Big Barker 7″ Pillow Top Orthopedic Dog Bed Review

Perfect bed for large and extra large Dog breeds

This Big Barker orthopedic dog bed we are reviewing is the headrest edition. I think the fact that these dog beds gets a full 5 star rating is a great sign of an excellent product. It’s not often you see thousands of buyers rate a product with five out of five stars.

Maybe it’s not uncommon to get full marks when it involves only a small amount of sales, but thousands as is the case here with this dog bed is totally different.

Having read up on this company I must say I was really impressed, and it gave me a good vibe. Let’s take a look at why so many people recommend this dog bed.

One thing for sure is the bigger and heavier your dog is the sturdier the bed needs to be. Added to that, if your pet has joint issues and pain it’s another reason to find the perfect bed to meet your pets needs.

This Big Barker orthopedic bed comes in 3 sizes

​Sizes: Large, 48x30x7, extra large 52x36x7, and giant 60x48x7. It’s also available in 4 colors burgundy, khaki, chocolate and charcoal gray.

This company offers an amazing warranty! They fully expect that the foam will retain 90% of its original shape & loft for 10 years or your money back.

The bed is made from American made therapeutic foam of the best quality you’ll find in orthopedic dog beds. It won’t flatten or pancake over time.

The beds are handmade by craftsmen and craftswomen in their small California workshop. This is a shop that has been making artisan furniture for over 30 years.

These dog beds are machine washable

It’s machine washable with a 100% Microfiber cover that’s soft to the touch. They also look great in your home.

After serving over 50,000 dogs and their families, this company knows you need 3 things in an orthopedic dog bed:1. It must provide incredible support & comfort, can’t flatten over time

2. It has to be easy to clean

3. Must look great in your home

Big Barker make a dog bed that is precisely engineered to provide perfectly distributed weight support for extreme comfort & durability. Something that looks like a beautiful piece of furniture, and feels like a high end velvety couch on your skin.

It’s easy to clean this dog bed

You just unzip the machine washable cover. The bed is constructed with 7″ of American made therapeutic foam. This is the same foam used in expensive furniture. It supports every curve of a big dog’s body so big dogs don’t sink through the bed.

Apparently even full grown humans can feel comfortable laying on a Big Barker dog bed.

The foam used meets very high standards, and meets CertiPUR-US standards for content emissions. Its durable, comfortable & has been analyzed by independent, accredited testing laboratories.

Many “orthopedic” dog beds are mass produced in a factory. They are often constructed from Chinese-made foam. Also, fillers have been found in imported foam which means your pet could be sleeping on toxins.

These dog beds are less expensive, but you’ll quickly notice the difference. Cheap memory foam dog beds flatten quickly, and in the long run it will be more expensive as you’ll soon be buying a new bed.

The Big Barker bed has other sizes and prices

orthopedic bed for extra large and giant dogs

This bed is ideal for dogs of all ages

It provides extra relief for dogs suffering from joint pain, recovering from surgery, or living with conditions like arthritis, hip dysplasia, or other joint, bone, or muscle disorders.

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.

You may be wondering if this bed is suitable for your smaller dogs. Well here’s the answer…

The foam is calibrated for big dogs  like Labs, Boxers and all the way up to Great Danes. Dogs that have a good amount of weight per square inch. When a big dog lays on this foam, they’ll slightly sink into the top level of Comfort Foam.

With this topper they’ll be fully supported by the middle layer of support foam.

The comfort layer will mold around your dogs joints

This will feel very, very comfortable for your pet.However, a small dog (Beagle, Boston Terrier, etc) is too light to sink into the top layer of Comfort Foam. It would feel stiff to a smaller dog, but comfortable to a bigger dog.

The beds shipping weight is15.3lbs

Before we go on there are so many great reviews it’s difficult to find anything negative to report. Many reviews are long so we are just picking snipits of a few so that you get the picture.

What dog owners are saying about the Big Barker bed

Customer reviews…Please note that some comments are snipits of bigger reviews as so many of the full reviews are really long

**We took a chance ordering this online but it had such great reviews we were confident it would be a great purchase and we weren’t let down! This is the ONLY dog bed he has actually ever slept in, it’s supportive for his aging hips and the cover is very soft which just adds to the coziness.

* *This particular bed is the XL size, which fits perfect for my German Shepherd. He loves the headrest and has plenty of room to stretch out. I highly recommend this bed.

** So far so good! My Great Dane seems to appreciate his elbows are no longer digging into the hardwood floor. Expensive but worth it for my big guy… Wouldn’t you say? Love the warranty!

** UPDATE: I have had this dog bed for a year now, and it is still wonderful. It is my 12-year-old lab’s favorite place to spend her time. It is so easy to clean. I’ve really only needed to vacuum it and wipe it with a damp cloth. Haven’t even had to take the cover off.

The bed is still in good shape and just as perky as the first night she slept on it. I really think it helps her to get a good night sleep. She gets up in the morning with fewer aches and pain than she would have otherwise. She is also less grumpy at bed time than she was before we got the bed.

I usually sit with her on it for a few minutes before she goes to sleep now, and we have some quality time while I talk to her and pet her before bed. I hate to see my little girl getting older, but I am happy to be able to spoil her in her senior years. This bed is so worth it!

This dog bed was worth every penny

**I don’t usually write these but this was worth every penny. I wanted to wait a little bit before I reviewed this, just so I would be able to speak from real experience. We bought this as an alternative to buying a futon mattress for our one year old Great Dane, and he loves it.

Heck, I love it. I’m actually a bit jealous. Just to give you an idea of how well this thing works compared to the “large dog breed” beds they have available at pet stores (which are a joke for those of us with barking horses):

In less than a week after we got the Big Barker, Bear went from waking up at 4 am every morning to sleeping all night. And now he gets up from lying down without having to stretch like he’s trying to realign his hips.

That’s it folks...well for this top bed pick anyway. It makes me want to buy one myself and I don’t even have a big dog!

I’m sure you could feel quite confident in buying the Big Barker bed for your favorite big friend.
