I have the ones from Home Depot and the same mat has been thru several dogs. Not problem and like said before too heavy to twist up in kennel.
Here is a link to the company and once you open it go to indoor uses then scroll down and click on kennel liner and the one I have in my box is the comfort title.

Never argue with an idiot. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
Bath mats make great crate pads (the mats for the bathroom floor, not the tub mats). Bath mats have a non-skid underside and are a perfect size for my crates. I like the cushiony ones made out of "memory foam," whatever the heck that is. If I expect the dogs to get wet or muddy, I put a towel over the bath mat and bring extra towels for toweling off the dogs before they go into a crate and replacing wet towels in the crate with dry towels. The bath mat keeps the towel from sliding around.
After wet, muddy days, all towels go straight into the washer when I get home. After an especially wet day, the bath mats go into the washer, too.
My dogs are not chewers and I'm usually traveling with only one or two dogs. Bath mats and towels would be impractical for someone carting around a whole pack of hounds.

Hydroturf works well. If you call them they often sell blemished product for cheap
I tried many of the kennel mats they usually end up cracked and fall apart in the cold. Now I just buy the military surplus wool blankets and put them in the kennels. Have heard mention of the memory foam bath mats from many people and I have yet to try them myself.

For me....plastic poultry flooring. Works great. Just cut to fit. Had mine now for four years. Diggers and chewers can't touch the stuff.
