My 1-year-old malamute has destroyed (within minutes) every bed we've purchased for her. She's attempted to consume her new K9 Ballistics bed - managed a few minor pulls here and there, but has given up (at least so far, 3 weeks in and she still has a bed). So far, this bed has lived longer than all others.

We have a nine year old Min Pin who can be tough on crate beds. He likes to chew, and towels and soft beds generally take a beating. But after six weeks the Tuff Bed Crate Pad is holding up great. He has only managed to tear the small paper tag off it, but hasn't gotten anywhere with the bed. Good product.
Dog Lover: Steve Martin.
I got this crate pad ahead of adopting a dog, so I cannot review how the dog likes it, only to say it is very well made with superior materials and looks to be very comfortable. I have had an opportunity to see the crate pad she is currently using and I suspect she will be in heaven on the TUFF Bed Crate Pad.

This is a great matt, perfect size for my dogs kennel. unfortunately my 8 month old Pit Bull Terrier tore into this mat the first day. Thankfully there is a 90day chew proof guarantee warranty and so I will be returning it and trying out the Cujo mat.
Dog Lover: Bertina.
My twelve week old Lab loves his new bed. I was impressed with the great customer service and quality of their product

My pekinese has destroyed a number of beds, blankets and pads, including those of my other dog. I got her this one as a last resort, and so far it's working out. She enjoys lying on it but fairly quickly lost interest in trying to tear it up. It likely just doesn't have the type of texture that appeals to that activity, and there are no obvious starting spots, she usually picks a corner and goes from there. They are a little high in cost but I'll likely get another.

I wanted to let you know that after we had purchased many a dog beds over the years and threw them out after they were torn apart(usually within days), we are thrilled that this pad is still completely intact. This has been the best purchase ever for our Daisy. She has been sleeping more comfortably and we are not having to clean up filling in the morning nor having to worry about how much of it she ate during the night. Thank you so much for making a quality bed for our chewing dog.
Dog Lover: Stacy G.
got the pad quickly and used it immediatly. so far so good....its intact and Luna seems comfy!!! fingers crossed it remains in one piece!!!

We have an 11 year old blue heeler who is a chewer! He's eaten every other crate pad that we've bought but we've had this one for two weeks and so far so good! We've caught him a couple of times trying to chew/shred it but so far he's had no luck. Hopefully it'll hold up! Besides being chew-resistant, it's a very comfortable bed for him to lay on.
Dog Lover: Jo.
Was optimistic when I purchased the Tuff bed crate pad, but it only lasted 5 days. HAve taken photos and emailed warranty(you can not call company, they only except email???) and it has been 2 days and still no reponse. ALso the warranty is a little bogus, it states it is a 1x only warranty and only for 90 days. SO I guess they will send me a new pad?? Still waiting, andout 60 bucks,,
K9 BALLISTICS RESPONSEWe're sorry we didn't get your call yesterday! The warranty was processed via email and replacement TUFF Bed Crate Pad is being sent today.
Dog Lover: Erik.
I purchased the TUFF Crate Pad for our 9 yr old Lab. She has chewed every bed and blanket we've ever given her but wanted to try "one more thing". Unfortunately she got through the edging in half a day. Customer service was easy and a new pad was sent out right away. The new pad will go to our other dog who does not chew. Good product, just not for our Lab.
Dog Lover: Lisa.
I have not chewed on my crate pad. I liked zippers, but this does not have a zipper - fine with me because I get in trouble when I chew up my bed. It fits my kennel perfectly. With the winter we have been having I am in the kennel a lot. It is wonderful not to have to sleep on a hard kennel floor. Thank you for making an excellent product!
Dog Lover: Sadee.
I thought this was the solution I was looking for. My puppies eat everything. I put this very well made mat in the crate and within 24 hours (with the puppy being in and out) she chewed a nice hole in it. I left it in the to see if she would keep doing it or if it was a one time trying it out thing...nope. She kept going and ate a lot of stuffing, which she thankfully pooped out. Disappointed that it didn't work.
Dog Lover: Heather Turner.
My toy poodle has completely destroyed every bed I have purchased for him. I even tried dousing them with bitter spray and he still just chewed away. I decided to give the TUFF bed crate pad a try. It is WONDERFUL! He loves sleeping on it and hasn't even attempted to chew on it. Finally - A dog bed worth every penny.
Dog Lover: S.
Absolutely Freaking AWESOME! 1 year old Great Dane cant chew through, she finally gave up and enjoyed it!!! Thank You.
Dog Lover: Walt D.
I hope I am not jinxing myself, but my girl has chewed up five crate Pads, beds?!! She, has had this one for 2 weeks now, and so far just great! I added up all the money I spent on the others I should have just ordered this one! My Rhodesian Ridgeback is 105lbs. She has a big crate, but we were able to get the medium size, and it fits Perfect!!
Dog Lover: Trudilynne Pina.
LOVE our new TUFF bed crate pad!!! Even better, Chloe & Fergus love it too!!! Chloe is our 1 yr. old Boston Terrier - she has chewed through Kongs, the "indestructible" dog toys, etc. We are going on Week 4 and so far, so GREAT!!! Woo Hoo! Fergus, our 11 wk. old Golden Lab, is LOVING our new XL TUFF Bed. We couldn't be more pleased. Thanks for such a great product!!
- Chew Free & Resting well in Texas!!

Unfortunately Loki tore apart the crate pad the first evening we put her in the crate with it while we were at dinner.
Dog Lover: Ellen Thompson.
I purchased this crate mat for our almost 2 year old 110 pound lab mix who destroyed EVERY bed ever bought for him. I waited until the 90 day warranty period was up to write my review because I just knew he would chew it to shreds before 90 days..... Boy! was I wrong!! There is not a single chew mark on this mat!! Thank you K9 Ballistics for a crate mat made to last! Thinking I may purchase him a REAL bed to sleep on in the near future.
Dog Lover: Lisa Perry.
I got this bed about 3 weeks ago for my German Shepherd puppy after he had chewed up his first bed. He loves this one! Move it from room to room for him and he's always on it! Seems very durable and tough. Will definitely be ordering more from k9ballistics!
Dog Lover: Gabrielle D..
our 65 lb 9-month lab puppy loves it. Tried chewing a bit at first, but pretty much left it alone and now loves to sleep on it in his crate. He's not a crazy aggressive chewer but goes after anything new. Lesser pads didn't survive his initial test, this did fine (so far !)
Dog Lover: Joe .
My 10-month old puppy is fond of chewing everything. So far, so good with this bed. She hasn't even tried yet, despite destroying 5 other beds, 2 blankets and one sheet!
Dog Lover: Michelle.
This mat is a great dog bed. I loved it. The hound loved it.
It arrived on January 31st, then on February 17 he decided to chew on it. He's really not a chewer upper. Good product, but dogs will kill it if they want to.
Dog Lover: Perkins.
Unfortunately she chewed the label off in both places ...and did put a hole in it...its just her and the puppy stage...otherwise a good product...8 month old chessie
Dog Lover: Judy.
1.5yr old Siberian Husky had it torn up within 12 hours... The search continues...
Dog Lover: Matt.
So far… so good! Our 8 month old chocolate lab tore through another so called "indestructible bed" within a week. She loves it, it is comfy and she has tried to eat it but it hasn't come apart!
Dog Lover: Elyse Seckens.
This is great! My "puppy", a 100+ lb 1 yo yellow lab has destroyed everything in his crate, including the plastic pan in the bottom. But, he hasn't destroyed this!! He actually loves it so much he goes in his crate just to lay down now :) Great purchase and would recommend to anyone.
Dog Lover: BECKY.
I ordered two crate pads for my Rottweilers who have destroyed everything from my couch to her crate. After receiving the bed, over the course of a week my female had started putting small holes in hers. I emailed a photo and was sent a new crate pad! No hassle! There have been no holes since I received a new one!
I think they gave up after the first crate pad! I am extremely pleased!
Dog Lover: Claudia .
My Beagle hound tried his best to get this mat out of his sleeping cage. I kept it, he adjusted . He's a rough Boy, however he has yet to try any destruction. I'd have a hard time believing any dog tearing up one. It's very well sewn, looks good, glad I bought it. The mat is worth having. His cage is 41X27 this fit perfect. When I save up, I may get the Boy what I wanted. J.
Dog Lover: Jim.
I love this product for my border collie mix (45#) She only goes after the crate pad occasionally, but it's taken her a year to finally tear a small hole in the corner. She must have caught the fabric just right because it has suffered multiple punctures no problem. I have actually seen her with the pad in her teeth pulling while she stands on it with no tearing. Also washes really easily, light weight (won't throw the washer off balance) and dries quickly.
Dog Lover: Tiffany L..
Our 11 month old bulldog has chewed threw 4 dog crate pads - 2 which were touted as "chew proof". She chewed this one up to, unfortunately. So I guess we're destined to never having an intact crate pad.
Dog Lover: Jill Piwko.
I highly recommend this company, not only for their outstanding customer service, but for the quality of the Tuff bed. You can't go wrong with K9 Ballistics. They are true to their word.
Dog Lover: Jean Lyons.
(...) She scratched and chewed her other pad in her crate and ate the fuzz from it. (...) With all the vet bills and hospital stays it ended up costing me $3,100. Wish I would have known about this crate pad before, it would have made both of our lives a lot easier and I wouldn't have had the stress of worrying about her for 3 weeks over the Christmas holiday. This pad has been a life saver.
Dog Lover: Gloria A.
I have a 20-25lb 7 month old Welsh Corgi who managed to chew through his first crate pad. True to their word, K9 sent me a replacement within a week. I tried a light coating of vinegar that I dried.. that plus some good luck (or maturing puppy) the pad is intact and working well. These pads are sturdy, easy to wipe and enough cushion to provider some comfort in the crate. A good buy.
Dog Lover: Robert.
Was impressed with pad quality. Used in dog house. On 2nd day our Miniture Australian Shepherd chewed through the cover near the label. I used automotive weatherstrip cement and duck tape to cover the hole. No more problem.
Dog Lover: C P Palmer.
I purchased a K9 crate pad for my male Goldendoodle when he was about 9 months old because he chewed up every pad I had ever given him. he is now 13 months old and the pad is as good as new. I've washed it and have been so pleased with it I ordered another one so he can have a spare for when I wash his old one.

My Carly dog went through three beds in two months. She is a marathon chewer like I've never seen before! So far she hasn't been able to do anything to tgis bed. It certainly has lasted longer than any other. I'm hoping I bought my last dog bed!
Dog Lover: Erica.
Although I had high hopes for this liner when I saw it and felt the material, my little Pomeranian mix was able to chew several holes in it. I have now resorted to regularly spraying bitter apple on it and it seems to have helped a bit.
Dog Lover: Sandy.
This is the second mat we have purchased and are just as happy with this one as the first. Our dog has destroyed anything we have thought of the put in his cage until we found this product. It is indestructible and well worth the money. Would recommend this to anyone.
Dog Lover: Dennis Liontis.
Finally, a solution for my Boxer. First, the company is terrific to work with. I will get products from them again and reccomend them highly. I did use Bitter Apple to discourage chewing and so far so good. Finally I have a comfortable, sturdy crate pad and I am very satisfied. Prompt, reliable and honest all are adjectives for K9 Ballistics.
Dog Lover: Elizabeth Barone.
Alert: We're currently experiencing low inventory on the Small and Medium TUFF Bed Crate Pads in all colors! The team intends to make this product option available again the week of March 24th. Sign up for our Inventory Alert Newsletter to be notified the minute it is in stock.
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!
