Our dog bed designs were built from the ground up removing all features and design aesthetics that didn’t add value,then doubling down on those things that did. It’s our pursuit of perfection and our willingness to listen to what matters most to our customers that keeps us ahead of our competition. Many people have copied our designs and our lessons learned from being the first to innovate. Although coping us is flattering, we can assure our customers that our constant innovation and earned customer loyalty is what will always set us apart.
Our proprietary « RIP-STOP BALLISTIC » fabric was engineered by us, specifically for a dog’s lifestyle. It’s densely woven, durable construction can take a beating from a dog’s nails. It’s waterproof, preventing moisture from accidents or wet dogs from reaching the mattress. It’s rip-stop, preventing tears from spreading, should one start. It’s odor resistant due to the properties of the synthetic fibers. We’ve designed the surface to be smooth, so fur doesn’t cling and is easily brushed off.
« RIP-STOP BALLISTIC VELVET » Some of our customers asked for a tough fabric that is softer and quieter, so we've designed it for them. If you look closely, you can see the squares from our Ballistic Rip-Stop fabric. We used our tough fabric as the base and built upon it. This fabric treatment adds a layer of comfort, but please note that fur may cling to it. Nothing a quick vacuuming won't take care of.

FEATURES & BENEFITS
A « RIP-STOP » type of material is an anti-tearing material, in other words, a material that stops tearing should one occur. A strong fiber is woven through the base fabric, creating a pattern of raised squares that acts as a secondary line of defense to halt tearing.
« DWR » stands for Durable Water Repellent. It’s a water repellent treatment on the outer layer of the material. The DWR polymer is absorbed by the fibres of the external material and reduces friction on surface. The result, water stands on the material instead of being absorbed. This treatment isn’t permanent but you can renew it any time if necessary.
« WATERPROOF MEMBRANE » is a thin, transparent, film we use as coating on the back side of our ballistic fabric for its good quality elasticity and resistance to moisture. Our fabric is naturally water repellent but when it is bonded to this waterproof membrane it becomes waterproof.
