lol I was so where your are only a few months ago with my lab/bc/aussie mix; and yes they are scary smart
I echo all of the solutions provided for you and will only add one thing. Tabasco sauce. If ever there is a bit of wall you don't mind repainting (and really if your pup is chewing on it, it will need repainting anyway) that squirt some Tabasco sauce on it. Now it's spicy and can cause tummy upset, but it was so worth it to get Tessa to stop gnawing on the walls. I only ever used a tiny bit and got immediate results, it's the only things Tessa hates (she laughed in the face of bitter apple spray, even the good one). Tessa only licked a small drop and then when she'd smell it she would just walk away.
Granted it's a quick solution and 'leave it' is more permanent solution to the problem, but when you just got back from work and a walk and the puppy immediately goes to gnawing on the wall you need something quick before you have a mental break down.
