Kuranda Beds FAQ's Print E-mail

To help us help you, send us any questions you may have about Kuranda dog beds.

How are the beds chew proof?

Any place the fabric is in a position to be chewed, it is protected by a patented* poly-resin sleeve. There are no corner gaps to bite. Once in a while a dog will bite through a leg or side piece but it is quite rare. This image shows how the fabric fits into the frame of the bed so your dog cannot reach the fabric. Caution: Fabrics are vulnerable to tearing by persistently scratching or digging dogs.

* USA Patent 5992348

Are fabrics and parts replaceable?

Absolutely! Fabrics are replaceable as are all parts including frame members, corners, and legs; even screws & nuts are available.

Are Kuranda beds guaranteed?

Our beds are GUARANTEED CHEWPROOF for one full year! 

We guarantee the structural integrity of the frames and fabrics of our dog beds for a period of one year from date of purchase.  Accordingly, we will replace frame parts and fabric damaged by dogs to the point of not being useable at no charge during this period.  This warranty also includes chewing of corner fittings and legs.  Fabrics covered under this guarantee are 40 oz solid vinyl, Cordura nylon and Ballistic nylon. Multiple fabric replacements for the same bed and replacement of textilene vinyl weave fabric will be handled on a case by case basis.

Which fabric is best?

The two fabrics we use are both excellent materials; each has its advantages.

Ballistic Nylon is an attractive but tough nylon canvas. It is also used on airport luggage. Ballistic Nylon is non-porous (water won’t go through it) and it doesn’t breathe.

40 oz Vinyl is our most durable fabric. It is a thick fabric and has a smooth, very easy to clean surface. Like Ballistic Nylon it doesn’t breathe and will hold water if rained on.

Can dogs dig through the fabric?

A determined digger or scratcher can eventually make a hole if he or she works on one spot. For diggers we recommend 40 oz vinyl but please be aware even this exceptionally durable fabric can be scratched through.

What if my dog just doesn't like the bed?

Provided it is in new condition (no scratches or scuffs on the frame), a bed may be returned within 30 days of purchase.  However, there is a AUD$20.00 fabric charge as we cannot reuse a fabric no matter how little it was used.

How high off the ground are the beds?

All bed sizes 24x25" through 25x40" in metal, poly and aluminium are about six inches off the floor, 27x44’s and 35x50’s are about 9 inches.

Which bed is best?

All depends on the dog. The all aluminum is our strongest and most durable but most around the home dogs will be fine on either the poly or metal beds. For boarding kennels and shelters we recommend the poly resin or all aluminum framed beds.


Bed Fabrics 

40 oz. Vinyl is our most durable fabric. This heavy duty material has shown to hold up better than any fabric we have tested in animal shelters and boarding kennels. Is is a smooth, non-porous, easy to clean fabric similar to what is used on truck tarps and gym mats.
Ballistic Nylon has a rich appearance and is the same fabric frequently used in making luggage. Many kennel owners and breeders who prefer a canvas type material choose Ballistic nylon. This excellent fabric also has a waterproof coating so it will puddle if rained on.
