MY bf just recently got a dog. its 6months potty trained but sometimes has accidents if he isnt let out.( BUT tears stuff up..anything) Then we already had a cat, & then got 2 more kittens. so all together thats 4 animals!! Then we have a 7month old baby girl & a 3 year old son. It makes me feel like im taking care of all of them the kids & the animals. & i dont even want the dog but, he doesnt wnt to get rid of it... before the animals i felt like cleaning, working, kids, & him was alot to do by myself... he doesnt do alot of housework & works @ home. i need help idk what to do. i want to keep the 2 cats. idk i just feel like i cant keep up with everything else.Answer Question
It is very normal for him to still be chewing at 6 months but your boyfriend needs to step up and do more with the dog. The dog could be chewing out of boredom but also because he has not been taught appropriate chewing. The dog should not be allowed to have full access of the house if he still has accidents and is chewing. The boyfriend needs to take some breaks during the day and take care of the dog as well as work with him. I have 3 dogs and 4 cats and I personally believe that when an animal enters my house they will stay for their lifetime. They do require a lot but I would not get rid of them because of it. I would sit down with the boyfriend and make the pets a family responsibility.
