The Best Big Dog Beds!

Big dog beds need to be not just roomy, but sturdy and durable too…. and that’s exactly what you’ll find here 🙂

Of course when your big ‘un is still a puppy, finding a bed to fit isn’t too hard, but once he becomes an adolescent and then an adult, finding a bed that won’t cramp his style, or collapse within a week, gets a bit trickier!

Many of our big dogs have joint problems, and can suffer from arthritis and other degenerative conditions as they get older. This is where orthopedic foam dog beds can make all the difference.

As with most things, the bigger the dog the higher the costs involved, and these beds aren’t the cheapest you’ll find… but they are the best and all of them give you excellent value for money.


Big Barker Dog Beds

I’m going to start out with the Big Barker range because it’s specifically designed for large, x-large and giant breeds… and that includes Rottweilers, Great Danes, Mastiffs and so on.

  • Available in two styles, three sizes and three colors.
  • Comprehensive 10 year warranty (yes, 10 years!)

More Great Quality Big Dog Beds

There are lots of different brands, styles and designs of dog beds.

Most of them are great for young, healthy small/medium sized breeds.

Not all of them are great choices for big dogs though – simply because they’re not strong enough or big enough.

But there ARE choices, here are a few more examples of beds that I personally feel are high quality, durable, and able to give your Rottie (or other large breed) the support and comfort he/she needs.


Orvis Tempur-Pedic Foam Dream Lounger Dog Bedicon

  • Made with 4″ thick tempur-pedic memory foam
  • Water-resistant, breathable liner
  • Removable, washable cover

  • Made from 5″ thick medical-grade memory foam
  • Durable rip-stop ‘ballistic’ cover
  • Machine-washable cover
  • Comfy, foam bolsters on 3 sides


Kuranda Aluminum Chewproof Dog Bed, XL

  • Easy to clean
  • Available in S, M & L sizes too


Budget-Friendly Dog Beds For Large Breeds

All of the beds featured earlier on this page are relatively expensive when compared to your average, pet-store bed.

BUT I believe they are worth the extra $$$’s because of the quality of materials, the support they provide, and their durability.

However, for lots of reasons it’s not always possible for us to spend $100+ or more on a bed, even if it IS excellent value for money.

So, with that in mind I’ve picked a couple of more mid-priced beds that are available in L and/or XL sizes, are comfy, and also have reasonable support….

CPC Ortho Sleeper Large Comfort Couch with Removable Cushion, Caramel

  • Definitely a BIG bed (48″ x 69″)
  • 2″ medical-grade orthopedic foam base
  • 100% polyfill cushion and bolsters
  • Reversible cover. Velvet microfiber/fleece
  • Removable cover is machine washable


XXL Orthopedic Dog Bed

  • Measures @ 55″ x 37″
  • Stuffed with shredded foam/poly-fill
  • Water-resistant inner liner
  • Durable 100% cotton denim cover
  • Removable/washable cover
