Here’s a Fool-Proof Method to Get Your Dog to Stop Chewing Things

There are a lot of ways as to how you can teach your Golden Retriever to stop chewing everything in sight.

Here’s one fool-proof way that’s always worked.

Step 1: Make Things Unappealing

ANNUNCI IN ARTICLE

Make things that your dog isn’t supposed to chew as unappealing to him as you can. The idea is to put the dog off from chewing things he shouldn’t.

For this, you’ll need to make a spray.

Ingredients:

  • Neem powder or chili powder
  • Water

In a spray bottle, mix the neem or chili powder with water, and stir it until it dissolves. Now, spray the mixture onto things that your dog shouldn’t chew---like your slippers, pieces of furniture, etc.

The smell and the taste will make these things less appealing to your dogs.

Step 2: Lots of Chew Toys!

For dogs, chewing is an instinct.

So, you should get Fido a selection of chew toys that he’d enjoy and can chew to his heart’s content. There are a lot of yummy toys and treats on the market that your dog will enjoy!

The idea here is to channel your dog’s chewing instincts onto things that he is allowed to chew.

Here Are Some Toys Your Dog Would Love!

In this section of the blog post, I would like to go through some chew toys that’ll help soothe Fido’s chewing instincts.

 

West Paw Design Ball Chew Toy

The West Paw Design Ball Chew Toy too, is a great choice to go with when it comes to purchasing a high-quality chew toy for your furry friend. The thing I love about this chew toy is that it can fit into any dog thrower and keep your puppy entertained for hours!

I also like the fact that it’s BPA-free. That’s always a good thing! After all, you need to take care of that little puppy of yours, don’t you?

It has the following key features:

  • Extremely durable and doesn’t get ruined really soon like other dog toys have the tendency to!
  • This one bounces unexpectedly and keeps the puppy entertained for quite a few hours!
  • This is a standard sized ball that fits dog thrower so that you can do your work why your puppy enjoys a game of fetch...
  • If you’re a neat-freak, you’ll love this one as it is dishwasher safe
  • BPA-free so that you don’t need to worry about your puppy’s health!

What I feel is missing in this amazing chew toy is that it should have also been a treat dispenser.

Let’s talk pros and cons, shall we?

Pros

Cons

  • BPA-free
  • Dishwasher-friendly
  • Puppies have a hard time putting it in their tiny mouths

Nylabone Flavor Frenzy Big Turkey Chew Toy

The Nylabone Flavor Frenzy Big Turkey Chew Toy is probably one of the best chew toys available on the market and comes highly recommended by a lot of dog owners and it works well teething puppies and adult dogs!

It has the following key features:

  • An indulgent flavor which your puppy will enjoy and it doesn’t even have calories!  So, you don’t need to worry about your puppy getting fat!
  • This toy is extremely durable and made for powerful chewers. So, if your doggy bits way too hard, you know this toy won’t have any problems with that at all
  • Entertains and engages puppies when they get bored and you’re not around!

I like the fact that it had a good flavor that keeps the puppy engaged but it doesn’t contribute to getting your puppy gain a few unhealthy pounds!

 

Pros

Cons

  • Excellent flavor
  • Keeps the dog entertained for hours
  • Lasts for a long time

  • A bit heavy for a pup
