| | Have U got a shipping-crate?...
If he were mine, i crate him [in an airline-approved shipping kennel, not a welded-wire 'show' crate] whenever i could not directly supervise him, while asleep, off-premises or on & working, etc - OR - if i was at home, but too busy to keep both eyes on the pup - i'd confine him to a single dog-proofed room, with all the electrical cords encased by METAL conduit, to make it tooth-proof.
plastic tubing won't keep the sharp teeth of a dog from gnawing a cable - but metal conduit to completely enclose the cable, or thick-walled PVC pipe of a sufficiently-large diameter that he can't get it into his mouth, makes the cable inside it impossible to chew.
The newest iteration of "no longer pocket hoses" is made of spiral S/S, & that would be a perfect 'cover' for electric wires - it's flexible, lightweight, & once the hose-hardware is cut off the ends, should be / might be wide-enuf for the plug to fit into & thru the hose. // Obv, measure th internal diameter B4 buying it; don't buy it on my say-so, & then find out the 3-prong plug is too big to fit into the opening!
Using wire-staples WITH A STAND-OFF to prevent punctures to the electrical cords, & running them along walls, then covering the stapled cables with half-circle conduit, & half-hoops screwed into the wall at intervals to secure the conduit to the wall, is another option.
A locking-box to cover the wall receptacles where plugs enter the outlet, is also a good way to ensure the safety of children, pets, & ppl with dementia.
