    Will see how it goes. That's the thing Hyacinth, other bedroom doors are always open, and she doesn't bother the beds in those bedrooms whatsoever.

    Hence why i think maybe Grey's has a point.

    Hi DA

    Try everything until you find whatever works is what I reckon.

    I house sat for some cousins, and I slept in the spare room. I couldn't shut the door to the parent's main bedroom, so the cat slept in there on "Mum's" side of the bed. I couldn't stop her.

    And the cat and the dog both peed in my room. All I can think is they weren't pleased to have me there instead of their regular family though they were affectionate enough most of the time. I kept the door to my room firmly shut after that.

    Maybe next time you change your sheets put them on the spare bed for a few days, and if you have a pillow or cushion to sacrifice, put the dirty pillowcases on it? See what happens then.......*disclaimer - I accept no blame for DA's favourite bedding being ripped up*

    Atlas chews anything he can.

    When he is inside he is in the same room as me at all times, when he is outside they only have tramp beds and nothing else, so nothing to kill. He drives me mad, he is 7 this year and nothing has stopped him, so i just work around it!~

    My mums solution with her Great Dane... Hammock beds!

    And even then they only last about a month before she has to buy new hessian slips for them

    Cyrus shreds towels and blankets that are in or around his crate.
    We have he crate right next to our bed and when we go out I always make sure I move the bedding to the side and put my pillow away from the edge.

    He somehow managed to get my pillow and pull half of it through the 1 inch wide bards of the crate.
    There was stuffing everywhere, coated in a nice layer of spite wee.

    OMG and here I was thinking that I was all alone in this house of destruction. Molly is far from stupid and is excellent at commands & walking on her lead, but is still destroying everything she can get her mouth around. I keep the bedroom doors closed, but if I do forget and leave one open its a free for all.
    And how the hell she got to a packet of muffins i had out on the kitchen bench still has me trying to work it out.
    I've bought her new toys and a Kong, she has a really big yard to run in and yet she can still find something to destroy.


    So I'm waiting for a solution also.

    Pei, if insurance DID cover destructadogs then I'd be sooooo happy! Not 5 minutes ago I caught Miss Sally getting stuck into one of the sofa cushions as the throw cover had been scrunched up - what WAS a small rip is now a large one and there's bits of foam everywhere!

    Happy to lend out my lot for any insurance jobs.......
