I've given up on buying my beagle anything that resembles a nice bed. Now I just stock up on $10 fleece dog blankets. She likes them because the hay two layers. She'll chew a hole big enough to climb inside and sleep IN the blanket. Most mornings you cant see any part of her body, just a big lump in her blanket. However, she has chewed holes for her legs and head to poke out, if she feels like it. Some days she looks like she's wearing a poncho.
However, I wanted to know if anyone else had any trouble with a Rogz Pod dog bed. I went to the only place in town at the time that sold them, to ask a few questions. The guy assured me even the strongest chewer couldn't get through the kevlar (thats right, BULLET proof dog beds!) and that at most they'd wear it down over time. He even went so far as to tell me the company guaranteed against chewing and would replace the bed if it were chewed through. Which I thought was far fetched, but it sold me on the bed. I figured even though it was pricey, surely in the long run it would be cheaper that buying her several beds in the span of a few months.
I got it home, by the next day it was RUINED. I contacted the company and got told "Why on earth would we guaruntee against chewing, thats rediculous" Well, duh. I thought so too, but thats what I was told. So I didn't get my money back or anything.
Apparently the beds are bullet proof, not beagle proof. She can and will chew through anything. Theres no toys we can buy her that she cant wreck. She has learned to not chew what isn't hers, so its not an issue so much anymore.
I would like to know if anyone has had any success with these beds though. She chews much less than she did before, and all I really need to replace is the matress part, which is cheap. Maybe if I throw a blanket in, she would stick to chewing her blankets. I would like to know first if anyone else has heard anything bad about these beds though.
