Need help understanding my Pitbulls behavior

I have a 1 year old Razor edge blue nose male pitbull. He has been an amazing dog thus far, has very few negative behaviors. He never chewed up the furniture, or had a lot of accidents in the house. After approximately four months of someone being home with him all day, he is now being left alone for about 4 hours in the morning, as everyone has gone back to work. He has recently started chewing up the soles of shoes and cardboard boxes. When someone comes home he is clearly upset and knows that he has done wrong. He seems to be very apologetic. I believe that he may be frustrated that he is now being left alone and would like some advice on what solutions (besides putting him back into a crate) that we can use to help him become less frustrated when he is home alone.

any answers would be greatly appreciated.

Crate him and up his exercise. Don't know why you're against crates, but it's for your dog's own protection as well as your property. Chewing up objects can lead to serious health issues.

Also, Razor's Edge is an American Bully line, so your dog is not a Pit Bull. Just so you know.

Sounds like he needs more exercise (physical and mental), and to be contained (kennel etc.) while you are gone.

Yes. Crating is only bad if it's all day long. If it's balanced out by lots of exercise, it's not wrong.
Better to be a sometimes-crated dog that get's exercised, than an uncrated dog who's stuck in the house (or fenced yard, or even worse, on a chain) all day.

Good advice above. I just want to add that dogs react towards our emotion. We come in see a chewed up shoe or something and get annoyed and the dog is like crap they are annoyed and people feel they are having regrets. Nope they won't remember and will chew the shoe again if you leave them out.

If you do not want to crate then put them in a room with nothing they can choke on. The fear is a blockage more than having to buy more shoes. Removing a blockage is way more expensive than buying a new paid of shoes (well usually, if you rock thousand dollar shoes probably not lol)
