Indestructible Dog Beds :
Top 5 Reviewed

Indestructible dog beds… is there really such a thing? It seems like there are certain dogs capable of destroying just about anything you leave at their disposal.

If this sounds like your dog, rest assured that there is an answer to your dog bed dilemma.

We’ve researched the options and have come away with these 5 as the most indestructible dog beds out there...


Big Shrimpy Planet-Friendly Original & Nest Beds (OPD's Top Picks)

In addition to the company's quirky name, the Big Shrimpy Planet-Friendly Original Beds and Nest Beds get our top picks for several reasons (we'll get into the differences between them in a moment)...

Big Shrimpy Planet-Friendly Original Beds Medium Plum

Big Shrimpy Original Bed

  • They're made with an extremely durable outer cover that will prevent your little chewer from getting through to the inside. If your dog does eventually wear the cover down (or you just want a new look), Big Shrimpy can sell the 12 available covers separately so you don't have to buy a whole new bed.
  • They're liquid and odor resistant and do a great job preventing urine and other liquids from getting through.
  • They're ridiculously comfortable. We sat and laid our heads on each and were tempted to doze off instead of writing this review.

Big Shrimpy Nest Bed

  • All parts are entirely machine washable, so you can wash only the parts that need it - including the innermost SmartFill filling - without any damage to the bed.
  • They have a 3 year warranty on any manufacturer defect - just send it in and they'll repair it or replace it.
  • Last but not least, the majority of the bed is made from recycled material. And if for whatever reason you decide to get rid of it at some point, Big Shrimpy is the only company we know of that has committed to recycling all of its old beds for no charge.

Our previously-purchased regular pet-store-bought beds typically lasted no more than a year and a half and did not have replaceable covers. As long as you follow Big Shrimpy's washing recommendations, you can expect the Original and Nest Bed covers to last from 5 to 7 years and the insides to last at least 15 years. This will save you anywhere from $500 to $1,300 over the 15-year life of the bed.

So which is better... the Nest style or the Original style?

It really depends on your dog and her sleeping preferences. If your dog is a snuggler or likes to curl up, the Nest is for her. Go with the Original style if your dog is more of a sprawler or weighs over 110 pounds.

Outside of the design, the only real differences are the amount of recycled material used and the sizes available. The Original style is made up of 85% recycled material and comes in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes, while the Nest uses 74% recycled material and comes in small, medium and large sizes.

The price for each bed is comparable by size and ranges from the mid to high $90's (for the small) to $199.99 (for the x-large original bed).

If you're on the fence, don't worry too much... you and your dog will love either of 'em. Click the following links for more info...
