    It started with my wooden egg showing up all over the yard. Now he's going after the real eggs. Thankfully, as far as I know, he hasn't cracked one yet. But that would be quite disastrous if he did.

    Any ideas on how to get him to not think they're chew toys? Cayenne pepper on the eggs?

    I would soak that wood egg in jalapeno juice and probably fill a few up with it too.
    Thing is once your dog starts eating eggs its a really tough habit to break. Better to nip it in the bud now and stop a potentionally bad habit before it gets going.
