My new red 11 wk old male is chewing on whatever rocks he can find, edges of the concrete on the back porch, cut sticks off my thorn bush. And also all my sons toys!! He has lots of his own toys and we try to keep them in his area but he still chews on my sons toys, especially the wooden ones! Is it just because hes a puppy? will he outgrow this chewing phase? And how do i get him to only chew on his toys and to stop chewing on the things that could break his teeth like concrete?? Hes very smart and has already learned a few commands but he wont listen when it comes to this.



oops, Sry I put in wrong category..

I would just try to supervise him constantly (and crate/put him in a puppy-proof area when you cant) and re-direct his chewing.

For my boy, we said 'Ah-ah' and gave him one of his toys, then said 'Good boy' when he chewed on his toy :) You could also use a little anti-chew spray on some really temping areas (We used this on the corner of the kitchen cabinets and he never went near them again)
