I need to know why all of a sudden Skitters has started being naughty doing bad things she has not done since she was a puppy that we taught her not to do and nothing has changed at all Skitters has started trying to chew up my shoes again and she chewed up and destroyed a game charger a couple weeks ago Skitters has also been barking at night again and not sleeping could this be a sign that she isn't feeling well and needs to see the vet or is she just mad at me for some reason?

Is Skitters getting enough exersize? Often habits like chewing happen because the pet isn't getting enough physical stymulation. The same thing happened with my dog, I started playing fetch with him in addition to his daily walk, and he stopped by the next week.

It sounds like Skitters is exhibiting symptoms of boredom. Dogs need a stimulating environment and they need activity. Make sure Skitters has something to entertain her and keep her busy when you're not home. And make sure you're providing ample exercise and interactive activity when you're home.
