Thread: Snowy keeps ripping her bed!

  1. #1

    Default Snowy keeps ripping her bed!

    I bought Snowy a new bed recently,

    this one specifically

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o03_s00_i00

    It's pretty pricey since its a Memory Foam pad.

    The bed comes with a water proof layer that is pretty sturdy, but the stupid zipper broke so i can not seem to put it back on, so lately I've been using some sheets from my bed that I dont use anymore, but snowy rips right through them with either her nails or teeth. She wasn't able to rip the top layer that it came with but since the zipper broke i cant put it back on which leaves the memory foam pad exposed and shes already taken quite a few chunks out of it which is not good.

    Do you guys know of any good material that is hard to rip? I want to wrap it around the memory foam pad


    any help would be appreciated thanks.

    that's why i don't buy nice beds for my boys anymore. I think since I've had them they've gone through 6 beds already (not to mention my own queen size one)! I got them one of those orthopedic beds from Cesar Milan...cost me a freakin' small fortune, and just a couple days later...ripped, torn to shreds. I know Cesar would've probably said "it's not what they're eating, it's what's eating them", or something like that, but i had enough and just got them two cheap crate pads at Target and no more beds. (Boy, felt good to get all that off my chest)!

    Sorry i couldn't be of more help!

    Been there, done that. Now I resort to buying the cheap beds at Ross. Good quality beds but cost very little so its no biggie to replace.

    I would like to continue using this orthepedic type bed to prevent hip displaysia or anything similar. Plus it was pretty pricey for a bed!

    I don't know how the original cover is constructed, but would it be possible to take it to a tailor and have the zipper replaced?

    My boys basically outgrew the habit, there was no stopping them before. As a temp solution, I'd wrap the bed in a blanket for now so it's useable, and maybe wait until she outgrows the habit before purchasing another expensive one.

    Someone that does alterations could replace the zipper.
    Ruggles is a bed shredder too so I bought crate liners from K-9 Ballistics. I cut off the label because that helps start the chewing. We've had them at least a couple months and he hasn't shredded them!
