Prevent Your Dog From Destructive Chewing
Although you may never know exactly why your dog has suddenly decided to destroy your laptop, cell phone, and every remote in the house, it may comfort you to know that there is no shortage of possible reasons:
•Attention seeking. If your dog starts to chew on inappropriate objects while in your presence, it may be a bid for your attention.
•Boredom. Dogs are highly intelligent animals who need things to do. If left alone all day, even when they don’t suffer separation anxiety, they will create their own fun—with your precious items.
•Lack of exercise. Dogs need to work off their energy somehow. It’s up to you whether your pet wanders the house looking for items to gnaw or goes for brisk walks around the neighborhood.
•Loneliness and separation anxiety. Lonely dogs may chew things as a means of self-soothing. When things get bad enough, lonely chewing can turn into full-blown separation anxiety.
•Youth. Dogs are chewers by nature, and you must expect that a puppy—at least up to the age of six months—needs to chew. Because dogs don’t have hands, mouthing objects is one of the main ways in which they learn about the world. Chewing also alleviates some of the pain and pressure in a puppy’s gums during the teething process.
