Is your dog a power chewer? Our staff lives with a few breeds that are notorious chewers! After reviewing beds with our dogs and researching the testimonials we've narrowed down the list to seven indestructible dog beds.
It's important to always redirect chewing when you catch your dog enjoying the corners of the new dog bed you bought them! This could be pointing to separation anxiety or even a medical issue so always make sure you're getting your dog to the vet for regular visits. We'd love to hear from you about these beds as power chewers are challenging when you simply want to give them dog beds for their power naps!
These may not be 100% chew proof but they're close!

Many brands say they have indestructible dog beds but make sure you read the reviews! These choices above are designed for power chewers and the beds range from chew proof dog beds, waterproof beds, beds made with memory foam material, crate pads for dog crates, and some even have removable covers. Older dogs also benefit from many of these options so it's a win-win for your senior "destructive dog" if they need a new bed that is essentially an orthopedic dog bed made for tough dogs.
Dog owners should also look at the warranty to see if they provide a year warranty or if it's less than a year. Is the bed machine washable or is there a removable cover? Our staff kept those features in mind while we researched this article. If we had to vote for the best indestructible dog bed we'd lean towards the Orvis brand. Staff tip: Another brand to consider is Big Barker for big dogs.
And even moderate chewers benefit from a durable dog bed as you may catch them chewing on the corners every once in a while!
Creative solutions? Have a variety of bed covers that you order proactively when you know your dog isn't a saint. The other tip we recommend is to always have Kongs available and chew toys!
