My Aussie Is Chewing Up My House, Help Please?
He's an awesome dog. I didn't want to crate him so I put a gate up and gave him a 6x6 spot with nothing but hardwood and walls with his water, food, some chew toys, etc. He started chewing the drywall.
I then started giving him more exercise, training, affection and let him roam the house while I was gone. Every couple of weeks I'll find that he chewed something (pants, plant).
Any tips? He is 1.5 years old. Do you think this will stop with time? I'd hate to crate him while I'm gone, but I think I might have to.
