We have a pair of bassets, brother & sister 1 1/2 years old. They are just adorable and all, but are chewers. When can we reasonably expect this to slow down. They seem to love outside vegetation of all kinds (we do watch them closely on this), furniture and whatever they can reach off tables and counters. They especially like to chew on each other, never hurting each other but she is the more aggresive and will chase him all around. I thought basset's were suppose to be laid back. Someone needs to tell her she is not a jack russell.
