When you have a dog that likes to chew, it can be hard to buy anything for him without fear of it being shredded to pieces. From squeaky toys and leads to dog beds and food bowls – some dogs just love to shred things, but talk about money down the drain!
So, we decided to help you guys out and let you in on a secret. Did you know that there are specific characteristics in products for dogs that often encourage chewing, and therefore – you can find products that actively discourage chewing?
We’re going to take a look at some of the best chew proof dog blankets, all of which feature a thin material that is known to be chew-proof, and far less tempting than the big poofy and overly padded dog beds on the market.
So without further ado, let’s run through our top five favorite blankets that are ideal for dogs that chew, and puppies who are teething!
1. PetFusion Premium
This reversible dog blanket by PetFusion is made from polyester fabric and makes an ideal comfy zone for your four-legged friend. Either use on its own in a crate, or on the floor – or throw it on their spot on the couch to save your furniture from the inevitable copious amounts of shedding!
- Weight – 12.6 OZ
- Material – Polyester
- Colors – Slate Grey, Chocolate

We don’t all have time to clean our house from top to bottom before guests come over, and one of my favorite features with the PetFusion bed is the fact that you can simply flip it over to its clean side – and hey presto, good as new!
Available in multiple sizes, with the small size being ideal for cats, or toy breeds – and the extra-large being a great option for multi-pet households that like to snuggle together, or for giant breeds such as the Great Dane.
With a dense fabric, this bed is pill-resistant and discourages chewing, as well as being reasonably tough against little teeth! Having said that, nothing is 100% chew proof – and it’s up to each dog owner to gradually teach their puppies not to eat everything!

This super cute dog blanket from Allisandro is perfect for the smaller dog breed. With a dark brown base, and multi-colored dog pawprint design – it doesn’t get much cuter than this!
- Weight – 6.4 OZ
- Material – Flannel
- Colors – Multiple

- Sizes – 31 x 24 IN
- Why It’s Recommended – Super easy to wash and fast drying
Made from a high-quality and long-lasting flannel fabric, you can easily throw this bed in the wash, and hang up to dry time and time again without losing quality, or causing the colors to majorly fade.
This bed is therefore ideal for dogs with incontinence issues, or those recovering from injuries as not many beds or blankets will cope with so many washes.
For dogs that attend doggie daycare but suffer from separation anxiety, sending them off with their blanket that smells like home can be a great solution. And while many daycares won’t allow owners to bring full beds in – the majority do allow blankets!
The lovely soft fabric makes this a great choice for puppies, or older dogs with sensitive skin. Rescued dogs recovering from mange, or other conditions that make their skin especially sensitive have been known to do very well with this type of blanket.
- Cute pawprint design
- Machine washable
- High-quality material
- Fast drying
- The bed can pill after multiple washes
- Colour looks lighter in person
- Sizing runs small
The fabric thickness and weight of the Allisandro are what help to make these chew proof dog blankets so unappealing to dogs that like to eat their beds, and instead encourages them to use their blanket for what it was intended – taking naps on!
5. Bogo Brands Fleece Blanket
Bogo Brands is a super lightweight dog blanket that is ideal for puppies going through their teething or biting phase.

If you don’t happen to own a dog car cover, this blanket can do the trick nicely for unexpected car visits. Heading to the vets and don’t want to get dog hair and dander all over your new car seats?

How could we not choose the simply stunning Pawsse Waterproof Dog Blanket as our winner?!
With so many gorgeous colors and patterns to choose from, I’ll be entirely honest and say that I would happily buy this as a blanket for myself, nevermind my dog!
With a super soft fleece bottom and waterproof top – you really get the best of both worlds with this generously sized dog blanket. And having the fleece as a base as opposed to all over really helps to make this blanket especially chew proof for those cheeky pups.
