Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Labradors in particular are notorious for chewing on wood, so make sure you keep an eye on your deck if you have one! There is something I am not quite sure about, but I'd think it good that your dog is not drawing an equal mark between "I'm bored" and chewing. If you really focus on chewing issues when the pup is young, you should get past that stage in a few months. You should do good to make him associate chewing with play and training and fun and rewards from you. If you spend five minutes trying to get the dog to stop chewing on the furniture, that's attention time.


Later in life, when you are at work and your dog is home alone and gets bored in waiting for you to return - there is a chance he won't start chewing down your furniture if he doesn't connect boring and chewing. My Labrador I had as a kid chewed a hole through the wall of our wooden shed and then chased a possum through it one night. Dogs will teeth until their mouth is completely mature, and that takes longer than a few months.
Apart from Kong, which is among the few things that can withstand your Lab, you can do your Lab a favour if you give him something to chew on that is actually edible and lasts a while, like dryed beef scalp. If she begins ripping the frozen, hard towel, take it from her (this is also a good training opportunity -- don't let her growl!), cut off the extras, and give it back.


My family is lucky to have two dogs who won't chew our shoes, though they did chew almost anything.
