Like most people, one of my favorite things to do after a long week is just curl up on the couch and watch a great movie. So, why wouldn’t a dog want to do the same thing? They do actually make couches for dogs, but a lot of people don’t know that.
They’re like beds, but they’re usually a little more stylish and expensive, and a little less versatile. But they’re a great thing to have around the house, and they’re sure to catch guests’ attention when you have people over. I mean, how many people let their dog have their own couch?
PROS AND CONS OF GETTING A DOG COUCH
There are plenty of reasons why you should and shouldn’t get a dog couch. The truth is that it just depends on what type of person you are and your relationship with your dog. We’re going to give you the complete rundown of the pros and cons of a dog couch, and then we’ll even give you some of our top choices for dog couches. So sit back on your couch and relax while we break it down for you!
Dog couches are very fun and very cozy.
They’re a great way for your dog to have its own space in your living room with the others without destroying the furniture. Even if you do let them on your furniture, it’s still a great way to let them have their own space that’s outside of their kennel that only they can use.
They’re great accent pieces.
Some manufacturers go completely overboard when making dog couches. There are some really, really good looking dog couches out there that will go well with your home. They can be very stylish and just a cute piece to have to talk about when you have company over.
It gives your dog more space that is theirs.
Sure your dog has her kennel, but it’s always good to allow them to have their own space they can retreat to when they just need to be alone (yes, dogs need alone time as well). This is a great way to give them another piece of furniture in the house that is theirs.
They can be an easy alternative for a dog who is aging or injured.
Some dogs get to the point in their life where they aren’t able to crawl on a couch anymore because they’re getting too old. This is a nice way to give your dog their own couch so they don’t feel as distant from you.
They’re cool, but not strictly necessary.
It’s not likely that any dog needs a couch. They’re just a fun way to let them have something in the house that they can relax with.
They can be very expensive.
And for something that isn’t necessary, it’s hard for some people to justify buying the couch. Even though we think that most people love the dog couch they buy, it can be a big purchase for some as some couches cost a few hundred dollars. There are less expensive versions, however.
They can also take up a lot of space.
Some of the larger couches truly are just like mini couches. They’re pretty big in some instances, so it’s hard for some people to find room for another decently large piece of furniture that isn’t necessary; however it’s likely that you won’t regret the decision after buying it. It all depends on how large your dog is and how much space you have!
There are plenty of other arguments that could be made against or in favor of dog couches. However, this is the gist. What do you think? Are you ready to move forward? Great! We have some excellent dog beds that we’ve reviewed and we think there will be something for every dog. Enjoy!
This is an incredibly well-made piece of furniture that definitely stands above some of the rest. It’s a smaller bed, but it’s of incredible quality.
It’s hand-made with a very strong wood frame. It’s smaller, so it only support smaller dogs up to 15lbs. It’s a really great priced bed compared to others. The price is right around the median at just under $90. We think this is a great price for a couch for your smaller dog.
It’s made of high-quality leatherette, and it’s not likely to get destroyed by your dog unless it’s intentional. Did we mention it’s stylish as heck as well?
Well it is, and it comes in a few different colors that will work well for any living room. Overall it’s a great bed for a great price, and we definitely recommend it!
This is one of the best-selling dog beds on the market. It comes at an extraordinary price that we feel is on-par with the quality.
It’s a smaller bed made with faux leather, but it’s very, very comfy, and it can be used in many different ways. The cover is removable and machine washable.
This is all but essential for a couch that you’re going to have in your living room. After months of your dog sitting on it, the couch is likely to start to smell. And you just can’t have that. It’s an absolutely great feature that this cover can come off and be washed.
Additionally, it comes with a polyester fiber will with cedar shavings that are scented. This will help keep the bed smelling much more pleasant than otherwise. So you won’t have to wash it as often.
This is a great, luxurious couch with plenty of extra features. First of all, it’s a really good looking couch that has a color that will likely match any room you decide to put it in.
It supports up to 50lbs, so it’s not the largest couch, but it is definitely made for a good, medium sized dog. It has a great little storage place in the back for your dogs toys. It’s absolutely adorable. This couch even comes with its own pillow!
The cover is removable and washable, so if you decide to put it in the living room, you will be able to remove it as needed and wash it so it doesn’t end up stinking up your living room! Overall for the price, it’s an excellent do couch, and your dog is sure to love it!
Like we said before, of course dog couches are necessary (usually), but is everything we do for our beloved pets necessary? I spoil our dog all the time. I don’t give her things because she needs them, it’s because I love her and want her to be comfy and happy. Alright, I get it, enough with the gushy stuff, right? But honestly, these are just fun additions to your house and to your family’s space that your dog can call hers.
