What The "Big Dogs" Say

"It's heaven...a ridiculously comfortable sleep spot for canines"
“Your dog will turn into your teenager with Big Barker—never leaving the bed”
“The Big Barker bed is a smart option for weary and ailing dogs”
“awarded by Wharton School of Business as one of Philadelphia’s 100 fastest growing privately held businesses”
“awarded #720 on the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.”

SIZING NOTE for Dogs Over 50 Pounds

We don’t make Barker Juniors for dogs over 50lbs. If your dog weighs 50 pounds or more, please see our world-renowned Big Barker bed collection.  Our bigger beds use a 3-stage foam construction more suitable for heavier dogs who need even more joint support.

Our Therapeutic Mattress Leaves Other Dog Beds in the Dust

The Barker Junior

Supports Joints

Our proprietary 2-stage foam construction cushions and cradles your dog’s joints.

Made in USA

Proudly handmade by skilled craftsmen in our small workshop in Pennsylvania.

10 Year Warranty

We invented the “can’t flatten, won’t flatten” warranty. The orthopedic foam lasts a full decade or we send you a new one!

Normal Dog Beds

No Joint Support

Normal dog beds offer absolutely no support for a dog’s joints.

Mass Produced in China

Quickly put together on a big Chinese assembly line without any love or expertise.

No Warranty

When a normal dog bed falls apart or flattens like a pancake, you're forced to buy another at full price.

Feel The Difference

Dogs can't talk, but people can! Watch what dog lovers say when they’re asked to lay on both a Barker Junior and a normal dog bed.

This Extreme Comfort is Only Possible with Our Handcrafted 2-Stage Construction Using Our Proprietary Blend of American Made Foam

Superior Foam = Superior Support

Guaranteed to Protect Your Dog for at Least 10 Years!

While the most important job of the Barker Junior is to keep your dog happy and healthy, we wanted to protect you too!

We wanted to make sure your Barker Junior would far outlast every other “dog bed” on the market. So, believe it or not, we guarantee it for a full decade. Yep, 10 whole years! Since we only use the highest quality American-made foam, we know your Barker Junior simply won’t let you or your dog down. We can take all the risk away today and offer you our 10-year, “Can’t Flatten, Won’t Flatten” warranty. Simply put: if your Barker Junior doesn’t keep over 90% of its original shape and support for at least 10 years, let us know and we’ll replace it for free!

It’s Dependable Because
It’s American Made

Big Barker will only ever make beds in America using American made foam. Our reputation is our most important asset. We only trust American workers and American materials to give your dog the care they deserve.

It’s Safe Because It’s CertiPUR-US® Certified

The majority of dog beds sold in stores are NOT certified by CertiPUR-US®, which may leave your dog at risk of sleeping on a bed that contains lead, arsenic, or other harmful materials that have been found in non-certified dog beds.

It's Proven Because...

Over 60,000+ Pet Parents Love It

More Reasons Why Dog Lovers Love Big Barker

Stays Cool

Stays Cool

Barker Junior only uses “open cell” foam, which allows air to move freely through the bed. Other materials, like memory foam, are “closed cell,” which trap hot air between your dog and the bed.

Easy To Clean

Easy To Clean

Machine washable, non-shrink microfiber cover comes off easy because we use up to 150 inches of zipper surrounding a full 75% of the bed.

Durable Covers

Durable Covers

Our strong microfiber covers hold up well against digging and nesting. Barker Junior only uses tough fabrics that score 100,000 or higher on the standard Wyzenbeek Abrasion test, which measures a fabrics ability to withstand surface wear from rubbing.

Height Health Advantage

Height Health Advantage

Particularly in cases of SEVERE joint, nerve or skeletal problems, our elevated 4-inch height health-advantage allows your dog to "walk off" their Barker Junior, not struggle to raise themselves from the "grounded start" provided by normal dog beds.

No Outgassing

No Outgassing

We use better ingredients and take better care of our foam than our competitors do. With a Barker Junior, you’ll never get that nasty “chemical” smell that irritates the skin, nose, and eyes of both dogs and humans alike.

Waterproof Liners

Waterproof Liners

Available as an optional upgrade, our super-protective, machine washable waterproof liners guard your purchase 24/7… We make our impenetrable waterproof liners from the same soft & quiet material used in industrial-grade hospital mattresses.

Military Service Dogs

It’s our great honor to gladly donate Big Barker beds to America’s wounded warriors and the Patriot PAWS service dogs they depend on…

“…literally keeps me out of a wheelchair and keeps me from having to be in a scooter for the rest of my life.”

In the town of Rockwall, Texas, patriotic dog lovers have banded together to lend a helping hand to America’s most deserving heroes.

To date, Patriot PAWS has expertly trained over 77 service dogs, specifically to meet the urgent needs of mobility-impaired veterans nationwide, returning home with disabling combat injuries and PTSD.

With the help of their devoted dog, veterans can now regain the emotional and physical independence that the battlefield almost took from them for good.

It’s our honor and privilege to be able to donate a brand new Big Barker dog bed to each wounded warrior whom Patriot PAWS pairs with their highly-trained service dogs.

“…literally keeps me out of a wheelchair and keeps me from having to be in a scooter for the rest of my life.”
