    When my son stupidly bought a lab that he later rehomed, (no research, 2 young kids at that stage) she chewed the compliance plate off his motor bike. When he went to register again he had to go back home and try and find where he had put it in the garrage. He found it, complete with all the teeth marks.

    She's never been really into her kong. Rope hanging from a pole she loves. As well as Sticks, palm fronds, Coconuts, and her current favourite, rope tied around a stick.

    Just gets bored easy. Likes to get her teeth into something new.

    OH is currently convinced its only his stuff she likes to destroy. I have pointed out that all my stuff is safely inside! She's never inside without supervision.

    I have 2 litre bottles (milk, juice ones) water either frozen or not on a rope for the pups. What size is yours? The staffy owners may have some good ideas for you. I think some buy coconuts with the husks on. With Pretty (blue heeler) we have to keep things up safely too. If hubby forgets and loses a work boot, he will remember next time, won't he. I am sick of reminding him. I have pigs ears etc inside for her for distraction.

    Zifnab, I feel your pain. My Charlie chewed through my laptop cord today while I was using it, it's a miracle he didn't electrocute himself.

    I have two 6 months old puppies.... I pray the chewing stops soon! For now though they have a stack of toys. Their current favourites are Nylabones, teething keys, ropes and 2 toys that have sqeakers and rattles in them.

    Boss chews shoe laces.. like he pulls the laces out of the shoes then chews them. he leaves the shoes alone.

    Plastic bottles are great... boss loves them.. if we forget to take a toy with us when we go away, we recycle a coke bottle..

    Boss also knows how to take the lid of the sauce bottle without knocking it over.. so we gotta be careful that we dont leave the sauce bottle next to the couch.

    She's a 10 month Staffy X. A lot bigger than a Staffy. Currently 60cm tall, 25kg.

    I'll have to start saving milk bottles. Frozen sounds like a good idea, she can get through an empty one in 10mins or so.

    She'll grow out of it soon.... *crosses fingers*
