My 5 month old lab is teething terrible. So unfortunately we did need a replacement pad, but this company gave us no grief on getting us a new one ASAP and so far so good. This new one he has not been able to destroy. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone!
Dog Lover: laura lehman.
Yay, So far so good - Oz (shepherd rescue) has gone a little over 2 whole weeks without tearing this one up.
The previous record was 3 days and he did as much damage pawing as chewing. Hopefully we have a long term solution!
Dog Lover: Theresa Baker.
My 10-month-old chocolate lab has been a chewer since the day we brought him home. I tried getting what I thought was a "chew proof" crate pad for him from PetSmart. It lasted 2 days. I almost gave up trying to find a quality product, but then I found K9 Ballistics. We've had the TUFF Bed Crate Pad for about 2 weeks now, and it's perfectly intact. If you're wondering whether or not this product lives up to its description, you can stop wondering. It far surpasses expectations!

Our 6 year-old greyhound chewed up every type of pad we put in is crate. We have had the Tuffbed crate pad for a 2 weeks and so far, so good. No teeth marks, no tears. Guess it's a keeper!
Dog Lover: Melanie.
Our new crate pad seemed very well made and sturdy, but within an hour our Pit mix had chewed holes in it . She pulled out the stuffing and had it everywhere! This would be a great pad for the average dog, but we still haven't found a pad that "Polly" hasn't immediately destroyed.

We have been under puppy training period for our 4-5 month old Buddie (Huskimo Breed, Siberian Husky & American Eskimo mix). This crate bed is excellent and he sleeps very comfortably on it and does not chew it at all. It took him couple of days to get use to it though and sometime he was trying to scratch it with his paws but later on he stopped doing that.
Dog Lover: Vinay S.
Our puppy had tore up the first 2 crate beds we had gotten him so I searched out something more heavy duty. The price was a bit steep, but with the 90 day chew guarantee i went for it.
He hasn't even attempted to chew this bed so it wad worth the money.
The only downside is like a previous person wrote, the yellow logo is a bit of a target which he tried to chew the first few days. We now leave it upside down, but it's definitely the weak link of the pad.
Dog Lover: Ralph.
I bought 2 of the crate pads for my labs. One of the dogs is destructive, one is not. My destructive dog is doing her best to tear the pad up but has only so far managed to tear off the little paper tag. I'm only a week or two into owning these beds but so far I really like them and think they're holding up well! Thanks K9 Ballistics for making this product!
Dog Lover: Amanda C.
Nice bed - but it has a major weakness which could be avoided - the big bright yellow logo. We Immediately saw this and put it to the bottom, but after one day our 10 month old pup had flipped it and chewed off the label leaving a big hole. I suggest not compromising quality for advertising, make the bed without the label or find another way to put your logo on there. Great bed otherwise
Dog Lover: Warren.
So we had been through 5 or more beds and decided to try one of these beds and so far our dog has not chewed on it at all. We are thinking about getting another one soon.
Dog Lover: Brenda T.
Unfortunately our dog hates the pad. He couldn't get comfortable in his crate the first night we had the pad, kept turning in circles - trying to find "the spot" to settle in to and just couldn't. His constant movement and sound on the pad kept us awake most of the night. Needless to say the pad only lasted 8 hours in his crate and now we're out $60. Hopefully we can try and sell it to someone who will use it.
Dog Lover: Kristen B.
We bought two crate pads for our Golden Retriever puppy. Four months later, they are still in perfect condition, and he loves them. Very comfortable.
Dog Lover: Bridget.
Great bed, our 11 month old german shepherd destroyed 3 beds already. this one is great. I just washed it for the first time last night. WHAT A GREAT PRODUCT. !!! Thank you
Dog Lover: Andy.
Our 6 month old lab mix has ripped up everything, so the chew proof guarantee was very appealing. I sprayed the edges with bitter apple and so far, he hasn't tried to chew it. Also, he goes right into his crate to lie down now, so he must feel very comfortable.
Dog Lover: Jordan.
I have a 1 y.o. Shiba Inu and every new bed I put in her create she has ripped up. So far I haven't seen a scratch...time will tell though. Bed seems comfy and there isn't any corners or grooves for her to exploit. Hope it holds up because I feel like I found a winner :)
Dog Lover: Kyle.
This is the second bed I purchased. I had such great luck with the first one. My 'chewer' did not destroy her bed. I only found a slight nibble on the pad. Both dogs appear to enjoy the comfort of these well made, sturdy beds. Thanks for this product. It is excellent and works well for me and the girls!
Dog Lover: Diana Devine.
I have an 10 month old Doberman. She has chewed through my world! I received the crate pad with high hopes but she made a small hole the very first use. I really liked the pad so I made a paste of red chile pepper and soaked the hole ( really was a small hole) for a couple of days. The pad is doing just fine no more holes and I am a happy camper. Good product.
Dog Lover: Indra Smith.
the tuff bed crate pad has held up to our 80lb rott better than other beds we have tried He chewed 2 holes in the outer rim in the first week then i flipped it over and he chewed 1 more hole in the rim but it has been over a month now and he has not chewed no more holes in it.
Dog Lover: darren .
Sunny has been using it for 2 weeks now and not a scratch , she destroyed 2 other competitors mats in 5 days prior to that. We are very impressed at this point !!!
Dog Lover: Kevin Green.
I bought the Tuff Bed for our GSD puppy who had gone through many other beds and this one is holding up great!
Dog Lover: Terry.
15 minutes after I put my Boykin Spaniel in his crate for the night, this brand new pad was ripped open. The company did honor the warranty by offering a replacement, which is pointless considering the next one would be destroyed too. Instead, I took a 50% refund. A waste of money if you truly need something that will last.
Dog Lover: Janet.
great bed, easy to clean, tough material resists chewing, mine made a start of a hole, quickly sprayed it with vinegar and cured the problem. So far so good, happy with my purchase at this time.
Dog Lover: Erin.
Our 15 month old pitbull mix is a heavy chewer and destroys everything she gets her mouth on. We have tried other crate pads, and they only lasted a few hours before she destoyed them. As soon as we got the K9 Ballistics crate pad, she managed to nibble a small hole in the end, but the company happily shipped out a replacement pad immediately. Now, several weeks later, the oringal pad only has the initial hole, and the replacement pad is still like new.
Dog Lover: Andrew.
Yay! I can't tell you how thrilled I am with this crate pad! My 1-year old German shepherd has chewed, shredded, torn up, or eaten every other bed he's ever had. This one has not a single hole! He's sleeping soundly through the night again, so he thanks you too!
Dog Lover: Lori.
I ordered the crate pad, not for a chewer but, for our 10 year old lab who with arthritis. The pad fits her XXL crate perfect and the tan color helps hide all her shedded hair. It is very high quality, but very noisy due to the material type. It's easy to just vacuum off or wash if needed. I'm going to order a 2nd for our small hybrids.
Dog Lover: LAURA.
I had high hopes for this product but was disappointed when I came home and found stuffing all over her crate. I have an 8 month old St. Bernard mix who loves to destroy her toys and the only ones that last are the "Bonga" ones. I am glad the pad came with a warranty as it was not cheap! I really thought it would work.
Dog Lover: Diane.
Really like my new crate pad, makes a very comfortable bed.
Dog Lover: joe.
I purchased 2 of these crate pads for my girls who have chewed everything that goes in their crates. Though my boxer mix did make small holes in hers, the Boston terrier mix's is still intact. I notified the company and received 2 new crate pads at no cost with no questions asked. Couldn't ask for better customer service.
Dog Lover: Tara.
We have been through easily $1000 in dog beds over the past 2 years - no joke! We purchased one TUFF bed and it has lasted quite some time and not even a single stitch has come undone! We loved it so much that after our next dog bed got destroyed we replaced that one with a TUFF Bed Crate Pad. They are worth every cent!
Dog Lover: Sarah.
Roxi really likes the Crate Pad. Has not chewed it up at the time of this review. To me that indicates she likes it.
Dog Lover: Mark.
These are not made thick enough.!st one lasted less than an hour toatally shredded in half-they did send out replacement.That lasted about the same shredded and cut in half less than a day-these should be made a lot thicker to prevent tearing-they would last then very thin material.
Dog Lover: Unhappy.
My Shepherd mix managed to chew a tiny hole into it within the first week but other than that has stood the test of time( a couple of months) which is great in our multiple dog household. Dogs seem very comfortable on it. Easy to clean, big plus! Thank you K9 : )
Dog Lover: Christian.
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.
Dog Lover: Jaci.
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!!!
Dog Lover: nancy.
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.
Dog Lover: BigKim.
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.
K9 Ballistics Response -
Please send a photo of the damage to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll send a replacement as soon as possible!
Dog Lover: tracy petersen.
Our K9 ballistics bed we ordered for our small dogs has worked wonderfully. Our boxer, on the other hand, has went through two K9 ballistic beds. She has chewed holes in both of them. We replaced the first bed recently and it wasn't even 1 week until she had a hole chewed in it.
Dog Lover: Vana Davis.
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.
Dog Lover: bob b.
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.
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.
Dog Lover: Rochelle Kraft .
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!
