Tough Dog Beds for Persistent Chewers

Our durable ToughChew® dog beds know how to take a beating—or a biting. The ripstop nylon double-layer construction in our chew-resistant dog beds is specifically engineered to withstand even the most persistent chewers, diggers, and all-around bed-shredders. Even if your pet has run through a tough dog bed before, he has finally met his match in this one. The tear- and chew-resistance in this line is the best you’ll find anywhere, period—and we back up that claim with a 100% quality guarantee. We’re confident any product from this collection will win your pet’s paw print of approval. Because this isn’t just a tough-as-nails pet accessory—it’s the most durable dog bed around.

As rugged as the bed is, the material in its liner is also surprisingly soft, offering a sense of total comfort when your dog tires out and settles down. Our heavy-duty bolster and platform dog beds come with memory foam or an eco-friendly fill so your dog can enjoy superior comfort. And when your four-legged friend tracks in four paws’ worth of mud, never fear: Each of our sturdy dog beds comes with a removable cover you can machine wash at home, so it’ll look great even after your dog does his worst.

Why Does My Dog Chew His Bed?

For most adult dogs, chewing is a healthy behavior they reserve for their toys and treats. But destructive chewing can be a sign of stress in your dog—separation anxiety, or something else in his environment may drive him to chew his bed compulsively. Boredom may also be the culprit; a restless or frustrated dog without a positive outlet for pent-up energy may divert it towards his bed.

How Can I Stop My Dog From Chewing His Bed?

Here are a few strategies to try—but be patient with yourself and your dog as you introduce and practice them.

  1. Give your dog plenty of safe, sanctioned toys to chew. Build an obsession in him for his own things by feeding him via a refillable food toy.
  2. Identify and then eliminate any stressors that set off your dog. This strategy may seem obvious, but it’s the most efficient solution for the dog who chews his bed to relieve anxiety. Figure out the triggers—boisterous children, thunder, and fireworks are common ones. Try moving your dog’s bed out of harm’s way.
  3. Leave on a television or radio when you’re away. Music albums composed and recorded specifically to soothe dogs may also be effective.
  4. Give your dog plenty of daily opportunities for exercise and play. Routinely engaging him with rigorous exercise and games will help him stay calm when he’s inside: A tired dog is a good dog.
  5. Talk to your veterinarian. If your dog suffers from extreme anxiety, he may need behavior therapy. Your vet can help you find a specialist in your area who can help your destructive chewer.

It’s in a dog’s nature to bring in muck, to chew, and to dig. But those indelicate manners are all just part of the canine package we love so much. Show your love by giving your pet a tough dog bed he can feel free to get attached to—this may finally be the most effective chewing deterrent of all.
