I bought this for my son's dog. He has chewed through 4 beds and anything you put in his pen. I hope this works!

I have a very aggressive chewer. I ordered a bed for my Lab/Border Collie mix. He had holes chewed in the first bed within 3 days of receiving it. It was replaced, at no cost to me, and he had chewed three holes in it within the first 24 hours. I have since gotten another dog, a playmate for him, and he isn't chewing on it much at all now. I am, overall, happy with the bed and he does like laying on it.
Dog Lover: Martha B.
Very pleased with the quality of the crate pad and Kai, our Giant Schnauzer, loves it. I would definitely recommend this product. And I love that we could buy it in red.
Dog Lover: Pat.
The first pad ordered was small all the way around but it was replaced promptly and the second was accurate in measurement. However, our dog is 10 months old and is an avid chewer and was able to tear the corner before we stopped her. I was able to sew it closed and we are waiting until she hopefully outgrows the active chewing to re-introduce the pad in her crate. She seemed to like the comfort of the pad. We were very pleased with the responsiveness of K-9 ballistics.
Dog Lover: Nancy U.
My heavy chewer has not attempted to chew this crate pad, so far. It's been in her crate a couple weeks now. She digs (scratches) at it, but doesn't rip it. Plus it cleans off so easily! Bonus!!
Dog Lover: Debbie .
I have a 60lb cur mix. He destroyed the first 2 beds for the crate. I have had this one for about 3 weeks and no signs of wear. It fits perfect. It looks like this one is going to last. Very happy with this purchase.
Dog Lover: Jerry.
Loved it the first nigh! Even had it at a different house on the 3rd night w/o my crate. Never tried to teat it up, I like it too much. NOTE: I do tear up my blankets!
Dog Lover: Shadow - 13 mo doberman.
the Tuff crate pad is well made and Jake loves it. So far, he has not chewed it up! I really appreciate the prompt customer service when if was not delivered in the initial order. Thank you.
Dog Lover: steve.
I was really excited when I took this out of the package, the quality appeared very good, and the crate pad seemed very durable, but unfortunately my year old shepard mix had torn 3 holes in it within 2 hours. I was sent a replacement which is very nice but we will probably donate it.
Dog Lover: Jen.
My two labs see the "chewproof" label as more of a challenge than an actual feature of a product! But so far, so good. My babies have not chew through the crate pad yet, and it fits the crate perfectly. Happy to have found this product!
Dog Lover: Kathy.
Our 6 month old 55 pound yellow lab destroyed three beds before we got this one. It's been two weeks and it's still in one piece. Money well spent! Thanks for a great product
Dog Lover: Phyllis B.
We've had this bed for a week. I only left our Lab in the crate with it for a few minutes the first couple of "test cases." Then took the plunge and left her in the crate on the TUFF pad for 2 hours. When I returned the pad was still in one piece! That's an achievement for my sweet girl who routinely tears up crate pads. I'm keeping fingers crossed!
Dog Lover: Katrina.
While tremendously disappointed in the product I purchased, the goods news is that the folks at K9 were a pleasure to deal with. They processed my return straight away with no questions asked aside from a picture of the damage.
The downside being that I needed to return my crate pad after one day as Kodiak (80lb boxer/shepherd) chewed through it the first night. After the replacement arrived, It took him about a week to chew through that one. Hardly what I expected and very disappointing.
Dog Lover: Kevin.
Well, not exactly indestructible. My mini-aussie ate a hole in the side of it in ten days. I look forward to receiving a replacement and will try the "sour apple" trick (spraying the cover with dog repellent sour apple). The product is attractive, just wish it were a little more "indestructible".
Dog Lover: Larry L.
We love these Pads. My Bullador has ripped up every bed she has had and that is a lot. These pads have lasted her longer than any Pad she has had . She ripped a hole on one side after two weeks but . we received a replacement one and sprayed it with bitter apple. She has not chewed on it at all and loves her bed now. I would highly recommend these Pads . We have two now and are very Happy and so is Miley. The people are wonderful to deal with . Great product .
Dog Lover: Barbara Corkern.
I am a repeat customer which says a lot. The key is to realize that dogs that chew will not be cured by using this product. It is still necessary to train dogs to NOT chew - but this cover gives you a fighting chance to accomplish this task, and once it is done, they have a very durable comfortable nest for life. This product is high quality with a smart design (no zipper = a less satisfying chewing and tearing experience, and is one less possibility for your dog to ingest a foreign body). The bed fill is great quality and holds up to repeat washing. And possibly most importantly for me - the customer service provided by K9 Ballistics is outstanding. I highly recommend the covers, the beds and the crate mats. Thanks for consistently great products and consistently great customer service.
Dog Lover: Tara.
Sorry! Crate pad was no match for our 8-month-old Vizsla, Mia. She chewed a hole in it in record time. Maybe your beds would hold up to her better, but they don't come in the size we need for her travel kennel. Thanks for trying.
Dog Lover: Patti W.
We bought this for our 9 month old German Shepherd puppy. He had destroyed two other crate pads within a matter of minutes. Once we put the TUFF crate pad in his crate he chewed on it and tousled it around inside of his crate off and on for the first couple of days. It withstood his chewing and doesn't have a single rip, tear or thread pull. Now, after 3 weeks he doesn't even bother the pad. This pad has definitely met our expectations!
Dog Lover: Kellie N.
The Tuff Bed Crate Pad lasted longer than anything else so far - about 3 days before he made a hole it in. I haven't contacted the company yet for a replacement, but according to other reviews, this won't be an issue. Previous beds have been shredded after one day, and this time, he only managed a hole - not complete destruction! Because of that, I'm still impressed with the quality of the bed and am glad I ordered it!
Dog Lover: Julia W.
We purchased this bed for our 5 month old GSD in June he only had a month to use it before passing! Since then we have another GSD (brother of the first) that is now 5 months and has chewed though this bed in the 3 months he has had it! This may be chew proof for adult dogs that do not chew. Not for puppy sharp teeth! I would not recommend this bed for a puppy! For the price and the "GUARANTEE" your better off putting a towel in the crate and save your money during the puppy stages
Dog Lover: Matt .
Our 80+ pound Pit has eaten everything we bought within a few days each time. The pad we got for his wire cage has withstood all of his attempts (We think he is giving up!) to chew it, so we are very happy with the purchase and will be getting an outside the cage bed from these fine folks!
Dog Lover: Joe.
My lab was a rescue and suffers from anxiety. She has to be crated when we go out or she will destroy the house. She's had this pad in her crate for a couple of weeks now and so far - no damage. Fingers crossed it stays that way but so far I love this pad for her.
Dog Lover: Stephanie.
SO FAR my Labradoodle seems to like the TUFF Bed Crate Pad. She normally pulls her pads out of her crate and chews on them, BUT not this one!! IT stays nicely in her crate. She hasn't been chewing on it and she is a BIG chewer. Oh, and cleanup is a breeze. I would have no problem recommending this product to others.
Dog Lover: Debbie C.
Though stronger than most bed pads we've tried, this one did not pass the test. Our 1-1/2 year old Brittany chewed a hole in it within hours of putting it in his crate. We will still keep it, since it is the toughest we've found so far and is better than nothing when it's really cold. The hole is along the outside section so at least the amount of stuffing he can pull out is limited.
Dog Lover: Jennie.
Very happy with the crate pad we recently ordered. It's durable and fits perfectly. Our 1 year old lab puppy is a chewer and has not tried to chew this whatsoever. Just enough cushioning and easy to wipe clean. Extremely satisfied!
Dog Lover: Michelle.
I was hopeful for this bed, as it seems to work for many people. Unfortunately, my 30 lb. 1-year old dalmatian mix chewed several holes through the bed after 3-4 days. He didn't tear the thing to shreds, which he did with earlier beds, but he chewed 4-5 2-inch holes in the pad and ripped out all of the stuffing. I contacted customer service and they were more than helpful. They sent me another bed - free of charge - within a week or so. It lasted about 1 week; I noticed holes yesterday morning.
Dog Lover: Paula.
This product is amazing. Our 2 German Shepherd pups tore a hole in one. They replaced it free of charge and with no hassle at all. I am impressed with the product and service. What razor shard teeth of a 3 month old pup, I had to expect they shred something they sleep with. Not a disappointment by any means. I am very happy that we got such wonderful customer service.
Thanks K-9 Ballistics!!! We will continue to purchase from you.
Dog Lover: Patricia.
The TUFF bed crate pad is wonderful. Our 4 year old pit bull has not been able to chew and shred it to pieces as he has previously done with other pads. Very sturdy product and comfortable for both our dogs with orthopedic issues. Thanks for making a great product.
Dog Lover: Belinda.
Buddy, our six month old bird dog, has eaten his way through four beds. He has met his match with this Balistic's crate pad. He was boarded at our kennel while we were on vacation and he gave the kennel pad his best. The pad won!!!
Dog Lover: Laura S.
Ordered this as a gift for a dog that dug through the plastic tray in his crate! Now that the weather is cold, his crate was cold too. He has had the pad for several weeks and it has survived. Thank you for making a great product!
I researched crate pads and beds for months before I finally purchased this one. Within 3 days my dog had the ends of the crate pad chewed through. Within 3 weeks, the bed itself was chewed through and stuffing removed. I am really disappointed in this pad. I'm not sure how it is a rated a level 2 on chewability. At any rate, I have to apply my "credit" for note you only get 1 replacement bed) towards the replacement of this bed (and purchase of a Cujo Cot.
Dog Lover: Kelley A.
Our puppy chews through every bed that we have given her whenever we leave the house. So far so good, I just wish the outside was a little softer and more comfortable for her but I guess that's why she hasn't been able to chew through it. Definitely recommend this bed!
Dog Lover: Meghan R.
Excellent product! Our beagle puppy chewed through 4 crate pads before I ordered this one, wish I had done it sooner! The fabric feels like outdoor patio chair covers, but the pad is soft. Super quick delivery, too. Thank you!
Dog Lover: Alexis.
Only took my Weimaraner a week and the bed had a few holes in the middle. I wil say I was hopeful after looking at the construction and material, but it didn't pass the test. It must be worth something because there was blood where he was nibbling. Thankful for the warranty because I'll just use it for my other dog. On to the Cujo Cot I suppose!
Dog Lover: David R.
So far so good! We've had the pad now for a week and no chewing!!! We've been through many pads for our labradoodle pup, and this one has already far out-lasted all the others!
Dog Lover: Karen.
I have 3 dogs and have 3 crate pads small,medium, X large. 1 a puppy that eats the stuffing out of toys, beds, and crate pads from Pet Smart. She also chews the fur off tennis balls and nibbles holes in the rubber balls. She was able to get her teeth into the K9 crate pad and with a couple of pictures of the holes emailed to K9 Ballistics a new pad was on its way. She still removes the stuffing from her toys to get the squeaky but has not chewed into any of the others. Great service.
Dog Lover: Paul.
We have a 6 month Vizsla puppy that is an intense chewer. He's chewed through every blanket & bed we've put in his crate. I bought the TUFF crate pad 2 months ago & our puppy has not even put a hole in it! So far the bed pad is holding up well! I highly recommend this to anyone that needs a chew proof crate pad :)
Dog Lover: Megan.
This bed is awesome! My pup shredded his first bed so I decided to pull out the big guns and order a TUFF bed. My pup immediately tried to shred this new bed like the old with no luck he wore himself out and took a long nap (bonus!). I definitely recommend this bed if you have a pet that is a chewer!
Dog Lover: Alfredo.
I bought 3 of these for my dog pack that chew anything not nailed to the floor! I have spent too much money on beds that are chewed and then I end up tossing away. So far, these TUFF bed crate pads have held up!! Easy to clean! The only thing I don't like is that the crate pads have so much static electricity and attract all the dog hair. So, I am making pillowcases for them!!
Dog Lover: susan.
The website order was easy. The delivery came quickly. After the bed arrived, it took only 1.5 days for my two 10 month old border collies to chew through the material. I immediately contacted k9ballistics and a replacement is on the way. I was hoping for better luck with the 1st delivered item and I am hoping for better luck with the replacement. So far customer service has been very helpful.
Dog Lover: Jim.
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.
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.
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 water resistant, 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.
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 120 Chew Proof Warranty!
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 a hold 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.
We have a 120 Day Chew Proof Warranty on all Original, Round, Orthopedic, Mini Tuff Beds and TUFF Crate Pads. If your dog does manage to chew through one of 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!
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. Rounded corners and solid, well-sewn seams also greatly reduce the possibility of the dog grabbing hold of a weak seam.
Our beds are super-easy to clean! Make sure to wash on delicate and cold. Air dry or line dry are the best way to dry the bed. Heat drying it 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. 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.
Our TUFF Bed Crate Pad is a single sewn-closed unit that requires no assembly. Simply unpack and slip into your dog's crate or kennel, and you're good to go! This bed can also be used as a travel pad for long car rides, or even an afternoon at the park.
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!
