Not as advertisedBed is stiff and “crunchy”. Whats worse is it ripped at the seams within weeks. It’s honestly the worst bed I’ve ever purchased. I emailed the company and they only offered 25% discount for next purchase. What happened to their guarantee?? lol. Kinda a scam. Show details
Lack of customer supportThe bed itself seems fine, my dog hasn't taken to it though and I have not tried unzipping it to see whats underneath. The company doesn't outright state they won't accept returns or exchanges if you take the bed out of the packaging. There's no way to test the bed with your pet as you can't return it if you open the packaging. The mattress part is hard, very hard. The bed also isnt the shape of standard kennels.
Zip jammed on first useThey state that the cover is easy to remove. That is not the case when the zip jams! However to their credit they sent out a replacement cover straight away. Show details
Expensive, mattress too hard, internal zip pulled apart and unrepairableI bought a large Barney bed for my dog with arthritis. The Barney bed was too hard for him and he wouldn't use it until I bought a softer dog bed as a topper, defeating the original purpose. The fourth time I washed the cover (by now out of 1 year warranty), the zip pulled apart when I was re-assembling the baffles at the sides. (Complicated design/difficult process.) I found there is no way to re-connect the two sides of the light-weight zip once this happens SEE PHOTO. (It's one very long zip cut with scissors and stitched across at both ends... Read more instead of having a normal zip start and zip end. SEE PHOTO) Anyone removing the cover to wash risks the sides of the zip pulling apart. The light-weight, non-repairable internal zip for the baffles (at side of the bed) does not meet the fit for purpose requirement of Australian consumer law. Barney web site says a new cover "just like the original" ie with same flaw, can be purchased for another $176 (large). I am sorry I wasted my money on this product which is not fit for purpose. The photo of my zip problem says it all. Hundreds of dollars for this quality zip?????
Bed looked nothing like the promotional materialBed looked nothing like the promotional material. There is not enough foam to fill the cover, looks terrible. Construction is otherwise average at best. For the price it is absolutely unacceptable.
Dogs Love it!We've had our Barney Bed for 3 years now and its still in amazing condition. We got a second cover so we could switch out covers. I have two dogs that use it and they haven't eaten or destroyed it. If dogs could talk they'd tell Barney Bed creators THANK YOU. Show details
Best spot in the houseCrash Simpson the bulldog has always hated his beds & often ate them as a sign of protest. I bought the Barney Bed hoping it would survive & to my surprise it did! The cover lasted 5 days (smeh) but the bed is his favourite spot! It’s so comfy & good for his weight carrying joints. Would definitely invest in this bed I can see my house gremlin having this for years to come. Show details
Not worth itI bought the large bed for Golden Retriever. First day, the zip came off and the zipper is not strong enough to hold the bed and my retrieve took out the foam. I contacted the live chat support and they asked me to send the photos which I did. Later they replied me saying the photos are not clear etc.. (the photos were taken from my S23Ultra). Now I think I shouldn't hv spent that much money and trusted the hype, should hv bought cheaper one. Show details
BEST.DOG.BED.EVER !!!!The best dog bed you will ever buy ! Ive had my Barney Bed for over a year now and it still looks as fresh and new as the first day I received it. When I first got my Labradoodle I went through a few 'pet shop' dog beds and they were either really hard to wash, or would have a dog smell even after washing, or loose their shape. I initially didn't buy the Barney Bed because I thought it was expensive but after spending money on 3-4 dog beds I could have just bought one good quality bed from Barney. Its definitely worth every dollar, its sooo eas... Read morey to wash, its waterproof, aesthetically pleasing, and very supportive and sturdy. My dog also really loves sleeping and lounging in it, he even takes himself off to bed and we find him curled up! Customer Service is wonderful and super helpful when I was trying to decide on what size to order. Im so pleased with this bed that I literally just ordered another one for our living room. Great product, Australian made and my little pooch is happy !!
Covers are not well made. Warranty is a jokeI have a medium bed with the standard cover. It has come apart at the seams. I told Barney about this manufacturing fault. I was told to repair it myself at a Tailor's It would only cost $20. I have no proof of perched because it was a gift. But regardless it is a manufacturing fault. I don't think I am the only one this has happened too. I wouldnt recommend this product due to the crap warranty, faulty manufacturing and horrible customer service. Not worth the money. See photos for the issue and respond from Barney.
My dog actually wants to sleep in his bed!This has been a wonderful purchase, from the moment i placed the order I had lots of help choosing the correct size to working out the cover I wanted. The covers are machine washable and do not fall apart. The quality has been amazing and I love being able to change the cover - so it looks like a totally new bed! Show details

The Original and the Best! "Barney" Bed when only the best will do for your beloved PetThese beds are of a superior quality to any others I have purchased, after owning & fostering over 12 dogs my very first Barney Bed is still in mint condition! I've only had to replace 1 cover since purchasing the bed with an extra cover and only because it had worn a bit thin. The covers have lasted many years of use and washing. The local team provide exceptional customer service and helpful advice. Don't be fooled by inferior cheap copies, you get what you pay for! Show details
Barney Bed - the perfect bed for a good night sleepI recently purchased the Barney Bed for my beloved furry Husky companion, and I must say, it has exceeded all my expectations. From the moment I unboxed it, I could tell that this dog bed was designed with both comfort and durability in mind.
The first thing that caught my attention was the quality of the materials used. The bed's plush surface is incredibly soft to the touch, providing an inviting and cozy spot for my dog to snuggle up on. The cushioning is just right – not too firm, not too soft – striking that perfect balance that supports m... Read morey dog's joints while still being supremely comfortable. One of the standout features of this dog bed is its construction. The stitching is robust, and the bed has maintained its shape even after weeks of use. It's clear that this is a product built to withstand the test of time. Plus, the non-slip bottom is a brilliant touch; it stays in place even when my dog enthusiastically plops onto it. Cleaning the bed is a breeze as well. The removable cover is machine-washable, and I've found that it holds up well to repeated washes. This is a huge plus, especially for those inevitable moments when muddy paws or accidental spills occur. But the true testament to this dog bed's excellence is my dog's reaction. The moment I introduced him to it, he immediately snuggled in and seemed to be in absolute bliss. It's become his go-to spot for lounging and napping, and I can tell he genuinely loves it. In conclusion, the Barney Bed has proven to be a fantastic investment. Its superior comfort, durability, and thoughtful design make it a standout choice among the many options available. Both my furry friend and I couldn't be happier with this purchase!
These beds are amazing and such great quality!We have three of these beds and my dogs live on them and love them so much Show details
