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 (as advertised) 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!
Indestructible Dog Beds
This bed is designed with a memory foam mattress that is water-resistant and has a tear-resistant cover. This comfy bed will seamlessly blend with your home. Pricing starts at $62.95 and these are available in small to XXL.
This metal-framed pet cot is intended for power chewers and will resist about 99 percent of chewing dogs. Enough said, right? Sizes range from small to XXL. Pricing starts at $109.00. Elevated dog beds are perfect for keeping dogs cool in the summertime.
You had us at Chew Guard technology. This bed is great for the inside of a kennel. The Chew Guard technology is for added durability and it fits most standard crates. Sizes range from XS to XXL. Pricing starts at $12.63.
Veehoo's elevated dog bed is sturdy enough for both indoor and outdoor comfort, and the elevation allows for cool air to pass under your pooch. Available in a range of colors from "Beige Coffee" to classic black, as well as a range of sizes, this bed and its rustless aluminum frame is made to last.
Remember: indestructible doesn't have to just apply to power chewers. Look no further than Cheerhunting's water-resistant, portable bed for all types of dogs!
Oxford cloth allows this bed to keep moisture away, and it's easy to wash. Blue isn't the only shade either, with colors like Brown, Olive Green and Orange for your hunting dog in training. This bed serves so many functions, whether that be a camping mat or keeping the back of your car (somewhat) clean. Important to note that Cheerhunting doesn't recommend this mat for aggressive chewers, but that doesn't mean it's not built to last through all types of adventures with you travel buddy!
With a brand like Carhartt backing this bed, you know durability is at the forefront. Known for long-lasting jackets, gloves and workman's attire, Carhartt's cotton duck canvas is sprayed with a water repellent to keep it dry, stuffed with Plush Sherpa Top interior for comfort, and is made for hardworking dogs in need of a relaxing rest. Starting at under $70, this indestructible dog bed feels like a steal.
Many dog beds lose their shape over time, which is a cost many dog owners aren't exactly excited to revisit over and over. The Dog's Bed created this long-lasting orthopedic and comfortable option that, while power chewers may not be so excited about, older dogs that kicked that habit will have a go-to place for months on end.
One Amazon customer commented on this design, "I have 3 of the beds, 2 large and 1 XL. All my dogs are over 80lbs, the largest 96lbs. I have had the beds for almost 2 years and they are in the same condition as they were when I purchased them."
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!
