Preventing puppy chewing

Friday, June 25, 2010

dog-chewingPuppies seem to want to put everything in their mouths.  If this is not taken care of early, this chewing could destroy a lot of your belongings.  Your shoes, belts and bags could fall victim to your puppy’s very active little jaws.  The problem doesn’t end there. Your puppy could end up swallowing something he shouldn’t and endangering his own health.  To avoid inappropriate chewing, direct your puppy’s attention to something that he can play with.  Give him plenty of dog chew toys both in and out of his crate. Make sure to keep your own belongings off of the floor. The tendency to chew could also be motivated by stress or boredom. Make sure that your puppy is getting plenty of exercise.  If chewing is still a problem, talk to your veterinarian.
