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.

        So no help here it looks like. How did it end up going? Did you find a fix?. Suk's to be stranded.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
