i do a doggie day care and the dogs thewed through the wire one time. Since then i re-insulated the suction (they chewed that too) and buried the wire under foam tape. I then wrapped the whole thing in metal tape. It causes a chemical reation in their mouth and generates an electric-like zap that discourages the dogs from chewing it. It's been 2 years and still no chewing.
Every customer you take for granted today will be someone else's tomorrow.
