Puppies have a natural desire to chew between eight weeks and 6 to 7 months when the adult canines have replaced their baby teeth.
The best way to deal with this is to puppy proof the house.
It is necessary to keep a close eye on your pup and grab the pup off whatever he or she is trying to chew and replace it with a chew toy or chew bone from the butcher. In a short order, the pup will go directly to chew toy.
The best way to open a puppy’s mouth is to push the upper lip over the top of its teeth it is a good practice to do this occasionally for future preparation for veterinarian visits.
Part of chewing your is out of boredom so regular exercise will also help.
Here are a couple great ways to keep your pup busy.
- Treat ball, this type of ball you fill up with treats when the ball is moved slowly one treat falls out and if is being ignored for more than a minute a little bell sounds to remind the pup to pay attention to the ball. This method is also used to train search and rescue dogs when a pup has figured out how to use his ball eventually the ball is buried in the sand the pup will slowly and carefully dig out the ball.
- The Kong filled from natural peanut butter (make sure this is natural peanut butter regular store-bought peanut butter has a preservative that is not good for dogs) what you do you feel the Kong with peanut butter and put it in the freezer your pup will try to lick and chew the peanut butter out of the Kong for hours.
- Butcher bone, this is a great way to keep a pup busy for a while too.
