Chewing

Post by Joxgirl » Sat Oct 28, 2017 2:06 am

Chewing up everything thing!!! Why now? Her puppy teeth fell out. New grew in. So why now? She ATE one of my sandals. My daughter suggests we donate the other shoe. “Well it’s new and there are people with only one foot.” My Work badge. Ya that locked me out of our parking lot too. Could not clock in... no money to buy dog toys with now Rogue. 😷. Mention of toys.... suddenly they all must be killed. 🙄 As I made up my face tonight before work, she started eating a brand new floor mat. As I carried in laundry from garage to kitchen.... short walk, she dug a hole!!! Ok that one counts under hole digging. Not chewing shit up.
Anyone with a chewer, right now? Raise your hand so I don’t feel alone. 😱

:eek: so this is normal???? I’m getting a order of Elk antlers delivered on a regular schedule starting Sunday. She chewed through a toy that was built to last. Any other suggestions are welcome.
I can try to exercise her more. I’m thinking maybe 15 minutes every two to four hours hours on top of 30 minutes to 60 minutes in the morn and evening. * Due to the extreme heat recently we couldn’t go out to play until sunset *

I am afraid so. Radar slowed it down around the age of 3.

Do a search of this site for "Crazy Hour" - 74 hits, and the term comes up as early as 2012.

BTW: So far, they haven't gone completely away and Radar's 5 now.

Making him brain tired is the only way we've found to minimize it. He still has the crazies, but we play searching games and seekit so that I can control the situation, minimize damage and tire him out. The only things that do that are things that make him think and we can make progressively harder and harder so it doesn't lose it's shine.

Until you call steve for help......................... Teach " out' and " leave it" Sadie tore apart everything, I had to watch her every second. Put her back on a leash. and make sure she has toys that work her brain. Work with her. It is normal, remember , these are working dogs who are supposed to be going all day. If you dont give them a job, they will make one.

:wtg:

I'll second that.

And, "Leave It" is a MUST, if you haven't already made this a part of the basic obedience.

We have taught and use leave it and out. She is quick. She is in her pen when we can’t watch her. She has learned how to move her pen around the kitchen to get to what she wants this week. That’s how she got to my sandal and the mat and my badge.
I will give Steve a call this week.
Steve, I will be calling you. :music2:
