Destructive Chewing Behavior In 10 Month Old Aussie
I'm having a spot of trouble with my Aussie chewing on my apartment. It started just after he was neutered - he ripped up carpet while wearing his cone (after jumping over a 2.5' tall gate). After adding another gate above the other, he started after a door frame, even with bitter spray.
This had been isolated to when I wasn't home, but he's started doing it while I'm in the room. He has numerous toys to chew on, even "puzzle" toys, but he doesn't give it much attention.
Are there better toys to occupy him, or stronger deterrents for the chewing? He's my first Aussie and I'm trying everything I can, but I must be missing something!
Any advice would be fantastic!
