When choosing bedding that will repel dog hair, it all comes down to picking the right fabrics. According to bedding experts, the best comforters for dog hair share one quality: They're made with tight fibers or slick surfaces that limit the amount of dog hair that can nestle in a comforter. For that reason, you'll want to pick one of a few different fabric options. Comforters made of silk, satin, tightly-woven microfiber polyester, sateen cotton, or cotton with a thread count of at least 400 are generally superior to jersey, knit, and low-thread-count cotton ones when it comes to resisting dog hair.

By and large silk and high-thread-count cotton tend to be more expensive than other comforter options. So keep your budget in mind as you shop. If you aren't looking to splurge on an expensive comforter, there are plenty of more affordable comforters out there that will still repel dog hair. If you’re going with less expensive polyester fabrics, be sure to look for microfiber polyester or polyester with a smooth satin finish, which will feature more tightly-wound fibers than a classic polyester comforter to eliminate the opportunities for dog hair to catch in its fabric.

And, if you know your pup will be spending substantial time on your bed, you'll want to make sure your comforter is machine washable. Even though they're lovable, dogs tend to bring messes with them wherever they go. A lot of down comforters are difficult to clean (or need to be sent out to dry cleaners), so be sure to look at the washing instructions before you buy. It can also help to find a comforter with a pattern or darker color that can better hide a mess if you don’t want to wash it every time your fur baby tracks in a smidge of dirt, or if they have darker fur that’s super visible on lighter-colored comforters.

Take a look below at the best comforters for dog hair, and snag some top-rated sheets for dog hair to go with them. All of them are dog-approved!


A Fluffy, Mid-Weight Microfiber Comforter

When it comes to dog-friendly comforters, you'll want one that doesn't catch hair and is also super soft for both you and your pup to enjoy. That's what makes this Lavish Comforts down alternative comforter an exceptional option. Its microfiber, double-brushed polyester shell is buttery soft and repels hair, and its down alternative fill is hypoallergenic and machine washable. Manufacturers claim this comforter is "softer than Egyptian cotton," and reviewers agree that it outperforms more expensive options they've tried. The long and short? This mid-weight comforter is a popular all-season option that's ideal for year-round use in most climates. It comes in white, blue, and gray.

Helpful Amazon review: "Doesn't collect our dogs hair, super soft and easy to clean. Love it!"

  • Available sizes: Twin, Queen, Oversized Queen, King, and California King


A Reversible Microfiber Comforter

For the price, you're not likely to find a better quality comforter that also resists dog hair than this Linenspa one. It's made with a microfiber polyester shell and fill, which does a better job of blocking dog hair than your average comforter. Thousands of Amazon fans have raved about how soft this comforter is, and report back that it's also easy to clean — it's machine washable and dryer safe.

Choose from a bunch of colors and patterns to match perfectly to your bedroom decor, including some reversible comforters.

Helpful Amazon review: "Very light weight and versatile. [...] I bought this to repel dog hair and so far so good! Great deal for the price."

  • Available sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, Oversized Queen, King, California King, Oversized King


A Floral Microfiber Comforter Set

This comforter set from Wake In Cloud has so many dog-friendly features it’s hard to know where to start. The comforter comes with two matching pillowcases, all made from soft microfiber that resists collecting pet hair, wrinkling, and fading. The dark gray color and floral print should hide stains or fur pretty effectively, but it’s also machine-washable (cold, gentle cycle) and can be tumble-dried on low. The set also has a 30-day trial period, so you and your pup can sleep with it for a month and get a full refund if you have any issues.

Helpful Amazon review: “This comforter is soft, warm, and beautiful. An added bonus that we didn't realize until after a couple of weeks is that it doesn't let dog hair cling to it. Even before washing it, what little dog hair it does collect comes right off with a sweep of the hand. All without feeling like cheap material.”

  • Available sizes: Twin, Full, Queen, King, California King


A 1,200-Thread-Count Down Comforter

If you don’t want to sacrifice luxurious bedding just because you have a dog, this Egyptian Bedding comforter is truly an incredible choice. It’s covered in Egyptian cotton with a super high thread count (1,200!) that makes it soft, smooth, and resistant to gathering pet hair. The fluffy, ethically-sourced goose down fill provides medium warmth you can enjoy year-round. While down is typically tough to wash, some Amazon reviewers report successfully machine-washing the comforter and the brand itself suggests it can go in the washing machine. Not all reviewers have been happy with the results of machine washing and recommend getting the comforter professionally cleaned, so it’s truly up to you, but it’s nice to know machine washing is an option. If you don’t want to take your chances with a white comforter, it’s also available in black or gray, with or without a subtle stripe pattern.

Helpful Amazon review: “I am a bedding snob. I have to have a lot of good quality sheets and they get changed every other day (I have 2 dogs that sleep in bed) This Duvet is what I consider to be the perfect weight to have for both Summer and Winter. It is a really good fill/ weight. I love the stiffer fabrics, it is a little noisy but I expect that. If it wasn't heavy and crinkly I would have been sad :( BUT! Instead I am glad”

  • Available sizes: Twin, Queen, King, California King, Palatial King


A Stain-Resistant Comforter That Wicks Moisture

Made from incredibly soft brushed microfiber, this down alternative comforter from Madison Park is perfect for pet owners. The box-quilted comforter has a satin border for a touch of style and comes in your choice of several colors. It has a 3M Scotchgard treatment that keeps the comforter looking fresh by helping stains come out easily in the wash, which is a total boon if you share a bed with your pup — just be sure to machine wash cold using a gentle cycle and tumble dry low. According to Amazon reviewers, the comforter really is easy to clean — “after my sick dog peed on it twice, I found out that it washes and dries really, really easily and very well,” one user wrote. The Scotchgard treatment also helps the blanket wick moisture, so sweaty sleepers can stay cool and comfortable at night.

Helpful Amazon review: “Love this blanket! I have been looking for a blanket like this to replace one I had years ago. It is lightweight but still holds heat. Dog hair from my dogs that sleep with us does not stick to it like it does other blankets. The satin binding is silky to touch. I highly [recommend].”

  • Available sizes: Twin, Oversized Twin, Full/Queen, Oversized Full/Queen, King, Oversized King


A Satin-Covered Comforter Set

Pet hair should slide right off this silky satin comforter, which comes packaged with matching pillowcases. The satin is made from smooth microfiber, which feels pleasantly cool to the touch and has a super lightweight polyester filling so you don’t get too hot at night, even when your fur baby is snuggling close. Choose from a handful of different color options.

Helpful Amazon review: “Keeps dog hair to a minimum! Love the silky feel, great for summer time as it is thin.”

  • Available sizes: Twin, Queen, King


A Striped, Quilted Sateen Cotton Comforter

This lightweight comforter is perfect for anyone with dogs, since it’s covered in 500-thread-count sateen cotton that’s super smooth to the touch. According to one reviewer who has three dogs, fur sticks less to this smooth material than other fabrics. Available in a few colors (some of which might do a better job hiding fur or other messes) and filled with polyester, Amazon reviewers suggest the quilt is perfect for hot sleepers or anyone who likes to layer their blankets. Unlike many comforters, you can actually machine wash this one in a normal cycle (rather than cold) and dry it on medium, which is ideal for dealing with any pup-related messes.

Helpful Amazon review: “Love the light weight and softness. The fabric is excellent quality and colour is beautiful. The price was awesome.”

  • Available sizes: Full/Queen, King


A Silk-Filled Sateen Comforter

For a high-end, hotel-quality comforter that's still hypoallergenic, you can't go wrong with this Moon's Sleepwares silk comforter. It's made of cotton sateen shell with a 100% silk fill that's soft to the touch and repels away pet hair. Plus, this lightweight, all-season comforter is perfect all year long in moderate climates, though if you'd prefer a cooler or heavier option, this product is also available in summer and winter weights. While this comforter is dry-clean only, the slick surface of the sateen fabric is resistant to dirt and hair, meaning you can get away with laundering this comforter less often than you might otherwise need to.

Helpful Amazon review: "I can't believe I've been without this for so long. What a simple elegant solution. The weight is perfect, the feel is fantastic. I love this comforter."

  • Available sizes: Twin, Full, Queen, King, California King


A Cotton Comforter Set That Hides Pet Hair

If your pup sheds a lot and you simply don’t want to see their fur all over the bed, reviewers are seriously obsessed with the way this NEWLAKE comforter set’s colorful pattern hides it from view. The comforter and two matching pillowcases are made entirely from cotton — and that includes both sides of the comforter (it’s reversible!), plus the lightweight fill. And while the manufacturer doesn’t specify how high the thread count is for the cotton, reviewers report that it’s soft and sturdy enough not to snag or tear from your dog’s nails. The set can also be machine-washed cold and tumble-dried low, and reviewers are happy with the washing results — “Our dog sleeps on our bed, so I need something that will stand-up to frequent washings. This washes and drys very well,” wrote one happy customer.

Helpful Amazon review: "I ordered two of these to cover two queen-sized beds [...] They are just spectacular. They aren't as light-weight as some other comforters I have, but they aren't too heavy either. I'll likely double them up with an additional blanket for winter. The colors are just as you see them. Rich and lovely with nice pattern and good detail. I've washed both of these quilts four times now since I got them this summer (we have pets) and they are holding up like champs and seem to hold the scent of my detergent extra long when washed, which is great! I'm absolutely in love with them and intent to plan the decor for my bedroom around them. Being a house with cats and dogs, I do enjoy that the pattern doesn't seem to show hair, even when the poor blanket is covered in the stuff. All in all a great purchase I'd recommend to anyone!!
