KONG® Durable Crate Pad Pet Bed
Nice crate pad
The great look of this pad is what attracted me to it. That and the fact that it is machine washable (although I haven't yet thrown it in the washer so I can't comment on how well that works). I'm crossing my fingers, but so far after about 2 weeks our puppy has yet to put holes in or destroy it... and he has destroyed other pillows and pads, cords, and things so I know he has it in him. We have not left it in the crate when we were not around though, which I would suspect has made a difference and might be why the other reviews are so bad. From the feel of it and the fact that I know that our puppy has at least bitten down on it, it is a lot more durable than most pads. It also fits very well in the crate.

Low End Quality from KONG
Historically KONG has always been associated with Quality. For this particular item...it fell short! My GSD puppy (male @ 3 1/2 months old) chewed the corner threading and ultimately pulled out the foam inside in 1 night! (guess he wasn't tired!)

Don't waste your money!
I was looking for a durable bed for inside my puppy's crate and this Kong bed seemed like it was made of pretty tough material. Aparently not tough enough, my puppy had it ripped open and all the stuffing pulled out in a matter of a few hours.

Not what I exepcted
This bed is not what you expect from Kong, what's worse is Kong claims it isn't their product and that it is a Petsmart product that Kong is okay with Petsmart using Kong's name.(See below# Regardless I would avoid this bed considering the price it will frustrate you knowing the bed won't last longer then a week. The under material is lose enough for a dog to grab and separate from the top padding and the side material is made of a thin material that is easily torn and as seen in other pics you will have stuffing everywhere.
