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.

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.

My dog chewed through the cover the first day. Not impressed and not happy to be out $50.00.

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!!

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.
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.

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...

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.
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 .
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.
When the crate pad arrived, it measured two inches less than stated on the website and shipping information (33" vs. 35"). I had ordered the small pad thinking the medium might be too big for the crate. The pad lasted about a week before our 1 year old Dalmatian completely shredded the corner of the crate pad. To summarize: not impressed: the crate pad was not the stated size, and was not chewproof.
Dog Lover: Tina Reynolds.
My german shephard Princess has tried and tried to chew and scratch the Tuff pad with no success. She seems to be very content with it. She even goes into her crate during the day to sleep on it. Thanks for a great product.
Dog Lover: Anna B.
Wonderful product! Excellent customer care! Fast delivery!

My German Shorthair Archie says, "This new bed isn't any fun! My claws just slide off, my teeth don't have anything to dig into. It isn't anything like the fleecy bed I used to have. That one, you could claw the fuzz off the flat part and bite great mounds of white fluff off the bolster part. This new bed came packed with a bouncy orange tennis ball. I add the fuzz of that instead."

I have a 1 year old large breed puppy. He had chewed up every bed I ever purchased for him. We've had this crate pad for a couple weeks now and he hasn't even TRIED to chew it. Not only does it seem like it could withstand chewing pretty well, but I think there's something about the material that he just doesn't find as attractive.
Dog Lover: Jaclyn E.
I purchased the Large TUFF Crate Pad a few weeks ago and am shocked that there isn't a single mark on it. My 1 year old German Shepherd has completely shredded every bed I've ever put in his crate, so I was pretty skeptical. I am pleasantly surprised that he hasn't been able to do a bit of damage to this crate pad. The material is awesome. The pad seems very comfortable and it is very easy to just vacuum the hair off of it. I will definitely be recommending this product to my friends.
Dog Lover: Jess.
We have a 2 year old American Bulldog. He ate the blanket in his crate and the cover on top of his crate and the matting under his crate. He has been using the Tuff Bed for about a month and hasn't put a mark on it. It's comfy enough that he uses it over other cushions outside of his crate too. It is well worth the money. We really recommend them.
Dog Lover: Kate.
DO NOT BUY THIS BED! My dog easily and quickly chewed a hole in the side in about 10 minutes. If you read their return policy you see that you can only get 50% of your money back. What a racket!!!!!!!!
Dog Lover: Diane.
Bought this for a relative's 9 week old Golden Retriever puppy that was chewing everything. The puppy never even attempted to chew it. It's a miracle! Easy to clean. Quality product.
Dog Lover: Suzanne.
I had never purchased a crate pad because my bulldog's trainer had told me not to. He said they were unnecessary and they were a temptation to chew on. I should have listened. In spite of the fact it was made really well my dog managed to put a hole in it on the second day. I really liked the quality of the pad, the color was just as I imagined but I no longer have it as I took it out of the crate after he chewed the 2 inch hole in the edge of it. :-(

My 2 year old pit-mix has chewed through every bed we have ever bought for her crate, except this one! The Medium size is a little large for her crate but she moves it around to her liking. Excellent quality, durable and very comfortable.
Dog Lover: Kristen.
my job recently moved from san francisco to fremont and i leave at 630 am instead of 830am. my dog did not like this one bit. so she shredded one bed after another to illustrate this displeasure . she is 11 1/2 so she has to have some padding under her. so i googled indestructible beds and learned of your product. i would be shocked if maggie could destroy this - fingers crossed. thank you !!!!!
Dog Lover: amy n.
I bought 2 of these for my pitbulls. After going through multiple beds they would tear apart in less than a few hours these have held up longer than most. They have scratched and chewed on them since they got them and theres no signs of any wear at all. great beds
Dog Lover: joe.
I have 2 pitbull puppies and they are heavy chewers. My female "Fiona" has destroyed our couch, shoes, stuffed animals, and every single towel, blanket and bed that I put in her crate! I finally invested and purchased two crate pads. That was 3 weeks ago and these beds are still intact!! They are so easy to clean and are a lot more comfortable than you might think. I would recommend these beds in a heartbeat - worth every penny!
Dog Lover: Lauri Weingartz.
Liked the bed but unfortunately was not tough enough for our 10 month old shorthair. He had it chewed first time in the kennel with it.
Dog Lover: Kathy G.
Unfortunately, my 45 pound mutt ate this one, too!
Dog Lover: Anna.
I purchased the xl crate tuff bed for my 3 year old golden. First day she slept on it whe tried scratching it up and rolling around on it and after a few minnutes she got comfy and relaxed. She absolutly loves her tuff bed! Its not too thick and not too soft its just right for her. It fits a big dog crate percectly and i look forward to get lots of use out of it.
Dog Lover: Andrew.
So far, so good! My Cavalier King Charles Spaniel likes to destroy her pads through the seams to pull out the stuffing.
I took a star off because although she was unsuccessfull to destroy this pad, I noticed that she was biting on her TUFF crate pad where the laundry care tag and TUFF label was located. I removed both and now she has given up as she can't get through the pad to it's insides as usual.
Dog Lover: R Y.
We have a 1 year old German Shepherd who chews up everything but concrete. We got this bed to see how she would do. The first day, she chewed on it a few times, and pulled it around a little, but after sleeping on it once, she stopped playing and chewing it. The bed has no holes, rips or tears. She loves sleeping on it.
Dog Lover: DWilliams.
So far its great. It the only thing my black lab has NOT chewed on!
Dog Lover: Sandra.
We own a 85lb German Shorthair Pointer who loves to chew his previous beds. Once I put his K9 Tuff Bed Crate Pad in he has not tried to chew on it once. The only thing I would like to see is more padding. I would purchase another one, very good quality. I put a blanket underneath the crate pad for more support and, he hasn't chewed on it yet.
Dog Lover: CHERI.
I bought this pad for my 10 month old jack russell. When i received it I put it in her crate and within 10 minutes she had chewed a hole in one corner. I sent the picture of the chewed pad to K9 ballistics and they were prompt in sending a replacement. However, I cannot use this pad in her crate. I don't believe there is a pad made that she cannot destroy. I will give the company high marks for their prompt response. Do not expect this pad to be indestructable.
Dog Lover: Joanne.
So far, so good...my Boxer puppy has not chewed thru it yet...keeping my fingers crossed. Very happy with the bed so far.
Dog Lover: Marsha.
My dog is 4 years old. I am amazed that he has not chewed any wholes. I've been through several dog beds, comforters, sheets and towels. For the first time I don't have to worry about him choking or ruining his bed. I am truly amazed and highly recommend this product. I wish I found it years ago!
Dog Lover: Beth W.
Fits perfectly in the crate and my German Shorthair hasn't damaged it yet. Now THAT'S a quality product!
Dog Lover: Trent.
Thank you for coming up with your wonderful material for your beds and pads. The pad is comfortable as well as being "chew-proof"; at last a pad that will last more than a day!
Dog Lover: Marty.
My two little Boston Terriers (or is it Terrors?) love to 'de-stuff' things and this has been resistant to all their attempts! They like this pad- it has plenty of filling, and it stays looking nice even after a lot of use. It's exactly what I was hoping for.
Dog Lover: Betsy C.
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!!!
Dog Lover: CJH.
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!
