Terry, that is some pretty impressive beavering!

Nomrbddgs, there's not a particular place just pretty much every door frame or facing in the hallway and his bed.

He adores dried pig ears and big marrow bones but won't touch them if he's been left them, he'll only eat when you get home.

:D:D:D i like the AKA name.
Kwame's AKA is Goose because he sounds like one when he whinges.
I'd love to see some pics of Marley

Marley's also know as The Ginger Whinger, he can be rather pathetic!

There's a Facebook album here http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=109469&id=653210271&l=0da206969f

Hi Schouiffy, up in the far north here ๐Ÿ™‚

Kipawa, we tried crating but he got far too distressed with it that I wouldn't want to leave him unsupervised as he's end up doing himself a mischief.

Thanks for all your replies. We have thought about a companion but aren't in the position to do that just now unfortunately.

Where could I get bitter apple spray from, might give that a shot. Currently take to putting scrap bits of wood in for him to beaver on. Probably not the best thing to do but not as much munching on the house when it's there instead!

Hi all, not a regular poster but thought you'd be the best to ask.

Our Basenji is 2 years old and goes through phases of chewing the skirting boards and doorframes when we're out. Sometimes it can be weeks without happening and times (like today) you come home and can fill a dustpan with his 'beaverings'.

Any suggestions as to what we could do to stop this?

Marley-mutt adores dried pigs ears but they don't last very long!

Ah, thank you Kananga ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, I spoke too soon. The DAP spray seemed to work for a week and now we're back to square one and sanity is starting to suffer ๐Ÿ˜ž

Hmmm, I wonder if can get something similar in UK? I am willing to try anythingโ€ฆ

We had Ushe and Neish the cats before we got Marley-mutt. He chases them in the house and pins them down and it can be a nightmare. So much so the cats live mostly outside now!

However, take Marley-mutt for a walk down the road and both the cats will come for a walk and he won't give two hoots about them!

They can also eat his food and sleep in his bed at night and Marley just looks at them!

Marley-mutt never seems to sing along to anything ๐Ÿ˜ž

He does the whole head twitch listening thing when the Countdown clock is on but never a peep!

Well done brother!

Noodle, he does have a large filled knee bone which he chews on but only seems to do it when he has a notion. Doesn't seem to be his most favourite thing IYSWIM?

Wizard, we've had the crate for about 2 weeks and it's been open for him to wander in and out of and use for his bed. He has his favourite bit of vetbed as well as his cuddly toys that he likes.

I'll have a look at x-pens and this dvd you suggest, thank you.

We're trying to crate train Marley and I've looked at the link that said about feeding them in the crate then giving them lots of positive reinforcement with treats.

We've started feeding him in it and he's happy enough with that but soon as you close the door, he wants out and gets quite worked up. He can't even be distracted with treats and soothing tones etc.

Does anyone have any other hints and tips we can use to get him trained?

No hummingbirds here (bit cold and too far north!) but he does have a thing for pouncing on spiders and trying to catch bluebottles and bumble bees!

Aw, little Dora's growing up!

Yep, dead leaves, seaweed, bits of fluff, bunniesโ€ฆ.. lol.

He also does a meerkat pose if the grass is too long for him to see over. He'll stand stock still on his back legs just looking into the fields ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
