  • Love this crate pad. Review by Stella (Posted on 12/13/2017)
    Overall Quality
    It's two weeks since my Golden has been sleeping on this crate pad. She's an aggressive chewers and a digger. At 8 months Shea has not only destroyed many of her own beds and crate pads but her two smaller breed siblings beds as well. For some reason she doesn't even try with this one. You can easily wipe it down and even tie it down. I was hesitant to spend the money, but glad I did.
  • This crate pad + Cujo Cot = Success Review by Callie (Posted on 10/19/2017)
    Overall Quality
    Well, it’s been almost a month, and this cozy crate pad is still intact. Gem has chewed up all of her beds, all of her crate pads, her Tuff Bed covers, my couch, and some of her siblings’ beds. Eight months ago I bought her a Cujo Cot, and that has worked out beautifully. Last month a discount code convinced me to add the orthopedic Tuff Velvet crate pad. So far this seems to be the answer I spent six years searching for! When I leave during the day she gets just her Cujo Cot. Then when she’s tired at night and there’s no stimulation to get her anxious, she gets the warm, soft velvet pad on top of the Cujo Cot. Fingers crossed this combo continues to hold up through the coming winter...
  • Well done and worth the price Review by Greg (Posted on 10/21/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Once I ordered the correct size to fit in his crate (which was handled without any problems), my Golden has really enjoyed it. In the past I just had a mat in the kennel and he would move it and I thought he might just prefer lying on the plastic liner. Since I have put in this pad, he hasn't tried to move it at all, and even goes in and lays on it when we are just staying at home.

    I had wished it was a bit thicker, but he doesn't seem to mind at all.
  • No more sleepless nights! Review by Evelyn (Posted on 7/27/2016)
    Overall Quality
    I ordered the orthopedic tuff velvet pad for my puppy's night-time crate because he chewed through all the other beds I'd tried and when I put towels in his crate, he would manage to drag them around until the plastic bottom of the crate was exposed. The sound of his toenails on the hard plastic would wake me up. He would then continue to scratch around trying to get comfortable. Since he got his orthopedic bed 6 weeks ago, he has not had a single restless night and he has not chewed the cover like he had done with other pads. He and I can both sleep in peace now. Thank you K9 Ballistics for making such a remarkable product!
  • Happy Springer, Strong Bed Review by Cooper's Review (Posted on 6/19/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Our 5 month old springer spaniel is somewhat of a tornado with teeth. Not much stands up to him once he has set his sites on it. All previous bedding has turned into a cloud of stuffing within days. This bed has been a pleasant surprise. It fits perfectly in the crate and seems supple enough for him. At this point, he has not actually tried to chew it. We are about three weeks in, so it's pretty impressive. Historically, he would not voluntarily go in his crate. Now, he goes in and lays down on his own. I believe he really likes this bed and seems to sleep better on it than anything else we have tried.

    The reason for the four stars instead of the 5. I had thought that the bed would be reversible. The velvety side is great. However, I thought we would try both. Unfortunately the seam is on the patterned side in the middle of the bed. So turning it over makes me nervous that he will chew. He seems happy. I am extremely pleased with it. Thank you!
  • So far so good Review by Greg (Posted on 6/14/2016)

    Beds are very well made. 2 inch pad seems adequate for my 65 pound dogs. Just washed - looked fine after cleaning. Happy with purchase

    It fits perfectly in my dogs crate and she loves it! Wish it was 4" instead of just 2". My seven year old Rottweiler definitely needs lots of support!
  • Very happy with the bed Review by Wendy (Posted on 3/17/2016)
    Overall Quality
    My dog loves his new bed and has not tried to chew it. He is 115lbs, so we wanted something that would last, not go flat and would be comfortable for him. If he had a choice, I think he would just stay in his bed. Sometimes when I try to get him to go outside, he just stares at me as if to say that I must be crazy to think that he's going to get up. We really are very happy with the bed. If I could pick one thing I would change, I think I would want it a little bit thicker. He does seem to love it though.
  • Good Customer Service Review by Allison (Posted on 3/15/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Our 11 month old Australian Shepherd loves her new bed. So much so that she chewed the corner off. K9 Ballistics replied to our warranty claim within one day and a new cover is on the way. Our other two K9 Ballistics beds are still in tact, and I have to give them credit for standing by their product.
  • Great Bed Review by Michael (Posted on 3/15/2016)

    I got a 7 month old Dachshador (Dachshund / Black Lab Mix) and he went through 2 bolster beds with in a month. Did some research and found K9 Ballistics!! You guys are a life savor! This bed is worth the money!! He loves it!! K9 Ballistics is my go to for Doggy comfort!!
  • Very happy Review by Judie D (Posted on 1/29/2016)
    Overall Quality
    Angle loves her bed! She is my 10 year old white Lab grand-puppy that I spoil as much as my grand kids. Angel, even being an older girl who knows better, still would chew up her beds and toys within days of getting them. Angel lives in Arizona and has a huge house to roam around in and a very large "open door kennel" that was just metal because she ate her last bed. I couldn't have Angel sleeping on the hard kennel, so I started checking out "chew proof beds" and found K9 Ballistics. What a great find that was. Everyone is happy - Angel especially and she has not even given one little thought to taking a bite out of her bed
  • They are everything as advertised! Review by Michael S (Posted on 1/27/2016)
    Overall Quality
    We have two Great Dane puppies, now 5 months old (sister and brother). They would shred steel if you gave them half an opportunity. They love their beds, if at times too much in the sense of clawing at them when feeling overly rambunctious. And, there is the occasional crate "accident"; the cover comes off like a dream, washes like new, and we are all set.
  • Well done K9 Ballistics Review by megan (Posted on 1/7/2016)
    Overall Quality
    We have two teenage/young adult Great Danes who love to eat/destroy their bedding. Previously we had just been using old comforters from Goodwill.
    The girls initially were pretty skeptical about their new crate bedding, as they avoided it for a few days.
    They now put themselves in their "home" frequently. I am so glad we opted for the Velvet top as I was concerned about the "crinkling", they love the soft bedding.
    It was well worth the price especially when having two large breeds, joint/skeletal support is very important.



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. 

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


Moderate Chewers & Scratchers

Built 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. Velcro closures replace zippers (bolstered beds have one hidden zipper on the back) and prevent emergency zipper related veterinary visits. Reduced seams and strategic seam placement reduce weak spots and if our proprietary TUFF flex Ballistic material wasn’t tough enough, we've upgraded it with Rip-Stop technology! 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

K9 Sizing Chart - Crate Pads

We recommend measuring your dog's crate/kennel and comparing dimensions with our bed's measurements. These Crate Pads are easily rolled or folded to fit crates smaller than the bed's total dimensions.

Size Dimensions
X-Small 30" x 19" x 2"
Small 36" x 23" x 2"
Medium 43" x 28" x 2"
Large 47" x 28" x 2"
X-Large 50" x 36" x 2"


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.

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!


machine washable dog bed mattress

High Density Memory Foam

Our orthopedic mattresses are made with two layers of foam: the top 1" layer of high quality memory foam, and the bottom 1" 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 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 or Orthopedic Tuff Crate Pads within the guarantee period, we'll replace the cover, free of charge. If your dog manages through our TUFF Crate 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.


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.
