Designed to Last a Lifetime

Eco-Benefits & Durability:

Ballistic Fabrics: Our products are designed to last longer. Buying less often leads to a smaller carbon footprint…less energy used, less fuel burned and fewer materials in the landfill all lead to a cleaner planet. Spending a little more money upfront means you have access to products that can last a lifetime. A little more money spent initially is going to get you a better-quality product and one which will last a lot longer. Our fabrics are easily spot cleaned. This helps save water which would otherwise be used in the laundry process.

Orthopedic Foam Pillow: Our CertiPUR-US solid foam pillows are cut to size in our own facilities. We’ve invested in special cutting machines to be able to do this. Cutting ourselves allows us to use 100% of the foam we purchase. After cutting our orthopedic mattresses, we take the smaller, otherwise un-usable pieces of foam and shred them into smaller consistent size pieces using another specialized piece of equipment we had made specifically for this process. We then use it in our nesting beds to create a more comfortable and breathable mattress than using fiber. It also helps us realize our goal of ZERO WASTE Manufacturing.

More Information:

Sized to work with all Armored Frames

Made from our Ballistic rip-stop fabric with a DRW (durable water repellant) finish, waterproof & non-skid backing, this 2" thick, pillow headrest is sized to work with any armored products. The strap is made to fit perfectly around the corresponding sized armored frame to hold it securely. It also has 2 anchor point tie downs to prevent it from sliding when used with any crate armored frame.

The pillow headrest resists scratching, hair, dirt, and moisture. Perfect for indoor and outdoor use in all seasons. Easy spot clean. This pillow is not backed by our warranty chew-proof guarantee, due to the fact that it is very easy for your dog to lift the edges into their mouth. This is a comfort product designed to last a lifetime, it is not recommended for persistent chewers.

 *Although we strive to make the strongest, most durable, and safest products available for our pups, experienced pet parents must understand that a determined persistent chewer can eventually get through almost anything. As with any product you give your dog, if they have a history of destroying or ingesting objects, supervision is highly recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a Chew Proof Armored or Tough Rip-Stop dog bed?

If you have a persistent chewer, or a dog that chews heavily at their bedding, you need a Chew Proof Armored bed. The all-metal frame and lack of vulnerable spots means these beds will hold up against even the most determined destroyers. If your dog doesn’t chew so much but does like to dig at their bed or drag it around the yard, then a Tough Rip-Stop bed is a good option. The ballistic Rip-Stop cover will resist scratching, tearing, and roughhousing.

What if my dog does manage to chew up this bed?

We offer a 120-day warranty on both our Chew Proof Armored and Tough Rip-Stop series of beds. If your dog manages to damage one of these beds within the warranty period, we’ll replace the cover once, free of charge. For items that do not have removable covers, we’ll send out a full replacement. If you don’t want a replacement, we can issue you store credit for its value instead, which can be applied towards a different item on our site.

What are the Tough bed covers made from?

Our covers are made from 1200 denier ballistic fabric. This heavy-duty material resists tearing and punctures and will hold up much better against destructive behaviors than traditional bed covers. The grid-like Rip-Stop weave is an additional feature that further reinforces the strength of the fabric by preventing small tears or punctures from growing. An additional waterproof backing and water repellent coating helps protect the bed from moisture and spills.

What are the mattresses made from?

Our pillow and orthopedic mattresses are both made in the USA from CertiPUR-US certified foam. It’s made without ozone depleters, heavy metals, or formaldehyde and has low VOC emissions for indoor air quality. Orthopedic mattresses use solid foam to provide firm, dense support, while pillow mattresses are filled with shredded foam to provide a softer cushion that your dog can sink down and nestle into.

Are your car seat covers and other accessories also chew proof?

The only chew proof items we have are our Chew Proof Armored dog beds; accessories such as the dog leashes, collars, crate covers, and car seat covers are not chew proof or chew-resistant and should not be left unattended with a destructive dog. They are, however, made from extremely durable materials to resist wear and tear and hold up to heavy use, and they’ll last you a very long time.

Can I personalize my bed cover?

Yes, we offer embroidery on all products with removable covers. We offer several different colors of thread to choose from.

How do I know what size is best for my dog?
Is there any kind of assembly required for these beds?

Most of our beds have a removable cover. When the bed is first received, open the plastic wrapping of the mattress, allow it to expand, and then slide it into the cover and seal the closure. Orthopedic mattresses may need to be folded in half before you can slide them into the cover; they fill out the cover completely, so it can be a tight fit. Beds without separate covers, such as the Tough Crate Pad or Mini Tough Bed, only need to be unrolled from their packaging before they’re good for use. Our Ballistic Chew Proof cots come pre-assembled, and only need to have the legs screwed into the corners before they can be used.

How do I clean the bed?

Our beds are super easy to clean. All of our covers are machine-washable in cold water on a delicate cycle. Seal all Velcro or zipper closures before washing. Tumble dry on low heat or air dry. Orthopedic foam mattresses cannot be washed, but can be deodorized with baking soda. Beds without removable covers, such as the Tough Crate Pad and Mini Tough Bed, can be machine-washed whole. Please note that large and extra-large beds are not recommended in a household dryer but can be hosed off or washed in a commercial/industrial washer.

How will my dog's bed be shipped?

All orders are shipped via FedEx Home Delivery. Please note that since FedEx Home Delivery does not deliver to P.O. Boxes, you will need to provide a physical address when ordering so that we can ship the order out to you.

When will my dog's bed arrive?

Most orders ship within 2-3 business days and will arrive 3-5 days after processing. Personalized embroidery items take a little longer to prepare. 

Do you offer expedited shipping?

At this time we are unable to offer expedited options. If you need your order by a certain date, please contact us before placing the order to confirm that we can ensure delivery in time.

How do I correct, cancel, or return my order?

To cancel an order, please submit a Support Form with “Cancel/Change Order” as reason for inquiry. Please include your order number in the body or subject line of the email to help us resolve the issue right away. Since orders often ship the same day they are placed, it is important to contact us as soon as possible so that we can stop the order before it ships. Once the order is picked up we cannot cancel the order, but we can initiate a return. Please be aware that if the order has embroidery, it cannot be canceled, returned, or exchanged once the embroidery is complete.

Why don't you ship to Hawaii or Alaska? What about international orders?

We apologize for the inconvenience, but due to the shipping costs involved we currently do not ship outside the 48 contiguous continental United States. For Alaska, Hawaii, US territories, FPO/APO and international addresses, please consider a forwarding service like reship.com to have the order delivered to you.

I tried to place an order, but I got a “gateway transaction” error. Now there’s a pending charge on my card and I never received an order confirmation email. Did my order go through?

Unfortunately, it did not. A gateway transaction error occurs if the billing address entered does not match the billing address associated with your credit card. Failing this verification step will prevent an order from being placed, but you may still see a pending charge on your card from the attempted transaction. You card may even put these funds on hold to reserve them. However, since a valid order was not created and the funds cannot be transferred, the transaction will drop off your card and release the funds automatically. This typically takes a few business days. If you repeatedly get this error during checkout, you may want to contact your bank to confirm the billing address on file for your card, or checkout using a different card or PayPal instead.

How do I checkout using Sezzle? I only see shopPay, GPay, and PayPal.

ShopPay, GPay, and PayPal are for Express Checkout only. To pay via credit card or Sezzle, you’ll need to ignore those Express options and enter in your contact information into the fields provided on the first page, and then proceed to the shipping page. Once you’ve selected the shipping method, you can continue to the payment page that will offer you the option of paying with credit card, PayPal, or Sezzle. Select Sezzle from the list and click the “Complete Order” button. The site will then direct you to Sezzle, where you can complete the setup process for the payments. Please note that we have no control over Sezzle’s collection of payments, and if you have any trouble setting up the payment information or have any questions regarding the process, you will need to contact Sezzle’s customer service directly for more assistance.

    Might have been nice

    A couple of hours after attaching it to the bed my dog ate a hole through the pillow.

    It’s definitely not tough enough for aggressive or tough chewers.

    Pillow for elevated bed

    For the small dogs, the pillows perfect but when the big dog uses the bed, I take it off because she barely fits in the bed to begin with

    It's survived so far

    While I'm not entirely sure he likes it more than previous beds (all destroyed by my monster-sized lab), it has no tears and has held up to his zoomies bouncing on and off. It's the ONLY bed he hasn't been able to rip/chew through, and I'm so happy about that! It gives him a nice, elevated surface on which to relax. Like all labs, my Spud likes to swim and get himself soaking wet, so I'm overjoyed that the material used on this bed is easily cleaned and won't be ruined by dripping wet lab booty. I would recommend this bed to anyone whose dogs are set out to destroy any other bed!

    Although adjustment was slightly tricky, the pillow attached to the bed has also held up phenomenally and looks brand new! There is not a single tear in it.

    Finally comfortable

    Our dogs love it! Always felt bad that their heads hung over on the hard edges of the cot. They love their new pillow!
