Perhaps a Jafco?

Yes, supervise the dog. Yes, control the environment to make things inaccessible to the dog. Yes, crate/expen/tether the dog. And yes, muzzle the dog when the above things aren't an option. There is more than one way to manage a situation. And I would much rather see a dog managed in a variety of ways, including a muzzle, than being rushed to an emergency vet because he swallowed a fork.

I think the Jafco recommendation looks like a really good one, so I think you've had really good advice already, but I wanted to ask if you've had a veterinary behaviourist involved? This doesn't sound like normal behaviour to me and I would consider making that investment if you haven't already.

If you have a dog with serious pica, muzzling really is the best/most responsible thing to do. I swear it is. No one can supervise a dog who has a strong desire to swallow non-food items well enough to keep them safe. It's honestly a life or death situation 24/7, that would require the dogs being crated or kept on a traffic lead day in and day out. Someone I know has a rock eater and he ate another rock within days of recovering from surgery from... Yep eating rocks. With her standing jet a few feet from him watching him closey in the back yard. She knew he grab it but couldn't get it off of him fast enough.

As for muzzles, most wire basket muzzles allow dogs to drink and pant. I'm not sure the Baskerville will prevent them from eating stuff entirely, as its designed to allow them to take treats. It's a lot more open in the front than most muzzles. Roust is able to grab a chicken back and carry while wearing his.

I have a friend with a frenchie that eats EVERYTHING. She has a muzzle from here that she says works extremely well for her dog. They can customize based on your dogs measurements.

I haven't used them, this is just based on my friends recommendation.

Kastle wore this for almost a month and while I did remove it for him to eat, he drank and panted etc with it on just fine.

This is where Kastle's came from - I'm very happy with it!
