    Catch your dog in the act and offer him/her something he/she CAN chew on. It requires some constant vigilance at first but you can train your dog to leave the plugs and trim alone. You can also place furniture in front of the outlets where things are plugged in so the dog can't reach the lamp cords--even if it only temporary while you are working on the training. If your dog is chewing trim-he needs LOTS of other alternatives of his own to chew AND other forms of physical exercise that will keep him more positively occupied and tired out when he does come in the house.

    There are chew toys you can get for dogs, in the meantime, keep the cords out of sight. For the trim, get a spray from a pet store.

    Take your dog for walks to burn off some of the energy.
