    Hello and welcome. I am new here too!Chewing is common in puppies and young dogs. Do you have things she is allowed to chew around the house. Kong and Nylabone products are usually string enough to hold up to strong chewers. To get her interested you can hide treats in them or dab a little peanut butter on them. Praise her anytime you see her chewing on her things. Also make sure she is getting enough playtime, tired dogs are good dogs!Next keep things you don't want her to chew away from her. This may mean using baby gates or a crate. If you can't be watching her, have her in a "safe" area. Set her up for success. You can also tether her to yourself (leash) so you know where she is at all times.Lastly teach the "leave it" command. This teaches her certain things are offlimits.Good luck, can't wait to see pictures!

    you can also try several distraction methods to get her attention and get her to let go. Shake coins in a can, or offer something you allow her to chew like the toys @soon2bebullymom suggested.

    There are several toys on the market that allow you to hide treats or kibble in them. Some dogs are very picky on their toys, but if Violet (or Roxy) is a food hound, I really suggest getting a few (the big chain pet stores usually have a variety). These keep them busy (meaning they aren't destroying YOUR stuff), and gives them a mental and physical work out. We have several and rotate them. I usually stuff them with yummy things and freeze them. This makes them last longer and is a real treat on hot days.

    Another good distraction tool is a simple squirt bottle or squirt gun. Usually a quick splash of water gets their attention. Just follow this with something good. You let go of that so you get this (treat, praise, toy etc). If possible catch her BEFORE she actually gets a hold of things, and redirect her onto something appropriate for her.

    glad you found us! Need pics of Roxy! My Jake is 8 1/2 months..he gnaws the heck out of his toys..I have a big pile and he picks different favorites every day..sometimes every hour! I think they like the variety..we have nylabones..3 different sizes..kong toys..assorted rings..his favorite is deer antlers. Tonight when we came home from dinner..my huge living room rug had it's corner flipped back and he had been SUCKING on the pad underneath! Just keep lots of toys available and know soon she will outgrow it!

    Hi and welcome! Yup, distractions as said above is what worked for us. Don't worry, Roxy will grow out of it. But when she does you'll miss her puppy phase so don't forget to enjoy every minute! And take tons of pics!
