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!)
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.
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!

Excellent Product.After 4 years the old fabric has sagged due to constant use, being left outside and being scrubbed clean but has held up nonetheless. I'm sure the new fabric will last as long. I recommend keeping a couple of spare fabric on hand.
Like the cover priceI gave it a 4 just because it is really hard to replace the material. The last corner needs 2 strong people to pull it tight and get it screwed on. Otherwise we like the bed and have gone thru a couple covers. It would be nice if there was a way to able to double the cover with the one that didn't hold up to the chew to make it tougher.
Not chew-proof, but the next best thingMy 8-year-old Weimaraner thinks it's cute when a company tries to call it's product "chew proof" and does her best to be in that 0.5% who ruin that claim.
This is our 3rd Cujo Cot in about a year and a half - that being said, I still rate this at 5 stars. Other beds don't last a day. I bought the first two beds on Amazon, but bought the 3rd directly from K9 when I heard about their guarantee.
This company is great. When she managed to rip through the material, I sent a picture in and they gave me two replacement materials. I thought this was smart because the frame was perfectly fine and I love that I have a spare!
I sprayed the new material liberally with bitter spray before installing it and so far, she hasn't managed any damage.
K9 has excellent customer service and their products are very well-made. I just have an abnormally strange dog.
Overall QualityWe have a 2-year old, 120 Lb. Doberman. We bought the bed in October, 2015. We were thrilled that he did not immediately destroy it as he has with all previous beds! In March, 2016 we had to replace the Ballistic material as he scratches it before he lays down and eventually made a hole in it. We also had to replace a leg and corner from the screw being stripped from getting caught under the kennel pan. We were sent all 4 legs and corners and replacement fabric at no charge. Recently, September, 2016 the stitching on the underside of the fabric came apart. Once again, the fabric was replaced at no charge due to a defect in the sewing. Because K9 Ballistics has been so cooperative and pleasant to work with, I purchased an additional Ballistic fabric to keep for future events! So far, the bed has held up for 5-6 months. I would definitely recommend this bed. Helps take the pressure off joints for the bigger, heavier dogs. The best buy for the money!
Much better than most.We purchased the Cujo Cot last November 2015. It has held up until now March 2016. We have a 145 Lb. Doberman puppy. He has destroyed every other bed within minutes! The Cujo Cot has lasted 5 months. He seems to scratch it before laying down and this is what caused it to fail. I just received the replacement fabric and also had to have a leg replaced due to the screw being stripped. I don't know how this happened unless it (the bed) got caught under the kennel pan. However, I would recommend this bed for anyone with a dog that destroys beds...5 months is much better than 5 minutes!
No chew but scratch thruMy English Setter has chewed up every bed but this one. However, she does the dog thing of scratching her bed to make it perfect before laying down and has scratched a hole in it (now about 4" round) after about 4 months of use.
I haven't installed the new mat material yet...I"ll let her sleep on her old bed until the hole gets big enough that she starts to fall thru....
Cujo Cot MaterialThe Bed is Great and the material as well.
After working out a plan for our baby to sleep on the cot--he now appreciates it very much--and so do we!
So Far So GoodThe cot is holding up better than his bed cover. Recommend the cot for indoors and outdoors. Nice place for them to chill and relax. We use it for our dog to "go to his place" when he needs to stay or calm down. It works great!
A good bed for a chewy dogMy dog is a beagle mix and at almost 2 years, he still chews. When he goes to sleep each night he does some ritual scratching and then goes to sleep. The material is tough, and it usually lasts for us about 3 months. The replacement material comes and it is difficult to put together (very tight fit) but now that I have done it three times. It is doable!
Great so far!I am very cautious this time with my fur-baby! As soon as I hear him scratch, I take it out of his crate! I want the ZEN Master to appreciate what he has!
Keep you posted on our progress.
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 an elevated bed?
Also called a “Cot Bed”, these beds are designed to keep your dog off the ground. Ours was built by our engineers from the ground up. It has an extremely sturdy, light weight, anodized aluminum alloy frame. The bed portion consists of a stretched fabric center which gives support and allows airflow. They are the perfect height for easy on and off. Really easy to clean.
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 120 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 120 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! Simply take the bed outside and hose it down, or rinse it off with a shower faucet. Wipe or scrub with a cloth and mild detergent to remove any unpleasant odors. Allow it to air dry and it'll be good as new!
Is there any kind of assembly required for the Cujo Cot?
This bed does require minimal assembly. The aluminum frame and center material sling are pre-assembled, all you need to do is screw the legs into the corners of the bed!
