If you have a crate-trained dog, congratulations! Crate training is a difficult, long process but SO rewarding. Not only do you have a happier dog, but you’ll also potentially save your belongings from getting chewed up.
Dogs love to chew, everyone knows that. And a dog in its crate is likely to be a little bored and looking for something to do. Even if you put their favorite chew toy in, the compulsion to chew on something new is irresistible!
That’s where some chew-proof padding comes in.
If you’re looking at enhancing your dog’s little den, here are some mats and pads you can consider to make your furry friend just a tad more comfortable.

How Else To Spruce Up Your Dog’s Crate?
A dog crate can provide a safe, cozy haven for your furry friend. But if it’s not set up properly, it can be an uncomfortable place for your dog to spend time. Follow these simple tips to make sure your dog crate is as comfortable as possible.
First, choose the right size crate for your dog. It should be big enough for your dog to stand up and turn around in, but not so big that they can eliminate in one corner and sleep in the other. Secondly, make sure the crate is equipped with a comfortable bed, mat, or pad.
Finally, add a few toys or bones to the crate so your dog has something to do when they’re inside. If they are suitably entertained when being crated, maybe they won’t attack the bedding with their teeth!
By following these simple tips, you can turn your dog’s crate into a comfortable haven that they’ll love spending time in. A crate-trained dog is almost always happier and more independent than an untrained one.
