Our mini is 7 months and is exhibiting chewing on everything for the first time. She has plenty of chew toys and we leave special toys for when she is alone; but lately she has gotten distructive chewing up 2 pillows and shredding the newspaper. We are gone for about 8 hours a day and she does not do this when we are home. Any suggestions for some training tips or destraction toys to leave?
put her in an x-pen or crate. Do not allow her the run of the house if you are not around to watch her. this is very normal for a Mini Aussie puppy. Most Aussies will chew well into adulthood, and most of their lives. Rawhide(USA made is all I use), and deer antlers make the most wonderful chewies for them.
