|First I want to say Haru you are adorable!!!!! OMD that face is too much!
As far as the chewing, Ginger did something very similar at his age. For her it was licking the side of a wall down to the metal edge. We used bitter apple and over time she did go after it. Then we did the toy and praise with treat to keep her away and to learn the toy was a better reward then the wall.
There were times I had to use a spray bottle with water in it when she was aloof and wouldnt listen or go after a toy. This worked very well, after she got away from the door we gave her the toy, she would grab it, play then I would give a treat. Eventually she stopped.
I hope this helps, good luck and be ready for so much more from the little devil. Ginger really tested my nerves more then once and she still does. But now she is at that age where she is getting better and only wants to be loved and cuddled.
I for one am very happy to get a Shiba, even after all the nightmares ive been thru with her so far. Good luck!
