Big Barker 7 Inch Pillow Top Dog Bed Reviewed
Big dogs need bigger spaces—that much is a given when it comes to taking care of large breed dogs. We’re sure that you’d love to have your dog cuddle up with you on your bed constantly, but even dogs want their own space from time to time. With the Big Barker 7 Inch Pillow Top, you’ll have a dog bed that’s quite similar to a human bed, complete with a pillow and all. Your dog won’t be able to tell the difference, and it’ll definitely appreciate having a lounge space to call its own. The Big Barker 7 has plenty of features to convince you that this is the best bed for your large furry companion.
Durability and Reliability
One of the biggest issues when it comes to dog beds is that most of them can’t keep up with the weight of larger dogs. Most beds in the market will completely buckle under a lot of weight, but not the Big Barker 7 Inch Pillow Top. This dog bed is designed to maintain its shape over time, regardless of how heavy your pet may be. The entire bed—from the foam to the microfiber cover is handmade by American craftsmen, who take pride in the work that they’ve been doing for over 30 years. The company actually puts their money on it, providing a 10-year warranty stipulating that the bed will retain 90% of its original shape even after 10 years of use. If the bed doesn’t hold its end, the company guarantees your money back.
This Big Barker dog bed is actually an orthopedic bed. Most large dog owners know that one of the problems of being a large dog happens over time as the dog ages. Larger dog breeds tend to develop bone diseases as they get older, and having a therapeutic bed is one way to prevent the development of such diseases. If you have a large dog that already suffers from some type of bone disease, the Big Barker 7 Inch can help alleviate the chronic pain that comes along with it. The bed is made up of 3in. of support foam sandwiched between two 2in. comfort foams. The pillow is made with 4in. of contoured foam for that extra comfort for your dog. The end result of all this foam is rest for your dog like no other.
The bed is obviously designed for larger dog breeds. As a matter of fact, the Big Barker 7 Inch comes in three different sizes: Large, Extra Large, and Giant XXL. This bed can accommodate even the largest of dog breeds such as Great Danes, Neapolitan Mastiffs, Newfoundland Dogs, and Saint Bernards among many others. The heaviest of these dogs can weigh up to 200lbs. while the average can weigh anywhere between 100 to 150lbs. While the Big Barker 7 Inch can obviously accommodate average-sized dogs, there are probably better bed options for that size. To make the most out of the great features of this particular dog bed, you should be buying it for a large breed and nothing smaller.
Cost and Value
The reason why you shouldn’t just buy this bed for any other dog is basically the price. The bed is quite pricey at just around $240-$300 apiece, but you have to remember that these beds are orthopedic beds. They’re made to help larger dog breeds cope with their bone density. Having said that, for the price of the bed, you’re giving your large dog the absolute best. You can help your dog prevent a lot of issues later on in its life by providing it with this therapeutic bed. The fact that the company also gives you a 10-year warranty with their product is helpful.
