    DefaultHi from Ontario Canada

    Hi folks,
    My husband and I have a 10 month old black lab. My husband is retired and spends a lot of time with Mia and she loves it. This week my husband has been away during the day and Mia has been destroying things in the house. She seems to be more destructive in the morning and I have a mess to clean when I come home for lunch. Mia doesn't seem to be in the destructive mood in the afternoon as when I come home from work everything is ok.
    What can I do to stop this behaviour? It's driving my crazy. Mia is a great dog otherwise. Someone help please.
    Sue

    Welcome to the board from a fellow ontarian.

    crate her. if you are not there to supervise there is aboslutely NOTHING you can do. Either crate her or find a way to keep her in a particular room/area that is safe. destroying stuff isn't just a pain in the butt, they can get hurt (swallowing and chocking on something, breaking a tooth, eating something toxic...).

    Most of us on the board have had to crate our younger labs (mine was crated until he was almost 4 years of age!) for their own safety (and the safety of our stuff and wallets LOL!)

    Welcome! I agree with Tanya about the crate or put in a specific room. Does she get a Kong or bones to chew on? Sometimes they become destructive due to boredness. How much is she exercised before you leave for work? I give bentley and Tank a little walk and a nice run before i leave for school.

    Welcome! Great place you live in by the way, love the island.
    You have to get a crate for her - being on her own and destroying / chewing things can be very harmful to her, or as Tanya said, isolate her in one small area which is safe for her.

    Hello from another Ontarian, and I agree you need to crate her.

    Thanks for all the advice. We are getting a crate for Mia when we are not home. She is a great dog and love her to death. We don't want anything to happen to her.

    Just an update. We now have a crate for Mia when we are out. We give her a kong to pass the time and she is doing fantastic. No more worrying about what Mia has got into. We are happier owners and Mia is a happier dog.
