Dog Beds....

    Perry will destroy any bed I put in his kennel. His allowance has been $20 a week for some kind of bed.
    He can't have blankets, as he eats them. The dog in the kennel next to him cannot have blankets, as she will slide them under her kennel to the next dog and they play tug of war. So, no blankets.
    I have tried cheap beds, expensive beds and elevated beds, the last ones were from Chewy, the Frisco and the Coolaroo. both failed.
    I found these from k9 ballistics, with a 60 to 120 day warranty. The elevated bed has the 120 day warranty.
    Does anyone have any experience with these beds? I'm thinking of the elevated one.

    I've never seen one of these.
    I have heard the Ruff Tuff Kennel pads hold up really well, but luckily, my dogs are pretty easy on beds.

    I don't have any experience with the K9ballistics, but these Kuranda Aluminum Crate Beds are the only one that have worked for Booker.
    And we went through a lot of beds before settling on these - no issues since.

    Vicki just out of curiosity. Does he eat all blankets? Only ask cuz Brooklyn eats blankets but only if there fluffy. If it's like a microfiber or something not "Fluffy" she's fine. I'm sure you tried all blankets. Just throwing it out there

    If a dog is a chewer of material bedding then it's best and safer if an owner switches to paper as the bedding.

    Rocco wrecked the ballistics tuff crate pad shortly after the warrenty wore out lol. I would imagine the fluffier one would have been sooner. He also eats blankets, now he gets nothing.

    Im sorry but all these companies are not making "bulldog proof" items, i have come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as bulldog proof unless it's solid steel lol. Bulldogs are not normal dogs, they are unlike any breed on this planet, if they decide to shred or destroy something, it's gonna get destroyed, ive seen them chew metal up with no problem. Knowing Perry, that bed wouldn't last long.

    Teddy was on a kuranda bed for 134 days at the high kill shelter. I think they work well for dogs who chew up beds. He is nuts about any blanket or bedding with padding in it. He wants to tear it up if it has stuffing.

    Its all about discipline....My Chihuahua at first would destroy her bed but I had to get firm and scold her by telling her a firm no and letting some of my emotional anger out so she could sense I was not pleased......My chihuahua sleeps at a set time which is the same time I go to sleep so for the first couple days the only time she has a bed is when we go to sleep and if she tries to bite it I yell at her no.....now she dont destroy her bed anymore but then again she is a very smart dog and not all dogs are the same but in time it should work if you put in the time and nip it in the bud early on as its harder to teach a old dog new tricks....I am called the Mix breed Dog Whisperer. LMAO

    From what Vicki has told me, it's hard for one to chew them beds up with the way they are made.

    Like @Nat Ursula 's Teddy, Trusty came out of Carson, CA AC. He was on a Kuranda Bed there, when we pulled him. Such are the privileges of a freshly neutered dog there :) Fast forward to our home: chewed up ANY blanket in his crate. We did switch to newspapers for a while, and the goof gave up the habit after several years - and once he had conquered the bed ...

    I did this and Raven ate the damn paper. :confounded: Crazy paper shredding maniac mutt. ugh. Anyway, my vote is the kuranda, that worked for us.
