12 Dog Beds As Cute As Your Puppy

Celebrate National Puppy Day with these design-savvy dog beds.

Related To:

As a puppy owner and lover, I’ve got a major case of the warm fuzzies today. Don’t get me wrong — I love my rambunctiously adorable pooch every day, but today she gets extra affection. It’s National Puppy Day, and I’m feeling sentimental about our decision to adopt her six months ago. Today’s holiday, founded in 2006, is meant to highlight the love and happiness puppies bring to our lives. It’s also a day dedicated to saving orphaned puppies and educating the public about adopting furry friends. Thinking about visiting a shelter? Check out our tips for adopting a dog.

If you’re like me and already have a pup, you’re likely looking to spoil them today. I love a good excuse to go shopping for my best gal. Unfortunately though, I’ve found it’s difficult to locate pet products that are on-trend and design-oriented. Nothing kills a living room design quite like a huge, old dog bed that clashes with everything. So, today I’ve dedicated my time to finding design-savvy dog beds for those of you who love your home and your pet. Check them out, and see what you think.
