Can You Help Me Stop Chewing?
Whether you have a puppy or an adult dog, chewing can be an annoying and expensive behaviour. Using a crate is a good solution to this problem or confine your dog to an area where a gate can be placed in the doorway. You can also try spraying a Bitter Apple type product on furniture or bedding to discourage your dog from chewing.
If your dog is chewing shoes or other items of clothing, the most logical solution is to put the items away in a closet.
Providing your dog with a variety of products that he can chew is another way to keep your dog’s focus on things that are acceptable for him. Just be sure that the products are age and size appropriate for your dog.
