Any experience there?

Over the years I've had many dogs including raising registered Black Labs. The only time I ever had a problem was with mice or ?? just 4 or 5 years ago. It had been a log winter. The snow was not unusually deep. In fact we rarely had more than 5 or 6 inches on the ground at one time, BUT we had solid snow cover like that for several months.

The TV started acting up and a trace showed the "TWO" coax cables from the satellite dish had been chewed through at the base of the tower where they made a loop to go into the junction box through the bulkhead connectors for the conduit into the house.

As far as dogs they have a wide range of personalities, just like cats and people. Some dogs will chew on anything and others could care less. Puppies OTOH will chew on most anything.

73 and good luck,
