So Domino has been a fairly predictable when it comes to us leaving for work and such; she has her food and water in the kitchen and she can run around the living room and play with her toys, lay on her pillow, etc. She has been relatively well behaved since we started giving her the living room as a confined space instead of kenneling her. However, she has recently (about the last two weeks) been getting really bad about chewing on our shoes!
We usually would leave a pair of sandals each (one mine, one my boyfriend's) next to the front door so they would be easily accessible for walking her. I also on occasion leave a pair of work shoes there. Well so far she has destroyed one pair of my sandals and one pair of Matt's, his only pair to be exact. On occasion she'll also take my Dr. Scholl's inserts out and rip out the lining of the bottom of one of my work shoes. Mind you, that I don't mind as much considering the shoes are old and I could stand a new pair anyway; I don't condone it still, but I don't mind it as much as say her chewing up my nice pair of black Volcom sandals.
I don't know of anything that could have provoked this behavior. I do however want to know how to stop it so I'm not having to case my living room for any and everything she might possibly destroy while we're away. Any ideas?
