Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
I was talking to my neighbor the other day about Lucy, our puggle dog and how she is chewing on practically everything these days. My neighbor suggested that we either get her a new chew toy, like a puppy kong  that I can stuff with peanut butter or some sort of treat, stick in the freezer for a bit, and then give to her to keep her busy.
I have two beagles (I call them my Demon Dogs), and they will get destructive when they get bored. I have an Akita, definitely a completely different type of dog, but they are notorious for chewing destructively! My friend has a lab that when she was a puppy had a bad habit of chewing on electrical cords so to stop this she put oil of cloves on the cords and the shewing stopped. And also, give her things in her kennel that it are ok for her to chew like you’ve been doing. I also always try to make any treat I give her a game — in that she has to work hard to get it.
I had the same problem with my beagle, and not to be discouraging, but with him, he was still chewing on all my beautiful shoes when he was five years old.


I’m not too sure about the problem with chewing, but my little doggy had to have an overnight stay at the vet due to poisoning from chewing on a Sharpie.
There is a spray you can get that tastes bad & is supposed to deter the dog from chewing. I have to laugh reading all these but yet, I have a 13 month pit bull whom has chewed the wiring off the trailer, all of my solar lights, the sprinkler heads, the electrical cords off the pool pump and many more yard things.
Most of the time, they are super-duper lazy, but since they are hunting dogs they can get pent up energy. Wild dogs mouth as a way to get food from older dogs and of course to play, but it can sure become a bad habit in a hurry, so be patient, and consistant.
For example, last week one of them figured out how to push a bench next to the kitchen counter, hop up on it, and steal a 3 lb bag of apples. That has stopped all chewing, herding and food possessiveness in our dog – within just two weeks!
What worked for us was also lots of exercise and play, and making absolutely sure nothing like shoes, pens, books, etc were left out where she would get them.


The instructor at puppy school told me that they grow out of their chewing stage at around 7 months old–give or take a month. You can get it at most pet stores, it wont harm them, they could even eat it if they wanted (tastes horrible, I tried it). Also, we were taught by our trainer not to give any attention to the chewing or destructive behavior, because dogs often cant differentiate between negative or positive behavior.
I don’t let her take it outside as I think the moisture might shorten the life of the bone. Thank goodness the husband was overseas during this phase cause I think he may have been someone else’s dog today if he knew about it when it happened.
Instead replace the item that she isn’t suppose to be chewing with the item she should be.
