Newsworthy: Tuffr Dog Beds – Made in Colorado

What started as a futon dog bed sensation in Scotland has become Tuffr Dog Beds made right here in Colorado. I met the Tuffr team at the American Animal Hospital Association veterinary conference earlier this year. These beds looked awesome for both home and professional use — veterinary hospitals, kennels, daycare, etc.

Our run-of-the-mill dog beds are OK, but they get flat and lumpy. We’ve had to wrap the beds themselves in trash bags — now that Lilly is suddenly and completely incontinent — then religiously wash the covers.

These super durable beds are impervious and can be wiped down or even HOSED DOWN as needed. You can get cozy covers, if your pup prefers a softer outer shell.

I’m sorry I don’t have my own photos of the beds themselves to show. You’ll have to click through to the Tuffr Dog Bed site. 

But, here is the inside of the brochure:

I’ll just say that in person in the exhibit hall … these beds looked impeccably made. And, I love that they are made here in Colorado.

  • Well-stuffed bed deters scrunching.
  • Anti-microbial coating inhibits mold, mildew, and fungus growth.
  • Outer shell made from a strong acrylic-coated polyester fabric.
  • Hypoallergenic; resists dust mites, fleas and other pests.
  • Round corners, hidden seams and zipper-less closure resists wear and reduces the temptation to chew.

Tuffr Dog Beds are pricey, compared to other mass-market beds, but if they last a dog’s lifetime (or more), then it’s likely money well spent.

For example, the size we’d need for Lilly and Ginko would cost about $190 for the bed and $35 for the cover. My notes show this includes shipping.

Wow, those look impressive.

With each foster dog, I end up tossing another cheap dog bed. Maybe it’s time to invest in something that survives puppies and adult dogs working on house training.
