A dog bed can be one of the more expensive purchases you make for your pet—but how much is too much to spend? If you’ve ever had a pricey dog bed destroyed by sharp teeth, or simply ignored in favor of your couch, you know the value of spending just a little less. Picking out a bed that fits your dog’s needs but isn’t absurdly expensive can be quite a challenge, but luckily, we’ve discovered some of the best deals for quality, cheap dog beds.
We set out to explore affordable dog beds in a range of styles and price points, looking for those with the most glowing reviews and the best durability. Whether you’re looking for a chew-resistant bed or one with orthopedic support for an aging dog, we’ve got you covered.
15 Excellent Budget-Friendly Dog Beds
Below you’ll find our picks for the best low-cost options that give the best bang for your dog bed bucks.
Bark Box‘s dog bed combines a memory and gel foam interior with a plushy machine-washable exterior so it’s super comfy on joints. It comes in several size and color options and includes a waterproof liner. Bonus—this bed comes with a squeaker toy.
Verified Review: “We tested this bed at our Rover office and found that our canine coworkers quickly gravitate to it as a napping spot, including a senior beagle and a chew-prone terrier mix, Vera.
The gray color is quite plain and the bed looks a bit thin coming out of the box, but it’s surprisingly sturdy and soft for the price. It didn’t seem that it would stand up to heavy chewers, but so far, it’s done well with Vera, who’s known to nibble up beds. We can easily imagine washing it, too, as it would fit handily into an average washing machine, unlike some of the other washable beds we’ve tried. Not only that, but the bed comes with a cute small toy—which Vera promptly slobbered all over.”
Supportive and ideally-shaped for dogs who like to sleep snuggled in; the soft shag material of this affordable dog bed also retains heat and can even remind some dogs of snuggling up with a littermate. Best of all, this bed is entirely machine-washable and dryer-safe.
If you have an older or injured dog, an orthopedic support bed can help ease their aches and pains while they sleep. Along with a three-year warranty, this bed has four inches of foam support, a cover made of soft, hair- and dirt-resistant velour, and a waterproof encasement, making it a very high-quality, but cheap to buy, dog bed.
These Furhaven dog beds are available in so many varieties, you’re sure to find just the right fit for your pup.

The cover is also removable for easy cleaning.
Who says you have to sacrifice style to find a high-quality, cheap-budget dog bed? With its tufted and modern design, this Frisco dog bed is both stylish and functional. (Note: some reviewers have mentioned that the bed’s firmness is similar to that of a pillow, so it may not be the best choice for older dogs who’d benefit from more support.)
Although there’s no such thing as totally chew-proof and cheap dog beds, this elevated perch comes close. Its durable easy-to-clean mesh material and iron frame are pretty darn chew-resistant. The style makes it a great cooling bed and a breeze to clean.
