Supervision will be the key to your success. They make jumbo size Bully Sticks and you just have to remove before it becomes a digestible size.

You can also get jumbo Himalayan Chews which are a hardened cheese product. Pax is a chewer and picked up everything when he was a pup as well. Once the Himalayan Chews become a size that he might ingest, you throw them in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and they become softer to break down when they are chewed. Since they are a food product, they will digest if ingested.

They have been Pax's outlet for chewing. They are not cheap but they are cheaper than the furniture!

Look out for roast beef femur bones, they aren't totally indestructable but the nearest I've ever found.
Don't what it is about kleenex/paper serviettes but all my dogs have gone daft over them.
My worst chewing event was with a floor mop. Had two Cane Corsos, one never chewed but Matt swallowed anything that went in his mouth. One day I couldn't find the vileda type paper string mop head. The handle was there, just no mop. I came to the conclusion I'd thrown it out and so put a new mop head on. Two days later Matt was straining to go to the toilet when very slowly, one slightly chewed, but very intact mop head came out. Sadly Matt's chewing was his downfall, and he died of an obstruction when aged six and a half. Unknown to me he'd got hold of an entire roll of elastic bandage and swallowed it. The vet operated but couldn't save him. He said his digestive tract and stomach were full of loads of bits. He showed me them, there was a big bowl full. Biros,ring pulls,stones,socks, gloves,bits of cable. He'd never shown any signs of being unwell until the last twenty four hours when he started vomiting. He still ate all his food but would be sick a couple of hours later.

A boxer/amstaff/chihuahua/spaniel mix ... I am sorry, I know this is REALLY off topic, but can I please beg a picture of your pup?? I am trying to imagine this mix and getting some pretty interesting ideas!

My shepherd, Shadow, is a habitual rock-eater. If I don't muzzle her out of doors (she doesn't mind er muzzle!) she WILL eat a rock. The vet believes she just has pica, which is frustrating to deal with but not impossible. Your pup may have a similar issue, but hopefully not!
