Re: Best GSD Advice
Not sure if this is the place to post this ... I need some help regarding my nine month old GSD who loves to chew. Now, I understand they need to chew etc so I did make "other things available for him chew". However when I got home from work today...
Bear had helped himself to the arm of one of the chairs in the family room. I have a boy come in twice a day to play with the dogs and let them out. When I called the boy today I asked him how everything looked at home (meaning did Bear chew anything of mine). He told me that he (Bear, not the boy), had chewed something in the hallway but couldn't tell what. It turned out that Bear chewed a basket that contained his toys and chew things. But everything else according to the boy was fine.
It seems Bear does most of his chewing (destructive chewing) just before I get home.
I have given him all kinds of things to chew on ... I wonder if he is anxious that I am away?
Anyone else have a chewer and how did you address it with your GSD? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
I am thinking this may just be a bump in the road.
