Built to Perform for Dogs That Are Tough on Their Beds

Eco-Benefits & Durability:

Ballistic Fabrics: Our dog beds are designed to last longer. Buying less often leads to a smaller carbon footprint…less energy used, less fuel burned and fewer materials in the landfill all lead to a cleaner planet. Spending a little more money upfront means you have access to products that can last a lifetime. A little more money spent initially is going to get you a better-quality product and one which will last a lot longer. Our fabrics are easily spot cleaned. This helps save water that would otherwise be used in the laundry process.

Recycled Fiber Fill: We’ve given new life to millions of plastic bottles, changing them into our soft, certified-safe recycled polyester fill. We've upcycled more than 5,000,000 bottles over the last 5 years alone, giving them new life and keeping them out of landfills longer.

More Information:

We engineered a crate pad that will hold up to pups that like to dig and scratch. Water, hair, and dirt resistant beds are designed, engineered, and built to last a lifetime.

Specially engineered anchor points for fastening to standard size crates. Easy to spot clean or machine washable. America's best-selling crate pad. Filled with K9 Certified Clean™ Recycled Polyfill, this crate pad is perfect for dogs that like to scratch or dig before laying down.

Note: Velvet Rip-Stop fabric offers a soft touch feel and a quieter experience.

 *Although we strive to make the strongest, most durable, and safest dog beds available for our pups, experienced pet parents must understand that a determined persistent chewer can eventually get through almost anything. As with any product you give your dog, if they have a history of destroying or ingesting objects, supervision is highly recommended.

Whether you're taking your dog in the car, staying at home, going on a camping trip or on other travels, he will have a comfortable place to crash. These crate pads are versatile and practical dog beds with many applications. They are covered in a heavy duty hard wearing 100% ballistic water resistant material which is easy to keep clean. You can brush off loose dirt, wipe with a wet cloth and then rinse under a running tap, hose, or machine wash. Sewn closed and filled with a soft bonded pad of Thermal Polyester Fiber to give warmth, insulation & comfort. Tough Velvet pads feature an additional layer of polyester fibers adhered to the underlying RipStop nylon, which provides a softer, quieter sleeping surface for your pup. This plush surface may attract more dirt and fur than traditional Tough material, and is optimal for indoor use only.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a Chew Proof Armored or Tough Rip-Stop dog bed?

If you have a persistent chewer, or a dog that chews heavily at their bedding, you need a Chew Proof Armored bed. The all-metal frame and lack of vulnerable spots means these beds will hold up against even the most determined destroyers. If your dog doesn’t chew so much but does like to dig at their bed or drag it around the yard, then a Tough Rip-Stop bed is a good option. The ballistic Rip-Stop cover will resist scratching, tearing, and roughhousing.

What if my dog does manage to chew up this bed?

We offer a 120-day warranty on both our Chew Proof Armored and Tough Rip-Stop series of beds. If your dog manages to damage one of these beds within the warranty period, we’ll replace the cover once, free of charge. For items that do not have removable covers, we’ll send out a full replacement. If you don’t want a replacement, we can issue you store credit for its value instead, which can be applied towards a different item on our site.

What are the Tough bed covers made from?

Our covers are made from 1200 denier ballistic fabric. This heavy-duty material resists tearing and punctures and will hold up much better against destructive behaviors than traditional bed covers. The grid-like Rip-Stop weave is an additional feature that further reinforces the strength of the fabric by preventing small tears or punctures from growing. An additional waterproof backing and water repellent coating helps protect the bed from moisture and spills.

What are the mattresses made from?

Our pillow and orthopedic mattresses are both made in the USA from CertiPUR-US certified foam. It’s made without ozone depleters, heavy metals, or formaldehyde and has low VOC emissions for indoor air quality. Orthopedic mattresses use solid foam to provide firm, dense support, while pillow mattresses are filled with shredded foam to provide a softer cushion that your dog can sink down and nestle into.

Are your car seat covers and other accessories also chew proof?

The only chew proof items we have are our Chew Proof Armored dog beds; accessories such as the dog leashes, collars, crate covers, and car seat covers are not chew proof or chew-resistant and should not be left unattended with a destructive dog. They are, however, made from extremely durable materials to resist wear and tear and hold up to heavy use, and they’ll last you a very long time.

Can I personalize my bed cover?

Yes, we offer embroidery on all products with removable covers. We offer several different colors of thread to choose from.

How do I know what size is best for my dog?
Is there any kind of assembly required for these beds?

Most of our beds have a removable cover. When the bed is first received, open the plastic wrapping of the mattress, allow it to expand, and then slide it into the cover and seal the closure. Orthopedic mattresses may need to be folded in half before you can slide them into the cover; they fill out the cover completely, so it can be a tight fit. Beds without separate covers, such as the Tough Crate Pad or Mini Tough Bed, only need to be unrolled from their packaging before they’re good for use. Our Ballistic Chew Proof cots come pre-assembled, and only need to have the legs screwed into the corners before they can be used.

How do I clean the bed?

Our beds are super easy to clean. All of our covers are machine-washable in cold water on a delicate cycle. Seal all Velcro or zipper closures before washing. Tumble dry on low heat or air dry. Orthopedic foam mattresses cannot be washed, but can be deodorized with baking soda. Beds without removable covers, such as the Tough Crate Pad and Mini Tough Bed, can be machine-washed whole. Please note that large and extra-large beds are not recommended in a household dryer but can be hosed off or washed in a commercial/industrial washer.

How will my dog's bed be shipped?

All orders are shipped via FedEx Home Delivery. Please note that since FedEx Home Delivery does not deliver to P.O. Boxes, you will need to provide a physical address when ordering so that we can ship the order out to you.

When will my dog's bed arrive?

Most orders ship within 2-3 business days and will arrive 3-5 days after processing. Personalized embroidery items take a little longer to prepare. 

Do you offer expedited shipping?

At this time we are unable to offer expedited options. If you need your order by a certain date, please contact us before placing the order to confirm that we can ensure delivery in time.

How do I correct, cancel, or return my order?

To cancel an order, please submit a Support Form with “Cancel/Change Order” as reason for inquiry. Please include your order number in the body or subject line of the email to help us resolve the issue right away. Since orders often ship the same day they are placed, it is important to contact us as soon as possible so that we can stop the order before it ships. Once the order is picked up we cannot cancel the order, but we can initiate a return. Please be aware that if the order has embroidery, it cannot be canceled, returned, or exchanged once the embroidery is complete.

Why don't you ship to Hawaii or Alaska? What about international orders?

We apologize for the inconvenience, but due to the shipping costs involved we currently do not ship outside the 48 contiguous continental United States. For Alaska, Hawaii, US territories, FPO/APO and international addresses, please consider a forwarding service like reship.com to have the order delivered to you.

I tried to place an order, but I got a “gateway transaction” error. Now there’s a pending charge on my card and I never received an order confirmation email. Did my order go through?

Unfortunately, it did not. A gateway transaction error occurs if the billing address entered does not match the billing address associated with your credit card. Failing this verification step will prevent an order from being placed, but you may still see a pending charge on your card from the attempted transaction. You card may even put these funds on hold to reserve them. However, since a valid order was not created and the funds cannot be transferred, the transaction will drop off your card and release the funds automatically. This typically takes a few business days. If you repeatedly get this error during checkout, you may want to contact your bank to confirm the billing address on file for your card, or checkout using a different card or PayPal instead.

How do I checkout using Sezzle? I only see shopPay, GPay, and PayPal.

ShopPay, GPay, and PayPal are for Express Checkout only. To pay via credit card or Sezzle, you’ll need to ignore those Express options and enter in your contact information into the fields provided on the first page, and then proceed to the shipping page. Once you’ve selected the shipping method, you can continue to the payment page that will offer you the option of paying with credit card, PayPal, or Sezzle. Select Sezzle from the list and click the “Complete Order” button. The site will then direct you to Sezzle, where you can complete the setup process for the payments. Please note that we have no control over Sezzle’s collection of payments, and if you have any trouble setting up the payment information or have any questions regarding the process, you will need to contact Sezzle’s customer service directly for more assistance.

    We're sorry to hear that the pad was damaged, Kayla! Since it sounds like she's a more persistent or determined chewer, we'd recommend using the warranty to get credit to apply towards the Chew Proof Armored Dog Crate Pad, since that's the chew proof version of this bed and it is designed to withstand much more destructive behaviors than the standard Tough Rip-Stop Dog Crate Pad.

    So far so good. We bought these to put inside our indoor/outdoor kennel run; they fit well and have not gotten the corners chewed off.

    We're sorry to hear that your dog was able to chew the pad, Beverly! If your pup tends to be a more persistent chewer when crated, we'd strongly recommend applying the warranty towards our Chew Proof Armored Crate Pad instead, which is the chew proof version of this product. Feel free to contact our customer care team for more assistance!
