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.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
