Big Barker beds won't flatten, which means even the largest breeds will rest comfortably while their joints are protected.

"Beyond diet and exercise, the best thing we can do to promote well-being for our dogs is to provide a comfortable and healthy place to rest." – Eric Shannon, Big Barker Founder and President

Big Barker – manufacturer of the Internet's favorite dog bed – is crossing the Atlantic to bring its unique therapeutic mattresses to dog lovers in the United Kingdom.

Philadelphia-based Big Barker's mission is to improve the quality of life for big dogs by providing handcrafted, therapeutic mattresses that help alleviate joint pain and enable dogs of any size to rest comfortably. Incorporating cutting-edge foam engineering with state-of-the-art pressure-mapping technology, each bed is handcrafted from certified Certi-PUR-US® American-made foam.

Dogs, particularly larger breeds, are prone to painful ailments that are exacerbated by sleeping directly on the floor or on cheap, unsupportive dog beds. Big dogs can suffer in silence from ailments such as arthritis, hip dysplasia, ACL tears and repairs, Wobbler disease, and stiffness and slowness resulting from older age.

Founded by Eric Shannon in 2012, Big Barker manufactures and sells the highest quality dog mattresses available. Shannon founded the company when his 92-pound mix, Hank, was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at an early age. With a lack of products aimed at big dogs, Shannon set out to engineer and manufacture a big-dog bed — and Big Barker was born.

Today, Big Barker’s array of mattresses and SUV beds average 5-star ratings on over 4,000 reviews via Amazon and Google Shopping.

"We designed Big Barker beds as a response to a void in the marketplace for mattresses that could properly support larger dogs. Now that word is spreading among dog lovers, there has been a demand to begin making them available in the UK, and we're excited to finally be able to do so," said Shannon. "As any dog owner can attest, we love our pets like members of the family and want them to be happy and healthy. Beyond diet and exercise, the best thing we can do to promote their well-being is to provide a comfortable and healthy place to rest."

Big Barker mattresses are available in three colors (khaki, chocolate, and burgundy) and sizes:

  • 48″ x 30″ x 7″ (Best for Labs, Golden Retrievers, Boxers, etc.)
  • 52″ x 36″ x 7″ (For any dog bigger than a Lab but smaller than a Great Dane)
  • 60″ x 48″ x 7″ (This massive bed is specifically made for Great Danes)

Big Barker has performed extensive testing on its mattresses and offer a 10-year warranty against flattening. Every Big Barker therapeutic mattress also includes a stylish, easy-to-clean, furniture-quality cover.

Big Barker mattresses are available for purchase directly through BigBarker.co.uk and Amazon UK.
