We never planned on making a smaller sized dog bed, but we also didn't realize how many customers who had BIG dogs also had smaller dogs. After dozens of requests to replicate the Big Barker for their smaller buddies, we're proud to present.... the Big Barker Mini!
The most accurate way of choosing the perfect size bed for your dog is to take a quick measurement. Using any old tape measure, write down your dog's length from head to hips, and also get your dog's height from paw to shoulder.
This is your dog's maximum size at a full stretch. Most dog's don't sleep in a full stretch position, but you want a bed that is big enough at maximum size. Make sure you choose a bed that is at least as long as the head to butt measurement and at least as wide as the paw to shoulder distance.
The weight of your dog does not matter. All sizes of the Big Barker Mini can easily handle up to 120 lbs of bodyweight.
Small: 27" long X 18" wide X 4" thick
Medium: 33.25" long X 21.25" wide X 4" thick
Take measurements for 100% accuracy, but in most cases, the following guidelines should help you pick the right size bed.
Small: For dogs shorter than 18" tall. Dachshund, Italian Greyhound, Jack Russell Terrier, Pug, Beagle, Boston Terrier, Cocker Spaniel, French Bulldog, etc.
Medium: For dogs shorter than 21" tall. English Bulldog, Brittany, Whippet, smaller Pit Bulls, etc.
Remember that if you change your mind on the size after ordering, or if your dog just won't sleep on the bed for whatever reason, you can always ship it back to us for an exchange or refund.
