I dont no whats got into Cairo the past few days.Its like shes gone back to being a puppy again.She started chewing the walls and my door frames,just like she did back when she was a pup.We sorted the problem with that bitter tasting spray,and she grew out of it.She hasnt done anything like this for over a year now.Shes going to be 2 soon,and im wondering if dogs go through the terrible 2's stage,like kids do lol.Any idea why she has taken such a big step back? Im going to have to start spraying things again with the bitter spray.Im gutted,as she is such a good girl usually.

Ruby did exactly the same and started her chewing around 2 years again.
To resolve it i used to give her a kong full for when we went out it seemed to do the trick.
Do you think she may be unoccupied so she may be doing it to entertain herself?
Does she do it when you go out or when u r in the house?
If its when you go out it may be separation anxiety. With Ruby it was a trial and error thing to see what worked

She does it when i go out,and last night i went to bed,she started chewing the door frame.Its so wierd becuase ive been going out and leaving her on her own now for over a year,and she knows when i go to bed,as its always been the same routine for her since she was a pup. She does have a kong,so i will start filling it up each time i go out.She seems to start when she knows no one is watching her.I only knew she was up to her chewing last night,because i heard her. oh no

Assuming she is OK the rest of the time and OK in herself I would go with what Alex has suggested and see how you get on.
You may have to resort to the spray again, hopefully only for a short time

How about crating her with her kong when you are not there? When we first got Elsdon he would move things but not chew them so I crated him all the time either me or Glynn were not there. He soon got out of the habit and now is uncrated with Ruby in the living room. I think it's a habit/boredom thing with them?

Oh and naughty Cairo oh no

She does have a crate,i did stop using it because she did prove that she could behave when i went out.She did really well too.I slowly kept leaving her for longer periods in the day,and she was really good.So she gained herself the run of the house when i wasnt there.I think i might have to start retraining her with that as well as the spray and kong banghead

Hi

I think they do go through the terrible two, Georgie is at the moment but my god its hard work trying to sort it out. I do leave her during the day but leave lots of toyas, all doors open (except my bedroom), she has her own bedroom with bed and I leave the radio on for her or the TV.

I do walk her in the morning and do a few training session things too with her before I go to work, on a night I go for a walk, take her to the stables and then home, and stay up until about 10pm before her last pee and then bed. Sometimes I do let her sleep with me sometimes I dont' I do vary it so she has no expectations.

I do flyball with her, now some agility to focus her a bit more and am planning to book swimming session for her, just to keep her brin working and balance her a bit. I think Staffies need to be active and busy, otherwise they can be destructive. I also by the way changed her diet too.

Hope some of this helped

Quick update.Ive stocked up on peanut butter,and have been filling her kong,freezing it and leaving it for her when i go out.And ive sprayed anything she might find remotely interesting to chew,and so far it has worked.Ill keep at it for a while,then ill remove the spray and see how she goes.Ill always leave her a kong now though.Oh,and i leave the tv on for her as well now fingers crossed
