Sometimes it’s a shoe, other times it is a rug or a table leg, but quite a few dog owners are not surprised to come home and see that one of those items has been chewed up. Dogs are keen to chewing on things, but they don’t always have knowledge of what is and what is not okay to chew on. Albeit, leaving a bone or a play toy may seem like a good idea, it’s not always enough to circumvent the issue. Books, clothing, shoes and even some small electronic gadgets are things you should try not to leave out, because they might be too much of a temptation. During some situations, determined chewing is a sign that your dog has some emotional issues, for instance boredom or separation anxiety when they are home alone. If this becomes a recurring event, you might need to contact a specialist on dog behavior.

The better trained your dog is, the better behaved he’ll be, and the more you’ll be able to trust him in all situations. You don’t have to wait until your dog develops a serious behavior problem to start training him. As long as you’re willing to put in the time, or perhaps hire a qualified trainer, your dog’s behavior problem can be overcome.
