Meet the world famous Big Barker, the only dog bed scientifically calibrated, and clinically proven to improve quality of life for large dogs. After serving over 150,000 dogs and their families, we know you need 3 things in an orthopedic dog bed:

1. Must provide clinically proven support & comfort, can’t flatten over time

2. Must be easy to clean

3. Must look great in your house

We make a dog bed precisely engineered to provide perfectly distributed weight support for extreme comfort & durability. Looks like a beautiful piece of furniture, feels like a high-end velvety couch on your skin. Easy to clean, just unzip the machine washable cover.

Please understand: this is NOT a normal dog bed.

The Big Barker is a REAL bed – made for dogs.

Normal dog beds might look pretty, and they might call themselves “orthopedic” or “memory foam”, but they don’t feel like you’d expect your own bed to feel. The Big Barker is a therapeutic mattress, uniquely engineered to keep dogs youthful for longer and to bring older dogs back to their best.

The Big Barker does more than just provide a comfy place to sleep… it will give your dog a better life. And we will prove it!

University of Pennsylvania study finds Big Barker beds improve quality of life for big dogs in just 28 days

In a scientific clinical study conducted by University of Pennsylvania, owners reported that the Big Barker bed reduced joint pain and stiffness, improved joint function and gait, and led to improved nighttime restfulness in large dogs with arthritis.

To scientifically determine if Big Barker dog beds could reduce joint pain and improve mobility in big dogs with arthritis, University of Pennsylvania researchers gave forty dogs – each at least three-years-old and weighing 70+ pounds – Big Barker beds and activity monitors to measure their sleep and movement.

Independent data analysis showed the following improvements to the mean score: 17.6% improvement in joint function; 21.6% reduction in pain severity; 12.5% reduction in joint stiffness; 9.6% improvement in gait; and 15.1% improvement in quality of life.

Big Barker is the first dog bed that’s been clinically proven to improve quality of life for large dogs.

We’re leading the way in taking big dog joint health seriously. Join us on the journey!

Proudly Made in the USA

Your Big Barker is made in our small Pennsylvania workshop with 7″ of our proprietary American Made OrthoMedic foam. Engineered as a high-end mattress, but specifically calibrated for big dogs. Supports every curve of a big dog’s body. Big dogs don’t sink through the bed, full-grown humans feel comfortable laying on a Big Barker. Lay on it yourself and you’ll feel the difference immediately.

Our American Made 7-inch, 3-layered foam mattress is durable, comfortable, and meets CertiPUR-US standards for content, emissions, and durability & has been analyzed by independent, accredited testing laboratories.

10 Year “Won’t Flatten” Promise

This bed won’t flatten. Our world-famous Big Barker foam will retain at least 90% of its shape & support for the next 10 years or we’ll replace it for free!

Most other “orthopedic” dog beds are mass-produced on foreign factory assembly lines, using cheaper, lower-quality Chinese-made foam. That’s why they flatten so fast!

They’re less expensive, but you’ll see and feel the difference immediately. Worse, dangerous fillers have been found in imported foam. Nobody wants their treasured companion sleeping on toxins.

Ideal for dogs of all ages.

Provides extra relief to dogs suffering from joint pain, recovering from surgery, or living with conditions like arthritis, hip dysplasia, or other joint, bone, or muscle disorders. This is why Big Barker beds are actively used inside Ryan Veterinary Hospital at University of Pennsylvania.




Built in America With the Care Your Dog Deserves

10-Year “Can’t Flatten, Won’t Flatten” Promise

Omit the frustration and ongoing expense of dog beds that flatten like pancakes. When a dog bed flattens, it loses any shred of support it started off with.

Once it starts getting lumpy or develops a crater in the middle, your dog’s bed becomes about as comfortable as sleeping on a paper-thin bath mat.

That’s why your Big Barker is built to protect your big dog for at least 10 years, without losing any of its uniquely supportive power.

Made In The USA

Big Barker will only ever make beds in America using American made foam.

Most pet beds in the store and online are made on foreign assembly lines using cheap Chinese foam & fillers.

Like so many Americans, we try to “buy American” whenever we will – and we wanted to finally give pet parents the chance to buy a dog bed they could rely on for the long haul.

Bottom line: We only trust American workers and American foam to give your dog the care they deserve.

Proven by 100,000+ Pet Parents

Since 2012, Big Barker beds have been put to the test in the homes of over 100,000+ loving pet parents.

At first glance it may seem like a lot of money for a dog bed – but this is NOT a normal dog bed. This is a REAL bed. It’s a therapeutic mattress for your dog.

Don’t just take it from us – check out the reviews, feel the love, and meet thousands of dog owners just like you who overcame the natural initial “sticker shock” and have no regrets whatsoever. The Big Barker is America’s most beloved dog bed for a reason.

Unrivaled Support

Vets will tell you that up to 80% of large dogs will suffer from joint pain as they age. Painful conditions like arthritis and hip dysplasia can cause dogs to lose quality of life and struggle with mobility.

To fight against these problems, we’ve engineered a special bed to keep dogs youthful for longer, and bring older dogs back to their best.

Big Barker’s unique 3-stage foam construction envelops sensitive joints in buttery comfort foam used in the outer layers, even as the middle layer provides resilient support and blocks pressure points from driving into the hard floor below.

They use our beds in their Emergency & Critical Care, Neurology, Surgery, Oncology, and Orthopedics departments. Dogs in hospitals are continuously bedridden for days or weeks at a time, the Big Barker not only keeps them comfortable, but helps prevent secondary problems like bedsores and muscle contractions.


Big Barker In The News: For Us… It’s Personal.

We’ve worked with the two largest no-kill shelters in Philadelphia – Philly PAWS and the Philadelphia SPCA – to outfit their facilities with donated Big Barker beds. We’ve also assisted with successful fundraisers for national organizations like Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary, National Mill Dog Rescue, and Big Dogs Huge Paws and have provided hundreds of Big Barkers to be used as raffle or auction items at local events. Dogs in shelters continuously have the biggest hearts and most gentle souls. If we will make their stay more comfortable even as they wait to find their without end homes, we’re honored for the privilege.


Big Barker In The News: For Us… It’s Personal.

It’s our great honor to gladly donate Big Barker beds to America’s wounded warriors and the highly-trained Patriot PAWS service dogs they depend on. Patriot PAWS trains and provides service dogs at no cost to disabled American veterans and others with mobile disabilities and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in order to help restore their physical and emotional independence. Each service dog that graduates from training is gifted a Big Barker to help them rest easy during their days of service.
