Default Problem with chewing.

Our 8 month old GSD is a chewer and has destroyed some of my wife's expensive shoes. We have learned to keep everything put up where she can't get to it. She also has a lot of chew toys.

She now chews on the coffee table corner and our area rug. We always rush over to stop her and give her a toy instead. When she starts chewing on the toy we give her good praise.

Our goal is to have her roam free in the house when we are not there and bark if someone is close to the house. But she still chews on stuff and can't do that yet.

I know she is still a puppy but I am wondering if there is more I can do to stop it or should I just keep doing the same thing and wait til she is more mature in hopes of reaching that goal?

Thanks!
