personally i dont like it unless you are prepared to replace it every 2 or 3 days, as it compresses and damp dogs turn it into paper mache!!

i use the shredded greyhound paper and i find it brilliant i fluff it up every couple of days and a bedfull will last me a month in the wsummer and around 2 to 3 weeks in the winter ... because it is a grease proof type paper it doesnt stay wet and dry's the dogs out very quickly when in from a day working ... i have tried every type of bedding there is and this stuff is by far the best .... if it is good enough for a priceless derby winning dog its good enough for mine ............

You should be able to get it from an equestrian shop but personally I found it seemed to get everywhere and as someone else has already mentioned once it's wet then forget it.
I use chopped straw also from an equestrian shop and find it much better and it only costs around the same at £6ish a bale, thst lasts forever.

use shreaded (grease proof)/wax paper tried the rest normal paper turns to mush when the dogs are wet. shreaded jay clothes get everywhere and block everything up. a 12 kilo bail will cost you about 8 quid. good stuff give it a try.

i would not use it when it gets cold the paper draws the damp in and it stays damp and cold for the dogs i dont evan use it in the ferret kit.

you try and feel it at night mate when its cold you can feel how damp it is and we all think wow this is good for them when we are just adding problems to there health
