The Backseat Barker SUV Edition

Make travel the ultimate treat for the dog in your life

Meet the first-ever “shock-absorbing” dog bed.

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.

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 comfiest 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 any SUV trunk.

Dog lounging on Backseat Barker: SUV Edition 

"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 comfier, he is getting older now… he will be 9 in Feb."

"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.

  • 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!

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.

The measurements below will help.


Dimensions: (including pillow wings)  55” wide x 25” deep x 3” thick

Inner Foam:  30” wide x 25” deep x 3” thick

Examples:  Ford Escape, Chevy Equinox, Jeep Latitude


Dimensions: (including pillow wings)  58” wide x 35” deep x 3” thick

Inner Foam:  33” wide x 35” deep x 3” thick

Examples:  Ford Edge, Honda CRV, Jeep Grand Cherokee

Extra Large:

Dimensions: (including pillow wings)  61” wide x 45” deep x 3” thick

Inner Foam:  36” wide x 45” deep x 3” thick

Examples:  Ford Explorer, Chevy Suburban, Dodge Grand Caravan

Most excellent dog bed for SUV

The XL SUV dog bed fit perfectly in our 2023 Toyota 4Runner cargo area and our 2 rotties seemed very comfortable. The quality of this Made in USA dog bed beat all expectations. Very highly recommend!

Just what we needed! Senior GSD

We love our new Big Barker bed for our three dogs! We have a senior rescue GSD, a golden retriever and a rescue Potcake dog. All three fit! Comfy for our big guy -Beau (GSD) and just what we needed to get to the dog park, veterinarian or driving on long road trips with all the pups!

16 Hour Drive with our 9 month old Goldendoodle

We had to adapt the SUV Backseat Barker to our Ford F150 extended cab for our large puppy! We live in Fort Myers where Hurricane Ian struck and our drive home 2 days post hurricane was long and we had to reroute to get to our home. I fully believe the Big Barker bed saved us and our large pup on that trip home. He slept a majority of the time or chewed on a toy on his comfortable bed! So happy we made this purchase!

I have a Honda Element and it’s not the traditional size inside. But I got the large I believe and just had to take unstuff one of the wings so my 2 dogs would fit more comfortably. But it is great!!

Weathered 2500 mile trip from west to east!

We recently moved from Montana to SC and this bed has been through it with two giant breed dogs. We wouldn't have made it across the country without it! The dogs were comfortable and we didn't have to rush to get to our new home worrying about the dogs having joint issues when we got there. The cover has been through wet dogs, dirty dogs, pawing/nesting; and it still looks brand new! If you're not sure if this bed is for you because of the price, invest the money... you'll be grateful you did! Our dogs don't like dog beds but the Big Barker has given us a sigh of relief that our giant breed dogs will have less joint issues because of the Big Barker! Read the publication/peer review from the Vet University on the website. You'll be sold! Big Barker, our dogs Outlaw and Doc say "Thank you!"
