Default Bedding for teething puppies

I am at a loss what to put down for bedding in Moko's crate while he is in his teething stage. I came home to a shredded cloud today

Any suggestions?

If you can't be there to redirect the chewing you might have to leave the bedding out.

Better he lay on a hard surface than get plugged up with bedding he's eaten!

A close friend of mine had an adorable lab puppy that ate everything she tried to put down in the crate for him to lay on; pillows, blankets, throw rugs, and there were even multiple attempts to eat the bottom of the crate itself. She ended up removing everything except some very tempting chew toys from the crate at night or when she didn't have him in view and putting a thick 'non-stuffed' fleece throw in during the day when she could watch him. As soon as she saw any attempt to chew the fleece she removed it and put the chew toy back. Eventually he got the idea and stopped chewing in the crate but when he was a bit older and they were adding an extension to their house, she came home to find him chewing on a huge hunk of concrete that he somehow chewed off the floor ! Labs :-)

Tilba ate the cover off her bedding & ate copious amounts of grass & made herself sick. I went through all the bits to make sure it was all there. Thankfully it was. For a while she had no bedding, now she has old sheets I cut up to fit her bed. When they get dirty I throw them away.

Definitley nylabones and kongs. They keep Oscar busy and thankfully, he has yet to chew his bedding. *fingers crossed*
