• I use babygates to keep the b's out of rooms I don't want them in..re towels, I shut the bathroom door…
    If its a crate towel, I try to get some type of bed that won't cause issues if they chew on it.


  • She chewed on the hanging bath towel which my husband uses. Also on his shirt that was hanging over a chair. We are wondering why, he spends so much time with her. Will get the kong toy tomorrow.

    Mine would do the same….Kristii at age 10yrs ate the back out of one of my shirts that was hanging over a chair.... and she was not a rescue... born and raised here...gggg


  • Both things smelled like your husband. Some dogs are attracted to things that smell like people they love. You both may have to adjust your habits, that will be simpler!

    Mine will grab a damp towel to roll on, but don't chew. My friend Ginny had an elderly basenji that would chew up a towel, or rip the hem from around a tee shirt till she was over 16! (never had an obstruction, thankfully, but had some interesting poops) They had to keep clothes up and towels up high


  • I am starting to get scared… Lana has never chewed on anything, besides my plants in the backyard, nothing inside the house though. I hope she doesn't decide to start chewing later on. (Knock on wood)

    We always keep a bunch of rawhides and toys accessible for the dogs, both inside and outside. Maybe that will help!

    And that is how it happens - they lure you into believing they behave and aren't interested in chewing anything and then BAM, gone is your $275 cashmere sweater. :eek: I'm not bitter. :rolleyes:


  • Mine have never destroyed anything inexpensive! Only the best purse, shoes, or belt. When Topper was new to us (under 2) he chewed the collar of my leather coat. I put it away for years, then realized it was the perfect dog park coat.

    My husband come home one Saturday from a garage sale with an old, scuffed 'designer' leather purse(good quality leather, no cheap dyes). I said "I don't want that" and he replied "I didn't get it for YOU", and looked at Nicky (my chewer). She snatched it from him and spent many months chewing the strap, then the corners, ripping out the lining, there are still 2 large leather pieces somewhere in the toy pile. Best $2 chew toy ever. And she was so proud of "her purse".

    lol - what is the craziest thing you have bought for your dog? A purse. Lol


  • Bitter apple spray works on most pillows and items like that, but as far as clothes go…
    We just pick them up...

    Hahaha… Well I got this dog food/toys/stuff catalog in the mail. They have nail polish for dogs, in about 5000 different colors and shades, and those little glittery stickers that you put over the nail polish. Purse is nothing!
