I agree with Tammy. Augie was a destroyer of beds as a pup too, and absolutely had to keep anything with a zipper from him. Some of the beds had removable covers. You would never know it now - he is 4 - he doesn't chew anything. I had to go to the fabric store and bought yardage of fleece, when it was 50% off, in lengths that would fold up to a nice cushy thickness. Finn would chew off the decorative sewing around the edges of fleece blankets. If you use towels, I would recommend removing any of the labels that they might be able to chew off.

Yup. I took all "real" beds away from Kodi until he was at least 2 years old. I used an assortment of old beach towels, and (his favorite) the fleece material that you can buy in fabric store that doesn't need to be hemmed. You just cut a big piece, fold it to fit, and you're ready to go. It washes very easily too!

I also vote for Fleece blankets and towels. I went to a second hand store (value village for those canadians out there) and they had a huge assortment of really nice fleece baby blankets for really cheap. I just washed them first in case (they are supposedly washed, but i don't trust them). They also have really good bath towels that i use as dog towels.

I have a bed for Katie that is indestructible. It is made by Halo and the only damage was to the tags that she chewed off. She has dragged it all over the room and tried to tear it apart but you would never know it. Highly recommend it.

I'd be very surprised if Kodi couldn't have destroyed it... he destroyed MANY "indestructible" toys... he even chewed the ends off BLACK (made for pit bulls) Kongs!
