Kennel. You should not let him continue to roam the garage if he is going to tear it up. wink.gif

7 months is kinda young to be expected too not chew on stuff!! That is what they do when they get bored!

Put him in a kennel and give him something he can chew on!

Big beef bone or similar!

I'll say it again. Kennel. Its not cruel if you use it appropriatly. Make it his home. My pup is almost 7 months and has only chewed up a magazine. Otherwise he is always given proper toys for chewing and kept in the kennel when I can't supervise him.

At the age your pup in he has to learn the "ground rules" as I call them. This is one, letting him know what he can chew on. Like said above get him some acceptable chewing toys or bone and put him in a kennel. They end up liking it and it makes them feel safe. My pup who is 2 now does not mind being in his but now the only time I have to put him in it is when I go up to the cabin or hunting. I have 2 of them and just leave one in my room with the door open and alot of the time he will go in there by himself to sleep.

Yup, crate him. Giving him the run of the garage may sound like a good idea but it is in his best interest to contain him. Make sure the container is up off the floor of the garage. There are some threads here in regards to housing dogs in garages.

I would suggest using a crate. When my lab was a pup she did not want to go in her crate at first, but now at 1.5 years old she knows that routine. when i start to put my work shoes on she runs to her kennel and lays down no questions asked. when she is tired and i cant find her thats the first place i look and shes in there catching some zzzzz's

If I leave the door of my portable kennel open in my shed, my labs will actually use it to sleep in... They like their kennel, they learned in a hurry that 'kennel up' means we're going to have fun!!

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?

      To help protect Minnesota waters, the Department of Natural Resources is reminding people to properly dispose of prohibited or unwanted aquarium plants and animals. “It’s important for hobbyists, teachers, parents and children to know that they should never release aquarium animals or plants into the wild,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Some of the pets and plants that live in aquariums are prohibited species that can cause serious harm if released into lakes, rivers or ponds.” The DNR recommends teachers check the prohibited invasive species list before choosing classroom aquarium animals. “We also encourage teachers to discuss invasive species with their students,” Wolf said. People with aquarium animals or plants that are prohibited or that they no longer want can dispose of them at two upcoming surrender events sponsored by Minnesota Sea Grant: Habitattitude Surrender and University of Minnesota Duluth PAWS Event Wednesday, April 25, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Kirby Student Lounge, University of Minnesota Duluth, 1120 Kirby Drive, Duluth. Fish, aquatic plants, invertebrates, amphibians and reptiles accepted. www.seagrant.umn.edu/news/2018/04/25 Minnesota Aquarium Society Spring Auction and Surrender Saturday, April 28, 11 a.m. Lutheran Church of the Redemption (gymnasium) 927 East Old Shakopee Road, Bloomington. Fish, aquatic plants and invertebrates accepted. www.aquarium.mn/announcements/events/auction/spring-auction-2018 Some retailers sell plants and animals that are prohibited in Minnesota. One example frequently found in classrooms, the red swamp crayfish, is causing major environmental and economic harm as nearby as Wisconsin. More information about prohibited and regulated species and what to do with them is available at mndnr.gov/invasives/laws. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
