Finding your favorite sofa, pillow, or chair chewed-up could be really frustrating. However, dog chewing is simply one of the behaviors of the dog that makes total sense to a dog and fulfills a significant need. Dogs do not see any value in an expensive chair or designer shoe. They will just feel good and it is a strong way to relieve stress, anxiety, or boredom.
The chewing of the puppies is only a part of their teething. Usually, it starts between four up to 30 weeks of age. This behavior of them helps soothe the gums near their teeth. This encourages baby teeth to fall out, resulting for the adult teeth to grow. Puppies, during this period, would also chew as their method of exploring things and similar to us, everything appears to end up in the mouths.
Instead of getting mad for your dog, it is really better to give them an item that you don’t really care if they chew it. Scolding your puppy can encourage him to chew secretly. This method doesn’t address the reason why the puppy is chewing. Just give your dog an object or a toy that he or she could chew if you see him on the act. Praise your dog quietly for chewing that item.
Offer suitable chew toys for your puppy to chew. However, ensure that they are durable and capable of withstanding heavy chewing from your dog.
