Some dogs really like eating things. I'd investigate pica, but this is often just a dog thing.

1. Don't leave things where she can get them. Everything gets put away, every time. It's been over a decade since I last had a determined chewer, and my shoes still go in the closet the instant I take them off.

2. Don't leave her where she can get things. If you can't supervise, she goes in the crate, the expen, or a dog-proofed room. Every time.

3. Get her edible toys/chews. Antlers, bully sticks, Himalayan chews, hooves, raw meaty bones. (No rawhide or cooked bones.)

My determined chewer ate the rubber baseboards in the kitchen. He ate the dining room chairs. He chewed the front feet on the couch off, so when my husband sat down, he flew forward, smashed his head into the coffee table and got a concussion.

He needed surgery twice, once for eating an entire teddy bear whole.

I have felt your pain, trust me. I got better at preventing him from doing it and then he eventually aged out of wanting to.
