Have You Had It With Dog Chewing?

May 18, 2008
Are you fed up with coming home from a hard day at work just to find your favorite slippers have been torn to shreds by dog chewing? Thank goodness you found us because you are in the right place now.

This article is going to cover the reasons your dog chews in the first place and how you can stop your dog chewing troubles for good. Not a moment too soon right? At least for the sake for your favorite slippers.

First you need to come to grips with the fact that all dogs have a natural tendency to chew on things. At least you can rest assured in knowing that your dog isn't trying to destroy your things or get back at you for not taking him on that walk yesterday.

It is important to stop dog chewing early as it can turn into quite a dangerous hobby for your furry friend. Things such as electrical wires can electrocute him right in the mouth if he is not careful.

Thankfully, there are only a few reasons you dog is chewing in the first place. The main one is actually due to boredom. Your dog then starts to chew on things just to be entertained. If this is the case with your dog, give him some toys that are safe for him to chew on.

Separation anxiety could also be a large contributing factor. If you are gone all day and your dog is left alone, at least put on the radio or the television to keep him some company.

Animal Planet would be the best channel don't you think? This would help him feel as though he is not alone and he wont resort to dog chewing to make himself feel better.

When your dog is still a puppy he will go through a teething stage. This is usually where the dog chewing habit develops so make sure to direct your dog to safe chew toys and away from everything else. The sooner you teach him, the better.

Fear can also cause your dog to chew on things. Make sure there is nothing that is causing your dog to be afraid or stressed out.

Comfort him as much as possible and if there is something scary that goes on while you are away from home, try and alleviate that in any way you can.

Again, turning on the television can help at this point as well. No matter what, keep in mind that he is not chewing to make you angry or to ruin your things.

You can stop dog chewing with a lot of love, patience some a bit of training.
