    Set out the Oreck vac to empty the bag... in 45 secs time he chewed the zipper off the thing.

    Ran the hired hand home, 15 mins I was gone... chewed up 2 $30 a piece bungee leashes in 5 or 6 pieces, took a bag of cookies off the counter and ate them all, chewed the cord off a box fan, made a big mess in the cat's shitbox, gutted my other dogs stuffed animal, nabbed some Briggs parts for a snowblower off another counter and chewed them up, oh, and left me a lovely present in the back room of the shop.

    Seriously.... 15 mins.

    I'm about at my wits end. It's starting to get $$ and like I need more stuff to fix or cleanup?! What am I doing wrong?!

    Sounds like a visit to the animal rescue centre for advice Is he/she a pup/young dog ?sounds like a case of insecurity /boredom ? If you can take him/her with you if possible sounds like being left brings on panic attacks & chewing /destroying is the relief

    Dog is on a leash right with you or in his kennel until he calms down. Might take a while, we have done it with all our new dogs. PITA for sure but needs to be done for his own safety and your sanity.

    Oh you haven't spent no money yet, be happy your dog is not scared of thunder. I won't even go into what one I used to have destroyed in storms. you wouldn't believe me anyway. I still am amazed on how strong he was. My current dog chewed up stuff till she was 3 years old. Puppies are gonna chew.

    The dog needs a locked crate while you are gone.

    Think I saw this post on pirate? Exercise helps our 2 pups, usually let them out in fenced yard. They run for hours & wear themselves out.

    We have a 6 1/2 month old German shepherd pup. He can be a pain at times. Spend time training it and try to tire him/her out.i swore I wouldn’t get another dog,but I’m damned glad I got him.

    After my last cutting buddy left was not anxious for another, but my grand daughter found Sandy so it is hard to say no. After a year and a half and plenty of angry moments we have started to settle in. Every day play time and walk time. Between my helper and myself we keep her toys well worn and now has lost interest in being destructive. She is a perfect watch dog never worry about coyotes, bears, cougars, and people as she lets me know five minutes before they arrive. She never leaves for any reason in that she is no farther than a hundred feet or so. On the bad side she wants to play at least six hours a day. She finds balls or what left of a ball and insists that it be thrown a hundred times a day. She easily eats as much as my previous Golden Retriever did as a puppy. Thanks

    I found a dog I kept with me most of the day responded better & was a better buddy than if put into a crate /shut in house by them self most insecure dogs revert to the pack syndrome & most want a leader just to be around some one who talks to them pats/strokes them means an awful lot My grandfather was a Shepard & went out with his dog to look for & hopefully bring a goodly #of his sheep from the hills down to the farm in the VERY bad 1947 winter he never returned but some 3weeks later the searchers found his body with his dog huddled up beside him she never got over it & gave up on life it appeared & passed some 2 months later broke my heart I loved that dog "Brunnie "you are still remembered all this time on .

    Yeah. He runs laps around the yard faster than I could do it on a 4 wheeler.

    My lab spends most of from after evening meal till my bed time like the piccie inverted on the settee sleeping then when I go to bed it's choice time Fur rug in dog basket on landing,or first off on the bed later under the duvet on the bed not a big problem apart from the snoring & occasional twitchy dreams

    Neighbor friends have two. We call the da boys. Big sweeties. She usually takes them or they take her couple long walks every day (matching coats). She has lost 30 pounds. Beautiful dogs but definitely high energy
