Built dog tough! When it comes to our dog beds, we don’t cut corners. Every single one of our products is made from only the highest-quality materials to ensure that your dog bed will last for years. Constructed of our own proprietary blend of 1680 denier Ripstop ballistic nylon, our TUFF series crate pads are the most chew-proof cushion beds available. These densely woven covers will resist tearing and scratching, and the Ripstop pattern of fibers prevents small holes from growing in size. A single Velcro closure under the pad replaces zippers to prevent any emergency zipper-related vet visits. The smooth, canvas-like texture of the pad allows dirt, fur, and liquids to slide right off, so cleanup is a breeze. Most messes can be simply wiped up with a damp towel, but the removable cover can be machine-washed whole in cold water on a delicate cycle if needed. The orthopedic mattress consists of a 1″ layer of memory foam (4.5 lb/sq in. density) atop a 1″ layer of dense support foam to reduce pressure on joints and keep your dog off the hard floor of the crate.
Experienced dog owners know that there’s nothing out there short of hard metal that’s truly chew-proof; dogs have been known to chew through Kevlar, sheetrock, and chain-link fencing, to name a few, but when it comes to a soft, pillow-style bed, our TUFF beds really are the toughest on the market. The Orthopedic TUFF Crate Pad has a Chew Proof Rating of 4 out of 5, meaning that it will stand up to 90% of chewers and works best for light or moderate chewers. The flexibility and thinness of this pad make it easier for a dog to pinch between its jaws, so it isn’t recommended for dogs that chew constantly when crated. For a heavy or persistent chewer, only our Cujo Cot Raised Aluminum bed will do (and yes, it can indeed be used in a wire crate). If you do have a dog that manages to damage this bed within the first 90 days of purchase, we’ll replace the cover once free of charge as per our Chew Proof Guarantee.
CHEW PROOF RATING: 4/5; this pad is intended for LIGHT or MODERATE chewers and will resist about 90% of chewing dogs. For an anxious or persistent chewer, we strongly recommend our Cujo Cot Raised Aluminum Bed
