Dog Chewing: Tips To Prevent it

By Refadoc, Posted on : Monday, 09 March 2015 - 11:09 am IST

A dog’s inappropriate chewing can be a frustrating habit. Along with patience, persistence and the right approach, you can get rid of this habit. Puppies are known to use their mouths in order to explore the world around them. So, you might be expecting your four legged little guy to chew and spend some time to teach them that it is okay to chew. Here are some tips to point your puppy’s teeth in the right direction:

  • Keep your home and your yard neat: Books, shoes as well as electronics can be very lucrative for your puppy to chew about. The best way to prevent your puppy from chewing is to keep these things out of reach.
  • Provide the right chewing toy: Toys can be stuffed with treats and chew toys can be made from various materials such as crunchy food treats can be great for your pup. Providing your puppy with these choices are going to reduce the chances that he will be seeking out new materials to chew. Talk to your vet in order to make sure which options are available for your puppy depending on the size and age of your pup.
  • Allow plenty of people time: If your puppy is spending a great deal of time in his crate or outside alone, it can be very difficult for him to learn the rules around the house. Keep your pup with you as much as you can. If you see your puppy showing interest in a forbidden interest, gently try to draw away his attention from that particular thing.
  • Keep your dog active: If your puppy is getting plenty of exercise and is being well adjusted to your family, you should be aware of the fact that this phase is not going to last for a long time.
