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.

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      We wait until the snowmobile club stakes the trail before going through the narrows.
