These pandemic pets are undoubtedly going to be spoilt rotten, with everybody who’s wanted a puppy or kitten for years finally able to share their love now they’re working from home more.
As a result of the dog-buying-and-rescuing boom, bed company Time4Sleep has designed a bespoke range of luxurious doggy beds to match their own human.
They’ve created exact replicas of some of its most popular designs and reduced them down to doggy size so that you can kick back with your canine this season.
Starting from £304, the handmade beds are a new addition to the growing trend of opulent pet beds, although this is believed to be the first collection of its kind to be made into miniature versions of human beds.The first in the collection is the Pup-vision TV bed, costing £447 and perfect for #PetflixandChill.
While the human version unveils a full size television at the flick of a switch, this one opens a slot where you can put a tablet or phone so your dog can watch their favourite films and shows.
We’d recommend Beethoven or Homeward Bound, but stay away from Marley and Me at all costs.Next up is a solution to the sea of dog toys that no doubt occupy your floors – the Store and Snore Doggy Ottoman at £390.
If you have an older dog with tooth troubles, add a little water or chicken broth to his or her kibble and microwave for 20 to 30 seconds.
With its simple storage unit, you and your dog can enjoy all the Christmas presents this year without having to worry about the wreckage. From squeaky toys to dog bones, this bed can store it all in the base.Then, for all the vintage queens of the doggy world is the Ruff Ruff Rattan bed, which costs £304.
It’s ideal for those pups who like to stay on-trend, and the rattan bedframe will bring cottagecore and more to your doggo’s festive interiors.

Help your pet be as active as nature intended. Exercise and play time are necessary for your pet’s mental and physical well-being. If you don’t give your dog opportunities to be physically active, or if you don’t encourage exercise for your kitty and find ways to make it happen, you may well end up with a bored, destructive, overweight pet whose health will spiral downward throughout her lifetime.
