For some reason my dog had destroyed this mat within an hour of me taking it out of the packaging. I have two other dog beds for him that he has never even tried to damage. I don't know if it's the material it's made of or what other issue it could be.

My Lab is a world class chewer. I've given him three other crate mats before and he's destroyed each within a day. Maybe he's maturing, or just getting tired of sleeping directly on a hard floor, but he loves this mat. There is only minimal cushioning on the floor of the mat, but it sure beats plain hard. I have not had need to wash it yet, so can't comment on how the mat will survive that. Nor can I comment on its longevity yet. Otherwise, at this point the material and workmanship seem fine.
One would have to be very generous to call the bottom of the mat a "cushion". It's probably about a quarter inch of padding between the plush top and thin bottom layers. Nonetheless, my white Lab seems to love it so I guess it's adequate.

This AKC mat only has the cushion around the edge. The bottom is the same plush fabric covering a cheap "skid proof " bottom. The smaller mat size was okay for the smaller dogs but I did not like how weak & flimsy the extra large mat was & returned it. The smaller mats have held up nicely & wash well.

This is cushioned only along the edges. It is very well-made and sturdy though. It also washes well.

It is like a thin quilted blanket on the bottom, with most of the cushion on the sides. The side cushions help keep it in place. My dogs have been fine with this for 9 years. They love the "cave/den" of the crate, and don't care what is on the bottom.
