Please, please can someone tell me when the chewing stops?

I have thrown out so many toys it is beyond silly! It doesn't help that my downstairs is the puppy equivalent of 'Pick and mix' but I need to know that the end is coming soon so I can go and get some replacements!

Thank goodness her chewing is only limited to small wooden and plastic toys and not my furniture (also OH's Mules but he has donated them to Daisy now) but it is very frustrating! Yesterday she chewed the handle of a maraca, two rhinos are now missing feet, a ELC pirate and two pencils! I always swap the toy for something of hers to chew but for some reason she prefers the other stuff! :( Whilst I am writing this she is having a stand off with the cat. Don't ya just love 'em! :rolleyes: :D!

My main furniture was left alone. Once Milly tried to chew the dining room table chair legs but a swift no and she never did again.

Monty did chew some wallpaper on a corner in the hall just a small patch luckily and had a penchant for shoes oh yes he did the edges of my rugs in the living room :mad: ( which I had to get rid of) and the corner of my bottom stair carpet :mad:

Milly will still chew the odd thing now ( and she is 2) especially the post or if I was to leave mascara lying around etc.....

The worst thing she chewed was my CD cable and portable radiator cable :eek::eek: luckily not plugged in.

Rocky is mainly just really hard on his toys. A chair leg got some in the early days but overall he is quite good at sticking to his own stuff...but we are not daft enough to leave too much stuff about....don't trust him at all :D x

Cara got the corner of our sideboard - it is now got a bit of masala paste on - that stopped her, the carpet gets a bit of a go & bottom stair. Target number one are my slippers so I can't wait for her to out grow this as I have a new pair in my wardrobe!

Do they actually EVER stop chewing??? Teddy is 19 months and has already this morning demolished my granddaughter's bra that she was laying out to wear, and my daughter's Fitflops are now minus their central toe-post:mad: I think he just nicks them to see if he will get chased, but if you don't notice him he will have a chew and wreck them. Little stinker.

The trick is to give them items they want to chew in preference to the other stuff. So look in the pet shop for toys you can stuff food into. Also have play sessions with the stuff you do want her to play with to make them more interesting. If Molly is too interested in something she should not have I ignore what she has got and have a play with something else for a few minutes - she will then usually wander off with her new treasure.

Unfortunately this does not apply to socks and slippers - these apparently must be stolen at any time they can be!!

Millie still chews, but fortunately doesn't destroy her toys - well except for tennis ball things then it's carnage. :(

As for our things, the most popular are my bras, new slippers (but to be fair they are very fury like her toys). Letters, pens, pencils the list is quite long. But if she gets them it's usually my fault for not picking them up! Fortunately furniture is not on her radar :)

I can't imagine them ever stopping chewing, thought it was a dog thing. Have you tried the hide chews, Millies favourite is the shoe shaped one!

OMG, I hope I can move Gaia from my hands, calfs, ankles and toes onto hide chews before too long, otherwise she may be eating live raw! I've ordered some pizzle sticks to see if that helps, in a way furniture would be a relief :eek:

Well thanks to Poppy's chewing I am now minus a remote control for the television. She was stood on a chair chewing it, I saw her said Poppy, what are you doing, when she promptly dropped it in to a cup of tea that had gone cold, which i'd left on the table next to the chair. The remote is now useless, so have just had a trip to Argos for a replacement.

She does like hide bones, I haven't tried the shoe shaped ones! :)

I was just about to order some pizzle sticks, where did you get them from? :)

I got Betty a pizzle stick last week from the local Pet shop... she LOVES it
but it makes her breath smell and staines her beard....everything is a compromise I suppose. Betty does not really chew too much that she
shouldn't....so far....;)

wispa still loves a good chew but on her own stuff! thank goodness. she only seems to chew paper or the house phone or tv remote when im out and havent moved stuff, so my own fault really. she has a toy tub full of rubbery stuff and raw hide in all shapes and sizes which she rumages through to find what takes her fancy! bless her. its one way to make the kids tidy up move or loose it is the moto in this house!

Sarah I feel for you,amazingly Buddy has not really chewed anything while on holiday I think it's coz he has an older dog to play with and also all the long walks have tired him out.I would say when were at home his stag bar comes in handy ,also I've taught the kids to stop leaving their toys lyeing around rather then teaching Buddy not to chew them.Good luck dx
