ericrcan is an unknown quantity at this point
7 month old wont stop chewing....

My 7 month old girl is great. She is stubborn though, but she knows sit, stay, lay, home (kennel), wait, off; basic things like that. She doesnt chew on wood, couches, shoes, anything. The only thing she chews on is cloth type items: blankets, clothes, pillows, sheets etc... Ive tried saying no, and then giving her chew toys. Ive trying yelling, pushing her away from it, all kinds of stuff. Its not only annoying that she is always trying to pull the threads out of things, but its to the point where I cant even put a bed, or anything in her kennel to keep her from making noise with her nails at night because she wants to chew it up. I was leaving a rope in her kennel for a while, but I was told that she can choke so I took that away and now she has 2 toys in there at all times. Any advice on how to help with her chewing? Also, since shes 7 months, is it normal for her to be SUPER CRAZY hyper? When I got her fixed the vet said she was worried because she is the most hyper dog shes seen and was worried she'd rip her stitches out. Shes not too big (45 lbs), but thats big enough when shes jumping around like crazy when people come over lol. Thanks

I've run into this problem aswell with my 5 month pitbull, it was horrible at first but I toned it down a bit by giving her alot of stuff to chew on(variety hard and soft ect) and letting her know what was bad to chew on and what was good to chew on by giving her commands based on what she was doing, like if she nipped on my hand I tell her no in a stern voice so she knows she was doing something wrong then waited a few seconds and threw her a sit command and gave her something appropriate to chew on so she didn't think she was getting rewarded for biting me.

I was actually told by quite a few people to let out a loud pitch OW noise when she did it but I quickly found out that got her more riled and she thought I was playing with her.

hope something in this helps its from experience and all dogs behave differently to certain methods.

These dogs can be puppylike for quite awhile and chewing is a big thing that young dogs do ime, I've had two bad chewers, lost mostly clothes and blankets. You have to keep an eye on them! Don't leave stuff around for opportunity and if they are quiet and out of sight, assume they are getting into trouble. It seems to be something they will grow out of for the most part although some won't. My 3 year old dog still doesn't have a bed in her kennel because she wrecked a ton when I got her last year, I can trust her not to eat my bed or couch if we leave her alone for a short while though. High energy is normal too, long walks, lots of playtime outside and chews they can have.

Goingpostal is on the right track. My boy tends to chew when he's bored. And since u said she has a ton of energy, id be willing to bet that she's just amped up and bored. Find something to burn that energy, long walks, a flirt pole, or maybe even somesort of sport like dock diving or if she listens well rally obedience or agility. She sounds like a good dog just with some quirks. Odin can't have anything with stuffing in his crate, so he gets sheets and thin blankets instead, but the key thing here is a tired dog is a good dog.

Mine is obsessed with socks. He even learned how to open the dryer so he could search for them. He would shred those ropes in seconds. What we did was got an old pair of jeans and tied it in knots got it wet and froze it, it helped a lot. (Might be teething) As far as your crate, if your pup doesn't chew rubber try one of those rubber mats you get in restaurant supply stores for people to stand on and place in the crate.

Make a flirt pole it is very easy and cheap to make, it provides tons of exercise. Also we have a child's cheap battery operated bubble machine and place it in yard and watch him chase the bubbles. My husband was even lazy one day and got his fishing pole and tied his sknizz toy to it and cast it in the yard and reeled it in. You should of seen my boy having a great time chasing after it with little energy used on my husbands part. When it was time to go for a walk my boy looked at me like, "Your crazy if you think I'm moving anywhere." he slept until late morning.

It's a puppy thang.. Crates, Supervised outside time, and nylabones lol. Throw some exercise in there and burn some of the initial energy.
