I have a 7-month-old German shepherd that won’t stop chewing. I get her things like pigs ears but instead she’d rather chews my girlfriends things, these range from her clothes to 8 pairs of her shoes. It’s getting to the stage where she’s saying the dog has to go.
Now I love the dog to bits and it would break my heart to see her go. I’ve tried closing all the doors, but she’s learnt to open them. We’ve put things in cupboards but she opens them.
She never chews anything when we’re there, only when no one is in the house.
I really need to stop this before my girlfriend demands she goes.
So what do you all suggest? I’ve though of putting her outside all the time we’re not there but even though she has a fur coat I think it’s cruel. I’ve also though of getting a muzzle but I think this is cruel as well. I do tell her off for the things she chews and she knows she’s done wrong as she walks away with her head down and her ears back.
Please help it’s doing my head in.
