    Default What Pad Do You Use For Dogs

    I have indoor/outdoor kennels but my shop is not heated so the dogs go through spring loaded doors right into Igloo dog houses. The pads made for igloos will not hold up to chewing. I have looked at the Primopads and others but I was just wondering what someone else may recommend. I also have 3 Ruff Tough kennels that I want to put pads in.

    Might go to the feed store, to see what they have for the Horse stalls.
    1/2" - 5/8" thick, you'll need a razor knife & straight edge & perhaps WD-40 as lubricant to cut'em up....

    I'll second the second the rubber mat used in horse stall.

    had the same problem with chewing. Friend gave me a piece from his stalls. Never had another problem.

    Super tuff and heavy. Just be careful cutting. Use a new razor, straightedge and take it slow. It will take a good number of passes to get through.

    Tractor supply would probably have something.

    I just happened to think about the mats I have in my slide in box. It has the perfect rubber mats with about one inch holes in it. They came from the manufacturer of the dog box. Does anyone know where you can get sheets of this type of mat. I would say the mat is 5/8" thick with about 1" holes that are a half to 3/4" apart. It's an ultra heavy duty rubber mat and it has been in my slide in box for 3 years and looks like new. Has not been chewed.

    I have seen some mats like you are describing at a restaurant supply house.

    I have a chewer... Even chewed three Primo pads. She now rides on the plastic crate floor. The stall mats seem to defeat the purpose. They are harder and rougher than the flor of the crate. IMO. I use Ruff Tough crates.
