Sounds like a plan, seeing as I still have both destroyed remotes I will start out with the lime gel. Thanks for the advice. My wife thinks he just has a little anxiety about us being gone because he is still a puppy. I think the lime gel will help him learn what are good nervous habits and what aren't. I don't think limes will work on my Blue Cattledog, she fetches limes and once a hole develops she eats the insides. He're a pic to help prove she's crazy. You can even see the limes in the background.
