PUP Question !!! Picking up/Chewing Everything !!!
My 12 week old BLF is a pistol !!! very very energetic, but actually very smart, and loves to chase and retrieve !
My biggest problem and I know and realize she's being a typical pup ! But she is absoulutley into everything ! The wifes shoes, the rug, the lamp cords, the couch cushions, the little grls toys, blankets, basically anything she can get in her mouth shes going to carry it, and chew on it !
Now before I get yelled at, I keep a constant eye on her, and if not she's in her crate, But I swear she gets stuff in her mouth before I can even blink an eye ! She's more effective than my wifes vaccum cleaner ! She's found stuff we didn't even know we had ! HAHAHA
I always try my best to get everything put up before she comes in the house to minimize the problems ! I have stayed on her, told her NO, and popped her muzzle ! I have always replaced everything she has picked up with her chew toys, but it has got no better. I don't want to keep on getting on her hard for carrying stuff in her mouth from the fear of discourging her to be mouthy, but shes is absoulutley driving me crazy ! I mean I take one thing from her, and she walks right over and gets something else !
I mean I want a good mouthy hunting dog, BUT she has to have house manners too !!
Any Ideas ?
