Thank you for this. We have our first male lab he is almost 5 months. The behavior is so different from the female. He eats everything and I mean everything. I do not know where he even finds some of the stuff he chews on. I do not have a kennel for him I thought the bathroom was a better option as its bigger and he can have access to his water dish while I was at work. Think again he chewed through the door. He is obsessed with socks he even pooped a whole one out the other day. I know he will calm down in time. We are working on the begging at the table at supper at the moment (not well may I add as he thinks its ok to lay under the table when you tell him to go lay down) then comes the head popping out from under again. He is such a sweet gentle boy but wow I am amazed everyday at how much trouble he can find in seconds. If anyone has any advice on something he will find entertaining to chew on besides his bone would be greatly appreciated. I do have tons of toys, kongs, balls and he still loves the socks lol.
