Not chew things

I adopted my male as an adult. He doesnt chew on much, but sometimes he get curious about one thing and will destroy it.

An example would be a tv remote. I wouldnt classify it as a big chewing problem, but I want him to be able to roam (with the female) when I'm not home.

Any suggestions of tips

I would crate him for now until he learns the house rules. I've never had a dog with a chewing problem, probably because I made it clear what was their stuff and what wasn't by taking away my things and giving them their acceptable chew toys. I only gave one or two choices at a time so they didn't think everything laying around was fair game

I've had him for a half a year now, and I never see him deliberately put things in his mouth that shouldnt be there. Often, i'll find a couple things chewed up. that is my dilema. I never catch him to correct him becuase its not often.

I'd make sure the 'whatever' he tends to chew aren't available. So if it's shoes they are all in the closed closets. Or the remotes are in a drawer.

He may also be doing it in correlation with boredom. So exercise and fun training CLASSES may be a huge help too.
