Bed-eater | Dog Shaming This is the second bed he has destroyed. I think he’s trying to tell me something. Either that, or he’s just a douchebag.
My beagle has chewed up three, maybe 4 dog beds already. He doesn’t like the material. So we’ve had to experiment. -_-
My dog chews up his bed when he’s mad at me for not paying attention to him
My dog ate 2 beds in less than a week when she was around 5-6 months. Then she got past that phase. I think it’s correlated with teething and boredom when crated. Try putting toys in with him or let him have just a blanket for awhile til you can transition him back to a bed 🙂 good luck!
My beagle thinks his beds are chew toys. After buying Three, I finally wised up. He sleeps on his chewed up blanket, my bed (which he doesn’t chew), or on the bare bottom of his crate (when I go out). He’s not quite a douchebag, but he does try my patience!
My little foster dog has done this to about 3 or 4 beds now, even with chew toys in there with her. She just gets blankets now (and toys still of course).
Have the exact same bed for the little dog and have the same green stuffing all over my living room floor right now!!!!!
We lost one bed within 1 week. Then went out and bought a metal oil pan from Home Depot. Nutmeg, the jack russell (and 3 blankets) fit in there perfectly.
I love my costco beds, no dog has ever destroyed them. I wish they made dog toys because those things don’t last a day.
What he is trying to tell you: “I thought I made myself clear. I do not want to sleep in a dog bed. The couch or your bed will do nicely.”
He’s bored and likes to chew. Give him one of those toys you fill with peant butter in the crate. If he does it outside the crate, give him a RAW bone — not processed. Keeps mine busy long after the marrow is gone and keeps his teeth in perfect condition.
Patsouthward is right, he needs to chew when he’s bored. Raw bones are good for dogs, no chicken/rabbit or either tiny bones though, too dangerous (they swallow them and can get hurt pretty bad). Get a huge one, my mini Dasch loves her raw bone (as big as her head) !
