Chewproof dog beds Tuffies dog beds
Tuffies offer the ONLY guaranteed chew proof dog bed that has full insulation under the dog and a small draught excluding surround for the dog to lean on. A truly outstanding product that solves a problem close to many dog owners, who simply need a comfortable bed for their dog, which is totally safe from being chewed up.
If you are looking for a bed that your dog cannot chew a hole in and destroy, the Really Tough Tuffie is it. Many puppies will have a go at chewing their dog beds, but most dogs will grow out of this and be happy on any, durable and strong dog bed for life. But there are the odd ones that establish a life long habit of nibbling on their dog beds or they down-right chomp the beds to pieces. Sometimes this is an anxiety problem or boredom problem and it only happens when the dog is home alone or out in the kennel, but owners of such dogs are rightfully reluctant to waste money on beds that are being destroyed within days and they look around for indestructible dog beds combined with dog comfort. You can get an unchewable bed in many sort of shapes, but so far it is only the Really Tough Tuffie that provides a warm, draught excluding chew proof dog bed with base insulation.
The Really Tough Tuffie is a totally chew proof dog bed, but it is not a dig-proof dog bed. However, if your dog both chews and digs, you just have to keep an eye on him and his bed and if the fabric in the middle starts to look worn, you can simply take the bed away and replace the inner. This is very important because some dogs can get seriously sick if they eat their dog bedding. Dogs that ingest fabric, wadding or sewing thread are in great danger of getting huge stomach problems such as blockage of the stomach or blockage of the intestines. These complications can be fatal or at least very expensive and it is very important not to be complacent even with a chew proof bed.
The good news is that The Really Tough Tuffie can be dismantled for deep cleaning and for replacement of the inners. With this dog bed you can have the same bed for several dog generations, one chewing puppy after the other, and you can freshen it up every now and then by replacing the wadding and/or the top cover that the dog lies on.
To clean a chew proof dog bed like the Tuffies Really Tough Tuffie, you simply lean it against a wall or fence and scrub it down with hot, soapy water followed by a good rinse and dry. You can see the process illustrated here.
When you want to change the cover or both cover and inner parts, you can purchase either from Tuffies or you can actually use any similar fabric if you have some. For the mattress inside, you could use an old pillow or any such thing if you prefer. How to dismantle the chew proof dog bed from Tuffies is illustrated here.
This is also a popular dog bed for boarding kennels as they often look after dogs that only chew their beds when they are a bit stressed and away from home. The great hygienic properties of this bed makes it an ideal dog bed for dog training homes and boarding kennels.
With a fairly high outlay, this bed is still a prudent spend of money compared to buying repeated dog beds that get destroyed by dogs. It saves the mess and most importantly it saves the vast vet bills and the heart break of having a sick dog after ingesting dog bed materials.
