The life goal of a Lab is to chew... your objective is to make sure that he has appropriate objects :)

Check out the Sticky: The Bite Stops Here in the new owner section.

Basically, you have to teach the dog Bite Inhibition - how to control the strength of his bite. The training takes persistence, b/c it can take 3 days before your Lab understands what you're trying to teach him. Then, it can take another week or two before you understand how to communicate to him what is OK to chew and what is not.

Also, it is your responsibility to puppy-proof the house :) All of us who own Labs and mixes have dealt with this, and it does get better with training. After you read the sticky, let us know what happens... and we'll help with the next step:)
