I have a great dane with separation issues and she would make confetti out of anything in her kennel.  So, I folded up a blanket and put it UNDER the hard plastic pan.  She still had to sit on hard plastic, but I felt a little bit better knowing the hard plastic wasn’t directly on the hard floor. 

Also, if she’s just bored or stressed and becoming destructive because of that, maybe try freezing some peanut butter in a kong and giving that to her to keep her occupied?

Oh man, that’s difficult!  This company claims their bedding is chew-proof: http://www.k9ballistics.com

When my dog went through his insane-chewing-through-everything-including-the-lineolum-floor phase, we used to fill Kong dog toys with food and peanut butter, then freeze them.  He’d be busy for quite a while, maybe you can try putting one in the crate with your dog too?  It might also be worth your time and money to work with a professional dog trainer. 

Good luck, I am hoping this is just a phase and will end soon.  🙂

Chew proof is a false claim i gave my dog everything that said chew proof longest lasting one made it a weekand that was towards the end of his phase.

My puppy is 5 months old and we kennel him as well. we make sure to put ALL of his toys in there with him and he has about 15 because he’s teething and we wanted to give him as many options as possible. Also, it could be because of anxiety so when you go to sleep one nigt, sleep on top of the towel you will put in his cage. It will have your scent and it will help him with his anxiety.

We have the same problem with my dog and she is a year and a half! She poked holes in her bed and pulled the stuffing out. She only does it overnight though. Hopefully you find something that works, I have yet to.

I have an 11 month old puppy (today she is).  I put towels, blankies, t-shirts in the crate.  She ate through every single one, even a robe.  She started having intermittent choking fits which was obviously from eating through the material.  I felt bad, wanted her to be comfy SO BAD!  Until she grows out of it (I;m praying she will) it is the bare crate!  I’d rather be sure she is safe and healthy.

Don’t put anything! You’re just encouraging her by putting something in there. Furthermore, she  could learn to associate towels/blankets with things she is allowed to chew – her property. Don’t feel bad, her internal body temperature is so warm, she won’t feel the cold of the plastic!
