We have a got a new dog and its stupidly chewed the Virgin media cable that runs from the main box on the front of my house to the rear , ive taped it up the best I can but was wandering could I cut the bad chewed piece of cable out and replace a new piece of cable with 2 connectors rather than rip all the cable out as it goes all the way around the perimeter of my house.

Yes. So long as you make sure its waterproof. Some insulation tape will work for now, but give it a while..............

how much is damaged?
is everything working still or is it on the blink?

if it's on the blink, some F connectors and self amalgamating tape to seal.
if its a section that's damaged, then as above but with 2 sets of f connectors and a bit of coax if there isn't enough slack.
