Our Top 3 Picks
Dog teepee beds have quickly become the next stylish, trendy and decorative dog bed options. Also known as tent beds, you can find many sizes to fit your dog and maybe even one large enough to accommodate you (but that may require a human teepee)!
They can be very comfortable and can shield your dog when he’s feeling shy or wants some privacy. There are very cute designs that can blend in well with your interior décor. Relatively easy to set up, these tents could be your dog’s main sleeping bed, or just one to relax on to be closer to you.
You might think buying a dog teepee bed is the same as buying a dog bed, however true that may be, there are still hidden aspects of the process. We will introduce some of the best ones we have seen available for you to take a look at.

Dog Teepee Bed Buyer’s Guide
So, we have convinced you to purchase a teepee bed for your dog. Now we will walk you through what features to look for to ensure safety and durability. They are stylish designs that provide your dog with an enclosed sleeping space that could ease their anxiety. What else do they do and what should we keep an eye on?
What to Look for When Buying Dog Teepee Beds?
Non-Slip Floor Cover
To keep it from moving and dissuading your dog to drag the tent around, a non-slip floor cover/mat is something to consider. It also prevents him from sliding and crashing into the wall when he’s inbounding into the tent in all his enthusiasm.
Most options come with curtains for the choice of privacy or to air out the interior. Try to look for products that have a button, tie or toggle to keep the curtains open.
Safe materials (the more natural the better) are the next feature to look out for. Narrow down your choices to designs with a 100% cotton canvas and real wood poles. If the tent is white, this usually means it is free of dyes, which makes it safer.
Many options are also mildew resistant and non-flammable, which is an important safety feature. You can never be too careful, especially for those who want to take the tent outside once in a while to a backyard barbecue.
Having to assemble something yourself is daunting enough, you don’t need the process to be overly complicated. Look for ones that are easy to set up with clear instructions, and easy to assemble parts. This is especially important when you are trying to take the teepee apart for cleaning.
The cushion included, or not included will be the gauge for how comfortable your dog will be. If the teepee does not come with a cushion, we would definitely suggest adding one and make sure the cushions are thick enough to keep the pressure off joints.
Easy to Clean
Your dog has the tendency of ruining/dirtying anything he touches. So, to have something that is mostly white, you must make sure it’s easy to clean. Hand washing these teepees will ensure the quality, but most are machine washable.
Anything extra the manufacturer throws in to entice you could be a bonus. Some might include a little blackboard, extra storage pockets, decorative flags, pennants, and even a string of lights.
Hopefully, after reading this article, you have a clearer idea of which teepee is best. Most of them are made for smaller dogs, which is why we have included one for kids that would also make a cozy home for your big fur baby.
They are easily transportable and easy to store due to the soft structure and can provide your dog with a sense of safety. Not to mention, it will add a touch of flair to your décor!
Traditional dog teepees are usually made of cotton, which doesn’t make them waterproof. There are options for outdoor use but they won’t be as comfortable and would resemble a traditional tent. Only take the teepee outdoors when it’s a nice day.
Did You Know
Dogs that are avid chewers won’t make good teepee tenants. If your dog is of the appropriate size, has a calm temperament, and generally takes care of his belongings, then a teepee tent could be great!
