Keep your dog from chewing anything that takes his fancy?

If we had an extra sensory organ in our mouths, we’d probably spend all day chewing as well. In dogs, it’s their snouts. The get enormous pleasure from it: when teething, to settle adult teeth or just to explore their environment. But it’s your environment too and you probably prefer it without too many tooth marks.

It is important to teach him the difference between shoes and chews. So make the boundaries absolutely clear. Supply plenty of chew toys with different textures and shapes. Then let him know what’s his and what’s yours by giving loads of praise every time he makes the right choice.
