It sounds like you are still in the early days, i was keeping a very close eye on Mimi for the first few weeks but i also found that i must have got her just enough toys for her not too want to chew on things, we have had not problems with her chewing any furnature, the only thing is when she is shut in the kitchen if there are clothes in the basket she will take them out but i think thats just because of the smell of us on them as she does not chew on them. The easiest way we got to getting Mimi not to jump up was when she comes up to a child we asked them to stand there with their arms folded and look up, Mimi got bored that she wasnt getting attention so she started to sit infront of people to get fuss. This was quite easy to do because we stuck at it. I have found that cavs do love attention a whole lot more than other dogs my family have had.
Your baby is still your baby no matter what species
