Chew Proof Rating
Light Chewers & ScratchersBuilt K9 Tough, capable of withstanding diggers, scratching, and occasional chewing. Backed by our 90 Day Warranty, this is the durable fabric our business was built on. If our proprietary Tough flex Ballistic material wasn’t tough enough, we've upgraded it with Rip-Stop technology!
This blanket is excellent for dogs that like to track their outdoor adventures inside the house. Resisting water, dirt, odor, and fur, these blankets will protect your furniture from whatever your dog leaves behind and can be machine-washed for easy cleaning. The Rip-stop ballistic nylon will also guard soft surfaces from scratching and light chewing. Due to the blanket's relative flexibility, it can be easier for more persistent chewers to latch onto folds, corners, or edges of the blanket and potentially do damage; we do not recommend this blanket for heavy chewers.
TOUGH COVER™ TECHNOLOGY
RipStop Ballistic Material™
The chew-proof ballistic material with rip-stop tech avoids tears and prevents growth if they start. It is just one more detail that makes these beds tough as nails (and tougher than teeth!)
We're proud to say our interior seams are double stitched and serged. This prevents snags, fraying, and damage from chewing.
Additionally, we include a layer of material at the bed's corners. Corners are the first things to go when a dog decides to start chewing. By reinforcing this weak point, we greatly increase the life of the bed.
Reduced Seam Construction
Right after corners, seams are the weak spots which dogs exploit most frequently in beds. By reducing the number of seams on a bed fewer temptations present themselves, and therefore reduce the risk of demolition!
Repels Dirt, Hair, and Moisture
Tightly woven synthetic fibers make this bed chew proof, and also resistant to a wide array of other damaging forces. Water, dirt, hair, and muck simply don't cling to the bed and can be easily wiped away; after wiping with a damp cloth the bed often looks as good as new!
Accidents happen, it's a fact of life; Murphey's law if you will. Having a machine washable dog bed helps clean up those accidents quickly and easily. For those messes that do not wipe away, let the machine washer do the work.
We recommend washing with cold water on a gentle cycle, and then air drying. The heat and friction of a machine dryer could shorten the lifespan of the bed, and we want our products to last as long as possible!
Synthetic Fibers Resist Odors
The extremely dense synthetic fiber weave of our Ballistic Material not only stops moisture but also odors! Dirt, grime, and even mold spores have a tough time sticking to the bed cover, and when these elements can't stick around neither can the smell.
Dust mites cause a large number of allergic reactions for dogs. Mold and mildew spores can also trigger allergic reactions. The synthetic fibers used in this cover prohibit dust mite invasions and make life difficult for mold spores as well. These allergens require organic fibers to build their homes, and this cover uses a 100% synthetic fiber construction. Dust mites beware!

Great productThank you it’s been a dream not having to pick up shredded blanket
I would buy it again.The blanket is sturdy, but my pup has already chewed a big hole in it. However, regular bedding would have been totally destroyed by now.
I recommend K9 Ballistics to anyone as THE BEST!!I first met K9 Ballistics five years ago with a bed for my Standard Schnauzer "super - chewer", at which time I learned that they fully live up to their claims and warrantees. I have since bought a second bed for an additional location and, just now, their "tough - tarp/blanket" which is every bit as superior as their beds. Their products are absolutely the best, and they are really fine people. which is just as important.
GoodDurable. Dog made a hole in 3 days. They both love the blanket.
We love our tough tarp blanketsAttempted every different type of blanket you can think of. Nothing stood a chance with this destructive guy. He tore through them all. We have purchased several of these tough tarps hoping we could get them to last more than a day. We have happily been using our new blankets daily for 6 month's now and not had so much as a tear. All of the seams are still tight even after the nearly daily washings in the washer. They even softened up quite a bit. Worth ever penny and more. We just ordered more and they showed up so quickly. I highly recommend this product.
Good value for the price, looks like it will hold up well.I am giving this Tarp five stars because of the 10 dogs I have, only one has even bothered to chew it. Unfortunately, I put it over a loveseat he favors and he immediately chewed through a corner. Then another. Took him all of five minutes, so that was a little disappointing, but I don't feel it is a quality matter for your product, if that makes sense. He's a big dog, and a big chewer.
I've had a few moisture alarms, and can say that the moisture beads up on the surface and, if attended to within a few minutes, can be easily blotted away. I like that I can put it over my queen size beds and if the dogs are a little damp or have damp paws, my bedding is well protected.
Great, warm blanket for heavy chewersThe quality of this item is VERY high. It's very heavy and provides a lot of warmth for Nyx. It seems rather stiff, like a tarp but she burrows under it and sleeps comfortably. She even drags it about the house. Nyx is an American Bully and she is an extreme chewer. She's destroyed several heavy duty Kong toys. That said, she did manage to slightly fray the corner of this blanket. Still, I would highly recommend this blanket to anyone with a heavy chewer.
I just bought a second oneWorked great! Nice, quality product.
Sturdy clothSo far, so good! Although this blanket is a bit big for my dog's crate, I folded it and put it in there. She seemed okay with it. Knowing my dog is a "nester," the next day I wadded it up and threw it in there and she seems to be enjoying that better. The material is pretty stiff for balling up and nesting, but so far, she hasn't tried to shred it.
My Chocolate Lab loves it!Thank you K9 Ballistic! This is the only blanket that my chocolate lab has ever laid on and gone to sleep! He loves it! He is not trying to rip it apart. He immediately drug all other blankets outside and tore them up. This one he is sleeping on! Its a Christmas miracle!!!
Perfect as advertised.It is exactly as it is described. It‘s TUFF and definitely chew-proof. Would make s perfect bed liner, couch cover, or car seat protector. It is NOT soft and cuddly. It is tough and chew proof. So just make sure you know what you are buying, and why. It is made of the same type of chew proof material as their crate liner covers and bed covers. If that is what you are looking for, you will be 100% satisfied.
GreatLittle Chihuahua/Min Schnauzer mix has torn apart Kong beds because she goes for the seams. This blanket folded up in her kennel as a bed is an excellent replacement.
Take the reviews seriously; we should haveWe purchased two of them, and our dogs won't use them. They are not at all like a blanket that you would think of. Think of an outdoor BBQ or lawn mower cover; they feel much more like one of those. Unfortunately, we wasted our money. But if you want some type of a cover, the quality really is excellent; I can't deny that.
Lives up to its name and reputationThis thing is sturdy! Built to last!
Mastiffpitbull proofMy dog who destroying stuff is a art has found something he enjoys laying on and can't tear apart bonuses for the easy to clean part
Blanket is greatThe blanket was too small for our couch but I put it on top of a new dog bed and the puppy has not chewed it at all. I also use it to cover car seat when dogs are in the car. I am very happy with the blanket.
Good for outside useThis blanket is a hard blanket not soft but we use it when our dane is outside on the concrete patio. Easy to wash and keeps her a little protected.
TUFF fabricUsing them to cover back seats in trucks, they repel dirt and are easy to get the hair off of...working great!
Didn't go to the dogsI originally bought the blanket to cover the couch,but found it to stiff.It is now being used for two pot belly pigs to sleep on so their tummies don't get cold.They love it
Good product!It's tough, not the most comfortable blanket, but he has not ripped it. He knolled a corner a bit, but gave up on it.
Great Protective BlanketGreat cover for the SUV and furniture. Protects well and easy to clean. No Chewing Yet!!
Great products, great customer service.This is a very tough and heavy blanket. More of a cover. Works well to cover couch, chair or car seat. Would not recommend it if your dog likes to snuggle in blankets.
I have one of the chew proof bed and I just love it. Has been a great money saver. My mini winner dogs would destroy regular bog bed almost every 2 days.
Love these products.
Great Blanket!Great blanket! Very durable! We use it over our own bed so the dog can enjoy it while we aren't! Great quality
Very DurableI have three GSP's and the blankets are holding up very well. They are stiff but I notice as time goes on they are becoming softer.
So far, So good.Very heavy duty product. Exactly what we were looking for.
More a tarp than a blanket.Appears to be a quality product but - my opinion - it is not a blanket, it is a tarp and has a stiff, plastic feel to it. I was originally planning to return it for a refund, but after considering the shipping and re-stocking cost, decided to keep it in stowed my truck to protect the back seat when the dogs ride.
BlanketMy dog chewed his blanket but, I love k9 ballistics they resolved my matter so quickly and so happy with how they handled it!
The Beast are tamed!!I love my dogs but they are wrecking machines,demolishing countless couch covers,quilts and dog beds.The TUFF BLANKET has turned out to be Great.Will defenitly buy another.
Great for protecting the couchThis blanket is awesome for protecting our brand new sofa from our 2 dogs. My dachshund has been unable to chew through it and actually shows little interest in doing so, which is amazing.
However, I only gave 4 stars because it doesn't really work as a blanket for my small dogs. It is too thick and heavy for them to burrow under. My chi mix in particular is not enamored with the blanket. That's ok though because I would rather my sofa not get destroyed. Highly recommend this product and plan on ordering a bed soon.
Buyer's remorseThis "blanket" is made of very strong material. However, it is stiff, non pliable, slippery, and even
with four dogs, it's of no use to me. It slides off furniture and cannot be molded to tuck in creases. It slides off the car seat. On the floor, the dogs actually walk around it and avoid it because it's simply not comfortable. Great fabric for a filled crate bed, covered with a real blanket. But for anything else, it's useless.
TUFF BlanketOn our 11th one. With 4 dogs, we use them all over the house. Awesome product and great service.
Company IntegrityI gave the bed 4 stars out of 5 only because my relentless Lab managed to get through it . I contacted the company and their return procedure was extremely rational and reasonable, however, I am what my former co-workers kindly called "computer challenged". I explained my inability to comply with e-photos and PDF files, etc. that they reasonably required to receive a replacement.
This company actually understood my problem and resolved the issue more than to my satisfaction. I may have rated the blanket as a 4 star but the as importantly the staff receives 6 stars out of 5 in my opinion.
Great company.!!!! Do business with them!!!! You will be happy with both the products and service.
Very GoodVery good- thank you!
Easily washesI have the TUFF blanket, a must have with (her) Ortho Bolstered TUFF bed.
The bed stays new & the TUFF blanket (easely) goes in the wash.
A little secret. A (shop brush) knocks off the loose black fir quicker than
a vacuum after wash. Unuasual but True!
OH, The gray (Suede) side for day time and the black fir side for Nite Time.
After playing on the gray all day, The black fir is like 600count for bedtime!
Tuff BlanketOur 3rd one and we've recommend to many others. It's a no brainer. Don't buy anything else.
Tuff BlanketWe bought 2, took them to seamstress, and now they cover the entire bed. Awesome product.
Tuff BlanketI purchased the TUFF Blanket to use in my Rav 4. I have 2 large dogs and the material is both a blessing & a curse. The material is great because it holds up against my 5 month old puppy chewing it and it protects my car from their nails. However I found out that they slide all over the place in the back of the car because of the material. Like other reviewers, I too wish it was a little bit longer. Other than that its great, cleans up easy, collects all their hair, fits nicely in the car, and is very sturdy!
Tuff Reversible ThrowI preferred the LUX reversible throw. The TUFF throw collects the hair and needs to be swept off -- it doesn't shake off as easily as the LUX throw.
I love the construction and the ultra-soft "fur" side. My only complaint - Since we use it to cover our Couch when we let the Dogs inside, I wish it came in 72X72. The 52" just isn't wide enough to cover the back AND the seat of the Couch.
Great!The throw is great. We use it to cover our dog's spot on the couch. The only problem is that it is quite loud when my dog jumps up on it, and it gradually slips off, but otherwise it is great.
Reverible ThrowI just purchased the Reversible Throw to use in the back of my Grand Cherokee where my Bloodhound rides. It is tough, easy to clean and saves the back of my vehicle from stains, hair, etc. We do Search and Rescue so my dog is almost always dirty after work and this works great!

If your dog chews through this product, it is covered under our warranty. We will send out, free of charge, one replacement bed cover (not including bed fill). This one-time warranty is good for up to 120 days from the day that K9 Ballistics shipped out your purchase.
Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat is Ballistic Fabric?
Ballistic Fabric is a thick, tough, synthetic material used for a variety of applications. Ballistic fabric was originally developed by the DuPont corporation as a material for flak jackets to be worn by World War II airmen. The term ballistic fabric takes its name from the fact that it was intended to protect its wearers from flying debris and fragmentation caused by bullet or artillery shell impacts.
What happened to the zippers?
In our efforts to make our beds the most chew-proof beds possible, we've removed the zippers and replaced them with concealed, industrial strength, Velcro closures on the undersides of the beds. Past versions of our beds had zippers, but thanks to some great feedback from our fine customers, we were able to spot this issue and make the change. Zippers were a weak point that appealed to chewing dogs, it was the first part on the beds that these dogs would go after and that was dangerous. What resulted was a design change that is not only more durable, but a safer product for your dog that reduces the temptation to chew in this area and potentially damage the bed.
What makes your ballistic fabric superior to other bed materials?
Canvas and fabric beds are not chew proof by any means. You have to remember, dogs have been known to chew through materials that you'd never even imagine a dog could chew through. Our military-grade ballistic material is used specifically for it's durability and toughness, which makes for a longer-lasting, chew proof product that outlasts other beds made from inferior materials. Most companies take an off the shelf fabric, one made for furniture or luggage, and use it on a dog bed. We've designed our own fabric built around the function of a dog bed. We've recently upgraded our ballistic material to be Ripstop, which means its now even better at withstanding moderate chewing and scratching. Our fabric is waterproof, so it can withstand rain, outdoor conditions with its UV protection, and pets which may be incontinent. There is nothing on the market that is built better. This is the best option for an all around durable bed. We have paid extreme attention to all the details.
Are your beds really "chew proof"?
To be fair, there's really nothing short of hard metal that is absolutely "chew proof" - dogs have been known to chew through kevlar, wood, bricks, chain link fences and light metals just to name a few! If a dog has the ability and wants to bad enough, they can chew through most materials. However, we advertise our beds as "chew proof", and we stand behind our beds as the most chew proof products available. Ultimately, what makes our beds "chew proof" is not only the materials that we use, but also our 90 Day Chew Proof Warranty!
My dog is a heavy chewer, which bed do you recommend?
The Cujo Cot should be the go to bed for all medium or heavy chewers. With our "No Chew" design, hidden fabric edges, and durable corner covers, and aluminum frame, there is nowhere for dogs to get ahold of the fabric on the bed. Once your dog is conditioned not to chew a Tough bed or Tough Bed Crate Pad can be added for extra comfort.
What if my dog does manage to chew up this bed?
We have a 90 Day Warranty on all Original, Round, Orthopedic, Mini Tough Beds and Tough Pads. If your dog does manage to chew through one of the Tough Beds within the warranty period, we'll replace the cover, free of charge. If your dog manages through our Tough Pads or Mini Tough Beds, we'll send out a free replacement. We're that confident!
Aren't all dog beds the same? What makes yours so different?
Our beds are actually built to inhibit the dog's ability to chew them. For starters, the covers of our beds are made out of military grade 1680 denier ballistic nylon, the same material worn as body armor by US combat forces! Unlike other beds, our ballistic nylon is far more chew resistant than cloth or other cheap fabrics that can be ripped apart at the seams. We take extra pains to engineer our beds with concealed Velcro closures on the bottom of the beds to minimize the dog's temptation and ability to chew in this area. Rounded corners and solid, well-sewn seams also greatly reduce the possibility of the dog grabbing hold of a weak seam.
What about cleaning the bed?
Our beds are super-easy to clean! First separate the cover and the fill and place in the washing machine separately. Close the Velcro on the cover completely before washing. Make sure to wash on delicate and cold. Air dry or line dry are the best way to dry the bed. Heat drying is not recommended. Please note vomit and urine have corrosive properties which can penetrate through the water resistant cover damaging the inner fill. Clean all urine and vomit immediately with a dry towel. Remove the inner fill and wash the bed cover using the instructions mentioned above. Customers in the past have told us that a deodorizer (ex. Febreeze) can take away the urine or vomit smell.
Is there any kind of assembly required for the Tough beds?
Our Tough beds require minimal assembly. Simply place the cover over the fill and close the Velcro. If you are having trouble placing the cover over the fill, try placing the cover on the floor (Velcro side up). Fold the fill and insert one side into one part of the Velcro. With one side in, unfold the fill while inserting the remaining portion into the second half of the cover. Close the Velcro and you're done!
