new member with a 6 month old Vizsla that's a chewer

hi everyone, I've been reading your posts and decided to become a member. I need help with my 6 month old male that is a chewer. He has chewed 5 beds within minutes. Can anyone help?

Only one of mine was a very heavy chewer, compared to the others. She chewed holes in just about every bed until she was 2. I mainly just used old towels for bedding, after many attempts at sewing up her bed. And even trying to cover it with older pillow cases.
She just enjoyed chewing, and even chewed a down comforter when I let her sleep with me. It was replaced with a handmade quilt, and it also has some edges chewed on it.

I use single fleece pieces/blankets only and never had any issues. Not so much fun to chew, I guess. My girl is 7 months. You can get some cheap on clearance at fabric stores or at places like Walmart.

Our Beagle Terrier mix chewed corners off of pillows (and the corner of one book which amusingly just happened to be titled "how to obedience train your dog). All destructive chewing stopped once we started getting toys for her to destroy. She would immediately set on a mission to rip the stuffing out of a new toy and extract the squeaker. Never had a problem with her consuming stuffing or parts, so that worked for most of her 20 year lifespan. A new toy every 2 to 3 weeks seemed to be enough to satisfy her, and she would still get in tug of wars with the toy remnants with any willing canine or human opponent.

For Sadie our Vizsla toys last forever since she does not chew them, she does love to chew on rawhide rolls though, and that is her special treat when we leave her home alone. Sadie will certainly chew her way out of any confinement, but that is a whole other story.

No bed or blanket will make it through a couple hour kenneling with Miko. Plain white towels are all he seems to spare. So we just throw a few in the bottom of his kennel. They are inexpensive from walmart, and easy to clean. He won't usually chew on his living room bed(he isn't allowed on our furniture so we have a dog bed just for him with the rest of the family), but has chewed it before if we're not giving him enough attention.
