    lol that is with doors shut. He is getting to a size now he leans in doors and they open from his weight alone. This morning he pushed open the back door and woke me with sloppy kiss lol we are now locking doors just to keep him outside :P he is approx 30 kg and just gone 6 month and still growing really fast, our Vet is estimating he will level out at a healthy 60-70 kg.
    He is a big sook tho and we love him. We can live with a few missing shoes (well nearly all of them) but You couldn't pay us to take the boofer pup. It's just the chewing is getting a tad annoying

    Drag0ncharm.

    rottie owner here, i hear you with using their weight to get through doors.
    Try this trick.
    Turn door handles up wrong way, so that dog has to lift the handle to open, not pull. and change them over regularly.
    Put a piece of metal over bottom of door to prevent scratching.
    Put your head down, and suck it up, till he's a year to settle a 'little'.

    rotties are fullly grown height wise at 2. But from 2 to 3 yrs, is when they bulk up with muscle. At 3, you have a baby monster, gorgeous.

    Pohm has taken 2 dog beds and 3 blankets out to the deck this morning, looks like sun, time for some rottie sunbaking!

    I know what you mean with opening doors just with their weight. My bedroom door is like that - just doesn't lock tight enough so you can push it open without turning the knob. I have a baby gate in the doorway though and if I close that and then close the door, the dog cannot get close enough to the door.

    I put my shoes either on a high shelf in the wardrobe or in a sturdy plastic tub with lockable lid, under the bed. But Banjo is past her worst shoe obsession now. It does pay off to outsmart them!

    Billy Ray is 11 weeks old and he has eaten the back of the chair on
    my husbands $6000 Gym set.
    When my girl was 12 weeks old she ate the leg off of our $2000
    out door setting.
    The husband went to sit down and sit down he did, he came crashing down
    arse over...

    One male I used to have - I called him the renovator ! He used to move furniture and things around - in the house - outside - never bothered him ! Never destroyed anything - except fluffy toys - but that was a given !

    I used to come home from work and all the patio furniture and pot plants were out on the grass !

    I suppose at least he used to help me put things back where I thought they should be - all to be repeated the next day !

    God I loved him !

    wow, Dex is starting to sound really well behaved now, I think I got lucky. Or maybe he's just too small to reach 90% of anything. I can't think of one thing that he's destroyed that was of any importance. I regularly give him toilet rolls and bones and stuffed toys that he's allowed to destroy, he also gets his own sticks and bits of random stuff from the garden like old sprinkler hosing. The most annoying thing I think he had a fetish for was tissues and I quickly stopped that because I got sick of cleaning them up, lol.

    This is such a hilarious thread, Ruby has chewed, ripped, torn a multitude of items, her latest was the door mat on the outside of her dog door ... wish I'd been able to make up a sign for it ... IMG_0781.jpg

    Haha, she really showed that doormat, didn't she?

    I wish I could sometimes film Banjo when she destroys stuff when I'm not home. I imagine her at first just having a little tug at something, then a little nibble and then just going into a "Kill! Kill! Kill!" frenzy until there's nothing left.

    Though these days she often doesn't finish the job, but it's just as bad, except easier to clean up.
    Yesterday I finally threw out the 3 meter inflatable swimming pool that we had only used once. Banjo had chewed off one of the 3 valves. Just one hole about an inch big. But of course it didn't matter, rendered pool completely worthless... She does the same with shoes now. She used to make sure that you could really see the damage. Now she just chews through the strap and that's it. Still not worth getting it fixed - cobblers charge a fortune! Oh or soft toys. Where she used to rip them completely apart, she now just chews their nose and eyes off. I think my daughter finds it harder to deal with finding them that way than when they were in little bits all over the carpet. They look like they've been secretly tortured. lol!

    Haha, I reckon that's exactly how they start ... a bit of a go, then gee this is fun, nom nom nom, then oh crap I'm in so much trouble, may as well finish it off!!
