my dog was sleeping with me the other day, and in the middle of the night she chewed my wall!!!!!!!!!!!!! now my new painted wall has a whole in it!!!!!! uhhhhhhhhhh! but sometimes she is good! my brother hates her!
Just remember its never the dogs fault. We are asking them to the unnormal for them. Could it be your dog is bored? Try to bring a toy(not a messy bone) to bed maybe two. Make sure your dgo has soemthing to do if it cant sleep threw the night.
Dogs are like children... and puppies are like babies! Either way you have to safe guard the house... and that means...what they can possibly chew. Parents of all, children/dogs..get mad at things they do.. but really think of it as a learning experience. Atleast it wasn't a wire ..such as an alarm clock/lamp... 2 things could of happened if it were that.. the animal would have got a shock.. but mainly it could cause a fire..while your sleeping...In other words be thankful it was the wall..(cup is always 1/2 full not 1/2 empty) You might want to keep the dog/puppy in a crate at night to prevent any accidents like this.. that make you made and caused damage...plus prevent any future serious accidents. Then slowly brake the dog into sleeping with you.. as it ages and matures. A chew toy is great..but at night time, unsupervised.. they choose their own chew toys... and ones we might not approve of. Any time your mad... take in 3 deep breaths.. and just give a firm.."NO"..or "BAD", never hit...no matter how mad you get...or you'll make the animal timid or aggresive towards your hands. GOOD LUCK.
Sometimes i get mad at my dogs too but i always remember to stay calm and realize it isn't their fault. They dont know we JUST painted that wall and that it ment a lot. All they know is it was fun/tasty?? LMAO but anyways, never HATE your dogs, so to say, because they didn't know what they did was wrong. A stern no though and maybe some further action is required to make sure they wont do it again!

I've had correspondence with a gentleman who used to be in charge of the air force dog program. He had a dog who used to sleep with his daughter. It ate the bed. NOT chewed on it; IT ATE THE WHOLE BED!! He also told me about a pair of golden retrievers who ate about 10 grand in siding to say nothing of the 184 hole golf course that used to be a yard.
One of the folks who got one of our last litter had one that chewed a hole in sheetrock large enough to walk through.
I also recommend kenneling at night. It becomes the dog's den and safe place, and it gives you some peace of mind. We lost a house to a pet who chewed a cord as someone mentioned previously. It can ALWAYS be worse. Our dobe will go to her kennel when she's done something she knows she shouldn't have. We don't send her, she goes there herself. We notice her missing and go looking for whatever it was she's gotten into.
