bite suit bed?

awhile back someone posted a link to purchase dog beds made of bite suit material. i'm trying to find it and cant...help? Deckard's getting to the point where i *think* i can trust him with a bed, but i'd like to get something tougher than the cheap beds i could buy at Costco. those won't survive his teeth if he gets gnawy.

I am the sea witch. I am the tide you fear and the turning you can't deny. I am the sound of the waves running over your bones on the beach, little man, and I am not amused at finding you on my doorstep.

You mean one like this?

K-9 Ballistics Chew Resistant Deluxe Rectangle Bed - TheUncommonDog.com

I personally would look into one of the kuranda beds if you aren't sure whether your pup is ready for a real bed though.. That is what I use in the crate until I am 100% certain we are done chewing. I do not want to risk a possible obstruction..

Here's my original thread about the SynTek Bite Suit Bed:

Dobie Proof Bed Combo (So Far)!

Followup- Since we got our second Dobie, Eva, she has earned the moniker "The Shredder"! Eva has been able to destroy things our Doberboy, Spock has had for 2-1/2 years since he was a puppy. This includes toys, beds and other items.

The Ray Allen bite suit bed we use is placed either on floor in our bedroom or atop a Kuranda crate bed. Eva managed after a month to open the zipper on the bite suit bed and extract the foam padding. So now, Miss Eva sleeps on the bed sans padding, atop the Kuranda crate bed. She also likes to go in Spock's crate during the day and started to chew on the Syntek material. We always give her a Nyla-Bone in her crate to keep her busy.



Eva on SynTek Bed & Spock on Costco Bed (After Both Passed OB class)




Spock on Bite Suit Bed atop Kuranda Crate Bed



Conclusion- For most Dobies the Bite Suit bed will work well compared to normal stuffed dog beds (Spock used to perforate those). But for the extreme DoberShredder, like our Eva, they are not totally indestructable. I wish they would also make the bottom out of SynTek as well. Then I would stuff them with rubber material like what they make Cuz or Hollee Roller toys out of! (Hey, sounds like a good business opportunity!)
