The Big Barker Miniature Orthopedic Dog Bed Review

Dog Beds

The 4 lb., Big Barker miniature orthopedic dog bed is ideal for small and medium-sized dogs, typically those that weigh between 20 and 50 pounds. Big Barker provides a ten-year guarantee- promising that its memory-foam will maintain at least 90% of its shape and feel, or your money back.

This is an American-made product, not a cheap Chinese knockoff, so you can rest assured that the quality will be up to par for your pets needs, whether you own a Bull Terrier or a Bassett Hound. It comes in 2 sizes- a small size that measures 27" x 18" and a medium-size that measures 33" x 21".

It also comes in three different colors: burgundy, chocolate and khaki. The cover zips off for easy cleaning- so if your Australian Shepherd dirties it gnawing on a milk bone, you can always give it a quick wash.

Remember to measure your dog prior to purchase- or use a handy online sizing calculator
