I used bitter apple for a few things that Houston was biting - even his pee pad and it worked well. I couldn't understand why or how it was happening but I found out that my husband was letting him out of the xpen and leaving the room. UGH. He was a puppy though. I noticed your guys are 1 and 2 years old.
Do you use the xpen? It really gives them enough room when you are away and keeps them safe (if someone doesn't leave them out without you knowing LOL)
Do you give them something to chew on? Kong or bully sticks are a great idea. I think there are threads out on the forum about them. They work really well.
Also, maybe they are just in need of exercise or more of it. When I don't take Houston for a walk. He turns into a mad man. I can see the difference. I walk/jog with him in the morning and it tires him out while we are away. Then I walk with him later in the evening too. A well exercised dog is a happy dog!!!!!!
Can you have someone check in on them? That also helps because Havs want to be with someone. Maybe they need someone to stop by for just an hour for a walk to break up there day.
Good luck. I know it can be frustrating but hang in there. My old dog was an alpha Cairn Terrier. I really wished I had the xpen with her. It would have saved me a lot of problems.
