Owning a dog or puppy that loves to chew on everything from furniture to clothing can be frustrating and costly for pet owners. Puppies often chew because they are teething, but when the problem is not addressed it can easily become a habit that stays throughout their adulthood. Many pet owners restrict their dogs to certain rooms or a crate, so their dogs do not chew the wrong items when their owners are not home. When your dog chews the wrong items, you may not only have to replace them, but they could also harm your dog.
You can teach your dog not to chew on certain items by correcting him as soon as you notice he chews on inappropriate items. Try to keep items that you do not want him to chew out of his reach. If you see your dog chewing an inappropriate item, scold him promptly and ask him to drop the item. Replace it with a toy that your dog can chew.
Try leaving your dog a variety of toys that he can chew so he does not become bored. Introduce new toys occasionally or take some toys away for later use, so your dog’s toys remain fresh and interesting. Once your dog understands which items he is permitted to chew, he will gradually start to chew only those items.
