So our wonderful little Jaxon has been earning some trust lately. So, we've started to leave him out of the crate for a few reasons, one being we don't want his left ear to not become erect. So, we've heard, out of the crate = better chance of ear going up.
Doing great for a week or so. Nothing destroyed.
Over the course of the next week, etc:
Expensive recliner chair, cord eaten. (Chair was unplugged of course).
Figures out how to open the bathroom door which is always shut. Tears up the bathroom like it was a tornado happened in the house.
Tore apart a roll of paper towels.
Gets up onto the counters and steals things that aren't his.
Destroys the door jams by chewing.
Destroys a banister railing by chewing.
These are just a few examples.
Here's a video: just for fun!!!
Hopefully this will work.
So, I go home today and find the recliner now chewed up on the fabric part. He knows he did something wrong and follows me to the recliner. He looks at the chair, then at me. I grab him and push his nose into the chair and yell at him. Maybe not the right thing to do, but that's what I did. Called him a bad boy in a low loud tone.
When I left to go back to work I put him back in the crate.
How can he earn his way back out now?
