A lot of vets will tell you to buy something horrible tasting and put it on the remotes daily, when the remotes aren't being used they need to be in a drawer so she can't get to them. Find one of the nastiest tasting things you can find and put it on remote.

I hope this helps.

Simply put, don't allow her in a situation where she can get ahold of the remote unsupervised.

If she's crate trained, put her in her crate when you leave the house (if this is for a reasonable amount of time.) Otherwise, invest in baby gates and confine her to a kitchen where it's cooler in summer and there are less things for her to get into.

Make sure she's exercised to exhaustion at least once a day and never leave her when she's not had at least a generous walk and play session. Her pent up energy will be spent and she'll likely sleep it off for a while. Also, leave safe toys with her to occupy her time. Stuff she can't pick apart and swallow, maybe a tough black Kong with some peanut butter or wet food deep inside it so she has to work to get it out. That will keep her mouth occupied.

Ultimately, it's your job to provide safe alternatives for her to chew/protect her from the remotes. She's not going to know the difference unless you show her and take the temptation away!

I can think of only 2 options , get in a habit of placing the remote up high on the t.v or a cabinet.
Or you can teach her to Leave it
