Chewing is normal for dogs, but can cause problems when your shoes, books or furniture are targeted. Correcting troublesome chewing is often only to prevent unwanted chewing while encouraging your dog to chew on suitable dog toys. If chewing occurs only when you are alone, talk to a dog trainer or behaviorist, as there may be a sign of separation anxiety or boredom.
- To release the energy
- Teething usually occurring at the age of three to six months
- Dogs just find chewing enjoyable
Keep in mind that some of the behaviors that are like chewing or biting are in fact the ‘mouth-on’. Dogs learn the senses and textures of an object in the same way as people learn something with their hands.
Improper Chewing Correction
• Buy suitable chewing toys.
• Then, when your dog saw something
• Say “no” or “eh” in low volume. (A sound similar to the wheezing of a mother that your puppy will receive as a confirmation mark)
• If your dog stops to look after you, praise and give your dog a preferred chewing toy. Don’t use old shoes, socks or gloves, it actually trains your dog to chew.
• When you see a dog breaking a toy, praise your dog. This teaches your dog that the wrong thing isn’t chewing, it’s just chewing the wrong things.
• Always ensure that the puppies contain chewing toys, especially when removing teeth. Rotate the toys to provide innovation.
• If possible, keep items away from your dog’s chewing.
• When you are not at home, limit your dog to a safe area or open the crate to your dog.
• Increase your training and training.
• Give a good, sturdy dog toy to chew.
• Prevent problems by closely monitoring your dog and exercising frequently.
• Do not blame the dog for being a dog – give toys to chew, reward him for chewing, and block access to other items.
