    Wow what a chewer! Sorry you may have already tried this but have you googled puzzle toys for dogs? There are some interesting ones out there that can keep dogs occupied so that they don't chew other things so much. e.g. treat balls that have treats inside and the dog has roll them around so that treats fall out of the holes and he can eat them. or there's a puzzle slider thing which is like an advent calendar and the dog has to slide little doors across with his paws to get at the treats inside. Cheaper alternative is to buy one of those rubber Kong toys with a hole in the middle, they are pretty much indestructible, you can fill the hole with peanut butter or cream cheese and dog will spend ages trying to lick every little last bit out of the hole. Also a bit of PVC pipe from Bunnings with peanut butter inside will do the same job. Maybe the more time he spends playing with these toys, the less time he will have to chew your things?! I feel your pain, hope someone can provide a solution for you!

    Thanks heaps for all of those suggestions @aquarius. Haven't tried any of those toys but I certainly will be now.. Our girl is starting to copy and chew now too so will be stoking up on a lot of them

    You're welcome @BabyG4 ! Hope they work! Another thing we used to do for our dog was hang a chewy toy from a rope tied to a sturdy beam or tree branch in the back yard, she'd spend ages leaping at the toy and grabbing it in her mouth and pulling on it or batting it around with her paws!
