Persistant Chewer!

I have a 10 month old lab mix. He's a great dog, very well behaved and listens very well. Except for the chewing. When we are not home, we'd love to leave him in our large fenced yard with our other older dog. He is crate trained and does excellent in the house in the crate. When he's left outside, he chews on everything! We've puppy proofed what we can: fencing around the trees, no unattended things, ect. But he's chewing on the porch, dryer vent, ac unit, and the house itself. He has a wide array of acceptable chew toys outside too: ropes, bones, balls, rubber bones. I can't keep him banned to the crate forever (several trips home per day is tiring) and i don't necessarily want to tie him up away from the house inside the fence either. Would any one have some other suggestions?

Have you guys ever considered a kennel run? Have you guys tried to play with your dog to exhaust him before you leave?

My dog used to do the same thing as well. I played with her for 10 to 15 minutes to exhaust my dog before I leave anywhere and then put her in the kennel run when I'm gone.
I noticed that it helped out a lot. Less likely for things to be destroyed and my dog isn't confined to a small area.

My dog chews too! She has made my couch a snack. Following this post because I too need answers! I really don't want to kennel my dog if I don't have to!

I know some friends of mine that uses apple cider vinegar with water to spray on the certain areas that their dogs chew up. It helps keep them away from chewing that spot. You guys can try that and see if it works.

If not, you may need something that can keep your dog entertained for a long time or confining your dog is the best way until they grow out of the chewing phase.
