Introducing The Backseat Barker SUV Edition

Make travel the ultimate treat for the dog in your life

Meet the first ever “shock-absorbing” dog bed - lovingly designed for discerning SUV owners who want to wheel their dog around in unmatched style and comfort.

Simply put: this unique bed expertly soaks up all the uncomfortable bumps on the road so your dog’s delicate joints never feel a thing.

Handcrafted with the same super-supportive foam technology as our best-selling orthopedic beds, the Backseat Barker: SUV Edition is geared to add to your dog’s joint-health and contentedness on any journey. Be it a quick run over to doggy daycare, or a road trip to remember.

The Backseat Barker: SUV Edition was born because “bumps in the road” both big and small - can easily jar a dog’s joints, especially at higher speeds.

From our plush foam driver’s seat, the road may seem smooth, but for a dog laying on a hard, unforgiving trunk floor - every road can feel way too much like an uneven gravel driveway.

Naturally, it’s bad for any dog to be bouncing off the floor of any SUV with no true shock absorption. As rock-hard metal and plastic floor fixtures dig dangerously into their dog’s hips and legs.

Especially for a big dog prone to joint issues - that’s bad news. Even on short drives.

Until now the best any of us have been able to do to help our dogs is to place a thin rug or comforter beneath them. It’s been better than nothing - but now you can gift them the ultimate comfort and joint-care upgrade.

We’ve used our three decades of foam engineering experience to construct a backseat solution that gives you a stylish “Big Barker in the back” rather than an increasingly ratty rug or blanket - and that gives your dog, the most comfy ride of their life!

PLUS… the best feature of this bed’s unique design might be that this bed has wings!

Yes, our one-of-a-kind “winged” design allows this super-supportive bed to fit nice ‘n’ snug into into any SUV trunk.

" that you can take the cover off to wash it!!!" 


From the minute I took it out of the box, I laid it on the living room floor after unpacking to let it get to form. Gus jumped on it right away and claimed it as his own. He knows his Big Barker! He then proceeded to fall asleep on it for the next 15 min…

I love the design and the fluffy pillows attached to it. I also love the same microfiber cover that is used in his bed. And I love that you can take the cover off to wash it!!!!!

It also looks great on the looks classy! Very stylish.

This bed will make him more comfy , he is getting older now… he will be 9 in Feb.

Big Barker [beds are] so comfy....I crawl in his bed with him....and now I want to crawl in the SUV bed and let him!

  • Superior Support! Orthopedic foam comforts joints & keeps your dog’s pressure points from ever touching the hard car floor below.


  • Fast & Easy To Clean! The top cover has beautifully hidden zippers that extend a full 70% around the foam construction - meaning the foam is always easy to take out and replace. The attached “pillow wings” can also be popped out and put back with no fuss whatsoever. Making this unique backseat bed always quick and easy to machine wash.

  • The Finest Foam! Here’s our sure-fire recipe for backseat bliss: Our breakthrough 2-stage foam construction begins with a generous helping of American-made support foam. Upon which we place an equal measure of joint-soothing comfort foam. We’ve even sized the foam so it’s thick and supportive - yet still easy to jump onto. Even for older dogs.

  • Protective Pillow Power! Your bed’s poofy, high-fiber “pillow wings” conform around the side of your trunk to create extra padding in the case of fast turns or emergency maneuvers. PLUS… your pillows also help protect the sides of your SUV trunk against doggie hair - and unsightly scratches!

"This new Big Barker is a miracle. As soon as they jumped in they instantly laid down.
We didn't hear a peep out of them the whole trip!!"


I have 2 boxers who frequently ride in the back of my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Prior to the Big Barker bed, we didn't really have a bed for them to lay on. If we were going long distances, we'd throw their flimsy dog beds in the back and hope they were comfortable. My older boxer would get really bad anxiety to travel. To the point where he wouldn't even lay down. He would stand the entire time!! We would constantly hear the two of them shuffling around in the back; which never sat well with us because of the potential danger of them shifting around in the moving car. They honestly never seemed to be comfortable (most likely because the cheap beds we had were not very stable).

This new Big Barker is a miracle. As soon as they jumped in they instantly laid down. We didn't hear a peep out of them the whole trip!! It was kind of unbelievable. The bed is so sturdy and the charcoal grey looks so sleek in the back of my car. Thank you again so much!! I will recommend this to all of our friends with dogs.

  • Keep Hair At Bay! Everyone likes a nice clean trunk. And now you can give your car stylish protection from the hairpocalypse - all while you give your four-legged friend the smoothest ride on four wheels.
  • No Installation Needed! Just place it in your trunk.
  • Super Versatile! Whip it out of your trunk and use it as a travel bed - or an extra bed in your home!
  • Space Galore! The 3-inch “low-profile” of this Backseat Barker means you can stack whatever you want on top of your SUV bed without needing to take the bed in and out. Shopping bags, bikes, tools, there’s always room to spare!
  • 10-Year Guarantee! Foam will retain 90% of original shape and loft for an entire decade, or your money back.
  • Always American! The highest quality foam is always American. And it’s the only kind of foam you’ll ever find in any Big Barker product. That’s why our foam doesn’t flatten or pancake over time.
  • Handcrafted In The USA! The craftsmen in our small California workshop have over 100 combined years of furniture-making experience.
  • Superior Softness! 100% Microfiber cover is soft to the touch. A stylish addition to any SUV.
  • Famously Flexible & Forgiving Return Policy! If you change your mind after ordering, or if your dog just doesn’t like their new SUV bed for any reason whatsoever, you can always ship it back to us for an exchange or a full refund. We’ll even pick up the tab for shipping! That’s how confident we are that your dog will absolutely love this unique bed.

How To Select Your Size

The Backseat Barker: SUV Edition is designed for flexible sizing as the pillow wings adjust to the width of your SUV.

Ideally, the total width of the Backseat Barker (including the pillow wings) should be wider than your SUV. This way the pillow wings can lean against the side walls. Yet the foam should not be wider than the back of your SUV so it easily fits in your vehicle.

The most important measurement is the depth, which is the amount of space needed between the backseat and the trunk door. There is a 10 inch depth difference between each size.
