I thought I would post a couple of pics of the destruction one little 6 month old Beagle can do within a few days.

My Tater Tot has always been such a good puppy, but in the last week or so he is going nuts with the chewing and destroying of anything soft and fluffy. lol He has plenty of chew toys, kong filled toys, ropes, etc... and he has 2 other dogs to play with at all times, but despite the fact that I am home with him all day he has successfully gotten into trouble without me realizing it.

He is kennel trained and I thought I was being a good dog owner by allowing him freedom in the house, but I guess unless I am actually playing with him, I may have to keep him in his kennel until he is two. Just kidding. Any suggestions would help though.

One dog bed down....



One living room throw pillow down...



These are the only two I took pictures of but he has actually destroyed 3 dog beds, the throw pillow and some unmentionables that he proceeded to take to the yard so that all the neighbors could see. lol

I know exactly what you're going through. Caesar has destroyed more dog beds then I would like to count. Plus he shares Charlies love of leather sofas :evilgrin: Try using the Bitter Apple spray on things that you don't want him to chew. It does help. Good Luck!

Joe (Murphy & Summer's Dad) is exactly right!
It sound like it's "normal" puppy chewing, you just have to wait it out.

Abby never went for the couch, she use to LOVE our wooden window sills though. Like you, I was home with her all day and she had plenty of things to do. She outgrew chewing things, thankfully!

It's okay that you all have a sense of humor and think this is funny and/or very familiar. I think if you are going to be the owner of puppies you have to keep that sense of humor.

The moon craters in the back yard have started also, but I couldn't be certain who the guilty party was there, but I guess I should probably be able to figure that out easy enough. lol

As for the unmentionables...yes you are correct. I am terrible about getting undressed and leaving the clothes on the floor until the next morning. I guess I will learn won't I?

I am going to pull one of his kong toys and clean it good and then fill it with peanut butter and dog food and then freeze it. I'll see if that entertains him any longer than the normal kong stuff I use. Wish me luck.

I'm sorry, I had to laugh! I've seen very similar scenes on the floor here. It seems that they like pillows! Jersey loves to destuff them. Like Joe said, if you don't want it chewed, don't leave it where Tater Tot can get it! I can't tell you how much stuff I lost before I really started to take that seriously. Don't worry though, they do grow out of it!

Haha... I'm not alone (Thank god).
Chloe has been chewing things aroung the apartment all the time. She does seem to slow down a bit on that front.
I have one "antique" couch, that she likes eating from the botton.... weird!

I think that most of us if not all of us have experienced this form of beagle art before. :eyes:

Speaking of the devil :evilgrin: Charlie just dug up my plant in the yard. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif I hope he didn't kill it, I stuck it back in the soil hope that it will grow back miraculously.
