand some chewing.
Many reviews do state that you should probably order a larger size than you would think you needed.
Some people felt that it was smaller than expected.
Enchanted Home Pet Ultra Plush Snuggle Pet Sofa
Another that actually looks like a couch is the Enchanted Home Pet Sofa.
This cute little dog bed is available only in a small size and in a dark grey.
Most breeds that would fit are the small or tiny breed dogs like the miniature poodle, shih tzu or yorkie sizes.
They can curl up or stretch out, the raised sides fit well for many different sleeping positions.
Many people really enjoy the aesthetic of the bed as well as their pet’s desire to sleep on it instead of their couch.
Enchanted Home Pet Rosie Sofa
The Home Pet Rosie Sofa is another adorable couch like dog bed from the company Enchanted.
This dog couch bed also has a very clean look that should match most home decors.
The round shape is perfect for dogs that prefer the curled up sleeping positions.
They recommend a weight range no higher than 30 lbs, and say that it is best for medium to small breed dogs.
The cushion comes with a removable liner that can quickly be taken off and thrown in the wash.
Unfortunately it is not waterproof or water resistant.
Petmate La-Z-Boy Newton Sofa
Talk about a dog sofa!
This dog sofa bed made by Petmate and La-Z-Boy is a spitting image of a couch, it will surely attract your dog’s and company’s attention at its super cute and comfortable design.
This couch comes in one design and size.
It’s elevated design makes it easy for dogs to hop on and off, plus it helps keep them cool in the warmer months or off the cold floors when it’s winter.
The bolstered 3 sides allow for extra head and neck support while also providing a feeling of safety and comfort.
The single cushion does have a removable cover for easy washing, however, it is not completely water resistant.
La-Z-Boy Bartlett Sofa Dog Bed
Another sofa bed made from Petmate and La-Z-Boy, this is guaranteed to be ultra comfortable while adding some style to the living room decor.
The sleek couch will look great and your kids will probably enjoy sitting on it too.
It’s elevated legs make it easy for bigger dogs to step up and down, and can accommodate any sleeping position. It is large enough for most to sprawl out, curl up or lean. The bolstered edges make a great head rest and neck support for those who enjoy somewhere to lay their furry head.
The main cushion has a removable cover, but the rest of the upholstery would need to be spot cleaned if it becomes soiled.
I really love the addition of the pocket on the back so you can keep toys put away.
Keet Fluffy Deluxe Pet Bed Sofa
This cute, chocolate colored couch will compliment many homes with smaller dogs under 25 lbs. The Keet Fluffy Deluxe Pet Sofa is adorable and comfortable.
It will certainly please most of our littler canine companions and satisfy even the pickiest of pooches.
Many buyers say that their dog loves it and looks forward to bedtime. Hopefully this will keep tensions over who’s spot it was on the couch to a minimum.
I know my dog can get grumpy when I tell her to move over!
If you have a messy dog, then maybe this couch isn’t the best idea.
The cushion has a cover that can be removed and washed; the leatherette bolsters would need to be wiped down in order to clean it.
Enchanted Home Pet Panache Sofa
The super stylish Pet Panache sofa made by Enchanted is another favorite among owners and dogs.
Many people love its look, plus their dog’s can’t get enough of lounging around all day on their brand new couch.
No one’s going to kick them off of this sofa!
It’s adorable curved frame and chocolate color can match many different home decors, while also appealing to your dog’s comfortability.
There is also a pocket on the back for holding toys and bones.
This dog sofa does have a removable and washable cover, but the rest of the furniture would need to be spot cleaned.
This bed is best for small and medium sized dogs.
Enchanted Home Pet Sofa Quicksilver Medium
There are many pet sofas out there for smaller dogs, but Home Pet Sofa is a medium sized couch for small to medium dogs that looks adorable.
It should make your pet happy and appeal to many different home aesthetics.
It’s high bolsters are ultra comfy and would suit a pet who likes to lay flat or sleep curled up.

Enchanted Home Brisbane Tufted Pet Sofa
Another medium sized sofa dog bed made by enchanted. This Brisbane Tufted Pet Sofa is adorable and stylish.
It’s high quality leatherette looks great in any home and will also not collect as much hair as an upholstered bed.
The high legs keep your pet off the floor and away from drafts. The leatherette is easy to keep clean and can be simply wiped down when dirty.
MSMASK Elevated Dog Bed Frame
This is not a complete dog bed, it is just a frame.
I wanted to make sure we understood that first.
This is a high quality frame and storage area for your dog’s bed to go on top of. Much like the concept of our own bed frames!
You can easily pair this sleek looking product with a flat dog bed mattress.
Many owners say that it is easy to put together and looks great with their dog sleeping in their bed on top of it.
The roomy drawers underneath allow for plenty of storage for toys and bones too!
Even though this isn’t actually a bed, this would be a great addition to one that you already have if you were needing to elevate your dog’s sleeping area.
Sometimes when our canine companions get older, it can be more difficult to get off of a bed that is on the floor and jumping up onto our furniture is also difficult and hard on their joints.
Sofa beds and elevated frames are a wonderful way of making their sleeping space more comfortable in general while also alleviating some of those aches and pains that they get as they age through life.
Yes, these items can be expensive.
But as long as your dog doesn’t have a terrible chewing habit, these pieces of furniture could be great for their bodies and sleeping habits, while also looking fashionable with your home’s living room decor.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are always some questions that seem to be asked a lot about dog beds and sofas.
Like, which kind should I get or why should I get a sofa bed over a flat bed that goes on the floor?
How do you know what size to get?
So many things to wonder before pulling the trigger and purchasing an expensive sofa for your dog.
Why should I get a sofa bed over a regular bed?
This is an excellent question. I like to suggest that owners purchase elevated beds, such as sofa beds for dogs that are older or breeds that are prone to orthopedic or back issues.
These beds are a few inches off the ground for your dog to easily get up, instead of having to hoist themselves up.
This is easier on their joints and bodies.
Also providing them with a space of their own that isn’t as tall as your own couch or bed is much easier for them to get to.
No more worries about them injuring their backs or legs getting onto the human couch anymore.
What size should I purchase for my dog?
Always assume that you should go up a size, or read the reviews thoroughly to see if there are any size comparisons with other people’s dogs.
I think that defaulting to going a size bigger than you assume necessary to be better practice.
I would be really sad if I got the bed out of the box and realized that it was way too small.
Not to mention trying to package it back up and return it would be a pain.
What material should the sofa bed be made of?
That is honestly about personal preference.
I base a lot of what I purchase on how easily I think it will be to clean up.
I find that having a removable cover for the main cushion is a must and the material should be one that is easy to spot clean if it can’t be taken off and washed.
