Cooper (my 10 month cavie) is a super chewer. He has to have super duty Kong and Nylabone. He will eat the regular ones.
The problem is that he loves fabric toys. I can't give them to him because he destuffs them and then eats them. He tears off pieces and swallows them. He also has a blanket that he drags around the house like Linus from Charlie Brown. He even pulls it up on the couch with him and drags it in and out of the dog door. He has recently begun to eat this. I am going to have to take it away from him I think.
He is not that interested in hard chew toys. When he is, he immediately "buries" them by placing them on a pillow or in my purse. He never really chews on them, just saves them for later.
The only way I can distract him from dangerous chewing is to give him a large chewy dog treat (like chicken jerky) and let him gnaw on that awhile.
Otherwise, he likes to play ball. But he still loves the chewing.
I am afraid he is going to get a blockage. It is a wonder he hasn't. I find all kinds of things that have passed through his digestive track in the backyard.
I really don't want to take his blanket.
Any hints on training him not to eat his blanket?
