I walk her 3 times a day to wear her down to no avail.
Here's your problem. Walking doesn't cut it with high drive dogs.
Sprinting full speed all over the place is their normal state.
Being inside? It's like putting on your running gear, drinking a case of redbull, then standing in a phone booth.
This is fixed by one way....running...faster than a human. So bicycle runs or ball retrieval in a fenced in area or psycho dog.
Start chew training too.
Chewable flavored toys given, with junk shoes on the floor. Firm no!, turn dog away from shoe, don't move shoe, then chew toy given until it learns
Also don't throw toys everywhere or they can't focus.
Try that and you should be good.
Destructive behavior is boredom with dogs.
What they need, the dog especially is a professional trainer before it's way too late.
Disagree..this is an owner issue. High drive dogs need high energy owners.
The behavior will disappear with sufficient exercise, the chewing is a failure to train the dog on chew toys.
They will eat entire couches like this...double so when pent up.
