We’ve all been there. You buy a cushy place for your pooch to sleep, and before you know it, the stuffing is all over the shop.

Some pooches just can’t seem to resist the urge to chew their bed. If that’s the case, then it’s time to up your dog bed game with an indestructible dog bed. We’ve rounded up super-durable (but still cosy) options for the chewers, the chompers, and shredders of the dog world.

Of course, you’ll want to make sure you’re making the best decision. So we’ve also included a guide filled with some things to think about.

Is there an indestructible dog bed?

Let’s be honest, it would be difficult to find something completely indestructible, especially when it comes to the nature of our chewy canines. So ‘indestructible’ to us means as chew-proof as you can possibly get, ultra-durable where possible, and/or waterproof (that last one is easiest to guarantee). This means your dog’s bed will last longer and hopefully resist those big gnashers.

Although these beds are marketed as ‘chew proof’ they may not always stand the big chompers of your pup. However, we have dug into a lot of research to bring you the best for all types of dog!

Why do dogs chew their bed?

There are many reasons why dogs chew their beds. Young dogs will chew to relieve teeth pain and to keep their teeth clean. They’ll also chew as a way of exploring and playing.

If your dog is well into adulthood, they may be tearing up their bed because it helps relieves stress, anxiety or boredom. It can also be a compulsive behaviour issue or gastrointestinal issue at play. Click here to read more about dog mental health issues.

Since your dog can’t tell you their feelings they turn to their chewing instinct to relieve the feeling. But, why the bed specifically? It’s because it’s soft and squishy like a prey animal would be and it brings them the most comfort.

In some cases destroying their beds is a part of play for many puppies and dogs, and to put it simply, they might just enjoy it! The goal of an indestructible dog bed is to make it so difficult to chew that they will get bored of trying. Using the bed like it should be used – to sleep and relax!

What materials to look for in an indestructible dog bed?

Buying an indestructible dog bed can be a hefty investment, so to help you make the right decision, here are a few things to look out for.

Some beds are designed with metals and plastics. These survive a lot longer than fabric, but can sometimes lack in comfort. Elevated framed beds are the most durable dog beds. They can help to steer the dog away from chewing while providing them with the comfort they need.

Dog beds that are made with durable, comfortable-looking fabrics can be hit and miss. You’ll want to avoid any beds with straps, buttons, pleats zippers, and piping as these are very inviting parts of the bed to chomp on. Instead, look for rounded pillow-type beds covered in a durable material such as Cordura Nylon, Ballistic Nylon, Vinyl Weave, Heavy-duty Vinyl.

Another feature you want to look out for is whether the dog bed is washable or not. Being able to pop it in the wash will save you money in the long run, especially when you have active pooches.

Bearing all of this in mind, we’ve pulled together and reviewed our top 10 indestructible dog beds for chewy canines. We’ve included a range of floor beds, elevated beds and beds snug enough for your dog’s crate.
