Young dogs seem to chew anything within reach. In particular, they seem to like to gnaw on their bedding and, if not closely supervised, their baskets. This has some benefits though for their teeth and jaw muscle development.
Today’s invention is a puppy basket in a woven construction. The upper layers of the weave are made not of wicker, but of rawhide strips impregnated with a dental disinfectant.
The action of chewing the basket focuses the dog’s attention on this object, rather than other, more valuable, furniture.
Since the animal will soon grow out of both this bad habit and the basket itself, it might as well contribute to the pup’s health.
