puppy chewing, house training,barking problem

I have two puppies ones my grandma's and ones mine and no matter what I do they still want to chew on the carpet wooden things and our underwear. I've tried everything my friend has told me to do and still doesn't work. I've tried spanking them but not hard, I've tried vinegar, I've tried positive scolding. They just won't learn not to and they are both smart just stubborn. And my dog barks at every little sound or movement. My dog is a Chihuahua/Dachshund mix that is 8 months old and my grandma's is a Dachshund that is about 4 to 5 months. I don't know if that has anything to do with anything. And they are pretty good at not peeing in the house its just pooping is more of a problem. Oh and none of them are neutered. I need some major tips and help, because we live in an apartment and we can't afford anymore damage to it. So if anyone can help me please do.

<3 my man

Well for one thing, neutering them would calm them down. Also, are they being taken for walks? It sounds like they have a lot of energy to release, and you can't expect that them running around a house, or being taken outside strictly to go to the bathroom is going to be enough. They need focused walks around the neighborhood, several times a day if possible, and that will get rid of their boundless energy, and make them more capable of listening to you.

When our dog was a puppy and would chew on something we didn't want her to, we would tell her "no" to stop her from chewing on stuff she shouldn't, and give her a chew toy which was acceptable. She learned pretty quickly what she could chew on what she couldn't.

I think the best way to keep dogs from chewing on things they shouldn't is always have things that are tastier and more fun for dogs to chew around. Lots of chew toys and toys and exercise and supervision is the way to go.

Barking is part of that breed, and nuetering will help with marking and maybe with barking. When my dog barks because he is alerting me to something i acknowledge that i get what he is telling me, and if he continues i tell him enough.

Doxies are pretty hard to potty train as well, they are a challenging breed in many ways.

I tried to command my pet dog about that, but he still chew the table legs and I'm afraid that one day he might chew the cables. When i say "no" to him while he was chewing, he whines and runaway then after a few minutes, he chews the table legs again.
