    My dogs seem perfectly happy with a towel tossed in the crate. Most of their bodies are usually on a hard surface and their heads on the towel if that. I don't see any value to a full kennel pad in general. If you spoil the dog, perhaps a full padded kennel is of benefit, yet perhaps not.

    Some of my guys would shred and consume a towel...chewers sleep in empty crates here.

    Probably not much that could potentially be worse on a dog's stomach than a big pile of shredded towel.
