    That is pretty hardcore, Lexie!

    My 10mo is not anywhere near as bad. I do never leave her alone with shoes though! If I do find her chewing something she is not supposed to, I just take it off her without making a fuss and immediately give her something she is allowed to chew on, like a rawhide bone, and then praise her abundantly if she starts chewing on that. We also have a variety of edible dog chews littered all throught he house.

    Adolescent dogs just need to do LOTS of chewing for their developing teeth. Not sure what to suggest to prevent her chewing bedding and similar. That sounds more like an issue with boredom? Have you tried any other 'enrichment' toys apart from Kongs? There are some pretty nifty toys out there to keep your dog's mind occupied when you're out.

    Any ideas on how to stop her? Spray doesnt work and she will destroy all toys (included heavy duty kongs). I was thinking of getting an AussieDog toy but dont know much about them?

    So far she has destroyed:
    -Two wooden benches
    -A wooden table/chair outdoor setting
    -All of my dogs beds/blankets/toys/collars (inbcluding tags) etc
    -Any wooden statues
    -A large amount of shoes
    -To be honest anything thats left within a metre of the ground..

    And she has just started gnawing on the wooden flooring.. sigh


    i know you said spray doesnt work, but have you tried bitter bite, it works great with stopping koda chew things. i noticed he was chewing the legs and corners of my wooden ferret cage once. i put quite a large dose of bitter bite on the areas he has chewed and he hasent touched it since
    just so you know what i am talking about

    Haha shes obsessed with food so would probably enjoy hot sauce too much, I'll give bitter bite a try thanks Maddog!
    I assume its boredom but she destroys all toys and as soon as bones are meatless she abandons them so its hard to keep her occupied for long.
    Its just a worry that she chews everything even things such as my rat bottle off its cage and such... so odd!!!!

    Sorry to hear that!

    I had my wallet chewed up and the 50 dollar notes were flying through the backyard (500 dollars' worth)

    I offer/offered cartons and paper for chewing. I now only offer a carton, when it rains lots and they might get bored inside.
    Soft toys.

    And I keep on their backs, till they understand what is allowed and what is not allowed. Tyring work and training. Again and again and again.

    I did spray items (esp shoes) with bitter spray. During their first year with us, they had a (quick) chew on every piece of furniture. There are small marks everywhere. The spray was good.

    I train "leave it". Last month I took all paper and cartons away and say "leave it" everytime Marls attempts to chew on something.
    She now goes "plop" on her bottom to "sit" when I say so.
    But it is not over and done with.
    She is a year old now.

    Persevere! don't let them "win"....
