    Best dog bed I have ever purchased. I have had many dogs over the past 40+ years and have purchased a variety of dog beds. The K9 Ballistics orthopedic bed is amazing, highly recommend if you have senior pets.

  • I am happy with this bed. Review by Sahara (Posted on 8/24/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I got this bed for a friend's dog and helped her put it together. It is a little pricier than what I would normally get for a bed but I think it looks very nice, much better than the beds I've seen at Petco. Definitely well made. The velvet is definitely soft, although not as soft or fluffy as sherpa. But it is still good, and maybe even better because the dog peed on this bed several times but we were able to catch it quickly and could rinse it right off. I think it could have soaked through to the liner if left to sit, but it held it off better than a normal cloth would. The dog is not a big chewer but he has mouthed around the bolster part and has not done any damage, and I don't think he will be able to. I think this one will last.

  • Nice Bed Review by Unsatisfied (Posted on 6/22/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Purchased a large bed for my pit lab mix to replace a bed that she is destroying with her nesting at night. The bed shipped quickly, unrolled easily and was fairly easy to put together (putting the bolster in resulted in some work). She loves bolsters beds and the first few nights she slept great but one week after purchasing it she started sleeping in the living room on her old bed that she is destroying.

    Contacted customer service and got told to purchase a new mattress for 10% off. Considering how much these beds are originally, the covers and mattresses are too expensive to replace one week after the initial purchase. Couple that with the zero return policy once its been opened, I'll look at putting an egg crate on top or selling this bed on Craigslist if she doesn't start sleeping on it.

    Overall these are good quality beds (she loves her orthopedic crate pad and hasn't destroyed it - yet) but hope that your dog accepts its new investment or you'll be stuck. Customer service was quick to respond with their suggestion to purchase more from them.
  • Velvet not durable Review by Diane (Posted on 5/23/2016)

    Very nice bed, but one of my dogs has already chewed some of the velvet covering off. I hope that's the extent of the damage he will be able to do. Time will tell.

    The quality is excellent! Well made and my dog loves it . I especially like that you can wipe it down and you do not have to out in the washer. Also its much nicer looking that it appears on the website I never post a review but this dog bed is a find after going through several in every price range!
  • Got the dog off my bed! Review by Cale (Posted on 2/23/2016)
    Overall Quality
    We purchased the large bed for my 2 year old beagle who had been sleeping with us and it was time to rectify that situation. She immediately took to the bed. The bed is very nice and soft, yet very durable. I could have gotten away with the medium size, but I wanted to give her room to move around. She sleeps all night in the bed and is difficult to pry out of it in the mornings. Great product, very happy. Well worth the money.

  • Excellent Review by Jennifer (Posted on 2/19/2016)
    Overall Quality
    This is the perfect bed for our 9 month old Cane Corso mastiff, 100 lbs and gaining. The raised edge give him something to lean against and cuddle. The material over the mattress is soft for the dog, but sturdy enough to withstand the vacuum cleaner without sucking into the rollers. Also, it looks good in the family room. Very happy with this purchase.
  • Great bed, but velvet isn't for chewers Review by Anna (Posted on 2/17/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I gave want to preface that I'm giving the velvet bed cover 3 stars, but the orthopedic bolstered dog bed and the original ripstop material cover would earn 5 stars.
    I ordered this bed in pumice stone/lattice for my beagle mix puppy (she'll be one year old this spring). She's a chewer/head shaker/digger and she has demolished every dog bed we've ever bought. I read through the reviews here and I was convinced! Plus the customer service at K9Ballistics has been amazing. The bed arrived and it was very pretty, fitting in with our decor quite nicely. The large size was great for Daisy too. But within a week, she shook the bed or tried to drag it into different parts of the house, and a small hole had already started on the velvet material. Next she was able to unzip the bolster zipper. So I removed the pillow before she could do any further damage to the stuffing.
    Then she started on another hole near the seam.
    I emailed K9 and they immediately shipped out a replacement cover. I chose the original ripstop material (which I should have gone with in the beginning!) in tan. She's had this one for a week and hasn't tried to dig on it or chew it. She curls right up on it, although I'm sure it's not as comfy as the velvet.
    If you have a chewer, definitely go with the ripstop material. It is much more durable than the velvet option (although the velvet is lovely!)
    It was worth the money and customer service has been great. Hopefully we have a winner!

    Our 1year old lab had gone through 3 beds and 2 plastic crate liners. So far the bed has held up to his destructive attempts. He loves it too, impossible to get him up if he's sleeping.

    Bella(my American Bulldog) lives her bed! I have to bang pots and pans to get her out of it in the morning,lol! When I ordered her bed my only options were XL and Medium. This bed is huge, but it's okay because Bella lives it, the memory foam is amazing, I can lay in it and it doesn't sink, the bed is well constructed, and your customer service is outstanding!

    I bought this bed for my Australian Cattle Dog, Sugar, who will be 14 this year and she loves her bed. She started to roll around and play in her bed the moment she realized it was hers. Overall quality is beyond than I expected, well worth the price and I even took a nap with my pup. I never felt the floor and was so comfy. I now see why my pup, loves lounging on it. Thank you for such a wonderful product and for letting me spoil my girl in her golden years.

    This is a quality dog bed. My Lab is 12 and this bed seems very comfortable for him. Also have a Schnoodle that likes to dig in the bed and not a mark on it. I recomend this product.
  • Worth every penny!!! Review by Laura (Posted on 12/30/2015)
    Overall Quality
    We have a 13 year old Rottweiler/Bulldog cross who loves nothing more than to destroy blankets, pillows, mats, and dog beds. Even in his old age, he is still enjoying this game. I've been wanting a bed so he can be more comfortable as he continues to age, and it looks like I found it. We've had the bed just over two weeks and there's barely a mark on it, and believe me, he tried to tear it up! Until now, nothing else has held up more than a couple of days but it looks like this one is going to last! Just as importantly, the bed is so comfortable he's always on it! I can't thank you enough for finding a solution that is not only extremely durable, but exceptionally comfortable, too!
  • recomemd! Review by Whitney (Posted on 12/1/2015)
    Overall Quality
    Quality product! Wonderful company to work with. No problem enacting warranty when 19 month old Pit/Great Dane mix ate his little sister's bed. Liked the product and company so much ordered another, larger bed. If the larger bed survives 19 month old, will order two more beds. Unfortunately even the toughest of materials and quality workmanship are no match for my troublesome puppy.



Luxurious Quality. No Compromises.

It's finally here! The dog bed that combines all soft quality of LUX Series dog beds with the toughness and durability of our TUFF Series dog beds.

This bed is covered by the 90 Day Chew Proof Guarantee against any dog-inflicted damage. The bed is also one of the most comfortable surfaces your dog will ever sleep on.

“How did you guys come up with this perfect dog bed?”

We're glad you asked! The idea for this bed came years after we had designed the first TUFF Dog Beds. A few customers mentioned that the TUFF beds were noisy, which kept them up at night when their dogs would rustle the bed. Later we designed the LUX Series Dog Beds, which were oh so comfortable and completely silent. Unfortunately the LUX beds aren't chew proof!

For several years there was no in-between zone of both luxury and intense durability. One day our owner, Sean, decided to experiment with new materials. He took the Faux (fake) fur of the LUX beds and bonded it directly to the TUFF material. This created a hybrid material that was soft, silent, and extremely durable. We like to call it TUFF Velvet™.

This bed features two separate materials to make up its unique look. The TUFF Velvet makes up the sleeping surface of the bed, offering a quiet and soft lounge for your dog. The base features our proprietary Ripstop Ballistic TUFF Bed material, with an elegant lattice print design. Ripstop Ballistic material has proven to stop most chewing dogs from shredding dog beds, and has served our customers faithfully for many years. Unlike our other TUFF Velvet beds, the bolster bed features two zippers: one along the back of the bolster and one along the underside of the mattress. 

The Microfiber Synthetic Fur on the TUFF Velvet makes the sleeping surface cozy for your dog, and quiet as well. Dogs who are easily spooked by sudden crinkle noises can fall into this bed and completely relax.

This is the most advanced dog bed we've ever created, and we think your dogs will absolutely love it!


Chew Proof Rating


Light Chewers & Scratchers

Built K9 Tough, resisting many 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.
Size Guide
  We recommend measuring your dog and comparing it to the dimensions of our beds to ensure the perfect size; every dog is unique. Measure your dog with a tape measure from the tip of their nose to the base of their tail. This is the minimum length you should consider for your pup's bed.

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!)

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.

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.

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!

High Density Memory Foam

Our orthopedic mattresses are made with two layers of foam: the top 1.5" layer of high quality memory foam, and the bottom 3.5" layer of support foam. Our memory foam has a 4.5 lb / sq. ft. density rating.

Other beds which don't use the bottom support layer often settle too quickly and your dog can end up lying on the floor. This negates the benefit of the orthopedic foam! We just couldn't settle for that. We decided to include firm joint support in the base layer and supple comfort in the top layer of memory foam.

Water Resistant Nylon Mattress Liner

The foam mattress is protected by a water resistant nylon cover which keeps the sensitive foam dry and odor free. If you've ever met a dog with incontinence problems then you understand how this extra layer of moisture resistance can be vital.

Joint Support for Large Breeds or Aging Pets

Large dogs often experience joint problems more frequently than smaller dogs, due to their increased size and weight. It isn't fair, but pet owners can proactively fight joint problems with orthopedic pet furniture such as our memory foam dog bed.

Our orthopedic beds can prevent joint problems, ease joint pain that's already begun, or just plain spoil your canine companion.


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 "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!


Our Guarantee for the Orthopedic TUFF Bed

If your dog chews through the cover, 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 90 days from the day that K9 Ballistics shipped out your purchase.

If you notice any damage of our product resulting from chewing or scratching, we recommend immediately removing the bed from your dog's access. Some dogs like to eat their bedding, so for your animals' health we recommend waiting to reintroduce the bed when the replacement cover arrives and/or when the dog grows out of the chewing phase.

How to Process a warranty Claim

What we need to process a warranty is:
1. An email sent by the person who placed the order (usually you) with your name and address
2. A photo of the damage (you can also include a photo of the culprit if you like). You do not need to send us your bed or cover.

Send email with pictures to [email protected]. It usually takes us five to seven business days to get back to you.

Warranty can be enacted just once. If you do not wish to enact your warranty, we can refund you 50% of the cost of the item provided that a picture of the damage is sent to us.
