Q: How do you break a dog from chewing up shoes, blinds, rugs etc.

My foster/foster failure dog Cammy is about 2 years old and is a Whippit. She has a really bad habit of chewing anything she can get her paws on. I have tried everything I know to do to break her of doing this..so any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Let me clarify something...I didn't say the dog was a failure...I am a foster mom for dogs and I decided to keep this one...hence I am a foster failure. Cammy will get not only shoes, but eat the blinds, carpet anything she can sink her teeth into...so it's not like I can lock up the blinds or the carpet. But thanks for the input.

Supervise! Supervise! Supervise! Make sure your shoes are put away and closet doors are closed. It sounds simple, and it is if you are diligent about it.
