Description

The Big Barker Jr. Pillow Top with Headrest Orthopedic Dog Bed is a very special bed for your very special dog. Made with an ultra-high quality, Certi-PUR US foam for dogs under 50 pounds, this bed will retain 90% of its original shape for an entire decade—no flattening or “pancake” beds! The foam is also specially engineered with orthopedic support, which molds gently around his pressure points and keeps them from ever touching the hard floor. And with the built-in headrest for him to nuzzle up against, this bed is nothing short of a dream for your deserving dog. It’s also easy to clean, thanks to the removable microfiber cover that is soft to the touch.

Instructions

Cleaning the Dog Bed Cover: Our dog bed covers are machine washable. Wash on cold, tumble dry. Our microfiber also does not shrink. As long as you wash on cold & tumble dry, they can be washed 1,000 times and they won’t shrink by more than fractions of a millimeter.

Cleaning the Foam: The foam can be cleaned, but it’s a bit more hassle than washing the cover. If there’s ever an accident or a spill on the foam, what you want to do is soak the affected area thoroughly with warm water and dish soap. Let it sit for 5 - 10 minutes. Then press out as much moisture as you can. Do not “wring out” the foam, because wet foam is very heavy and tears very easily. Leave it in a dry place. It might take a couple days to completely dry out, but when it does, it should be good as new.

FAQ

Are the beds waterproof?

The microfiber covers are water-resistant, but not 100% waterproof. Things like drool, licking or a wet dog coming in from the rain will NOT get through the fabric.

Microfiber is a very tightly woven fabric, so the "holes" are very very tiny. Drool, wet fur, etc will be blocked by the microfiber cover.

However - if you spilled a glass of water on the cover and let it sit for a long time, it WILL get through.

What if my dog won't use the bed?

While most dogs love the bed right away, it's not uncommon for some dogs to take up to a few weeks before getting used to a new bed. Don't worry, almost all dogs fall in love with the bed, it just takes some dogs longer than others.

Here are a few tips that have worked for other dog owners:

  1. Rub your hands all over the cover. It often helps to get your own scent on the bed.
  2. Lay on the bed yourself. This might get your dog interested in approaching and possibly stepping onto the bed.
  3. If your dog's old bed has a removable cover, take it off and lay it on top of the new bed. This can sometimes make the new bed seem more familiar.
  4. Put the bed in the exact spot where he lays while you're home. In my house, it's often right next to the couch. It doesn't need to stay in this spot, but it can often jump start the "trying out the new bed" process.
  5. Old fashion bribery. Get your dog to lay down on it, then bribe with a treat. Bribe every few minutes it stays on without getting up.

Most importantly though, just give it time.

Are the beds chew proof?

No, the cover is not made from chew resistant material. We use a furniture grade microfiber. It's "tear resistant" - meaning, it holds up better against nesting/digging than most types of dog bed covers. But dogs can chew through it if they're determined.

How do I clean my Big Barker products?

Dog Bed Covers

Our dog bed covers are machine washable. Wash on cold, tumble dry. Our microfiber also does not shrink. As long as you wash on cold & tumble dry, they can be washed 1,000 times and they won’t shrink by more than fractions of a millimeter. They’re also very easy to take on and off. Most dog beds just zip on a single side, but we use zipper around 3 sides.

Crate Pad Covers

The crate pad covers are also machine washable, however it’s easier to clean them with just a wet rag. Since they’re made with waterproof backing, don’t worry about getting the foam wet. If soiled, you can wipe with warm soapy water. Any dish soap will do. If you do choose to machine wash, use low heat. Dry on low for 10-15 minutes. IMPORTANT: Never use high heat settings in the washer or dryer, high heat will destroy the waterproof backing.

Waterproof liners

Machine washable. Wash on low heat, dry on low for no more than 10-15 minutes. Drying the liner on high temperature settings will destroy the waterproof backing.

Cleaning the Foam

The foam can be cleaned, but it’s a bit more hassle than washing the cover. If there’s ever an accident or a spill on the foam, what you want to do is soak the affected area thoroughly with warm water and dish soap. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Then press out as much moisture as you can. Do not “wring out” the foam, because wet foam is very heavy and tears very easily. Leave it in a dry place. It might take a couple days to completely dry out, but when it does, it should be good as new.

    Big Barker Bed

    By on

    Disappointed in this product. Not as good as the full size beds. Either cover is too big or foam has not expanded enough.

    Abigail's New Bed

    By on

    I bought a medium-sized, Big Barker Jr, headrest edition bed. I received it on time. Unfortunately, the top layer of foam was defective; and the bed would not expand to its full size. I contacted Big Barker about the problem. Big Barker's rep, upon looking at a picture of it, agreed that something was wrong and immediately asked for my shipping address so that they could send a replacement. At that time, I asked about upsizing to a large; and it was no problem. Big Barker sent shipping labels so that I could send back the smaller bed. In all, even though I originally received a defective bed, Big Barker immediately rectified the situation. The process could not have been easier.

In all, even though I originally received a defective bed, Big Barker immediately rectified the situation. The process could not have been easier. And the Rep could not have been friendlier. I received the large bed shortly thereafter. At first, Abby sniffed at it but would not get on it. After I placed the bed in the spot where her old pillow bed was, and placed her pillow bed on top of it (to transfer scent), she stepped on it with her front feet and then turned and walked away. However, when she was ready to nap, she got right on it and has used it since. The bed is really comfortable (yes, I lied down on it after checking that nobody was around to see it); and even certain generous, but not overly robust, muscles did not bottom it out. The bed and cover look to be of superior quality; as compared to what I scrutinized in big-box stores. The burgundy cover is gorgeous. Even though Big Barker beds appear to be a bit pricey; when you look at the pricing of other beds and compare the materials, as far as quality and durability, the Big Barker beds are not really that pricey at all. Plus, ratings guides had Big Barker rated very highly, especially for durability. And note that many other types of beds are much higher in price; with some types using egg-crate foam instead of memory foam. So, when you look at price; in combination with quality, durability and aesthetics; purchasing one Big Barker bed instead of numerous cheaper beds over time; makes Big Barker beds even more economical. By the way, I do not usually write reviews, and now y'all can see why! … more

    Comfy mat a bit pricey.

    By on

    Came packaged real tight so you have to flatten foam mat following provided instructions, easy enough just don’t expect to use it right away. The foam is of good quality and will certainly provide comfort for your dog. It also fits the crate perfectly and the ( red ) color looks good. The cover is soft and dogs can easily rip it or chew it bug i knew that. Zippers on the cover are pretty small so i am not sure how they’d fare after a few months of use. Overall satisfied with the product especially the comfort although i gave 3 stars because I think it’s pricey for a piece of foam and a cover.

    Cat won't let dog use his new bed!

    By on

    Material quality is good and the bed expanded as indicated in the instructions. I purchased the bed for my 11 year old dogs. However it was first used by my 11 year old cat. Yogi gives a thumbs up on the bed. Oskar & Missy get to use the bed when Yogi is else where.

    Great bed!

    By on

    I got this bed for a 20 lb. poodle. It is well constructed and seems to be very comfortable. It takes about a day for the inner mattress to come to full shape. It had been compressed to be easier to ship. The mattress cover goes on easily and it machine washes well. My dog started using it right away.....and so did the cat when the dog is not around! As usual, Chewy got it to me very quickly!.
