    Somehow it will be funny one day, but not this week!
    It is sooo frustrating and they have no idea how annoying it is, just had a good chew ( that you thoughtfully provided)
    Sympathy from me

    Toffee has decided she likes to chew leads.......She was in my room barking under the bed(cause this is where you go when you want to do something you might get in trouble for ) so i go in there and chase her out to have her return there as soon as she could. This time i decided to get down and see what see what she was barking at, to find that she had chewed through the lead that goes to my lamp, which had live power going to it. The lead was zapping and sparking...........so she was a naughty girl for chewing the lead then a good girl for warning me before the house caught fire..........there is never a dull moment

    How old are they?

    I would hazard a guess that they have hit an adolescent stage and that is why they are being extra naughty at the moment.
    6,7 9, 12, 18 months are the really really bad stages of adolescents.

    Personally I would be putting the foot down a bit, ie: more confinement, make sure the boundaries are clear, don't let them get away with anything. If they are naughty they go in time out.

    Frosty chewed on one of my electric cables - exactly once - never again. i think there can be value in having it plugged in.

    I like to keep my bedroom door shut - which reminds me....

    Sammy gets a rush I think from being deviant. When he was younger, to get his kicks he would eat phone cables and $400 shoes.Today, well he's all about working smarter not harder. He will move one shoe to the center of a room or the lawn outside where it can't possibly be missed - though he is not about to take any chances, he leads me to his crime scenes as soon as I get home. I kick up the same fuss as I did when he ate the shoe (although these days my shoes are unscathed) so he gets to feel like the edgy rebel he's always wanted to be and I get to keep my shoes - win win!

    I would be so scared to type "my dog only chews small time stuff" on a doggie board. Dont you know they read it?

    My heart goes out to you. Sure, some days you can laugh this stuff off, on others, on site, you break down in tears, defeated, and want to give up.

    Id be for whispering "your going to be put to sleep" in their ears. That should do it lol

    We're not sure how old they are as they are both rescues, they're both fully grown and we guess they're somewhere between 1 and 2yrs. I got home from work yesterday and they were so dirty from the mud in the yard so I gave them a bath and had to put them in the garage to dry because my hair dryer is broken. Went down 10 mins later, Meika was asleep and Molly was eating an old work shoe of mine, she definitely got disciplined then and I chained her up in the garage so she couldn't reach anything edible... She was an angel after that I've ordered 2 crates off the Internet so just need to wait for them to arrive!
