Maximum Pressure Relief

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 Mattress: Our CertiPUR-US solid foam mattresses 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:

Orthopedic mattresses are designed to support the joints and back, helping to reduce joint pain. They provide a more even, all-over support. Our giant orthopedic mattresses are made from a 7" thick solid piece of Certipur-US foam made in the USA. The solid foam helps to hold in heat allowing circulation to increase which can help encourage healing. Filled with the perfect density foamthis mattress offers a firmer sleepmaking it optimal for resilient orthopedic support. These mattresses are not only great for larger breed puppies in preventing potential future ailments but perfect for older dogs that may suffer from joint pain or arthritis. Giving your dog an orthopedic mattress can really aide in easing the pain in those achy joints.

Note: Velvet Rip-Stop fabric offers a soft touch feel and a quieter experience.


made from rip-stop fabric with a DRW finish and waterproof backing, this mattress protector acts as a second line of defense for your mattress against wear and tear, odor, and moisture.

  • It is common for most dogs over 50 pounds to develop joint problems as they age. Arthritis and other joint conditions such as hip dysplasia are among the most widely undiagnosed problems in big dogs. Supportive orthopedic beds can help prevent or reduce unnecessary suffering due to joint pain
  • Our mattresses are made from American made, CertiPUR-US foam, so there is no need to worry about harmful materials or chemicals that have been found in other non-certified dog beds.
  • We use open-cell foam with no added glue, which allows air to circulate better throughout the mattress. Other foam companies add glue to layered foam, inhibiting air circulation and causing the bed to sleep warmer and hold in odors.

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 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.

    Absolutely perfect!

    This bed is absolutely perfect! I purchased for my 112lbs 7 month old great dane who has consistently flatted every bed we’ve gotten him. We just got this bed in today, but I can tell we won’t be having that problem anymore! Very nice quality!! It’s pricey but definitely worth every penny!

    I have three Great Danes only one of the three is a digger

    I loved this product for a while but he did eventually tear the seam where the pillow meets the bed and from there destroyed both beds we bought they are just too expensive to have overlook that one little flaw.

    Dog Bed --- GREAT!!

    This dog bed is WONDERFUL!!!! And one of our dogs, who's chewed to pieces other dog beds, isn't able to chew away on this one since the seams are placed "inward", rather than sticking up and obvious (which made those seams look like a chew toy!). The quality is excellent, and it's very padded and comfy for our dog.

    I love my dog Utah's

    I love my dog Utah's new K9 ballistics bed, in fact I can't keep him off of it! He is a 126# Rhodesian Ridgeback and I love the 7 inches of orthopedic foam which gives him the support he needs. He can stretch out and still have plenty of room. I also love that it is personalized just for him... worth every penny 😀
