Teaching your dogs by forming proper associations is key. One example of this is your dog's bed. You can prevent destructive behaviours that result in your dog destroying his bed by providing it at the right time of day. And by that, I don't mean a particular hour of the day, but rather when your dog is feeling mellow and relaxed. This happens the most after your dog has had a chance to go out and play with other dogs, or gone to a new place and/or done mentally stimulating activities with you. Bringing out, or presenting your dog's bed to him when he feels mellow and relaxed (thanks to doing activities with you) can help prevented unwanted destructive behaviours, as well as make it easier for your dog to get actual rest and shut their brain down for a bit.
