I change shoes when I go into the shop to avoid tracking chips and dust up when I am in full on project mode.

My efforts are futile.

This monster makes no effort to avoid tracking sawdust into the house and mocks me for my efforts.

My dog likes to stay with me but has decided the tools in the shop are too noisy for her so she waits outside.

He just wants to be with his buddy.

I was building a small house when I got him, and he spent his early days with me around power tools and air nailers. Nothing much puts him off his game. He would come up behind me and try and bite the wood hammer handle that hung on the back of my belt.

the beagle is only allowed in the shop when im not running any machines,that could be a safety hazard.when she is allowed in she quickly gets into things she shouldn’t or grabs a hunk of wood to chew on,another problem,dont need the vet bill from splintered wood in her gut.

Django lives in the shop when I go to work or have to leave the house. He has chewed wood scraps his whole life, though as he get older he chews less. He still will occasionally grab a prime looking offcut from the floor and take it to his bed and make many smaller pieces. He seems smart enough (in this single capacity alone) not to eat it.

I have been blessed with 6 dogs and no wood chewing beasts. Finally dog number 6 likes to come into the shop due to the shade and cooler. I cannot complain.

Damn, Pottz, yet another thing I need to worry about. Not sure if he is eating it, but like Django, he makes many smaller peices out of bigger pieces. My dog will always lay in the biggest pile of sawdust he can find, which is usually just below the port for the tablesaw. He doesnt mind the shop machines, but the chainsaw, he sees that, and he wont follow me into the forest, really hates that one.

yeah the beagle chews wood whenever she can get a hold of a piece but i dont think she’s actually eating any,that i know of? oh hell i was removing a large bush so i used the chainsaw to cut up the stump,she wanted nothing to do with that thing-lol.

As I said my Corgi stays outside due to the noise but she does sometimes slip in to snatch a scrap piece from the wood burn bin and take it outside to chew on. She seems to know that the “burn bin” is ok as she has never picked up other pieces.

Her one bad habit is attacking gas powered equipment like the leaf blower, chain saw, weed eater or rototiller when I first start them up. I think it is something about me jerking on the pull cord that triggers this behavior but she goes after the action end so I have to be extra careful starting them is she is around.
