I got rid of the elbow calluses by cleaning the area with a dilute iodine solution and then applying a tiny amount of Penaten cream.
I've seen these beds before in a few training places for sale, do you really think Anna can't chew it? There a bit expensive I'd hade to spend another 100.00 if she will eat it

Anna gets Canidae Pure, no sugars corn wheat or soy, only 8 ingredients (the pure line is very very clean) so it's not her food he's high drive working line and she's my IPO dog so I need we energy to be this way I LOVE her excitement.

When she is in her crate she always has a bone, normally more then one, he doesn't try to escape or cry to get out she goes in when asked no issue at all, she is fully crate trained- she just eats plush, she always has haha Anna has zero soft dog toys, she can and will swallow them/shred them. She's been that way since day one, now she only gets toys when we work so that they are special.

trcy My dog ate one crate bed and I did not replace it. He did not ingest the bedding though. Just shredded it.

Today I noticed he took the blanket out of my small dog's crate, but he did not tear it up. He just left it outside of the crate.

Kahrg4 I measured the crate tray and cut a piece of leftover carpet to fit. It's not as soft as a bed but kept Finder from getting pink elbows (his fur is white). A lil double sided sticky tape and we were in business. Might be a cheaper way to go than constantly buying bedding.

Sunflowers They can chew on the legs, but you only get tooth marks.
The fabric goes into a track and they can't get to it.

How is this chew proof? If it is, I may get one.

Sunflowers You can find it at Amazon.

Many dogs get it because of staph. Not necessarily because of pressure. Whatever was the cause, I got rid of my dog's elbow rash. I had a before pic somewhere.
