Chew proof dog beds

Chew proof dog beds

Chew-proof beds are considered a number one necessity as well as preference for dog breeders, veterinarians, and kennels, as well as dog owners with experience.

When looking into a chew-proof bed, there are factors other than durability that you will need to look for. These include:

  • Comfort
  • Chew-proofing
  • Ease to cleanse
  • Ability to be used indoor/outdoor (depending where your dog stays)

Just because your dog likes to chew on stuff shouldn’t mean that he or she can’t sleep in comfort.

There are two main parts of a dog bed that you need to consider, when it comes to chew proofing. Many dog beds, such as nest beds and many luxury and designer dog beds, have frames that surround the actual padded area that your dog sleeps upon. Materials like wicker and wood are extremely chewable, and damage very quickly. Metals and chew-proof nylons and plastics are therefore a much more durable choice.

That’s the easy part. Now for the tough part. The fabric. Anything that is really soft will also get chewed. When it comes to ultimate durability, you’ll want nylon, preferably Cordura – or Cordura-like – nylon. You will want to have the design of the bed keep the fabric folds and seams tucked within a frame – hidden from teeth – in the case of the chewiest dog. It will provide a reasonable level of padding, and will most certainly get your dog up and off the hard, cold floor.

Cordura is an extremely useful type of nylon fabric that makes the outer shell of the bed virtually impenetrable to normal dogs. Even if your dog can eat through everything, this chew-proof fabric will usually endure. It is also waterproof, but it should be known that it will puddle in the rain.

What’s unique about it is that it is an extremely durable form of 100% nylon fabric, which is woven. It is resistant to:

  • Puncturing
  • Tearing
  • Ripping
  • Staining
  • Mildew

Used most commonly in high quality luggage, motorcycle jackets, backpacks, hiking boots, and military products, it is the absolute time tested and safest choice for chew proofing resistance against destructive dogs.

It is more durable than any other fabric used for dog beds. Chew proof dog beds depend on this fabric, or fabrics based on its principles in order to resist those stubborn dogs with the munchies.

To compare with other fabrics, it is:

  • Ten times more durable than cotton duck
  • Three times more durable than standard polyester
  • Twice as durable as standard nylon

Instead of simply being sewn together, many companies actually laminate the edges of the fabric, avoiding chewable seams.

What you’re aiming at most is tough substances, which haven’t got any 90 degree corners, holes, or notches that are appealing for little chewing teeth. You need something durable to withstand a good munch, and a fabric that will withstand pulling, digging, and chewing. Chew proof beds aren’t easy to find, but when you know what you’re looking for, it makes life a lot easier. It’s also cheaper, since you won’t need to keep replacing your dog bed with one more chew proof.
