Are you in desperate search for a dog bed that can’t be chewed to pieces? I’ve been there and done that. I was able to train chewing dogs into non chewing dogs by getting a a chew-proof dog bed.
Training is like practicing, for that, you’ll need equipment (in this case a bed) that can withstand the beating during the training process. It only takes a dog a matter of seconds to destroy a dog bed, so using a durable dog bed to start or end the problem is a great method.
Now, there are a few ways to go about training your dog to stop chewing their dog bed. You can either:
#1. Purchase a durable dog bed and call it day (they’ll resume with trying to chew everything especially their bed and maybe give up, just maybe).
#2. Use the dog bed as a key piece of training equipment to correct the problem.
Hopefully you’ve answered to go with #2. Compulsive chewing is a serious problem and needs to be fixed. It’s one of the main reasons dogs get in so much trouble these days and inevitably end up in the pound.
What a chew-proof or chew-resistant dog bed (learn the difference here) allows you to do is catch them in the act and do what’s called “repetitive correction” – practice. With a dog bed they can’t destroy you’ll be able to get your point across during training without going through a couple hundred dog beds.
If your dog is a powerful chewer be sure to select bed options that are much tougher than the vinyl weave fabric shown in the video. That particular bed was used to correct mild digging and clawing. Either way, there is no way your dog can get their teeth on the fabric due to the unique manufacturing process of the bed.
Even after your dog has been trained out of their bad habits, these dog beds make great long term beds due to their even level therapeutic support. They are great for indoor or outdoor settings and are 100% rust proof.
Simply add a dog pad to the top for extra comfort and you’re set!
