Dogs over Humans
Hi Any ideas why is my pup eating wood and how can I make him stop doing so? thanks
^^^^ +1 exactlynot enough chew toys
buy more chew toys
Bronson loves chewing sticks, but he loves his cow weenies more
^^^^ He-He.Am I the only one that sees dollar signs watching dogs chew on wood?
You know, with all the people on this forum who've lost dogs to socks, nylons, underwear I hope no one takes your post as training advice.^^^^ +1 exactly
It helps to sit with a dog (early on) with some prized toys out, and help them learn to love a good chew / only on appropiate stuff.
My dog was toy trained so successfully, that she knew the clear difference between:
- wood stick outside OK to chew...coffee table leg not
- old socks that I gave her OK to chew, but going into the laundry basket is off limits
Its all about setting up rules and boundaries and communicating ones clear expectations...to the dog.
- I use wood sticks and socks w/holes in them, as outside & inside training tools...and it does result in responsible chewing
