"This is Remy, an 8 year old 160 pound American Bulldog. Remy loves his Big Barker bed! He sleeps all day and night on it without re-positioning himself. It holds his weight and supports his achy joints very well with no sagging!"
"Rocko, our 6 year old Doberman Pinscher, loves his new bed. After a long night's sleep he pops right up! Before, on his old beds, he would get up slowly and have to stretch. So glad we found you. We have spent close to what this bed cost numerous times and they never lasted. This bed is worth every penny. Quality is outstanding."
"Rocky absolutely lovesssss his Big Barker!! It's been so hard trying to find a bed that he can fit on and be able to stretch out. It's his favorite place to sit and sleep, and it definitely helps with his mild arthritis in his hips. He especially likes the head rest and often uses it when he takes naps!"

Frequently Asked

How long will it take my bed to ship?


Orders without embriodery ship within 1 business day, or even same day!

Adding embroidery takes a bit longer, but if you choose that option, your bed will still be shipped within 3 business days or less.

All orders ship via Ground Shipping by default, which can take anywhere from 2-7 business days to arrive at your door, depending on how far you live from the warehouse.

Is it machine washable?


Of course! Machine wash the cover on cold temperature, dry on low heat.

Are the beds chew proof?


No, the cover is not made from chew resistant material. We use a furniture grade microfiber. It's "tear resistant" - meaning, it holds up better against nesting/digging than most types of dog bed covers. But dogs can chew through it if they're determined.

However - we don't get many reports of chewed up beds. That's partially because we do a good job of hiding the zipper and sewing the seams properly, which eliminates some of the attractive things to chew at. Also, we find that dogs are less likely to chew into a big block of foam than a bag of fluff that can be nested and moved around.

So, it's not chew proof. But if there's ever a tear, we gladly send out extra fabric if you'd like to patch the rip (no cost for that). Or we also have replacement covers available.

How does the 10 Year Warranty work?


We guarantee that the foam will retain at least 90% of it's original loft for the next ten years, or we'll replace it for free! No hassle involved, just contact us with a picture and we'll have a new piece of foam to you in no time.

What if my dog won't use the bed?


While it's rare, every once in a while, a dog won't get used to their new bed. With the Big Barker, since 2012, this has been roughly 2% - 3% of customers.

In almost all cases, given enough time (and sometimes a few bribes!), an at-first skeptical dog will eventually warm up to their Big Barker and fall totally in love.

But if it never happens.... that's ok! It's why we give you a full 365 day at home trial.

Take as much time as you need. We want your dog to have every opportunity to get the health benefits gained by sleeping on their Big Barker.

If they never warm up to it though, just contact us, and we'll give you a full 100% refund along with a hearty "thank you" for trying our bed!

Should I add KulKote?


If your dog gets hot all the time, then we’d recommend it.

The Big Barker is naturally cooler than most beds due to the open cell foam technology, which allows air to flow freely. Unlike closed-cell memory foam beds, which trap hot air between a dog and the surface of the bed.

Adding a layer of Kulkote makes it even cooler!!  It absorbs the energy of their body heat into the Phase Change Material (PCMs). This absorption results in an enhanced cooling experience. 

As an additional benefit, if your dog lies on their bed when they are cold, the PCMs sense their temperature and release the heat energy that was stored, resulting in a warming effect. 

Big Barker is the only dog bed approved to use KulKote technology.

With Big Barker, there’s always more to love.

Stays Cool
Stays Cool

Big Barker 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

Up to 150 inches of zipper surrounding 75% of each bed makes it easy for you to remove Big Barker’s non-shrink covers and throw them in the washing machine.

Durable Covers
Durable Covers

Our covers are constructed with the toughest microsuede fabric, which holds up against digging and scores 100,000 or higher on the Wyzenbeek Abrasion test—the standard for measuring a fabric’s 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 7-inch height health-advantage allows your dog to "walk off" their Big Barker, not struggle to raise themselves from the "grounded start" provided by normal dog beds.

No Out Gassing
No Out Gassing

We use better ingredients and take better care of our foam than our competitors do. With a Big Barker, 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

Our impenetrable, machine-washable waterproof liners are made from the same soft, quiet material used in hospital-grade mattresses. Add as an optional upgrade to protect your Big Barker from fluids 24/7.

Arthritic Dog Is So Comfy

Our Roscoe is a 9+yo GSP with a spinal compression near his tail that can cause quite a bit of pain. That was, until his neurologist prescribed meds and recommended a supplement along with a firm memory foam bed. Roscoe’s Big Barker bed is equal in quality to our high-end bed. He sleeps like a baby and gets up easily in the morning. It has made a huge difference in his mobility and we’re very thankful for that. It’s worth every penny!

Big bed no handel.

My 11-month-old German Shepherd puppy Wesley is not fond of the bed. He likes sleeping on a king size bed with us. But he does use it at times the big Barker. One thing would be nice if it had a handle so you could tow it from room to room. Thank you your product. Paul

I have a goofy 1 year old, 90lb Weimaraner pup that needed a good bed for his joints as he’s very active. I also have an extremely agile German short hair pup that loves nesting! I was looking for 1 bed to accommodate both pups then I came across big barker. The reviews alone had me convinced but seeing a 10year warranty with a 1 year trial period was the icing on the cake. It took a couple of days to adjust but my dogs LOVE this bed. They can both sprawl out and still have room yet it doesn’t take up my entire house.
