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 image 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 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 not a big issue. 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 a determined chewing dog, please refer to the Really Tough Tuffie, our MONEY-BACK-GUARANTEED chewproof dog bed, further down this page.
Our latest customer survey showed that 93% rated their Tuffie "Excellent or Absolutely Fabulous"!!! All customers had owned their Tuffie for more than two years. All prices exclude shipping, which we charge at cost.Read more
Our super popular strong 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 is not a big issue. 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 a keen dog or sharp puppy teeth! For dogs that chew, please refer to our MONEY-BACK-GUARANTEED chew proof "Really Tough Tuffie" further down this page.
If you Google Tuffies Dog Beds, you will find various dog forums discussing and recommending the excellent quality of Tuffies dog beds.

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 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 50C in the washing machine .........it comes out like new.
This twill cover is our new, perfect mix of half pure new wool and half polyester. This gives durability to the wool and provides a light cover for the summer months when your dog may not need the warmer, piled, Luxury Fleece. This twill cover fits any of our waterproof Tuffies mattress beds and is easy to take off for a quick wash and dry at 40 degrees Celsius.
We supply four classy tartans straight from a Scottish woollen mill.
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 lighter version of our extra, optional, covers. A light fleece-cover made in pillow case style so you just slip the waterproof bed into it. The pile is 0.7cm, so not as deep as the above Fluffie Tuffie. However, this is a super quick wash'n'dry option just to give your dog a little extra comfort. Read more
This optional extra cover is exceptionally useful for the wet winter 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 your dog is dry. The cover is perfect for the wet autumn and winter days. Fantastically easy to wash and dry.
Like our Wipe Clean Mattress beds, there is no doubt that the Wipe Clean Nest is superior to the Woven Surface bed. It is easier to clean and will remain waterproof and last longer. We made the first prototype three years ago and we have made sure the Wipe Clean Nest was subjected to thorough testing by dogs that play in it and sleep with their heads hanging over the side in it. It still looks like new.
Dogs love the choice of either watching the world from 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, sturdy walls made in our waterproof wipe clean material 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 is 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 THICK, LUXURY FLEECE. SEE THE BOX BELOW.
Again, 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 slowly phasing in a PU coated fabric for the cushion in order to make it even cosier and soundless. THESE ARE ALL CHOCOLATE BROWN IN COLOUR.
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 have, on many customers' requests, launched a spare cover for your Tuffie Nest. But we have gone one step further: The spare cover is made from our new thick Luxury Fleece. This material is commissioned specially for Tuffies and is 2.5 times heavier and thicker than our Light Fleecy material. A truly cosy and top quality fleece. Add the extra cover to your basket along with your Tuffie Nest or buy it on its own if you already have a Tuffie Nest.
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 picture 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.
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. 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 cover to make a throw, while the inner, waterproof mat is unfolded to give you an ideal travel bed or a handy mat for the back of the car.
The 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 may want 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.
Cleaning: use hot, soapy water and hose down. Click on 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 three out of many thousands.
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.
