My hounds are still just oversized puppies. You have to dogproof the house. They'll still run off with shoes & whatever else looks or smells interesting.

They always seem to prefer shoes to their own toys. When my dog was a puppy, she chewed a good percentage of my shoes up, in the end I just used to make sure all my best stuff was put behind closed doors and then I would leave all the old stuff lying around so then she would chew on that. They do grow out of it, but you have to tell them off and set the rules so that they know what they can chew on and what they cannot! Good luck, hope he grows out of it soon!!

I got through several puppy stages by simply keeping a good eye on them, with the help of man's best invention: the crate (or kennel as many prefer to call it.) If you don't have one i strongly suggest you get it. Not only will it give you time to yourself but it will save many of your belongings from being destroyed. By the way, dogs eat your shoes and socks and underwear... and basically everything you own, because it smells like you. It offers them comfort and they don't know it's bad unless you tell them. Constantly. Hope I helped!

We actually keep a good on on our dogs when they were little. They use to be so bad that we use to have to put them in a cage when we went out of town for a couple of hours. They use to tear everything to shreds. Our youngest we still have to put n a cage because she hasn't grown out of that stage yet. She is a year and 1/2 old. They say raising kids is tough. Sometimes I think it is harder raising a pup. Maybe more expensive at times. Thanks
