The French Bulldog, also known as the Frenchie has always been an incredibly sought after breed.
They became a breed of their own partly due to British lace workers relocating to France with their English Bulldogs, and partly due to the trend for breeders in the UK to send their English Bulldog runts, and dogs with faults over to France – i.e., dogs with ears that stood up!
Which bed is that you might be wondering? More energetic than their English cousin, they enjoy an active lifestyle, but once all of the walking is done, they like nothing more than lying on one of the best dog beds for French Bulldogs!
Well, much of that comes down to personal preference and aesthetic but with hundreds, if not thousands of dog beds to choose from – we want to make your job as a pet parent easier by narrowing it down to just five.
1. Best Friends by Sheri OrthoComfort Deep Dish Cuddler
One of the most adorable and cozy options in our list of the best dog beds for French Bulldogs!
As if Frenchies weren’t cute enough, imagine yours snuggled into this bed with his little ears poking over the top of the brightly colored fleece!
Unlike many dog beds that use a second-hand filling that tend to lose their oomph and height very quickly, the Best Friends bed is constructed from only the finest pet safe materials, and they utilize a Virgin AirLoft filling that can last three times longer than the second-hand stuffing options.
If you have an especially messy pooch, or they just tend to molt a lot – then this bed will be a lifesaver!
Not only can you throw it in the washer and the dryer, but you can also vacuum this incredibly easily between full-on washes!
Comes in quite the range of colors and fabric options to suit any type of home decor including beige, brown, dark chocolate, fuschia, pink, grey, teal, tidepool, and wheat.
- Premium quality
- Stuffing stays fluffy 3 x longer than regular beds
- Generously filled
- Water and dirt resistant base
- Machine washable and tumble dryer safe
- A little wobbly
- High back can sag
- Runs small
- Some faulty beds have undone seams
- Not suitable for dogs that scratch before lying down
2. K&H Pet Products Ortho Bolster Sleeper Pet Bed
This medical grade orthopedic foam dog bed is a firm base for your French Bulldog to rest his little (well, big!) head.
The cover is machine washable and tumble dryer safe.
However – the cover isn’t the best quality and can fall apart, so it’s best to use the most delicate setting on your washer and dryer or wash by hand.
Incredible bolster cushions provide your Frenchie with tons of support and might leave him wanting to stay in bed all day.
Well, who are we kidding, he’s probably a bundle of energy that bounces from here to there – but this should make him stay in bed at least a few minutes longer on a morning!
You can order this bed in a rich brown color, or a classy gray depending on your preference, and in fact – why not buy it to match your Frenchie to hide any molting and save yourself a little work!
As with any dog bed, they aren’t indestructible, so if your dog tends to rip his bed apart – this won’t withstand his chewing and clawing.
- Medical grade orthopedic foam
- Removable machine washable and tumble dryer safe over
- One year warranty
- Bolster cushions
- Rich color options
- Not suitable for dogs that attack their beds
- Cover dies before bed itself
- Isn’t as soft as expected
- Doesn’t work as well for dogs over 20lbs
- Bolster is better than the main bed area
3. Bone Dry DII Lattice Pet Bed
This designer dog bed comes in four stylish designs, and for the patriots among us, get ready for the most patriotic dog bed design of all time – the US flag!
If that’s a little too much for you, you could always opt for the incredibly tasteful and rather Martha Stewart-esque navy lattice or gray lattice design.
The side panels of this bed are incredibly durable and strong, providing your dog with something sturdy to lie against, and also privacy from the outside world – and especially from the cat!
However, if your French Bulldog has mobility issues such as arthritis – the step up into this bed might not be possible, or comfortable for him.
One of the sturdiest fabrics, Oxford fabric, has been used in the construction of this dog bed, and can easily be wiped clean, or zipped off of the padding to put in the washing machine.
Another great thing about the bed from Bone Dry is the fact that this company offers a wide range of pet products, all of which have been exquisitely designed.
- Incredible design
- Made with durable fabric
- Side blocks for additional support
- Ultra-soft bed for a comfy pooch
- Comes in four color options
- Somewhat difficult to wash thoroughly
- Sizing runs small
- Sides are very tall so not ideal for dogs with mobility issues
- Padding isn’t evenly distributed
- Colors are made garish in person
4. Brindle Soft Shredded Memory Foam Dog Bed
One of the best beds for your French Bulldog, especially if they happen to have any joint issues.
The bed is pretty low down to the ground and provides a great deal of support for your arthritic pooch to lie down in comfort, and hopefully relieve their pain.
The shredded memory foam filling is also incredible in terms of breathability, so your dog won’t overheat from lying here all day!
A super-soft microsuede cover not only gives your dog a snuggly zone but also collects all of their molting hair so that it doesn’t make its way all-around your house!
Simply vacuum the bed, or remove the cover and throw in the washing machine when it needs a clean.
An unfortunate side effect of using the microsuede as a cover is that it isn’t the strongest material, and means that it can be torn easily if your dog has an excitable episode.
If your pooch is prone to excitability, it might be best to look for a dog bed with a more durable fabric such as Oxford fabric.
- Shredded memory foam filling
- Microsuede cover
- Supportive consistency ideal for joints
- Ideal size for use in a crate
- Very easy to chew through
- Memory foam fill isn’t even and clumps together
- Zipper isn’t the best quality
- Harder than expected
- Cover isn’t the strongest material
5. Orthoperdic Egg-Crate Nesting Pet Bed
This trendy pet bed comes in three chic color options, with brown, white and grey in a modern designer pattern.
There is an easy to remove cover on this bed that is machine washable. What’s more, is that this bed comes with a 1-year warranty. Not only this but it is also an orthopedic bed! Great for older dogs with aching joints and pain. It is also covered in fleece making it ultra-comfortable for your pooch.
Thick padding is great for giving your dog support and help to keep him warm in the colder months, with thickly padded bolsters, so your dog feels like he’s sleeping with a great big hug holding onto him the whole time.
- Orthopedic bed for a comfy sleep
- Fleece lining
- Teflon protective cover
- Long-lasting bed
- Fabric can tear easily
- Not suitable for dogs that chew

Lucky French Bulldogs, we had such great beds to choose from for them that we ended up with two winners!
The first of our two co-champions was the Best Friends by Sheri OrthoComfort Deep Dish Cuddler, which we chose for its incredible design, high-quality materials, and snuggle-ability.
And our second winner was the DII Bone Dry Modern & Fashionable Padded Pet Bed, perhaps the chicest dog bed we’ve yet to see, they also stood out from the others on our list due to their use of the hard-wearing Oxford fabric.
