The Durasoft Nest Dog Bed
FULL DESCRIPTION & FAQS
Our Nest dog beds are sturdy, waterproof and warm and come with a Luxury Fleece covered futon mattress in the middle.
COVER FABRIC: Durasoft or Wipe Clean?
IS DURASOFT THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR ME? If you are looking for the type of dog beds that feel, look and perform like the best quality upholstery fabric, then the Durasoft is ideal for you. It is soft like a textile to the touch, but this texturised 1000 denier Nylon is the strongest and most durable fabric you can possibly make dog beds out of. You will of course find some dog hairs on the inside of the nest sides, but they are quick and easy to vacuum off. We have the Durasoft fabric specially coated for us with an extra heavy polyurethane coating making it completely waterproof so you can hose these dog beds down. See our Tuffies Dog Bed Care Guide. If you are looking for completely hair-free dog beds that you can spot clean with a household cleaner and a cloth, take a look at our Wipe Clean Tuffie Nest .
THE NEST: Dogs love the nest type dog beds because they can curl up inside, rest their head on the top and watch the world from there. The high sides mean that these dog beds provide perfect draught exclusion and when your dog wants more peace, he will just cuddle in to his nest, feeling a little bit like the wee wolf that lives inside him, buried in his den....
SURROUNDS: The Tuffie Nest has thick, strong walls for your dog to rest his head (and front paws) without the bed collapsing down or getting out of shape.
FUTON CUSHION: In the middle of these nest dog beds sits a futon cushion in Durasoft fabric. This is our standard futon mattress that doesn't go flat or lumpy, but stays fresh and thick and provides perfect insulation from the floor. All Tuffies dog beds have perfect futons inside.
LUXURY FLEECE: The central cushion comes fitted with a thick, Luxury Fleece.
WASHING: To wash the nest dog beds, you can take the cushion out, sponge with hot, soapy water, rinse and air-dry. The surrounds can be turned inside out and washed the same way as long as you don't point the water-jet directly on the seams. The fleece can be washed in the washing machine at 40 degrees Celsius.

CHEWABLE? Nothing that you can cut with scissors is chew-proof!! Our dog beds are made from the most durable material available, but a determined dog will always be able to cause damage. We find 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 are robust, stay thick and insulating and they last for years, but they are not chew-proof. HOWEVER, if you are looking for chew proof dog beds, we have of course the Really Tough Tuffie, which is money-back guaranteed chew proof.
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.
15-30Kgs: Large Nest.

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.
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.
