  • Well worth it Review by Richard (Posted on 2/17/2017)
    Overall Quality
    Hallelujah, I just ordered the second K9 Ballistics crate mat for my dog, Millie. I never thought I'd find a mat she couldn't chew up, but thanks to you, I did! It's well worth the higher price and I'll recommend it to all my buddies who have pups. Thanks again!
  • Works for my dogs! Review by Marge (Posted on 2/12/2017)
    Overall Quality
    I first ordered these crate pads for an Olde English Bulldog cross breed, Floyd, who has jaws of steel. All his crate pads are still in tact, one year later. When we adopted a year old Doberman, he came with the reputation of destroying every piece of bedding he had been given. I ordered him a crate pad like those I got for Floyd and he has yet to lay a tooth on it, 3 weeks later. The pad lays nicely in the bottom of his crate without any tempting bumps or wrinkles to attract his attention. I think that may be the reason he chooses not to chew.

    After going through a few crate pads

    my boy,Cooper doesn't bother it except to sleep on it.

    Which he enjoys doing.

    A great purchase, I will definitely recommend this product and

    your website to my friends and acquaintences.

    I put the pad in Cooper's (8 months old lab) crate on 1/21/17. Immediately, he made a valiant effort to destroy it. After about 15 minutes he gave up. He gives it daily another shot. So far unsuccessfully. This is the first bed that has lasted more than 12 hours.

    My dog has litterally destroyed every bed he has ever had, as well as a metal kennel. He has had his new kennel pad for about a week now and its still together. I'm seriously impressed. Next up to see if the crate cover will survive him.

  • Amazing Crate Pad Review by Camille (Posted on 1/31/2017)
    Overall Quality
    My very active chewing German Shephard loves this crate pad and has not even attempted to chew on it, I can not say that for the countless blankets and pads he has destroyed in mere minutes before receiving this incredible Pad! He did not spend any time beforehand in his crate voluntarily, now he goes in and lays down, just chillin'! I highly recommend this product and have also ordered the crate cover and can not wait to get that too!

    Well didn't last long.
    Received Friday morning, put in crate at noon, and by 5 pm had hole chewed in it.

    Waiting to get another one and try it out.
  • Good and thank you for your guarnatee! Review by Ann (Posted on 1/29/2017)
    Overall Quality
    So far, replacement crate pad doing well! I throughly cleaned the crate and painted with a solution of alum (a bitter pickling spice) dissolved in hot water, treated the pad with Bitter Yuck and let dry. Would suggest anyone using the pump spray of Bitter Yuck wear gloves and a mask so as not to get on hands when handling the pad, and not to inhale, since it is a vile taste and smell! Used the tie downs in the corners since that is where she likes to chew. Hoping this one lasts more than two months! And that she grows out of this stage.
  • Would recommend. Review by Brian (Posted on 1/29/2017)
    Overall Quality
    So far so good; our labradoodle puppy is a chewer and this is the first crate pad that she has not attacked. With the pad secured to the crate, she has not been able to get to the ties, therefore, not chewing the pad.
  • This was a replacement Review by Rabecca (Posted on 1/29/2017)
    Overall Quality
    The pad itself was a replacement for a pad that our dog destroyed. Even when the dog is given other toys to play with, he will eat his bed. He has a need to destroy things. The replacement policy was great. We are not giving our dog his new crate pad until he stops chewing on his bedding. There is not a pad out there that my dog can't eat.

  • Chew Resistent: Yes. Easy to Clean: No. Review by Wendy (Posted on 1/28/2017)
    Overall Quality
    Big, beautiful, comfy bed that my 1 year old Rottweiler seems not to have even considered chewing - which is great. BUT she got sick on it the second week and it's been difficult to clean despite reviews that said otherwise. The way it's bound and sewn left a channel around the entire pad where debris collected and was hard to remove. Two washes later (big washing machine & supersized load) still didn't clean even the surface very well. I hit it with wet wipes and cleaner and febreze for the odor - which also has remained. Currently it's on it's third day outside with the hope it will "air out". I would have thought the fabric would have been as resistant to stains and odor as it was to tears but that has not been the case. So at this point the $80 bed is on the deck rail and my dog is back lying on her metal crate floor. Had to give it 3 out of 5 paws review because a dog bed needs to be tough and washable and this one wasn't.

  • Customer service is fantastic! Review by Carl (Posted on 1/27/2017)
    Overall Quality
    I purchased a large crate pad for my new addition, a year old German Shepherd rescue, unsure if she would respect it or not. After 1 week she chewed a small hole in the back of of the pad. I sent an email with my warranty request and was answered the next day. Long story short, the new bed is here, free of charge as stated, with the advice to wait until she is a bit older and past the chew stage before reintroducing it to her. This is the third rescue Shepherd to get a K9 Ballistics crate pad at my house (the other two dogs are 6 and 8) and is the first time I've needed to use the warranty. I really like the new crate attachments on the bottom of the pads that make it harder for them to be turned into chew toys. My dogs love having the comfortable pads in their crates and I like that they are washable and extremely durable. Super Product!
  • Not that tuff Review by Maddie (Posted on 1/26/2017)
    Overall Quality
    Pros: thin but well padded, true to size
    Cons: not as durable as all the hype might have you believe, 90 day warranty too short of a time frame

    I adopted a 2 year old collie/beagle mix. I ordered a Tuff Crate Pad because he has destroyed every other bed/pad. I received it in Sept. 2016. In December, just after the 90 day warranty of course, my dog put the first small hole in the top side of the pad. Not a big enough hole to throw out the pad though. Today, Jan. 2017, I came home to my dog having ripped open an entire corner of the crate pad and pulled out bits of filling. It lasted 4 whole months which is 2 months longer than any other beds and crate pads. I will be emailing K9 Ballistics photos of the destruction.
  • We love this product, strong, durable and comfortable, does it come in people sizes ? :) Review by Camille (Posted on 1/24/2017)
    Overall Quality
    Even before receiving the pad I was wondering how I could secure it to the crate, how surprised was I when I got it that it had grommet type areas to zip tie it to my German Shephard's crate!!!!! Instantly he went in it and laid down, with a pleased look that said 'FINALLY'! His crate was a boring place that he usually hid in when he knew he did something naughty, now he'said in there and I have to check to see what he has done, nothing, he is just "chillin'"! Absolutely love everything about this pad, he is not the only one saying "Finally" I can not count the blankets he has destroyed! Something tells me he has met his match...THANK YOU!

  • All five of my dogs approve Review by Ashli (Posted on 1/23/2017)
    Overall Quality
    I cannot say enough about the tuff pads by k9 ballistic. Both from a quality and customer service standpoint. We own five dogs and had yet to find a dog bed they could not chew apart for their kennels (we have spent a lot of money trying to find some). They fit perfect and the dogs love them. We even pull them out and put them on the floor for them to use. The material is nice and cleans up easy, you pretty much just have to shake them off. K9 should consider making toys!

    I was also impressed from a customer service standpoint. For some reason my shipping information never showed up for the beds and K9b sent a set of beds the same day I called with no problems at all.

    Our boston terriers, Olive & Clementine love to dig and get all the fluff out of anything. We have tried different beds and blankets, all different materials, and none have lasted. It has been 1 week since we put the beds into their kennels and they're still going very strong. They try and dig a bit, but when we come home from work each night they are still intact. Thank you so much for everything!

    My puppy had chewed thru every bed. I decided to try this Tuff Crate Pad. It's wasn't long before my puppy chewed a corner. However, the company was very great about sending me a replacement pad right away and tips to use so it didn't happen again. Since then the new bed has been great and my puppy hasn't chewed it. This company is great to work with and cares about the quality of their products!

    I purchased the Crate Pad in late NOV and gave it to my dog as a Christmas present. In a mere (3) three days she managed to chew a couple of holes in the pad. I have already received a replacement and this company does stand behind its product. I am going to wait a couple of years to see if the chewing habit stops and then she will get the replacement pad.

    I purchased a Medium Tuff Crate Pad for my dog and we both love it. After 1 month he was able to chew up a bit on the edge of the pad, so I sent an email with my warranty request and was answered the next day. 1 week from the request the new bed is here and in use free of charge as stated.

    The bed is great. Maizey got this new RED one for Christmas and she likes it a lot. The first one we bought was when she was a puppy and she actually chewed through it. You sent us a new one at that time (2014) and she chewed a hole in that one too! She has quite the teeth for a little Springer Spaniel. But we are very happy she is beyond that stage!

  • Not chew proof, not guaranteed Review by Moriah (Posted on 1/15/2017)
    Overall Quality
    I received this large crate pad and after less that 24 hours, my German Shepard had torn through it in 2 places.
    After much research to find something that could stand up to her, I chose this product. It was very disappointing to learn that the "chew proof guarantee" is not really one at all; it's for a one time replacement. I'm not sure what good that will be since she is obviously able to chew through this product, a new one will be no different.
  • Great crate pad Review by Maria (Posted on 1/15/2017)
    Overall Quality
    These are high quality crate pads, for sure. And attractive looking, too. I think the tie-downs for the corners are genius - since the corners are where dogs typically begin their chew. I have a prolific chewer, 8 mo. Lab mix who tends to destroy everything. It's been a month now and she has yet to harm the cushion (and she's tried). I would highly recommend this product.
  • Black lab puppy loves it!!! Review by Jill (Posted on 1/15/2017)

    This is a great crate pad. I introduced it to my 5 month old black lab, Sophie, in the living room just to see what she did. She tried her best to rip and tear. Then I moved it into her crate. She tried again to rip and tear. After two days of this now she loves her pad so much she puts herself in her kennel to nap rather than the couch. What a wonderful product!!!

    Overall Quality
    We have a 3 year old Pit Bull/Rottweiler Mix, he destroys EVERYTHING. He went through a phase of destroying his crate pan, and at $40 for a replacement(time 4 replacements) I gave up. Told him, too bad, you're sleeping on the bars! This past November I started feeling really guilty about him spending work days in his kennel sleeping on the bars. Started to do some research and found these beds. We are almost a week into him having it in his kennel and he hasn't even tried to chew on it. In the past a blanket would last only a few hours. I am keeping my fingers crossed that this review doesn't jinx this, but I am very happy with my purchase!

    We purchased two tuff crate pads in November 2016 for our dogs and they are still in perfect condition. Our 18 month old Golden Doodle has destroyed every pad, blanket, towel; etc placed in his crate or that of our other dog.

  • Couldn't have asked for more! Review by Lisa (Posted on 12/31/2016)
    Overall Quality
    After researching the Tuff Crate Pad and K9 ballistics warranty, I decided to order one for our just 8 month old working German Shepherd. She has been crate trained since day one and after the adjustment period has always liked her crate to some extent. Since putting in the Tuff Crate Pad, I find that Matay is in what I call her apartment more than on her LLBean bed ( which she does love). I ordered the tan pad and it did not come with tie downs. I called customer service asking what I might be missing. They immediately sent me out a new Tuff Crate Pad with tie downs ( some of the colors do not come with the tie downs so be sure to check ). I cannot say enough positive about the fantastic service I received! Not only did they ship one out immediately, they also allowed us to keep the first one which was just two days old with no damage. K9ballistics also changed the warranty date to the new pad date and honored the 90 day warranty. Our GS working pup has chewed blankets, pads, and even pulled a quilt inside from the outside of her crate ( to make her a den atmosphere) and shredded it! After putting the new pad in she has not touched it except on day one to figure it out. She pulled it up and scratched at it but quickly gave up. It is cushioned well and really durable. After the first few days, she loves it and does not try to pull it up or chew it. I hated crating her on the plastic only of her apartment ( crate ) when she was left for only 3 hours a day with our schedules. I finally broke down and ordered her the pad and I am glad I did. She has had it a few weeks now and doesn't even try to chew or pull it. I will be ordering her a bed after she is full grown. K9 ballistics product can't be compared to others and their customer service is fantastic! I will be a repeat customer. Thank you!

    High quality material and construction that has so far resisted my dog's attempts to chew it up. Only thing I would have liked is a few extra of the plastic ties that hold the mat to the crate -- for the technically challenged like myself. The price is equivalent to the cost of the two regular pads he destroyed.
  • Amazing Crate Pad! Review by Lynn (Posted on 12/28/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I'm quite impressed with the construction of this pad, including the attention to detail. We've only had the pad a week & our 14 month old pup only went to chewing on it once, to no avail. Although she tries to dig clean through the pad (not what I'd call fluffing up her bed), she hasn't been able to damage the pad at all. This after having destroyed 6 or more of other brands & types. I had some reservations when ordering, but not now & would recommend this pad to anyone.
  • Happy at first... Review by Janice (Posted on 12/28/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I bought this crate pad for my bullmastiff puppy back in October and he loves it, but about a week ago, I noticed that it was wearing on one side. After looking closer, I found that he has managed to break through the top layer of the fabric on the soft side and although he hasn't chewed it through, I'm worried that he has swallowed some of what has broken off. He's bigger now, so I need a larger pad (to go with his XL crate), but this time I'm going to make sure I keep an eye on it to see what happens. Also, I don't find that it repels odor so I've had to wash it more than I thought I would.

    This one has lasted with our little monster! every pad, bed, blanket that was put in our 11 month old puppy's crate has been destroyed.

    Received the Tuff Crate Pad just before Christmas, and my fur baby loves it. The first thing I noticed was the quality of the material and manufacturing. The second thing was the added corner anchor attachments (and the provided wire ties!), this dog isn't a "chewer" but my other fur baby is. This added feature will allow me to really "test" the chew proof guarantee when I order the nextTuff Crate Pad.

    This pad is pretty darn tough. I caught my Boxer/German Shepherd mix trying to dig her way to China while she was in her crate and she was not phasing this pad. She was able to grab on the corner and pull it up and snapped the zip ties that were provided. No damage to the pad and I installed some stronger zip ties and no more issues with that. I am definitely satisfied with the construction of this product and would recommend it to anyone who has a dog with chewing or digging issues while crated. Thanks K9Ballistics!!

    Overall Quality
    It's a great pad, but not totally safe from chewers. My 11.5 lb. chi/mix has managed to chew a couple smaller holes in it, but then the other morning got through to the stuffing - I put the stuffing it back in, but the corner now looks griseled So, it appears I still can't leave my pup in his crate alone with the pad in there too long after he wakes up in the morning or when I am gone from the house for a few hours. The pad wasn't cheap, so I don't want it destroyed. I wish dogs knew they're sabotaging their own comfort when they chew every item of comfort we give them. It's the best pad I've purchased - just wish my dog didn't consider it a chew toy.

  • This bed will not disappoint you Review by Dana (Posted on 12/24/2016)
    Overall Quality
    We have a 4 month old Doberman pup who is kennel trained and he is a very aggressive chewer. (Have to love the puppy chewing stages). He has ripped up his previous bed and enjoyed pulling it out of his kennel to chew on it even more. With his new K9 Ballistic bed he has attempted to chew and scratch the bed open with no success ! We also love that you can tie the bed down to the crate (we have a wire crate). We simply zip tied it down and it has not budged or ripped even with all of his attempts to get the bed out of the crate!!
    We will soon be getting a bigger kennel for him and will surely be ordering again as our Doberman pup gets older and bigger.
    The product is amazing and will not disappoint you.

  • Great quality, but our puppy just wasn't ready Review by Weim mom (Posted on 12/23/2016)
    Overall Quality
    The quality of the crate pad is great, and the customer service was terrific. Our weim puppy chewed the first one in less than 24 hours, and took slightly longer before she figured out how to destroy the second one. We took all of the precautions and used the zip ties for the corners, and I even removed the tag. She just figured out a way to get at the corner and has since chewed more. We are hoping she will grow out of it at some point, and would definitely invest in another pad.
  • Kobie the pitmix destroyer...... Review by Andrea (Posted on 12/23/2016)

    The first pad lasted about two weeks and then Kobie was able to shed it.....K9 sent us a replacement pad (which came very quick) and that one lasted only a week.

  • Overall Great Product Review by Jason (Posted on 12/22/2016)
    Overall Quality
    The crate pad has proven to be a pretty tough product thus far. We have two male dachshunds and as you know they are very persistent diggers. We have spent countless dollars on beds for their crate that last one night maybe before they total unpack the stuffing.The first night we had the K9 ballistics pad they tore a small hole in one corner after hours of tugging and chewing,however, with the tough ripstop material. ..the boys gave up and haven't tried again.They have tried long bouts of digging into the pad to no avail...My family would definitely recommend K9 ballistics products for your pet's crate.The only reason that we rated this product as a 4 instead of 5 is because they did tear a small hole in one corner,but no stuffing was removed and we've washed and dried the pad several times with no further breaching of the material.Overall great product ... extremely satisfied customer.

  • I bet this lasts forever!! Review by Marie (Posted on 12/22/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I bought the biggest bed they make with the little raised edges around the back and sides and 2 crate pads... I have a lab who likes to eat blankets and pillows and swallow them. I was so sad that I had to put him in his plastic crate without anything soft to lay on. I've had his crate pad awhile now and no problems so far. The material is VERY durable! My husband and I broke into a sweat shoving the "tubes" of stuffing that make up the sides of the bed into the material and zipping it up... But it's so squishy and comfortable. My 80-lb dog and 55-lb dog fit on the largest bed side by side, with extra room to spare. I am so happy I bought the Tuff bed and Tuff crate pads!!!!

    I am a Weimaraner breeder and my dogs destroy everything I give them to be comfortable in their crates. So I thought I would try these crate pads as a last ditch effort. The pads held up well until I gave one to my 6 month old pup. Granted he is teething and is on a chewing frenzy at the moment. K9 ballistics sent me a replacement bed within a week! And its christmas time so i wasnt expecting such fast results! My adults will get these beds and I will wait out my pup. Very happy with these beds and the quick response and replacement bed.

    This is the perfect crate pad! It is the exact dimensions of my dog's crate. It's durable and comfortable without being bulky. The second day we had it, my dog lost a dog treat under one corner of the mat. She scratched, dug, and bit at the corner in order to pull the mat back to get to her treat. Not a single sign of wear on the crate pad! It definitely seems to be tough enough for my Carolina Dogs. Will definitely be buying more from K-9 Ballistics.
  • Fantastic customer service and product! Thank you Review by Matay's Mom :) (Posted on 12/17/2016)
    Overall Quality
    After researching the Tuff Crate Pad and K9 ballistics warranty, I decided to order one for our just 8 month old working German Shepherd. She has been crate trained since day one and after the adjustment period has always liked her crate to some extent. Since putting in the Tuff Crate Pad, I find that Matay is in what I call her apartment more than on her LLBean bed ( which she does love). I ordered the tan pad and it did not come with tie downs. I called customer service asking what I might be missing. They immediately sent me out a new Tuff Crate Pad with tie downs ( some of the colors do not come with the tie downs so be sure to check ). I cannot say enough positive about the fantastic service I received! Not only did they ship one out immediately, they also allowed us to keep the first one which was just two days old with no damage. K9ballistics also changed the warranty date to the new pad date and honored the 90 day warranty. Our GS working pup has chewed blankets, pads, and even pulled a quilt inside from the outside of her crate ( to make her a den atmosphere) and shredded it! After putting the new pad in she has not touched it except on day one to figure it out. She pulled it up and scratched at it but quickly gave up. It is cushioned well and really durable. After the first few days, she loves it and does not try to pull it up or chew it. I hated crating her on the plastic only of her apartment ( crate ) when she was left for only 3 hours a day with our schedules. I finally broke down and ordered her the pad and I am glad I did. She has had it a few weeks now and doesn't even try to chew or pull it. I will be ordering her a bed after she is full grown. K9 ballistics product can't be compared to others and their customer service is fantastic! I will be a repeat customer. Thank you!

    This is a great pad. When my dogs were puppies, they slept together in one crate and they loved the Tuff Crate Pad, although they did manage to chew a small hole in it. It was promptly replaced at no charge. They recently went to two separate crates, so they each got their own pad. They have not chewed these pads at all, nor have they been able to scratch a hole in them--they like to dig now. They love sleeping on their new "mattresses." I recommend these pads.

  • Noisy, hard on dogs mouth, still able to make holes in it Review by Matt (Posted on 11/30/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I've had this pad for three weeks, perhaps my puppy is more of a chewer than most but she's managed to make several holes in the choice. Also, the material although very durable is also abrasive, so she's ended up with bleeding lips from her chewing. I suppose this might dissuade some dogs but it hasn't seemed to make much difference for her. I will also say that I find the material to be quite noisy so I've had to move her crate to a different room farther away because it was difficult to sleep due to the noise everytime she'd shift in the crate. Overall if your puppy isn't that determined of a chewer I'm sure this pad would be fine.

  • Measure your crate before ordering Review by Rosemarie (Posted on 11/26/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Ordered my THIRD Tuff crate pad. My dogs LOVE the two I already have and the large one is not in a crate but in the dog room where the dogs like to hang out. They love having something nice to lay on. Especially my older GSD. My medium pad goes between the house crate for my 'maligator' and my car crate. I got tired of that so I ordered one that will fit my medium house kennel crate (which actually is a small tuff crate pad). NOTE: measure your crate before ordering. I didn't before I ordered the large and medium, thinking that would be equivalent to the crate size. They are not. But, never fear, a larger Tuff will easily smash into a smaller crate and actually, the dogs love it. Sort of cave like. Well made product. I'm very pleased.

    Have only had the bed in his crate for a few days and he has only been in it during drives for a duration of 2 hours at a time. He is a chewer extraordinaire and so far no stuffing showing or chew areas. I believe having it tied down has certainly helped. Only recommendation is that you check the zip tie bags you send out with the beds. The ones I received were so brittle that they snapped before I could get them through the bed. Have a long weekend coming up and he will have to spend several hours traveling in his crate. We'll see how that works. So Far Love it.

    So good so far! After the first day in the crate my puppy did find the best chew spot - the tag - but no success at finding a way in. My only minor complaint is that it is a bit noisy when she adjusts in the crate at night, so my solution is to find a bigger blanket to cover it. Definitely worth the try if your dog has chewed multiple beds.
  • No more tears Review by Lindsay (Posted on 11/21/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I'm impressed with the quality of not only the crate pad, but also the company. The replacement guarantee was a big attraction for us when shopping for a crate pad. Our 1 year old lab is a bit of a chewer and we needed a rugged pad. When the first pad came, we didn't notice the reinforced corners and zip-ties until after she had been using the crate pad for a week. In which time, Daisy has torn the pad. Once we put the ties in, there were no more tears because the pad was fully stretched out. K9Ballistics were wonderful about replacing the pad and got it out to us straight away. With the new pad, tied in straight away, Daisy has been enjoying a tear-free bed for a few weeks now. A modern day record for her. Thank you K9Ballistics!

    I gave this bed 5 stars because that was the highest I could go. Its well worth 100 stars! My chocolate lab is king of destruction! He has not managed to make even a dent in this bed. After going through a dozen (easily) other beds, blankets and so on that he easily destroyed, I was at a loss. My 80 lb, 12 month old puppy whose favorite toys are 20 lb rocks out of my garden, can NOT destroy this bed! I am thrilled with this bed. And Finn has met his match!!

  • Tuff Crate Pad solved our shredding problem! Review by DonQ (Posted on 11/16/2016)
    Overall Quality
    We have a 16 month old Beagle who is still an aggressive chewer. He has been crate trained since he was a puppy. We purchased another type crate bed and needed to replace it every other month. Within the first week he began shredding it. I figured at $13.00 it wasn't so bad!
    When we put the Tuff Pad in the crate, he looked at it like, "What's this?" But laid down and got comfortable right away. We've had the pad for almost three weeks, it has not sustained ANY damage at all! He treats the pad differently, he doesn't attack it like he did the old pads.
    At the price point I figured if it lasts 3 months, we were breaking even. I am pretty sure that we will end up way ahead of the crate pad curve with the Tuff Pad!

    The zip lock tie downs were not expected and have made a big difference in the crate. I caught my dog trying to "pry" up the corner, but the ties discouraged her enough that I was able to stop her from doing any damage, so far. The zip lock ties are a one time use, so I will probably replace them when I have to remove the bed from the crate with some sort of removable wire tie downs.

  • Wouldn't buy anything else Review by Tracy A. (Posted on 11/9/2016)
    Overall Quality
    We bought this pad after our 10 mo German Shepherd shredded several other mats, and blankets without number. After a couple weeks he chewed a hole in this pad as well, nothing major because the material doesn't shred, but K9 Ballistics honored the warranty with no problems or time consuming paperwork to complete. They sent us a new pad and it's holding up great. We've discovered that as long as he has a toy to chew he'll leave the pad alone. This never worked with the other pads and blankets we tried. I honestly think that he gets no satisfaction from chewing this pad so he'll leave it alone as long as he has a toy. It's incredibly sturdy and well put together. It's also thickly padded so he's more comfortable and it doesn't bunch together when he moves around.

  • Great product, be a responsible pet owner Review by Christopher (Posted on 11/7/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Here's the deal...

    I broke down and bought the K9 Ballistics Tuff Crate Pad because I was tired of buying cheap pet beds that my black lab eventually destroyed.

    Upon receiving the pad, I immediately knew my lab didn't stand a chance against this thing. Tough, ripstop nylon and well-constructed seams gave me confidence. However, one unfortunate Friday my wife and I were out of town for a couple hours longer than expected and we came home to my labrador having torn a 6" hole in the corner of the mat. I was frustrated at myself, not my dog. I knew I was to blame.

    So I sent the pictures to K9Ballistics.com and they immediately replaced the pad no questions asked.

    As I write, I have had zero concerns with the quality the replacement product. There is a level of responsibility on the pet owner to make sure their 80-pound labrador isn't allowed to destroy the pad.

    I would highly recommend this product.

    These crate pads are great. They are strong but still offer cushioning and padding. My 8 month old puppy is a chewer and hasn't made a dent in this, but we've only been using it for a coupleweeks. Time will tell. I like the idea of the tie downs, but since our puppy is still being crate trained and not always fond of his crate, he already broke two of those. We'll replace with stronger zip ties from the hardware store.

    Haha! After reading so many reviews, I was relieved I wasn't the only person with a destructive dog. My little guy could destroy a bed in a few hours. Even purchased a "tough" version at the local pet store for about the same price. Nope, not tough enough and it lasted a day. Then I found the Tuff pad. No more replacing the dog bed!!! I'm pretty sure it is the tie-downs on the corners that really stopped the problem. He can't pull up the bed to even begin chewing. I was worried about cleaning it, but I just run the vacuum wand over it once a week to keep the pad nice and tidy. Needless to say, I'm so happy with my purchase that I just ordered a Cujo cot, too. Thanks for such a great product!

  • Pitbull tested, dog mom approved! Review by Kylie (Posted on 10/27/2016)
    Overall Quality
    We bought the Tuff Crate Pad for our Pitbull who has destroyed countless pillows, blankets, and dog beds over the years. We've always felt bad crating him because of how uncomfortable the hard plastic bottom must feel, but have no other choice sometimes. The Tuff Crate Pad is a Godsend. It's much more comfortable than I imagined it would be. It feels almost like an air mattress. Our dog has willingly chosen to lay down in his crate, over the couch, on multiple occasions since we've put the Pad in. The package came with zip ties which can be threaded through the corners of the Pad and fastened to the Crate which has kept our dog from lifting the Pad up and looking for a sweet spot to chew on (corners are his favorite). It's been 2 weeks since we got our Pad and so far it's held up, which is about 2 weeks longer than anything else ever has. I am 100% satisfied and have recommended this company to many people already.

    We have a 14 month old Belgian Malinois and he has torn through multiple crate pads. So we thought we'd give this one a try. Plus the price was average to all the other crate pads. I should have cut off the tag because within the first use of being in his crate for an hour he had pulled the tag off and created a hole. However that's as far as he got. I did utilize the 90 day guarantee and had another pad within a couple of days. This new one he hasn't chewed through at all. We would totally recommend this pad to everyone!!
  • Straps and tags are weak spots Review by Holter (Posted on 10/27/2016)
    Overall Quality
    She chewed through one of the new corner tie-down straps the first three-hour period we left her alone with the new pad. Full disclosure, we preferred the side of the mat that had the straps on it--tougher versus the velour side--so they were exposed and not tied down. But in making a specifically two-sided mat, a mat with options, K9 was creating the potential for exactly what happened. Not sure if I'll send it back yet because there are hoops to jump through--receipt, ship original back--and it'll likely jus happen again. Still like the mat, and thought the tie-down was a good idea, but not fully thought through with the two-sided mats.
    And the tags on the pads are where a smart dog starts his/her chew. My last K9 now has a hole and pulled-out stuffing where the tag was attached.

    K9 Ballistics Response: We're sorry that the pad was chewed! We do make the TUFF crate pads without the softer velvet side, so that you can have the plain TUFF material facing up while having it strapped down, and that type may work better for you. In any case, however, you do not need to ship the bed back to us if you want a replacement. All you need to do is email a photo of the damage to warranty@k9ballistics.com with your order number or name and shipping address and they will have one sent out. They can even send one without the velvet surface if you would like. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to have a working bed for your dog.
  • Best Option to Date. Review by LJMT (Posted on 10/27/2016)

    I have had the current bed for 2 weeks now. It replaces the previous Tuff Crate Pad that lasted 8 months with my aggressive chewer (and pushing stuffing back in on too many days). It's the best product of all I have tried to date. I gave him a chew-proof toy at same to try redirect his attention and, so far, that toy is missing ears and has a slash out of its hind leg but pad is yet intact so that strategy may be working. Wish his preferred toy was a less expensive distraction but at least it is not one that he will swallow and get GI obstruction.

    I was surprised!! I bought this because of the 90 day guarantee because I wouldn't normally pay over 25 for a dog crate pad.

At first she didn't seem to like it as she would not go into crate but she seems to love it now! I have a throw blanket on our sofa that is fluffy ...she chews it whenever she gets the chance so I guess it is the material on the crate pad.. She has no interest in chewing it.

    This crate pad was in my Boxer's crate for 3 days before she chewed a hole in it. I will be using the 90 day chew-proof guarantee to request a replacement cover.

On another note, my puppy had a potty accident in her crate. I washed the crate pad and it came through beautifully, even where she had already chewed the hole.

  • Changed our lives for the better! Review by Alexis (Posted on 10/23/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I would definitely recommend this bed. Our Rhodesian Ridgeback pup is 80lbs, and we ordered a medium size bed for his cage. I wish I would have ordered a large, but I measured wrong; he seems to do fine with the smaller bed though, so I didn't return. Our dog was the kind of dog who chewed up just about anything and everything we would leave padded in his cage. Sheets, towels, other beds.. You name it; we'd wasted lots of $$$$trying to assure his comfort! He'd tear them to shreds, and one time I even had to do the heimlich on him when I arrived back home because he had choked on pieces of a towel. So for a while we just resulted to leaving our sweet boy without anything to lay on in his cage because he just would tear it up. Then my mom found this company, and we bought one right away; the bed has been amazing! It's machine washable, comfortable, durable, and my doggie loves it! The only thing is I didn't receive the ties that come with the beds, but I don't see that as a reason to lower the review score; he does fine without them (even though it'd be nice to have just in case.) What really sold me on this bed was the 90 Day Guarantee; I couldn't have brought myself to spend this kind of money on a dog bed without one!

My 9 month old lab/pit mix was able to chew a hole in the pad at the grommet where the tie-downs go, but when I emailed K9 Ballistics, they replaced the pad right away, no questions, which I appreciated. After using the tie-downs so the pup can't lift up the pad to chew, it's been hole-free. I also really like that the pad is easy to clean - my pup eats in his crate (away from our cats) and he's a messy eater sometimes but any mess wipes right up with a wet paper towel.
  • Waste of Money if Your Dog is a Chewer! Review by Thomas (Posted on 10/20/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Bought this bed with high hopes that it would actually work and live up to the hype. Unfortunately, my 14-month old Lab utterly destroyed it within less than 30 minutes (if I could post my pictures here, you'd be amazed at how completely shredded it was). As for the warranty offered by K9, do be sure to read the fine print: you get 50% back only in cash. Since I paid $60 for it, which is 4x what a normal dog bed costs on Amazon -- and I only paid this amount hoping that it would work -- I still paid $30 (2x the normal amount) for nothing. I appreciate the effort by K9, but the world rewards results, not attendance. Waste of money!

Recommend for anyone who has a destructive pet.

    It is well made, and our puppy Harper shows no tendency to chew on it. I wish we knew about K9 Ballistics 20 years ago when we got our Lab mix, Dickens. He lived up to his name, and was a dickens of a dog, chewing up everything! So he was never able to have a soft bed in the crate where he had to spend his days when we were at work. Our new Lab puppy is quite content in her crate, and I am so happy she will have a softer future resting on her new K9 dog bed.

    I have been through many...let me repeat that, many dog beds. All have been destroyed by my lab. Although I wish this pad had a little bit more padding, I would have to say it's awesome. I put it down in my dog's crate, and she immediately walked in there to destroy it, but was unsuccessful. Three weeks later, it's not been torn or chewed!

    Though a senior Brittany she still likes to chew but this new bed for her crate has not been chewed! She scratches at it a lot and with this ballistic material it is noisy and not moldable or cosy like a fabric bed. But she has not ruined it at all and looks quite peaceful sleeping once she gets settled into it.

    I woke up to what I thought was surely the sound of the Crate Pad being shredded. I listened for a couple of minutes to the thumping (as my puppy stood on the pad & pulled up with his teeth) and other ominous sounds. In my head, I was already trying get to recall the return policy when I flipped on the lights - to a neat & clean kennel! No stuffing, no shreds, nothing wrong. I thought the zip ties were a little much - but I was SO wrong! K9 Ballistics knows best! The Crate Pad is definitely Bear (75lb. GSD puppy) proof. Worth EVERY dollar; I should have done this 6 months ago.

  • Best crate pad ever!! Review by CeXochitl (Posted on 10/7/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Best crate pad ever!! Our 4 year old standard Xolo has a history of tearing up crate bedding. Over the years she's gone through at least 5 different pads and an assortment of old towels and blankets. We recently relocated to a new state and the move made her even more anxious, to the point where she actually tore apart the plastic tray on the bottom of her crate. (Seriously, wish I could post a pic!) We decided to buy a metal crate bottom, but were concerned about the cold surface and how uncomfortable it would be on her hairless body, so we searched "chew proof crate pad" on Google, and K9 Ballistic's page popped up. We figured we had nothing to lose and were about 80% sure our dog would tear it up anyway, but hey, it has a 90 day guarantee, so why not? We figured if she didn't tear it up within the first week, hopefully she'd get tired of trying. 4 weeks have passed and not a single tear or rip, although she definitely tried the first few days! Love this product!

    Great materials and construction, soft enough for young large breed dog. He destroyed and ate his previous beds - this one seems to be fine. I removed the tag before placing the bed in his crate, thinking that would be too much temptation. The color is great- I appreciate the attention to that detail. I especially appreciate the tennis ball present inside the box!! He did immediately remove the fuzz from the tennis ball and try to swallow it--but it was fun while it lasted!!! What are you going to do with a mouthy chewer pup! Get them one of these beds.

  • Good Pad But NOT Chew Proof Review by BigDog136 (Posted on 10/3/2016)
    Overall Quality
    The overall quality of the product is really good. It is well constructed and the material is quality as is the stitching. The customer service is also wonderful. However, as far as "Chew Proof" NOT so much. With my Great Pyrenees 2 month old puppy the poor crate pad bit the dust in less than 12 hours. The German Shepherd's last several weeks and then as soon as the replacement came for the first one and I opened the box, I was pleasantly surprised to find two. Nonetheless, they are not the same and do not have the hold down bars but we are not putting them into their crates yet. We will take customer services advice and spray them with Bitter Apple and see how that works. Somewhere I read Lifetime Warranty and that changed to 90 Days...but if you don't have a puppy or one that chews, this is great. They do wash well.

    Overall Quality
    These are great pads, but certainly not chew proof. One of my Gordon Setter girls chews the daylights out of these pads. The rest of my GS crew (6) aren't really chewers and so they leave these alone. My chewer girl only gets the Cujo Cot (which she hasn't even put a scratch on). I just bought 2 more for my new puppies and they haven't done any damage to them yet. Highly recommended for the moderate chewer, but if you have a serious chewer like I do be prepared to make an early exchange (which I did) or just consider the Cujo Cots.

    This is the second Tuff Crate Pad we've purchased through K9. The first one we bought for our girl after she chewed through two that we bought at our local pet store. When our boy needed one, we knew that we'd order it through K9. Not only is the quality of their products great, their customer service is AWESOME-a trait hard to find in retailers these days. We had an issue with a previous product (a blanket that our dogs just didn't like) and they replaced the blanket with no questioned asked. I will continue to purchase through K9 and always recommend them to my dog friends.

    Thanks K9 for quality products and EXCELLENT customer service. We are definitely loyal customers.

  • Puppy chewed it in 1 day Review by Kristen (Posted on 9/21/2016)
    Overall Quality
    My puppy chewed holes in this within 5 minutes of unpacking it. I will say the holes are smaller than with previous beds so he removes less stuffing, but still can't let him have it...he was digesting material & stuffing after having it in his crate a day.

    K9 Ballistics Response: We're sorry to hear that the pad didn't last! If you have a destructive crate chewer and are concerned about him eating the bed stuffing we recommend considering upgrading to the Cujo Cot Raised Aluminum Bed. The cot can fit inside most standard wire crates, and it is designed to hold up to even the heaviest of chewers. Since it does not have any stuffing, even if your dog does find a way to puncture the material, there's nothing fluffy for him to eat. If you're interested in this option, simply contact us at warranty@k9ballistics.com.
  • Works great so far Review by Chris (Posted on 9/20/2016)

    I have a 18 month old 85lb German Shepherd who would decide to tear his Kong bed up anytime he was upset we put him in his crate. When we first received his new bed he took a few minutes scratching at it with no results and a month later it seems to be holding up quite well. It also does not seem to trap the odor like his last bed so the house smells a lot better as well. I don’t mind paying a premium for something as long as I get what I pay for and so far this is worth the little extra. I will be recommending this to anyone I know who has to deal with buying new crate pads every few months.

    I love this crate pad, although it still has not deterred my 12 month old golden retriever mix from chewing holes in it. The first day in the crate with it she chewed a hole and removed some stuffing. After about 10 days there are about 5 holes around the edges, however it remains largely intact which is no small feat. Anything else that has been in her crate for more than a day ends up shredded. I would definitely recommend this product, even though our puppy managed to chew through in spots.

    Just wanted to let you know I recently purchased two dog crate beds from you, and they are fantastic. The day after they arrived I left on on long trip to Eastern Oregon. My dog (a Begian Tervuren) normally hates travel, but I credit your pad for somehow making her the most calm she has ever been. I put the second pad on the floor in the main room of my cabin along the Columbia River….where my dog has literally consumed pads of various manufacture, and – again – she loves this pad and has not destroyed it (I once tried an expensive pad billed as “Indestructible Kevlar”….she ripped that open and turned it inside out the first night).

But they were also quick to offer us solutions, advise, and options for near destruction proof bedding for the beagle. The K9 is not indestructible (thus the warranty) but they are good people and stand with their product and I am a very pleased customer. We are spending more time training him with the new bed.

    Overall Quality
    These beds and covers are amazing and the company stands behind them. Even though they tell you there are some dogs that will chew through anything and your dog might be one of them, they are willing to replace any that are damaged. What other company does this?
    I ordered a single crate pad for my 6-month old border collie/ pit bull puppy, Mica. He bit it and shook it but soon gave up in favor of a more destructible object (toy). I was so impressed I ordered 3 more covers for larger beds and 2 more crate pads and an orthopedic velvet tuff bed (see separate review). After a couple of months Mica has managed to chew holes in one of the pads and one of the covers. I sent pictures to K9 Ballistics customer service and explained how many beds and covers I had ordered and which ones were chewed. They wrote back with a link to the replacement order, and lo and behold, they are replacing every product I ordered, even the ones he didn't chew! I had finally taken up all the beds since I knew Mica would eventually damage them all. Even though I now know he can chew through the material, I will give him back his chewed beds with the new covers because even if (when) he chews through the cover he will still not be damaging the bed underneath. Thank goodness he doesn't have to lie on the bare hardwood floors any more!

    I ordered this pad with high hopes because I hate leaving my babies without something soft to lay on. It seems to be made of high quality material. It took my dog about a month to make a whole in the bed (which is 29 days longer then any other bed has survived). Even though she was able to chew through it, the company honored their guarantee and quickly sent me another bed.
  • Lasted three hours before it was chewed to shreds Review by Austin (Posted on 7/25/2016)
    Overall Quality
    We ordered this bed for out one year old Weimaraner because he chews through everything put in front of him. We had really high hopes for this bed because it was supposed to be a tough bed and he isn't a puppy anymore (therefore the needle teeth stage is over) so I figured it would be perfect for him. NOPE! We didn't even have the bed for THREE HOURS before he chewed five fist sized holes into it and had stuffing all over the house. Needless to say we were extremely disappointed with this product. The positives I will say for this product are as follows: the dimensions are spot on, the material is very soft, and the color is nice.
  • A+++++ Product, very highly recommend Review by Richard (Posted on 7/25/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I ordered this crate pad in hopes that it would withstand the chewing of my bluetick coonhound. I honestly figured I would be taking a picture (like normal) after the first day of a chewed up bed. Much to my surprise this one has lasted almost an entire week thus far with no chewing. This dog has chewed everything from towels, blankets, other crate pads, to bed frames, door frames etc. To say that this product is amazing is an understatement. I would recommend this to any heavy chewer dog owner.

    Our pup had chewed holes in his other beds while being in his crate during the day, but this bed has not suffered any damage. We wanted him to have something of a little comfort within his crate, but he would always chew a hole in it so after sewing attempts to reuse them we decided to buy the K9 ballistics crate bed. It's perfect for him and it's cool!
  • Not even worth rating Review by danielle (Posted on 7/20/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Do not even waste your time. The so called "guarantee" is a joke...
    I have a 9 month old lab that doesn't chew anything but beds... I decided after reading every review that I would give the TUFF crate pad a shot. After all, everyone raved about it...
    I received the first crate pad and was excited to put her to bed to try it out. Put my pup in the crate at 10pm... by 6am, there were two holes chewed in the pad and the inside stuffing EVERYWHERE....
    So I called the warranty department and the following was their so called "guarantee"... I could choose one of the three.
    1. get a replacement of the product that she tore up ( sure, so she can chew up another one)
    2. 50% money back ( awesome guarantee there )
    3. 50% off a cujo cot which are easily at least twice as much as the crate pad so you end up paying double any ways.
    Well, I decided not to waste anymore money so I opted to have another one sent to me... what do I have to lose right????
    Second pad arrived... 5:00pm took it off the porch and opened the box 7:00pm placed new pad and pup in the crate so I could go to dinner ....10:15pm... get home... PAD DESTROYED!!!
    My pup does not have anxiety or separation issues or anything.. she just likes to chew... but for her to chew through this crate pad in a matter of a few hours is hardly what I would call a good product, and a guaranteed one at that....
    Doesn't even deserve one star......

    I have 2 great danes. Both have destroyed everything in the crates, to the point they were laying on the bottom plastic piece. I hesitantly ordered 2 of these beds. So far so good. Along with the pads in the bottom, they also have blankets. My hope is the blankets get ripped and not my new beds. My largest dane has a hygroma on his elbow. This seems to also be helping. The crate doors stay open so they do lounge in them at different times.

    I now have two of these. Although he has tried numerous times, my puppy (now nearly 5 months old) has not been able to put a hole in either one.

  • Pleasantly Surprised Review by Eileen M. (Posted on 7/18/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I was sure that our new dog would have made mince meat of this crate pad since she's already gone through 3 other pads purchased at local pet stores. She attacked the new pad right away but gave up rather quickly and hasn't made another attempt to chew it. She is crated several times during the day, the longest period of time being about 4 hours so she's had plenty of time to try. Don't know why she's decided that this pad is any different from the other pads she's chewed up unless there's something about the pad cover or inside that's making a difference. So glad that I took a chance. Recommend highly!
  • Great Tuff Crate Pads Review by Toni (Posted on 7/18/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I am a satisfied customer, having ordered 2 pads. Homer, our Bloodhound did, indeed, chew a silver dollar-sized hole in his pad when crated with it on his first day. I was disappointed, but no bed can be indestructible and he is a new,nervous shelter- acquired member of our family and I was not surprised. One pad is used to sleep on outside of the crate, with no problem. Having chewed the hole in his "crated" pad, he is no longer using any pad in the crate until he stops chewing socks, etc. K9 Ballistics, dutifully and gladly, sent a new pad right away, when requested. Homer demolished the bed he used before his K9 Ballistics pad. K9 Ballistic's material is more durable than any other beds I have seen. I highly recommend their product and am very pleased with their very fair and honest guarantee.

    This product is performing admirably. It fit perfectly into the crate that i ordered, and I brought the pup back from Chicago in the crate with your bed. That Great Dane puppy did great! He is already mostly crate trained and loves the bed, and we have no problem getting him to stay in the crate. He has scratched on it and tried to chew on it, but eventually has just settled into resting and sleeping on it.

    We will be buying a much larger version of your product when he gets bigger, which is inevitable.

    I have a lab. This Tuff crate pad lasted all of 90 minutes. This company refused to give me a refund. They advertise ALL over their website 90 day guarantee. In FINE PRINT their guarantee simply means that when it gets torn up they will send you a new bed; not a refund. If you should request a refund, they will only give a 50% refund. I WOULD not recommend this bed or company to others. They are misleading!

    Overall Quality
    I have a 55 lb chocolate lab. The first one of these pads I got for him, he chewed through the tag...I marked it down as my own fault for not taking it off. Ordered a replacement. Second one comes, and he's chewed a hole through it. K9 ballistics won't replace it. False advertising and deceptive practices.

    Save your money and don't waste it on this non-reliable product that is in fact not indestructible.

    K9 Ballistics Response: Kenneth, we're sorry to hear that your experience has been less than satisfactory. We haven't been able to locate an order for you in our system to research the matter, but if you contact us with the order details (shipping name or address) we should be able to pull up your order and assist you further. Remember that every order for a TUFF series item is eligible for a one-time replacement or 50% refund if damaged within the first 90 days of purchase, so as long as you have not already claimed the warranty you are eligible for one of those options. Please also bear in mind that the TUFF crate pad has a durability of 4 out of 5 and is meant for light or moderate chewers; if your lab is a heavier or persistent crate chewer, a Cujo Cot Raised Aluminum Bed may work better in the crate for him.
  • BEST PRODUCT EVER Review by Jamie (Posted on 7/13/2016)

    Ask my family because I say it constantly... this is the best money I have ever spent. And this is my favorite purchase by far. My 6yo english bulldog has never been aggressive or mindlessly chewed on objects, but he has managed to rip apart every bed we ever gave him. I finally bought him the Tuff Crate Pad to act as his bed, and it has been a whole new world. I swear he never leaves this thing! It's still in tact — not a hole or rip in sight. Milo hasn't tried chewing it, but you can feel how durable the pad is. He always seems incredibly comfortable and content on it. LOVE this product x10. I recommend this to everyone. I can't get over how much my dog and I love this. Thanks!

    We got our first TUFF crate pad about 2 months ago and our dog was able to make a small hole in it and then proceeded to pull most of the stuffing out. I thought well goodness... what the heck now. But I let the company know and they were happy to send out another one free of charge. It arrived probably within the week and he hasn't chewed on it since. He loves it because it doesn't get too hot at night. Great product. We will more than likely buy more products down the road.

    My dog loves to rip things, especially fluffy things, so I thought I'd invest in something and hope it lasted. The 90 day guarantee definitely gave me some peace in the decision. Got it about a little over a week later, and has survived just fine since then. Then came the shedding.. but turns out it's really easy to clean. It's about a half- inch to an inch smaller than I expected, but I would still recommend it.

  • This is the best dog bed ever Review by Angela (Posted on 7/7/2016)
    Overall Quality
    This is the best dog bed ever! I highly recommend this bed if your dog has chewed through numerous beds and you are ready to give up, but you can't stand the thought of your precious boy laying on a hard surface. My Guinness had chewed up 4 or 5 beds, and I even tried blankets, nothing seemed to work. After reading some of these reviews I thought I would give one of these K9 Ballistic beds a try. This bed is exactly what it claims to be, still in tact, 100%! I have washed the bed and it came out looking like brand new. I am completely satisfied now, so I have ordered another bed for my other dog Finnigan, even though he's not a chewer. The beds look nice and the red looks great with the black kennel. They wash up great and are very reasonable priced! Highly Recommended!

    My yellow lab puppy and I love our TUFF Crate Pad. This is the only item that my puppy has not been able to completely un-stuff and destroy. She did chew a small corner of the pad, but I used purple duct tape to tape the corners and put a blanket over the pad, left chew toys in the crate to discourage her chewing. I might also use no-bite spray if it becomes a problem, but the tape is helping! It's so comfy that sometimes I'll lay on it with her and she loves it. I have washed it in the washing machine and it cleaned up great! When I originally ordered the wrong size, the K-9 customer service team went above and beyond to help me get a replacement and it fits perfectly. A size medium worked for my size Large crate. Make sure to check measurements of your crates! I have already recommended this product to one my friends and I will definitely order from them again. Thank you for a great product, quick delivery, and wonderful customer service.

    Everette loves his new bed and has tried very hard to destroy it just for the sheer joy of it. We have only had it 8 days but so far he has not been able to harm it. Fingers crossed. It is far better than the best we were able to purchase locally and the price was quite reasonable. We keep it in his kennel where he goes when we are not home or at night and he is not allowed to take it out as when he takes it out he grabs it in his mouth and pulls and tugs and shakes and tries every whichaway to tear it apart. Despite a few opportunities to do this, pad is still fully intact. Everette is quite large - a coon hound mix possibly with a German Shepherd - quite handsome and what big teeth he has!

    I ordered the Tuff crate pad for my 6-month old border collie-pit bull mix, who has destroyed every bed and toy we've given him. He had little interest in chewing the bed at first. He would bite it but give up quickly. After about a week he managed to make 2 small holes on one side, but the holes did not tear out further, thanks to the Rip-stop feature! He has since tried his best several times to destroy the bed by biting and shaking it vigorously, and has not been able to make any more holes. I then ordered a large bed cover for a Kong bed and he has not even tried to tear it up. The cover is too long for the Kong bed, so I've folded over the edges and tucked underneath the bed and so far he has not bothered the edges. Paws crossed!

  • Awesome Bed Review by Polly J. (Posted on 6/22/2016)
    Overall Quality
    We purchased two of these Tuff Crate pads in February for our two dogs, a Pointer and GSD. I have waited so long to write a review because it is usually at the 2-3 month mark when one or both dogs destroy their beds. The pointer has separation anxiety and the shepherd just loves to chew up everything. It has been 4 months and the ultimate test was last week when we went on vacation. They stayed at the kennel and normally are not allowed a bed because they destroy them within a few hours. I am pleased to say the beds are intact, only one bed has a chew spot that is super tiny and you can barely see it. These are by far the best beds for aggressive chewers. We ordered the Small because we use them on the cots they sleep on at home and that was the size of the old pads. They are a bit smaller than advertised, about 1-2 inches shorter, but I believe this is because of the stuffing, if you flatten them out the bed can be stretched to the advertised size, maybe they are measured before stuffing? Either way the size works out perfectly for our dogs because they fit nicely in the cots and are easy to travel with. Delivery was very fast. We are super happy with K9 Ballistics and recommend them highly.

    My puppy has managed to chew the edge of the seam on two of these but she's a big chewer. I have to say the customer service here is excellent. I received a response to my email the same day and received a replacement at no charge within 3 days. Maybe will try again when she gets older...

    My 9 month old rescue likes to chew, so when I came across these crate pads I was extremely hopeful that I would be one of the lucky ones. It took my dog exactly 5 minutes or less to put a hole in it. Hopefully when I send in the picture of the hole they will send me another one.
  • Very durable and good quality materials Review by Adam (Posted on 6/16/2016)
    Overall Quality
    This bed is holding up great. Already washed it once and our pup has been using it for almost a month and still good as new. It feels like it will last a very long time. I believe the key for us has been teaching him that the kennel is not for playing or digging or thrashing about in. We take him out and shut it if he does and only let him back in when he's calm. We also treat him every time he goes in. So far that has worked for us and his bed is still brand new with no chews or tears. I love the quality of the fabric and double-stitch threading and hidden seams. Worth every penny.

    Our lab has torn every bed that we've purchased for her to shreds. She's had this crate pad for a couple of weeks now, and she hasn't been able to damage it!!! We are very happy with it and will likely buy the larger bed now knowing that she won't be able to tear it apart.

    We received our pad on time, and put it in the crate immediately. It took a bit for Bart to get used to the new smell, but after a couple snacks he went right in. Bart's a lab / border collie mix and he loves a good chew! So far the TUFF PAD has held up very well...it usually takes him about 15 minutes to tear up whatever it is he is "playing" with but no success with the new pad! We would definitely buy this pad again...but I'm to expecting to need another for a long time!
  • So far, Great for our little dogs, not so much for our Pit Review by Larry (Posted on 6/16/2016)

    The beds have held up great with our 2 wiener dogs and they love them. Our 50lb Pit Bull chewed three holes on the edges within 48 hrs. A replacement was sent, but we haven't used the replacement cover yet. She hasn't chewed any new holes since the first week. Its been a couple of months now and they are holding together.

    I am very pleased with the product. It has lasted longer than anything we have tried.

    My Black Lab Puppy (9 months old) is a big chewer! She has destroyed any blanket or bed we have put in her crate. I was so excited to hear about this bed! I thought we found our solution.

  • Good Crate Pad, Really Good Customer Service Review by Angela (Posted on 6/13/2016)

    As much as I had hoped this would be the answer to my problem, I knew that was too good to be true with my anxious dog. It did last significantly longer than previous dog beds (several days) and was not completely shredded, but she managed to make a hole and pull the stuffing out. I gave 4 stars because it is the best product I have found so far, but can't give 5 because it's not technically "chew- proof". Costumer service is great and replacement bed shipped very quickly!

    The TUFF crate pad is very well made, and shipment was very fast and efficient. Unfortunately, within 48 hours of placing the pad in my 10 month old puppy's crate, she managed to chew a sizeable hole in it. I will say that it lasted longer than other pads I've tried - the previous record was 24 hours. I have just contacted the company via email regarding the "guarantee" and I am sure I will hear back from them promptly. So overall, a well made product and what I expect to be great customer service. But the pad is not chew-proof for any period of time.

    After multiple beds we ordered ordered the Ballistic Bed hoping that our 1 year old bed destroyer would finally meet her match. Unfortunately, our dog chewed through the bed in a couple days. However, Ballistic's customer service is great and they have shipped a new replacement bed. We plan to hang on to the new bed for a few months before we give our dog another try. The bed is very well made and many dogs probably wouldn't be able to chew through the material. I have recommended the bed to other dog owners.

  • Great company. Good bed. Review by Patsy (Posted on 6/8/2016)

    The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because my Great Dane puppy is able to chew through the covering. However, it takes her a substantially much longer time to even do a little damage to her bed from K9 Ballistics compared to the other beds we purchased for her.

    I would give the company 5 plus stars for customer service. The website was easy to use, order processing was fast, delivery tracking was available, follow-up on their service was surprising, and fulfillment of the warrantee was unquestioned and timely. This is the best company I have dealt with in a long time. I will purchase K9 Ballistic beds in the future.

When we got our second dobie we bought her a crate pad (with fingers crossed) and decided that the older one had most likely grown out of the chewing phase so we got her one as well...she ended up chewing both of them. I have since had these two pads for almost a month and she hasn't even tried chewing it. I also purchased the crate covers and they look great with the pads...they also prevent my younger one from ripping off the cover and chewing it. Great products

  • Disappointed Review by Monica (Posted on 6/6/2016)
    Overall Quality
    The crate pad(s) that we had were great at first. It must be said that we have a puppy who is has now gone through a Kong crate pad and two Tuff pads. She does not chew on anything other than her toys normally so I am unsure why she is choosing to chew on the pads. The first crate pad lasted about 2 weeks, she put a hole in and I immediately chose to file a claim to get a replacement.

    I was happy with the process and surprised on the quick turn around of the replacement pad. Unfortunately, this pad lasted only 1 week. I guess I put too much stock in the fact that it is being advertised as chew proof when clearly it can be chewed on and punctured.

    I have a 12 month old German Shepherd/Husky mix who is a VERY tough chewer. When I got it in the mail, he was very excited, but he did try to chew at it, as if it were a toy. I corrected him and didn't seem to have any other issues. Two days later, I woke up and saw that he had chewed a perfect circular hole towards the center of the mat, not on the corner. I emailed the company and they were extremely quick to reply and send me a new mat free of charge.They were very helpful and recommended different ways to get my pup to not bite at the mat. I'm giving this crate pad 4 stars due to it not being ideal for most tough chewers and how quickly my dog chewed through it. Other than that, I really recommend it for light to moderate chewers or to powerful chewers who can be controlled!

    I was very impressed with product and my Border Collie seemed to like it. However on her second nite with it in her crate she managed a 1/2 inch tear that led to a stuffing blizzard. Called customer service and was immediatey sent a new one. This time i put it on floor and on couch for a few days so she could get used to it...that worked and now she sleeps on it and loves it. It will NOT tear under normal to even severe conditions, she is hardcore and went at it with a determination bordering (see what i did there) on obsessive.I had seen this in the daytime and underestimated her but like I said after a few days acclimation, she stopped going at it so hard, now the occasional chomp or bored knawing does no damage and she gets bored and stops. Highly reccomened product, great company. Thanks to all!

    I chose your product for obvious reasons a 40 lb adult dog that nibbles her bedding. With advertised claims of chew resistance I couldn't wait for the product to arrive. My crate pad lasted 3 days before my pet chewed two of the corners completely open. I decided against a replacement because I felt any subsequent pads would suffer a similar fate. I was disappointed to learn that I would only be refunded half of my purchase price! Yes as I reviewed the fine print it states that so I will take my medicine on that and remember to never do business with this company again. I have never purchased a product online where you would get less than your purchase price back if not satisfied. What a rip off!

I felt confident leaving Gunner with it, and it held up for about a week before Gunner was able to tear a tiny hole in it.

    I have two very loving and gentle Basinji's , until I need to crate them. They have destroyed every type of bedding and pad I have ever tried over several years. That was until now. I happened by luck to find K9 Ballistices online and read the reviews and decided to give the Tuff Crate Pad a try. I ordered 2 and have been so very pleased. The quality is great, both pads are still in one piece and the dogs have given up on trying to chew,claw and destroy the pads. Wish I had found these years ago, would have save a lot of money and stress on me and the dogs. High quality product at a very reasonable cost. Very prompt delivery also, with an email to check if I was satisfied with my purchase.

    My dog made a small hole in the pad about 3 days after I got it. But he hasn't made it worse so I'm waiting to see what happens. The first pad I got, he tore up after about 6 months but it had food on it so I think he was just gnawing at that site and tore it and then tore the entire pad. I'm hoping he doesn't do that this time.

  • excellent customer service Review by Erika (Posted on 5/31/2016)
    Overall Quality
    My 1-yr old lab has been a chewer since day 1, and we went through many beds in his 'house' before I came across this brand. I have been very impressed with the durability and quality... he tried to chew it a little at first and gave up after a few days, when he realized there were easier, more fun things to chew in his house than his bed. After 2 1/2 months he did start to chew it again (there were some stressors in the house) and managed to make a small hole, but K9 Ballistics replaced the bed at no cost (it even arrived at my house only a few days after making the request). The 2nd crate pad has stood up very nicely, and I don't forsee him starting to chew it.

    As to the noisiness issue (some reviews have complained that the bed makes too much noise as the animal moves around), I haven't had that problem at all. It is made with a thicker, less stretchy or supple material so it does make shifting noises, but it's nothing more than your run-of-the-mill patio chair pad would make when you shift around on that.

    Excellent product, I will definitely buy again if I ever need to (which hopefully I won't!).

    My very fussy tortiseshell tabby rescue cat,Beamer,has turned her nose up at no fewer than four beds. Each bed has been given away to other cat owners.

I accidentally saw the small version of your dog bed and in desperation I bought it. I swapped out the gig bag with the new I'm bed tonight, not very hopefully. To my surprise,she loves it. She is a very gentle and nondestructive cat so I think this will last the rest of her life. Thank you, K9ballistics! This will get a well deserved 5 star rating on Amazon!
  • Caution for Large Tuff Pad Buyers Review by Ram (Posted on 5/27/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I would have given this the full 5 star rating, if it were not for the fact that I had to learn first hand;
    If you put the large or extra large crate pad through the wash, it will tear up your washing machine and/or the pad itself.

    Even though your product says machine washable, that only is fact for the smaller beds; or if you have an industrial size washer for the larger beds.

    I had to buy the extra large for my Great Dane, he can't chew it up; which is good; but now I am having to order a new pad because it got torn up through the wash.

    Side note: it also broke my washer.
    So I do state to use your washing machine with caution on the larger crate pads. It can end up destroying the tuff pad and even your washing machine itself.

    Other than this small issue; the pad lasted much longer than my previous choices for my big guy.

    I'm not totally convinced that the same thing will not happen again. The original destruction occurred in 1 1/2 months and previous cushions, not yours, lasted from 1 day to very few days. Hopefully, she will give up on this one and it will last much longer than the original cushion. I'm satisfied that the cushion is a really good cushion and we will have to try some enhancements to extend the life.

    Overall Quality
    Worlds most durable dog bed?! Yeah right 12 week old shepherd had corner ripped out in 2 days time! They are replacing but who wants a replacement for something that only lasted two days?!

    K9 Ballistics Response: If you have a heavier chewer or a destructive puppy, the only bed we recommend is our Cujo Cot, which was specifically designed to withstand even the worst chewers. These TUFF crate pads are durable but their thinness and flexibility makes it possible for persistent or determined chewers to do damage, especially around the edges and corners where it is easiest for the dog to pinch the fabric between its teeth. These pads are best for light or occasional chewers.
  • Another great K9 B product Review by Kirsten (Posted on 5/24/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I was already a big fan of the two Original Tuff beds I previously purchased for my two older dogs. They clean up so easily and, despite his best efforts, our third dog - Boomer, a one year-old aggressive chewer - has stopped even trying to chew them any more. Boomer goes into his crate for naps and to sleep at night and after he destroyed his second crate pad, I ordered the Tuff Crate Pad. I think he associated the fabric of it at first with the frustration he had in trying to chew the Tuff beds. He stood outside his crate looking at and sniffing the pad - and starting growling and barking at it! By night 2 though he sort of resigned himself to it and he hasn't had a problem with it since and the pad is still intact.

    We have a 6 months old retriever mix who should be a tester for all dog chew toys. Whenever he is bored, tired, he goes into destructive mode. He has not been able to chew through this pad. I am very happy with this purchase and would definitely buy in another color.

    We made it over a week with her showing no interest in chewing it up. Two nights ago she chewed through the corner.

Waiting on information to return it since I had thrown away my paperwork thinking we were good to go.

    Either it's "chew proof" or it's not. It's not. And I have a small, well behaved dog. Except when it comes to this crate pad.

    Our 6 year old beagle is a chewer when she is not with her humans. Nothing we had found could stand up to a night with Taffy in her crate.

    And then I found this - and it is fantastic. It has been close to a week and there is no sign of chewing so far. She actually sleeps through the night now and last night she actually walked into her crate and sat down on her bed - something that has never had since we adopted her! She has hated her crate and refused to enter it! It seems that it is now OK with the new pad! Thank you so much!

  • Extraordinary Customer Service Review by Darden (Posted on 5/20/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Our 7 month old German Shepherd puppy is an" active chewer." The K9 Ballistics company was recommended to us by a local independent pet supply store. We were pleased that the TUFF Crate Pad that we ordered lasted an entire month before our puppy was able to chew holes in 2 of the corners, but unlike other crate pads we had tried, he did not turn the pad into confetti! The damaged pad has held up well since, easily taking almost daily vacuuming and occasional washing & drying in my home machines. We sent pictures of the damaged pad and our pup to K9 Ballistics and they quickly honored their guarantee. We opted to have a replacement pad sent, which we will use after he has "out grown"this puppy chewing phase. Many thanks to K9 Ballistics for their extraordinary customer service. We highly recommend the TUFF Crate Pad.

    I am impressed with the quality of the material used. I've looked at a lot of pads and this is by far the sturdiest. My mini bull terrier has not tried chewing it so far. It's black and sits nicely in the bottom of his crate so the pad is not something that tempts him so far. I had a Kong pad in there at one time and he shredded it after 3 days. This pad is much better constructed.

    I have a 7 month old Doberman Pinscher male who must be the post child for destroying "indestructible" crate pads.

Amazingly, he has damaged the bed since its arrival one week ago.

    My 2 year old lab mix eats everything. He had intestinal surgery at 7 months for a "party in his small intestine" per the vet. He had another surgery at a year and a half and a near miss after that. He's had to sleep in a bare crate because he eats everything. Finally, he has met his match!!! We've had it for three weeks, longer than any other bed or mat, and he has not been able to ruin it yet! We are cautiously optimistic but have learned not too get too excited until the fat dog barfs, because that is usually how we know that he has eaten a lot of somethings. I will be happy to give an update later on.
  • Tuff Crate Pad Review by LMN (Posted on 5/16/2016)
    Overall Quality
    So far so good! Our year old Ridgy loves to chew! Everything else we put in his crate gets shredded, toys, spa mats, bath rugs, towels and blankets!

    After reading the reviews we decided to order the crate pad. When the new pad arrived we put it on the floor and both of our dogs tried to lay on it. Of course the older one won!

    We have been using the new crate pad every day during work hours for the last few weeks and it's still in tact. We decided to put a towel in the crate along with the crate pad and he has been happy to chew on that instead, and actually lay on the pad. We did take into consideration other reviews and cut the tag off before the bed even went into the crate.

    So far the product has held up. Even the other day when I got home and he had wadded it up underneath himself and you could tell he had tried to chew on it because it was all wet. It hit the wash and was easy to clean. Fit in the wash with the half shredded towel.

    We are hopeful this will last. Teething stage is almost over!

    My 6 month old Corgi chewed a hole in the crate liner pad within 5 minutes. Do not recommend for power chewers. This was my last resort. Looks like she'll just have to lie in the crate on the bare plastic with no padding and wait for this phase to pass. Disappointed the K9 didn't work!

    K9 Ballistics Response: The TUFF crate pad is best for moderate chewers. For heavy or "power" chewers, please consider our Cujo Cot Raised Aluminum Bed, which is our most durable crate bed. It makes an excellent alternative to the plastic bottom of a crate!

    My 7 month old boarder collie pup chewed a massive hole through the first pad in under an hour. The second pad came and I rubbed cayenne pepper over the whole pad but within 10 minutes of being in the crate my puppy had another hole started in the new pad.

    K9 Ballistics Response: It sounds as though you may have a persistent chewer, and if that's the case, you'll likely have better luck with a Cujo Cot Raised Aluminum Bed, which is our most durable crate bed. The TUFF crate pad is best for more moderate and occasional chewers.
  • An excellent consumer experience Review by Barbara (Posted on 5/13/2016)

    Having read many of the reviews and thoroughly reading the website, I took the leap and ordered a TUFF crate pad. From this reading, I knew the pad didn't stand up to every dog and I knew the company promised to make me whole if the pad wasn't.

    My dog happily slept on the pad for the first six days. On the seventh I returned home from work and discovered she had chewed through one corner of the pad.

    Quickly I received a replacement, having sent a picture of the damage. The exchange was friendly, helpful, and respectful. This business is truly a professional outfit.
  • Ha! Dogs aren't sure Review by Rosietomato (Posted on 5/13/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I bought two beds, large and medium. They actually didn't fit into my crates but then my dogs don't generally sleep in their crates. It was interesting in that they didn't immediately gravitate to laying on their beds. Sometimes they did, sometimes they didn't. My dogs aren't chewers so that wasn't an issue. All my dogs have hair that retains a lot of dirt so I really like the fact that these beds don't hold dirt. Maybe because we are approaching summer they would rather lay on the cool tile than the beds. Will know later. Overall, I'm very happy with the quality of construction. These are really sturdy beds.

    Overall Quality
    Generous sizing, indestructible construction, and excellent customer service - what more could anyone ask for?! I have two very enthusiastic chewers, shredders, and all-around destructive force canines. Every other bedding item, even extremely expensive ones, have never matched the cyclone force of their destructive determination...until I decided to give it one more go and purchase the K-9 Ballistics product. These pads literally took a licking, a chewing, lots of digging and pulling and flipping - they were under it, on top of it, shaking it and scrunching it but nothing worked. Finally they admitted defeat and fell asleep. Not that they haven't tried again, but the K-9 TUFF Crate Pad has handled everything they could dish out and just keeps going. Which is not only the company's promise, it's the customer's reality, and THAT is what makes these totally AWESOME!! IF these ever need replaced, it'll only be because I want a different color! Thank you K-9 - you totally saved my sanity AND my pocketbook!

    my 1 year old beagle is a voracious chewer. She went through several crate pads and all of our blankets before I bought this one.

I'm buying a new one and a blanket to replace it.
  • Durability questionable Review by Corey (Posted on 5/6/2016)
    Overall Quality
    We purchased this bed with the thought that it would be harder for our 8 month old pit to destroy however we were quite wrong. It took him only 2 days to put 3 reasonably sized holes in the pad. We contacted K9 and they have sent out a replacement cover and were very hasty with the response so +1 for that. I would say if your dog can destroy the toughest kong toy in a couple days like mine can then no bed is safe. We are going to only use the pad during overnight crate use so it is not in his crate during the day when he is most likely going to destroy it. Overall I am happy with the quality of the pad and the customer service from K9 is fantastic. Just don't get this bed with the thoughts that your dog will not destroy it. Where there is a will there is a way.
  • Great product and service Review by M P McCormick (Posted on 5/6/2016)

    We received our pads in the fall of 2015 and due to the age and breed of our hunting dogs, they were able to chew threw them fairly quickly. After contacting K-9 I was assured that I could exercise the one time warranty on my order, which I did in April of 2016. They were very prompt with response and sending the replacement pads to us.

    As they have stated, dogs chew, and age and breed are a factor. In no way were the pads not what was promised. I would recommend them to any dog owner and especially those with crate trained animals. Hunting dogs love their space and the pads make them comfortable and very easy to keep clean. Thank you K-9 for a job well done.

These products have been tested for years in our friends' home and they stand behind K9 Ballistics products 100%. I will continue to spread the word about the great products and service offered through K9 Ballistics. In another year or so, when our little guy grows out of the chewing stage we will be back to these guys for additional products.

I recently came home to find stuffing on the floor and a hole in the pad. :-( Thankfully it is within the warranty period so I am requesting a replacement.

    We bought this pad for the extra large crate we use for a new, old hound we rescued. My ONLY complaint was that it took so long to arrive (I admit, were are very spoiled by Amazon). By the time the pad arrived, the hound was only using the crate to be fed in. No matter, we put the pad on the floor & there is a steady rotation of dogs using it, from Chihuahuas to an over sized GSD. The material sheds dirt & hair easily (the pad is black & stays clean). We will be ordering more.

    My Roxy (Boxer mix) chews anything and everything. Beds, toys, shoes, a car seat-belt, ... you get the idea. She destroyed all beds, pads, towels, I put in her crate. She doesn't chew if she's crated with her American Bulldog brother, but the girl just doesn't like to be alone. This is the FIRST and ONLY bed to survive in her crate and it's still going strong 2 months later. That may not seem long to you, but it's a lifetime to us. This pad seems like it will last for many months/years to come. I was a skeptic when I ordered it, but I'm now a believer. Just buy it. You won't regret it.

    I have a chewer. She put a hole in one corner the first day and another corner the second day. When I say hole I mean big enough to pass a golf ball though it. This was about two weeks ago. Since then, no damage. It's a tough pad. She usually shreds them useless in one day. If she does any more damage I may opt for a replacement. Till then, we'll live with it. I would recommend this pad. It's the toughest crate pad I have come across.
  • Great at First... Review by Brianna (Posted on 4/25/2016)
    Overall Quality
    The quality of these beds is very good, but my dog (11 month old pit bull) chewed through his first TUFF crate pad in just eighteen days. He chews on just about everything and has massive jaw muscles, so it wasn't a huge surprise that he managed to chew through this bed (we had high hopes, though!). The customer service was incredible, though. I emailed customer support, and they already had a new bed preparing to ship to us before they even personally responded to my message. Their response was very prompt and personalized--they gave us tips on how to help prevent our puppy from chewing on the pad, among other things. Unfortunately, he managed to chew through the replacement pad in just one day, and we think this is because he figured out how to chew through the material effectively with the first pad. I do not blame the quality of the crate pad on this issue one bit, as our puppy is a big chewer and is very strong. We have removed it from his crate until he grows out of his chewing phase (or learns what is OK to chew on), and will replace it as soon as we can. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a mild to moderate chewer, but if your dog is a severe chewer and/or is very strong, I would recommend waiting to put any bedding in their crate until they are out of the chewing phase. Overall, the quality is fantastic (it took him way longer than we thought it would to chew through it the first time!), and I would definitely purchase this product again when the time is right.

  • One TUFF bed! Review by Del J. (Posted on 4/25/2016)
    Overall Quality
    My pup has chewed her way through 7 beds. I continually replaced them, each one more durable than the last. As soon as I discovered K9 Ballistics I placed an order right away. I was doubtful that the crate pad I ordered would be able to withstand the constant chewing gum and tearing my pup is known for. I opened the bed when it arrived, tossed it on the floor, and watched as Birdie tried to have her way with it . After about an hour, she gave up chewing and tossing it around, curled up, and took a nap. Great bed!

    We are on our third bed. Yes, our dog is a chewer. He seems to find the tag everytime and starts to chew. But after we send a picture to k9 ballistics, they send us our new bed. No questions asked.

  • First Time Buyer & Amazing Customer Service Review by Prosper, TX (Posted on 4/25/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Originally, I purchased the Orthopedic TUFF Crate Pad as well as the TUFF Bed Crate Pad-Large to see which one would hold up the best. Hands down the TUFF Bed Crate Pad is what you need! Within two days of receiving the orthopedic one, my malamute ended up chewing through the corners and pulling out the foam.

    As for the customer service and warranty, they were very quick to respond and helpful. Instead of moving forward with the warranty refund, I asked if I could just exchange the orthopedic one out for the one that actually worked for me. Not only did I receive a new bed within a few days, they also sent me an additional bed!

    My golden ate a hole in her first K-9 Ballistics crate pad. The company immediately sent out a second one and so far, so good.

She has a habit of sleeping under a bed on the plastic tray, but she's been resting her arms on it today.

    I purchased this crate pad in hopes it would stand the test against my anxious chewer; however, it lasted only hours while we were away (I should have known better, as this dog has EATEN a Nylabone).
    I am giving this bed 5 stars because it truly is great quality; if you have a moderate chewer, this bed might work for you. Also, you cannot beat the 90 day guarantee - I opted for a replacement crate pad, and the chewer's sister was more than happy to take it off his hands!

    Our 11 month old puppy has been through two beds with chewing and one with stomach issues in the past three months. She also destroyed two blankets we used in place of beds in her crate before taking a chance on a K9 Ballistics Crate Pad... She hasn't even tried to destroy it. We bought a bed that was in essence too big but, with the flexibility of the bed it just folds up the edges of the crate a couple inches all the way around and she just leans on it. She loves her new bed!

    My husky/aussie mix is a 40lb 9 month old puppy and can destroy things a lot faster than you would think. She has gone through 3 beds including a Kong bed, (which she destroyed in 2 days) but this Tuff crate pad she attempted a little bit the first couple of days, but has given up chewing on it as it took no damage and I don't think it is fun for her to chew on. She does sleep on it regularly though. Got here fast and does what they say. We are very satisfied.

    I bought a Tuff Crate Pad a few months ago for my goldendoodle. Sadly we got a new washer and it tore up the bed a bit (so weird, as I know these are typically washing machine safe). I was so bummed, and emailed customer service to explain what happened and ask if they'd be willing to provide a discount code. I was a little outside the 90 day warranty window but they honored the warranty anyway and ended up shipping me a brand new bed free of charge! This company is amazing, AND their products are incredible. My dog loves her bed and hasn't been able to tear it up or puncture it in any way. Very satisfied customer (and pup).

  • Bummer...she got it already! Review by Lisa Mitts (Posted on 4/15/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I got the cujo cot a few months back, and so far, that's held up perfectly to Charlotte our big Lab/German Shepherd 1 year old "puppy" that chews everything to pieces. I just don't like the cot alone as it's so noisy and bouncy like a trampoline as she jumps onto it and not very "cozy" for her. Sooooo since it's held up so well over a good 4 months now, I thought I would add a topper to it and bought the crate pad. I like the cot as it's off the ground too so her shedding stays mostly on the cot or the pad, and the pad on top should have warmed it up some. When she jumps on it's now soft and quiet.

    Within only a week though she'd chewed a 4" diameter hole in the edge of the crate pad it and started to unstuff it. Not sure why she didn't finish it off, but I was hoping we would make it through 90 days. Sorry to say we didn't.

    Before returning it I am experimenting by putting a pants iron on patch over the hole so now there's no stuffing showing and the hole's "patched", to see if she will try it again or if maybe that one event was all I was going to have to deal with. If it stays "fixed", I may not send it back, or at least may feel better knowing the new one will have a chance, but I think the odds are pretty good she's gonna gnaw through the rest of it and I will wake up once again, sometime in the next few days, to a pile of fluff. :-(
  • So Far So Good But.... Review by Marilyn (Posted on 4/15/2016)
    Overall Quality
    But a few days after the pad arrived our puppy got hit by a car and received a broken leg and a cone for the next 6 - 8 weeks, not allowing her the ability to get at the pad to chew it...to our knowledge anyway. She is a little banged up and we are watching her closely as she received internal injuries and some deep cuts on her front paws. But she is a 9 month old Coonhound/Beagle mix, very strong muscles and in excellent shape so we are hopeful she will have a complete recovery. Then the real test will begin when the cone is removed from her and she has access to the pad. We shall see.

    The first crate pad was amazing, went 60 days without my lab mix destroying it (this dog took a chunk out of a windowsill and can shred a bed in ten minutes). Unfortunately, she found the Achilles heel on this pad...the small tag sewed into the seam of the pad. K9 Ballistics backed up their warranty and replaced the pad. Upon receipt of the new crate pad, I removed the tag and sprayed that area with bitter apple..so far, so good. I have since ordered the bolstered bed and the throw (in the rip stop material). I highly recommend these products!

    Upon finding about the K9 ballistics product line, I was really just hoping to find a dog bed that would last me at least a month or two, that I could reorder as necessary. I was, and am EXTREMELY impressed with the durability of this product. (Tuff crate pad). My dog, Hunter, is a 100 pound American bulldog, and he chews with the best of them. He made it through his past few beds in a matter of hours, including a kong bed (Kong products, in my experience usually are quite durable) that lasted one day. We have had this bed for 3 months now, and despite maximum effort, Hunter has not made a dent in this bed. I cannot suggest this product enough. If I DO ever have to get another bed for whatever reason, I will buy nothing but K9 ballistics.

    ...and this crate pad is worth it's weight in gold. While my severely crate-anxious Lab was able to chew two small holes in this crate pad, it was more durable than any I have tried throughout many years of pet parenting and/or rescue fostering. This is a dog that has eaten his way out of two crates and attempted to free himself from an "indestructible" crate. The company stood behind their product and sent a replacement. Our dog is making wonderful progress via specialized training and medication, and actually has not tried to chew this second pad. It's a breeze to wash and wipe off in between laundering too. I'm sold by this company's products and customer service...all the way around. Thanks K9 Ballistics!!

    Overall Quality
    Had a smaller Tuff Crate Pad for a Boxer with a history of destroying crate pads that worked great & actually helped with crate anxiety but that was for a grown dog.

    The second pad was for a young (and RAPIDLY growing English Mastiff) and it has been as good or better than the first. The pup is coming into his last canines and chews on everything a little bit - no damage. Further, as with the Boxer, the pad made his crate a favorite place to hang out and helped immensely with crate training.

    These things look great, are as durable as K9 Ballistics claims & have made life comfortable for both of my dogs. I'll never buy anything else.
  • Disappointed for the money we paid Review by Kelsey (Posted on 3/31/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Our 22lb terrier mix is a chewer and any bedding we tried to put in his crate ended up with holes in it. I came across the K9 Ballistics website and based on the reviews, thought this would be great for him. I tried the small first which was a bit too big for his crate and he chewed it open (I blamed it on the fact that it was too big and made it a bit easier to get the fabric between his cheek teeth to gnaw). They did hold to their guarantee and sent a new bed in a smaller size. It fit the crate perfectly and he left it alone for a couple of weeks, but I came home the other day to stuffing all over his crate with a good sized hole in the bed. I guess most other people's dogs aren't very persistent in their chewing habits, because this bed didn't hold up well for us at all.

    My dog is a powerful chewer who has already torn up two beds and multiple towels and blankets. Investing in the Tuff crate pad was a great choice! The material is heavy and the stitching is professionally done, and he shows no interest in putting it in his mouth. I just washed it for the first time, too (gentle cycle, cold, tumble dry low) and it held up beautifully. I did take the company's advice and spray the bed with bitter spray, which definitely helps deter chewers. Some reviewers have complained that it's not thick, but everyone needs to keep in mind that this is a CRATE PAD, not a thick orthopedic pet bed. It's perfectly cushy enough for a crate.

    I purchased four of these. One for a Doberman who eats blankets and chews crate pads and rips open zippers. So far this mat has held up very well. Another for a Staffordshire Bull Terrier that shreds everything put in her crate. She has not been able to destroy this mat.
    They are great and easy to keep clean.
    I would highly recommend them.

    At first, we were thrilled with the tuff crate pad. It lasted about 2 months before our 1 year old boxer mix chewed a hole in it. We received the replacement as promised... Unfortunately, the second one lasted about 2 nights. The service was great and the product was better than most but not quite enough for our aggressive chewer.

    Product arrived on time and was a size larger than I ordered which was ok. My 7 yr old Dobie has torn up many beds in the past. He either didn't like the smell or sound of the bed and wouldn't get on it for a few days. Now he likes it and hasn't yet tried to chew it. I don't use it in a crate but on "his" end of the sofa. I cover it with a fake sheep skin and folded beach towel which are easier to wash and keep clean.

    My most destructive female still hasn't been able to chew into her pad. She has been on it almost two weeks. She chews on any bedding she has been on until this pad. Now she resignedly just sleeps on it In the past she has shredded AND ate a number of blankets including an XL faux sheep's wool pad. I then got her one of those indestructible raised beds and when she couldn't find anything to sink her teeth in, she turned it over and chewed up the PVC legs and rubber floor protectors. I plan to buy more over time for the less determined others.

    i have a Golden Retriever who has chewed up any type of bedding I have given him.... pads, towels, etc. I felt for him having to lay in the cold plastic bottom of his crate but I can't afford to buy a new dog bed every couple weeks. Did some digging on indestructible dogs beds, found this one. Decided to give it a go on the condition that if he chewed this one up, he'd never get another bed and would have to sleep on the plastic tray bottom of his crate. It arrived a couple weeks ago and not only does he love it, he's never tried to chew it!!! It's very durable but soft to lie on, and very easy to clean (he did have an accident on it, but it washed right off). I'm very pleased with my purchase and would definitely recommend to anyone.

This was before the pad had even been in his presence for a full 24 hours.If I leave it with him when he's not tired I gaurantee that it would be nothing but threads.

  • Great Crate Pad Review by Pittie Mom (Posted on 3/10/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Our 9 months old Pitbull Mix pup loves to drag around, wrestle with and chew on, as well as sleep in and on, his Kong bed and crate pad (for a smaller crate). They held up amazingly well, but needed a few stitches here and there. When we got a larger crate for him, we knew we'd need an extremely durable crate pad to fit it. K9 Ballistics fit the bill. His K9 Ballistics crate pad has been great - comfy enough that he goes into his crate on his own to sleep, even after being in it for hours. And durable, yes! It's so well built, he hasn't found any vulnerable areas, top or underside. So far, he hasn't damaged it. Maybe he's growing out of the "I need to tear everything apart" stage - although he still chews up toys. I'm considering buying another while we're back and forth between 2 houses for a couple months.

  • Very disappointing and false advertising Review by Julie (Posted on 3/8/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I ordered 2 of these for my dogs - known bed destroyers in their crates. I was so excited to get them in, and my dogs loved them. They were sleeping in their crates even when they didn't have to be in there. But one of my dogs tore a big hole in hers within 48 hours of receiving it! The other lasted 1 week. These are NOT chew proof. They have false advertising. They should be called chew resistant or something other than chew proof, because it took a week for both of them to be destroyed - $120 wasted. Customer service was quick to respond but their options for the warranty are not good at all. Yes, they offer a replacement pad but I have a feeling those wouldn't last very long either, now that my dogs know they can be destroyed very quickly, so that was not a viable option for me. Their other options are 50% refund or 50% off a cujo cot raised aluminum bed. That's it, only a 50% refund. I was very disappointed by those options. I ordered two of the raised beds because per customer service those are basically indestructible, so I'm waiting for them to come in to see how they work. So now I've spent $240 on beds to be extremely disappointed for something I feel was very severely falsely advertised.

    The crate pad is impressive, no doubt. Seems comfortable, yet well constructed and tough as nails. Good looking, too. Despite all that, our eight month old yellow lab, with teeth like a velociraptor, managed to chew a hole through it on day one. I was amazed, and more than a bit discouraged. We even sprayed it with bitter Apple scent. That makes four different brands and styles he's abused. For now anyway, he's resting on the wire cage bottom, over a sheet of half inch plywood.
  • Overall Good- but not Chew Proof Review by Elizabeth (Posted on 3/7/2016)

    This has definitely been the highest quality bed we have found yet for our Akita mix, and it has withstood his chewing habits the best. Unfortunately, he already tore a small hole in it within 3 hours of having it in his crate. However, and what we consider his "breaking in" process, he has not torn it to pieces much like other beds. Thus far, although it is not "chew proof" per say, it is definitely more sturdy than anything else we have tried yet.

  • Great for my Great Dane! Review by B (Posted on 3/3/2016)
    Overall Quality
    We have an ~8 month old Great Dane who never chewed on blankets until his 6 month mark. Once he turned 6 months, he started chewing and destroying every blanket we put in his crate (despite having plenty of toys). He has tried to destroy this bed, but it has held up tremendously. Transaction was smooth and it shipped fairly quick. We were worried about how comfortable it would be, but it is cushier than we thought it would be.

    I read great reviews and heard good things about k9ballistics and decided to give it a try. Of course you pay a premium, but it has held up 100% and has been worth every penny. It really isn't expensive for a higher end bed either, ours was just pricier because we had to get the largest one (which fit our crate perfectly). My dog is POWERFUL too, so it isn't just mild chewing. When he wants to tear something up, he does it. I have came home a few times and it was obvious that he had tried to chew through it as it was flipped over or sitting different than when I left, but no signs or tear or anything. Worth every penny.

    Our Great Dane is 110 lbs now at 8 months and the bed can handle him, and I am confident that it will handle him when he gets to 150 lbs+ too.

    This crate pad seems to be quite durable. It took my dog a week or so to get used to it. Its puffier than her old one and the sides lift up when she stands on it but she's comfortable with it now. The only drawback is (apparently) I have an odd size crate because this pad (and the old one) doesn't quite cover the bottom of the crate, which would be no big deal but the bottom isn't solid, its bars so I do worry that she might hurt a paw.

    My pup, who is a year old now, is into textiles and has destroyed any bed (or dog toy, errant sock, bath mat, etc.) he has been left alone with so far. He hasn't spent a lot of time with the new bed yet (it is in the crate he uses in the car and while hanging out at agility trials), but he has not shown any interest in taking it on thus far. The real test will come this weekend. My other boys will be competing at an agility trial and there is no crating for dogs not entered in the trial, so the youngster will have to be in his car crate for extended periods for 3 days. Time will tell.

    My Bulldog would eat every type of bedding we put in his crate. And when I say "eat" I mean he would ingest it and then expel it later. This was very dangerous. He is also allergic to plastic so he can't lay on the base of his crate without something over it. I tried this bed and it is wonderful. He has not even put the tiniest of holes in it. It is also very easily washed, which is great because my bulldog is super stinky. All in all a wonderful crate pad that I will highly recommend to any highly chewing dog owner.
  • Great Quality, didn't work for my dog though Review by Matt (Posted on 2/25/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Was hopeful, yet skeptical that this would work for my 3 y/o Doberman. Reading reviews that others left saying they had dogs that usually chewed through everything, but not through this bed, gave me a glimmer of hope. 1st time I left my dog alone with it in his crate he chewed a hole in it and pulled out some stuffing. I will say that it wasn't a huge hole, which for my dog is impressive because if that were a normal bed he would have consumed a large portion of it, so it is definatley solidly made and could work for other dogs. I emailed K9 for a replacement and will use it for travel since it is definatley chew "resistent" and, when you have a 100 pound dog that can put a hole in normal fabric in about 5 seconds, chew resistent is a big deal because it should last for several minutes before a hole is formed and as long as I'm in the same vicinity I will be able to stop him chewing before it's too late.

    Unfortunately, my small but mighty (40#) Lab mix was able to tear small holes throughout the crate pad. This was my final attempt, she has destroyed several crate beds, including Ninja bed. The fact that this pad was impenetrable for 2+ Wks. has been the best. I guess she is doomed to a bare crate. And yes, I provide many treats, Kong filled, etc.... She is my 4th dog, all crate trained, and my first experience with such destruction. She never chews around the house, sleeps on a dog bed w/o chewing??
  • He stopped crying! Review by Mary E (Posted on 2/22/2016)
    Overall Quality
    This is the first bed, cushion, towel or blanket we've had in 9 months that my 11 month old heeler hasn't chewed through or tried to destroy. He is a typically overactive heeler, but is allowed to run free during the day and gets intentionally exercised twice a day after breakfast & dinner, but he's always had a bad chewing problem. He gets bored with the tons of nylabones and kong toys we've bought, and just wants to tear things apart. He's still doing that with the occasional random household object, but he no longer tries to eat his bed. As an added surprise bonus, my dog started sleeping in longer in the mornings literally after the first night sleeping on this bed in his crate. He's been crated at night all of his life, but usually only lasts from 11pm - 5am before crying to be let out. I know part of it's he's finally growing up, but the timing with the new bed is pretty obvious.

    We received our Tuff crate pad a few weeks ago and I have to agree with the others it is great. We have a boxer pup that chewed everything up couldn't even put a blanket in his crate. The day we received the tuff crate pad our dog "Tank" went in his cage and curled up and stayed there the rest of the evening with the cage door open. Too funny. The next morning nothing was chewed so I thought ,ok, this is not possible and couple weeks went by and still nothing he loves it. Yay!!!

    I bought the large TUFF Crate pad a few weeks ago and it is still going strong. My 14 month old male Rottweiler has been unable to chew through the pad. He tried for about 3 days, but finally gave up. Other pads and beds I have tried lasted only a few hours to maybe a full day. This pad is well worth the money!

    My dog definitely loved the bed. She jump right in there and laid down. Unforunately, it didn't last. My dog destroyed the bed in less than a week.

    It's been a couple weeks, but so far so good! Our dog seems to love it and hasn't tried to chew it apart yet. It dries off easily when her water bottle leaked a bit in there too.

    This crate pad like the other two beds we previously purchased from K-9 Ballistics is a superb piece of equipment and has made a 14 year old pup very comfortable. these are the only beds that a 1 yr. old has not been able to chew up within two weeks!!

    I have a 12 year old golden retrieve and she loves both the beds I bought. 1 was suppose to be for my german shepherd puppy but the golden retrieve took both of them. Since she is older and her hips sometimes don't move so well, I let her lay on the bed because it is very well patted and she seems to breathe better with her head propped up on the side. I received both beds on time and they r well worth the money.

    The culprit is my Mom's Jack Russell that I inherited when she recently passed way. The previous beds that had been bought at Walmart and a pet store were usually found in little pieces on the back porch. When I put her TUFF crate pad out there she chewed up the fabric tag on it but so far has not been able to damage the bed!!! I do however find it in different places on the porch. This was a good investment and I think she likes it as I see her laying on it all the time.

    My boxer girl chewed a hole in the first one which was replaced with another one in about a week. They recommended using a spray on it but haven't tried that yet. Very pleased with the TUFF crate pad and the company in the replacement process. It is holding up well so far.

    I am very happy with the TUFF Crate Pad. I have a puppy that chewed up everything I tried before. He was on the plastic bottom of his crate and I am glad to have something to put in his crate that he cannot chew...and he cannot chew this crate pad.

    Our 2 year old anxious German Shepherd chewed through the edges of her first crate pad after about a month. It was replaced promptly and shipped right out. The company provided suggestions such as using bitter apple and so far she has left the second pad alone. It's easy t
