Top Chew Resistant Dog Bed Choices

A chew resistant dog bed is a smart buy for dogs of any age. 

What’s with dogs and their beds, anyway? One minute they are enjoying its comforts and the next they are attempting to rip it to shreds! 

When we first got our young, 8 week old puppy, we went searching for the perfect dog bed and of course ended up spending a fortune on a beautiful organic stuffed dog bed. We couldn’t wait to offer this new, cozy bed to our sweet puppy.

Guess how long it lasted… 

3 days!

Obviously we learned our lesson fast and we’re happy to share this lesson with you… if your dog is the chewing type, avoid spending a fortune on multiple sleeping spots and invest in a chew resistant dog bed. 

This page reviews our favorite three...

The Big Shrimpy Planet-Friendly Original Beds

The  Big Shrimpy Planet-Friendly Original Beds not only have a really great name, they also have an honorable manufacturing process that uses strictly recycled materials and environmentally safe processes.  They manage to do this and still produce a functional, comfortable and stylish product.

This particular bed is one that fits under the virtually chew resistant dog bed category because it’s made with very strong materials and is also moisture and dirt resistant.

The zippered outer cover is made from 420 denier nylon packcloth with a polyester fleece sleeping surface.  The outer cover surrounds an inner cover made from ripstop nylon and filled with Smartfill, a 100% recycled fiber.  Both the outer and inner cushion are machine washable.

Though this is a very durable dog bed, it is not guaranteed to be chew resistant.  If it feels like your dog has the ability to chew through steel, then one of the other options would be preferable.  If your dog is a casual chewer, then this bed should be able to stand strong!

Qualities include:

  • Weather resistant outer and inner surface
  • Odor resistant and machine washable
  • 100% Eco-Friendly materials
  • Soft yet durable fleece lined sleeping surface
  • Available in four sizes and many colors
  • Price ranges between $84 and $137

Big Shrimpy also donates a percentage of sales to a nonprofit organization that develops environmentally sustainable business practices.

The Indoor/Outdoor Plastic Bed

The Indoor/Outdoor Plastic Bed is a virtually chew proof dog bed that is also weather proof.  Its tub-like structure creates a comfortable den feel that is very easy to clean.  It also allows you to use a washable padding of your choice as lining, depending on your activity and usage.

This plastic chew resistant dog bed has vents along the bottom of the tub which prevent puddling in case your dog has an accident.

It may not look like a fancy designer dog bed, but it will surely make any chewing an effort in futility! Plus, dogs love the high sides of the bed because it makes them feel safe and secure.

  • Features high sides and back for a secure place to rest

The Orvis Toughchew Dog’s Nest’s simple circular design (it comes in other shapes as well) and chew resistant double liner can stand up to the most persistent of chewers.
