|Our dog also loves to chew. She especially loves stuffed things, so toys or pillows or beds or comforters would just be so quickly destroyed. We don't think she purposely ingests things, but we know she does swallow pieces from time to time.
We like the cheap fleece throw blankets. The thinner the fleece, the less she chews. This means replacing them less often.
I know that many say this behavior can be "fixed" with exercise or attention. Our dog chews blankets after a long run, walk, or chasing one of us on a mountain bike for 8 miles. We shower her with attention and she continues to chew, even in front of us. While I could see it being a habit from previous nervousness (she was a shelter dog for a while), I don't think there is more we can do to keep her from chewing, short of keeping her crate empty.
Friends have recommended these crate pads, but we haven't tried them:
