Wow. He sure did a number on those boots. Fortunately, I have never had a dog that chewed anything valuable. Except for one that chewed my husband's credit card. LOL

A dog I raised as a puppy years ago (boxer/black lab) was a chewer. For two months straight he averaged $100 a week in damage. Furniture, shoes, clothes, hats, carpets and rugs, a new umbrella with a nice hole in the middle, you get the picture.

So I got the "idiots guide to dog training" as a Christmas gift, he ate half of that too. I took a picture of the half eaten book on the floor, put the camera on the table, he pulled it off and chewed it to pieces, film and all.

He grew into one hell of a good dog, whom I've mentioned several times on this forum.

Reminds me of the time I left my Coonhound out of the kennel to run loose in the fenced backyard and went to work one day.

He must have been convinced I was in the house and ignoring him. When I came home I found that he had removed the vinyl siding all the way across the back of the house as far up as he could reach (about 4ft.) Siding and insulation all over the back yard!!!

Mind you the house was bran new and I was recently married. The wife had a fit. She didn't stick around long anyway.

The dog, Elvis ended up being my good friend for the next 13 yrs. He recently had health issues and had to be put down. But he was a good dog and is missed every day.

I will give her the benefit of the doubt. I gave Khalisee an antler bone to chew on last night and I assume she got the two mixed up because it was dark right? Not because she loves Mom so much. Mom nom nom Mom We rescued her 2 months ago. I am happy her confidence is finally rising. lol!!!

Had a black lab in the late 70's, that up until she was 2 to 3 years old and still had puppy brains, would chew up strange things in the yard. She more than once chewed off most of the heat sink fins on a LawnBoy lawnmower, once chewed enough through the wire grate of the AC and got most all the heat sink fins of the condenser tube off the compressor, and continually dug up the lawn sprinklers.

Finally she grew out of that phase and become a good pheasant dog.

One of my customers has a long driveway with cast iron lamp posts every 75 feet. I mounted a cast aluminum box and receptacle on each post for xmas lights. That damn dog chewed all 12 receptacles and boxes right off the posts(about 40$ per setup not including my labor). I through bolted each box in two spots with 1/4-20 nuts and bolts ...... the dog has been shocked with 120 volts numerous times and just keeps coming .... I don't mind the work but the wires are getting kinda short to splice!!!!!!!

Any dog behaviorist going to respond ? I heard a mixture of tabasco n vinegar solution applied to the furniture to make it less palitable to chew. No idea if it works.

I don't own any high end Italian leather shoes but if I did, I would hide them very, very high up.
