My Australian Red Heeler Cattle Dog eats EVERYTHING
I have a 4 month old "Red Heeler" ACD and a 5 year old "Blue Heeler" ACD< who is perfectly trained, however, that's not the same case with our Red Heeler. She chews on everything, shoes, coats, shoe laces, backpack straps, carpet, her own feces (which I was told was from boredom) toilet paper, normal paper, coffee table legs cables. Even when I catch her in the act she puts whatever she’s eating down, and if I don't pick it up within a few seconds she’s picking it up again. I have to repeatedly tell her to "drop it" and "NO" and tell her "out" so she goes away from it, or she'll pick it up again. I also have to keep her in a cage when I'm not home or she'll eat everything, she ate our ps3 cables last week also, she wines non-stop, it's definitely in the breed because my Blue Heeler does it too, but not nearly as much. I realize it's an attention thing, but I'd like some suggestion or training techniques I can use to maintain it. The breed is a mix of a Dalmatian, Highland Collie, Dingo, and Black and Tan Kelpie, so they could possibly have some behavioral traits to them that have resulted in this. Any tips and information would be great.
