    Got to laugh at this one....

    OH built a temporary fence to protect the car. Fencing wire zip tied to all the poles in the carport.

    Mindy is now chewing off all the zip ties!

    hmm, you may need to change to metal ties. Or use fencing wire to tie the mesh onto the poles. Or I was thinking those round clamp things they use to attach hoses to car radiators might be relatively chew proof. Or you're going to need to go round the zip ties and paint them with tastes-yuk like crib stop or vicks vapour rub.

    Here are a few things ive used successfully over the years:

    1.5 L bottles of frozen meat juices in water, pierce it, and hand to your munching monster.The best Kong alternative ive found, ever. Been using these for decades, NEVER had a dog hurt themselves with one as i was warned.

    Stop n Grow: a product for human nail biters, works a treat on dogs. Keeps your wooden chair legs, laptop elec leads safe etc.
    Puppy stop bite, or apple bitter, waste of time/money, my dogs have always ignored this smell and chewed through it.

    Marrow bone whole raw. One per week.

    bundles of old pantyhose, dead socks, tied securely together make a good 'indoor' chew toy.

    anything you can buy from a pet shop is a waste of time/money. Takes my dog seconds to destroy the 'indistructable'.

    (Once bought a kong. Waste of money, filled the $25 large size for my dog, filled it with peanut butter and dog biscuits, lovingly gave the 'prize' to my chewer, he took it, hid it, and it was never seen again to this day, the whole Kong experience took 2 mins. Not a lot of distraction in that toy.)

    2nd hand basket balls, that can be found in charity shops. Take ages to rip to bits.

    A 2nd dog is fantastic! but often impractical.

    or......

    A muzzle ?

    Stop and grow is duly noted, I am really gonna need that one. Thanks so much, Bernie.9 week old Jodi has the pc leads in a cardboard box, a hole one end for me to poke them back in and the other end that comes out to the powerpoint is encased in pvc, lol. I have no idea why but she loved taking her chew toys on top of all the conglomeration of leads to chew them.

    when my border was a pup he chewed the tailgate light wires on dads ute, hehe... not working, destroyed the washing basket, and a car engine.......dont ask how he gets ahold of these things! im with him all the time! .x hes pretty good now ...relief.

    our lil silky maltese is terrible, chewed dads frequent shopper card, mutliple bills, any remote controls left on coffee table.. and still chews shoes .....

    i think its kinda cute ... but i find those rawhide bones do well for them... but even when they have toys galore they still choose to chew our stuff......... cute!

    My border collie x in his younger days was never a chewer. He was fascinated though with mudflaps and ripped them off on cars as they were leaving, gawd knows how, but he never lost a tooth. Cost us a fortune replacing them for people, lol. I just remembered.

    I can think of many things my dogs do that are cute and chewing definately isn't one of them.
