If you've got a mucky mutt in your home, meet the Scruffs Expedition Dog Bed, a heavy-duty, water-resistant pad that's designed specifically for dogs who love the outdoors.

Durability is often a key factor when choosing the best dog bed, and the Scruffs Expedition Dog Bed looks to deliver a hardwearing addition to your home that won't let your adventure pup down. 

The Scruffs name is typically a luxury dog bed brand; their range includes stylish and comfortable beds, from eco-friendly to heavy duty offerings. Crafted for dogs that love beach walking and muddy forest trails, however, the Expedition Dog Bed offers a practical place for the everyday pooch to rest their paws, but at a fairly lofty price tag, is it worth going the extra mile when it comes to the wallet?

Scruffs Expedition Dog Bed: Features

The Scruffs Expedition Dog Bed is designed with complete practicality in mind. There's the material choice: a 600-denier polyester on the outer cover, complete with water-resistant backing that's also applied to the bed's non-slip base.

A nice touch is the addition of PET fiber fill in the interior that can be recycled, making it great for pet owners with eco-friendly sensibilities. 

The key selling point here, however, is the resistance to water and mud and, by and large, it doesn't disappoint. Whether you're hitting the beach or going camping, the hardwearing material shakes off sand, while you can simply vacuum off any dirt.

If, for whatever reason, you do need to give the Scruffs Expedition Dog Bed a deep cleanse, it can be easily washed, and it won’t easily rip or tear either. 

If your dog is an aggressive chewer, however, this may not be the best bed for them. Young puppies who are going through their teething phase in particular are liable to tear into the bed, which is surprising given the hardwearing properties of the material.

The Scruffs bed is available in multiple sizes and colors, so you should be able to find one that both you and your pooch will enjoy. Because it is all one piece, the Scruffs bed should hold up well and provide support for dogs of all sizes.

Scruffs Expedition Dog Bed: User Reviews

Buyers should be prepared to look closely at the measurements of Scruffs Expedition Dog Bed to ensure that it will be large enough for your dog. Users report that the seller measurements appear to be based on the inside cushion area, and your dog will need a few inches beyond that depending on how they sleep. 

The bed is generally regarded as comfortable and roomy enough for large dogs once a good size is selected (this may include sizing up), but smaller dogs breeds with a destructive tendency have managed to pull the internal stuffing out.  

Most pet owners, however, have praised the bed's durability, and love that it is easy to wash even for the muckiest of pups. In the long term, the Scruffs Expedition Dog Bed typically keeps shape well.

Should you buy the Scruffs Expedition Dog Bed?

If you and your pup is a lover of the great outdoors, then the Scruffs Expedition Dog Bed will not disappoint in the durability stakes. It's designed to withstand everything your mucky mutt throws at it – apart from their their own chewing instincts.

The bed is, by and large, a tough addition to the household, but it's not the best option for young puppies who love to chew.

For mature mutts who love to embrace an adventurous lifestyle, however, there's plenty here to provide them with long-lasting comfort.
