Buffy was never a chew monster, but Buster was. He'll be 2 at the end of February. He chewed holes in every bed he had access to and pulled out some stuffing until I realized what he was doing and removed the bed and stuffing from his crate or the living room floor.
I decided to use old towels and folded them up to fit his crate. He chewed those and also chewed the fleece blanket with which I covered his crate [He would pull it in through the wire bars.], but it was no great loss as we were no longer using them for their original purpose.
He is much better now but still seems interested in chewing anything soft and fleecy - he must think it is a toy for him.
I got serious about his carseat and sprayed Bitter Apple on all the straps, and that stopped him from destroyed them. You may want to try that on his bedding, but be aware that if you get it on your hands, you will be sorry. Inevitably, it will get to your mouth, and it is really bitter, so wear gloves when using the stuff. Also, Kobe will likely get some in his mouth even if he is not chewing on the bedding, and he will not be too happy about it.
