Of course they will chew on things, that is a normal canine behavior, especially if they are board or teething. Just picture the damage as 2 times worse because they are a larger dog. You have to put the time and energy into any dog you get to stop unwanted behaviors. Digging and chewing are two things that owner diligence has to manage and redirect.

My newfoundland pup chewed leather shoes. I was home all the time, but those had to be put up. Newfs seem to watch you leave a room and get up and get into things. I never had trouble with furniture or porch posts. He dug a small area when outside, like 1" and layed in it. I think thats just a dog thing. I didnt like bathing him so hes a TOTAL inside aircondtioning dog. Newf's get hot quick being black, even cuddling isnt something my Newf likes. He just gets to hot.

My Newfoundland chewed up half of the back porch, the drywall in the mudroom, the paint cans and thinner, ate the cement from statues and the powder from the box, and every other home-improvement project possible for the first 2 years. Because of this, a huge kennel is important for the start but they will outgrow the largest kennel within the first year, normaly, and should only be put in one when you're asleep at night. This chewing was despite the fact she always had plenty of huge bones and toys, they just have to chew. Mine never did dig anything.
