I have just rescued a Jack Russel Terrier, Grover, who is approximately 1 year old. He LOVES to chew anything leather. I have had him for 2 weeks and he is obsessed with chewing leather (shoes, purses, belts, etc).
I am not sure if I should be giving him raw hides or not. Reasoning: I made various raw hides available for him to chew on so that he would not chew the leather, that he seems to find no matter how hard I hide it. I this correct in the fact that I should be offering him "replacements" for the items he likes to chew?
Also, anyone else have this problem with leather and their dogs?

I would not use raw hide but a toy. Does he show any interest in toys at all? You definitely need to make sure to put everything up out of the dogs reach. Is he doing this when left alone? If so I would suggest crate training.
