How much exercise does the chewing dog get? Chewing is caused by two factors:
Boredom and Anxiety. Remember that just walking or throwing a ball sometimes is not enough. You have to stimulate the brain too.
How is this dog with obedience? If he knows sit/stay you could play the "find it" game. Tell the dog to sit/stay in your lounge or living room and then hide the ball just around the corner in the next room. Then when you come back into the room where your dog is give him the "find it" command. He'll go off looking for the ball. Over time start making it harder for your dog to find the ball. Maybe in a bedroom or kitchen, or even under a bed. This kind of play challenges the brain and prevents the dog from getting bored.

We have our dogs so they will find the ball even if it's in a closet with the door shut and inside of a shoe. Their noses are very sensitive. They can smell way more than you think they can. Labs can be ball obsessed simply because they love playing with them so much!
And to keep your dog in the kennel, use those plastic "zip ties", three on each corner, top middle and bottom of each joint of the kennel. Your dog won't be able to escape that! You do have a wireframe kennel, don't you?

Welcome to blacklabrador.com. We are happy that you are here. What type of service dog was Bacchus?

I am just new to this forum but have been reading here for several days. My name is Amanda.
I live in Northern Ireland by the sea. I am the proud owner of an eight week old lab puppy. Mum is a chocolate lab, dad is a black lab.
We've had the pup about a week and a half now. We are crate training, and watching her like a hawk during the day.
So far so good, our little puppy sits when you tell her to, and lies on her mat on command.
I'm looking forward to posting and learning.

My name is Sherry. I live in SouthEastern Ontario, Canada with two children, a wonderful husband and a newly adopted 3 month old black lab cross pup named Indy. He is our families first, but not last, puppy and I figure since I have raised two children I shouldn't have a problem raising a pup. Boy was I mistaken, it is just like being in the toddler, terrible two stage only canine style! LoL Have enrolled and will begin our training come this Wednesday which I know not onlly will he florish in but so will I as his new pack leader and dog trainer...
Thank you all for reading and hope to get in on all the exciting puppy news as well as ask my own puppy/dog questions
