What Are The Good Things About The Bed?

This is one of K9 Ballistics’ most popular chew resistant dog beds.

It is a bed designed for light to moderate chewing dogs, because it is made of rip stop fibres that are highly durable and intended to isolate rips to one part of the bed instead of letting them spread.

It is also resistant to scratching, water, hair, dirt, and odors, and can be easily wiped down or machine-washed for easy cleaning.

It is covered by a 90 day guarantee as of December 2017 where K9 Ballistics will send you one cover free of charge if your dog chews through it.

Make sure you read the guarantee and conditions when you purchase to see what the specific offer is when you buy. Conditions may change.

The bed can be used indoors or outdoors.

They are made of a 5 inch thick poly fiber fill for comfort and cushioning. There’s also in built mesh and channels inside the bed to increase ventilation and stop clumping of the fiber fill.

Comes in 4 sizes from Small which is 14 W x 24 L inches, up to XX Large which is 40 W x 68 L inches.

Comes in 9 different colors to match a wide range of inside decors and interior settings. 


What Could Be Improved?

The bed is not cheap – for the price, we would expect the bed to stand up to more than light to moderate chewers.

As of December 2017, there is a guarantee on the outside cover of the dog bed only. A full bed guarantee would be better.

The bed cover is easy to clean. But, if for example your dog pees on the bed, it can be harder to clean the inside of the bed.

What Are The Good Things About The Bed?

In our opinion, this is the best chew resistant dog bed on the market.

As of December 2017, it is covered by a chew guarantee – but check the offer and conditions on that guarantee yourself before you buy.

It’s an elevated bed made of an aluminium frame, with aluminium frame connections (not plastic), and the rip stop fibre fabric (durable and designed to prevent tears from spreading) in the middle that is soft for your dog to lay on.

It;s basically close to impossible for your dog to find any way to chew it.

It is also Water, Hair, Dirt, Tear and Odor Resistant, and is easy to wipe down or hose down – making it easy to keep clean.

The fabric and raised bed design make it good for ventilation.

It comes in 5 sizes all the way up to a 35 W x 50 L inch XXL size. The bed itself is 6 inches off the ground.

If you measure beforehand, you can get the right size to fit it in a dog crate if you want.

There’s 7 different neutral or vibrant colors for any indoor or outdoor setting.

This bed can be used indoors or outdoors.

The customer service is fantastic with this bed.


What Could Be Improved?

There’s honestly nothing major we would change with this bed

Some people will not like the higher price of this bed – but the price is a reflection of the quality and materials used 




K9 Ballistics TUFF Orthopedic Memory Foam Dog Bed 

View On Amazon

What Are The Good Things About The Bed?

Another bed meant to be chew resistant for light to moderate chewers, except this one has memory/orthopedic foam for support and comfort.

The foam is in 2 layers of solid foam, with a comfort and also a support layer. Comfort so your dog can get proper sleep, and support to take pressure off their bones and joints.

There’s a guarantee against flattening of the foam for 10 years – although check this at the time you buy for full conditions.

There’s also a guarantee against chewing for the bed cover.

There’s also an inner waterproof liner to protect against mess and liquids, and the outer rip stop ballistic material to protect against chewing, scratching and digging.

Comes in 5 sizes – from Small at 18 W x 24 L, to XX Large at 40 W x 68 L inches.

10 different colors available – both neutral and bright.


What Could Be Improved?

Although this bed is a good orthopedic and chew resistant hybrid, for what you pay for it, it’s not as durable as some people will like against chewing. But, it’s still stronger than most other orthopedic dog beds on the market

A better option might be the Big Barker Orthopedic Chew Resistant Dog Crate Pad (on Amazon), or the Cujo Cot above

It is unclear exactly where the foam is made and the quality of the foam – although at least it is solid/dense foam which is good




K9 Ballistics TUFF Dog Crate Pad

Although it’s not a dog bed, K9 Ballistics also do a dog crate pad.
