Simple. It’s the foam. Here’s the difference between a REAL bed for dogs vs a normal dog bed.
Normal beds made from polyfill or cheap memory foam don't provide support. Their material collapses under the weight of a big dog, with no support layer to prevent your dog from pressing directly into the ground below, creating uncomfortable pressure points.
The weight bearing parts of your dog's body sink into the top layer, wrapping their joints in comfort foam. The support layer in the middle provides a small amount of give, sustaining the comfort while blocking your dog from sinking all the way to the floor.
We blend multiple types of American made foam using a proprietary foam construction process to ensure your dog’s weight is well supported and perfectly balanced - just like you’d expect from your own expensive mattress.
Normal dog beds are most commonly made in China using cheap materials that let your dog’s joints grind right into the floor - just like you’d expect from a bad pull-out couch.
The comfort provided by Big Barker beds - and the absence of stress and pressure caused by laying on the hard floor - has allowed 60,000+ pet parents to keep their dog feeling happy and active.
