    Default Bored bulldog while at work!!! Help!

    Okay my rocky has been upgraded from staying in his crate while my fiancé and I are away at work....he now stays in kitchen and bathroom which I gate off...

    I'm only gone about 4 hours a day...perks of being a dog walker...

    But I feel bad because rocks is bored all day...I leave him with my other munchkin daisy (Pom/chi) and he always gets into something I have to spend 30 mins before work making sure nothing is left out for him to chew...I'm afraid If I leave him his deer antler or a chew toy that he will swallow it and chock...he doesn't know when to stop...he chews and eats EVERYTHING....

    When he was crated I left him a blanket and bed in with him so he would e comfy n he chewed/ate half of the cover...

    Anyone have any suggestions...safe toys or chews...? I feel bad leaving with now toys or anything to entertain him...:-/

    Cream cheese in an extra large kong!

    I think his destruction is more out of being mad that you are leaving him, bully's tend to be that way. So a big kong should keep him occupied for half the time, the rest of the time he will snooze

    Well..my Jake has been a very bad bully lately. I'm gone about 6 hours. He has been out of the crate since he was 6 months old. We NEVER had an issue. He is now just a year and in the past 3 weeks,he has chewed on the towels I leave to protect my sofa..from him..and he actually swallowed the binding. He threw it up over a period of 2 days..always at 2:30 am! I removed the towels and he chewed up a throw pillow and a hoodie of mine I left lying in a chair! he has lots of toys down...my floor is covered with them,but apparently, that's not what he wants! I walk him every morning before I leave and he isn't alone! He has another dog and 2 cats here! Soooo..he is going back in the crate. I,like you spend so much time picking up things he will "possibly" destroy! I feel your pain! If you figure it out..SHARE! Puleeeeeeeeze!

    I would get him a big Kong or Nylabone or both, to chew on and if he still chews things up he shouldn't then I would crate him. We crate ours when we are at work.

    Omg thank you for all your suggestions...maybe I will try and walk him before I leave for work also...and leave him with a nice Giant bone so he will not choke...makes me nervous tho...

    I think rocky n jake are long lost brothers...that's exactly y I leave him in kitchen and bathroom I'm afraid he will chew/eat sheets I leave on couch and he loves to eat ornaments on my christmas tree...he chewed ornaments that my fiancés grandmother who passed away made....my bf wanted to KILL him....:-/

    When I come home from work sometimes my poor munchkin's hair is all wet because they were play fighting all day.... crazy animals!

    I really don't want to have to put him back in Crate because I can't leave any cushion/bed for him because he will eat/chew....
    He's bananas.....

    I worry about Wally getting bored too. What's exactly is a frozen marrow bone? I've heard of them but don't know what they are exactly. Thanks!

    It is the shin bone from a cow.... I get them at the local Giant food store and have them cut into 3 or 4 inches pieces. They may be called 'soup bones'. These were great when Banks was teething as the cold helped her gums

    Peppers Boredom Buster is a section of hollow cow leg bone about 6 inches long. The marrow is removed and I just pack it with peanut butter, a few mini marshmallows,or busted up milkbones or pieces of dry fruit inbedded in the peanut butter . I make a few up then put them in the freezer til they are froze solid. If I am going to be away for a while I leave her one on my way out. She goes to town on them bones and will lay there licking away for a bit then come back later and have another go at it.
