This wiki has been updated 20 times since it was first published in December of 2018. You packed your change of clothes, toiletries, first aid kit and food, but you forgot the most important thing. Your pet requires certain comforts when he travels, too. Rather than creating a makeshift pallet from piles of blankets, get the four-legged friend you love so much a portable dog bed. We rounded up some models that will stand the test of time and keep pups sleeping soundly. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 11, 2018:

Since your trunk and suitcases are already jam-packed, we made sure each of our selections rolls up, folds down, or compresses into a smaller size for travel. We included traditional models that sit flush with the floor, as well as some elevated, cot-style ones for rougher environments.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
