Area rug - I would have settled for that. My Sting at that age took an interest in the electrical wiring, chewed thru the phone, cable, sprinkler control lines, pulled off the water meter and chewed it to bits, then eyed up the main connection. $700 later - steel covering for all wiring ouside like used in barns. So that would buy a lot of cheap rugs. I would do that, or take up the rug completely. Also give lots of those soft squeaky toys - there are also some big flat ones. Or get a cheap crate pad and use that for him to lie on and chew on. My only concern would be if any of these items would be harmful to him. I would crate him so you can get some work done, but give a chew toy or a kong (he might like the soft kong toys also) and keep the crate if possible in the same room with you. Also tire him out with play or a walk before his crate time and keep it under 2 hours at a time.
