Even the most well behaved puppy will destroy shoes, clothing, paper, remote controls, telephones, leashes, dog beds, carpeting… anything and everything. More rambunctious pups have been known to obliterate sofas, car seats, Venetian blinds, electrical cords, door frames…you name it, they can eat it or shred it.
