Why Your Dog Chews on Everything in Sight

Does your dog seem to chew on anything he can get his teeth into? Or maybe he has a particularly favorite item that you always find him chewing on, such as your shoes or slippers? This is a common problem for many dog owners, and it can be a very annoying habit. After all, who wants to put on their slippers or shoes and find out they are soaked in dog drool? Or maybe you’ve come home after leaving your dog for a long period of time, only to find your pillows or cushions ripped apart? Believe me, I understand your frustration!

So why do dogs chew on stuff? There are many reasons that could cause this behavior. If your dog only chews on your stuff when you are away, then it is most likely out of boredom. It isn’t very exciting for your dog when he’s home alone, so chewing things is something he does to entertain himself. If you have a puppy, then he’s probably just doing it out of curiosity.

If your dog likes to start chewing on your precious belongings when you are around, he might be doing for attention. And sometimes, dogs chew when they are scared or anxious, such as during a thunderstorm. No matter what the reason is behind your dog’s chewing, you can put a stop to it with the right training techniques. The most important thing to remember is never to use physical punishment when correcting your dog. It will most likely turn him aggressive, or at the very least, into a submissive wetter. Who wants that?
