Roscoe, our English Bulldog:

Has a fondness for chewing. I had recently remade the post caps for the end of the bed because the dogs had chewed the corners. I even went so far as to put brass corners on it to protect the wood:

Undeterred, Roscoe thought the metal was even better to chew than the wood:

He’s banished from the bed but to help with his wood gnawing compulsion (and to protect the rest of the woodwork) I turned him a nice bone out of some scrap 2×2 pine. I left the ends square so it won’t roll away from him. I rounded the center and added grooves for him to really get down on.

I thought about smearing a little beef fat on it as a lure but he likes it fine just as is.

Lots of nice little projects. Not too sure about the pine dog chew though. Maybe better to get him a bone at the pet shop. Chewing wood is not good for dogs.
