More Dogs Choose Rawhide

rawhide-chewsIt’s normal for untrained dogs – especially puppies – to chew virtually any item they can reach with their gnashing teeth. This behavior should be controlled and channeled early on so that a dog doesn’t destroy valuable family antiques or expensive stereo equipment. That way, dogs learn some manners for the future and humans save a little dough (not the chewable kind).

The duration and intensity of a dog’s chewing habit depends partially on its specific breed. Black labs, for instance, enjoy chomping on tennis balls well into their adult years. The best way to deter destructive chewing is by providing dogs with safe chew-fodder. Rawhide chews or bones should keep a dog’s attention away from the socks and slippers.
