So I got Tesla in mid May - she's 7 1/2 months old now- and expected her to pretty much chew up everything from the start…but that wasn't the case. The whole summer she was pretty much fine, with an occasional mistake here or there. Now that school has started again, she's going after everything... pillows, towels, tissue boxes, papers, storage boxes, and especially shoes. I feel like its related to me being gone now more than she is used to, but I have lots of toys of her own for her to play with. I kennel her at night and by the end of summer had been letting her stay out in the living room if I were only going to be gone an hour or two and things were fine. Now she goes after everything that isn't hers and not much of what is hers. Has anyone else had problems with this before? I'm back to kenneling her during the day while I'm gone which upsets me because I want her to have room to run about. But I want to be able to fix this habit and don't know the best approach to it. Any advice?
