Best Blankets for Dogs Reviewed & Rated for Quality
Even the best-behaved puppers can leave a whopping amount of hair behind on your furniture--not to mention dirt leftover from their romps at the dog park. And if you share the bed with your furry friends, you may find yourself needing to change your sheets every night.
But there’s a solution!
We’ve compiled a list of the best blankets for dogs that will help preserve your furniture, sheets, and snuggle time. Plus, these products are great for chilly nights in the kennel and for providing a sense of calm and protection to doggies with anxiety.
Criteria Used for Evaluation
When making this Ten Best List, we considered the sizing. All of the pet blankets that we feature come in different sizes. The size that you choose will depend on how you plan on using the blanket.
If you are planning on wrapping your dog in the blanket, we suggest choosing a size that corresponds with your dog’s size. We outline this in our first product review and in the Frequently Asked Questions section below. The same size suggestions go for use in your pet’s bed. If your pet has a small bed, go with a small blanket.
But if you are planning on using the product to lay over your own bedspread for preventing hair build-up when your dog snuggles with you during the night, or if you would like to protect pieces of furniture from the same fate, then we suggest going with the largest size of any of the products that we list.
Do pay attention to dimensions as some of the products on our list are smaller than they appear in the pictures.
It was important for us to focus on materials when making this list. We want to highlight products that are soft and cuddly while still being durable. And we also want to feature warm blankets that are still lightweight enough to be used year-round.
Plus, it was important to us that materials could be machine washed and at least tumble dried. Only one of the products on our list is not okayed to be machine washed and that is one of the waterproof blankets.
We work to feature products that are durable and that can hold up to heavy pet use.
While these items are for your pet, they are still going in your home so we wanted to make sure that we provided some fun color options as well as more neutral and classic color options so that you could find a fit for your home’s aesthetic.
When thinking about versatility, we considered where a product could be used and what it could be used for.
We love products that are good for use indoors and outdoors alike. We also love products that can serve as furniture protectors while also being great options for travel and crate use.
In terms of value, we worked to bring you products that were inexpensive yet still effective. The truth is, no matter how durable a blanket, pets are going to run through them and they are eventually going to stop coming completely clean.
So most of the products we feature are super affordable and will last for a year or so before needing to be replaced--depending on how messy your dog typically is and how rough they are on their accessories.

4. PetAmi Waterproof
The PetAmi Waterproof is one of the most premium options on our list, but it does what most others can not--it is waterproof! It is also one of the best warming blankets for dogs. This makes it an incredible option for those with puppies who aren’t quite potty trained and also for those older dogs who no longer have tons of control over their bladders.
Full Waterproof Membrane
The PetAmi Waterproof is one of the most incredible options on our list. If you have a pupper that has trouble controlling its bladder but you still need your daily dose of snuggles, this could be just the product for you.
One side of the blanket is topped with super soft and warming flannel fleece. The other side of the blanket is composed of even thicker sherpa fleece that is spongy and super cozy.

It is still effective and water and other liquids will not find their way through the fabric.
The fabric on the outside of the blanket is super soft to the touch. One side is sherpa fleece and the other side in a micro-fleece fabric. This is super warm and great for the winter months, though it can be used year-round.
