Question by jennabean_dp: what’s the best way to stop my 11 month old bloodhound from chewing up my stuff?
We just got a new bloodhound, he’s 11 months old, and he loves to chew on EVERYTHING. Shoes, deodorant, soap, you name it, he chews on it. How can I get him to stop?

You can expect some chewing in a pup. But please watch the “Dog Whisperer” on the National Geographic channel. I got his book from the library and am amazed at the success I’ve had with his suggestions! The big answer is exercise. Not in the house or yard. Long walks with family members. Make sure that he knows that you are the pack leader by assuming a calm, assertive manner with him. You might crate him at night or when he’s alone in the house.
