Rolen never really chewed anything in the house, I guess we caught him when he tried and redirected him to a chew toy. Now the wooden fence outside (that's a different story), we are currently working on redirecting him to chew toys outside when he is caught munching on the fence. As far as toys that he likes to chew on...he has a chew rope (absolutely loves it), a chew tire (likes that as well), a nylabone, and he loves tennis balls. When he was a little puppy he had a soft cuddly that stayed in the crate with him. Now he just likes to rip the stuffing out on most of the stuffed toys! I agree with the other posts, the crate is a great training tool. Rolen is 8 months and has just recently been left gated to the kitchen while we're gone. So far he is doing great!
He still sleeps in the crate at night. Rolen is our first puppy and boxer and we love him so much!
