He gets plenty of attention and exercise. Runs in the morning then fetch and playing the our Chessie all evening. This just came on all of a sudden for some reason

Lab puppies, possibly the most destructive thing known to man.

Teach him how to patch and spackle drywall.
That will keep both of you busy for a while.

Agreed!

Our girl Sassy was devious! She'd steal remote controls, the kids MP3 players, all kinds of stuff when you weren't looking and chew it to pieces. She'd even steal stuff off the kitchen counter. After stealing and eating a whole bunch of bananas (peels and all) she got sick as a dog and that pretty much cured that. There were indeed times I thought I'd kill her if she stole and chewed one more thing.

Thank god they grow out of it at some point.

My Husky has done upwards of $10,000 worth of damage... Separation anxiety is a bitch.

Haven't owned a GSD so can't say but our labs have definitely been more destructive than our goldens.

When? The current one is 12, deaf, half blind, and is starting to have hip trouble but he can still steal something off of the table or counter in the blink of an eye. I am not saying they don't, just want to know when? ;?

Put it in a crate while you are away. Problem solved.

LOL looking for a breeder now and this thread is bringing back memories (as if the still-chewed and bloodied door trim 3 ft away from me isn't enough) and making me wonder if I really want to go thru this again!

Years ago mine chewed through and ripped off every wire underneath my boat trailer and ripped out the plastic drain plug. Pretty much anything that wasn't fiberglass or aluminum got torn up.

I'd sink a fleet of those boats to have him back now!

This! ^^^^^^^^^^

The only way to teach a dog to not chew your valued possessions is to not give them the opportunity.
