Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

You can try using bitter apple spray on the carpet and see if that works. Do you have toys/chews for her you can distract her with. Pups chew a lot, so making sure she has her own stash of toys is important. Also you want to make sure she's not bored, do some training or play with her in the house since she can't go on long walks/runs at this point.

They sell it pretty much anywhere, pet supply stores, target, walmart. It's called grannick's bitter apple spray, but there are other "knock off brands"

You can get bitter apple at pretty much any pet store. I had to pick some up for the first time a couple weeks ago. Dizzy started a 'project' of ripping the rubber off of the bottom of his rug. I sprayed it all along the edges he was chewing and it worked like a charm. I've heard some dogs actually don't mind it though so you might want to test it out before you spray it all over everything.
