chewing

Does anyone have a tried and true technique for stopping a retriever from chewing? Specifically, I have a friend with a year old Golden. The dog is a well-mannered family pet, and lives in the house. The problem he is having is outside on the deck. Apparently the dog is dismantling the cedar deck a piece at a time. The animal does not chew on anything else, in the house or outside. If anyone has a remedy I can pass on to my buddy, please let me know.

Thanks!!!!

There are bitter apple spray products on the market that are safe and the taste discourages the dog from chewing on whatever it is used on. That might be worth a try.

You can get a product called Bitter End at most pet stores or lawn and garden nurserys. Watch out for over spray and wear gloves or you won,t be able to lick your fingers for a month. grin.gif Ken

My young dog who sleeps in a kennel in the garage eats sheetrock, I mean just starts scratching and chewing until she's eaten the wall. She quit when I started buying her beef "knuckles" The things are massive and tasty and when she wants to chew she chews that, they also last at least two weeks if not longer. You can get them at pet stores and also at butcher shops.

We were having a problem with shoes. One thing that has worked great for us is rawhides. Give the dog something acceptable to chew on.

Fish gotta swim, bird gotta fly, wife gotta nag, dog gotta chew.

Give the dog something he is allowed to chew on when out on the deck. If caught chewing on the deck, stop the chewing immediately and give him a bone or something he CAN chew on.

Not to sound harsh but if my golden was habitually eating the deck there would be at least one thrashing involved.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
