Orthopedic Dog Bed by Barney Bed
BENEFITS OF MEMORY FOAM DOG BEDS
Made mostly from memory foam, orthopedic dog beds are designed to provide maximum comfort and support to dogs.
As memory foam is a pressure-relieving material, orthopedic dog beds protect joints and bones, and offer improved mobility as well as relief from pain – all great benefits for senior dogs in particular.
That being said, memory foam orthopedic dog beds aren’t just for older dogs! If you want quality support, comfort and durability no matter your dog’s size (beds range from S to XXL) – look no further.
WHAT WE LOVED: BARNEY BED ORTHOPEDIC DOG BED
- Excellent quality memory foam mattress for orthopedic and joint support
- The bed design is framed by memory foam boulders, which are basically built-in cushions (our boys love to rest their head on them!)
- Designed to be scratch-resistant (a big plus for us, as Ziggy likes to dig for treasure in his bed)
- These memory foam beds can be styled with on-trend bouclé bed covers to suit your interior (pictured)

Rattan Dog Bed by Koko Collective
WHY CHOOSE A RATTAN DOG BED?
If an eco-friendly Australian dog bed is top of your list, then rattan dog beds are a great choice – not to mention ultra stylish!
Timeless and versatile with a carefree coastal vibe, it’s no wonder rattan furniture has been ‘in’ for some time now – and why rattan dog beds are highly sought in Australia. Particularly for discerning pet parents who love natural furniture or a bohemian-meets-modern aesthetic.
Rattan furniture is known for being exceptionally strong and durable too. Not only will a stylish rattan dog bed compliment your decor, it’s a designer dog bed you can be sure will stand the test of time.
WHAT WE LOVED: KOKO COLLECTIVE RATTAN DOG BED
- Blends modern, bohemian aesthetics with practical design
- Solid and sturdy frame, yet lightweight and portable
- Elevated dog bed (7 centimetres from the ground)
- Includes a firm, comfortable cushion with removable double-sided cover
- Koko Collective is an Australian, female-led business (the kind we love to support!)

Calming Dog Bed
Calming dog beds feel just like a big warm hug for your dog – and it’s exactly why they’re a popular choice in Australia, particularly for dogs prone to stress and separation anxiety (like our Sunny who has a few anxiety triggers).
Calming dog beds work by creating the same sense of comfort and safety your dog experienced as a puppy within their litter. Designs typically feature soft textures such as plush faux fur, extra padding they can sink into, and a round dog bed design they can properly curl up in.
While some calming dog beds come with a removable cover, others are easily machine washable as they are – a big plus!

Elevated Dog Bed
There are many reasons why dogs like elevated dog beds, which can be summed up in one word: comfort.
Pups love raised dog beds because of the temperature control and orthopedic support they offer. Rather than having to lay down and stand back up like they would in a classic dog bed, elevated dog beds are better as they allow dogs to step in and out of their bed quickly and comfortably. This ultimately reduces strain on their bodies, which is beneficial particularly for senior dogs with arthritis.
Another reason why you should use a raised dog bed? If your pup is a chewer! Unlike stuffed dog beds, elevated dog beds feature taut, hard-wearing material designed to offer your dog cushion-like comfort.

Dog Sofa / Lounge Dog Bed
Does your dog act more like a lounge lizard than, you know, a dog? If your pup is all for Netflix and chill, then a luxury lounge dog bed (also known as a dog bed couch or dog sofa) is the perfect choice.
Lounge dog beds come in a range of styles and designs, and are a great option for style-conscious pet parents who want an Australian dog bed that compliments their decor.
In addition to a stylish design, the best designer dog sofas are those that offer maximum cushioned comfort to your pup, while making cleaning a cinch with a removable cover – a trifecta covered by our top pick in this category!

Cave Dog Bed
Does your dog tend to burrow, or prefer to snuggle up under the blankets? If so, then we’d bet a cave dog bed would be your pup’s numero-uno pick when it comes to luxury dog beds in Australia.
Many cave dog beds feature a hooded or blanket design to give your pup an extra comfy space to sleep, relax and feel secure. This ability to reduce anxiety in dogs is why cave dog beds are so popular, and are also considered to be calming dog beds.
Because when your pup is afraid of a thunderstorm or feeling anxious, having their own cosy, secret den to snuggle up in can really do wonders.

Pillow Dog Bed
The best thing about pillow dog beds? They’re multi-purpose! Pillow dog beds can easily be picked up and placed wherever you need them – in your living room, in your car – even as a cushion for your dog’s crate.
Available in a variety of shapes (round, square or rectangular) and fillings (polyester fiberfill, cedar shavings or foam-based cushions) if you’re looking for an Australian dog bed that provides good orthopedic support, we recommend a high quality pillow dog bed made from memory foam (see our top pick below!)
Our favourite pillow dog beds not only support your pup while complimenting your decor, they also make cleaning easy-peasy with a machine washable slipcover.

Teepee Dog Bed
Is it not the height of pupper luxury for your dog to have their own glamping quarters?
Teepee dog beds are popular for their stylish look. But they also offer the combined benefits of cave dog beds and calming dog beds, by providing a confined, cosy space for your pup to feel comfortable and secure.
Lightweight and easy to transport, dog teepee beds can also be moved from room to room easily, or folded up and tucked away in small spaces if needed.
Did we mention how cute and chic they are?

Dog Bed for Travel
If your dog’s usual sleeping quarters aren’t practical to travel with, a dog travel bed is the answer!
Whether you’re going on a road trip, staying in a pet-friendly hotel or going camping, you’ll want to bring a dog bed for travel that is comfortable for your pup, yet lightweight and easy to transport.
If your dog is a particularly nervous traveller, they’ll need an extra cosy, familiar space to keep them calm on the road. Our top pick for this category offers 2-in-1 functionality by being both a comforting travel bed in the car, and a portable luxury dog bed for use at your destination.

Dog Bed for Small Dogs
Shout out to the smol pups!
All dogs – no matter their size – like to feel safe and secure when getting their beauty sleep. And although your small-statured best friend thinks they’re as big as a Saint Bernard, that’s no reason to splurge on a big dog bed.
Simply put, small dog beds are best for small dogs. A bed that is small enough to touch and surround your dog’s body on all sides will make them feel snuggled and safe, and support their small frame.
Ideal luxury dog beds for small dogs will be compact and space-saving, offer warmth, comfort and security to your pup – all the while keeping your interior style in mind.

Dog Bed for Large Dogs
Larger-than-life pooches deserve to be pampered too! But finding good quality luxury dog beds in Australia for large dogs isn’t quite as easy as it is for smaller breeds.
Large dogs have large frames, which need to support a larger amount of weight – exactly why big dog breeds are more prone to health and mobility issues. So, it’s important to make sure any dog bed for a large breed is big enough to provide ample comfort and support.
Ranging from size M up to XXL, the Designer Pet Beds collection by Indie Boho Pets features plenty of stylish options perfect for large dogs (many with two-sided prints you can easily flip over for a fresh new look!)
Be sure to check out their dog bed size guide to know which size is right for your pup.
