I'm wondering if anyone else is having issues with their dog destroying stuff. We're not having so much of a problem with him trashing the house, but he'll tear the bedding in his crate into little pieces. Leave a towel out? He'll gnaw on that and tear it apart. Gunnar's also partial to small rugs. Seems to like to gnaw on them and pull the yarn out. We've removed most of those rugs from the house. Spraying stuff with the bitter apple deterrent hasn't had much impact.
Playing catch with a plastic Frisbee is similarly frustrating. Gunnar isn't at all good about dropping an object. He finds more sport in gnawing on it, literally tearing it into tiny pieces of plastic, which if digested, I'm assuming would not be good. Tennis balls are objects to be similarly torn apart. He hasn't punctured one yet, but he's good at stripping the green fuzz from the ball. We're told by friends that this is normal puppy stuff and that he'll grow out of it. Sigh!
