Probably need to try a steel gate that can't be chewed as a short term solution. Smother the top rail with bitter apple. I have heard some people tried putting Tabasco on the area being chewed but I have not had any personal experience of whether this worked.
Providing a heavy work out just before you leave will ensure the dog goes into rest mode as soon as you leave. Teaching him to retrieve a tennis ball works well.

Thats why bitter apple can be effective. I said can be. I know some dogs actually like it and lick it off anything - rather like a mate of mine who sucks lemons. yeeeeeewww! :-(
