    Default Suggestions for Chew-proof Harness

    So...my boyfriends dog chews EVERYTHING. We've tried everything to get her to not chew things and the only thing that works is buying things she can't destory. (I've posted questions about a chew-proof bed for her before )

    Whenever she's wearing a harness she chews it off herself. I've never seen one made out of anything strong enough to stand up to her before. Any suggestions? The reason she wears a harness unattended is because when she is outdoors we make her wear a tether so she can't reach the fence line (I know they aren't supposed to wear a harness unattended but hers is put on tight and she isn't tethered in a way she could get hung up on anything).

    She's a Malamute/Husky mix...and psychotic!

    That thought had crossed my mind but then I'm thinking....eh...if she chews it up then I'll be reeeally ticked cause leather is expensive lol

    I'm afraid we are going to need some space-age NASA materials!

    Ruggles is the same way, he chews everything he gets his teeth on. We don't leave anything on him or Mack.

    I wish I could leave her off the tether but she has a really high prey drive. If she sees a rabbit or squirrel she will run into the fence...she once put her head through a wall because she got so excited about some rabbits while we were in the garage (she was unharmed though!). She's not the brightest dog that ever lived! I'm a bulldog kinda girl but the boyfriend likes all those big fluffy husky type dogs.
