our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

Chewing...on molding and baseboards!

Hi everyone, we have an almost 7 mo old female Husky. She is in our mud room while we are at work and we come home to let her out at lunch time. The past few weeks she has been chewing/digging at our wooden baseboards and molding around the door, as well as wooden window sills. We have tried spraying the bitter no bite spray on the areas, but she doesn't seem to mind the taste! Any suggestions on how to stop this behavior or another spray to try?

I would crate her while you're away - 7 months is too young for an energetic puppy to be romping around! Besides, how does she know what she is doing wrong if there is no one there to correct her on the chewing?
Being out of her crate should be a privilege. Juneau has free range of the house since she was about a year old, but that's only because she doesn't chew on things that she isn't supposed to.
Exercise and mental stimulation can also wear out your puppy, which will make her less apt to chew on things.
Start crating her while you're away so you don't have to worry about it anymore. Once she is older and more calm, then you can start letting her have free range. It sounds like her teenage phase is kicking in.

My guy's do that when they are bored. I did spray the bitter apple on it and they didn't chew it again, at least until the taste wore off. I correct them as soon as I see it though.
I second the crating! I always crate mine when we aren't home. I tried the whole letting them stay in the kitchen while I'm gone thing and they always ended up destroying something. So, their their protection and my house protection, I crated them.
