Puppies always chew on anything they can get their mouths into

Puppies always chew on anything they can get their mouths into. This will include your furniture, clothing and you as well. This is because puppies just want to explore their world and environment, and they enjoy tasting everything. This might cause a problem if there are certain things you just do not want puppy to put into his mouth.

The tendency to chew will vary from one breed and one individual to another. But most dogs will chew on objects in and around the house. Keeping them focused on objects intended for them is a continuing challenge.

Younger dogs, puppies in particular, will usually have a greater tendency to chew and less discrimination about what they choose. But even young puppies can be discouraged from grabbing things the owner would prefer to keep whole.

What you can do is to remove harmful objects from the dogs reach to start with. This includes electrics, wires, cords, chemicals and other dangerous substances. Tiny objects like marbles should also never be left lying around where the dog has access to.

You should provide your dog with the hard and soft rubber chewable toys which are the best and can be found at pet shops and department stores. If your dog has something in its mouth at all times to chew on, they will be less likely to chew on you or your furniture.

A sharp tone or a mild tap for grabbing an unsuitable object, such as shoe or sock, is useful and appropriate. Yelling or harsh physical punishment is counter-productive. It is better for both dog and you to vent that frustration elsewhere.

Putting your dog outside will let it to explore natural items like grass which it can chew on. But do not forget to remove your plants if you do not want them ruined. One tip that you might use is to put a little cayenne pepper paste on the leaves of attractive plants.This will eliminate the chewing from your dog.

If chewing eventually turns to biting then you will need to consider dog training. A dog trainer can curb this chewing and biting behavior which is dangerous particularly if you have children.

However, training a dog might take time, so you have to be patient. Stay alert and keep a cool head, even when they have just chewed a hole in that new carpet. That is expensive and annoying, but carpet can be replaced. Your relationship with your dog cannot.
