lab eating deck

3 posts in this topic

I have a 3 year old black lab that is eating the wooden railing of my deck.Is this normal for this old of a dog? Is there any way to stop this? Thanks.

I've got a lab that is almost 2 years old and she chews on her cedar kennel anytime she gets bored. I know they make the stuff that you spray on the wood to prevent the chewing (puppies use normally) but I know I don't intend to "paint" the dog house with it and I wouldn't want to have to coat a deck either.

Sorry as I don't have any great suggestions. I did leave my dog's e-collar on a couple of times and went into a bedroom that overlooked the kennel and waited for her to begin to chew and nicked her---seems to have decreased and now the colder weather has her more in the house than chewing on the outside so I don't think it was a cure all.

I bought some of the No Chew spray for my Britt pup. Might as well have called it appetizer spray, didn't even slow him down. I have heard that wiping a little bit of tobasco sauce onto the items you don't want chewed works wonders.

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
