The Tuffie with the most outstanding performance over time!!!
COVER:This waterproof material has a smooth surface like a waxed jacket, with a little "tackiness" that makes it feel secure. With time it becomes softer like a subtle leather without losing its waterproof excellence.
STUFFING: A substantial futon mattress which will NOT GO FLAT OR LUMPY!!! No loose stuffing that moves or clumps!!!
CLEANING: As mud and hairs just dry up and fall off, cleaning is easy. If the bed is badly soiled, you can clean it with hot, soapy water and just hose down and towel dry. Small accidents can be cleaned up using your normal household surface cleaner. Great for freshening things up without even moving the bed....
DURABLE, but not chew proof: Tuffies dog beds are tough, but keen chewers or sharp puppy teeth can still chew any fabric that you can cut with scissors!! Many customers report to us that the Tuffie is the only bed their dog has never chewed, but if you have any doubt that your dog might have a nibble then please refer to the Really Tough Tuffie, our MONEY-BACK-GUARANTEED chewproof dog bed, further down this page.
Our super popular, long time Tuffie.
COVER: A pleasant, tightly woven, nylon fabric with a 100% waterproof backing.
STUFFING: A substantial futon mattress (made with hollow fibre), which will NOT GO FLAT OR LUMPY! NO loose stuffing that moves and clumps!!!
CLEANING: As mud and hairs just dry up and fall off, cleaning can be kept at a minimum. If the bed is soiled, just sponge down with hot, soapy water and hose off. Air dry for about 45 minutes.
DURABLE, but not chewproof: The Woven Tuffies Dog Bed is made from the strongest existing fabric and while many, usually bed-chewing dogs, won't bother with the Tuffie, we MUST stress that anything that you can cut with scissors is chewable to any dog and puppies with sharp teeth! For dogs that might chew, please refer to our MONEY-BACK-GUARANTEED chew proof "Really Tough Tuffie" further down this page.
We have commissioned our UK textile manufacturer to make the ULTIMATE fleecy material. We feel that this fabric is perfectly in line with the Tuffies brand representing quality, durability and easy cleaning. Our Luxury Fleece is 2.5 times thicker, denser and heavier than our "Light Fleecy" fabric. Pick a Luxury Fleece cover for your Tuffie mattress bed and make it into an easily maintained and hygienic luxury dog bed. The Luxury Fleece covers close with poppers at one end and you can wash it at 40C in the washing machine .........it comes out like new.
This heavy duty pet bed cover is exactly like "Vet bed", which has the tough, green base-fabric and a very thick polyester fur pile. This cover has the thick pet bed pile on the upper side and is completed with a light Nylon on the under side. You simply put the Tuffie bed inside it and close the poppers.
Fully machine washable at 60 degrees Celsius.
This is the perfect dog bed combination: A thick, warm, waterproof and hygienic dog bed that can be used on its own or with the optional thick, machine washable cover for fantastic luxury.
Many customers use the cover in the winter and keep it off the Tuffie bed in the warmer summer.
This is our very light fleecy cover. It is an off-the-shelf pet product fabric and probably too light and thin to fit in with the Tuffies concept. However, there is a space for a budget cover, which is also fast and easy to wash.
It is important to mention that if you want the same colour choices, but a far more substantial product, then you should have a look at our Luxury Fleece, which is made from a fabric 2.5 times thicker than the Light Fleece.
Our twill cover provides you with a nice light summer cover without a pile. This means it is light and not too warm and it is also very easy to wash and dry. Wash at 40 degrees.
We supply four classy tartans.
This optional extra cover is exceptionally useful for the wet and mud-loving dogs. It is a highly technical "spacing 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 with the Wicking cover on, the water runs off the dog, quickly through the cover and leaves the dog "high and dry". The water will evaporate from the waterproof Tuffie in its own time. The Tuffie stuffing is dry and insulating and your dog is dry. The cover is perfect for the wet autumn and winter days. Fantastically easy to wash and dry.
The Wipe Clean material is as strong and waterproof as the Woven Surface and it is easier to clean. The Wipe Clean fabric will look best in the long run.
Dogs love the choice of either watching the world, resting their heads on the side of their nest or to bury down in the warm, snuggly fleece in the middle away from noise, draft or cold.
SURROUNDS: The Tuffie Nest has thick, strong walls for your dog to rest his head (and front legs) on without the bed collapsing down or getting out of shape.
FUTON CUSHION: In the middle of the nest sits a Wipe Clean futon cushion. This is our standard futon mattress that doesn't go flat or lumpy.
LUXURY FLEECE: The central cushion comes fitted with a thick luxury fleece, which is machine washable.
WASHING: To wash the nest, you can take the cushion out, sponge with hot, soapy water and rinse. The surrounds can be turned inside out and washed the same way as long as you don't get too much water on the seams. We also supply spare cushion covers in Luxury Fleece. See more on this page.
Again, if you have any doubt that your dog might be chewing, please remember that no fabric that you can cut with scissors is chew proof. If you have a chewing dog, our ONLY CHEWPROOF bed is our Really Tough Tuffie further down this page.
SIZE GUIDE: Based on dogs lying comfortably curled up in a nest, we advise the following sizes according to the dog's weight. Up to 5Kgs: Small Nest. 5-15Kgs: Medium Nest. 15-25Kgs: Large Nest. 25-40Kgs: XL Nest. Over 40Kgs: XXL
The Tuffie Nest is all the rave!! Take a look in our Testimonials Gallery to see just some of the many pictures our customers have sent us showing their happy dogs in the Tuffie Nest.
SURROUNDS: The Tuffie Nest has thick, sturdy walls in our waterproof material for your dog to rest his head (and front legs) on without the bed collapsing down and getting out of shape.
FUTON CUSHION: In the middle of the nest sits a futon cushion, again with a waterproof cover. This is our standard futon mattress that doesn't go flat or lumpy. We are now using a PU coated fabric for the cushion in order to make it even cosier and soundless. THESE ARE ALL CHOCOLATE BROWN IN COLOUR, but this is always covered with the Fleece Cover of your choice.
LUXURY FLEECE: The central cushion is fitted with a luxury fleece, which is machine washable.
WASHING: To wash the nest, you can take the cushion out, sponge with hot, soapy water and rinse. The surrounds can be turned inside out and washed the same way as long as you don't get too much water on the seams.

WE ALSO SUPPLY SPARE CUSHION COVERS IN THICK, LUXURY FLEECE. SEE THE BOX BELOW.
Again, if you suspect the slightest chewing tendency from your dog, please keep in mind that our ONLY CHEWPROOF bed is our Really Tough Tuffie further down this page. The nest is NOT chew proof.
SIZE GUIDE: Based on dogs lying comfortably curled up in a nest, we advise the following sizes accoring to the dog's weight: Up to 5Kg: Small Nest. 5-15Kgs: Medium Nest. 15-25Kgs: Large Nest. 25-40Kgs XL Nest. Over 40Kgs: XXL Nest
If you would like to have a spare Nest Cushion Cover to wash or if you just want to renew the one you have had for a while, here are your colour and size choices. The cushion fleeces are washable at 40degrees and come up like new.
Here is an opportunity to make your Tuffie Nest (either the Woven Surface or the Wipe Clean) ridiculously snug and cosy. The Tuffie Nest Cover is fitted under the cushion and covers the Nest sides inside and outside. You then put your cushion (with its own cover) in from the top. Super easy to machine wash. Click on the box below to see how easily the cover is fitted and removed for washing. Choose a Nest cover that you feel will go well with the cushion cover that you already have in your nest. Alternatively you could, in addition, purchase a new Cushion Cover to match your new Nest Cover. This Nest Cover will also spice up a Nest that is getting into its twilight years.
This is the first product in our "Tuffies' Delicious Luxury Series". The Fleece-lined Tuffie Nest is developed for the extra pampered pooch, especially the one that lives with you in the house. 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. This is not really meant to be for the mud-puddle loving rough canine, but it is in fact totally machine washable: take the cushion out and turn the "surround" inside out. Place in your washing machine and wash at 40degrees. The cushion fleece cover can also go in the machine. It will take over night to dry out the whole nest in a warm place. Don't tumble dry.
We advise that the Mini and Small will go in most domestic washing machines. The Medium will go in a 9Kg domestic machine, but you will probably need to visit your laundrette to have the Large size washed. As they vacuum clean well, you should not need washing too often.
Sizing: Mini: Chihuahua (up to 5Kg). Small: Jack Russel (around 5-10Kg). Medium: Beagle (around 10-16Kg). Large: Labrador (up to max 30Kg). Guidelines only.

Promotional offer: 10% off the Fleece lined nest till 31st May 2014.
NOT CHEW-PROOF. We must emphasize that our products are top quality and durable, but not chew-proof. A dog can chew through the toughest fabric in minutes!!!
As part of our new extreme luxury range, the Wool-Tweed-Tuffie is a complete bed, especially designed to adorn your living room whilst making your dog feel in heaven. The stuffing has been designed to feel softer than our standard futon mattresses, but there is still the same amount of stuffing per square inch. All the stuffing is fixed in place and won't move round. The stuffing is encased in a very light, water-resistant cover, which will mould to your dog and feel all soft and luxurious. This water-resistant unit is then placed inside a fabulously luscious 100% wool tweed cover and closed with buttons. Please have a look at the "More images". The tweed cover is washable at your machine wool-wash if you trust your washing machine. It must be washed at less than 30degrees, but with a bit of shampoo, it cleans really well.
The puppy-Tuffie is your ideal starter bed 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 soft bed. This mat is, at this stage, inside a Luxury Fleece cover to create a soft, "sink in", warm bed 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 waterproof travel bed. It's light and easy to take with you.
THE LINER: This is an absolutely storming way to revolutionise your old, tatty plastic dog bed. The Tuffie liner is made from our thick, strong and easily washable Luxury fleece. It fits into your plastic bed and is securely fastened with a cord that grips under the bed’s lip. Your dog can move and tumble round his bed, but the liner will still be there. This secures a warm, padded bed, where he is far more comfortable and will also be happier resting his head on the softened edge.
THE PADDING: You can either purchase the liner on its own or you can add the removable pad 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 be supplied, fitted, with the liner. The padding option is absolutely ideal as you can separate liner and padding when you wash them so that washing is more effective and the drying 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 continually destroy their bedding by chewing can now have a safe, soft, warm bed. 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. In time, you will need to fit a new fabric inner, especially if you have a keen digger, which you can do your self. This is an easy job. We supply new fabric inserts for £11 or you source your own waterproof fabric. This way the Really Tough Tuffie will last years and years. This bed is a chew proof bed, not a dig-proof bed. However, the inner fabric is jolly tough and it takes a lot of digging to get the better of it.
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") We have now a couple of thousands of Really Tough Tuffies out in the UK. The bed comes with a MONEY-BACK-GUARANTEE and to date we have only had to replace one bed in every thousand sold. These were severe cases.
If you already own a Really Tough Tuffie, 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 here to see how to fit the new insert to your Really Tough Tuffie.
Also, it is of course possible for you to use any waterproof material, so if you can source your own and cut it to shape, it will work just as well.
If you already own a Really Tough Tuffie, you may from time to time want to replace the stuffing along with the new fabric. This is not always necessary, but you have the option here. Please click here to see how replace the stuffing in your Really Tough Tuffie.
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 now offer top quality collars: 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.
