Main Line Doggie Giveaway: Big Barker Dog Bed

Enter to win your Big Barker and read about this Philadelphia entrepreneur's journey to create an innovative and supportive dog bed for large breeds.

My fuzzy kids have taught me a lot about living my best life: embrace every opportunity for adventure and snuggles with enthusiasm. Hailey, my almost-12-year-old golden retreiver, gently leans up against anyone she meets on hikes and walks, while Cody, our 5 year-old Golden Glory Pup, bounds about with enthusiasm and joy everywhere he goes. When I discovered Big Barker, an American-made supportive bed for big dogs, I was excited to try it out and present it as a giveaway for our Main Line Parent Community!

Big dogs like Cody are built for big, active lives, and we keep a close eye on his health to ensure our adventures don’t get cut short by stiffness, pain, and joint conditions like hip dysplasia, all of which disproportionately afflict large breed dogs. Hailey has been aging well, but we can tell that she feels her bones and joints more as time passes. Do YOU have a big dog who would benefit from a therepeutic dog bed? Tell us about them in the comments to enter to win your Big Barker!

Philadelphia Entrepreneur, Eric Shannon created the Big Barker Dog Bed to solve the biggest problem in the dog bed industry: no-one was making supportive dog beds for big dogs. Because Eric’s own dog Hank was diagnosed with hip dysplasia as a puppy, this mission is close his heart.


Every Big Barker is handmade by experienced furniture craftsmen in Delaware and Pennsylvania using a proprietary 3-stage blend of American-made foam that helps a dog feel like they are lying on a cloud, enveloping their joints in comfort. In a recent clinical study conducted by UPenn, the performance results were unanimous: decreased pain, improved joint function and gait, as well as dramatically reduced night activity.

Imagine what your dog could do with less joint pain and more mobility. This is what it means for big dogs to live longer, more engaged, more enjoyable lives. Big Barker beds are engineered to support big dogs in all the right ways, ensuring good nights and better, more active days.

    Hi Sarah!
    This is such perfect timing. Three weeks ago we adopted Hudson, a 9 month old Presa Canario. Hudson is already 104 pounds and may get as big as 130-140! He is a gentle giant with the greatest personality. He doesn’t know how big he is and is always trying to sit in my lap. I have two children who already adore him. He is so sweet with them and takes all their hugs and kisses in stride. He is a great dog and would love this new bed!!

    We have a big furry friend named Henley! He’s a sweet 2 year old golden retreiver!
