If I don’t have something specific to write on like a giveaway or a review, then I’m going to go by a new little weekly theme. Today is WACKY WEDNESDAY.
Ok, we honestly do live in a zoo. This is in no way a part of my new adventure in life, I have always loved animals and ALWAYS had several. Right now, we have 3 inside dogs and 2 outside cats. The dogs are pretty young. Walter is the oldest and he is 3, Louie and Izzy are both under 1 and are both just puppies. The cats though, Stripe is 15 and Patches is 9. Our animals live FOREVER, honestly.
I’ve never had trouble training dogs, ever. I’ve had dogs all my life and I’m 49. I’ve had inside dogs since 1993. These two pups are really testing me and it honestly is driving me WACKY. I can’t lay down puppy pads because Louie who is 4 months old decided after he used the potty on it, he would tear it apart and spread it across the house. I do have him house trained though now. I already had Izzy house trained. So, no more puppy pads.
My main problem is chewing from both of the younger dogs. Izzy is almost, almost a year old and Louie is about 4 months. I have a TON of chew toys around this house, yet they have decided that they want to chew on my furniture while I’m gone. They even want to chew on my furniture if I am working on the computer for an extended amount of time. My furniture was NEW when I moved into this house in 2014. It’s just about broke my heart. Izzy is part pit bull/lab, trust me she has more pit bull. Louie is part lab/part pit bull, the only thing pit bull about Louie is his coloring and that is the truth. All of our animals are rescues. We have volunteer at an animal rescue in the past, I just have a few time restraints right now. Michael is always afraid that I will adopt a pet again and not tell him until after.
I’ve used a spray on the furniture that they suggested for me at Petsmart to deter chewing. It might be helping, I’m not sure yet. Honestly, I’m just a little NUTS today. Walter has been the only good boy. The other 2 are just my trouble makers! Now, I wonder, why do I love animals more than humans, lol! I do though.
Here are a few pictures of my dogs:
Do you have any suggestions on how to stop a dog from chewing furniture. I’m not getting rid of them, sorry!
***Update*** I did get Louie and Izzy’s chewing under control, thankfully. You can read about it all over my instagram page.
