There’s spoiling your dog, and then there’s making sure he’s comfortable. While the fur coat might protect them from the cold and make the sweater your wife bought for him unnecessary, dogs are only active about 20 percent of the day. And since they like to sleep anywhere from 13-18 hours, you’d probably want to make sure they’re comfortable even while they’re being totally lazy. That’s why it’s great that some of our favorite companies offer up top-of-the line solutions for making sure your best friend’s slumber is always pleasant.
You can get a bed, or you can get a tent. The choice is really up to you.

Part of a collaboration between famed fashion photographer Bruce Weber and the Detroit-based company, Shinola’s beds are filled with goose feather and covered with a water-resistant fabric that your dog will enjoy while getting his 15 hours of sleep a day. The beds range from $180-$230 and are offered in S, M, and L. But the best part is that the collection raises awareness for animal advocacy groups like the Michigan Humane Society and Best Friends.
This one will make you jealous of your pooch. The three-sided L.L. Bean dog couch provides cushion and support for your dog and includes a zipper that discourages chewing.
