Lucy, our 5 month old black Lab has chewed through everything we had put in her crate...as well as bones and toys. 3 crate mats (1 referred to as indestructible... whoa??). So when I saw the k9ballistics, I just knew it would work. We put it alongside her "bed" for a week, then put it in her crate. Occasionally she "moves it around", but doesn't chew it...or if she does there are no breaks in the fabric. THANK YOU k9!!!

I just wanted to thank you for a great product and support. We took in a couple dogs recently that were badly beaten and starved by their previous owner. The German Shepard has separation anxiety badly as owner locked her in basement for a week or so at a time with no food or water...I bought your crate pad and she did tear it up a little...When I advised your representative you sent us a new one at no charge....Thank You
Dog Lover: Kevin W.
We were disappointed because the initial pad we received was damaged.. No worries though. We contacted K9Ballistics and they shipped us out a replacement plus a complimentary pad and toy for our trouble. Great customer service and great product!! We've been using the bed for about 2 weeks. No issues at all. Our 5 month old dobe hasn't chewed or damaged it at all and it fits great in the crate! Thumbs up for this one!
Dog Lover: Abby.
Unfortunately, our lab/bulldog mix tore two separate holes within 24 hours. She simply cannot resist the soft stuffing....

Had a problem with my Pitbull chewing through beds 4 in 2 months, did research, purchase k9 ballistics
He dosnt try anymore after first 10 minutes!!!!!

I bought the crate pad for my granddog Mason. My daughter Dawn Beauford, had tried everything, and he would shread it all. She had heard about our crate pads, so I bought it for Mason. And I have to tell ya, He tried only a few min and thought enough of this, and hasn't touched it again. He now will go in his crate to play with his toys. Who would have thought that, not me. Love the product. And will buy again for my other granddog Daisy.

Our 2 year old Beagle has chewed through every pad we have had in her crate until the Tuff Crate Pad! wish we wouldve bought it sooner! Go by the size measurements not the description name. Our 20lb Beagle is in a medium size crate but needed the Toy crate pad, kind of misleading but I did email them and they were helpful in guiding me to the correct size
Dog Lover: Amanda M.
My puppy is 10 months old and a very aggressive chewer she had a quarter sized hole in 2 places the first night. I like it and it was a small hole. She hadn't really touched it since, no new holes.
Dog Lover: Katie.
I received the crate pad I ordered on a Saturday. The next day I put the dog in his crate with the new pad and left the house for two hours. When I got back he had chewed the corners open and started pulling the stuffing out. I don't know if the beds hold up better than the crate pads, but I do not endorse the crate pads. Was a waste of money in my opinion.
Dog Lover: CHARLES GROCE.
tuff bed crate pad seems as advertised.
puppy does not try to chew it as he has with other pads and though he does scratch/dig at it, the material does not even show scratch marks.
a very good product.
a puppy problem solved.
Dog Lover: Margie.
Great item. New 8 mos old lab pup who's previous owner didn't care for her properly said she didn't like sleeping with anything in her crate. That's because the pad was a piece of junk, too small and dirty. I threw it away. She loves her crate pad and sleeps in it perfectly. Easy to vacuum as well. thanks!
Dog Lover: Donna.
So far so good- our rescue pup who has so far destroyed every dog bed, blanket and pillow in our house has not been able to make a mark on the crate pad. She has tried and failed. A definite win!
Dog Lover: Randi.
Wow. We have purchased 3 different crate mats for our growing boy who LOVES to chew. I have come home only to find the other crate mats have been destroyed and ripped to shreds. I could not believe that this TUFF crate pad is still here to keep my pooch company. Absolutely no holes, no tears or marks on this thing. AMAZING!!
Dog Lover: Anastasia.
Thought this might work for my 2 year old GSD sadly it lasted
2 days :(
Dog Lover: Madelyne.
Have only had the puppy for a few days, but the mat is nice and soft and fills the crate.
Dog Lover: Tracey.
My dog (7 mos. old Lab) is in love with his new crate pad bed. We previously had some foam padding with a slip cover on it for easy washing - but he chewed off the zipper and then destroyed the foam twice. He tried to chew the TUFF Bed Crate Pad the first hour or so that it was in the crate and then stopped/gave up. He whimpers just to get inside his crate to be on the bed. It has well surpassed my expectations and I am a happy dog owner knowing he is comfy in his crate.
Dog Lover: Kim B.
We received our Tuff Bed Crate Pad on July 5, 2014. It held up to our 18 month old Jack Russell Terriers for exactly 4 days. They were left alone with the mat for 3 hours and managed to chew two holes in it and de-stuff the outer rim around the holes. Since then, they have added two more holes and lots of stuffing around our house. This mat is headed to the trash bin; the same as similar less expensive mats. Does anyone have a mat that holds up to Jack Russell pups??
Dog Lover: Diane Clark.
In 3 months, Scout, my italian greyhound has destroyed every mat, bed, blanket, that I have put in her crate. I ordered Your crate mat, hoping it would be strong enough to withstand her chewing. Received it last Wednesday, and in less than 24 hours she had chewed 3 holes and pulled out the stuffing. Sent an email with photos on Sunday, still waiting on a replacement, and have bought the bitter apple spray to try on the second one. Fingers crossed !!!
Dog Lover: Barbie.
I was very excited about receiving the TUFF Crate Pad for my Border Collie. However, I was disappointed to find that she had chew through the first one in 2 days and the replacement in 1 day. The staff was very helpful in sending my replacement, and the bed fit well in her crate and was easy to clean. It is just definitely NOT chew resistant.
Dog Lover: Tara.
I put the large size Tuff bed pad in my Rottweiler puppy's crate and within a week, she had chewed five holes in it and had stuffing everywhere. It might be tough for a smaller breed dog, and I thought it would work, but it didn't for me. I would go with the toughest durability for a larger breed dog.
Dog Lover: Sue.
This is a great quality crate mat that our dog has not been able to destroy like the others. Highly recommend!
Dog Lover: Cathy.
Nicely made bed for our bed chewer, who doesn't seem to be interested in chewing on this particular bed. He likes dragging it around, given half a chance, but no damage done to it.
Dog Lover: Francesca .
I have a Papillon that can chew through any crate pad. So far this one has held up. I like it so much I order another larger one for her as well. So glad to finally find something that will hold up.
Dog Lover: Robin N.
Sturdy and comfortable, these K9 Ballistics crate pads are the only ones I'll use for my aggressive chewers. I first tried this bed after my Lila (at the time a 10-month-old pit bull mix) tore through every other type of bedding I placed in her crate -- no matter how comfortable or "chew-proof" it was. She's had her K9 Ballistics pad for 11-1/2 months now, and the worst my "Extreme Kong killer" has been able to is place a few small holes in the reinforced outer edging.
Dog Lover: Karen O.
I had high hopes for the crate pad that I purchased from you, bu,t unfortunately, I am disappointed. I have had the crate pad for a 1 1/2 weeks and was gradually introducing my dog to the new pad...no long extended periods left alone in the crate with the new pad. But after only three times, he had chewed a hole in one of the corners and pulled out the stuffing. Bitter Apple did not deter him from going after it again after the initial chewing incident.
Dog Lover: Gail M.
This is a very well made pad. Our Labrador puppy has been through two bed pads from other companies, she pulled out the stuffing in days - this one remains untouched. Looks great, my only suggestion would be to add some more girlie colours to your collection, polka dots/stripes etc.
Dog Lover: Caroline P.
Just when I thought my Brittany was going to have to forever spend his daytimes on the hard plastic floor of his crate (he was a bed destroyer!) - I came upon your TUFF Bed Crate Pad!! After reading the testimonials of satisfied customers, decided to give it a try and WOW - it really is indestructible! Now, Cooper and I both are VERY happy!!
Dog Lover: Phyllis U.
We purchased this pad for our Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy who would chew up anything else in about 5 minutes. She has had it about 1 month now and happy to say not one tear or piece of stuffing out. Awesome!
Dog Lover: Susan.
Thought this might be just the solution for our Ninja bed-chewer golden retriever but within minutes of laying on his new crate pad he had gnawed his way through and got to the stuffing inside.
Dog Lover: Kristen.
Our dog 30 lb chew machine chews everything she can get a hold of. She was down to sleeping on a flannel sheet in her crate. With the TUFF crate pad she has tried to chew it, but it has held up wonderfully. I am so pleased she is more comfortable while sleeping. Was skeptical at first that it would work because I had spent so much money on different crate pads and beds but I am a believer now. Thank you
Dog Lover: Teri H.
My Feist Breed dog kept chewing & pulling stuffing during the night from his original crate bed & I sewed it up so many times! Finally he just had to sleep on a towel.
Ordered the k9ballistics Crate Pad & am so pleased. So far he doesn't even chew on it. So happy & he sleeps comfortably!
Dog Lover: Sharla.
I REALLY wanted this bed to work out, I've spent much $$$ on dog beds, but, unfortunately the TUFF bed crate pad didn't. My 1 yr old Doodle mix (60 #) tore a hole in it on day 4. Took him 3 days for side 2. In lieu of getting a replacement, I'm going to see if I can get a credit for a cot bed. I purchased a cot bed for my 55# terrier at the same time I purchased the TUFF crate bed for my second dog. She has yet to make a dent in her cot, but it is $$$. HTH
Dog Lover: Paula D.
I purchased this dog bed for my new puppy Molly. She's a german shepherd/border collie mix. This girl loves to dig and chew! She's tried to dig and chew through this crate bed every night. We've had the bed for over 2 weeks now and no damage whatsoever! Plus she sleeps through the night because it is so comfy and I can barely get her to come out of her crate in the morning. :)
I would highly recommend this product for any dog owner. It's well worth the money!
Dog Lover: Lori S.
We love the crate pad and also K9 Balistics. True to their word, when one of our dogs chewed holes in the pad, we had a replacement in no time. We've had a few accidents and were thrilled when all we had to do was hose down the pad and leave it in the sun. Definitely would recommend it.
Dog Lover: Diane G.
My breed is usually pretty easy on doggy beds until one came along who is a very destructive chewer! I ordered the K9 Ballistic bed for her and lo and behold, she managed to chew off a corner! Upon contacting the company they immediately responded and replaced and I am so impressed with this company I will recommend to everyone. The beds are really wonderful and I did take the tip of spraying some bitter apple and/or white vinegar and so far so good.
Dog Lover: Judi G.
Our dog had scratched and chewed his way through two crate beds. He is older and this was new behavior (letting us know he was upset). We bought this bed and with two dogs in a kennel, both scratchers and one chewing, we still have a new looking bed. WOW! Add free shipping and this is a must buy.
Dog Lover: molly.
Greta is a rescue dog and is a very aggressive chewer. I think is her stress reliever. She did make a small hole in this bed but is did take her a while. Customer Service had sent me an email to ask about the product and I had just relied that she did manage to chew a small hole in it. Before I knew it another bed was on it's way! Amazing! I will hold onto the new one, hoping the chewing phase will pass. Highly recommend this company! The bed is very nice quality. My dog is just a beast!
Dog Lover: Mrs. HAM.
I had high hopes for this crate pad. I have 3 original TUFF beds that neither of my younger dogs have destroyed. I purchased the crate pad because there is not a bed that fit the dimensions of the crate. Unfortunately, the pup destroyed the crate pad within mere hours. A replacement is on the way but I am not holding out hope for it, either. I will continue to buy from K9, just not the crate pads.
Dog Lover: Carrie Cannon.
So far- so good. My mini dachshunds have been able to eviscerate ever bed or pad I've bought within 24 hours. Eight days in and this one looks like the day it arrived. Here's hoping...
Dog Lover: d coco.
I have a 6 month old Pug that chews into any stuffed thing I give to him, or he has the good fortune to find. I had given up on having any kind of decent crate bed for his hour long commute to and from work with me everyday, until I found this one. He tried to chew through it several times, and finally gave up. I love the durability and quality I received in this product. I will be getting the home version bed for Wally now too! Can't say enough about the quality!
Dog Lover: Jeff K.
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!
