How To Teach Your Puppy The Right Things To Chew

Puppies are adorable, aren’t they? They have this infectious energy that, try as you might, you just can’t ignore. I’m sure you know what I mean. They will happily dash around the house chasing everything in sight even when they can see nothing at all and they will gladly jump at the sound of your voice even if you don't have a food offering, they are always ready to chew.

That’s right! Pups are great and we love them to bits despite all the hardships that they may put us through raising them. Hardships such as that habit of chewing.

When dealing with puppies, you may notice that they love to chew stuff. From grass to furniture and possibly your best shoes, they will literally chew everything in sight. While this may be okay, it may not always be a good thing.

Once they get the idea that chewing everything is okay, then nothing may be safe in your home any more and that’s where the problem begins.

Naturally, you want to stop this problem before it starts so here’s how you can teach your pup to chew on the right things. Head on over to the next page to learn more.

  1. That anti chew spray tastes horrid, and if the canine brushes up against anything sprayed with it the scent, which is pretty horrid gets on their fur. THEN when you are petting them it gets on your hands. Vicious circle. We gave up and let the pups chew at will. When they were finished we just tossed the hide a bed couch and got another one. Sure beat staying on their butts all the time.

  2. It’s a simple solution. …it’s pent up energy…take your canine pal on a 3 to 4 Mi walk and they’ll stop chewing. ..unless it’s a pup…..the you might have to train it to only chew on its own toys and take it for a loooooooonggggggg walk

  3. Nope wrong answer….they chew because of pent up energy and because their owners are push overs, be their pack leader and take them for a very very long walk/ run. …like I’m saying 3 -4 miles would be a teaser to them so at least that far!!! When they’re tired they won’t chew

  4. I MOST CERTAINLY AM NOT A PUSHOVER. They have me very well trained. Anyways, once they get to be around 13 -15 months they quit chewing except for their nylabones. I have 9 rescues and they get their exercise in the fenced yard. Due to cardiomyopathy and other health issues running is out. I do throw the ball and they chase it and bring it back, and they run the yard and play play play. They sleep with us, they are treasured members of this family.
