    I didn't check for that since I wanted the whole kit and caboodle but given the cost of plastic replacement trays, $50.00 for a whole new crate (including shipping) might not be an unreasonable alternative. You can donate the trayless one to a rescue or something. These crates have 3 doors as well. The additional one on the top is real helpful if you need to get something in or out of the crate but not the dog. PM me for a link if you'd like since we're not supposed to post those.

    I know you guys are talking about crate pads but if you want a bed that seriously is indestructible check out the kurando beds, the frame is made out of aluminum and the elevated bed surface is made out of kevlar that sleeves into the aluminum frame so there is no exposed edges. It is expensive up front but the ultimate cost of bed replacements will make it worth while in the end. I've had mine for 3-4 months now and Bacon loves it and hasn't made a dent in it. They also guarantee the material for a certain amount of time.

    They also make the Kuranda for the crates! Great bed! My Zeus has one and I just bought my gran dog one for Christmas! He will be so excited because he loves Zeus's but Zeus won' let him have it for very long before he makes him move!

    Ha. You guys are so cute. Your bullies get crate pads! Gunny pees on and/or eats everything in his crate. He is destined to just have the hard bottom to lay on.

    I just got sumo a crate pad. it is so comfy i dont know why she wouldn't want to let it be and enjoy sleeping on it. She is pretty good about not chewing teh bed when she is in there alone. i have tied a sheet around it , and all the way around the crate pan so it is hard. she tries to dig at it! i close the crate when i am home so she can't get in. if i turn my back i bet she'll be in there digging and chewing!

    Sancho is weird...he won't chew blankets, but we got him one of those Kong crate beds and he tore that up the first day. Sigh. I guess he just gets a mound of blankets. It may be a good idea to tie the blanket around the entire bed and crate pan, like SUMOPUP did. I think he might just sense the "squishiness," though and end up chewing through the sheet to the bed.

    I would be interested in the Kuranda crate beds. I wonder how much they are... hmmm...

    Any new ideas or suggestions on a crate mat? Came home the other day and Ace had pulled his apart at the zipper and pulled the foam padding apart and torn to shreds. I'm sure if I would have read through some of the EBN forums before getting Ace I would have still done so, I love him but wow what a load! Still my biggest concern and complaint is his harrassment of the 2 yr old nutered Maltese. When Ace gets tunnel vision on the Maltese it's a constant and repetitive NO NO NO

    My breeder said to just use lots of old towels, and that's exactly what we're going to do. But I couldn't resist the beds and did get one, but for the living room.

    Old blankets I found was they way tO go. You have to try to curb the chewing also. He needs to learn what he can & can't chew!

    Thanks, I think I will try the blanket and towels for bedding. Should be easier to wash up too. Your right about the chewing, its a constant battle too. I always stop him when he is chewing on something inappropriate and replace it with something allowable. I started Ace out on a blanket with an old towel and a flannel shirt minus all the buttons. But since then I ordered a bed online with a groupon and before it arrived my wife had bought two others at different times. He has outgrown the ones she bought and tore the one I bought up
