COVER FABRIC:  Durasoft or Wipe Clean?

IS THE “DURASOFT” FABRIC THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR ME? This is the right fabric choice if you are looking for the type of dog bed that feels, looks and performs like the absolute top quality upholstery products. The Durasoft is a 1000 denier, heavy duty texturised Nylon with a polyurethane waterproof coating commissioned and manufactured specially for Tuffies to make the best Tuffies dog beds. A Texturised Nylon is the toughest fabric 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 with hot, soapy water followed by a rinse. Leave to air-dry. A tough, textile-feeling, waterproof fabric for long lasting dog beds. If you want totally hair free and easy-to-wipe dog beds, then have a look at our Wipe Clean Tuffies dog beds


All of our dog beds contain a substantial futon mattress based on polyester hollow fibre. The futon mattress supports your dog’s joints to perfection and gives 100% insulation from any cold floor. The futon channels mean that nothing moves or lumps and the thick insulation remains intact year in year out. Inside our dog beds nothing moves, clumps or flattens.


It will only take a couple of minutes to vacuum the Durasoft dog beds free of hairs and dried-up mud. With the totally waterproof cover nothing penetrates to the inside. Should your Durasoft dog beds need some extra spring cleaning, you can use hot, soapy water to remove any staining followed by a hosepipe rinse. The Polyurethane waterproofing ensures that even after a rainy, muddy walk no dampness penetrates through the Durasoft, which in turn ensures that you don’t get smelly dog beds.


Nothing that you can cut with scissors is chew-proof!! Our dog beds are extremely durable, but a determined dog will always be able to cause damage. We have found that sometimes our delighted customers will tell their friends that Tuffies dog beds are 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-back guaranteed chew proof.

Our Waterproof Fabrics

DURASOFT: 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.

Easy Cleaning

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.
