    Default So....about 6AM this morning I.....

    let my pup out and I hear a bunch of water running/spraying outside. Couldn't quite see what it was but it went off. My drip system comes on at that time and I thought I would go take a look at it after the sun was out.

    I finally went out and took a look assuming maybe the recent landscape work I had done screwed up one of the bubblers. The pipe was pulled out of the ground and the top was chewed off. I walked around the back yard and there were 5 locations like that r

    Seems last night before I let my pup in she totally lost her mind and did all this damage. She paid the price for this a while ago. She has chewed on a few of them since I had her but for the most part has been pretty good about leaving stuff alone.

    Maybe she is pissed at me for leaving her at a kennel when I went to Tahoe for New Years????? maybe because while in heat I didn't let her get her nasty on???? Maybe she just wants to go back to CA....lol

    I hope she doesn't do this shit again........

    If she does....................she will have a major problem

    Good luck.

    If all else fails, hire one of those trainers to come to your home. We did with Hunter. She came 5 times. Best $200 I ever invested.

    I will check with my local kennel as they also provide professional training. My ego wants me to handle this myself though.

    She is a good dog now but I know what you are saying. They need to feel the wrath for a couple of years before it all sinks in. Kind of like a child but it took my son 24 years.......lol

    lol - I have a 7 year old wheaton terrior - when we lived in CA she would eat all of the sprinkler heads in the backyard.. One they had been chewed she would leave them alone until I put a new one in.... I think it was something about the smell/taste of new plastic or something. I finally fixed the problem by installing brass sprinkler heads.

    Took 5 years with my birddog. Now i think he lets the pup do it so he can watch her get a whoopen. Havent caught her in the act yet so its hard to try to break her from digging and chewing up everything possible

    Our 3 yr old pup does not chew anymore except her toys but it took a solid 2 yrs for her to stop chewing EVERYTHING! Our 1 yr old pup chews when we leave her for an extended amount of time.

    puppies chew but they will grow out of it....hopefully.

    a couple full bags of Cow Hoofs seemed to keep our pups busy over the chewing period (2+ years).

    That is usually the ticket. Mostly bored animals chew what they shouldn't. Hiring a trainer is also a great idea. Even with the little ankle biter we have the training has been a hugh help. We also discovered how smart she is.

    Tom get a squirt bottle and put a few ounces of bleach in the bottom and dilute it some with water. Spray the solution on the sprinkler heads and your dog won't touch it. I FINALLY learned this after my first pup did all the same crap and a lot more at my old house.

    Also, I know an awsome trainer that will come to your home here in the So Cal area if you are interested let me know and I will e-mail you his phone number.
