Questions & Answers

7 Customer Questions

Beds are pretty useless after a month or so if there are no extra covers. Can extra covers be ordered?
Answer by ChewyOct 17, 2018
At this time, we're not offering any replacement covers, however they are available via the manufacturer.

Is this chew resistant?
Answer by ChewyOct 20, 2022
The bed cover is highly tear-resistant and will hold up strongly against digging and nesting, but it is not chew-proof.

Do dogs get hot sleeping on this bed? Right now my 10 year old corgi will scratch his mat away and sleep on the plastic because i think he gets hot. Corgis have a thick coat.
Answer by ChewyMay 07, 2020
Big Barker Orthopedic Waterproof & Tear-Resistant Pillow Top Dog Crate Pad have foam with open cell technology, so they do not retain body heat. The covers also allow air to flow, so they do not trap heat.

is there a drawback if i use this as a primary bed rather than a crate pad
Answer by ChewyNov 03, 2017
There isn't a drawback, you can use pad as a crate pad or pet bed.

lasted 6 months

Not impressed. I bought this bc it was supposed to be almost indestructible & my dog broke into it in six months. Almost $200 for six months? Not great.

Not a good purchase

I bought the bed because of the information indicating it bed was made for aggressive chewers. The first time my dog was placed on the bed in the crate she had the material ripped and the stuffing all over the place

comfy but tore fast

Really great dog bed in terms of comfort for our 55lb mutt. Best one by far. But he began to tear foam out of one corner on day 2 and I can’t fix it much beyond popping some back in and hand sewing the seam. He keeps reopening it once or twice a week. I’m pretty sad about it because the bed will clearly last on the order of months, not years. Not worth the $150.

$160.00 down the drain

This is what I came home to after a quick trip to do grocery shopping. Ridiculous!

Size not as advertised

I ordered the small crate pad with the stated size of 27"x18"x4" and it is actually 24"x18"x4" so now it won't fit in the crate I ordered. Very frustrating. Haven't been able to have our pup try it out yet since it doesn't fit so I don't know how durable it will be.

The best crate pad

Our 60lB pit mix has gone through at least four other brand name crate pads since we adopted him. The first he chewed as a puppy, nothing to be done there (no bed is chew proof if your dog is determined enough) but he outgrew that stage and since then the other pads have just not held up with nightly use. They sink and become thin and uncomfortable within months. This crate pad however, not a dent in a year! Not even close.Looks like the day we got it. We noticed a difference in his sleep immediately. He sleeps much more soundly and dosen't wake up to reposition himself as much. He was unsure of it for a couple of days- its taller and stiffer then previous pads so he was hesitant about getting in to the crate but quickly overcame that. We recently stopped crating him and repurposed this pad into his favorite bolster bed from Frisco. I doubt we will need to replace it anytime soon but if we do I hope that Big Barker makes a three or four sided couch styled bed. Those are Lou's favorite! Pro tip- We covered our crate pad completely with a soft fleece blanket. It protected the pad from accidents -including one extremely bad tummy and was softer to the touch then the durable cover. Which we have never had to do more then spot clean.

Not chewed up

The longest a crate pad has lasted in the past is three hours. This is great with no tags or stitching to attract attention and very comfortable as well. Highly recommend.

Great Dog Bed!

This is the second Big Barker bed that I've purchased. The first one was at least ten years old. It provides good support for an old dog. This bed is durable and the cover is washable.

Didn’t last 2 days

My 25 lb Whippet puppy tore a giant hole in this product within 2 days of receiving it. It didn’t tear on the seam, she was able to tear a hole in the surface of the cover. She’s not a particularly agressive chewer. Definitely not the quality I was expecting for the price.

Big Barkers are excellent

The Big Barker crate pads are fantastic. My 2 pups love them. They don’t loose their shape or fullness. They stand up to my 2 heavy chewers
