Try keeping all your shoes and other things picked up off the floor that you don't want chewed (if possible.) There are products on the market that work for some dogs that's a taste deterrent, you can spray on furniture (make sure it won't stain, first.) To get your pup to chew on his toys, try rubbing peanut butter on them and playing with him using the toys. You can try teaching fetch to make them more interesting, and also get Kongs and other toys you can stuff treats in to make them fun! Good luck!!

Is the dog left loose when alone or unsupervised? Puppies are guaranteed to get into LOADS of trouble when they're not confined and let to roam the house unsupervised.

Yeah, crate training it always a good idea...(but when left alone for long periods, there should be a small area set up and gated with the crate left open for the pup. A bathroom or utility room is great for this.)

maybe you can tether him to you so that you can keep an eye on him whenever he is out of the crate

My Pippa (3mo white boxer puppy) is doing exactly the same thing. So far i've replaced 3 remote controls, my slippers and a few other bits and pieces.

Now i've found a way around it. EVERYTHING is out of reach. anything that she does find that she shouldn't have, i take it off her and give her one of her toys. she's getting the idea. Also, to make his toys a little more enticing, get the toy and rub it in your armpit for a bit (i know it sounds gross, but it will get your scent on it and this seems to fascinate puppies). Also, when you play with your baby, play with him with HIS toys, not household items.
They do get the idea eventually! lol

good luck !

You're not nuts! When Zirc was little he used to sleep on the dirty clothes I would leave on the floor ain front of my chest of drawers after undressing.

Remember, dogs do not comprehend the concept of something being "gross".
