Hi,
our 7 month old Patterdale is a lovely little dog..very clever still teething and will go into his crate at bedtime with no bother, the problem we have is he eats his bedding and I mean he doesen't just chew it he swallows some of it. We have gone through 2 crate matresses, so decided to use towels folded neatly he chewed them and ate small amounts of them, we are scared of the damage he will do to himself with blockages. So we tried with no bedding it didn't work as he walked around his crate all night and whined and barked. We have looked everywhere on line for ideas and chew proof bedding with no luck!! anyone out there got any ideas would be much appreciated on how to solve this problem before he injures himself.

Kind Regards

Terry

I'm afraid many puppies chew their beds at that age. Giving them a filled Kong, that's been in the freezer, to gnaw at in the evening helps. The best bedding I've found with mine is good old Vetbed. I've no idea why but they don't seem to chew that.

I wish my 8 month old wouldn't chew his vetbed! To be fair he just tears it rather than chewing it up. I have a bit of vetbed plus a thick wool blanket in his crate and that seems to be working (apart from the edges of the vetbed). He also has a selection of bones, hooves, chew roots, and other safe things to gnaw on.

When my twins were young, the vetbed went in rectangular and came out oval with all the corners chewed off! But my latest, Nell, hasn't chewed vetbed. Destroyed other bedding, though. I tried a kong, but she chewed chunks off and ate them.
