Easy-to-clean durable dog beds to be used on their own or with one of ouroptional covers.
COVER FABRIC: Wipe Clean or Durasoft?
IS THE “WIPE CLEAN” FABRIC THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR ME? If you want your dogbeds to be completely and totally free of dog hairs and super easy to clean(either hose down or spot clean with a household spray and cloth), our WipeClean dog beds are the ones for you. This fabric is smooth and feels like awaxed jacket, yet it has plenty of grip for your dog. With time and use itbecomes softer like a subtle leather without losing its waterproof excellence. Want a more upholstery-kind of fabric? Look at Durasoft (next one down this page).
All of our dog beds contain a substantial futon mattress based onpolyester hollow fibre. This mattress supports your dog’s joints to perfectionand gives 100% insulation from any cold floor. The futon channels mean thatnothing moves or lumps and the thick insulation remains intact year in yearout. Inside our dog beds nothing moves, clumps or flattens.
CLEANING THE WIPE CLEAN TUFFIE DOG BEDS:
As mud and hairs just dry up and fall off the Wipe Clean dog beds, cleaning is easy. If the dogbed is badly soiled, you can clean it with hot, soapy water and justhose down and towel dry. Small accidents can be cleaned up using yournormal household surface cleaner. Great for freshening things up without evenmoving the bed....
Nothing that you can cut with scissors is chew-proof!! Our dog beds are extremelydurable, but a determined dog will always be able to cause damage. We find thatsometimes our delighted customers will tell their friends that Tuffies dog bedsare virtually indestructible, but unfortunately nothing is, not even a Tuffie.Tuffies dog beds are robust and last for years, but they are not chew-proof.HOWEVER, we have of course the Really Tough Tuffie, which is money-backguaranteed chew proof.
COVER FABRIC: Durasoft or Wipe Clean?
IS THE “DURASOFT” FABRIC THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR ME? This is the right fabric choice for you if you are looking for the type of dog beds that feel, look and perform like the absolute top quality upholstery products. The Durasoft is a heavy duty texturised Nylon with a polyurethane waterproof coating commissioned specially to the need of our Tuffies dog beds. A Texturised Nylon is the toughest fabric invented to date (the "texturisation" means that each, strong yarn in the weave grips in to the neighbouring yarn performing a continuous rip-stop effect making our Durasoft dog beds exceptionally durable and tough). As a Nylon it will only allow a minimum of dog hairs stick to it and these are very easy to vacuum off. To clean the Durasoft dog beds you can sponge them down in hot, soapy water followed by a rinse. Leave to air-dry. A tough, textile feeling, waterproof fabric for long lasting dog beds. Want totally hair free and wipeable dog beds? Have a look at our Wipe Clean Tuffies dog beds above.
All of our dog beds contain a substantial futon mattress based onpolyester hollow fibre. The futon mattress supports your dog’s joints toperfection and gives 100% insulation from any cold floor. The futon channelsmean that nothing moves or lumps and the thick insulation remains intact yearin year out. Inside our dog beds nothing moves, clumps or flattens.
CLEANING THE DURASOFT TUFFIE DOG BEDS:
It will only take a couple of minutes to vacuum the Durasoft dog bedsfree of hairs and dried up mud. Should your Durasoft dog beds need some extraspring cleaning, you can use hot, soapy water to remove any staining followedby a hosepipe rinse. The Polyurethane waterproofing ensures that even after arainy, muddy walk no dampness penetrates through the Durasoft, which in turnensures that you don’t get smelly dog beds.

The Woven Surface Tuffies dog beds are being replaced by Durasoft.
We always search for better textiles and found that the Durasoft is more what we want: it is a great alternative to the Wipe Clean as it is more like an upholstery textile. So in the future we will just have the super smooth Wipe Clean and the more textile like Durasoft, both totally waterproof. We are using the last of our Woven Surface fabric as mattress dog beds at a low price and in some ways we are really sad to say goodbye to this fabric that has performed so well over the last 15 years.
The Luxury Fleece covers fit our Mattress dog beds, you just have to pick the corresponding size.
We have commissioned our UK textile manufacturer to make the ULTIMATE fleecy material especially and uniquely for our dog beds. We feel that this fabric is finally the perfect compliment to our Tuffies dog beds representing quality, durability and easy cleaning. Our Luxury Fleece is 2.5 times thicker, denser and heavier than the off-the-shelf Light Fleece fabric. Pick any colour from our range of Luxury Fleece covers for your Tuffie mattress dog beds and turn them into easily maintained and hygienic luxury dog beds. The Luxury Fleece covers close with poppers at one end and you can wash them at 40 degrees Celsius in the washing machine.......they come out like new and have a very short drying time.
The Fluffie Tuffie covers fit our Mattress dog beds, you just have to pick the corresponding size.
The Tuffie Tunnel covers will transform any of our mattress dog beds into a cosy cave for the little wolf that lives in every dog. You just pick the correct size to fit either the Durasoft or the Wipe Clean mattress dog bed.
The Tunnel covers come in a wide range of colours and are made from our thick, heavy duty Luxury Fleece, especially commissioned by Tuffies at the fleece manufactuers. When you pop one of our waterproof dog beds inside the cover, it closes like a pillow-case and stays in place no matter how much your dog moves around.
This is our very light fleecy cover. It is an off-the-shelf pet productfabric and probably too light and thin to fit in with the Tuffies dog beds’concept of high quality and durability. However, we do allow this space for abudget cover, which is also fast and easy to wash.
It is important to mention that if you want a far more substantial cover to fit our dog beds, then you should have a look at our Luxury Fleece, which is made from a fabric especially commissioned by Tuffies dog beds from the UK fleece manufacturer. The Luxury Fleece is 2.5 times thicker than the Light Fleece.
This optional cover is exceptionally useful for the water and mud-loving dogs when they come in from a walk or a day's work and need to relax on one of their waterproof dog beds. The Wicking Cover is made from a highly technical "Spacer Fabric": Two strong honey-comb open-weave polyester fabrics sandwich a strong, very open spacing material that does not flatten. When your wet dog goes on his Tuffie dog bed with the Wicking cover on, the water runs off his coat, quickly through the cover and leaves the dog "high and dry". The water will evaporate from the waterproof Tuffie dog beds in its own time, but your dog will not feel damp. The Tuffie futon stuffing is dry and insulating and your dog is dry. The cover is perfect for the wet autumn and winter days and ideal for dog beds in the car boot. Fantastically easy to wash and dry.
Our Twill cover provides you with a nice, light summer cover without a fur-pile. This means that it is light and not too warm and it is also very easy to wash and dry. This is ideal if you like thicker Luxury Fleece covers for your dog beds in the winter and autumn, but prefer something lighter in the summer.
Our Nest dog beds are sturdy, waterproof and warm and come with a Luxury Fleece covered futon mattress in the middle.
IS THE "WIPE CLEAN" FABRIC THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR ME? If you are looking for the type of dog beds where absolutely no dog hairs stick and if you want to be able to spot clean (slobber, grease etc) from your dog beds, the Wipe Clean type is ideal for you. This fabric feels like a waxed jacket, so it is smooth and subtle, a bit like soft leather. 100% waterproof so you can hose down and spot clean these dog beds. If you are looking for dog beds that are made from a more upholstery-like material, have a look at our Durasoft Tuffie nests.
THE NEST: Dogs love the nest type dog beds because they can curl up inside, rest their head on the side and enjoy a totally draft free place from where they can watch the world. When your dog wants a bit more peace, he can cuddle up in his "den". This appeals to the wee wolf that lives inside every dog.
SURROUNDS: The Tuffie Nest dog beds have thick, strong walls for yourdog to rest his head (and often his front paws) on without the bed collapsingdown or getting out of shape.
FUTON CUSHION: In the middle of the nestsits a Wipe Clean futon cushion. This is our standard futon mattress thatdoesn't go flat or lumpy, but stays fresh and thick and provides perfectinsulation from the floor. All Tuffies dog beds have futons inside.
LUXURY FLEECE: The central cushion comesfitted with a thick luxury fleece, which is machine washable.
WASHING: To wash the nest, you can take the cushion out, take the fleece off andsponge with hot, soapy water and rinse. The surrounds can be turned inside outand washed the same way as long as you don't point the water-jet directly onthe seams. The cushion fleece can be washed in the washing machine at 40 degrees Celsius. Click the "How to" button to see washing instructions.

We find that sometimes our deighted customers will tell their friends that Tuffies dog beds are virtually indestructible, but unfortunately nothing is, not even a Tuffie.

Like most dog beds, the covers will need replacing from time to time or maybe you would just like to have spare to change when washing. We supply nest cushion covers on their own, just pick the size that will fit your nest and choose a colour you like. These wash at 40 degrees Celsius in the washing machine.
The Nest Cover is made from our thick Luxury Fleece, the top quality you would expect in our dog beds. The Nest Cover is a perfect way of making your Tuffies Nest ridiculously snug and cosy. The cover is fitted under the nest cushion and goes round the nest sides inside and outside and you then put the nest cushon (with its original cover) in from the top. As far as dog beds go, this must be the best way to give maximum comfort and maximum convenience in cleaning as the whole lot comes off to go in the washing machine.
If you already have a nest, we recommend that you choose a cover that will match your cushion cover as the two will be seen together. Dog beds have to look stylish, so if you forexample have a Black Watch cover, the cushion cover would look good in black. Something plain on either cushion OR the cover makes these dog beds look very smart.
This cover is also a good way of perking up a nest that is getting in to its twilight years.
THE SOCK: We are delighted now to offer the Nest Sock, invented by one of our customers, Corinne Knoesen. The Nest sock, a size for each of our nest dog beds up to size XL. The sock slips over your nest and leaves about a third open at the top. The opening is held in place with an elasticated cord for flexibility. Should the little wolf that lives inside your dog want a REAL den, this is it. Like all our Luxury Fleece products for our dog beds, this one can be machine washed at 40 degrees Celsius.
COVER: The Fleece lined Tuffie Nest dog beds are developed for the extra pampered pooches, especially the ones that rarely dip their paws in muddy puddles and who demand absolute luxury dog beds. The outer sides and base are made from our strong and sturdy Wipe Clean type of material, but the inside is simply delicious Luxury Fleece both on the sides and as a cover for the waterproof cushion in the bottom. Although these fleece-lined dog beds are not really meant for the mud-puddle loving rough canine, they are in fact totally machine washable: Take the cushion out and turn the "surround" inside out. Place in your washing machine and wash at 40 degrees Celsius. The cushion fleece cover can also go in the machine while the waterproof cushion can be hosed down. It will take a full day to dry out the whole nest if you leave it in a warm place. Click on the "How to" button to see more washing instructions.
We advise that the Small nest can be washed in most domestic washing machines, the Medium will fit in a 9Kg domestic machine, but you will probably need to visit your local laundrette to have the Large size washed. As they vaccum clean well, you should not need to wash these dog beds very often.
SIZE GUIDE: Based on dogs lying comfortably curled up in their nest dog beds, we advise the following sizes according to the dog's weight: Up to 5Kgs use a Small. 5-15Kgs use a Medium. 15-30Kgs use a Large. Guidelines only.
CHEWABLE? Nothing that you can cut with scissors is chew-proof!! Our beds are made from the most durable material available, but a determined dog will always be able to cause some damage. We find that sometimes our delighted customers will tell their friends that Tuffies dog beds are virtually indestructable, but unfortunately nothing is, not even a Tuffie. Tuffies are robust, stay thick and insulating and they last for years, but they are not chew-proof dog beds. HOWEVER, we have of course the Really Tough Tuffie, which is money-back guaranteed chew proof.
The stuffing in this luxury bed is not like our normal futon that otherwise is in all our other dog beds, it is a multilayer stuffing with lots and lots of layers of hollow fiber. The Durasoft cover has vented eyelets to expel all air as the dog sinks in to these types of dog beds. As a final finesse, these dog beds come with a 100% wool tweed from Moon fabrics. The wool cover can be washed, but only on a gentle wool wash.
The Puppy-Tuffies are ideal starter dog beds for the day you bring your new puppy home: The inner bed is a thin mattress with a light, but strong, waterproof cover, which is folded over to create a double thickness soft bed. It is almost like puppy is sleeping on several dog beds like the princess on the pea, creating a welcome sink-in feeling for the new arrival. By clever design, the Fleece cover is closed with poppers right round and can easily be detatched for washing machine cleaning. Any puppy-accidents can be wiped off the inner waterproof mat.
WHEN YOUR DOG HAS GROWN TO ADULT SIZE, you can then open up the bed to make a larger travel bed complete with washable cover round the inner mattress. It is light and easy to take with you and unlike other dog beds, it will not take up a lot of space in the boot. Of all dog beds, this is probably the most versatile and it means that your first little puppy dog bed is not made redundant when puppy grows, it simply unfolds to a larger bed.
THE LINER: This is an absolutely storming way to revolutionise your old, tired plastic dog beds. The Tuffie liners are made from our thick, strong and easily washable Luxury fleece. They fit into the plastic bed and are securely fastened with a cord that grips under the bed's lip. Your dog can move and tumble round these dog beds, but the liner will still be firmly in place. This secures a warm, padded bed, where he is far more comfortable and will also be happier resting his chin on the softened edge. Many dogs sleep in hard plastic dog beds, but the Tuffie liners will make all the difference.
THE PADDING: You can either purchase the liners on their own or you can add the pads as well. If you just buy the liner, you can use it as it comes or you can put your own little piece of fleece or pillow in the pocket in the base (click on the box below to see how). If you prefer, you can also purchase the liner-pad, which will then be supplied, fitted, with the liner. The padding option is absolutely ideal as you can separate liner and padding when you wash so that washing is more effective and the drying of these dog beds is quicker.
SIZING: The liners are sized according the length of the plastic bed’s base. Simply turn your plastic bed over and measure the longest length (it’s often written on it anyway). If, for example it is 61cm, you choose the liner size “Base: 61 – 65cm”. Once you have added it to your basket, you can pick the same size padding or just buy the liner as it is. Simple as that.
The guaranteed chewproof dog bed from Tuffies. Dogs that contiunually destroy their dog beds by chewing can now be safe, soft and warm. The clever design means that a dog can not get hold of the soft fabric in the middle and can not grab the plastic surround. He can't get any purchase with his side teeth, the ones that normally do all the damage to his dog beds.....in the past. Under the fabric there is 10cm of hollow fiber filling to keep him warm and supported. These are chew-proof dog beds, so if he digs a lot, you will, in time, need to fit a new fabric inner, which is an easy job. We supply new fabric inserts for £11 or you can source you own waterproof fabric. This way the Reallly Tough Tuffie will last years and years. These beds are chewproof dog beds, and although they can withstand a whole lot of digging and abuse, they are not dig-proof.
If your dog chews one of these dog beds (and you followed the instructions) you will be paid your money back.
CLEANING: Use hot, soapy water and hose down. Click on box above the picture for more information. At the moment we only have one size. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE HAPPY WITH THE SIZE: Inside dimensions: 74 x 59cm (29" x 23") Outer dimensions: 107 x 90cm (42" x 35")
If you already own one of our Really Tough Tuffie dog beds, you may want to replace the fabric insert at some point. We supply these in either blue or green and they come without a label as this may be a weak point for the dog's digging. Please click on the "How to" button for instructions.
If you have access to super strong waterproof material, you can also cut your own and fit it in our chewproof dog beds.
If you alsready own one of our Really Tough Tuffie dog beds, you may from time to time want to replace the stuffing along with a new fabric insert. This is not always necessary, but you have the option here.
Please also remember, that you could put your own "stuffing" in, for example a couple of old pillows or half a duvet. Just make sure it sits nice and even in the bed and that it is thick enough so that you have to press it down a bit to make it flat while you put the fabric over the top.
We normally make dog beds, but we also offer collars made from durable webbing with a ribbon in three different tartan designs. The slider and the ring are in solid brass. For quick release, and for safety, the collars are fitted with a double side release buckle.
To match your Tuffie Collar, we offer leads in the same three choices of stylish tartan. The nylon webbing gives the lead strength and stability with a brass clip at the end.
