Covering Electrical Wiring from Chewing Pup

We just got a new puppy - born 9/28/09. Loves to chew, of course. My wife's afraid he'll chew through an extension cord or other such wire. Anyone ever try to prevent this in a room or house with a lot of wires - such as a room with a computer?

My first thought is some type of larger, non-chewable conduit for a 2 pound puppy. Thought I'd ask first before researching on my own.

Thanks!

Someone from the rabbit section, or at least...frequents it often, not sure who it was, suggested to carve a line down the side of cheap PVC piping, and slip cords into there. Puppy proof! At least for maybe a couple of months, lol...

Yeah PVC piping is the good out there, but keeping those cords out of their reach is still advisable.

best thing is watch your puppy 100% of the time it is out, crate it when it can't be watched.

Bitter apple sprays can be a good method for what may be exposed. They learned quickly that those things arr mouthfuls of yuck.

But some dogs strangely like the taste of bitter apple. My sister tried to use it and her pup kept trying to lick it off everything.

first you should see if your puppy would even chew on the wires, ive never even thought of them chewing on them fun. i mostly get scared when there chewing something near wires incase they bite it by accident, or they pull it out. i think maybe you can devise a way to hide the wires maybe tucking them in somewhere or putting them in a box? also theres a no bite spray thats made out different kind of peppers you can buy at the pet store, and instead of putting it on the wires maybe test it out on a cloth first to see if your dog hates it or not, cause i wouldnt want to clean pepper spray off wires for no reason

You can get with plastic stuff (I think IKEA has it) which has a slit all the way around it, and you just slip the wires in.
