    Boy can I sympathize with you. Our Casey, who we call Jaws, is a chewer. Window blinds, cords, woodwork, shoes, glasses, you name it. He is finally starting to slow up. In addition to teaching NO, we have redirected him to other chewing things and he has finally gotten the notion that he should only chew his things.

    We used an old sock with a knot tied in it, frozen, for really bad teething. In addition to bully sticks, bully tails, bimple bones, he LOVES chewing on toys from Helping Udders: http://www.helpingudders.com/

    The x-pen is a great idea! And I love your new Lucky avatar. He is so handsome.

    Perhaps putting some of his daily food ration in a treat ball would create a distraction from chewing, for a while and the pen would control the area it's allowed to roll in..
    Good point Barbara, I know there are black kongs that are supposed to be indestructible, and the red ones have always help up with Geordie (my version of "Jaws" - Molly!) But the blue and white puppy kong might not be a good choice!

    I'm not familiar with the chicken rounds - what brand are they, sounds interesting for a treat!

    This is not the brand I get - there are several brands but it will give you a better idea of what they are:

    The brand I get is from another store that doesn't have a website. Lucky LOVES them. They totally saved us on his graduation from Puppy Kindergarten - he came to me in a flash on "Come"!!! The trainer couldn't believe it.

    I buy the chicken rounds at Pet People here in San Diego. They are in a yellow and clear plastic tub and are made by Pet Center Inc. They also have a web site: www.petcenterinc.com. Phone number: (800) 390-0575. The best part is they are made from 100% chicken breast.

    Gus loves a toy called Antlerz... it is actual deer antler that has been shed... so they don't hurt the deer. Gus is still chewing on one I got him about 4 months ago!
