New Dog bed

Hubby and I were shopping for Thanksgiving and Costco had a dog bed that we both believed would suit our Havs. The inner cushion was removable for washing purposes. We gave it to them for an early Christmas present.

They would not leave the inner cushion in the bed. We knew the next step would be that they chewed up the inner cushion. I sewed the inner cushion to the bed by hand.

Then they started transporting the entire bed (even with one dog in it sleeping) across the room ready to chew.

So now I have two 4# weights between the inner cushion and the bed (weights that are for son #2 for diving and his Christmas present). The bed is still where I placed it 2 hours ago.

Cheryl, I had a Golden Ret. that chewed every single bed we every bought her. Salsa loves her bed though. She dives into it and digs in it, but doesn't chew it.

I think they might be OK if they know it is not a toy. I guess I have bought them too many toys so they think everything I buy for them is a toy.

LOL Cheryl!

At first, I thought you meant that you sewed their bed to YOUR bed so they wouldn't be able to move it. Doh!

Izzy loves to drag her bed out of the crate and drag it all over the living room. I just let her do it, she doesn't chew it up.

When I first got Cuba a bed, he would try to tear it up. He would chew on it and flip it upside down. He was about 4 months. I brought it back out about a month later and he is much better with it. He will actually sleep in it although he prefers the hearth right next to it.

LOL, Cheryl! When I first bought Kubrick his donut bed he would take out the inner part ALL THE TIME. I was constantly putting it back in. After a while, though, the novelty wore off and now he's more than content to sleep in it!
