Our Experience with the Kurgo Lifetime Warranty

We already knew that Kurgo makes some of the most durable dog accessories around, with a lifetime warranty, and we recently needed to put that guarantee to the test with our Kurgo Wander Hammock Dog Car Seat Cover. This version protects both the back seats as well as the back of the front seats. It also keeps Daisy from poking into the front seats while we are driving.

We’ve had two of these car seat covers, one in each of our cars, for about 6 years. They’ve done their job keeping our car seats clean and have been easy to care for. Usually just a quick vacuum or spot clean has taken care of business, but recently I noticed that the back lining was deteriorating and leaving a flaky mess on the back seats in my car. I’m guessing this was due to the amount of sun and heat that my car gets year-round here in South Florida. We double checked the cover in Woof Woof Papa’s car and it is still in great shape so this may have just been some kind of fluke.

I was disappointed but knew that Kurgo has a lifetime warranty, so I visited their website to see what to do about getting a replacement. Usually, there are all kinds of loopholes and hoops to jump through with company warranties, but Kurgo only required that I fill out a web form, upload photos and details about the purchase location and date, and within 2 days I’d received an email with shipping notification of our free replacement.

There aren’t that many companies out there willing to guarantee their products for life, but we can certainly confirm that the Kurgo Lifetime Warranty is 100% LEGIT.

People have asked me before if Kurgo dog products are worth the extra price. Yes, they are a little more expensive than some other brands, but you get what you pay for. Their products are designed for active dogs, outdoor and travel. And they really stand by their products, so you never have to worry if something goes wrong. I feel even more confident than ever in recommending their products to our fellow dog moms and dads.

Check out the Kurgo website for dog car seat covers, pet first aid kits, collars, harnesses, dog life jackets, pet travel and more active dog and pet safety products.

Important Note: you can find many Kurgo products for sale on Amazon but make sure that you check that the seller is actually Kurgo Products. My understanding is that the Lifetime Warranty only applies to authorized sellers, so it’s not worth saving a few bucks if you risk voiding the replacement guarantee.

How to Choose a Really Great Dog Bed for a Really Big Dog

If you’ve got a big dog, then you know that a regular, cheap dog bed won’t last and won’t provide the support they need. Buying a big dog bed is an investment, so we’ve done some research and we are really impressed with one company in particular. Big Barker is a US-based company that makes ultra high-quality dog beds designed especially for large, extra large, and HUGE dogs.

If you’ve got a Labrador, a Golden Retriever, Husky, German Shepherd, Rottweiler, Doberman, Newfoundland, Mastiff, Great Dane, Irish Wolfhound or other large dog breed then you will want to learn more about these large dog beds. If you’ve got two dogs who like to sleep in the same bed, or an older dog with orthopedic issues then you might also want to check out Big Barker dog beds.

How to choose the right size and style big dog bed

The Big Barker beds are all made in the USA with 7″ of American Made therapeutic foam and all come with a 10 year warranty covering flattening and shape, so it’s almost a no-brainer, but there are still a couple of decisions to make before getting one.

First, determine the size bed your dog needs. These beds come in Large, Extra Large and Giant. See the size chart above or use this link for more detailed information.

Next decide if your dog would prefer a dog bed with a bolster headrest or one that is completely flat. Our dog Daisy likes her flat dog bed and often hangs her head over the side when she sleeps, but also likes using the sofa arm rest as a head rest sometimes, so I’m thinking of getting her a second bed with a bolster so she can have both options.

Finally, choose a color. This is mostly a personal preference based on what you like and what color dog bed compliments your home decor. Practically speaking, also think about how much your dog sheds and what color their fur is.

All of the Big Barker bed covers are washable, but in-between washing some dog hair is going to show, so take that into account. Replacement bed covers are also available, so you can switch colors if you like.

They also offer optional Waterproof Dog Bed Liners designed to fit whatever bed you get, as well as SUV Dog Beds and Crate Pads for large dogs.
