Get plenty of chew toys!!!! We have a huge bag of raw hides, some reward treats for when we work on training, the dental bones, and dura-bones. For our two critters, we have to make weekly trips to PetSmart to stock up on chewies. Mine like squeeky toys too (those are good for playing fetch in our house). Also, we just found this rubber brush at Bed Bath and Beyond that is wonderful for getting hair off of your clothes and furniture (also good for brushing the dog!) It's $6 there, but after we bought it we found the same one at Walmart for $4 /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif Hrmm, I guess that is all i can really think of. The more toys they have to play with and chew on, the less they bother your stuff.
