Our grandmother’s dog like to eat her bed. So she asked for a solution to this issue or at least a cheaper alternative to the dog bed.
Taking some of my grandmother’s old towels (3 that are destined for the rag bin). Fold them to the appropriate size. Take some canvas fabric or really the cover to the bed that was already destroyed.
Wrap the towels and sew it up. We did this for a friend using her towels and she said that her boxer now gets mad if you try to wash the bed.

Fold them to what size? “Take some canvas or really the cover” and do what? Wrap the towels up where?????
Can you describe this a little more clearly, I can’t visualize what you’ve done.

She’s essentially used a piece of canvas much like a pillow case and slipped them over towels (used as the padding) to make the bed and then sewn them in place. The size you choose will be dependent on the size of your dog, she may have used a handtowel for a chihuahua – you might have a great dane and use a blanket in the middle.
Here are recommended sizes:

Thank you for the sizing chart. I took old bath towels and folded them to fit in the cage. Depending on the size of the cage you may have to arrange the to get the most effective padding.
Ie you might have an extra small fold and need to rotate the stack so that fold is on different sides or you can cut to fit. The covering needs to fit over the padding. Before you sew it up you might want to have your dog test it out to see if comfortable enough.
If you have issues with getting them out of the cage you are good. Then you can sew it up. I try to make sure that the fabric is machine washable.
