Awww, I’m so sorry. Bad dog bad dog bad dog! Is the material different than the dog is used to? I know some dogs really like certain textures to chew on because of they like the feeling on their teeth. 

What shoes are they? Perhaps post them here and we can all search around for them and see if we can find them anywhere? The internet is magical like that.

Just remember that your dog loves you.

Sorry you lost your shoes! Our dog only chews things when we’re away due to seperation anxiety, but it teaches us to put everything away and out of doggy reach. Maybe you can start shutting your closet door so that doesn’t happen again.

We just started not crating our dog when we leave and she will eat our shoes every time.  We have now learned (very quickly) that we need to put our shoes away when we leave.  

She never eats them overnight when we’re home or any other time that we’re home. 

I’ve heard that we should think of the shoe-eating as a compliment.  Like, she loves us so much that she wants to be with us and our shoes really smell like us.  So now I throw her a sock from the wash in the morning that she can worship all day instead. (She does not eat socks). And we put the shoes in the closet.

oh that sucks… my dog did that once or twice when he was a puppy and I yelled at him really loudly and it scared him and since then hes never done it again… we can leave anything on the floor and he’ll either lay on top of it or just ignore it
