Thanks for some input!! I'll look into it! I will try putting the urine paper outside the crate to start. Maybe it will help.

Kong toys you put treats in. I used to put peanut butter in them and freeze it. It takes forever to lick it out and will get out their energy.

There are "slow feeding bowls" which have angles in them. it makes it harder to gulp food and they will burn off energy getting it out.

you can spray the no no items with Bitter Apple, and when he chews on his toys pet him or give him treats. this put a "good" feeling with his toys and a "bad" feeling with your stuff.

You can also squirt him with a water bottle when he is actuallt being naughty...not after. It needs to be immediate for him to associate the chewing with the water.

You can also fill a can with pennies or beans to make noise then throw it in his direction when chewing. after a few times you will only need to shake the can.

potty training.... get a crate and when he pees in the house sop of the urine with a paper towel then put him in the cage. place the urine soaked towel.outside the crate door. Dogs hate laying in their urine. You are supposed to start with 5 minutes, then increase each time it continues. My 5 yr dalmatian drove me nuts and after trying this repeatedly, i put her in the crate, left the urine paper by the gate, and put a blanket over the crate most of the night. She never went in the house again..... but she understood she did it out of spite and would pretend to pee in the yard then pee in the house

when they go outside give them a treat right after they finish and pet them. again... pee outside equals good and urine towel trapped in crate is bad.

Road Dogs

Hello, new to this site. Found it in need of help. My husband is a driver, gone 6days a week. My oldest boy, Patron 11yr old German Shepherd, is no longer able to go on the road. We have a pup now, also GS, and the potty training, chewing of cords, is getting unbearable. While on the road and at home. I have decided to keep him this week, being that it's DOT blitz anyway. But does anyone have advice for us? I will say it is not TERRIBLE. Our great Dane we gave up on, that was terrible. But I think it's the fact of on truck off truck. Plus a big ball of curiously playful energy. Are there training recommendation? Toy recommendation?
