Help! My Dog Is Chewing Up Everything

by Kathy

Why does my 15 month old Toy Aussie chew up everything? She pulls things off my dresser and eats a whole in it. Especially if it is a iron on material. She ate a hole in my new Christmas shirt for work, she eats holes in my dishtowels, husbands socks, underwear, she pulls towels and sheets out the shelves in my bathroom and scatters them all over. She ate a hole in my sheet and comforter on my bed.

I am at my wits end with her. Last night she pulled my Victoria Secrets bag off the table and ate a hole in the bag chewed the strap in two. I had to throw it away. I just dont know what to do with her.

I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts; my husband also works long hours. She is crated while we are gone because I cant leave her out she will tear up the house. When he gets home he lets her out and she runs with him to feed the cows and horses and stay outside until it is time to get ready for bed.

She is not crated at night or when I am off during the day unless I have to run errands. I got her for my birthday last year and really do love her but I don't know what to do. She has chew toys and does not use them.

I NEED HELP!!! I know she has separation anxiety from me, if we take her with us somewhere and I get out of the truck and my husband is with her she will stand at the window and look at me and scream like someone is killing her until I get back in the truck. How do I fix her???
