You took him to the park with it as well?

my dog had free roam of the house from 4 months old untill
he was 8 months old. then at 8 months he decided to eat the
house and everything in it. he was crated from 8 month untill
yesterday. he's 6 yrs old now. i had a special crate built.
he wore it like armour. it was fitted around his legs so he
could walk, lay down and eat with it own. people asked me "why
do you walk your dog with a crate around him". a few people at
the dog park ordered them.

so when i was done i picked it up and realized that it looks too short, and yep, he bit it in half. so back to sowing the 2 pieces together)))))

Thanks for posting what had to be a rough homecoming. Sometimes pulling out the camera is all you can do to keep from getting too upset. I have an 8 month old as well and remember when he was only about 3 months old when he chewed my back door as I was mowing the lawn (thought he was just sitting and looking at me!) as others mentioned crates and gates might be the answer for a while.

I should have said crated, because that's what we did. Dogs are 7 and 4 now, so we just use it occasionally. Always indoors.
I have a custom crates stainless side entry for my car, and a 300 series (plastic with swinging metal door for the house. My male doesn't mind the crate at all, in fact sometimes when I'm gone my wife says he goes in it to nap.

Thank you for all suggestion! I still haven't get an idea about how to tell him couch is a no no though... thought about lure him into chewing it and this time tell him no when he is about to do it... but it seems like a risky game
What we have been doing since the incident was to keep our normal schedule and to never leave him home that long full of energy like that again. But as far as the normal weekdays go... I'm gonna give him another chance before I crate him. I couldn't make myself put him in the crate 8 hours long.... I could get a pet sitter to come over in the mid day but all I can find is more than $25 a day plus gas to come to my house which is not feasible. As I mentioned I watched him through the camera in the pass 5 months and he never get destructive. He usually sleeps during the day and get all worked up when we get home around 5.15 pm cos he knows it is play time. By the time our dinner he is a tired puppy. The incident of him destroying my couch that game night was solely my fault. He is a good boy.. but sometime it feels like i'm living with a terrorist

I had to snicker, too.
Looks as if he has earned crate time when he can't be supervised.
