So, i bought my little buddy Coltrane a Snoozy brand fleece bed for inside his crate. He loves it. He snuggles up in it and seems like he likes it very much. He has always had a thing about him (he is 1 year old) where he just tears stuffed animals up and throws the stuffing everywhere. Today i noticed he had bitten a hole in the snoozy and pulled some stuffing out. Then he started hacking like a cat trying to hack up a hairball. He has done this a few times today. I suspect he is eating his snoozy. Do you think i should take it away from him? Can he get sick if he eats some of the fleece? He isn't acting sick at all mind you, just the aforementioned hacking. I am just worried about my little buddy.

Our dachshund Minna does this- in the 2 1/2 years we've had her, she's disembowled so many nice doggie beds that I finally gave up. She now sleeps under my husbands desk, in the legwell: I throw 3 soft fleece blankets into the leg well area, she tosses them over herself and burrows into them and she seems happy with this arrangement.

Paul and I call it her hovel. :blink:

So I don't really have an answer to your question: I worried about the same thing, really couldn't come up with a solution to make her stop tearing bedding up, and ended up just keeping things like that away from her.

FWIW most of mine just have a piece of the artifical fleece fabric for the bottom of the crage and they general prefer it to any of the bedding type crate pad. That is if the don't decide to scrunch it up in the corner and lie on the cold hard crate bottom :eek:
