My Dog chewed it all!

Last night when I reach home from work, Bern(my dog) came up to me overjoyed and almost hurt me with his paw nails. He's always like that, that's how he express his joy of me returning home. I was surprised but what I saw in my room, trash scattered, rubber slipper chewed into pieces, plastic food container cap chewed, you can see the trace of his teeth, bed cover is dirty, he urinate on one of my pillow and the worst is he even chewed the computer cable connecting from monitor to CPU. This is the first time I ever saw that picture. My sister cannot explain how did my dog did that. They said Bern was left at my room and maybe the dog was so angry being left in the room that no one s opening for him to get out. I can't believe Bern did that again, he's not the type of dog who would chew my things but sadly he did. We have a suspicion that my sister-in-law left him in my room. I could feel that Bern is saying sorry on me but I make a stand to give him a lesson for the nth time. I try to resist his charming face, he licks my hands and lie next to me but I resist. I don't know if I'm going to accept his sorry now cause I am really mad about my computer, I don't have money now to buy for the cable. I love Bern but he should learn his lesson this time.

You should teach the one who kept your dog locked in. No animal likes that and what he did was only because of this. Please do not treat your dog badly. He will not know why you are doing it.

Dogs become wild if they are chained. They should be let free. I am an animal lover and we have had several pets and still have. But we did not chain a single one of them. They all grew up having a mild nature, every single one of them. If you are seeing signs of your dog getting wild you need to look out but he will not change if you hit him. Dealing with animals is an art and if they are handled wrongly you are bound to have wild animals in your household.

Honestly I hit him but not that hard, just a tap of my hand at his butt. I love him but I need him to understand that I have an authority and he should listen to me. Last few days he almost bite my baby niece's hand. I don't know what I will do if that happens, my sister will get furious at him for sure. I just thank God that he didn't reach my niece's hand.

Ok, we love them so much. But we need to act wisely also. You are aware that Bern is so fond of plastics and rubber materials and if possible, keep away such things from his vicinity and take care of your things. Also, if instead of the monitor wire if the dog bite the main (power supply wire) the things might end up in despire. So, we as being the wise people, should behave more carefully whenever there are pets at home especially when they are naughty. It may be fun, but some time it become serious and will distory our valuable things also. After all, they are animals and they don't think the way how we think. Thank-s

He actually do not chew plastic and rubber, if he does, in very rare cases. Mostly, if he left alone in the room, he pee but not chew. He must be so furious that someone left him locked.

Sorry for that, I am also worried that if I get married and moved in other home, I might not bring my dog with me.

Yes, I know if we got such pets at home they will act funny at times when they are in such a mood. Earlier in my home also this was the same situation. We got 2 dogs and their children, 2-3 cats and their children, cow, goat, pigs, rabbit, parrots, and different species of birds and fishes. All were nice time and once I moved to the city, all become memory and now only I have fish at home.

How old is your dog? There is a certain age on dogs that they would love to chew everything. So you have to be careful with your stuff even your slippers cannot be left out. Dogs who were not used to being locked up could result into that also so probably that was really the reason why he started to chew your things. Yesterday, our dog just chewed the unopened, purified water gallon cap that we have here at home. So now he got a 5 gallon water just for him. Oh we still have to put the water in a fridge in a different pitcher too because our dog do not drink water which is not cold. Duh?! Some dogs. We love him so much though!

He's about 3-4 yrs. old now, he just chew solid plastic trash he found at the ground but he never chew any slipper. Bern can drink any water but prefer that I'll be the one to give him water with my water dipper, he don't want other dipper than mine. Your dog is cute, for drinking cold water.

Oh, Laniekins, I am so sorry for what happened to your room! But please, don't be mad at Bern, he is not to blame for what happened. Imagine you were in his place, left alone in a closed room, with nothing to do. He was alone and bored and he only tried to entertain himself. It is you and your family who must take care of the dog so that accidents like this won't happen. He won't learn his lesson if you don't accept his "excuses". In fact I'm sure he doesn't understand why you are so angry with him. Dogs don't understand late punishments (you know that ignoring Bern is a punish to him, don't you?). He doesn't make the connection between your anger and his actions that happened hours ago. Whenever you want a dog to learn something, you must reward/punish the behavior immediately. If the reward/punishment comes later, the dog won't understand anything.

I agree. It wasn't all your dog's fault. I'm sorry he made such a mess of your room though.

I see, my mother always told me that I didn't discipline Bern, he bark at anyone in the house except for me, even if he sees them every single day. He pooped at the table stored outside and uses sometimes. Last night I accept his apology, he lean his body to me while I was seating. He wants my hands to touch him, I can tell he misses me a lot :).

He shouldn't be left alone in a close room or place. I just read about this and want to share it with you. When you go out, leave a toy that he can play with a smell of you.

I can left him at the house when I go to work but when I am at the home, he hates to being left at the room without me. I've never tried giving him a toy with my scent, I don't know if he reacts on it.

Hey, sorry for all that trouble and mess your dog caused you. Similar thing happened to us - My dog was locked outside the house. He wanted to get in, but we decided to let him out for a bit. He then chewed and carried a few shoes away. I'm judging that he was angry. My dad soon found out and shouted at him. He felt guilty after and ran to his dog house in the shed. We don't let the dog inside our rooms. Sometimes he runs nearby, but we tend to make him stay in his boundary in the living room. Have a good day! :)

Thanks for sharing that story, I never imagine my dog would be that angry and ruin my things. Until now, I found a pieces of my slipper that he chewed under my bed. So far he never chew any of my things but he urinate on my bed. I am furious that somebody went to my room and left him but not locked up. He also knows when he did something wrong and he display his sorry by sitting beside me and put his paw in my lap and looking at me as if saying his sorry.

It doesn't matter they do something wrong they are still always so cute, ahahahah, I can't be mad at my pets (I have so many ^_^) more than few minutes, and even so I just don't talk to them, not that I beat them or anything. They are really children, so cute and make our lives so greater!

You're right, even if I hate what he did, there are moments that I want to touch and kiss him as I always do. I want to send a message to him that I don't like what he did. I hope he got it, but he makes me feel he's sorry.

Hi , Lanienkins , I am really sorry to hear about the mess that your dog did but. Making damage is very common for many dogs that are left alone , all of my dogs did mess : my samoyad dog , my dogo argentino , my half vizsla half boxer , they all did it. One way we prevent it is to tie the dog with a leash to the stairs in a cornet of the house after taking him outside to do his needs. Another way is to keep him in someone else's house. Having a dog requires a lot of free time to spend with him , taking him outside , encouraging him to run and play , bite toys and take out some energy.

He just roam around the house, I really do not leash or locked in dog house a dog. I want them to stay at home so I can hug, kiss and play with them all the time. I'd probably buy him a toy or any chewable things for the dog. Thanks for giving me an idea.
