Good, better, best: Dog beds big enough for your Great Dane

Non-pet parents just don’t get it! Shopping for your dog is a task that calls for care, especially when your pooch is picky. Owners of Great Danes, though, are all too familiar with the frustrations of shopping for their fur baby. Not only do they need to cater to their dog’s preferences and personality, but they also need to find something large enough to actually be used! Dog beds for large dogs are especially tricky to track down — but we’re here to help!

Although every pup has his own needs and priorities, these are certainly some of the best large dog beds available. They’re all available in extra-large sizes, so you’re more likely to find something your gentle giant can actually comfortably sleep in. (Finally!)

Good: Harmony Cozy Cottage Gray Lounger Dog Bed

  • Machine washable
  • Bolstered walls can support your dog’s head
  • Features a soft faux-shearling surface

With dimensions of 48 by 36 inches (plus 6 inches of height thanks to all that fluff), this bed will let your big buddy rest comfortably — and stylishly. The bolstered walls of this bed give your dog the perfect place to rest his head while he melts into the luxurious faux-shearling material that covers it. Don’t worry, the bed is washable, too!

With high-quality polyfill stuffing giving this bed its height and cushion, you don’t need to worry about the mattress losing its shape. Even your largest pup will sprawl out with ease. So cozy!

Better: FurHaven Ultra Plush Luxe Lounger Orthopedic Cat & Dog Bed

  • Giant size measures 42 x 53 inches
  • Features two layers of cushioning
  • Good for older and arthritic dogs

Large dog owners rejoice! You can finally have zero doubts about the size of a dog bed now that you’ve met this one; the FurHaven Ultra Plush Lounger comes in six sizes, including giant, which measures 42 inches in length by 53 inches across. The product description names this bed as ideal for pups up to 180 pounds, which includes many Great Danes.

With its two layers of cushioning and protection, including 9 inches of medical-grade foam, you can rest assured knowing that your dog is cozy and comfy. Because of its orthopedic padding and contoured, step-on shape, older or arthritic dogs will love this bed just as much. Plus, the cover is washable!

Best: PetFusion Ultimate Lounge Memory Foam Bolster Cat & Dog Bed

  • Features 6 inches of memory foam
  • Outer cover is waterproof and tear-proof
  • Bolsters made with recycled polyfill

Now, your best friend can enjoy the luxury of memory foam, too! The jumbo-sized bed includes six inches of memory foam surrounded by a waterproof lining, though the outer cover is both waterproof and tear-proof. If an accident does happen, the cover has a slow-absorption technology that keeps any wetness from soaking the entire bed. Just take this cover off and toss it in the washing machine whenever you need to.

Your beloved pup’s head will feel like it’s floating on air with this bed’s bolsters, which are stuffed with recycled polyfill. The entire bed — both foam and bolsters — fits snugly inside the cotton-and-polyester twill cover, making it both durable and adorable!

With these three popular dog beds, your Great Dane can snooze the night — or day — away in peace. You can relax, too, knowing you made a smart, worthwhile investment for your pet. Nothing says home quite like a bed, after all, so it’s got to be good! Especially for larger breeds who are prone to joint issues later in life, a comfortable bed will make all the difference in the world.
