Chew Proof Rating
Light Chewers & ScratchersBuilt K9 Tough, resisting 90% of chewing dogs, good for almost any dog. Backed by our 90 Day Chew Proof Guarantee, these are the bed covers our business was built on. If our proprietary TUFF flex Ballistic material wasn’t tough enough, we've upgraded it with Rip-Stop technology!
These bolstered beds feature two zippers on the back of the bed, concealed by pocket flaps.
If you have a persistent chewer this bed is not right for your dog. While it utilizes our super tough Ballistic RipStop material, the high bolstered edges provide an easy target for dogs who like to chew. These covers are water resistant, odor resistant, hair resistant, and machine washable. These are some of the most practical and long lasting beds available anywhere.
TUFF 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!)
Velcro Enclosure (Bed Sans Zipper!)
Our Tuff bed’s industrial strength velcro closures are hidden on the underside of the mattress covers to prevent the urge to try and chew it. By using velcro we remove the danger of a plastic or metal zipper that can be an attractive place to start chewing.
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 sythetic 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!

Excellant product!We have a pig sanctuary and the pigs are real tuff on beds/covers. So far your covers are holding up. We love the quality and durability of your product.
Very satisfiedGreat cover, as represented, good quality, comfort, durability as advertised. Fits great!
Great quality. Will buy again.Got this giant bed for two pit mixes. Left them alone and they started to eat it. They didn’t get too far on destruction so I was satisfied it held its own with my incredibly strong dogs. I emailed to get warranty replacement and they sent in good time considering it was Christmas. I will be getting another one of these soon for another room. Only bed to survive my dogs and I have bought at least 25-30 in two years of having my girls.
Like a new bedNew cover worked perfectly on our medium orthopedic bolster bed that the dogs chewed the zipper on. Dark green color is very nice.
Great BedThe first cover lasted days before our Golden Retriever chewed the zipper on the bolster section and pulled the zipper teeth open. K9 Ballistics replaced the cover and so far so good. The cover is definitely tougher than any other dog bed we've had. I highly recommend it. I also love the cover because we have a puppy who is still housebreaking and this cover is extremely easy to wipe clean. I'm thinking of ordering the crate mats next.
Im truly impressedMy 130lb pit mix has torn up every bed i ever got him. This bed has truly stand up to the reviews. He did get a small corner open, but K9 ballistics did stand by their warrenty and give me a replacement. I have both covers on and so far he is doing good with it. He pulls it all over the house and then flops in it. It is a little bit loud, but im ok with it. He seems to really be comfortable in it. The bed is big enough for me and him to sleep in if we wanted to.
Great Customer Service and ProductWe originally ordered this bed for our 10 year old English Staffordshire Bull Terrier after she repeatedly destroyed the cheaper beds by chewing them if she got a little bored! From the very beginning Ruby never attempted to chew the K9 Tuff bed, she just seemed to know not to bother! We then added another dog to the family (Tess), a Lab Retriever mix. We decided to order Tess her own bed with her name embroided and also got a second cover for Ruby with her name (have to be fair to both right)
great customer supportWell, I have to little 7 month old dachshund puppies and they plowed through the bed slowly but with definite determination.I got the large size thinking that it would give them a lot of space and be to heavy to drag around the room. LOL It started on one corner and worked the way around corner by corner, then found the zipper and pulled the whole interior out. I can't tell you how much green stuffing I cleaned up day by day.
True to their word, I contacted them and showed them pictures and they sent me a new cover and a new bolster. Can't ask for better customer service then what they provide.
Unfortunately, I have to contact them again as they already have destroyed one corner of the bolster, just the cover not the guts yet. Hopefully with cayenne pepper and that god awful no chew stuff you spray on it they'll stay away from it.
I'm hoping that as they grow they will stop with the chewing issues which is usually while I'm at work and they are bored. Even thought they have a huge room, thousands of toys and a doggie door to go in and out at their will.
I think this company is fantastic to deal with and with normal dogs this bed is probably heaven sent.
I have 2 large pups that are almost 9 months old. I've never seen pups that chew up things like these 2 do! After several beds, I purchased this bed. Unfortunately, the zipper was located by 1 of the pups & it all went down hill from there... BUT, not to worry!!! K-9 held to their promise & sent me a brand new bed along with some good suggestions on how to keep these pups under control. My correspondance thru email was professional & friendly. I'm 200% happy with K-9 products & customer service! I have the cujo bed & it's still intact & worth its price! I will be purchasing more of these same products when I get my outdoor kennels built, as they are of top quality & so comfortable for my pups. Thank you K-9, for coming to my rescue with your products!
Very pleased so far.So far I am very pleased with the bed, and so are the dogs. Had a little trouble putting the bolster filling into the bolster cover, but only because it is a LOT of filling. I have 3 French Bulldogs who love to nest. They are tough on covers and I don't mind paying a little more for a quality product, Up to now I have had to replace covers about every 3-4 months due to the scratching and digging. I will be watching the life of this product closely.
Great Bed!Our 2 Lab puppies have chewed through 4 beds already. I was concerned at purchasing a costly bed just to have them rip through it. With the chew guarantee I gave this bed a chance. Best money I ever spent! After one week and many tries the bed is still in one piece and they love laying on it. It is as comfy as the couch and movable from room to room to car! I have already recommended this to 3 fellow co-workers.
Careful dog ownerMy dogs enjoy stretching out on the beds. They are larger than I envisioned which is good for my pups. Good quality, soft thick cushions. I am very satisfied with your product.
BOOGIE LOVES HIS BEDWe ordered the XXL bed for our bull mastiff. He love is and the size is perfect! Boogie has plenty of room to comfortably stretch out or sleep on his back (which is so often does). We are very pleased with this purchase.
Love it!After one week of service, I have finally found a bed that is truly indestructible and I can put away my sewing kit. My two Irish Terriers are world class chewers, but they have met their match. They love the bolster. Great product!
Original Tuff bedWell, the bed is sturdy and well-made. I don't have any complaints about the construction. But my dogs both refuse to sleep on it. I think they don't like the plastic smell of the material. I've washed the cover and aired it outdoors but they still refuse to use on it.
Complete waste of money. Within 30 mins of putting the bed together and putting it in my dog's room he had destroyed it. The cheap beds I previously bought at PetSmart lasted longer. I thought this would be a good investment, but now all I'm hoping is that someone responds to my request for a resolution to the complete failure of this "TUFF" bed....that didn't make it one day. So far, I haven't heard from anyone about what they will do to make this right. Hopefully soon.
Our 72lb Weimaraner loves his new bolster bed. He is very much a "nester" and the bed has stayed fluffy and stood up to his nesting. We got the large size for him and it fits him perfectly.
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 is "Hydro-fuge" Technology?
Our Polyester filled mattresses come with our ventilated Hydro-Fuge mattresses inside for good air permeability and heat dissipation. Hydo-fuge technology means that they have good water permeability (water passes right through them). They are also channeled to prevent clumping, and filled with our eco-friendly recycled fiber.
Does this bed have zippers?
This Bolstered TUFF Bed has two zippers. The first is the opening for the nesting or orthopedic mattress, which runs around the back bottom edge of the bed. The second zipper is concealed beneath a flap of Ripstop material and gives access to the bolster pillow opening which runs the full length of the bolster pillow.
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 TUFF bed or TUFF 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 Chew Proof Guarantee on all Original, Round, Orthopedic, Mini TUFF Beds and TUFF Pads. If your dog does manage to chew through one of the TUFF Beds within the guarantee period, we'll replace the cover, free of charge. If your dog manages through our TUFF Pads or Mini TUFF 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 TUFF beds?
Our TUFF 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!
