Doodle is a stress chewer, not destructive but with marrow bones or occasionally cow hooves. After doing a bunch of research I decided to get her a deer antler, specifically a large (6-8″) from Heartland Antlers on Amazon:
She wasn’t sure what to make of it at first:
But then figured out it was something to chew on:
She ended up taking it into the playhouse and fell asleep:
Not sure if that was boredom with the antler or simply fatigue but I decided to soak it in broth:
I’ll let it cool overnight and see what she thinks of it tomorrow.
I hesitate to say ‘happy’…the dogs were so disgusted by the bunny ears, these were the best shots I could get 😂
The floor of the playhouse is the same material as the sides and top which makes it somewhat difficult to clean. The vacuum tries to suck the material in so I got to the point where I’d just wrestle the whole house outside and try to shake it clean.
I researched round rugs as an option but couldn’t find anything simple and relatively inexpensive. Thanks to a few Facebook friends though we now have a solution!
The K&H Self-Warming Cuddle Ball Dog Bed happened to be on clearance from Sierra Trading Post, marked down from $70 to $31 for the 48″ large. After measuring the floor I thought that might be a bit too large but ordering smaller would result in a gap between the bed and walls where dirt would accumulate.
It arrived less than a week after ordering and it’s definitely a big bed but I’m so happy with it: fits perfectly, the colors are nice, and it fluffs right back after the dogs have been laying on it. They were a little hesitant at first because of its height but quickly made the adjustment for getting in & out of the house. These are all pics from the day it arrived:
