i just got a phone call from my mom she told me diesel has chewed through a pillow from our big chair. it was the cushon pillow. she gave me the you need to figure out a way to get him to stop chewing things up in the house speech...but the thing is, he doesnt chew things up very often. his bone and toys maybe but thats it.

the only one home was my dad and he was typing a paper for this class his job has put him in. so he was in the computer room... went home for lunch and he was fine when i left. until i got the phone call about 10 min later.

i dont know what to do anymore... im not home all the time and usually he is ok outside and i come home for lunch and stuff.

but the waterbottle only works for the moment, he just keeps going back to the object after being squirted over and over. until I have to pretty much drag him away and put him outside for a few to get his attention on something else...

he has bones and plenty of them. plenty of toys but he doesnt care. if i cant control this my mom is going to give him up one day.

btw he is 1 so i know he is still young, but we were doing so well.

ahhhhh!!! help!!!

Duke has had free run of the house since Roscoe passed in May (we didn't want Cassie alone) and Violet since we got her 3 months ago. Yes, some days I'll come home to a pen chewed in the floor or a throw rug munched on, but rarely. And the thing is, if it's a pen or paper, or nail polish bottle, etc., then it's MY fault, not theirs. I know that the only way to 100% protect things is to keep them away from the beagles' reach.

Your Diesel is still young and there will be times he chews what he's not supposed to. It is harder because you live with your parents, but until he is fully mature, they need to take some responsibility, too, and put things out of reach or put Diesel outside when you're not home. Good luck.
