Backseat Barker Dog Bed for SUV or Jeep Review

The Backseat Barker SUV Dog Bed

Dog Car Bed for Jeep & SUV - Backseat Barker Review
If Merlin had a middle name, it would be "Go"!  He never wants to be left behind.  Therefore, we sought and found a wonderful dog bed for our old jeep.

As you can see in the photo, we laid the dog bed directly on the jeep floor.  That required us to find a dog bed that was thick enough to really cushion and separate him from the hard, unforgiving surface. 

Normally the pillows on each side would lay at an angle.  In our case, we wanted the larger size bed so the pillows would stand upright on the side and give him more protection from the hard side panels of our jeep.  Merlin likes to stand up and look around even when the car is moving.  Protecting our "big dog" is always our first priority.  

When we are traveling in our SUV instead of our little Jeep, we simply move the Big Barker to the larger vehicle.  Here is a picture of Merlin on his Big Barker bed in our SUV.  As you can see, the side pillows tilt to the sides and make a great head rest for our big dog.

The Backseat Barker Dog Bed for Cars, SUV, & Jeeps


There are several features about the Backseat Barker that would prompt me to recommend it for dogs.  First and foremost, the thickness of the orthopedic cushion provides a more comfortable ride for our "big dog".

I left that one side up slightly after Merlin got out, so you could easily
see the thickness of the bottom pad

The size of the bottom bed cushion is perfect for our jeep floor.  As you can see, the large 3" thick cushion goes all the way up to the back of the front seats.  Therefore, Merlin can stretch out comfortably when he wishes to lay down and still be close to us.

As I said in the introduction, I also love the side pillows!  Normally, in a larger SUV, the pillows would be slightly tilted so a pup could use them for propping his head on them.

There are several sizes of the Backseat Barker Dog Bed available.  We purchased the Extra Large (61 x 45 x 3) dog car bed so it would fit snugly in the back of our jeep, which has a smaller area in the back than an SUV.  

The cover has zippers on the bottom pad and on the pillow sections.  That allows us to remove all 3 of the foam pieces and machine wash & dry the cover when needed.  According to the manufacturers, the foam can also be washed and air-dried, but that has not been necessary for us yet.

The Backseat Barker Dog Beds come with a 10 year warranty.  We all understand the importance of a trustworthy warranty.

One note, like most orthopedic foam, the foam in the beds have a strong odor.  We let Merlins' bed foams air out for about 3 days and I washed the cover immediately.  After a few days, all was well, no more smell!

  1. I actually did not know that dog beds for vehicles were available, but I can see by your photos just how great they would be for dogs. Much more comfortable than lying or sitting on a hard surface and safer for bumps and jolts.

  2. I love that your big boy always travels in comfort. You are a wonderful fur baby mama. Looks like a great bed for my Toby. He would also need an XL ortho cushion. Great tip about airing out a new dog bed. We don't want our big babies breathing in anything toxic. It may not smell that bad to us, but to their sensitive noses it must be pretty overpowering... all those protective chemicals.

  3. Oh that is such a great idea. I know when my son got his dog (just a little French Bulldog), they also got him a bed to use in the car. Guess what? The same brand name as this bed. Dougal (the dog loves it) and his family does too. It's a great dog bed for travelling with pets.

  4. We aren't dog owners but I can sure understand that the floor on some of our vehicles must be very uncomfortable. This is a brilliant product and a great review!

  5. Merlin is beautiful. What a face! Love him. What a great purchase for the car and doggie. Looks very comfy indeed. Good tip about airing it out because of the strong smells when you first buy these. Honestly we had a dog, I'd want one of these.

  6. A great looking bed, if we still had our SUV that would've been ideal especially when we still had our 'big girl' around. I only have a small car these days so my 'little man' sits upright on the backseat so he can watch where we're going (and stick his head out the window of course!)

  7. Looks like a winner! and I'm sure your furball is appreciative!
