2-you can catch a bottle, to do some holes and to put dog food inside, the dog will pass from within hours trying to remove the grains of the bottle. 
 
3-offer toys to the animal so that he can extravasate the energy. 
 
4-offer bones or something chewable, that avoids that he bites the forbidden objects of the house. 
 
5-hide tidbits for the house; that trick stimulates the dog to seek for the tidbit when he is not making anything.
