What can I do to handle destructive chewing?
Many times dogs that chew destructively are bored. They need more outdoor exercise or indoor stimulation. You can play a hide and go seek game that will exhaust your dogs mind by hiding small amounts of treats for the dog to go find. You can hang a Kong with the dog’s favorite food in it so that it has to work to get the kong and work to get the food out. You can even feed the dog part of it’s meal that way. If all of these activites are done a regular basis for the dog, the dog should stop destructive chewing.
