OUR WATERPROOF FABRICS
Our Durasoft waterproof dog bed fabric is a 1000 Denier texturised Nylon, which is the STRONGEST fabric on the market (beware of cheap polyesters looking 'strong').
We have our fabrics coated to Tuffies' specifications with an extra heavy duty polyurithane waterproofing on the reverse side of the fabric as this provides a long lasting, flexible waterproofing. This fabric will stand up to a huge amount of digging a clawing.
The advantage of Durasoft is that it feels like a lovely upholstery fabric, but it is super strong and waterproof. Perfect for the world's best dog beds.
While NOTHING is chew-proof, the Durasoft is the toughest you will get and for digging dogs, this is great. For dogs that chew, please see our shop.
Both fabrics, Durasoft and Wipe Clean can be scrubbed down with hot, soapy water and rinsed off. The water will make the Durasoft surface wet, while the water will form droplets on top of the Wipe Clean fabric.
After washing, the Durasoft needs to dry off the surface for about an hour on a sunny day while you can towel dry the Wipe Clean Tuffies dog bed.
OUR FUTON MATTRESS
We take great care making a futon mattress for the inside of all our Tuffies dog beds. No crumbling foam, no fluffy beds that collapse. We make a comfortable, insulating and supportive futon mattress that keeps its thick shape.
We took the liberty to compare our Tuffies dog bed futons with conventional dog beds from a pet shop. The first thing you notice is that the Tuffie bed weighs twice as much as the petshop bed. When you open up the two, the difference is huge. The Tuffies futon mattress is packed carefully in rows as the filling is secured and won't go flat or lumpy. The petshop bed simply has loose filling blown in. This will reduce in a short time as it collapses and migrates out in to the corner of the bed.
OUR SOFT, OPTIONAL COVERS
Our waterproof dog beds can be used just as they are, but if it suits you and your dog, we also supply optional covers to fit over the waterproof beds.
Our most popular type is our Luxury Fleece covers:
We also carry some lighter types that are less warm for hot summers, such as our Highland covers.
