Chew Proof Rating
Moderate Chewers & ScratchersBuilt K9 Tough, resisting 90% of chewing dogs, good for almost any dog. Backed by our 90 Day Warranty, 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 Tough 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.
Tough 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!)
Our Tough 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 an exposed plastic or metal zipper which 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!
CertiPUR-US Orthopedic foam

CertiPUR-US certified foams are:
- ✔ Made without ozone depleters
- ✔ Made without PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP (”Tris”) flame retardants

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 orthopedic foam dog bed.
Our orthopedic beds can prevent joint problems, ease joint pain that's already begun, or just plain spoil your canine companion.
Our Warranty for the Orthopedic Round Tough 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.
10 Year No Flatten Guarantee for Orthopedic Mattresses
This is a one-time warranty per order. If your orthopedic mattress flattens more than 2 inches or 50% within 10 years from normal use, we will replace it once free of charge. This does not apply to mattresses that have flattened due to destructive behaviors such as chewing, digging, or scratching, nor will we replace mattresses that have flattened due to water damage or exposure to urine. Should the mattress become wet, please allow it to air dry completely before allowing your dog to use it again to prevent any potential damage from occurring to the foam.
To file a claim for the replacement, simply send us a photo of the mattress beside a tape measure or ruler to show its current thickness. Please remove the outer cover and liner before photographing the fill so that we can better see the flattened area. You may send the photo along with your name and address to here to start the claim process. You will not be required to ship the damaged fill back to us.
Please note that this guarantee applies only to orthopedic inserts and does not cover nesting/original mattresses.
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 here. 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.

Worth every dollar!This bed is HUGE and cushy and the dogs LOVE it! I have 2 that always chew up beds and they haven’t even tried to chew this one! ???????????????? Totally worth the money!
Great QualitySo far so good. My bulldogge has ripped apart 7 different beds within days and going on 2 weeks with this bed. They like it and havent even tried to rip it. Material is non absorbant so easy clean for vomit or accidents. I had my 7 yr old son try to get through the valcro to the zipper and he couldnt do it. Great quality mentioned these beds to my trainer for future recommendations.
great beddogs love the bed !!!
Best beds yet.This is one amazing dog bed. We rescued a Doberman that has a chew problem and was chewing holes in her bed. I received this bed and she has not chewed on it at all, it remains in perfect condition. It is very well made, so I ordered the bolster bed and it is holding up very well too. Our dogs prefer the bolster beds so I have ordered a second one then all three will have a k9 bed. The best dog beds I have found.
Its goodMy dog is a rough chewing dog and he got into it in the first 5 minutes because of the velcro opening (not the best idea) the closure should be better!
The Outside is fantastic but if you have that fantastic of an idea...you also should have a way to keep the dogs out of the bed as well- TOO EXPENSIVE to have them with Velcro!
Great productSo far, 9 month old Belgian malinois has not torn up the bed- she can shred a cloth toy in 4-5 minutes but has not torn up this bed- over 2 weeks and still intact- that's amazing!
Comfortable bed built to lastVery comfortable, dogs love it. The top of the bed has a soft microfiber outer cover which makes it feel softer and doesn't make noise when dog is moving around. We have supervised our puppy and he's in the crate during the night and when we aren't home. The material is tough enough to handle some chewing attempts and the design doesn't give the dog a good place to grab.
So far so goodSo far so good! I got the bed for my 8 yr old Lab/pit mix because she's just having trouble getting up after she's laid down a while so I thought the orthopedic would help. I also had to have the chew proof because my 7 month old boxer mix has chewed up every bed at our house including her big sisters bed. My lab is very picky about her bed though and this one is taking her some time to get use to.
Love it so far!!It's only been a little over a week, but so far so good. My very destructive dog has not attempted to even chew on this bed! Good quality with a thick mattress.
Very happy with the bed well me !!The round tuff bed We are very happy with we give it a four star haven't had it that long so it might deserve a five star, but yes we are very pleased and I would recommend it to A friend
Very happy customer

Very happy customer
Yellow Lab puppy-proofSo far we love this bed! Our 8mo old yellow lab does too! He has chewed and ripped 5 beds in just 6 months and we were so frustrated with buying and sewing beds. I have been happy so far with the quality and fact that our wild little Levi can't rip it!
Excellent dog bed!This bed is really tough - we keep it outside for the dogs and it is really holding up + looks nice!
Great bed.Great bed. Round is the way to go if you have chewers.
Still on the fenceThe cover is tough. No doubt. Our Rottie has given up even trying to beat it. But after three weeks (and we've taken the cushion out of the covers) it still hasn't puffed up. It's about 2 inches thick and doesn't seem to expand beyond that.
K9 Ballistics Response: The bed should reach 5" thickness within 1-2 weeks; if it still hasn't expanded, please send us a photo of the mattress so that we can confirm the defect and have a replacement sent out.
Great bedThe dog loves the bed and it fits in his crate well. Only issue may be is that he found the seam on bottom where you assemble it and enjoys trying to get it apart. Hoping he gives up on tearing into that part.
He loves it and can't chew it!My pit bull Walter chewed up every little bed we tried to give him. I simply googled, "chew proof beds" and K9 Ballistics popped up everywhere and had great reviews. Though he's tried to chew up his new Tuff Bed, his attempts to destroy has bed have been unsuccessful. Not only that, he loves to lay on it! Truly a great product
Two thumbs upI have two Great Danes that are picky about what they sleep on. So far they love the beds, they have torn up many beds in the past but these will hold up to them trying to move them or reshape them.
Great colorsWe picked one a little bigger then we needed, but so far the puppies have not complained.
Best dog bed everI ordered two of the round orthopedic beds for my dogs and have had them for about two months. They have tried but cannot chew into these beds. I am very satisfied with the quality of this bed. And I am sure my dogs love them.
Very satisfiedOur shepherd went after it like it was a new toy. Biting and digging on it. No damage. I regret I did not video it. This is the first bed we trusted to leave in the kennel. The round tuff bed fit inside the dogloo dog house perfectly. Very satisfied.
Great productI have two ten month old miniature dachshund puppies that chew everything especially beds. This is their third bed and so far so good. They seem to really like the comfort of the bed. The bed keeps its form and doesn't go flat. Hopefully this one makes it. The bed is made of very high quality material that is easy to clean. Now, if I can just find a couch that will make it.
Love themWell my dogs and I love the beds, they sleep on them during the day but still in bed with me at night, a bad habit to break.
Just wish you had the pillow around say half of the top of the orthopedic circle beds, my dogs like resting their head on the raised pillow on the nesting bed. I will be ordering maybe two more in the future, one for their kennel and one for my back porch.
Great for outdoorsLoved the bed so much for my Ridgebacks..ordered another one! Love this bed for outside and if dirty paw prints get on it it's easy to clean.
Like the orthopedic bedSo far the bed is surviving
Medium chew proof bedMy dog loves this new bed, medium is a perfect size for him. Great bed, you can see and feel the quality. I recommend this bed
Not So Good, but not K-9s fault!My greyhound is getting a little older, so i bought an orthopedic bed after she had been sleeping on a K-9 nesting bed and she hated it!! Found her sleeping on my couch which she hadn't tried to do in 8 yrs! I ordered a nesting mattress to fill the cover I had personalized. Love this product. bad call on my part!!
Great Dane can't destroy the bedI have a 11 month 115 lb Great Dane and its only been a week but so far, so good. The bed seems too heavy and ockward for a dog to flip and destroy. Also the bed doesn't flatten. Thank you.
dog bedMy Rottweiler loves her orthopedic bed
Very nice bedNo problems at all. Seems comfortable for the dogs
Very nice quality and so far, chew proof.My pup, Sherlock, is 11 months old and very "mouthy." He chews everything but he has not destroyed his Orthopedic Round TUFF bed. He has tried but doesn't seem to like the consistency. I am delighted and Sherlock has a great place to sleep when I am not at home. I am not worried about him ingesting that horrible stuffing that was in his previous bed.
excellent bemy dog is very happy with it
awsome bed my great dane loves itI have a great Dane she loves her new bed.
I would recommend this bed to any owner of a large breed dog or any dog with hip or joint issues.
Great!My 6 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback could not destroy this bed. Kiera had gone through 4 beds before we purchased the TUFF bed and it still looks brand new. Every once in a while she drags it around the living room but cannot damage it. Definitely worth the price!
Thee Best, Hands Down!Have already told so many about K9 Ballistics for dog beds. If you have a large breed, or a chewer & scratcher, this is what you want. I now have three, one for the kennel outside, kennel inside and a round one for the dogloo.
You will not be disappointed!
excellent productWe ordered 2 of the extra large beds for outdoors. So far so good, our pups love them & they look great on our patio!
Good product and absolutely chew proofThe dogs love the beds and have not been successful in chewing thru the covers at all --- great product.
GoodYour company was kind enough to send along the spray which we sprayed liberally on every inch of the bed, but Lily was able to bite through to make a hole. Lily is a rescue dog, part Pit Bull & terrier. We have had her for 8 months and she came to us with plenty of anxiety especially when we are gone to work. Unfortunately, we will need to request another top with the guarantee. Not the company's fault, we are lucky our home is still up!
This company is the best to deal with out of this world sevicehank you so Calvin from K9 Ballistics. Thank you for the wonderful Orthopedic Round TUFF Bed! I really am so happy with both of beds, extremely high quality product for my best friend, and I am glad to spread the word to everyone that i like the beds so much, these beds made my both dogs so much happier"This company is the best to deal with, out of this world service. The beds are the best ever had in my life,I am very very happy with product. My both dogs love them and they use them a lot because they are the most comfortable beds they ever had in their lives." -Vita!
This company is the best to deal with out of this world seviceThis company is the best to deal with out of this world sevice. The beds are the best I am very very happy with product. My both dogs love them and they see them as the most comfortable beds they ever had.
Finally!We have finally found the dog bed that will hold up to our anxiety-ridden, destroy-everything-in-sight, Weimaraner. She has ripped up dog beds, pillows, blankets and even a couch, but she has not been able to destroy this bed. We are so happy we can now leave her alone in the house and trust she will be comfortable with a place to sleep (as long as our two cats don't steal her spot). Hair easily brushes off and I haven't noticed any staining or odors, even though she regularly takes treats to her bed. We are beyond satisfied with this product and hope to have this bed for years to come. The ball that came with the bed was a fantastic touch also! Thank you!
Pop of ColorAbsolutely love this! And more importantly, so do the dogs! I had another bed for them and came home one morning after being gone for 1/2 hour and they had shredded it! I got the orange striped round bed for them and it is not only durable, it adds a nice pop of color in the kitchen. I notice that the dogs keep scratching the bed, trying to take it apart and it just isn't happening. I am a big fan and dogs are happy!
SHE LIKES IT !!!GREAT BED FOR COMFORT. SO FAR SHE HAS NOT CHEWED ON IT. SHE HAS CHEWED OTHER BEDS, BUT NOT THIS ONE. WILL UPDATE IN 60 DAYS. VERY WELL BUILT BED THAT SHOULD LAST FOR YEARS
Love it!Our Australian shepherd / border collie mix chewed every bed up within days. So far this one has survived without any damage. So glad to have found it!
the best!We got this bed after our Rottweiler-mix puppy chewed through three others. It's very neat and crisp-looking, doesn't hold dog hair, but is still very comfy for her. She gave it a couple of experimental gnaws but quickly gave up. Only problem was that our 13-lb terrier stole it, leaving the puppy on the floor. So now we have both the marine stripe and the sunny stripe beds, and they look great together!
Mud Room BedI purchased two round beds to eliminate edges, or better known as Finnegan teeth handles. As soon as the beds were unpacked and as they were unfolding they were sprayed with the K9 Bitter spray. The new beds, now replace the old dog beds that were shells, as the foam guts were swept up several times, and remain in place today. The mud room chair has now been also sprayed with the K9 bitter spray in hopes that it will support our weight the next time we sit to lace up our boots. (...)
Tango digs it!Tango is a 95 pd 7yr German Shepherd mix with some hip joint injuries/pain. The last bed I bought was from Costco, which he would not use. We purchased the X-large Ortho bed from K-9 and I was worried that he would not use this bed either. To my delight, when we opened the shipping box and unfolded the bed, he immediately stepped on it and laid down. Now he sleeps as comfortably at night as we do in our bed! (Wish I could attach a pic -- many thanks to your team & the designers!) - Tanya
Tuff BedWe have a Basset just under a year old and went through many (MANY!!!) beds with her. Typical survival time for her beds was <2days. We tried everything to get her past the bed chewing, but nothing worked. The round Tuff Bed did the trick. She has been on the bed for four months and has had no issues at all. She really likes her bed and spends lots of time on it. I highly recommend this bed for anyone with a chewing problem.
Happy pupWe have a year old Great Dane. He has gone through many regular store beds. The tuff bed is great! He can strech out and still has room to roll. I am going to order the fur cover, the other makes a bit of noise when he moves while we sleep.
R.V.T.Very impressed. Great quality and great style. It looks great on my deck and the dogs love it. Best dog bed I have ever purchased!
Our Labrador LOVES THIS BED,bought the x large which is way to big for him but since it is so big and it is round he has not tried to chew it. wish i would have known about these beds 3 years ago.
FantasticOur aging Chessie loves this bed, and our "youthful" Boston can't destroy it. I'm so glad we've finally found something that works! The customer service is fantastic, and the product is extremely high quality. Worth every single penny.
Round Ortho Tuff BedThis is the second bed I've purchased from K9 Ballistics. This bed is great for my 150lb mastiff it's great support for him, he loves it. Also he doesn't try to chew it all others beds he chews apart LOL.
Tough, Comfortable, But NoisyMy aging Lab loves this bed and it is the first doggie bed that has ever lasted longer than a week without being torn to shreds. We've found it pulled into different rooms, but it's survived so far. The one real issue that I have is that the ballistic cover is very noisy. Our lab makes a tremendous racket moving around on it at night. It sounds kinda like Velcro being pulled apart. And since she sleeps in the bedroom it keeps me up.
Pretty Tough!From a home with 2 Pit Bull Terriers and one "termite" like wood chewing Lab puppy, this bed still looks new. The puppy was first to get to the bed, and peed on it right away to mark her spot...even though it's not her's! The senior Pitty is a tough chewer also, but prefers harder materials and loves to chew and slobber his antlers on the bed, without any visible signs other than a wet spot. Thanks!
Tuff Bed CoverWe have a boxer who eats everything including his beds.In November, he almost died after swallowing 4 socks. After surgery,we searched for a bed that he wouldn't be able to destroy. We purchased the orthopedic foam with the Tuff Bed Cover. 3 months later, there isn't even a mark on the bed. Not only has he given up trying to destroy it, he really likes sleeping on it. I would highly recommend this bed to all dog owners especially those with dogs who like to chew.
Works outdoors too!I needed an outdoor (poolside) orthopedic bed for my 10 yr. old arthritic German Shepherd. She loves this bed, and it has held up well in heat, sun, showers, and "wet dog" conditions. We put it inside on its side when not in use, and so far, no mildew or smells. We love it!
great supportThis is the most supportive, firm bed I've every purchased. Rip-stop Ballistic Tuff cover is really durable. Go ahead and get one, it's worth it
Great bed, durableThis bed is awesome. My dog is getting up there in age and has occasional accidents. This bed gives his old bones the support they need but keeps any accidents he has from soaking into the foam. Not sure you planned it this way but these beds are he van sent for older dogs like mine. If there were 6 stars I would have chosen that option. Great bed
120 Day Warranty
If your dog chews through this product, 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 120 days from the day that K9 Ballistics shipped out your purchase.
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 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.
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 Tough bed or Tough 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 Warranty on all Nesting, Round, Orthopedic, Mini Tough Beds and Tough Pads. If your dog does manage to chew through one of the Tough Beds within the warranty period, we'll replace the cover, free of charge. If your dog manages through our Tough Pads or Mini Tough 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 Tough beds?
Our Tough 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.
