A hungry dog


Dear Benny,

My dog keeps eating my shoes.  What should I do?

Dear Shoeless, 

Dealing with dogs or pets, in general, can sometimes be very frustrating because they don’t understand you.  I’m sure there are some things you can do to stop your dog from eating your shoes. You could put your shoes in a different spot. You could get the dog some chew toys, or you could find a trainer online. I also found out that maybe a certain smell could be coming from shoes that your dog is attracted to.  You could also try keeping your dog outside instead of inside. I remember my dad saying he had the same problem, and he told me if you are financially able, you can have someone build a shoe rack that holds your shoes high off the ground so your dog can no longer reach them. Last but not least, and you probably don’t want to hear this but, you could give your dog up for adoption as a last resort.

Good luck,
