Any tips on keeping the 6 month old puppy out of every trash can in the house? I know the obvious is to put the cans away or on a shelf, but are there any tricks that work? If someone invented a paper towel or tissue toy (that didn't shred to pieces) I would buy a lot of them. He will also did through a laundry basket full of clothes just to find the fabric softener sheet....

All common for a V. We lock that stuff up and have trained Copper to release them if he does get one. An old towel or sheet with some knots tied in it works. I also have a long distance squirt bottle with water in it that does the job. :eek: He sees that and is now on his best behavior! ;D However, it is what they don't have that they covet. :)

I think I might get a giant roll of paper towels and box of tissues and drop them in the family room. I wonder if I can make him completely bored with paper products?

My pup's favorite game now is to sneak into a bathroom, grab the end of the roll of toilet paper and take off running.

We try to remember to keep the bathroom doors closed, but every once in a while we'll see a rust colored streak run past with a long, long, LONG white tail.

Too funny! Yesterday was my 1st experience finding a complete double roll of paper towels shredded in a million pieces. It look like it had snowed in my room. Pumpkin immediately ran under my bed. Little stinker knew it was a no-no :D I'm still trying to figure out how she got a roll out of the pantry so quickly.

I gave Daltrey a pile of paper towels and let him go nuts...once he was done, I picked up the big pieces and gave them to him again. He got bored. We will see if this works.

KW,

It sounds like we both have our hands full with a couple of mischievous puppies. My boy, Dax, will be 6 months old on 11/18. He is 38 lbs and I'm wondering if he is a little under sized.

How big is Daltry?

Got some wood today and Dalt's attention has been eating wood pieces....which I guess towels and tissues sort of apply.

Daltrey is almost 50 lbs....I think that is a little big at 6 months. He does not look that big, but these V's are pretty solid. His parents were small, but I guess his great grandpa from Australia was large. I would have to believe that 38 lbs is normal. These guys hit growth spurts at different times.

Ever since I gave him a paper towels, he did back off searching them out. He absolutely loves to be chased and anytime he thinks he can get your attention to chase him....GAME ON......lol
