Moderate Chewers & Scratchers

One tough bed, resisting 90% of chewing dogs and good for 98% of all dogs. Velcro closures prevent emergency zipper related veterinary visits. Also features TUFF Flex Ballistic Material with new RipStop technology! Water resistant, machine washable, and odor resistant covers and fills make these some of the most practical dog related items available. Oh yeah, and they're backed by our 90 Day Chew Proof Guarantee!


ripstop tuff cover for dog beds

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 dog bed

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.

double stitched seam dog bed

Reinforced Seams

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.

double stitched seam dog 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!

water resistant dog bed

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!

machine washable dog beds

Machine Washable

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!

odor resistant dog bed

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.

odor resistant dog bed

Hypoallergenic Material

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!

    • The only crate pad that’s survived over a week!
      Review by Emily on 5/14/2019
      I’m impressed. This is very, very well made. Bought this for an adult Malinois before going to a cot style bed. I filled it with 2” memory foam I had from an old mattress topper. It’s perfect and so far survived without a puncture, which surprises me. Any soft bed/mat can be destroyed with enough time/effort but so far I think the material is really doing its job and while I’ve seen her grab it a bit and try to shred, it seems as though it’s not fun/rewarding and she gives up quickly. And since there’s a guarantee and I have other dogs who would use the replacement cover, I’m totally satisfied and impressed with this purchase.
    • The wear and tear capabilities of the cover are great. The ability to withstand the power of a chewing German Shepard, not so great.
      Review by Jason on 4/19/2019
      10 month old German Shepard ate through the cover the first night I put it on. This cover was a replacement for the original cover/mattress he chewed through. Shame on me for wasting the money on the second one thinking he wouldn't chew through another.
    • Fits my heated pad
      Review by Linda on 2/26/2019
      fits perfectly on my dog's heated pad. This is my second crate cover (I have 2 heated pads). The first one doesn't have the soft side, my dog likes the soft sided one better. I wish the opening was closer to the end of the pad to accommodate the the cord better but the Velcro closure works great
    • Just the cover I’ve been waiting for!
      Review by Judith on 1/13/2019
      So far so good. The cover is tough, no doubt out it. I love that the zipper is offset with a tough Velcro cover over the zipper. Love love love that I can easily zip tie the bed to the crate! Total game changer. I got my cover fast too!
    • Great cover needs a couple of tweaks
      Review by Dina on 12/14/2018
      The cover itself is fantastic. The placement of the logo is not. Within minutes, my dog had the logo patch hanging, which I then removed. Next he went after the Anchour Point™ tie-downs, which are small enough to not be truly functional anyway. Finally, the double enclosure (zipper & velcro) are great, but why right in the middle? Put it on the side where it's less tempting. My little guy hasn't gotten thru it yet, but not for a lack of trying.
    • Great product - withstands puppy chewing
      Review by Evelyn on 11/16/2018
      This a great product. It is withstanding the onslaught of the chewing monster - 4 month old Catahoula pup. I think he has given up trying! I am using this to cover his bed heater. He totally destroyed the original cover.
    • I will never use another company for my Shepherd.
      Review by Debby on 11/10/2017
      My Shepherd hasn’t tore this cover yet. I think the idea of using the old and new cover is a great one.
      When her first new bed came and you improved it with the ties was great!
    • I like it!!!!
      Review by Tommy on 8/17/2017
      My pup went nuts and tore a corner- contacted k9ballistics and I had a new one within days. No problem after initial pup attack..
    • Best product found! My Shepherd loves this bed.
      Review by Deborah on 8/16/2017
      I was sad to see she had finally chewed the corner of the crate pad. It took close to three months and it did take her a few days to damage it. When I removed it she would bark for a while before she would finally go to sleep. I was really surprised it took that long. The replacement has been wonderful and she gave it a good effort but was and is unable to chew the least little hole in it. This bed is well with the money and the warranty was easy to submit. I had a new bed in a very short time and was contacted several times on the status of the new bed.
      I will not be using any other company! They do care about your fur baby after they ship you their product. I give the product and the company the highest rating possible. Do your pet a favor and get this bed. My Shepherd doesn't even have the rough elbows I have seen on others and I know this bed has helped so much. Oh and once I put the new bed in her kennel she stopped barking when I put her to bed.
    • good product
      Review by Debbie on 5/31/2017
      Wasn't sure about the Velcro closure on the bottom. She hasn't found it yet so we will have to see later, but nice product and we have put the damaged crate pad inside so hoping this one will last us.
    • second go around
      Review by Skip on 5/25/2017
      So far so good on the second round. We'll keep our fingers crossed our 1 yr. 4 month 50 lb boxer doesn't start tearing it up..
    • Not as tuff as my GSD puppy..........
      Review by Linda C. on 4/13/2017
      Purchased the small crate pad for an enclosed crate as it fits almost perfectly in the floor of a large crate. Took my 4 mo old GSD about a month to figure out he could chew the corner off the cover into the mattress. Removed the pad and sent pictures of the damage . Received new cover after waiting approx 3 weeks bc the first one was lost by FedX. Took him about 1 night to start chewing this one up even with bitter apple. We put it over the old cover so he has not made it through to the mattress again, yet. He has his adult teeth now so .... Unfortunately I can not attach the pad since it is in a solid plastic crate.

    • Excellent customer service
      Review by Brenda on 3/21/2017
      I ordered a mattress and cover my elderly 120lb boy to see how it went and it was so good and he loves it so I ordered another for my sometimes destructive little pittie. The second one came with tie downs and reinforced corners and has been a huge success. I rang K9 to ask about the corners and tiedowns as the first one ordered just 2 weeks earlier didn't have them and they immediately offered to send me one of the newer ones and said I could keep them all. I would absolutely recommend the mattress, covers and the company.
    • Amazing new improvement
      Review by Kristin on 3/5/2017
      My Belgian Malinois puppy has chewed through 3 rip stop crate pad covers. This new design attaching the pad to the crate has made all the difference. She can't pull it up to get the right angle she likes for chewing! We're hoping to have this pad for a long time to come.
    • Great customer service!
      Review by Jen on 3/1/2017
      Our 120 pound mastiff puppy loves his new bed! He was able to chew a hole in the corner of the cover, but a replacement cover was immediately sent. After putting the new cover directly on top of the old one, per their suggestion, so far so good! Also easy to wash, which is a plus.
    • Love replacement pen mattress.
      Review by Andrea on 3/1/2017
      My puppy chewed a hole through the first one in 3 days. We received our replacement that had tie downs and now she cant get her teeth on anything to bite. Wonder! Its been a few weeks and no damage.
    • Update on 2 goldens who chew up everything
      Review by JACQUELINE on 1/16/2017
      I ordered two more covers. With using the tie downs and bitter apple spray on the corners, the covers are still intact, They have washed up nicely even the one with the chewed corner. Did not unravel or enlarge the hole by washing. Both my dogs are also aggressive diggers. The cover does resist digging.
      I recommend using the tie downs and getting a bottle of bitter apple spray to apply to points where your dog typically chews. Buy yourself a package of tie downs at a hardware supply store. Still, the only thing I have found that my dogs cannot completely destroy.
    • Excellent pad cover
      Review by Elizabeth on 12/11/2016
      Very happy with this pad cover. It's durable, cleanable and made well. I would recommend this product and purchase it again.
    • Looks like an excellent product
      Review by Mary on 11/10/2016
      This seems to be an excellent bed. However, my dog happens to be a dynamic chewer. I won't be putting this bed back into service until he (hopefully) stops chewing the things he shouldn't. Thank you.
    • held up PERFECTLY!
      Review by Candy on 10/26/2016
      I am writing in response to your request for feedback regarding your Rip Stop Crate Cover. I own a dog walking company, and am involved with rescue. I have THREE pit bulls and they have held up PERFECTLY! Talullah Bankhead is 11 years old, and this is the FIRST bed she has not destroyed. I am actually re painting the room to match the color of the beds. It has stood up against: projectile vomit, cat pee, scratching, digging and chewing.I also have a dog with hip displasia and this is the only bed he likes. I will order more in the future, and will tell ALL my clients about you!
    • Fantastic product and great company that stands behind thier products!
      Review by Klari on 10/21/2016
      My 6 month old Border Collie puppy chewed the corner of the ripstop crate pad cover, but K9 not only replaced it, but sent three! I did originally buy three crate beds, but had not expected such a generous replacement. They advised putting the new cover over the old. So far we are doing fine. I don't know whether he is just outgrowing that chew phase, but in any event K9 stands behind its products and goes above and beyond expectations. I highly recommend this product and especially K9 Ballistics...and no I don't work for them!
    • IT WORKED!!
      Review by Patti on 5/20/2016
      I have one of those dogs who destroy every bed. She chewed the corners out of her Tuff Velvet bed in about a month. K9 Ballistics stood behind their warranty and replaced it with the Tuff cover. So far, my dog has not beaten this bed! No holes and wearing very well!! :-) well worth the money.
    • True to their word
      Review by jeanne on 5/18/2016
      My little destroyer was true to her nickname and before too long had managed to tear a dollar sized hole in her bed. True to their word, K9 replaced the bed for us. They recommended that we either spray the bed with repellent or soak in vinegar water. We soaked the bed in the vinegar water and allowed it to dry. She has not attempted to nibble any holes. Thank you K9!
    • Good mat!
      Review by Linda on 5/16/2016
      My Akita has a bad habit of digging into beds, even with a thin mat on top, to make a "nest." Not always, but I've had to have four bed covers mended. She's left this one alone. I appreciate its sturdiness and ease of opening. Many thanks!
    • Ripstop Crate pad cover
      Review by mike haley on 5/6/2016
      It took my 10 month old, Bull Mastiff Mix, all of 4-5 days to tear the corner open. K-9 sent me a replacement cover asap but I'm afraid to put it on for fear he will do it again. Maybe i need an iron bed?
      I'm open to any suggestions.
    • always does the trick
      Review by Margaret on 4/29/2016
      I have used K9 beds and covers for all my dogs, and I have had some real chewers! Now I have 2 Desi dog brothers and they really destroy every bed ever ('digging' leads to tearing and tearing leads to chewing and that leads to shredding filling for the sheer fun of it). Plus I have had a hard time washing other 'cheaper' brands of dog beds - they just dont get clean or dry right...and they fall apart.... Long story short, I bought 2 K9 crate pads and covers, and 2 spare covers, which I actually filled with old bed pillows, so I have something to swap out when I wash the crate pads. And it's been ZERO problems! They 'dig' the K9 bed before laying down, but these beds are really TOUGH. Not a single problem. I am so pleased with the quality every time, I don't know why I waited so long to get them for these dogs. I'm annoyed with myself for wasting money on 'cheaper' beds only to have to buy a new one every 3 months. Also - customer service was FANTASTIC. My order was actually wrong the first time, and they sent me the corrected order IMMEDIATELY.
    • Great Product
      Review by Cory on 4/27/2016
      Our dog is a chewer and has not chewed through this. He LOVES it. We actually ordered a second one for the car! I had one issue with manufacturing and they sent me a new one out at no charge. I had the replacement in about a week. Amazing product! Amazing company!
    • Not sure it's worth it.
      Review by Jack on 3/22/2016
      I had this bed one night and my dog torn it up. And then I ordered the warrantied cover, and so far it's been a month with no cover. So he has literally destroyed the pad also now. When I do get the cover, I have nothing to put inside it. And they won't cover the pad even though they have taken a month so far to replace it. So I paid $150 for nothing at all. Meanwhile, my other dog who is dying, has almost nothing left to lay on. Very upset.
    • Honest company
      Review by Kathleen on 2/20/2016
      My 6 month old puppy completely tore up every bed we got. I had just about given up having a pad in his crate at all. Decided to try K9 Ballistics because it not only sounded like it might do the trick, but they promised to replace it if it didn't. Well, my pup did manage to chew a small hole in the corner of the cover but at least he didn't completely tear it to pieces like every previous attempt. I contacted the company and they sent a replacement cover which they suggested placing over the 1st one. Success! It's been over a month and, other than covered in fur, looks just like new. A great product and a great company.
    • Best Crate Mat Available
      Review by Valerie on 2/8/2016
      My dog has destroyed everything from blankets to mats and an actual Orvis dog bed! I purchased the Memory foam crate mat with the ripstop cover and the first day, he chewed the corner of the mat. K-9 Ballistics replaced the cover promptly and we have had no issues since. I followed the recommendation to place the new cover over the first cover and it has been two weeks and no attempts to chew his mat. This is all I will ever buy for this terrier mix boy!
    • Heavy chewers
      Review by jimmy on 2/4/2016
      My yellow lab is quite the chewer. She destroys most of her toys and has destroyed her crate pads with no problem. This K9 crate pad is amazing. It took months but but lab chewed a hole in the corner of the pad cover and there customer service was great at sending out a new one. I highly recommend these pads and this company.
    • Best of all Covers
      Review by Kathleen M on 2/2/2016
      This is the best product on the market. Also,
      Excellent customer service. My Male Border Collie chewed a hole in the corner and K9 sent me a new cover with suggestions of what to spray it with. Apple Bitter works amazing. They also sent me my replacement for free. I recommend this product even to Dog Parents that don't have Dogs that chew. They are amazing!
      Thank you

    • Great Product & Support
      Review by ANDRE on 1/24/2016
      Our 14 month old GSD has been extremely tough on crate pads. Most didn't even last one day. When we saw the ad for the K9 pads with their warranty, we decided to give them a try. Much to our surprise, Cody didn't seem interested in chewing on this cover. This was the case for 6 weeks until we had to leave him in his crate for longer than usual one day. When we came home, he had flipped the pad over and chewed a small hole near the Velcro closure. I contacted the company and they promptly sent us a new cover with instructions on how to put it on to minimize the chances that he would chew through it again. Great product and customer support. Well worth the cost.
    • Great customer support
      Review by michael on 1/23/2016
      My dogs ripped up the cover in the first day, so they sent me two new cover and a new foam pad and told me to double wrap the cover and that did the trick with some other helpful tips.

      Thanks k9!!!
    • Replacement cover
      Review by Brenda on 1/19/2016
      This is the greatest product and when I had a problem with my healer tearing thru the cover I was sent another one immediately plus what to do . This is my second one for my Springer also who did great with it. This product is the best and customer service is awesome
    • Outstanding Customer Service
      Review by Katy on 1/15/2016
      I rarely take time to write reviews but when I do it is for amazing customer service and this company definitely fits the bill! I ordered a crate pad with embroidery and of course my furry baby decided that was where she would start her plan of attack. The cover held up but the embroidery did not. I contacted the customer service department and they promptly ordered a replacement cover. Unfortunately when I received the replacement they forgot to add the embroidery...no worries because they corrected their mistake and sent me the new one right away. When I received the new cover there were also suggestions that will help preserve the embroidery and the pad itself. I will stick with this company for all my future needs and definitely recommend to all of my friends.
    • Great product
      Review by Ann on 1/13/2016
      The cover is strong and durable. However my daughter's boxer got inside and ripped apart the orthopedic pad. : (
    • Amazing Customer Service
      Review by Kelly on 1/4/2016
      I love this crate pad and, more importantly, Maverick loves it too. He decided he needed to eat a small section of the corner of our first cover, but when K9 Ballistics found out about it, they immediately sent him a new cover with several suggestions about how to keep Maverick's second cover intact. Maverick and I read through the instructions together and came to an agreement about how the new cover should be treated. He has not chewed this new one at all. Thank you K9 Ballistics! Yours is the type of company our family is happy to support and recommend to friends.
    • 4 Paws Up
      Review by Mel on 1/4/2016
      My dog is a chewer and flipped the cover over to get to the velcro and tear at the pad. K9 Ballistics was awesome at sending me a replacement to cover over the old one with the velcro facing the opposite direction as well as giving me great advice on how to prevent chewing although not necessary because the replacement cover recommendation did the trick. Thank you K9 Ballistics and I look forward to another purchase from you in the future!
    • Replacement Cover
      Review by Michael L on 12/10/2015
      K9 did exactly as they stated on the replacement of the cover. I would deal/buy from them again with no hesitation. Great American Company.

    • Great quality
      Review by susanne on 11/26/2015
      My dog managed to get a couple of holes in his first cover but it didn't rip open and he wasn't able to get to the pad. K9 sent a replacement immediately and so far no incidents. I had to take my chances and wash the foam pad after a throw up incident, although they say you should not wash the pad, it held up, just took a few days to dry. Most durable pad I've owned and I've gone through several over the past 13 years with my "destructive " dog
    • Tough Product
      Review by Michael on 11/11/2015
      I think my dog has finally given up on chewing her bed to pieces. (knock on wood) She ripped the first liner, but they sent me a new one right away to put over it. So far, so good. Thanks!
    • Simply the Best
      Review by Mamo M. on 10/31/2015
      I have the pad cover and beds in the past as well. The products and customer service of this company is simply the best!!! Unbelievable customer service if there is defect in the first 90 day...no question asked. The material is also strong to stand those puppy chews. 5 star is the minimum a give for k9 ballistics.
    • 2 Dew Claws Up
      Review by Elizabeth on 10/1/2015
      My pup quickly learned how to flip the bed over in her crate and chew at the Velcro. However, K9 Ballistics responded quickly to my warranty submission and sent out a new cover. They recommended placing the new cover over the old, with the Velcro of each on opposite sides. So far, she hasn't flipped over the bed since the new cover was put on.
    • Excellent!
      Review by PATRICIA on 9/11/2015
      I bought 2 beds for my previous lab (Original Tuff & then Orthopedic) and our previous lab loved them both. I love that they make their beds for large dogs at a reasonable price. I love the crate pad because it fits the crate, looks good (green), and resists dirt and water. Easy to wipe clean. This little lab learned she could bend the pad over & chew : ( K9 was true to their word and shipped a replacement. I thank them for the replacement and will continue to shop with and recommend them.
    • An Honest Review from a Happy Customer
      Review by Amanda on 9/5/2015
      I want K9 Ballistics to know how much I truly appreciate their business. K9 Ballistics is a company that offers a high quality product and goes out of their way to assure customer satisfaction. This company stands behind their product with an amazing warranty. The bed we purchased is for our sweet and enthusiastic chewer Mia, a 10 month pit mix. After Mia destroyed two blankets, 10 towels, the plastic bottom of her crate, and then finally started on the crate itself, I knew I had to find a comfortable, tough, and safe solution. She had lots of safe chew toys to keep her entertained and I had even made her a crate cover so her space would feel more "den-like" which were all suggestions from trainers and online. However, once she makes a hole in something she decides it is her personal mission to destroy the object. After some online research, I found the K9 Ballistics site and placed my order. The bed was perfect, everything we wanted! Mia was so happy and did not chew her bed for 85 days. We made the mistake of not buying the bitter spray...a treat slipped under the mat and once she found the treat flavored Velcro, Mia had to chew it. I sent the pictures via Email to claim the Warrenty. I wish all companies were this customer friendly, not only did K9 Ballistics send another cover, they sent an Email with tips for success on the new cover (like the bitter spray) and let me know how much they appreciated my business. I will always be a loyal K9 Ballistics customer and will highly recommended them to all pup parents. Thank you K9 Ballistics! Note: if you are reading this review to consider purchasing the crate mat/cover (as I read other reviews), this is a great purchase. You won't find a lot of companies that make a quality product like this one and then offer a warranty to ensure customer satisfaction. And if you have a voracious chewer who chews through boots, bones, antlers, rocks, tree stumps, baseboards, etc...be realistic. This is a fantastic bed, better than anything I've seen on the market. It will hold up when nothing else will. Unfortunately, if your dog eats all of the objects listed above, he/she has the potential to chew a hole in the bed. So my advice, buy K9 Ballistics and get the bitters spray. You'll save money in the long run and have a quality product you can feel good about giving your pup.
    • Multiple Covers
      Review by Debi R. on 8/25/2015
      We swear by the Ripstop pad covers! We have purchased two now. The first we purchased a year ago for a foxhound mix that shredded all previous crate pads in a matter of minutes. This one is still going strong, with no holes whatsoever. Thus, we purchased a second one for our seven-month old border collie. These are the only covers we'll purchase now!
    • So far so good on the cover. Our puppy is a big time chewer.
      Review by Shree on 5/20/2015
      I am hoping that the K9 ballistics cover will hold good for a long time. I have washed the cover and have used it for a month now, and it is holding up very well.
    • excellent product
      Review by GKMD on 5/18/2015
      Not totally chew proof but close. Velcro closure seems to be a problem but K9 is happy to work with customer to resolve any issues that occur. Would I buy again...YES and would I recommend to other dog owners...YES.
    • NOT "chew proof"

      The Ripstop Crate Pad Cover is NOT chew proof. My 8 month old whippet destroy the cover within 3 days of receiving this product. K9 offers a free replacement cover which I received. This new cover only took 2 days to become destroyed. So within a week, my puppy went through 2 of their "chew proof" beds. I asked for a 50% refund, but since I received a replacement cover, they only offer one or the other. I will not be purchasing from this site again.

      Review by Dorian on 4/3/2015
      The bed is made of very durable material. We have a German Shepherd and she tore every bed we bought to pieces. I love that the cover can be removed and washed. The orthopedic padding inside is thick enough to give a large dog support. Our shepherd had an inflamed elbow and after a few weeks of using the bed we saw the swelling reduce drasticlly and eventually went away completely.

      Our shepherd did eventually rip through the covering, but K9 Ballastic immediately rushed a new cover out for us within days. The warranty process was extremely simple and effort less. We are very pleased with the quality and customer service we received. I highly recommend this product to anyone.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What 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 memory foam?

    Memory foam is designed to immediately conform to your body and relieve pressure. Its great for puppies to help prevent future problems or older dogs that may be suffering form ailments like hip dysplasia. Memory foam quality is measured in pounds per square foot, the heavier the foam the higher the mattress quality. Our memory foam density is rated at 4.5 lbs / sq. ft.

    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 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!

    Why do you cover your memory foam with a waterproof cover?

    Waterproof inner covers are designed to protect the integrity of the foam inside. They help as a first barrier of defense against moisture. Moisture that may come from a wet dog, humid conditions, puppy accidents, or an older dog that may be incontinent.
