Re: Chewing/digging

Do you have any items that it is appropriate for her to chew? If not get something and use it to redirect her.

You want to correct the inappropriate chewing and try to direct to something more appropriate for her to show her what is appropriate. She is in a chewing period so you need to make sure to have plenty of acceptable chewing items for her to use.
