Is it possible to have the outlet moved higher?

@PinkMagnolia:  That was going to be my suggestion!  Good thinking.

Until then, start carrying a flash light, you will always have light and the hubby won’t…..maybe he’ll get the hint.

I love how everyone is suggesting ideas to fix the lights but seriously – your problem is the dog. I love love love dogs. And my own dog was so misbehaved that I know how hard it is. But seriously – you guys have to figure out a way to train the dog. What are you going to do – keep livign your life around the dogs behavior? This might be your hubbys passive aggressive way to show you that the dog needs to be trained.

What about spraying cords or stuff that the dog likes to chew with that “no chew” spray. I forget what it is, but it’s bitter and dogs don’t like it.

You definitely need to do something. eek most dogs only chew for the first year.

Yea I agree, the issue here is the dog not the husband but you can’t fix the dog overnight. 

I like the idea of moving the outlet so its the height of the table so if the lamp is plugged in or not then cord will never dangle down low. 

I don’t think your husband just doesn’t listen (he obviously sees why you are asking him to do this) and its hopefully not becuase hes just lazy (again, because he sees the need) but maybe its just because he honestly forgets? What if you put a sign on the table or a tag on the cord reminding him to put it on the table.

I think better training for the dog would help this situation.  Not just for your sanity, but for the health of the dog.

Can you not block the dog off in a certain part of the house by putting up a baby gate or something? If he only does it while you guys are gone during the day this seems like a good solution. Just pick one room/area that is chew-safe and leave him there with his toys and some water.

Connected story– I worked for the phone company once (when there was only one) and a lady called in and said “my phone never rings, but its ok because whenever someone is calling the dog barks.”  Oracle dog? No- she had tied the dog with the phone cord- which gave an electrical charge each time the phone rang. 

We sent out a repairman…
