Bored bichon frise

Hi all,

I have a male bichon frise who is going to be turning 1 at the end of the month. He is the most loving little guy but the problem my wife and I have with him right now is that he gets bored easy. He loves his "sister" a 9 year old cockapoo but will not leave her alone as he is always nibbling on her. The other problem we have with him (Toby) is that he is a chewer and if we do not keep an eye on him he will chew up the house. I work out of my house and try to keep him with me during the day but he is either chewing on the molding, chewing the rugs, the sofa, anything that he can get to. He has plenty of toys and bones to chew on but gets bored with them fast. I am able to get some work done when he has his "power naps" but in between he is a handful. If I put him in his pen he will bark until I take him out. Any suggestions to this problem would be very much appreciated.

If you cannot keep an eye on him, use an X pen or crate. Give him Kongs filled with good stuff (a little peanut butter, yogurt, a dehydrated food, whatever he eats)....throw them in the freezer so it takes him longer to get the goodies out. Buy some of the dog puzzles. I think it's Kong that makes a treat dispensing toy that you can set to dispense a treat at certain times
