Tips To Prevent Destructive Chewing In Puppies


Chewing is a natural instinct in dogs. But the behavior is more distinct among puppies especially when they’re teething. Instead of trying to prevent your pup from chewing, it’s better to teach him what he can “legally” chew on, such as chew toys and chew treats.

The pain and discomfort that a puppy experiences during teething can be relieved by chewing on things. To protect your shoes, socks, furniture, and other valuable things from your pet’s teeth, encourage your pet to chew on toys primarily made for chewing.

Sometimes, you need to confine your puppy inside his crate to prevent him from chewing and destroying things. Take note, however, that a puppy should NOT BE confined in his crate for more than a few hours at a time.

When you see him chewing something that he shouldn’t have, give him a time-out by confining him for a short period of time. After which, you can redirect him to appropriate chew toys.

Don’t hesitate to consult your Cherry Hill, NJ vet regarding any concerns or issues you may have about your pet’s behavior. Learn more here.
