'It lasted an hour' Kmart fan blasts pet bed in scathing review

Pet owners aren’t happy with this popular Kmart product.

Kmart has come under fire after photos of their ‘chew resistant’ ped beds appeared online ripped to pieces.

One Aussie mum who purchased the bed, was less than impressed sharing pictures of her pet Labrador surrounded by the ripped-up bed, which promised pet owners that they are ‘chew resistant’.

“It cost $45 which I know is not a huge amount, but it was for me as a single parent,” she told Yahoo Lifestyle.

“I was so pleased that Kmart had... [a] big enough and durable outdoor bed that would accommodate our dog.”

But the bed barely lasted an hour after her dog ripped it to pieces.

“Then to have it last not even an hour I was disappointed [to say] the least,” she says.

“I understand dogs chew and that's why I brought this bed as it clearly states it’s chew resistant.”

She went on to warn others about the product.

“Don’t bother with the so-called chew resistant new pet beds,” she wrote.

After her post, dozens of other pet owners came forward claiming they had had a similar experience.

“Mine lasted exactly 5 minutes,” one angry shopper wrote.

“Our Labrador did the same thing within an hour of having it,” another said. “Weakest spot seems to be the zip.”

“My daughter's Bull Terrier ripped his apart in [one] hour,” a third shared.

One upset pet owner shared that her experience with the pet bed cost her a hefty vet bill of $3000 after her dog ate part of the bedding.

However, others were quick to comment that Kmart could hardly be held responsible for dogs wanting to chew things, saying that owners should take more responsibility.

“Even my chihuahua gets through the chew resistant ones in a day,” one Facebook fan said..

“It is chew resistant, but it is not attack and destroy resistant,” another quipped.

Shoppers have since reported that Kmart refunded them their purchases, after initially refusing.
