We bought the Tuff crate pad for our corgi, Travis. The pad arrived very quickly and seemed durable and attractive. Once we started using it, we were very impressed. Travis hasn't chewed it up at all, and he seems to really like sleeping on it. Plus, it's super easy to clean! Overall, we are very happy with our purchase.

We bought a dog bed for our 60lb Pit (who is the biggest, most loving, sweetest big baby) because he likes to 'eat' his beds. We've had this one for over a week now and not one bite mark! Biskapit can't eat it! YEA! Now he can sleep and so can I. I love it! very happy!!!

Our 7 year-old pup recently developed separation anxiety, and within a month had destroyed six different crate beds. I bought the Tuff Bed Crate Pad with high hopes ... our first one lasted 3 hours. BUT, the customer service team at K-9 Ballistics was incredible. They sent us a replacement immediately and we've started leaving a stuffed Kong with our dog whenever we leave her. One month in and she's already much calmer when we come and go, and she seems to love her bed again.

I bought one of these it arrived today-put it in my Doberman's crate and left for about an hour came back and its chewed up-not what I expected for the money I spent.

We've had this pad for a week now and so far so good. Our english bulldog destroyed everything else we had in her crate and so far this thing is still in tact.

We have a 9 month old Great Dane & Lab mix. He has destroyed every bed we have ever gotten him. Luckily we were always able to return them no questions asked for a full refund (at pets mart). This is the first bed we have gotten that claimed to be chew proof however doesn't provide a refund. It took our puppy all of 2.5 hours to have a hole and stuffing out. If you claim to be chew proof but don't offer a refund or full replacement does the claim chew proof even mean anything.

We recently adopted a pit bull mix from local shelter.she has been sleeping on her tuff crate cushion since it arrived last week and loves it. We put her and it in a crate for first time last week to keep her safe while we went shopping. Upon returning home, she had bent the bars in the cage like the Incredible Hulk and threw her cushion around but it was intact and unscathed. The crate is outside for garbage collection. Long live her cushion!
Dog Lover: Susan.
It is nice material but it doesn't exactly do as the demo shows you when a pet is to urinate on it. It stays right where she did it and doesn't run to the side walls. Otherwise it seems to be chew proof and easy to clean. I am still baffled as to why they would add a tag to it because the puppy chewed that right off. Just doesn't seem necessary.

We previously purchased the Original Tuff Bed for our Doberman puppy and were extremely satisfied. He's had that for about 6 months and hasn't put a hole in it. We've used other popular "chew resistant" crate beds and blankets...which he has demolished. We've had the Tuff Bed Crate Pad for about one week and he hasn't even tried to chew it. We are extremely happy with both products that we've purchased...well worth the money!!
Dog Lover: Tara.
Very strong. And surprisingly, also very comfortable (which I was worried about before I ordered). Fits perfectly in my dog's crate. Love it. Am thinking about getting another one to use in our living room.
Dog Lover: Trevor.
We purchased this after our Rott/AST mix chewed up TWO Kong beds. So far, she has not been able to destroy this bed and I'm not even sure that she is still trying. Some of our other dogs have gone into her crate and had accidents and this bed cleans up nicely. I highly recommend this bed if your dogs are chewers like our dogs are!
Dog Lover: Courtney.
This crate pad is very nice and thicker than I expected. Our dog, a 1-year-old lab mix, seems to like lying on it. It only took her 30 minutes of being alone with it to chew a sizeable hole in it and begin removing the stuffing, however.
Dog Lover: J. Fisher.
I bought the Tuff Crate Pad for my one year old German Shepherd. He chews and destroys pretty much anything he can get his mouth around. I bought this pad because I was sure I was going to need to take K9 Ballistics up on the 90 Day Guarantee, but we've had the crate pad for two weeks and there are no signs of wear at all! I'm so impressed because we've never had any kind of bedding last this long! Well worth the money.
Dog Lover: Kristen.
All I can say is HOLY S*** ! The Kong brand we first purchased was gone in a few days . This Pad is still like new after a week or so. I really thought I was going to be sending it back for a refund. I would love to know the secret in your product. Not one chew mark. Oh well I will just have to be satisfied with this great product!!

We were so excited at the prospect of a dog bed that our 9 English Pointers wouldn't be able to chew! We currently use wood chips in our dogs' kennels, and we are desparately seeking an alternative to the mess and dust that the chips create. Unfortunately, these beds are not Pointer proof! After 2 days of the new K9 Ballistics TUFF Bed Crate Pads in their kennels, they have successfully shredded them and pulled out the stuffing! So disappointing. Still looking for a better way...
K9 BALLISTICS RESPONSE - Charles please send a photo of the damage to email@example.com. We will send out the warranty replacement as soon as possible!

This is the best crate pad I have found. My Labrador puppy DESTROYED every crate pad other than the Tuff Bed. She was able to chew through the edges of the Tuff Bed, but k9ballistics sent me a replacement the same day I sent them the picture of the chewed edges. k9ballistics has the best customer service I have every dealt with! I will definitely shop here again and tell my dog loving friends to do the same.
Dog Lover: Heidi.
Unfortunately this did not even last overnight in the crate before a hole was chewed open and stuffing was being eaten :(
K9 BALLISTICS RESPONSE - Please email a picture of the damaged bed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send a replacement pad for your dog right away!
Dog Lover: Crystal.
So far they have been great. The dogs are sleeping better and they haven't chewed the beds.
Dog Lover: Earl.
My boxers love their new crate mats. They are comfortable and easy to clean. One of them chewed a one of the corners and true to their guarantee, K9 Ballistics replaced it at no charge!!!! I highly recommend these beds!
Dog Lover: Holly.
So far, so good. Our beagle mix destroyed two "so called" tough crate pads before we heard about K-9 Ballistics. I wasn't thrilled with the look of the pad; I expected something fluffier. My dog, however, finds it quite comfortable and, after one full week, has not been able to chew it at all! SUCCESS.
Dog Lover: Virginia C.
So far, my Catahoula hound dog hasn't been able to scratch or chew her new bed. She really seems to enjoy it. She destroys every thing I have put in her crate so far. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Dog Lover: Carolyn.
I purchased this for my daughters pit bull puppy. This dog can destroy a crate pad in a matter of days. Since getting her this pad she has not been able to chew it up. She has peed on it repeatedly. Love the fact that it is washable.
Dog Lover: Theresa H.
we have a 6 month old black lab. He has destroyed everything we have given him. I had high hopes for this bed and the fact that it chew and scratch proof. The bed was delivered last Thursday, August 28th and by day 6, he had ripped a hole in it and pulled some of the stuffing out. I have submitted the warranty claim and i am truly hoping this one will last.
K9 BALLISTICS RESPONSE: We've received your warranty request and are sending out your replacement TUFF Bed Crate Pad now. Puppies often outgrow the chewing phase of their development, you may want to withhold the replacement from your lab until his nibbling becomes less aggressive!
Dog Lover: Amanda V.
My little dog has now been using his new TUFF bed crate pad and he really enjoys it. He actually goes into his crate voluntarily now and he never did that before. And I have the peace of mind knowing he can't get hurt if he tries to chew on the bed. Thanks for making a great product. I will definitely recommend your products to my friends!
Dog Lover: Deborah F.
My golden has major anxiety problems so I have to keep him crated when I'm gone. I have tried keeping beds or blankets in his crate so it's more comfortable but he rips everything to shreds. This tuff bed crate pad is the first thing that has lasted over a week. And believe me, he has tried. Every time I come home, I find it in a heap in the back of his crate......but still intact. I just hope eventually he leaves it alone and just enjoys the comfort.
Dog Lover: Sara.
I wasn't looking for anything chew proof as my basset hounds aren't destructive. I was, however, looking for bedding to be placed in a crate that they couldn't bunch up and then be left lying on the cold, hard, plastic kennel floor. These are perfect. Comfortable, easy to clean. Very well made. I purchased 2, one for each kennel. They still bunch up their bedding, but the kennel pad remains in place and they remain comfortable.

My 6 month old goldendoodle is not a "true" chewer, but this pad was the only one, (after scouring the internet), that fit the size crate I have. It fits perfectly!
When the pad first arrived, he did that "neck shaking... I'm going to break it apart thing". The pad stayed in shape despite many days of trying!!He did pee on it one night when it was out of his crate. I followed the washing instructions, and the pad came out of the dryer perfectly clean.
Dog Lover: Anne B.
My dog Bear is normally a terror with everything I put in his crate when we are away, it's just unbeliavabe that it doesn't even look like he has tried, I don't know why he hasn't messed with it or if he did we can't tell and he actually goes in there now on his own just to get away from the other dogs.
Dog Lover: Angelo V.
Duke, my 1 1/2 yr old Labrador Retriever has destroyed other crate pads & beds; but not this one so far!! Also, after using it for only 2 days, he had diarrhea all over the pad.The pad cleaned up beautifully, left no stains or odors. It looks brand new. I highly recommend this product and will definitely purchase the bed TUFF bed for him in the near future.
Dog Lover: Gina.
So far so good. My dog is not just a chewer, she is a destroyer of anything she can get her mouth on. The only thing I don't like is I wish the material was less crinkly sounding. Her crate is in our bedroom and every time she repositions herself, it wakes me up. Hoping to get used to it. But as long as I don't find holes where she has tried to eat her way through it, then we are golden.
Dog Lover: Holley.
My dog chewed through the cover the first day. Not impressed and not happy to be out $50.00.
K9 BALLISTICS RESPONSE - Please send a photo of the damage to email@example.com. We will send out a replacement pad according to our Chew Proof Guarantee right away!
Dog Lover: KAC.
These are the only crate pads and beds made with the same material that my German Shepherd and Lab will not destroy. Thank you for making this amazing product!!
Dog Lover: Ivana B.
After reading the reviews on this product, I ordered it thinking that this was a crate pad that my lab puppy would not be able to destroy. Unfortunately, the first time we left him alone in his crate, he chewed a hole in it and pulled out the stuffing. I contacted K9 Ballistics and they willingly sent another one. They also suggested using bitter apple spray on it. I tried that option, but the same thing happened again. I am sorry to say I cannot recommend this product.
Dog Lover: Ann Schleper.
Our 6 month old Sheprador was destroying everything we put in his crate. I was skeptical when we tried this but it seemed to work right away. It almost seemed as if the dog liked it and didn't want to destroy it. He did manage to chew a very small hole in one of the seams. K9 Ballistics took care of us. I would definitely recommend this product.
Dog Lover: Ronnie W.
ONly one week into our new PWD puppy but he loves his new K9 pad. As sson as we got him we tried it out in his crate and he went right in! No accidents yet...
Dog Lover: Carol.
We have a 1 year old Lab (Labrigator). He chewed through all bedding until we found Tuff. He did chew a bit of the Tuff as well after about 3 months but he was at the doggie hotel when he did it and it wasn't destroyed. I turned it over and that is the bedding he uses right now. I bought a second one for the car. Great product.
Dog Lover: Skeeter.
My lab/pit mix chewed a hole into the bed on day one. I've had the bed for over a week now and since the first hole he hasn't made another. Not sure why but I'm surprised he didn't keep making them. So far it's been the longest lasting bed because it's lasted more than 2 days. We shall see...
Dog Lover: Rob C.
beautiful pad! However in less than a week my 6 month old shepherd found a weak spot and ripped the seam. I submitted a warranty claim # 2574 and no word yet!
Dog Lover: John O.
Well, chew proof they are not. Although it has taken my two pits about a week to destroy them, which is longer than the normal bed, it is still disappointing to spend that much money on dog beds only to have them last about a week.
Dog Lover: Amanda Jeane.
I had searched high and low for something that would last through the night in my puppies kennel. He is a 9 mo. old pitbull and had this bed torn apart and the stuffing pulled out in only an hour or so. My dog doesn't chew any household items other than his bed and toys which aren't kept in his kennel. But for something that's advertized as being one of the toughest... i'm sadly not impressed. i'm out 50 dollars.
Dog Lover: Philip .
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 surged. 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.
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!
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 recomend 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!
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!
